    [GUIDE] Clover EFI Bootloader

    This topic still being useful at meaning of troubleshooting issues and usage concept, but for updated instructions on Configuration Files and DSDT Patches, keep your eyes here >?http://clover-wiki.zetam.org/Home ? Hi everyone! I'm here to present you Slice's new EFI Bootloader! Clover v2 It is open source based on different projects: Chameleon, rEFIt, XNU, VirtualBox. The main is EDK2 latest revision. Credits and copyrights remain in the sources. http://cloverefiboot.sourceforge.net/ Main features: - boot into 10.4 - 10.8 OSX, Windows EFI and Linux EFI - boot into LegacyOS (WindowsXP, Linux, DOS) by their bootsectors - this is EFI bootloader so it provides RuntimeServices for OS that impossible for Legacy Bootloaders - mostly Clover do automatic detection of hardware and set all properties by default. But user can change them by config.plist - With Clover you may restart into other OS from Startup Disk prefPane - With Clover you boot your OS X's Recovery HD, impossible for others bootloaders - config autodetect by OEM product name - UUID written into config.plist will be the same as in OS - autopatch OemDSDT for working OSX - SMBIOS will be corrected to standard 2.6 - ACPI will be corrected to standard 4.0. Custom DSDT will be loaded from booted partition or from EFI folder - MADT table may be corrected to resolve problem with NMI on some hardware - ACPI tables loading (SSDT-xx, APIC, BOOT, SLIC, SLIT, SRAT, UEFI...) - correctly set PowerProfile for laptops (notebooks), desktops, workstations - customizable RestartFix - sleep/wake fixes - PCIRootUID value (0,1) for device-injection for those who can't edit DSDT - Graphics Properties Injector for ATI, NVidia and Intel for wide range of supported cards. Also customizable. - Custom EDID for non-DDC monitors - USB fix (LegacyOff, Ownership, Builtin, clock-id) up to USB 3.0 - HDA injector, HDMI fix. - Ethernet builtin injector - CPU turbo - P- and C-states generator - PLimitDict and UnderVoltage for CPU Speedstep - patch kernel on the fly for unsupported CPU like Atom and Ivy Bridge - Patch AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement for native Speedstep (Intel Processor) of ASUS ownwers - patch kexts inside kernelcache for unsupported hardware - extra kexts loading - security mode for FireWire - default boot after timeout - customizable GUI: themes support, own icons, fonts, animations. - there is a possibility to implement national languages and fonts. F1 - multilingual help - saving boot.log in OS and preboot.log from GUI by typing F2 - save original (OEM) ACPI tables by pressing F4 - test DSDT patching with F5 - save videoBIOS into EFI/misc by pressing F6 - saving screenshots from GUI typing F10 - CD/DVD eject by F12 and refresh menu after CD insertion If you have questions please provide outputs from DarwinDumper (Trauma tool).

    Since 2010 there were rumors that Apple uses customized HM55 chipsets for graphics switching. Apple Mods Intel Chipset for Auto GPU Switching Inside Apple?s automatic graphics switching | Ars Technica MacBook Pro 15" Unibody Mid 2010 Teardown - Page 2 - iFixit Many trials have shown, that is indeed impossible to set up a Hack with e.g. a HD4000 iGPU and a GT330M. As Apple´s OS does not differ for Macs or Hacks a modified platform controller seems to be logical. With Haswell Apple uses a unmarked Intel platform controller hub, so one can only guess what customizations have been done.

