Ive been wanting to use Mac for a long time, and most of my hardware is supported, heres my pc specs
AMD Phenom II 955 Black edition ( very well supported processor )
8GB DDR3 1333Mhz ram
ASUS M4A87TD/USB3 Mainboard
1TB Hard disk
HIS Radeon HD 7770 1Ghz edition
no UEFI/general asus bios they havnt updated since 2011 o.o
Anyway, the biggest issue ive had with mac is my GPU, theres no support for it in 10.8.2, and most images that have inbuilt AMD Support Like Niresh's images are 10.8 or 10.8.2 based, so ive had alot of trouble getting going on my physical pc, in virtualbox its fine with most of my hardware
I found a VMWare pre-done image thats based on 10.8.3 with AMD support - 10.8.3 was the first update to introduce drivers for the 7770
What id like to do, is take that image, and turn it into a physical installer that i can install on a hard disk, but im not sure how, id need a bootloader, i have no idea how to get the AMD settings and kernel and all that stuff
Im not asking to be spoonfed, ive done my share with linux and do it yourself, but for some reason these process's really confuse me, i could really use a lamens guide on getting this process going
Because you have a ML VB and want to update it in linux system, that can be easily done.
First, make a clone of ML VB with a different UUID.
So, get "CloneVDI" window program from VB Forum, install "wine" package in your linux system.
Right click of clonevdi.exe, and choose run with wine.
Choose your ML vdi with the only option of "gereneate UUID".
In VB setting, attach a cloned vdi file, start VB, rename a cloned disk to distinguish them.
Restart with a cloned ML, upgrade it.
Restart with an original ML, copy necessary ketxs and kernel into a cloned ML, repair permission.
Restart with an updated cloned ML. If you have problem, go back to an original Ml, fix it, try again.
Once everything is ok, then make a raw disk for VB, just import only partition that you want to install an osx.
How to do it, read VB users manual.
Then attact it to your VB. Now you have 3 disks in your VB.
Start with an original ML VB, open disk utility, restore an updated ML to a raw disk partition.
Set up your grub option, restart a computer, login into an osx.
If you have problem, restart linux, and fix in VM, then try again.
This way, you do not need any installation using usb.
You can find a solution by back and forth between VB and real physical osx.
