... I've got a few questions:
- Does the guide in this thread apply to the newer version of Multibeast that uses Clover? If not, can you point me towards a more appropriate thread?
The freezing problem (commonly called "the Haswell Freeze") is due to non matching memory and/or PSU. Make sure your memory is on your motherboard's Memory Support List (yours is), and the PSU is rated as Haswell "ready" or "certified". Haswell processors have lower idle power use which can cause shutdown or freezes on older PSUs.- Do folks installing Mavericks instead of Yosemite on this mobo have the same freezing issues?
The Gigabyte supplied WiFi/BT card with the H/Z97N motherboards uses the Intel chipset which is not compatible with OS X. Some users have success with the BT portion of the WiFi/BT miniPCIe card, but most replace it like I did (see procedure link in my signature block). Or if you don't need WiFi and are using Ethernet, then remove the WiFi/BT card and use a compatible USB BT dongle such as the ones listed in the tonymacx86 Buyer's Guide, Accessories section. (I'm not familiar with the Kinivo BTD-300 adapter.)- I can't get Bluetooth to work. I've searched around a little, but can't seem to find anything on point. BT seems to be frozen in the ON position in System Prefs, but it doesn't see my kbd, trackpad or phone in the discovery window. Was there an antenna somewhere that needs connecting - even if I'm *not* using the wifi?
I've bought the Kinivo BTD-300 adapter, but how does a USB BT adapter work without any drivers or app to install?...
