  2. Hey! ? I'm having a really slow booting after installing clover. Before it was less than 16's not it's like 40~50's. Booting with -v I can see it takes a big while to load a line that says: ? boot file path: \System\Library\CoreServices\boot.efi ? It keeps there, counting dots ............. like it's expanding or something and just after this ends that the 'boot' really starts. ? All working normal besides boot time. 10.10.2, Clover 4.22.1. ? Is there anything I can do to get my fair boot times back?
  3. I have a GA-P35-DS3R v2. with a n intel Quadcore Q6600 + 8GB DDR3 + NVIDIA 8600 I recently bought an 240gb ssd SanDisk Ultra II :-) Iam trying t install yosemite, but I cant get booting. Using a dsdt modified thxs to René (a great person!) that solved the shutdown problems with my 10.9.4 config (old common disk) using the voodoohda with audio. ? last error (see screenshots) Anyone can help? Iam re installing an trying a clean install again. ? The Installer was create with U{censored} (sorry) and can boot from usb with -x -v
  4. Hey guys, ? First post so I will do my best to explain the situation that I (all by myself) got myself into! ? First the spec: MSI H61M-P23 Intel Core i3-2100 @3.1GHz NVIDIA GeForce GT240 512MB Qualcom atheros ar8151 v2 -ethernet Voodoo 48000 -audio ? Ok, until yesterday I had a perfectly running system - 2 HDDs installed - one 250GB for Windows and another 320GB for Yosemite 10.10.2 runing on Clover. ? I then decided to add a 3rd disk to the lot and installed a 64GB SSD to transfer the Yosemite installation to. HDD Yosemite cloned to SSD Yosemite, rebooted and Clover asked where to boot from - I choosed the SSD drive, it booted fine and everything was great. ? Ok but rather than leaving it that way, and keep the old HDD Yosemite installation for a backup, I decided to clean things out and have it nice and simple. Formatted the 320GB HDD drive where the Yosemite and Clover installations used to be and now... I can't boot from the Clover EFI Partition on the SSD - it gets stuck on the Apple logo when I select the SSD Yosemite installation. As it can't find the BOOTX64.efi. SSD Recovery is getting stuck on the Apple logo as well. ? When booting for the Clover Bootable USB and selecting the Yosemite SSD to boot from, it is working perfeclty fine! ? What do you think, is that the reason ? I edited the config.plist "DefaultVolume", it doesn't help. May be i should modify the "Legacy" part of the config.plist? Or should i give an exact path to the BOOTX64.efi in the "DefaultLoader" ??? ? Thanks in advance for the help guys and sorry for the long post!
  5. First Third-Party SSD With Native OS X TRIM Support Launched by Angelbird ? With the growing popularity and declining cost of solid-state drives (SSDs) for Macs and other personal computers, users have becoming increasingly interested in putting third-party SSDs into their machines. But one issue Mac users have been running into involves support for TRIM, a system-level command that allows the operating system and the drive to communicate about which areas of the drive are considered unused and thus ready to be erased and rewritten to.? Without TRIM, writes to the drive can see significant slowdowns as the system must read and erase each block on the fly before writing new data. But unfortunately for users looking to install third-party SSDs into their machines, Apple only officially supports TRIM on Apple-branded SSDs. Workarounds such as?Trim Enabler?have naturally been developed to enable TRIM on non-Apple SSDs, but a?new lineup of SSDsreleased earlier this month by Austrian firm Angelbird claims to be the first third-party SSD to support TRIM right out of the box with no need for additional software tweaking.? Exactly how Angelbird has achieved native TRIM support on Mac is unclear, as the company has not responded to requests for comment. French site?MacBidouille?reports[Google Translate], however, that Angelbird's SSDs appear to simply be masquerading as genuine Apple SSDs, thereby qualifying for native TRIM support. While the method appears rather questionable and likely to draw Apple's attention, the drive could still be an appealing option for users looking for the easiest possible solution for upgrading to an SSD? OS X Yosemite has added yet another wrinkle for third-party SSD users, as the new kext signing security measure included in the new operating system means that Yosemite systems will refuse to load modified drivers such as those used by TRIM-enabling software. Cindori, the company behind Trim Enabler, is for now recommending that users interested in enabling TRIM on third-party SSDs with Yosemite?disable the kext-signing check entirely. The company acknowledges that turning off this global setting is far from ideal and "for most users it will not be worth it", but for now it is the only solution.? Angelbird has not specified whether its SSDs bypass the Yosemite TRIM issues, but if the drives do indeed simply qualify as Apple SSDs due to the way the model number is presented, it is possible that native TRIM support may still function under Yosemite. Angelbird's SSD wrk lineup is available in three capacities:?128 GB,?256 GB, and?512 GBstarting at an MSRP of $99.99. ? ? Source:?http://www.macrumors.com/2014/10/31/angelbird-ssd-trim/
  6. Fala galera, estou abrindo um dos primeiros "assuntos diversos", e esse é sobre um site que frequento a uns tempos. ? É o?CPUBoss, ele traz uma analize completa e facil de entender sobre qualquer CPU, GPU e SSD, é um boa opção para aqueles que querem comprar novos itens pro Hack, mas sabendo realmente o que vai comprar. ? E o mais legal, é que ele faz até comparação entre um device e outro, para aqueles que querem investir certo, vale a pena. ? Ajuda também os users AMD, pois se no catalogo existe algum compatível com Hack, verá que em custo beneficio, vale bem mais a pena. ?
