Hello, I was recently burned by the elitist and amazingly unhelpful Tonymac community. Need a community more willing to help a first timer. I'm not stranger to installing osx on mac computers or windows on intel computers.

Been finagling a g4 and a g5 for about 5 years now and I can officially not put off upgrading any longer. I've done tons of hardware repair and replacement but never built a computer from scratch. This was my excuse to get started. I heard about hackentoshing way back in 2008 but it seemed like such an infant concept i put it off. Now it seems like there is more than enough resources for me to finally get started.

Over 6 months i bought bits and pieces of my build for under 400 bucks. Listed below

Gigabyte GA-H61N-USB3 itx (firmware F8)
500 watt coolermaster PCU
4 gigs ram(plan to go 8 gigs when functioning)
EVGA GeForce 210 1024 MB DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 video card
Intel Core i3-2120 Dual-Core Processor 3.3 GHz processor.
Seagate Barracuda 7200 500 GB SATA 6.0 drive
Dual Layer DVD burner with light scribe
Cooler Master Elite 120 Advanced - Mini-ITX Computer Case

Current Status:
10.6.3 fresh install, functional but no network, garbled audio
Cloned to 2nd partition while I figure it out.

Current Goal: 10.6.8 with full functionality. Trying to keep my universal Binary apps from my g5 and g4 system and use the old towers for storage, xgridding, screensharing.

Hi everyone, I'm qwertzuiop258 and I joined the hackintosh community because I'd like to set up OSX Mountain Lion on my Laptop. (x220 , i will edit my forum signature soon.) I have experience with GNU/Linux. I consider myself as an experienced computer user with more knowledge than an average one, but I dont know everything.

I'm in school for a last year, then i'll go to university. I live in Austria (it's the small country to the south of Germany), please forgive me if you don't understand me.

X220 12,5" QM67
i5-2520m Sandybridge mobile
8GB ram Dual-channel 1333mhz
Intel 6205 (this probably won't work) wifi (bgn??)
1366x768 internal display, VGA, DisplayPort
3x USB 2.0
ExpressCard 54
Bluetooth
VGA Webcam (Chicony Electronics)
Ethernet Intel 82579LM Gigabit
card reader SDXC/MMC Ricoh PCie
Audio Speaker: Conexant (??)

My main problem is: during installation keyboard trackpad wtc. works, but not when booting from disk. (this annoys me)

Since I come from GNU/Linux, I have no fear towards shell scripting, terminal commands etc. I prefer those utilities in contrast to GUI Apps.

happy hacking :)

Hey guys,
To be honest, I'm not necessarily new here. I've been a member since 2008, and contributed a few posts and configs back then. I kinda went AWOL, but I would love to come back. Haha.

Please?

Hey guys, I'm new to the Mac scene and REALLY new to this website. A random thought about how nice the old G5 cases looked, and how I would like to build my PC into one, landed me on this forum. You guys have a ton of info and some really nice people.

I want to throw these parts into a G5 chassis;
i5 2500k (going to OC)
ATI 7870
GIGABYTE GA-Z77MX-D3H mobo
H80i CPU cooler
Kingston HyperX XMP Blu Red Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3
Corsair CX600m PSU
2 x Noctura NF-R8 80mm fans

And that's all I can remember right now. Thanks for having a good community, and hopefully I can become an active and contributing member.

Hi everybody. Never would have thought I'd end up in the Hackintosh community. I waited 18 months for new iMacs and now I am being disappointed by the December 2012 ones, so here I am.

Say, is this guide still relevant? I plan to use a Gigabyte Z77 motherboard.