    [GUIDE] OS X 10.6 on AMD

    OS X 10.6 on AMD - The only guide you'll ever need You are using AMD, but you have no idea how to install OS X on your pc? Follow this guide and soon you'll be running OS X! Installing OS X on a normal desktop computer has been exclusive to Intel-based systems for a long time. Since the release of the first AMD kernel for Mac OS X 10.4.8, many AMD-users have been trying to Hackintosh their computers too. Things got easier when Mac OS X 10.6 was released, when pro-AMD developer Nawcom released AMD-kernels and his ModCD. This whole guide is based on his work, so we’re very happy that he did all this work just for us, AMD-users! What you’ll need: A Gigabyte AMD (890X maximum) or nForce motherboard, ASUS AMD (790X maximum) or nForce motherboard. An empty harddisk, the used filesystem does not matter at the moment A retail Snow Leopard DVD An empty cd or DVD Patience! What’s in my pc? Before proceeding with this guide, please make sure you have collected all of your system’s hardware information. The Windows application CPU-Z can help you with this. This guide is seperated in two different methods, one for AMD chipsets and one for Nforce-based chipsets. Follow the method optimized for your system. Please read the guide in advance! If you encounter anything unfamiliar or see something you don’t quite understand, feel free to ask in the forums. The installation 1) Configuring the BIOS The first thing you’ll need to do is to adjust some settings in your motherboard’ BIOS. To access yours, press the key that corresponds to the BIOS settings when you power on the system. This is mostly something like F12 or the Delete-key (DEL). The good thing here is that most AMD and Nforce BIOS’s are similar but not always the same. That’s why we can’t tell the exact naming of some things, but we can tell you what to look for. Here is a list of things you should adjust to make your hardware Hackintosh-ready: Change the SATA-mode to AHCI. By default, it is configured as IDE, so you’ll need to change it to AHCI. Don’t change this when you have a working Windows-installation, it will break it! Configure standby mode to S3. Some manufacturers already have this mode as default. If this is not the case, change it to S3 or S3 (STR). Adjust Boot Device Order parameters. The first steps in installing OS X on your machine require booting from a cd. Make sure your optical drive is set as the first boot device. The second item in the order should be the hard drive where you are going to install OS X on. 2) Getting to the installer and preparing your hard drive The first thing you’ll need to do is downloading and burning Nawcom’s ModCD onto an empty cd. You can download the .iso file from here. When the burning has been finished, reboot your computer and let it boot from it. When it is booted, follow these steps to iniate the installation: If everything went well, you should be greeted with the bootloader. Now, swap your ModCD with your retail Snow Leopard copy. Give it some time to read the disc and press F5. When the icon saying “Install Snow Leopard?? appears, press your Enter-key. Some text will appear, Wait until the line “Press any key to continue?? appears. Press any key to continue. For a period of time, the only thing you’ll see is a bunch of white text scrolling down on a black background. This is the retail DVD trying to boot the installer. This could take a while and don’t panic when it seems stuck. After a while, the installer should come up. You may press Continue. Accept the license and click the button Utilities found in the menubar. A drop-down list will appear. One of the options there is Disk Utility. Click on it and the window will appear. We can manage and format our hard disks with this tool. On the left side, you’ll see all of your hard drivers. Select the one where OS X will be installed on and click on the Format-button. Select “Mac OS X Formatted (Journaled) as filesystem and give it a pretty name. 3) Customizing your installation We are getting closer to actually installing OS X. What we need to do now is to select the right kexts for your chipset. Pay attention now, because this is where the guide will be divided in two. One