    i need help with my ethernet driver

    Try this kext it's for Mountain Line but may work: Don't forget to: NOTE: Install it in /System/Library/Extensions, not in /Extra, and delete AppleHDA.kext and AudioAUUC.kext to avoid conflicts.

  8. @ Rene ? I tried using Paragon Hard Disk Manager for Mac ?https://www.paragon-software.com/home/hdm-mac/ works fine using Yosemite, distutil list shows it created the partition. but when using El Capitan it goes through the motions, shows it created the partition it the app, but doing a distutil list shows it did't really do anything. IMHO, it is because of the new (System Integrity Protection (SIP). ? As you all know,? Opinions are like a**holes?. Everybody's got one and everyone thinks everyone else's stinks."?
  9. I installed 10.11 (GM) version on a test partition, worked ok, but I had issues with the "New" Disk Utility. ?There seemed to be no way to enable the developer mode to show all partitions, (especially the EFI folder. ? Anyone know it the final release has that ability. ?Also the new system protection is a pain!!!

    Is this forum newbie friendly?

    I agree 110% with?kyndder, when I first started my build, I was a complete newbie, and this forum was invaluable in getting it working. Now as a member of the moderating team, I am able to pass on the knowledge and experience I have gained from this great forum. ? Once you have posted the info?kyndder?has requested, we can begin helping you, step by step, and we will try to explain anything you may not understand, as best we can. ? Everyone here started out a newbie, so no worries!
  14. @Dmos,? ? You are right on with using the ?Nvidia Web Driver for Maxwell GPU's as the Default drivers do not support them. But, I think Gurney meant flashing the GPU with an EFI Mac ROM, to get it to work, in the OS. ?On my Mac Pro Tower, You need either an original Mac Graphics card, a "Made for MAC" recent card like the EVGA GTX 680 or a flashed Graphics card to get a Boot screen, bootcamp, or enable boot options like Safe Mode. Single User Mode, etc... ?Luckily. Hackintosh's use FakeSMC, and boot loaders Clover, Chameleon, or others to achieve that!!?
  15. The audio for that board, is is designed mostly for gaming, I highly suggest buying a decent board that other people have built successfully. A reliable, easy to install OS X system, is more important than the latest/greatest motherboard. ? As for audio recording, I highly recommend an external USB audio interface that is designed exclusively for audio recording. ?Before I bought my 2008 Mac Pro, I had a i5 based system built around a Gigabyte GA-Z77-DS3H motherboard that worked great for Audio recording. Here is the the hardware/system specifications for my old system: ? 1. Motherboard:?Gigabyte GA-Z77-DS3H - Just find the the best current motherboard with the best price/performance for the money 2. CPU: i5 2500k -?Any mid priced i5 or i7 cpu should work, as stated above find the best?CPU with the price/performance for the money 3. Graphics Card: NvidiaGTX650 -?A high end Graphics card is not essential for audio?production, just a mid level card that can support multiple ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?monitors, ( Handy for audio production, for now or for future upgrades. 4. Ram:?8GB of Ram- The more ram the better, 8GBs is the minimum I recommend.? 5. Storrage: (2) Toshiba 256GB Q Series Pro SSDs - SSD's are the way to go. Add a large 3TB or larger standard ?Hard drive to store audio files. ? Decide on a budget for your system and pick your parts accordingly, ?as for the audio read on! ? I highly recommend using an external audio interface for recording, it give you "studio quality" recording and allows you to connect XLR microphones, Guitars, keyboards and other instruments. ? Here is my current audio hardware? ? 1.?Audio Interface :?Presonus AudioBox iTwo USB audio interface - I simply love the device! It comes with two combo XLR/1/4 in inputs allowing ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ??you to connect microphones, guitars, keyboards, etc...?http://www.presonus.com/products/AudioBox-i-Series ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?http://www.presonus.com/products/AudioBox-i-Series ? 2.

Head Phones:?Sony ZX MDRZX110/WHI - Great Headphones for use for monitoring vocals and instruments while recording, these love the ear ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?headphones let you hear your vocals, instruments, background tracks while recording and no sound leaks out to interfere with ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?? ? ? ? recording. And they only cost around $15.00! ? 4. Studio Monitors:?Presonus Eris 4.5 Monitors- The Best sounding speakers I have ever owned!? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ??http://www.presonus.com/products/Eris ? 5. Digital Audio Workstation(DAW): I Stated with Audacity, then Garageband, upgraded to Logic Pro X, I also use the Persons Studio One Artist 3 DAW. It is ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ??included with the iTwo hardware. Studio One Artist also includes Capture Duo for the iPad that connects to ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? the iTwo audio Interface, and lets you use an iPad and the interface as a portable recording studio. All you ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?? ? ? ?need is an iPad the audio interface microphones, instruments and you can record full quality tracks to the ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ??? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? iPad, and when you get home, send the?recorded tracks, straight to Studio One Artist, through WiFi and do ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? the post-production. ?Works great! ? Final thoughts: The first step is to build a decent mid-level reliable hackintosh platform, then worry about the Audio, ?If the USB Audio interface is out of your price range, use the motherboards onboard audio, or better yet a decent USB Microphone like the Blue Microphones Snowball USB ?for about $70.00 US. ? Also what is your current system? whether it is a Hackintosh or a Windows machine, maybe you can add the audio hardware to that system, and upgrade later, since the audio hardware is all external it can be easily transferred to the new system. ? That is my recommendation, you didn't state your experience level in audio recording, whether you are just starting out or have experience recording. Know that the best hardware is no substitute for experience, use what you currently have, learn all that you can about recording, the DAW that you have decided to use, I started with Audacity and then Garageband, Logic Pro, then Studio One, all DAWs function similarly, just different interfaces and features, learn one very well will let you more easily adapt to any other DAW. ? Good Luck, and don't forget to have fun!
