  1. The prohibited sign seems to be a known issue with your Intel C602 chipset. Best try with Clover and be sure the kext for C602 is injected. Besides that, I would rather choose another graphics card for setup e.g. the good old ATI HD5450. Did you read here alread? http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/312312-dual-lga2011-hackintosh-build-el-capitan-1011-guide/
  2. By design, SL 10.6.X is way too old to run with anything newer than Sandy Bridge cpus. AFAIK Intel HD3000 drivers were introduced with Lion 10.7, SL is not even aware of it. IIRC, even Sandy Bridge needed a patched kernel. That in mind, you may try Nawcom´s Mod CD or USB and a retail SL DVD. Nawcoms Mod has an option to install a patched kernel for unsupported cpus. The newer your hardware, the less likely SL will work. SL Server in VMWare may be a solution if you need 10.6 on recent hardware. For a hassle free install of SL choose any old Core2Duo or even DualCore, Intel 945GM chipset or better and a supported GPU. A Lenovo T60 (intel iGPU only) or something similar will be a perfect match for example.
  3. No QE/CI acceleration in Intel HD 3000

    Running a T420 Sierra without issues, I´m sure that your CPU is the culprit. There is no claim that your Celeron 847 has the HD3000 iGPU. Instead an unspecified "Intel Graphics" is in your specs. As your CPU is soldered in, there is no way upgrading it with a i5-2520m either. The end of the line, sorry. Maybe consider W10 again? Version 1703 does not look bad at all on my other T420. Other than that, consider swapping the X220 for the T420, which are fairly affordable as leasing returner. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Lenovo-Thinkpad-T420s-Laptop-Core-i5-2-50GHZ-4GB-RAM-128GB-SSD-Win-7-Pro-webcam-/372000244363?hash=item569cf1428b:g:pFYAAOSwhQhY7UOt The T420 CPU may be upgraded rather easy, if need should be. The Intel WLAN has to be exchanged as usual, BIOS may need downgrade and whitelist removal. That in mind, an easy to set up Hackintosh with a good guide too. http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/285678-lenovo-thinkpad-t420-with-uefi-only/
  4. Sorry as my Netherllands is too bad to answer. I´m rather sure though, that you will need RehabMan´s patch for Clover here: https://github.com/RehabMan/OS-X-Clover-Laptop-Config/blob/master/hotpatch/SSDT-IGPU.dsl Your Iris plus 640 iGPU is covered there.
  5. ECS H55H-I

    My wife has a similar G41 board from Biostar for XP still. AFAIK the G41 chipset was not fully compatible with AHCI but somehow disabled. Anyway I can´t reach the OSX installer with that rig either. I did not try any further, but there are patches to get around. Maybe try with this one:
  6. Dell Latitude e6410 Hackintosh HELP

    This is a pretty old thread, so posting here is kind of pointless. For the ones with similar laptops using Arrandale CPU, it should be pointed out that "Intel HD Graphics" is an euphemism for a crap iGPU - sorry. Such iGPU was never supported in OSX by design, may we conclude Apple had a reason for that? With some skills and footwork, it may be possible to enable the Intel HD Graphics with Arrandale CPUs in OSX though: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/286092-guide-1st-generation-intel-hd-graphics-qeci/ I tried the procedure some time ago and gave up, returned the lappy to sender.
  7. M-Audio software crashes

    Sooo, loocking at the specs, it seems obvious that M-Audio Firewire Audiophile was desinged for a G3 running MacOS 9.2.2 or early flavors of OSX plus Windows boxes with W2k/XP. https://www.cnet.com/products/m-audio-audiophile-audio-interface-series/specs/ That said, your hardware may only gain poor support from Apples PPC emulator Rosetta on Intel boxes. Maybe a Firewire G3 would be best, if you can´t or don´t want to use a Windows 32bit OS for grabbing the audio files.
  8. M-Audio software crashes

    Thanks for the info. As you are running a XEON beast too, maybe you could lend a hand here? As for M-Audio, I can´t make much out of the log either. Its apparently a bus error and/or illeal memory access. I would repair HDD and permissions and hope for the best. 10.6.3 is rather old too, I would upgrade via combo update to 10.6.7 to see if you fare better there. Quite a few errors in MacOSX were ironed out by updates, new obstacles added in return. Always have a backup of your working system before "improving" it!
  9. OS X boot loader path

    Yes - and no. You need to install Clover onto the Mac EFI partition. The Clover installer package does that automatically by default. First of, you will need a bootable macOS volume with boot loader installed on it. There are many guides to create such a thing. Such boot volume is needed to get into the macOS installer at all. From the installer format your Disk1 with the Mac Disk Utility, install macOS and finally install Clover onto Disk1. When your BIOS settings are right (no RAID Jazz etc.) the installer should find your hard disks. A OSX boot volume can be created in the macOS fairly easy, GNU/Linux may work, Windows is near useless in my opinion. Back to Clover: If you have a custom setup for your machine, (from a similar hack on the net) you may also copy over the files by hand. From my HackBook, things look like this: (Mac EFI is hidden in userland by default) One method to mount Mac EFI is described here: Mount EFI copy.txt Your server board may give you some headache, gven its your first Hackintosh. Be sure to set the ICH10 HHD controller to AHCI and choose a OSX compatible PCI graphics card. Did you already read this? http://forum.osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/7798-install-on-intel-s5520sc-with-dual-xeon/ Good luck!
  10. A really good bang for the cash, I would think. Thanks for the details!
  11. Didn´t see the glass plate at first to keep off cable biters or poking fingers. An impressive work for sure. May I ask how much money you had to hand out for it?
  12. Intel Wireless kext

    Nice Hack, a Skylake AIO! For WLAN, Intel cards were never supported and probably never will be. Seems your PCI-e mini card is not that hard to reach, cosider swapping it for a OSX compatible one. Note that your BIOS may have a whitelist of allowed devices, so a non Lenovo branded device may not work at all. As for touchscreen, there are YT videos, if you really need that with macOS.
  13. ATI RADEON HD 3870 PC Version Mac 1.1 el capitan

    I may be wrong here, but if my memory serves the ATI HD 3XXX family was last supported in OSX 10.5 32bit. For 10.10 and up you want a HD 5XXX card or better or a matching NVIDIA equivalent. For a server like yours a cheap HD 5450 or HD 6360 should be sufficient. Whether your MacPro will like non Apple branded cards or not, I can´t tell. With Hackintosh, e.g HP HD 5450 or HD 6360 low end cards do work fine with 10.13.
  14. Help me Please / Capitan 10.11.6 install

    Hi slapbass! From what I gathered your HD5500 has issues with the allocated memory since OSX 10.10. The framebuffer for your GPU has to be edited accordingly. Read here please to get the idea: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/318557-guide-hackintosh-install-el-capitan-10113-on-hp-pavilion-15-hd5500/?hl=%2Bhd+%2B5500+%2Bel+%2Bcapitan Intel WLAN cards never worked in OSX and will never do, as you may know.
  15. When Apple changed the USB cores services for 10.10 and up, many WLAN devices were left behind. In the long run, I would consider one of these known to work: PCIe: TP-Link TL-WDN4800 N900 ( works oob) PCI: TP-Link TL-WN851ND 300Mbit/s (works with AtherosWiFiInjector.kext.zip) You already tried this one, I presume:
