I am newbie to Hackintosh.
I want to set up my 4 year old Dell Vostro 1500 as fully working OS X running latest OS from Apple, which I think is Lion.
(I may chose to reboot it with windows xp / vista - but that's an optional choice).
My end objective is to set this up as iOS development machine - so require all development tools like cocoa - with their latest versions.
I already read http://www.insanelym...showtopic=88345 which is quite a success story, but I am skeptical about its success in my case.
1) It installs 10.5.2 Leopard w/ Vanilla 9.2.0 Kernel - which I think is pretty old - and I will have to go through long path to get to the latest OS + development environment, I think?
2) This post is pretty old. It wasn't possible to follow it through, and I do not know what may have changed between 2008 - 2012.
I also want to know how much purchase I will have to do, in order to go fully legal appstore publishing way.
(I visited apple's own store to buy OS, but it seems to have upgrade things for mac only - while here I am talking about plain installation - right from formatting my vista laptop. I read about iATKOS - but again I am confused where do I begin, which all DVDs (or their images) do I need, and so on.
If anyone could point me to where this sequence is described (with specific OS/software names), would highly appreciate.
I am attaching my laptop's configuration zip + it has broadcom 1395 Wireless + Intel Mobile 965 chipset Graphics card.
P.S. - Having latest OS (Lion) is not crucial as far as it allows me to develop apple iOS apps and upload on appstore.
At the same time, as anyone can understand, if I have 2 options to install Lion vs Leopard (both successful) - I would definitely go for Lion, after considering cost / efforts.
