As you all know by now EFi-X™ has been creating a big buzz around the Mac world. I have been testing the device for awhile and its amazing!, The Basic knowledge you need for this device is building a PC. The EFi-X™ device is for people who want to fill in that Spot for Apple Computers. They have the Mac Mini, Macbook Air, Macbook, iMac, Macbook Pro, —-, Mac Pro. The EFi-X™ falls along just in there, Its has a perfect Niche for the market. Video After Break.
So as I was saying, I have been testing the device, I got myself a Leopard Dvd, No Modified Dvd, A 10.5.0 Leopard Dvd, I popped it in went over to the DVD Icon, Pressed Return, and it started loading up, I was in their, installed normally, and it restarted automatically booted to the Apple Drive. It loaded up, showed the intro video and I was in Leopard. It truly felt as if it was an Apple Computer, once I was in there scanned to see if I needed to install any drivers, nope EFi-X™ took care of everything. I knew 10.5.5 was out so, Updated to it, through software update, didn’t have to use a modified package, or any sort. Installed, Restarted and I was back in Leopard fully updated.
Windows, works great on the device as well. Remember, nothing from the osX86 community was taken, it has been made by themselves, so please don’t feel offended as if they took something from you. So, right now its between EFi-X™ and DFE Boot-132. As you guy’s know EFi-X™ doesn’t have a big HCL( Hardware Compatibility List), That is a great thing because, they can improve on the components they are already working with, and better support for the devices. So here is the difference between EFi-X™ and DFE Boot 132. This video here explains EFi-X™.
