  1. You did an excellent video on using Olarilla on PC. I used it once already, but now I need it again, can I get that video from anywhere? I see it has been removed from Youtube!? šŸ™

    1. OLARILA IS BY TEAM OF ANGRY EGOISTIC IDIOTS! After all I did for them, brought dozens of customers for free they started to spread lies about me all over internet = I CANNOT RECOMMEND OLARILA – STAY AWAY FROM IT!

  2. Hey this is super helpful!
    Does anyone one knows any step by step videos on how to build and put pieces together for complete beginners?
    I’d like to build my own but ai don’t know where to start from.
    I’m dislexic, so an actual video is what I’m looking for. Thanks

  3. Hello Morgonaut

    these are some great tutorials you post , I followed your beginner tutorial, after clicking to install MacOS mojave form usb , I get an error VEK Unwrap failed, this is normal except for the root volumes.

    Any suggestions on how to fix it?

    Thank you very much šŸ™‚

  4. Hi Morgonaut,

    First of all, thank you for your wonderful website!
    I got a mini-ITX case, do you have any idea about a reliable motherboard ?
    Wish you all the best Miss Morgonaut!

  5. Hi,
    Thank you for the very instructive tutorials.
    Can you generate Amazon.de sponsored links so European can also purchased with Amazon ?
    Btw, looks like the Gigabyte Z370 AORUS Gaming 5 is more and more difficult to find.
    Do you suggest any new component instead ?

    1. You know, no you want links for DE. Tomorrow anybody else would like to have links for India, then Argentina etc. Sorry, it’s now wise to generate link to all Amazon localizations.

      Here you have some for DE:
      Intel Core i7-8700K – https://amzn.to/2TvJXKs
      GIGABYTE Z370 AORUS Gaming 5 – https://amzn.to/2GWTPve

  6. Hi. Iā€™m having trouble with my first build. Part below. I can not get past the clover install. I see the apple then rebbots to the clover install over and over. Is there anyone in New York City or Queens that may be able to look at it and help?

  7. this was very good, bought very similar components and I got everything working, thank you so much. Your clear and easy to understand tutorial was the brilliant. My Next project is trying to get Mac working on RYZEN any future plans for something like that?

    1. I’m glad my tutorial helped you. And sorry, I don’t have money to buy Ryzen build just to shoot one tutorial.

  8. No I didn’t forget anything. So you need to watch it again. HACK-UTILS is folder I created and put into it all files I downloaded from internet during this video tutorial. So if you do it the same way = you will have your own HACK-UTILS folder.ļ»æ

    1. No I didn’t. HACK-UTILS folder is a folder containing only files I downloaded during this video. So make a folder, call it HACK-UTILS or like you want and just copy there files download during this video.
