Hi,

Let me introduce myself.
I'm Hans and live in the Netherlands.
A few weeks ago I managed to build my first Mac based on a gigabyte MB
I face one annoying issue that I could not get really fixed.
hopefully this forum will help me.
I will start a new topic with this issue.

I went through a lot of tutorials, instructions, installed different kext and still stuck. So... this means, you'll see my posts more often around here.

Hello all.

I'm a career-long mac user who's just found out about Hackintosh computers and figure it could be a great way to finally get some use ouut of an old Acer Aspire One I've got kicking around in the office somewhere (bought it, but couldn't ge on with windows)

Hopefully the members of this fine forum will be able to help me on my way and in turn perhaps I'll be able to help others. Suspect you all know OSX far better than I do though. As long as my Mac turns on on a monday and works 'til friday I'm a happy chappy - never stop to think about the voodoo going on under the surface. Guess that'll have to change now.

Greetings! I'm posting this from my freshly minted Hachintosh running OSX 10.6.8! I also own two iMacs (19" & 24"). Thanks for all the info I've gleaned from this and other hackintosh sites. There is a lot of information and how-to's out there as well as install and kext packages that made the task a whole lot easier. This hackintosh is one "community-created" machine!
Irvin.

Oh hi, I'm frank, I guess i first started getting into Hackintoshes back in the early leopard days, Back then i failed horribly XD (didn't set achi in bios and was doomed from the start) I'm really excited to be here. I now have my hack up and running. Much thanks to this community.
Oh and Hi from Vermont, Usa

You could have written to contact@insanelymac.com
Welcome back, anyway
P.S. I can still reactivate your old account if you wish, you had quite few posts. But I can leave only one.

Oh no, I posted this first of all in the wrong area and created a topic, now thats not a good start is it? Anyway this is what I wrote and MODs feel free to delete the topic I created.


Hi im Chrisie, im 33 from Southampton, computer mad, music mad and love all types of operating systems including the old Amiga OS.

Never really had the chance to explore a Mac enough so now im trying to have a go.

Installed Mac OS on PC before and Laptop but having a few problems with an old KN1 SLI Lite, I refuse to quit lol

At home I run, computers in most rooms linked to one server. Windows, Linux but missing a Mac. Main studio PC uses eyefinity but I dont do gaming. I have an xbox 360

Could give you specs of everything but it would take me too long.

Chrisie x

Hello to All,
I"m Dorin. I live in beautiful Alaska. I am a Mac user since 2005 and recently, my MacBook Pro(early 2008) decided to pack it in. So, I have decided to revive my past failure of installing OS X 86 and see if I can make it fly this time. Things have changed dramatically here since I was perusing last, and I am happy to see that the expertise and tools are WAY OUT THERE!. My kudos to the community and admins behind it. This is truly amazing! Steve Jobs would have approved of it!!! LOL - maybe NOT... but the spirit of innovation is at its highest here, and I am humbled by what I see around.

So, without delay, I just bought an Acer V5-571 model with these specs:

I am hoping to meet with help from the folks that have-been-there and done-that.
Thank you again for having this great community.

Howdy everybody;)

I came here looking for info and kexts for a Latitude e6400, and general info.

I'm still reimaging/updating windows and evaluating my hardware for some possible upgrades, and the TPM/ AMT architecture gives me the vapors;) I bought this machine for parts(bought 3 dead laptops for $75;) and I finally "took ownership" of the TPM a couple days ago, gaff taped over the camera and mic;)

This machine is creepy, but I'll save that story for another installment;)

It'll likely be at least a few more days before I do any osx experiments with this thang, but thanks for the forum, I'll be around pretty often probably(might be a little slow on replies if I get any today, have an array of other projects cooking...so please don't bother I just wanted to say hi, and I'll try to post some interesting questions when I'm ready to.

Gotta go build a trailer for a big (really huge) dog house I let a friend dump here...was gonna convert it to a chicken coop...just need to wheel it around back right now before code inforcement takes an interest in it;)

Hello to everybody.
My name is Giorgio and I'm italian.
I'm also a total newbie about Apple computer, OSX and so on (except some basic knowledge about iOS).
Following your forum and informations, I'd like to start my experience with an hackintosh. The hardware is already at my home and soon, if work, wife and small daughter (not necessary in this order of importance) will allow me, I will try the ML installation and dual boot procedure (Win7).

I'm sure I'll have a tons of questions, doubt and uncertains. Will retrain myself from bother and posting every few second, choosing instead to read twice and carefully all what I can find in the forum.

Time will come I'll post something, both success or failure, joy and sadness, questions (a lot) and answers (few...).
Forgive me from now all my sure stupid question.

Thank you for your attention.
G.
