There's renewed interest on the development of drivers for Realtek PCIe card readers and it's fantastics news!
 
Last year, we reported here on developper Cholonam's work that gave a new life to some of our Realtek card readers, building on the original work of developper Sinetek. It was pretty good stuff and allowed many of us with, say RTS525a card readers, to finally be able to use SD cards under macOS. Performance was however pretty limited.
 
This year, Austere.J (aka Firewolf) has embarked on writing a brand new driver and, my God, is it good! The driver is under active development as we write but Austere.J has started on the RTS525a with super results and he's adding support for other Realtek RTS model.
 
You can follow the on-going R&D here at Insanelymac and drivers are posted here on FireWolf's GitHub repo.
 
Please join me in helping Austere.J in the testing and give him the support and thanks he deserves.

Bronxteck recently reminded us of links Apple publish in relation to creating bootable installers for OS X and macOS from El Capitan 10.11, so here's a link to the related main page:
https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201372
 
Very useful as a replacement to the old AppStore method that allowed registered users to re-download an OS X/macOS installation package if they had already done so in the past.
 
12GB required for USB keys/flash disks.
 
Whilst the information is obviously meant for Apple Mac computers, it's nevertheless 100% relevant to the 1st phase of creating USB installers for Hackintosh computers, the 2nd phase being the necessary installation of the bootloader (Enoch, Clover or otherwise).
