I have conected the logic board to my tv using the Mini display port

and i have a apple wired keyboard and mouse connected to it .

Anyway when i try to start up ths computer i just can hear the fun going at full speed and no signal is coming to the tv, Seems like the computer is having difficulties to boot.

I try the logic board on a macbook chassis and it works like a charm .

Can anyone help me to finish this project ?

The internal keyboard also has the power button so you'll need to find a way to wire it up (momentary switch). The next issue is the power supply how are you doing that? Then you have the HD storage.

Why are you creating a Rube Goldberg machine? ;-}

An Apple TV or a Mac Mini might be a better direction here.

Hi dan !! Thanks i already find the way to start up the logicboard doing a bridge between the two contacts on the logic board! I think a macbook 2010 is much bethher that any apple tv !! I have this card and i think is going to be the firts propper apple tv


Ah ha! You question was actually how to start up your motherboard out of the case ! Glad everything is working on your hack mod job. Make sure you wrap your dc jack in some electrical tape you don't want to get close and arch on you. Try also finding a external hard drive enclosure that will fit the board I use to have a macbook pro mini mod in one.


HI John, Thanks for your help. I discover how to start the logic board boot I cant get in to the boot screen, I think there is some problem because not internal mouse keyboard or trackpad is connected . Does anyone knows how to bypass this ?

Do you use skype ? So maybe i can explain you better.

Thanks in advance.. All the best for you guys
