EFiX usb dongle

June 15, 2008 1 comment

Latest development in the OSX86 world is the EFiX usb dongle to allow any compatible PC to boot a genuine unpatched OSX install disk. Netkas has a video on his site of the sample he received which gives this some credibility, but trying to access anything other than the home page at efi-x.com results in a 404 page not found error.

There’s no more information available, so how much post install patching for harware compatibility will be required is not clear. The device is due for release on the 23rd of June so more details should be revealed soon.

10.5.3 hackintosh problems

May 30, 2008 3 comments

I had a try at upgrading my hackintosh earlier today using the Kalyway 10.5.3 combo update followed by the Kalyway 10.5.3 kernel update. All looked good until I tried using spaces which jerked about horribly. A look at the System Profiler shows Core Image running in software and no Quartz Extreme. Looks like the install screwed the display drivers. Lots of hackintosh owners are having the same problem over at OSX86, so it’s time to trawl the forums until someone figures out a fix. It’s time like this I’m glad I backed everything up before the upgrade.
