In my first post, let me thank all of you for contributing to and maintaining this useful forum and wiki.
I'm about to try my first hackintosh install. About the USB stick.. I've searched the forum (and web overall) for guides on this but all of them either require Windows or OS X. Finally, I stumbled upon this post (thanks, Memorial):]
1. Make on USB Drive (the non OS X install usb drive) a Linux live USB (a new one, you need the latest version of Gparted).
2. Boot off the linux, plug in your other USB drive, format it HFS+ using Gparted and make the partition bootable.
3. copy the contents of the install iso (you can access you HD from Linux) into that partition
4. Install chameleon on the install USB drive using the instruction from their site.
5. Use the UBS drive to install OS X
Is this (still) accurate? Even so, this is a bit too ambiguous for me.
- Which (if any) kind of partition table should I use? Needs hybrid, MBR's good enough, or skip it altogether and go superfloppy?
- How much empty space should I leave for Chameleon before the partition?
- Can I use grub 2?