  7. Eu já tinha lido essa matéria a algum tempo, mas em inglês, e quando eu pesava em traduzir, os caras do?Br-Mac.org?já fizeram isso, e melhor do que traduzir, eles deixaram bem fácil de entender. Vejam que demais. ? Após 9 meses de torturante teste de uso contínuo, um laboratório demonstrou a durabilidade de uma amostra do mercado de SSDs – enquanto isso, o próprio mercado demonstra quais as marcas que merecem o seu investimento. ? “Como prever a durabilidade de um SSD?” ? Um aspecto me despertava a curiosidade, e até certa preocupação: a durabilidade dos SSDs. Enquanto um HD mecânico tradicional frequentemente encontra o seu final de vida dando vários sintomas, como ruídos e erros cada vez mais frequentes, com os SSDs eu não tenho experiência prévia e não sabia o que esperar. ? Mas,?graças aos testes feitos pelo Tech Report, fiquei bem mais tranquilo. ? Eles pegaram SSDs da Corsair, Intel, Kingston e Samsung, todos na faixa dos 250GB de capacidade e voltados ao consumidor final, e?colocaram eles para funcionar em um regime de tortura, com uso contínuo. ? O teste durou meses (começou em agosto do ano passado...), e todos os drives ultrapassaram o limite de falhas divulgados pelos fabricantes – todos passaram de pelo menos 700TB (700. bytes, na escala decimal adotada) de escrita antes de falhar. Como eram drives de 250GB, calcule quantas vezes eles foram completamente escritos e reescritos até chegar a esse número... ? “Ultrapassando a barreira dos petabytes” ? Além disso, 3 dos drives testados (Corsair Neutron GTX, Samsung 840 Pro e Kingston HyperX 3K) ultrapassaram a barreira de 1 PB (petabyte - equivalente a bytes na escala decimal utilizada) de escrita. Além dessas informações interessantes para orientar escolhas de compra, os testes também indicaram o que cada drive apresentou como indicativo de que estava prestes a falhar, resolvendo a minha dúvida inicial. ? “SSD não é tudo igual: é preciso conhecer as marcas” ? Além do aspecto da durabilidade, é necessário considerar mais algumas informações sobre os diversos fornecedores de SSD do mercado atual. No começo do mês, o site?StorageReview publicou uma síntese sobre as marcas de SSD que oferecem algum diferencial: Samsung, Crucial/Micron, OCZ (Toshiba), SanDisk, Intel e (em breve) Seagate. ? Segundo a análise, só essas marcas valem o investimento, porque produzem ou têm acesso a algum recurso superior aos dos outros: a SanDisk tem tanta confiança nos seus SSDs que começou a oferecer 10 anos de garantia em alguns deles, a Samsung, a OCZ e a Micron dominam recursos que permitem oferecer os menores preços por GB e manter bom desempenho nos produtos, e os processos da Intel são garantia de qualidade. ? E os outros? São a segunda categoria, cada vez mais espremida para baixo. Alguns copiam (mal e com atraso) o projeto dos líderes, outros incluem controladores de baixa qualidade em seus SSDs para conseguir reduzir o preço, etc. A lista de marcas mencionada nessas categorias de indesejáveis inclui: ADATA, Kingston, Corsair, Mushkin, PNY, WD, HSGT, e Plextor. ? “Truques sujos apontados nas práticas da Kingston e PNY” ? Notou que a Kingston figura tanto na lista dos drives que aguentaram até o limite de 1PB quanto na das marcas de segunda linha? Essa aparente contradição pode ter uma explicação simples: a?Kingston e a PNY estão sendo acusadas de um truque sujo: lançar os primeiros produtos de cada modelo de SSD com componentes de qualidade superior, aguardar os testes e reviews independentes atestando a sua qualidade e desempenho, e aí mudar profundamente a lista de componentes e processos de fabricação sem mudar a identificação do modelo, para reduzir seus custos e aproveitar a boa reputação das fornadas iniciais. ? Isso não significa que todos os produtos dessas marcas são ruins, ou que alguma ilegalidade foi cometida, mas as decisões do consumidor tendem a ficar melhores quando ele conhece as práticas dos fornecedores. ? Com esse conjunto de informações, vai ficar mais fácil escolher meus próximos SSDs! ? Fonte:?Br-Mac.org
  8.

