This sits atop my desk and runs fairly cool and quiet and performs better than my first hack with core i5 750. The blue LED on power button is quite bright but for the time being does not present a huge problem. Much thanks to Tony and MacMan who have always made the journey enjoyable and successful. Also thanks neilhart and beastyfellow for sharing your successes and allowing me to adopt them. This journey started with Tony's Hack Mini guide, which quickly led to sourcing the most Mini like case. In a few ITX case threads I noticed the Viako cases and fell in love. When I received the ML 55 case, there was no Pico or Pico-like PSU even though there was a power brick. Viako's response was that ML 55 is usually paired up with Intel DH61AG boards, which has PSU built-in. Although I had a GA H67N USB3 motherboard already, I decided to at least look into the Intel board, as I had never heard of a board with built-in PSU. The more I looked into it, its layout included laptop memory installing horizontally, two mini PCI-e slots for mSATA SSD and wifi, and the aforementioned built-in PSU with options to use 2-pin power connector or the onboard plug. After seeing a few Intel sucess builds in the forum, and confirming that USB, Ethernet, sound were identical to the DH61AG, I decided to go for the build. Worst case scenario was that I have a mini looking maching running W7. MultiBeast 4.2.1 selections: MultiBeast 1.png MultiBeast 2.png Steps Taken: Create UniBeast 10.7.2 Set BIOS SATA to AHCI and enable UEFI. In Power Mgmt, I set HPET but there was no option for specifying 64 bit Enable Integrated GPU and as dedicated VRAM set to max, as the highest numbered option was 256MB Use beastyfellow's DSDT (http://www.tonymacx86.com/viewtopic.php?f=76&t=41231&start=60) Followed Tony's UniBeast method for installation with the exception of Ethernet and Sound (http://tonymacx86.blogspot.com/2011/10/unibeast-install-mac-os-x-lion-using.html) (refer to MB screenshots above) Load latest hnak's AppleIntelE1000e Ethernet kext using Kext Utility (http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=205771&st=0) Load latest SleepEnabler.kext using Kext Utility (http://www.osx86.net/downloads.php?do=file&id=1948 *Note: I did create a small 30GB partition on the same HDD and continued to clone the main partition after making changes. So far this has proven well worthy of my time and HDD space, as I was able to delete/replace kexts and other changes that caused KP and/or boot issues, so highly recommend!) neilhart had his rig up and running and helped me with BIOS settings and as of yesterday beastyfellow jumped in with sleep/wake solutions. Although everything is functioning well, I am experiencing artifacts and random system freezes. (Freeze occurs on my smaller clone partition only) DH61AG - Top - Front View ClosedUp.JPG DH61AG - Top View Inside.JPG Mini 1.JPG Next Steps: Install Apple Bluetooth module with 5v to 3.3v converter onto a mobo USB header Install Apple IR receiver or venture into IR receiver on DH61AG motherboard Get rid of artifacts Get rid of system freezes Attempt getting this board into a real Mini case?
