  • Does anyone know of a way to force a resolution (such as 1024x768) on my 475? I just have a dumb Mac-to-Vga adapter with no sense settings at the moment. Gonna get the adjustable one soon, though.
    I swear that fan in the Mini used to work. Now nothing. Plus, it stops in the Opencore bootup.

    And now for something different... Hackintosh hardware issue out of nowhere. Im thinking my power supply might be in the middle of biting-the-dust.

    Ughh, the day I had to move my Mac to the workbench and put in the queue.

    Nope, not the power supply. Or the video card. Ordered another motherboard hoping that'l work. Luckily, MacOS won't care.

    Turned out to be the ram (Gskill). Odd, Ive never had ram suddenly go bad and temporarily brick a whole computer.
    Welp, time to solder in some new caps on my Mustangs spare ECU. I dont feel like paying around 500 for a working one if it bites the dust.

    Im hoping those traces are only a little corroded.
    When Apple was thinking of the next gen os (Copland, etc.) I wonder if they thought of using AUX and modernizing it.

    Probably. Apple had been thinking about a next-gen OS basically since like literally 1988 with Taligent.

    Tough to say how carefully they considered it though and where it was in the running, or where they thought it would fit in.
    Poor beat up ole case. Still better than that awful tower.

    7200s case arrived today. Its... a little beat up but serviceable. Never had an Outrigger case before. One of Apples more intelligently designed cases, but still brittle plastic though.
    Finally got the adapters to use my SATA-only ATX powersupply but still waiting on the 20-pin adapter.
