ScanSnap Scanner + hackintosh?

Probably a pretty specific question, but I recently updated to Catalina.. so far, seemed everything was working, but I can't get my scanner to work right.. Scanner is ScanSnap ix1500.. Keep getting an error that says the scansnap or server did not respond within the specified time (both USB or WiFi). Works fine from Wife's laptop with catalina, so something specific with this machine.

Been stuck at this.

How to add Apple logo at startup instead of “lines of code” ?

Am I missing something? Every other hackintosh I’ve seen boot from Clover has gotten an Apple logo to appear before loggin but all I get is a few lines of code before they disappear. Is it a bios setting?

Motherboard and CPU for Ultrafine 5K 1st Gen

Hi all, its been a while...

I have a bit of an edge case build I'm eyeing up and hope some folks here can help. I'm currently using a MacBook Pro (13" 2017) an eGPU (RX5700XT) for work (design) and play (PUBG). I'm also using the first gen 5K Ultrafine which I love, tried other monitors, and I just cant do it. I know I know...

My FPS isn't the best (due to weak U class dual core cpu) and after watching some videos it looks like there are tangible improvements in game play if you can hit 100-140 even if your monitor is limited to 60hz as mine is (Source: Linus tech tips with some streamers).

So what I'm looking to do is build a SFFPC with a TB3 mobo (I know, its a choice of 2 really) to power the Ultrafine and try and hit 120fps.

With that in mind what are my options? The intel mobo is limited to 20gbs TB3 speeds while the AMD one is full speed but 100 quid more. Then there is CPU - am I right to assume I need one with an onboard graphics chip to get any output from the TB3 port? I know this can work without directly connecting to the GPU as Linus also did a video where he put together a build using a card with no outputs (mining GPU).

Does anyone have any first hand experience with the 5K connect to a 20GBS TB3 port?

Why am I asking on the Hack sub? Because chances are I will try and instal macOS on it at some point and people are more likely to have a 5K on here.

I know both options are less than ideal.

Airdrop/Continuity only works one way

Hello, I got Airdrop, Handoff and continuity working on my hackintosh but only in one direction.

I can send files with Airdrop from my iPad to my computer without any issues. My hackintosh however can't send files back to my iPad (it doesn't detect the device). Same thing happens with the shared clipboard. If I copy something on my iPad I can paste it on my mac. But again, the other way around does not work.

I have tried searched online but it seems not many people have this issue. Does someone know how to fix this?

Hardware details:

  • macOS: 10.15.1
  • CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600
  • Mobo: Gigabyte B350 Gaming 3
  • Wifi: Asus PCE-AC68
  • Bluetooth: Asus BT400

Success: Asus Tuf z390 Plus Gaming + i5 9600k + RX580

Successfully Build my First Hackintosh with the vanilla guide. And huge help from this Community.

Thanks to u/AirPlrand u/Masteer_Splinteer for their posts.

I think everything seems normal ( I am not sure ). Though this is my first build. I am having a few things to clarify :

Those command lines will load at every boot from clover and for shutdown too? Is that normal, or do I have to edit anything else?

How can I test everything works perfectly? Is there any post-installation checklist? If someone post that please?

Huge thanks for this amazing community.

Post your Catalina Ryzentosh / Hackintosh Performance Metrics! (Plus Mine)

After a bunch of help here and other forums, I was able to get my SMBios changed to iMacPro 1,1 and fully utilize my hardware. I wanted to post some Geekbench 5 results and how they compare to (much more expensive) Macs.

Needless to say, I was shocked with the performance. Here are the scores:

Single Thread: 1263

Multi Thread: 8198

Metal: 49402 (Couldn't find


AsRock b450 Pro 4

Ryzen 7 3700x @ all core 4.3ghz @ 1.31v

RX 5700XT

256gb Sabrent NVME SSD

16gb DDR4 3200 CL15 (2x8gb)

Here are three screenshots of Multi, single, and Metal benches compared to Macs.

Interested how users of similar hardware perform, and how Intel counterparts perform on Catalina. Hope to see some TRX4 and HEDT scores as well!

Dell XPS 15 9560 Hackintosh Single-Cable Setup

"Installer is incomplete" on Mavericks

I am planning to install OS X Mavericks through UniBeast (hate me for it, doing it just for simplicity and fun), I couldn't find a direct link to it so I had to grab a dmg off of Google. In UniBeast, it says that it is incomplete while still showing up in the main menu.

Samsung to Unveil 'Artificial Human' at CES 2020

Samsung says it will unveil an 'Artificial Human' at CES 2020 called NEON.

NEON was developed by Samsung Technology and Advanced Research Labs, also known as STAR Labs. The skunkworks division is lead by Pranav Mistry who is best known for his work on SixthSense, the Samsung Galaxy Gear, and Project Beyond.

The company began teasing NEON on Twitter two weeks ago.

Advice upgrading existing built to 4k output

I have a well running build based on the following: CPU: intel i7 3770 MOBO: GA-Z77N-WIFI RAM: 16GB (2x8GB) GRAPHICS: integrated OS: Mojave

I'd like to be able to drive a 4k monitor ideally at 60hz. I assume (although correct me if I'm wrong because my MacBook Air can do it) that the integrated graphics would not be able to run 4k at all. If that is the case I was hoping to get advice on a graphics card that would allow me to use 4k 60hz. My priorities are:

  1. Ease of integration: ideally something that works OOB or w/o much setup.

  2. Price: I want to spend as little as possible. I only need to drive one 4k monitor and I don't game so I don't need compute help from the GPU as much as I just need 4k out.

  3. One PCI slot: ideally it would fit in a single PCI slot. This is preferred but not necessary since I could switch to a case that could fit a double slot card.

Hackintosh ryzen 2600x cpu with gtx 970 gpu

I finally was able to accomplish building my own hackintosh (Catalina) only thing I'm having is there is no audio going through HDMI, and in the about section it doesn't say my cpu and gpu like the screenshots others have. I am fairly new to this and was wondering if anyone would be able to guide me a bit farther so I can be able to have sound and make a cool screenshot too lol.

Does Catalina works on sandy bridge processors (i5-2410M) ?

Just now succeeded in installing High Sierra on my laptop. But Xcode requires latest OS.

And my devices are in iOS 13.

I wanna learn and develop apps for iOS. It’s my long term dream.

Just wanna know if I could install Catalina on sandy bridge processors.