for each type of chipset, AMD and Nforce. A dialog will appear where you can select where you want to install Snow Leopard onto. In the bottom left corner is a button called Customize. Click it. A list box will show up. Click the arrow next to Custom options. You’ll need to select certain things here, which are different for each chipset. Follow the steps for your chipset. AMD chipset Select the following options: Legacy Kernel AppleATIATA VoodooHDA Networking should’ve been detected automatically and do not select GraphicsEnabler and Sleepenabler! Nforce chipset Select the following options: Legacy Kernel AppleNForceATA VoodooHDA Networking should’ve been detected automatically and do not select GraphicsEnabler and Sleepenabler! 4) The actual installation When all options are selected, we can proceed to the installation. Press OK on the list box and click Install. Installation can take up to 20 minutes! If it seems stuck after a couple of minutes, move the mouse and in most cases it will work again. 5) Post-installation Hooray! You are getting closer and closer to have a working AMD Hackintosh! You’ll just need to follow these last steps to make your installation boot on it’s own, and make it safe for updates that will be installed in the future. When the installation is done, the system will reboot itself. Swap your retail Snow Leopard copy back for the ModCD. Let it boot until you reach the bootloader. Select your own Snow Leopard partition here with the direction keys and press Enter when you have selected it. Have patience here as the first boot always takes a lot of time. Probably will take between five and ten minutes. When booted, fill in the forms given by OS X. This can be a bit sluggish, that’s because the graphics card is not yet installed. Now we need to install a bootloader, so that our system can boot on it’s own. Something like Chameleon v2.1 will do. The one we’ll be using can be found here. Extract the file using the built-in unarchiver. You’ll end up with a .pkg file. You can execute it by double-clicking on it. Follow the steps given in the installer and finish installation. Reboot your system and eject the ModCD. Your Hackintosh can now boot on it’s own. If everything went well, you should be greeted with the OS X desktop. There are still a few things missing, including graphics acceleration. We’ll fix that in the next chapter. 6) Some graphics acceleration for you, sir? Graphics acceleration is absolutely needed for having the perfect OS X experience. Without it, everything will be pretty sluggish and slow, and certain applications won’t even work. This is one of the reasons why it is necessary to have read this guide before doing the actual installation. However! Nowadays, most (modern) graphics cards are supported due to the updates Chameleon has got in the recent years. The following steps can be applied to most graphics cards; if it does not work out for you, let us know in the forums! That way we can search a solution for you! GraphicsEnabler is an automatic graphics card injector built into your Chameleon bootloader. It has got more compatible with different cards over the years, so chances are high it will work with your system too! Most cards from Nvidia: from the 7xxx series all the way to the modern 5xx cards (although not always stable) Modern cards from AMD: HD5xxx to HD6xxx are out-of-the-box, older cards are trial and error. To check if it works with your current setup, simply type in GraphicsEnabler=yes when in the bootloader. Chameleon then will boot with that given parameter. If it works (eg. you have a transparent menubar), follow the next steps so we can make it permanent. Open Finder and click on the Go option in your menubar. A dropdown list will appear with the Go to folder option. Click it and enter the following: /extra A Finder window will appear. There will be a file called org.chameleon.boot.plist. Click and drag the file to your desktop, to make sure it is editable. Open the file and underneath the last line, type in the following: org.chameleon.Boot.plist <key>GraphicsEnabler</key> <string>Yes</string> Put the edited file back so it overwrites the previous one. Reboot OS X and enjoy your working GPU!

