Don’t pay as much for things that aren’t as important.

tl;dr {Mobo won’t POST.};

Me and @Rekonnect built a website a few years ago. So I built a “server” and ran server 2008 on it. Our server was very budget oriented and featured the following:

AMD Athlon X4 860K
Biostar Hi-Fi A70U3P
8GB G.Skill Ripjaws series
Small HDD
R5 220 Core Edition

Over the years, I’ve made many changes. Now it’s a GTX 960 with 3 Small SSDs and one large HDD. No internal optical. PSU is now at 600W from EVGA. Also a really old Sound Blaster sound card just for the fun of it. The case is now a Corsair SPEC-01. Put a T92 CPU cooler and 3 Riing RGB case fans and you’re ready to go. I was getting ready to put a third monitor but haven’t gotten to it.

If you’ve been following my rants recently, you would’ve seen that I was interested in developing iOS apps. Thanks to the team at http://AMD-OSX.com and four days of work, I’ve installed macOS on one of the SSDs. I think.

The computer won’t POST.
I’ve tried everything and nothing seems to work. Well, there goes my hopes and dreams. Let’s hope I can borrow money from my parents to at least replace my motherboard. :(


FYI: I at one point did get 4 beeps in post, the system decided to upgrade firmware, and the BIOS people are American Megatrends.

Anything will be appreciated.
