Hey. I want to try to install hackintosh using the snow leopard Retail. Sadly its over 5 gb and i only have 4.7 gb dvds. Iv seen some videos saying how to burn it on a 4.7 gig, but only on a mac. Now im wondering if anyone can show me how to do it, if its even possible. Thanks!

AFAIK you need access to a Mac (or working Hackintosh) to do that.

Have you tried burning the iso file to a 8GB USB stick?

I know theres software that lets you read HSF+ volumes on Windows.

Prehaps theres a way there. Keep in mind that's probably illegal though.


If you do find a way though, I'd reccomend taking out all printer drivers and language support, as that's where a huge bulk of the disk is.

AFAIK that isn't possible. If you know a way to do that (that works) please share.