    Show your desktop!

    Fun fun fun! Always a winner when it comes to nice threads on our forums: Show your OS X desktops! Do you think you have a nice desktop, or is it as ugly as hell? Just post it and let others judge your screenshots.. Upload your screenshots at ShareBin and use the “OSx86.net Code?? in your post. This will make sure your screenshot is automatically resized and clickable so we can look at it in full resolution. It would be appreciated if you post a link to the wallpaper you used also. You can also upload the wallpaper to ShareBin.

    This guide is now depreciated. Anyone using a version of OS X greater than or equal to 10.11 (earlier versions may work; 10.11 is what I have tested) should use AppleALC.

    9IO Service superclass changed?

    I thought about putting this thread in Hardware Questions>>>Audio and Sound but it's not really Audio but MIDI, and even more precisely a general question regarding an error message about refusing a kext during bootup in verbose mode. ? I am trying to use a USB-MIDI interface called a Steinberg Midex 3 in various Leopard 10.5 distros. The installer package I am using comes directly from their website and it states there it is compatible with OS X 10.5 thru to 10.8. ? It works OK in various Snow Leopards (10.6.1, 10.6.2, 10.6.3, 10.6.6) but not in any version of 10.5 so far. ? In Leopard, the driver always installs flawlessly and quickly with "Installation Successful" message, and the kext can be seen in System>>Lib>>Extensions. When I plug in the interface various things are supposed to happen: 1) the unit's main LED should light up to show it is receiving MIDI power; 2) the Midex 3 icon should be seen in AudioMIdiSetup (AMS)>>Midi Window; and 3) then when I start a MIDI application such as Cubase, the rest of the unit's LEDs will light. None of this happens in Leopard. ? Instead, I can see the following messages during verbose mode (-v) bootup of the OS: ? de.Steinberg.Midi?USBFwLoader is not compatible with its superclass. 9IO Service superclass changed?(in white text on black background) ? and ? Failed to load extension?de.Steinberg.MidiUSBFwloader?(yellow text on black background)? ? Can someone please tell me why this driver is not getting loaded? Is there a parameter in the kext I could change using Property List editor? ? Attached is the kext file. I can upload the installer package too if you can't find it for yourself on the Steinberg-dot-net website. Edit: Couldn't figure out how to do the attachments. Wouldn't work for me. ? Oh and by the way, this product is legacy which means it is no longer supported by the manufacturers, and I got a strong hint from them on their forum that they wouldn't have been supporting it on a Hackintosh anyway.

    Hey Guys, by reading some post and issues...i see a lot of people which have problems with their Hardware in addition to the OSX Software. I'am using now for 2 years OSx86 Distributions like iAtkos or Original OS with MB{censored} or stuff like that but before i install or build a Hackintosh i compare my hardware with the MacTracker App on my iPhone. After i checked Hardware i go to websites like OSx86 or tonycrap - CustoMac and compare if my hardware is listed and if the parts run OOB or some kexts are needed. In 99% the hardware i bought works absolutly fine without any problems or issues. Built up my Mac-PC, use the USB Stick to install Mac OS , install Apps and Programs and it works . Sometimes the most identified problem was the soundcard but i patched it with a kext from osx86,net and everything is fine. So don't worry just do it. Find the correct hardware and you hack a Mac ;-) Thanks to all people in the OSx86 community who work so hard every day that we could enjoy this fantastic OS on any platform.

