I am sort of new to Hackintoshing, with only 1 successful build. (Leopard). Not sure how to do all the work with the kexts and kernels. Some help with that would be also GREATLY appreciated.
Alright, I have a PC that has:
AMD Athlon Dual Core 4850e.
3gb of RAM.
AMD Radeon HD 6450
My motherboard is from an HP desktop computer (Model Number: M2N68 - LA)
It's basically an HP Pavilion a6000 in a new case and a new Graphics Card.
I was wondering if I could run atleast Snow Leopard with this hardware. I probably won't have a DVD drive for long (Borrowing a DVD drive from a friend, because mine crapped out on me.) and I figured that a DVD is the easiest way to do it, so please respond ASAP . Any help would be appreciated. I've installed Hazard's Snow Leopard before, I got to the installer fine, But after I restarted my computer..NOTHING worked. I couldn't get to Windows or OS X. I finally had to format my ENTIRE hard drive and reinstall Windows 8. I was able to boot into the installer fine with no boot flags.
I think it MAY have been a problem with the bootloader, because I heard (Don't know if it's true) that Chameleon only worked with Intel CPUs. I also tried ##### to get to my OS X partition, no luck. Empire EFI, still no luck. When I chose to boot up from my harddrive it just went to a black screen with the blinking _ at the top left corner and never went to anything else, not even Windows.
Help would be GREATLY appreciated, because I haven't started working yet so buying an actual Mac is out of the question.
