I used to use Snow Leopard on my old Acer Travelmate 2480 laptop, and it was a somewhat simple install. In the end, I think I needed VoodooHDA and PS2 just to have audio and my built-in keyboard and touchpad working
About a year or two later I got a new desktop. It has:
Motherboard: Biostar A880G+
GPU: Sapphire Radeon HD 5570
CPU: AMD Phenom II X3 720 (unlocked to X4 currently)
HDD: Some WD drive in AHCI
I haven't really messed with OS X on AMD before, but I guess from what I heard, I need a custom kernel?
In any case, I want to try to install OS X on this desktop. On my old laptop, I was able to install from a retail disc image with I think FakeSMC.kext and some custom .plist edit or something for my GPU. I'm pretty sure it would take a bit more effort to run OS X on this desktop though. Basically I want to try to install OS X from a retail disc (image on a flash drive probably) with Chameleon as the bootloader, and a few kexts (FakeSMC if it's still needed, probably will need some hardware-specific kexts).
I'll be doing some research on this, but any guidance on this would be nice