    This tutorial is ment to be an all in one solution to install OS X Lion on Bulldozer (or similar) AM3+ CPUs that support the SSSE3 instruction set. My patch will only work for these CPUs. I take no credit for the kernel included with this patch. Only the patch script itself. This thread would not be possible without the work of the guys over here. Be sure to thank them! Goal: 64bit Kernel, 64bit Userspace, Run 32bit and 64bit Applications Required Files N{censored} OS X 10.7.3 V2: Download Here Google is your friend! DH4's Lion Bulldozer Patch: Download Here Hardware used for this tutorial ASUS M5A97 LE R2.0 AMD FX-4100 Quad Core 3.6GHz 4GB DDR3 1333 RAM 60GB Corsair SSD GeForce GT 530 1GB M5A97 LE R2.0 Drivers / Kexts - Working 100% Audio Driver (Realtek ALC877): Download Here (Unofficial VoodooHDA v2.8.2 - noise and pop free) Ethernet Driver (Realtek 8111F): Download Here (Apply changes in System Preferences --> Networking) PROOF - Running Lion with Chrome (32bit), which would not run before this patch. 1. You can burn the N{censored} ISO from any operating system. On Windows, I recommend ImgBurn, its free. For Mac just use Disk Utility. This would also be a good time to burn the extra files to a CD, or keep them on a flash drive, etc. 2. Setup your Bios On the M5A97 LE, I restored optimized defaults, turned off all AMD specific modes/instruction sets except for AMD Virtualization. Make sure SATA mode is set to AHCI on every port/controller. 3. Boot from the N{censored} 10.7.3 V2 DVD, when prompted press F8. 4. Boot the Install DVD with these boot flags: "Kernel Cache"=\amd arch=i386 -v 5. That should get you into the installer. I had a set_colors kernel panic, so i used: "Kernel Cache"=\amd arch=i386 colors=32 -v If you have more than 4GB of ram you may also have to use: maxmem=4096 6. Follow the installer until you get to the point of selecting your Install location. 7. In the Menu Bar, select Utilities -> Disk Utility. 8. Select your disk, use erase to format your drive. Use Mac OS Extended (Journaled) file system. 9. Quit Disk Utility. 10. When you are back in the installer, select your partition, and click Customize. 11. Select the AMD Kernel, don't worry about selecting the the arch=i386 stuff for the boot loader. I also used Graphics Enabler and NvInjector for my GeForce GT 530, worked oob with QE/CI. Select any other optional drivers you need. If you are unsure, do not select anything, as it can cause kernel panics. It's better to research and find the right driver for your hardware. Post on these forums if you need assistance, thats exactly what we are here for! 12. Start the OS X installation. 13. When the Installation is done, you can eject the N{censored} DVD at reboot. Press any key at boot loader to stop the auto boot. 14. Type the following boot flags: arch=i386 -force64 -v I had to use colors=32 with the GT 530. Use maxmem=4096 if needed (the 64bit kernel will fix this). 15. Follow the setup wizard. When you are done, you should be able to login to your desktop. 16. Extract DH4s Lion Bulldozer Patch.zip (double click). 17. Copy the contents to the root of your OS X Install, and authenticate. 18. Double Click "DH4s Patcher" 19. Type in your password and press Enter. 20. When the patcher has completed, you can reboot your computer. Now, you can install any additional drivers (audio and ethernet for example). Enjoy your new Hackintosh! Other Thoughts This kernel should support 10.7.4 but I have not updated yet, so cannot guarantee this, nor provide an outline to make it work. Upgrade at your own risk. ;-) I have been having issues with Adobe Master Collection CS6, I am unsure if it is my download causing the issues. Or a bug with being on an AMD platform. However CS5 seems to work without issues. So, I'm happy with that for now. Let me know If you get CS6 working. Everything else I have tried on this Hackintosh has worked perfectly! Absolutely no kernel panics after this patch :-) If you notice any typos, or any info I forgot to add, just let me know! Thanks, Wayne

