Comments



This build case and innards (without SSD) was prebuilt and sold at a local computer shop called Geeky's as a basic gamer’s rig. Discovered that the components were hackintosh comparable via research, and this build proves it for definite. I had to get SSD for the Mac partition, which is my primary partition. I got this machine to do games on windows partition and render my 3D work on my Mac Partition, to reduce wear and tear on my Macbook Pro, and also be an emergency Mac that is usable with my software and tools as an artist, if anything should happen to my Macbook pro, late 2013 13” since the old 2009 unibody Macbook running OS Snow-leopard, is not powerful enough my artistic needs, but runs as a file server/media centre/juke box and analogue/web TV.


Installation Notes


It updates fine like a Normal Mac from the Apple store from 10.9 to 10.9.5 , and reboots fine like a normal Mac would do, but the sound drivers (Non HDMI) need to be reinstalled. Or you can install sound drivers for speakers/mic after the Apple Store OSX Mavericks update to reduce this time wasted with this issue. You might have to reformat and install windows on the windows partition when you get the “BootMNGR cannot be found” in dual boot.


UEFI Settings


1) To access the UEFI Setup, press the Delete key or F2 on the keyboard.
2) Set to Optimized Defaults.
3) In advanced settings / CPU/ Disable Intel Virtualization Technology
4) Save and Exit.


 

Multibeast Settings.


Select Easybeast, then in Drivers select Network/AppleRTL8169Ethernet 2.0.6 (This is the onboard Ethernet, and it is easier to install this instead of creating a dummy Ethernet, when getting iCloud stuff to work with WiFi Card)
