If OSX 10.10 update fails for you…

With next message:

“This partition map modification would make a windows partition unbeatable”

It means that some Apple programmers are lazy dumbasses.

Here is how to fix it: you need to backup current mbr on your OSX drive, remove any partitions in mbr except the first one with type EE (so disk will look like pure gpt disk). Install osx update. Then restore mbr from backup. Then show middle finger to Apple (it’s not that hard to fix for lazy apple programmers)

you can do it with gptsync or with fdisk and dd.

It happens because of missing recovery volume. I miss recovery volume because I had to restore osx partition from TM backup. HFS+ isn’t that great and can be easily crashed with few resets.
P.S. it’s all for MAC, not HACK (even tho hacks ccan use that way too). Owners of genuine Macs have to mess with it. It’s shame !

New imacs…

M290X is radeon HD 7870 but at lower 900 mhz core clock. A bit slower than 780M you can find in current Imac.
and it comes with 2 gigs of vram, kidding?

M295X is some tonga chip, probably full tonga chip ( equal to 7970). Will be like one D700 of newMacPro.
4 gig vram here.

That’s too weak to play anything at 5K, they even will struggle at 2560×1440. Only for 1080p gaming.