    Clevo p150em Hackintosh

    I generally dont post in forums, because I have almost always found what i needed in existing ones. I owned a Macbook in College and loved it. I had one of the first intel models with a dual boot windows XP. I bought this new computer because I am in the Army and wanted a portable gaming platform for my travels, and windows was the best OS for that. After about a month I missed my Mac, especially for things such as music, photos and iPhone syncing. Thats when I started my research. I am building a dual boot OS X and Windows 8 PC. I have successfully installed 10.8.4 after about two weeks of torture. I have got graphics (Intel HD4000, not my Nvidia 670mx yet), sound (realtek HDA), and all the other essentials like keyboard (backlight included), built in cam, trackpad and USB 3.0 ports all working. I have an Atheros AR9485 wireless card, and from what I have found this is not yet running successfully on anyone's Hackintosh. For now I am using my windows partition, and my iPhone (USB) for internet on my Hackintosh. Really the only big things I am missing is the wireless/ethernet, switchable graphics for my Intel HD4000 (working), and my Nvidia 670MX (not working). In addition to that my built in fingerprint scanner is not working or recognized by OS X. If anyone has any suggestions on how to get these working it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks specs are Intel core i7 2.6GH Nvidia 670MX/Intel HD4000

    [TIPS]Kexts and DeviceID`s

    Hello Everybody!!!! I am here again to bring a tip to the users of kexts.com ... One of the most common things that happen when using a Hackintosh, is having to make some simple changes in kexts for a device to work properly ... But why do we have to do this?? When Apple uses a specific hardware, it approves this device, thus, it creates a driver (kext) to control the device, containing all Device Identifiers (DeviceID) to be used by this hardware ... This means that, whenever Apple is using that hardware, it must have The same sequence of Device Identifiers (DeviceID) which has been approved by Apple ... In the case of PC, in most cases, the devices have the same DeviceID`s used by Apple, but sometimes this may not happen and other times, Apple may remove a device from the list ... Sometimes, can not solve, but in others, only adding the new DeviceID can make the kext recognize it ... The first thing we need to discover, is the DeviceID of the hardware we are trying to activate, There are several ways to find that out, but the easiest is to use the System Info app. System Info Download > System Info - Downloads - Kexts.com Official Thread > olarila.com • Exibir tópico - System Info ? DPCIManager >?https://sourceforge.net/projects/dpcimanager/ ? As you can see in the image, it detects all devices on the machine and shows their VendorID and DeviceID ... Having the VendorID and DeviceID in hand, we now need to add it to the file "info.plist" that is inside the kext ... NOTE: Keep in mind that a "kext" is nothing more than a folder and its contents form a Kernel Extension ... First, create a copy of the kext that will handle in a safe place and then create another copy on your desktop, and this is the one that we will modify ... Click the right mouse button on the kext (for those using Apple mouse use CTRL + Click) and select "Show Package Contents"... A window will open with the contents of the kext, enter the folder "Contents", and again, click the Right-click on the file "info.plist", select "Open With" and navigate to your application to edit text files ... NOTE: In my case, I use TextWrangler.app but if you have`t, you can use TextEdit.app to make modifications to the file. Just be careful, when you save the changes, not allow the application to modify the file extension, it should be ".plist". If you have other termination than ".plist" changes have no will effect. "Okay, but where do I enter the information??" This can vary from kext to kext, usually the examples below are the most used, and you have to enter your DeviceID (and VendorID if necessary) according to the example for each "string" ... ? <key>IOPCIPrimaryMatch</key><string>0x813610ec</string>Example = <string>0xDeviceIDVendorID</string> <key>IOPCIMatch</key><string>0x816910ec 0x816710ec 0x816810ec 0x813610ec</string>Example = <string>0xDeviceIDVendorID</string> <key>IONameMatch</key><array><string>pci8086,27b8</string><string>pci8086,2811</string><string>pci8086,2815</string><string>pci8086,27b9</string><string>pci8086,27bd</string><string>pci8086,2670</string><string>pci8086,8119</string><string>pci8086,2916</string><string>pci8086,3a18</string><string>pci8086,3b00</string><string>pci8086,3b01</string><string>pci8086,3b02</string><string>pci8086,3b09</string><string>pci10de,aac</string><string>pci10de,aae</string><string>pci10de,aaf</string><string>pci10de,d80</string><string>pci10de,d81</string><string>pci10de,d82</string><string>pci10de,d83</string></array>Example = <string>pciVendorID,DeviceID</string> <key>IOPCIPrimaryMatch</key><string>0x00f010de&0xfff0ffff0x019010de&0xfff0ffff0x040010de&0xfff0ffff0x042010de&0xfff0ffff0x05e010de&0xfff8ffff0x05f010de&0xfff0ffff0x060010de&0xffe0ffff0x062010de&0xffe0ffff0x064010de&0xffe0ffff0x06e010de&0xfff0ffff0x086010de&0xffe0ffff0x08a010de&0xffe0ffff0x0a2010de&0xffa0ffff0x0ca010de&0xffe0ffff</string>Example = <string>0xDeviceIDVendorID&0xfff0ffff</string> After editing the file and save the changes, we need to repair the file permissions ... For this, run the following command in teminal ... chown -R root:wheel /PATHTOTHEKEXT/NAMEOFTHEKEXT.kextchmod -R 755 /PATHTOTHEKEXT/NAMEOFTHEKEXT.kextNow we need to install the kext for this, use the program you want ... I use Kext Wizard to install kexts, repair permissions and rebuild the system caches ... Kext Wizard Download > Kext Wizard 3.7.10 - Downloads - Kexts.com Official Thread > Kext Wizard - InsanelyMac Forum Even with the Kext Wizard you can check if the kext is for 64 or 32bit ... Just navigate to the kext and click "Check" ... After installation, I recommend that you repair permissions and re-create the caches manually, running the following commands in the terminal ... ? sudo -sTYPE YOUR PASSWORDchown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/*chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions/*kextcache -v 3 -a i386 -a x86_64 -m /System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup/Extensions.mkext -z /System/Library/Extensionschown -R root:wheel /Extra/Extensions/*chmod -R 755 /Extra/Extensions/*kextcache -v 3 -a i386 -a x86_64 -m /Extra/Extensions.mkext -z /Extra/ExtensionsNOTE: Sometimes there are "kexts" inside "kexts" as you can see in the example below ... The procedure to edit them is the same ... That done, just reboot the system ... And if all goes well, you should now be working with your device. I hope I have helped you with this tip ...

