As the site has grown so has the amount of work. I am working on many projects and have come to the point that I need some Staff Volunteers so that I can continue to grow. What I am looking for are users who have the time to dedicate to the site, have technical writing abilities and have a solid understanding how Mac OS X works on a Hackintosh. If you are interested you can email me at my new email: akern@RampageDev.com and tell me why you would be a good fit for the site. Looking forward to expanding the site and the team.
I have finally completed the updates for Asus Haswell SSDT’s. Sorry for the length of time it took for the next release for the Asus SSDT’s. On Saturday morning the DMG will see a update.
Released. Also updated is the Clover Config File. Please post new IOregs here after installing and rebooting.
At the end of the month Intel will be releasing Haswell E on there new LGA 2011 socket. All the know boards at this time can be found here. Newegg has already listed DDR4 Quad Channel kits for sale in preparation to this release. My question is who is looking to move to the new socket for there Hackintosh?
Asus x99 Deluxe will suport Thunderbolt via a expansion card.
The Haswell DMG has been updated. I added some new boards and corrected some SSDT’s. The folders with gray icons need to be confirmed for full functionality. Also Clover support has been added to the DMG. Using Clover as your boot loader is recommended for long term support. The Read Me still needs to be updated for Clover. Let me know if something is wrong. More to come over the weekend such as 9-Series Audio.
Power Gadget crash for Gigabyte 8-Series boards fixed. Asus SSDT’s will be updated today.
Today I am releasing a guide for Intel HD Graphics. A direct link to the guide can be found under DSDT Edits 2 and a direct link can be found here. This guide supports HD3000, HD4000, HD4400 and HD4600. Let me know what you think about the guide and what I have missed. If the sections are blank that means they are not done so for the time being ignore these sections.
This weekend the Haswell DMG will see its next update. Based on IOregs and feedback I have been able to improve the existing SSDT’s on the DMG. I will also be adding lower end Haswell Motherboards to the DMG. I will need users to continue to provide DSDT and IOregs for all Motherboards after installing the provided SSDT.
The x79 DMG will see a new series of BETA SSDT edits for minor improvements and to address the RTC patch not working for Asus motherboards with onboard Wifi. More third party Kexts have also been added under Community Drivers and Patches.
I am currently working on a guide for enabling full support for AMD 2xx series GPUS. If you are looking to buy a AMD 2xx series GPU I would recommend against it. Considering that AMD has only 2 non BETA drivers for Windows this year raises concern about how interested they are in correcting the issue they have under Mac OS X. 270X is the most stable card under Mac OS X from the 2xx series at this time. Also ASUS models are the best brand due to a BIOS that works under Mac OS X.
Next week I will be discussing Mac OS X 10.10 and how to begin to prepare for the new release.
Last I want to emphasize end users to follow the documentation followed on the Install guide and the Read Me on the DMG. Also make sure that when you do a new install to re-download the DMG the same day as you are doing so as many issue being reported as of late have been from older versions of the DMG which can be avoided if the end user would do so. Lets make this easier for all of us. My method is a manual method so that you can learn how a Hackintosh works so that you the end user is not blindly following me like we all know another site wants you to be. Read and become educated and share your knowledge.
I need IOreg’s and feedback from the Haswell DMG. Please post a IOreg here and any problems you are having. The more feedback I receive the more I can improve the DMG.
