Hello,

I have been trying to install the latest security update (SecUpd2020-003Mojave.dmg) but I keep getting the following error...

I also tried via the normal path through System Preferences: Software Update but I get the follow error:

Prior to trying the updates above I had to reload Mojave as iTunes would not load :beachball: and System Preferences: Software Update showed no update and would not respond when clicked on. :beachball:

Well... now I can no longer login to iCloud through System Preferences: iCloud ~ it appears that something happened to my Hackintosh. I CAN login into iCloud through any browser on the Hackintosh... I even fired up my 17" Macbook Pro and no issues to login to iCloud/iTunes (I did go through the hassle in changing to a new password to no avail). I even reset the cable modem and router.

I then logged out and logged in as a diffrent user and get the same thing. Has me stumped.

Hi, in the guide you talk a lot about Ivy Bridge chips, but my 7010 has a sandy bridge chip (i5 2500s), would it work fine considering I have an RX 580 ?

Hi, I'm using 7010 usff model with i7-3770 on Mojave 10.14.6
I'm going to buy a 4k monitor, because it's usff model so i can't upgrade to another gpu.
I did some research and some said that hd4000 do not support 4k monitor, some said it can work but only at 4k@30.

Does anyone use hd4000 with 4k monitor? will it work?

Many thanks! :D

@trs96 Everything was going just fine (a lot easier that my 1st build) until I did the Migration Assistant. Then it locked up, no mouse/keyboard. Have you seen this before? Trying to migrate my apps/data from the os/data drive from my other build (which I don't have anymore because my son needed a computer).
