Hello,
I bought the ZOTAC ZBOX EI 750:
https://www.zotac.com/us/product/mini_pcs/ei750

It's spec are:

CPU - Intel Core i7 4770R
GPU - Intel HD5200 Iris Pro (128MB Embedded)
Chipset - Intel HM87.
Audio - Realtek ALC892-GR
Ethernet - Realtek RTL8111F
WiFi - Intel AC3160
Bluetooth - [Will Update Later]

I added Corsair 2 x 8GB as RAM.
I'm using Samsung 850 PRO SSD.

This a beautiful small and powerful machine.

I followed this guide:
http://www.tonymacx86.com/mavericks...-how-install-os-x-mavericks-using-clover.html

Though I used OS X Yosemite.

Used the "config.plist-Intel-HD4600-desktop-fixed.zip" as plist.
The rest are taken from the Gigabyte Brix Pro guide:

http://www.tonymacx86.com/mavericks...uide-gigabyte-brix-brix-pro-using-clover.html

Pay attention, the plist at the Gigabyte Brix Pro won't work (Cause reboots).

I'll later ZIP all files to one file.

I used the "Legacy" method and chose "Legacy" boot at the BIOS of the IE750.

The LAN and GPU works.

Now I'm trying to get the Sound, TRIM and WiFi to work.
Any suggestions? How can I see whether the TRIM works or not?

Thank You.

I think you mean EI750, not IE.

Was wondering if anyone had looked at this.. Looks like a powerful Hackinstosh.. though for the money, I'd probably go with the EN760 myself.. i5 Quad-core but has the nVidia 860M.. much more GPU power IMHO..

Hi,
Yes, it is EI750, yet it doesn't let me update the Thread Title.

I still couldn't make the sound work, yet I think I will give it another try when I try to install El Capitan.

I wish for updated Guide using Clover for El Capitan.

Thank You.

Anyone can suggest how to do a clean install of macOS 10.15 (Catalina) on this? Will the regular guide work? What patches who'll I chose?
