Only wondering if anyone has an idea what I should do with this "new to me" macbook air. ?It is an 08 and I am wondering if/what workaround are available for reloading if over the network or with what is now a standard thumb-drive install. ?Surely someone is/has. ?I am a knoppix seven ?and a half user but have't even tried it yet. ?Does anyone know if I can build a drive from a windows box that will boot this apple board usb? ?If so what format do I want the usb formatted in? ?Jeff
Welcome on my topic? ? I have an Asus n550JV and I am trying to make as good as possible Mavericks running on it. ? Specs: Model: Asus n550JV - 15.6 inch Full HD (1920*1080) Ram: 8 GB LDDR3 - 1600 Mhz (Kingston) Cpu: Intel I7-4700HQ Haswell Gpu: Nvidia Geforce GT 750m (4GB) Integrated Gpu: Intel hd graphics 4600 HD: 1 TB (5200 rpm) (yeah I know, slow like hell) ? It's currently running Mavericks pretty smooth and these are thinghs that are working: - About Mac - Finder,?iTunes, App Store, every app that's available. - Audio (fixed by using VoodooHDA) - DVD-reader (I can eject using F12 or pressing the hardware button, but haven't tested if it can read disks?) - USB 3.0 - Camera (Facetime works?) - Touchpad with multitouch (not perfect but does work 85%+) - Headset socket works (for headphones etc) - ... other thinghs I can't remember or haven't mentioned. ? Now what does NOT work: - On board WIFI - BT card (Atheros AT 9485) - Sleep doesn't work ;( (Using it a lot, so should be nice if this is fixed) - Battery stats (can be fixed with kexts, but which one? NEED HELP here?) - Not very important but: Can't see how hot my CPU gets or what the clock speed currently is, is this also fixable with kexts? - Low priority: Bass socket from Asus (this is going very far, I don't really need it) ? An guide that some people would want (Not complete but still should help to get at least Mavericks running on Asus n550jv?) ? ?- First make a usb stick with restore from OS X Mavericks (search google, it's almost same everywhere?) ? - Then make a clover bootable stick using Clover v2:?https://mega.co.nz/#...CYwI!Cx-GC02...? guide:?http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KN1f9nleMSI#t=0 ? - Follow everything in that youtube vid exactly, because it could turnout differently if you don't? ? - Use these modded EFI files and overwrite/merge with EFI partition of usb (credit goes to my russian friend?amocc ?for his amazing work):? https://docs.google....dit?usp=sharing amocc's profile:? http://www.osx86.net...r/508444-amokk/ Another discussion on forum: http://www.insanelym...-3#entry1959561 ? ? - Reboot system with usb plugged, check if USB LEGACY is on. And get in bios/efi or whatever and change boot priority for example UEFI: CLOVER boot should be the first one to boot. ? - Clover bootloader will show up, go to Mac Os installer (or what it is called) and press space than go to without caches and press enter. - Installer will show up, make a Mac Os Extended Journaled partition by going to Utilities than Disk Utility. - Instal, REBOOT back to Installer (trust me). ? IMPORTANT: Launch Terminal and give these command (change YOUR_Partition!): cp /mach_kernel "/Volumes/YOUR_Partition/mach_kernel" ? - Reboot into OS X (not installer) using without caches. ? - After configuring your system with username, password you'll appear on desktop. ? - Now you'll need to use different kexts to fix several issues: For audio go to this link:? http://www.projectos...p?showtopic=355 Use the latest one, I used?VoodooHDA_v284.zip Than you should edit?info.plist?in?VoodooHDA.keks
Hi guys. I currently have the early 2011 Macbook Pro 15" but its been causing me nonstop issues on the bootcamp side and i'm considering selling it and buying a hackintosh-compatible (ML 10.8) ultra book. Even though I got a killer deal and got $400-500 off, I still invested a lot of money on this MacBook pro because it rocks the ATI HD 6750 1gb graphics card. My troubles are with the i7 processor not giving enough processing power when needed, and is causing a lot of micro-stutter and general load issues which I've tried to diagnose and fix for some time now but with no luck. I've tried disabling the W7 core parking, and force enabling turbo-boost using a program called throttlestop but still with no luck. Its not a hardware issue because I just send the whole computer to apple-care and they replaced the logic board and refurbished the whole thing. OK so now that I've explained myself, here's what i'm looking for in a new computer: *Completely 10.8 Hackintosh compatible (ethernet, wifi, graphics, etc) *A quad core processor of some type (preferably one with turbo-boost) *4 gigs of memory *A kickass graphics card (i prefer Nvidia), and a nice bonus feature would be if it had HDMI too *A multi-touch compatible trackpad *Relatively good battery life *MUST be a ultra-book (under 5.6 lbs I believe) I know Hackintosh is a constant work in progress and its hard to find a completely compatible notebook, but thats why I'm coming to you guys! There's gotta be 'the one' out there. My budget is around $1200 as that what I believe I could get for my macbook I currently have. Thank you for your help!
