Hello, all. My name is Yoojin.

 

I am joining after installing OS X on my Sony Vaio VPC-Z1390X with iAtkos 10.8.2. A quick search of the 'net will reveal that there is little or no documentation about OS X running on this particular model so I would like to post some information about how I got this far in the appropriate sub-forum of InsanelyMac.

 

Would somebody care to direct my next post?

Hi, I'm UrbanBard.

 

I spent some time over at TonyMacx86 and constructed one of their builds.

 

GA-Z77X-UD5H

Intel i7-3770

Intel H4000 graphics

16 Gb memory

SanDisk Extreme 120Gb SSD

Seagate Barracuda 1Tb 7200 rpm HDD

Corsair Enthusiast 650 Watt 80 plus Bronze PS

Corsair Carbide Black 500R Mid tower.

HP Pavillian 27 xi LED- lit Monitor

Logitech Z313 Speaker system

Sony AD-7280S-0B Optical drive

 

It's been a learning experience. It took a week or so before I was satisfied. I was always able to work my way though my problems. Everything works on my system, but my build isn't exotic. It has been an interesting experience. I'm likely to build a budget (Mavericks) system for my sister for Christmas. I think I'll build it the InsanelyMac way, although, that requires more knowledge.

 

The first Mac I used was a new Macintosh Se/30 (at work.)  I used a series of different computers in my later occupation as a facility engineer. My personal Mac's were a Mac II si, a Lime Green iMac (2001) and a 2007 flat screen iMac, until just recently.

 

This is the first time I've tried to build a computer and, for the most part, It went well. That may be a result of formerly being an electronic tech. I gave that up to go into management and to work as a System manager on a Cadam/ Catia system. This means that I mostly have experiance as a Mac user and on other computers by constructing layouts of computer installations. I never was a programmer or one who used terminal very much. Now, I am retired. This computer is vastly more powerful than I need. But, I intend to experiment on how I can use it. There is lots to learn and it seems that this place is more condusive to experimentation than TonyMacx86.  I could follow their methods, but I never learned why I did anything. It could just as well be mumbo-jumbo.

Hello! My name is Bart.

 

I'm not as tech savvy as most of you. So, I'd appreciate it if you'd be patient and keep the jargon at a basic level with me.

 

My goal is to take my old Dell Inspiron 1011 (aka, 10v) from 10.5.8 to 10.6.

 

If someone can guide me as to where I should post a more detailed question regarding this pursuit, I'd appreciate it.

hey guys, I'm Dan and I've been following the community from the sidelines for a line now. Needed a new rig and was torn between spending on an imac or just getting haswell. Thought it would be more fun to try my hand at this instead :)

Hey y'all. New here.… somehow came just very recently to the Hackintosh scene by some whim. Running iAtkos V7 currently on a Compaq CQ57-439WM I got last year with Windows 7, which got Ubuntu put on the day it came home. Somehow Ubuntu is/was becoming very bloated and even with "Lightweight Ubuntu Distributions" like LXLE and its ilk, even LXLE with Linux kernel 3.8 (or whatever it is now) became a very horrible RAM hog… after the system was booted for only an hour. RAM would climb up toward 80% even with just two applications open: mail and web browser, an hour later. (LXLE, an acronym for Lubuntu eXtra Life Extension, has a "system heath meter" which shown you your up time, CPU and RAM usage, among other things.)

So, I started to get interested in running Mac OS X but didn't have any funds to go to the Apple Store in the city next to me (MacArthur Center Mall in Norfolk, VA) and plunk down hard-earned cash for even a decent Mac Mini, so a little bored Googling came into order, and then I got interested in running Mac OS X on non-Apple hardware. So, about a week later, hardly any sleep and living off of microwaved grub, I've gained an experience that my friends and such are amazed at my "intelligence" (lol) about this. But sometimes, you gotta join a forum to ask for help because I know I'm not alone in this either.

But, I'm glad to be a part here. And now I'm learning how to install Lion thanks to a ton of bookmarks and other places on Hackintoshing, including this place. Thanks and I hope I learn a lot here, especially like I did on another forum, which is a totally different subject altogether and I kindly decline not to post what that forum is.

Hello there my name is Christian, I'm from Argentina.

 

I started taking interest in Hackintosh about a month ago to test a couple of tools/IDE (XCode) and the OS itself. My current objective is to learn and do a clean install in a FX AMD Oracle VM , using Linux as the Host OS (Not an easy task I'm told).

 

 

Hope that I can share my results and experiences in this forum.

Hi there, I'm David. I've successfully installed multiple OSx86 systems over the last few years and now I want to learn more about the development (Kexts patching, etc). I eventually want to see if it's possible to put together a cross-platform Darwin OS based on the xnu kernel and patched OS X Kexts.
