Hey Everyone! Nice to see there's still a few of us kickin' around with these old (but very sturdy!!) basic rigs.
I have the "vanilla" Customac Mini 2012 as per my profile and I'm running a mostly working fresh Sierra install with recommended MultiBeast specs.
There's a few glitches though:
1) Bluetooth and Ethernet don't work (WiFi is flawless though). UPDATE: WIFI is unstable. TBH I'm not sure which Internet drivers to select in Multibeast. Nothing seems to work, I'm at a loss.
2) the screen occasionally flickers, especially at login and sometimes as the cursor hovers over menus in Firefox or if I click and drag windows. I've fixed the flicker by opting for a 13,1 ID instead of the recommended 14,2 but RAM takes a hit (1333mhz instead of 1600mhz XMP).
3) with vanilla Multibeast install, my VRAM indicates "Display 7mb" and no Intel HD Graphics and after a bit of tampering with Clover Configurator my IntelHD 4000 is identified and with 1536mb of VRAM, but I think it should be 1024mb.
I downloaded Clover Bootloader thinking I might generate a new config.plist, but it is daunting and I don't want to damage my hardware.
Could anyone share their config.plist or screenshot the relevant parts so I can compare and see where I've gone wrong? I'm already familiar with the BT issues (I've read all the posts)
****UPDATE Oct 20th: 3X a charm! my 3rd fresh reinstall worked and specs are optimal though I'm unsure why. She's purring away! The only thing not working is BT, if anyone can point me to the solution I'd be grateful.
Also, I've been considering replacing my Optical drive with this and I'm wondering if my 250w power supply can handle another HDD 7200 and an SSD or two?
