Studio Display. Does anyone know if this can be run off of a Hackintosh with no thunderbolt ports on the motherboard or GPU (HDMI and Display ports only)?
I don't think any of that is true. I don't believe there's any serialization. I think the guy from Apple Insider was fed lies and he believed it.
I also think that a lot of these guys are too concerned about putting the second slot to use. They are equating the inability to use the second slot to not being able to upgrade. They are ignoring the fact that upgrading can be replacing a lower capacity module with a larger capacity one.
Which bit? Or all of my post?
I've read and re-read it and don't see where I misunderstood.
I can even personally attest to the auto coding reference!
Luke Miani (who apparently no one trusts…because??? He wants views on YouTube…..):
you can’t swap a 500 gb drive with a 1 tB Even if doing a dfu restore, but you can swap drives of the same size With dfu restore.
ifxit: you can’t populate both drives with 500 gb, but you can swap drives of the same size with dfu restore. jury is still out on upgrades From 500 gb to 1 tb.
apple insider: the machine can’t be upgrade by swapping out larger storage modules. You cannot upgrade this machine.
@pastrychef, at this time, upgrades don’t seem possible based on all of these reports, but if you have evidence to the contrary (aside from the fact that some people think Luke Miani is a dumb@ss—I actually don’t), by all means, please share. I do hope that somebody can get it to work, or that Apple releases some sort of update that allows it to work, but I doubt it. upgrading to larger drives could increase the life of the machine, and they don’t want that. They want us to buy a new one instead.