  10. Hi, I made myself a Clover r1198 USB stick in UEFI mode, which can boot my Mountain Lion installation on my HDD without any problem, sleep works also. Today I cloned my installation with Carbon Copy Cloner on a Samsung SSD 840 Pro, and the sleep isn't working. It gets a kernel panic or simply shuts down. What I don't understand is, why I can sleep fine from my HDD but not from the SSD which is a 1:1 clone of it. Does anybody have a idea, what the problem could be? Thanks in advance!
  11. I burned IATKOS onto a disk and then went to the setup and went to Disk Utility and it only detects my 1TB Hardrive and not my 60 GB SSD... I tried re plugging sata cables and mixing around power cables for sata devices but nothing works... except for the 1TB hardrive
  12. ...it shouldn't be this hard! I am trying to clone a functional Hackintosh HDD (OSX 10.6.7) to a new OCZ Vertex 3 120GB SSD on my Dell Mini 10v, using Carbon Copy Cloner and various bootloaders (tried one after another) to properly prepare the new drive. CCC cloned just fine, but when inserted into the Dell, the SSD gets stuck at the Apple logo / icon. When loading Mulitbeast w/ Chimera: Apple Logo is stretched, like it's not displaying correctly. No spinning pinwheel. Booting with a -v flag starts verbose mode (with a grey background screen), but then quickly disappears into a black screen and freezes with no verbosity. I think the last several lines that are displayed before blackness starts with "UHCI Controller: ..." When loading NetbookInstaller 0.8.5pre, the Apple logo is correctly displayed and I get a pinwheel, but it stays like that indefinitely. I am, however, able to boot in verbose mode. Here is the screenshot where it freezes. I have also tried several Chameleon bootloaders, but none work. I was expecting to use some of the great software many of you have written and contributed to, so I'm baffled as to why this won't work. Ideas? Thanks very much in advance, you Gods of Hack. `Tom
  13. Hey, I have finally got my Hack Pro up and running, and am starting to add my media. I have one 60G solid state drive and two 1Tb drives. The problem is, i can't figure out how to add music to itunes without filling up my SSD. Is there a way to install itunes on one of the HHDs? or can you configure idtunes to run from the HHD? All my music is on the HHD. Thanks in advance
  14. Hi all - need help here. Have a new OWC SSD 120G drive (Mercury Extreme). When I tried to clone my current drive to it, either it or the system unmounted it. I did successfully partition it with Disk Util. Then CCC couldn't complete the backup from my main drive. I repartitioned the SSD and tried installing Snow Leo from the DVD -- got into the install and then crashed with KP on reboot. I disconnected the SSD, started up, reconnected -- all this with it as an internal SATA -- it showed up on the desktop. I opened it and found a bunch of files from the first clone attempt that had red circles with lines through symbols. Tried erasing in Disk Util. with zeroing out the data and the erase failed with error = "Assert: Internal Error or Unimplemented" This is the second of these drives giving the same symptoms. I can (and did) back up to a regular HD no problem, so it seems that SATA is OK with regular SATA-3 drives -- used both Superduper! and CCC for cloning, AOK. Is there a BIOS setting issue here? Anyone have this experience or a solution -- see my sig for system details.
