@cmn699 check the quote :)

Yes of course I have been dumping every step I have done in a text file. I will most likely start 2 new threads and post everything needed for others to read if they are stuck in the same situation. :)

I greatly appreciate your help and hope I can help others. lol I kept on venturing by myself as well with the total of 3 reinstalls *whew*

Random question: How do I uninstall a kext that was installed using MultiBeast ?
EDIT NOTE: ˆ^is it in drive/Library/Extentions ? because I simply deleted what I wanted removed ?
Sorry, I missed this one from the litany of questions within questions wrapped inside a query :lol::lol::lol:
I will post the Terminal command for you to delete a kext named myunwanted.kext

sudo kextunload /System/Library/Extensions/myunwanted.kext

Following that you should repair permissions and rebuild the kernel cache.

The above is best, easily and visually done using Downloaded and launched "kextwizard" [see image uploaded]

Metastasizing questions!!! :lol:
There are no Stupid questions; but I am unsure about the answers I give! Time and experience of others using them will pass the final judgement on them.

To be very frank with you, I am not a big fan of boot camp. I don't want to bury my Windows 10 inside mac in the same disk. My main objection is the death of two Systems with the death of the disk :(

With the availability of CLOVER EFI with its mastery over Mac, Windows and Linux as a versatile bootloader to boot all 3 systems from the Clover Boot Manager Screen, independently, from 3 different Hard disks connected to a Motherboard (since HDDs are getting cheaper and cheaper, even SSDs are becoming more affordable) why should anyone want to use Boot Camp?

If you are a Boot Camp fan, you are not in my camp;:) just joking :mrgreen:

There is no need for Boot Camp to run Windows on a PC.
It's a PC it can run Windows unaided.

@P1LGRIM Thats obvious lol, I was just curious maybe it would actually work maybe not. I'm new to all this hackintosh so I'm trying to learn as much as possible so that I can help others that would like to learn. :)

@cmn699

Yip I noticed that clover would support multiple of my OS's such as Ubuntu, ParrotSec, Windows, Arch Linux. Yes its true I used to have HDD's now I run all os's on separate SDD's and storage on the HDD's :)


Time and experience

ˆˆˆˆˆˆˆˆ^well said :)


is the Kext wizard available for download on tonymac ?

"There are no Stupid questions" @cmn699 quote thus me asking you them x_x lol
