High pitch sound coming from Razer Blade early 2016. Dual boot macOS/Windows. The issue is noticeable in macOS.

4 days later got a Hackintosh going

So i tried to use a spare computer i had ass a hackintosh, i couldnt get it to boot at all. it would just shut down when i hit run clover and that build was a Intel DP67BG i5 2500k 8gb ddr3 110gb ssd AMD HD 7870

i couldnt get it goin so i swapped the hdds and video,cards between my daily and it was pretty much flawless took about 2 hours. the successful build is a Gigabyte GA-Z170X-UD3 i7700k, 64gb ddr4 and the same 110gb ssd, AMD HD 7870.

Now ive got the bug and think i should start a full build w a GIGABYTE Z390 and 9700k

HP Spectre x360 USB bootable hackintosh?

Hey so I’m trying to figure out if it’s plausible to create a hackintosh located on a 128gb USB that boots to a HP Spectre x360.

I was looking at this guide: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guide-high-sierra-on-hp-spectre-x360-8th-gen-coffee-lake.251330/

And looking through it I’m not sure if it’s necessary I use the SSD provided with the computer or not. My specs are a bit different as well:

CPU:

• Intel i7-6500U @ 2.50GHZ • 2 Cores • 4 logical processors • TDP: 15W • integrates graphics: Intel HD graphics 520

Motherboard

• HP 81A1 (same as guide so I don’t think it’s an issue)

Really just wondering if I follow the guide but just install Mac OS on the USB drive if it will boot and run.

Most stable, small Hackintosh that is resilient against sudden power loss

I want to build a portable rig for music making. For this I’m in search of a Hackintosh build that is small, stable and can survive a sudden power loss (without issues of damaging or corrupting anything).

When it comes to specs, I would love 16gb+ RAM, fast Disk I/O and a relatively fast CPU (top of the line not needed).

Would a NUC with a UPS be a solution to this? If so, does anyone have any experience with something like this? Any advice is greatly appreciated.

13" laptop recommendation for Hackintosh with best compatibility

Basically just need a small laptop that can run macOS with the most compatibility. Primarily for web dev and maybe using Logic Pro X. Looking at used MacBook Pros on eBay all the way back to 2012 and what they sell for compared to what you get is laughable. Figure I'd get more bang for my buck buying a used PC and using it instead.

Looking for a recommendation with some of the following specifications:

  • ~13" would be ideal
  • Quad-core CPU
  • 16GB RAM (or at least upgrade-able to that)
  • Upgrade-able SSD
  • TB3 would be ideal since I have some audio gear that is TB3

Can you still dual-boot/Boot Camp windows on it?

Disney in Talks With AT&T to Acquire WarnerMedia's 10% Stake in Hulu [Report]



Disney is in active talks with AT&T to acquire WarnerMedia's 10% stake in Hulu, according to a new report from Variety.

A knowledgeable source confirmed the talks, which come as Disney heads down the homestretch in gaining regulatory approvals to buy 20th Century Fox. Once that closes, Disney would pick up Fox’s 30% ownership share in Hulu. Meanwhile, AT&T on Tuesday prevailed in a court challenge by the Department of Justice, which was attempting to block its takeover of Time Warner.

Currently, both Disney and Comcast/NBCUniversal have 30% stakes in Hulu. Disney purportedly wants to buy out Comcast/NBCUniversal as well but that doesn't appear to be an option.

Cheaper, non Z/H370 mainboard?

Hi all,

I'm currently getting the parts for my first hackintosh (second desktop computer assembly). It'll feature an i5-8400, gigabyte Rx 580 8gb gaming, 16gb 2666mhz ram, one SSD, and one PCI express WiFi card.

My go-to forum for pc builds doesn't really focus on hackintoshs. I was planning on getting an MSI Z370-A Pro mainboard for around 100 €, but a few people said they don't understand why I need that chipset.

Can you recommend any cheaper, compatible mainboards? Or is the Z/h370 basically the thing to go with with hackintosh?

Thanks a million!

Best,

Spectre is a New Long Exposure Camera App From the Makers of Halide [Video]



Spectre is a new app from the makers of Halide that uses AI to help you make amazing long exposure photographs.

Spectre reimagines long exposures: its intelligent shutter takes hundreds of photos during the exposure time and merges the result. That means you don’t just get a final still image, but also a video of the entire exposure as it happened.

Need help forcing full RGB on new iMac (thunderbolt 3) running latest version of Mojave.

It's for my pen display. I can find scripts and instructions that worked for older OS but people are saying it doesnt work on updated versions.

Side note; when the hell is apple going to throw a toggle for this in display settings?

Are you using your iGPU, do you really need it?

I had read that some applications use the iGPU like final cut and preview. I had had mine enabled in bios but have found some stuttering issues in after effects during ram preview. I disabled the iGPU and am now testing after effects and playback seems much smoother. Though preview is no longer able to display photos, but I think I read there is a kext that can fix that. I'm not sure if premiere uses the iGPU or if it will get along ok without, same with photoshop. So the question is, are you using your iGPU? Or getting along fine just on the GPU?

Razer Blade Pro late-2016 and dual booting Windows

I'm only just starting to look into the possibility of doing this. It sounds like it might be doable. What I am curious about--whether it is this specific model of laptop or just Hackintosh in general--is dual booting Windows. I have a 1x 2TB SSD in my laptop and room for another drive.

  • Can I attempt to install macOS to a second drive such that is completely separate from Windows?
  • Would I need to get rid of Windows first?
  • In what order would I need to install the OSes?
  • If I can successfully install macOS on the laptop, does Windows need to be installed through Boot Camp?

Lastly, I'm also curious about performance of a successful Hackintosh build. Would you be able to use something like Logic Pro X efficiently?

1st Hackintosh, where to start (please be gentle)

Hello everyone, I am hoping for a little guidance.

So, I'm new to reddit (this is my first post), so I apologize if I'm going about this the wrong way.

I have been an avid windows user for about a decade, I work in IT (mostly doing hyper-v infrustructre and other windows automation, huge with Powershell). So I am pretty tech savvy. Anyway, I have been using iOS devices for years, and I love them, I tried android once, and instantly went back to my iPhone. About 2 weeks ago I got my hands on late 2012 Mac mini. I put an SSD in it, and fresh copy of macOS Mojave on it, and have been using it as my day to day work station since. For being a solid windows user, and this being my first experience with macOS, I love it, I mean I frigg'n love it. Especially for the actual end user usage part for simple things, like email, iMessage, and web browsing. the integrations with my iOS devices are brilliant. Needless to say, I am not missing windows.

All that being said, I have pretty new Dell Precision 5530. It has an i7, 32gb of memory and a 500gb SSD. Its a really nice piece of hardware. I would like to get a Mac book, but I highly doubt I can talk my company into buying me one, as I work for the 'Microsoft architecture team'. Such a thing would be blasphemy. So, im just looking for some advice for a first timer on making his first mackintosh. Should I even bother with this model? I mean, I don't care if everything works, but basics would be nice. wifi, display, all that. the trackpad gestures would be a huge plus. I tried out a MacBook Air for like an hour, and the trackpad gestures were amazing.

anyway, looking forward to giving it and a try, and, interested to see how useful reddit is. Thanks!
