Looks cool. Have you found anything on Hackintosh on Haswell systems? Can't seem to find anyone who's tried it yet. frown.gif

Yep - look here

There is no doubt about that whenever I will upgrade it will be to a Haswell (don't seem to give much sense not to, except that the current i5/i7 will fall in price)

Fantastic! My boards even on the list biggrin.gif
Thanks a bunch!!


I agree, the Ivy's would be great value when the Haswell products become more mainstream. smile.gif
And of course, they are more thoroughly tested on Hackintosh. thumb.gif

Yes, I am not done yet...

Ran into some trouble - reason: The pink flickering issue also covered apps that use hardware acceleration (which means encoders or games). So pretty damn useless...
Needed a fix!

Found out it had something to do with the driver I had installed and the SMBios used (Mac Mini 2013 6.2), but when I tried to change my SMBios something came up:





Should not have been so difficult to fix, but after a few tries I gave up, deleted my RAID and installed all over... Also, part of it is that my boot loader and some other few tidbits has been updated since I first installed (due to them being now Mavericks ready), so seems to be a good time to reinstall.

When I was at it re-installing the OS a package arrived:





My second WD MyBook Studio - the most silent external hard drive I have ever used.
I already own the 1TB edition, but here is the 2TB - for a total of 2+1+0.480 = 3.48TB space!
I have not told, but I am replacing a broken NAS with this machine so need a good deal of space for everything we have.



These drives are beauties, black and anodised alu, mmm... FireWire 800 FTW!

Back to the installs...





"Thank you, your HACK is setup and ready to use" biggrin.gif



"Start using your HACK!"

Let me show you a few of the other things I have been doing in between installs, actually I have just installed the last things so the machine is at the moment doing it´s final backups (which will take a few days as they are both online and on location).

First up I think I have forgot to show how I made this work on RAID, because that is not completely straight forward, following this guide and it will work.

When the installs was done it was time for some few more mods, like this one.

Resulted in this:









And now the star of the show:



Pretty awesome, right? wink.gif


Among other news I am also using a little piece of clever software called TotalSpaces:





Gives me total control over my spaces, I can use both my magic trackpad or a key combination and it brings up one of the two views above, both with their own benefits.
Also gives me the ability to name my spaces, a really nice feature Apple seem to have forgotten.


Same guy who make TotalSpaces also makes a free little tool that removes all the .ds files that clutter up my FAT formated USB drives (my work and my wife use windows, so I can´t abandon it totally).

Another little trick up my sleeve is a widget called inGrid, makes it possible to align your widgets nicely.




Before I go, a view of my desktop where the GeekTool is living:



GeekTool gives me the date and local weather right on the wallpaper.

I am thinking I better shoot a video of the whole thing, machine, setup and software - when I am completely done. This is a master piece!



//I´ll be back

Yes, NOW I am done!

Final pictures have ended up on my Flickr which will be updated with full blog in native resolution for those who are curious.

Here you have a few of them:











See more at my flickr here.


Btw, the quick will notice the new geeklets on my wallpaper and the mods I have done to the menubar and dock - check out my modified geeklets, DockMod, how I have hidden Synkron apps dock icon, hidden a few rarely used menubar icons and in the end fixed the last strange hiccup.


This machine runs smooth as butter now!
Could be slightly faster in terms of CPU, but im waiting for the 3770T or S to go down in price - I have reached well beyond all my requirements already.

Thank you for following my little diary smile.gif
Hope I inspired a few.



//Enjoy!

Just wondering if Hackintosh is now open to discuss on OCN I didn't know of any rule changes. But I would be happy to be informed if that is the case and its true. I got a dual booting system myself.