    I'm looking to upgrade my computer in the next month or two.... an iMac was the ideal option but considering the same specs for the mac / pc builds I was looking at came out to $1500 / 2500, the price became a tad of an issue, and considering I'm heading into my second year of college my price cap is about $2000. That being said I've been eyeing this: Customize CyberPower Black Pearl Gaming PC My plan was to get an iMac and bootcamp windows 7/8 so that I could run anything I need that was windows specific, and I'd been agonizing over whether to go plain windows or drop the extra cash to get a new iMac. I hadn't considered looking at it the other way around till I heard a Hackintosh mentioned on one of the part reviews i was looking through. So without further ado I was wondering if anyone could give me a tentative answer as to if the above link with the following parts would work, and if not if anyone could see a combination of parts in cyberpowers' customization page that would work well for a hackintosh. Case: Stock (CFI Taiji Full-Tower Gaming Case) CPU: Stock (i7-3820 Quad-Core 3.6 GHz 10MB Intel Smart Cache -- works as far as i've read) Cooling Fan: Stock (Asetek 510LC LCS) MoBo: GIGABYTE X79-UP4 Intel X79 Chipset Quad Channel DDR3 ATX RAM: 16GB (4GBx4) DDR3/1600MHz Quad Channel Memory - Kingston HyperX specification Graphics: Stock (NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 2GB 16x Power Supply: Stock (800 Watts - Standard 80 plus yada yada) Harddrive: Stock (2TB SATA-III 6.0Gb/s 64MB Cache 7200RPM HDD Data HD: Pondering the 120GB Kingston one, not sure if i wanna add it though Optical Drive: Stock (24x Double Layer Dual Format yada yada) Audio: Stock (doesn't have any specifications as to what the stock one is, so if any of the listed sound cards pop out i'd appreciate the suggestion) Thank you very much to anyone that takes the time to sift through this or has any advice for me, I'm doing my own research on compatibilities with OSx but I figured I'd try and get some advice / confirmation from someone with more experience than I have. (Also I won't lie, though I say college this is mainly going to be a gaming computer xD)

    Wifi Server

    Hello again! Recently im setting up a home server for web development. Trouble is I only have wifi access. So what Im looking for is of course a solution but to the setup Im hoping to use if possible! So I have a usb dongle connected to pc,(hackintosh) using mostly 10.9 dev3 and i have two wifi routers, The question is, Is it possible to bridge my connection from pc to one of the routers so i can setup port forwarding? Now I'm not very familiar at all with the likes of WAN or WLAN but I have been doing some research into but I need to get my head around it a bit better. there is a whisper that it is doable but the here say is running windows machines not hacks so I know I'm pushing it! Any spit ball ideas very welcome! Oh and I'm using OS X Server not that i think that matters but never the less.. Also maybe there is a router out there that would take the usb connection and possibly solve the problem all together? I dont mind spending to make it happen however the inner "hacker" in me is compeled to see if its possible!

    Whenever I try to boot from my usb I get this message "Unable to patch 64bit kernel." I followed this tutorial:Preparing your Installers for Mac OS X | Computer Software is Your Friend EDIT:I have an Intel computer btw.When I try L2, the computer just reboots and it doesn't work like it's suppose to. S3 version 2 works fine though. I don't want S3 because when I install the keyboard drivers(It's on a laptop) it just keeps typing sevens. I don't want to insert a keyboard though! I want to use the laptop keyboard. I created the usb with Windows 7.

    Maybe hope for once other manufacturers to release their Haswell laptops for it to be documented better.
