  1. Upgrading from Niresh Mavericks 10.9 no GUID I hope to upgrade from Niresh Mavericks 10.9. I don't want to have to set up or install anything again, because it took me three weeks to install it and get everything working. I had previously failed to get WiFi working with Niresh Yosemite-Zone.dmg. I'm using a Toshiba Satellite L750-18R laptop with Intel Core i5 CPU, insyde2.0 BIOS, 4Gb RAM and 500Gb hard drive. One mistake I made was I kept typing npci 0x2000 and npci 0x3000 instead of npci=0x2000 or npci=0x3000 , but it's hard to believe that this prevented my internal WiFi or even an Edimax USB WiFi adaptor from working. I think my graphics are 3000 version. I have just tried the official Apple upgrade path to El Capitan. This stopped with an error message saying I have no GUID partition table on my drive. It told me to use Disk Utility to set this up. I was worried this was going to reformat the disk, although I haven't got much personal data on it. I have only installed a few programs which wouldn't take long to reinstall. The error message told me where to look in Disk Utility to set up the GUID partition table, starting with the Permissions tab, then something about Options and Volumes. Unfortunately, there is no Partitions tab in the version of Disk Utility that is supplied with Niresh Mavericks 10.9. I looked around for Options, found some, but there was no mention of GUID. Perhaps I need a later version of Disk Utility or some other software which this OSX version can run. How can I upgrade from Niresh Mavericks 10.9?
  2. Try buying an Edimax USB WiFi stick. It comes with its own DVD installer disk. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/111809505444?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT
  3. I thought I should tell people how I've solved the audio problem. I used Multibeast, then selected Easybeast/Drivers/Audio and eventually found out that the seventh driver under the Universal list is the one that works properly on my laptop, although it's not perfect because there's still some distortion of higher frequencies. I found I could only install this by using Safe Boot and it took less than four minutes each time I installed a different audio driver. After installing this, I had to select Apple/System Preferences/Sound Effects/Play Sound Effects Through. I then have to select Speaker or Haadphones to get it to work. Thanks to Cat and Andrew on YouTube for this advice. When I plug in EarPods, this doesn't cut the sound to the speakers and no sound comes through them unless I select Headphones. I don't think this is how a real Mac works.
  4. Installed Mavericks, but no audio I've managed to install Niresh Mavericks from a USB stick onto my Toshiba Satellite L750-18R laptop, which has an Intel Core i5, onboard graphics, Insyde2.0 BIOS, 4Gb RAM, and a 500Gb hard drive. After it booted up and while it was configuring itself, I even managed to install a driver for my Edimax USB WiFi stick and after that I managed to connect to the Internet, view web pages, then downloaded Multibeast, Unibeast, Google Chrome and a few other files. I had a good look round the installed OS to see what wasn't working and I found out that there was no audio, even after I installed Flash player. Since doing all of the above, I've tried to install some Universal Voodoo audio drivers using Multibeast, but all that happens is the progress bar goes up to a certain point, then gets stuck and never reaches the end. I have tried different Voodoo drivers, but the same thing always happens. When I tried to install any Realtek drivers I got error messages saying a certain file was missing. Eventually, a window comes up with a message telling me that my computer has run out of applications memory, shows me which aplications are running and gives me the chance to Force Quit on any of them, also showing if any have paused and giving me the choice to Resume them. I've tried Force Quit on all applications except Multibeast, told Multibeast to resume, but it never gets anywhere near finishing the installation. On my first attempt, I was trying to install a few options, but on later atttempts I deselected all options except the audio driver and it has never completed installation. What should I do next?

  5. No WiFi on Toshiba Satellite L750-18R A few hours ago, I successfully installed Mac OSX from Yosemite-Zone.dmg onto my new/refurbished Toshiba Satellite L750-18R laptop, which I only got three days before. I don't know about all the hardware in this laptop, but I bought it to replace a Toshiba Satellite C660D which was stolen by a schizophrenic madman. I decided to get another Toshiba laptop with the same look and feel, but which was more powerful and had an Intel CPU, because I'd read a lot about it being compulsory to have an Intel CPU to run Mac OSX. The specs which I know about for this laptop are Intel Core i5 CPU, Insyde2.0 BIOS, 4Gb RAM, and 500Gb hard drive, but there are some more details on http://icecat.us/us/p/toshiba/psk1we-0c700npl/laptops-L750-18R-12477574.html During and after installation, there was no sign of any option to connect to the Internet by WiFi, so I assumed this meant my built in WiFi adapter wasn't compatible. Luckily, I also had a USB WiFi stick which was made for the Raspbercry Pi computer, but claims to be compatible with Mac OSX as well. Unfortunately, I didn't know which one of three drivers for OSX I was supposed to install for it. I installed the one with the lowest version number, but this didn't work. Unfortunately, since then my Hackintosh has completely refused to detect the DVD in its drive, in spite of me cleaning the DVD and drying it with kitchen paper. I hoped I might be able to transfer the relevant Mac files via USB stick, but it doesn't seem to detect the USB sticks either!Before installing OSX onto this laptop, it was detecting DVDs, and USB sticks, as well as the WiFi working. I'm not sure what to do next. I hope someone can suggest something.
