Recommended Posts

The systems i have tested on so far(only AMD):

various hdd

gtx 650ti boost/650ti ---- had to add GraphicsEnabler=No at boot prompt for successful startup otherwise i get white screen.

wn821n/tew624ub wifi dongles

all usb ports (2.0/3.0) working.

Samson Go mic working 100% --- plug in play --- very nice for making screencasts!



yet to check ethernet!! dont care nor use 'em anymore!!

Not checked LG dvd writer have'nt used it in 2 years!

wdn4800 giving lot of problems on Mavericks!...gets a self assigned ID...cant pick up the routers.


I coudnt get GRUB to install efi and i went all squinty :P

So i downloaded rEFInd Boot Manager and put it on an external usb drive. (just discovered rEFInd today!)

Booted up and it saw all my linux's, windows and mac partitions ....and i could boot into any one of them...


rEFInd is an awwwwwwwwwwwwwwesome program.



Started using(Mac) Mavericks from feb 24 2014 and so far its been a HUGE success.

Already a linux/bsd user for over 10 years..


Cheers Niresh ....KEEP IT UP.

    • Hello! Yesterday I successfully installed Yosemite (Yosemite Zone distro) on my laptop (Sony Vaio FIT 15E with an i3-3217U). The only thing that doesn't work is the wifi card (BCM43142). I found in my house another wireless card, AzureWave AW-NB047H. Is this wireless card compatible with macOS?   Sorry for my bad english and thanks in advance. ~IOStream

    • Hello,
      On High Sierra 10.13.1 under VMWare.
      I install Final Cut Pro 10.4 when running got this error:
      This graphics configuration does not support hardware acceleration, which is required to run Final Cut Pro.
      My GPU is: AMD Radeon R7 240 but show on Hachintosh About : Graphics: Display 128 MB. Thank you for help.
    • I got same error 4 years later. On High Sierra. What's the solution? What you suggested doesn't work. Why does this happen? Any ideas?
    • Hi there. I have the exact laptop and was able to install MacOS HS on it and boot up. I followed tonymaxx086 instructions but.... the following are NOT working as yet.... 1) Keyboard and trackpad (although usb kb and mouse work)
      2) Backlite control (screen appears to be in battery mode - dimmed)
      3) Sound
      4) Wifi 
      5) battery? I am able to access the internet and browse ok using Safari. I want to resolve #1 and 2 before I resolve the rest, but I am having an issue to determine what kexts to inject. There is no cross reference to this MOBO and I am not familiar with it. Can someone point me in the right direction? Many thanks....
