Hello everybody...

 

I think about my first hackintosh... I'm a Mac user since ... well.. a looooong time (-:

 

I'm using some things from here to make some PC components to work on my Mac Pro, but I never tried to build a hackintosh.

 

I'm gonna have to deal with this:

for some serious reasons, I'm not to change anything in the original hardware. Is it possible to install Lion or Mountain Lion or Mavericks ? What would be your advices about that ?

 

thanks a lot for your insights and tips.

 

 

 

Edit: I've tried... without success... please read my latest posts... if you feel like giving some help...

quick look at the specs looks like it should work, make sure you have a supported graphics card in there, the nvidia would be good.

 

I have been able to get OS X to run on many HP desktops

thanks a lot for your reply... that's reassuring. even if there's only the HD 4000 or 2500 in it, I've read that it is supported... so I guess I can really think now how to make my very first hackintosh (:

Hi everybody...

 

I've downloaded Pandora and installed, follwing instructions, on an USB key...

 

I've booted on this usb key... got a lot of text scrolling.... and then, it keeps saying for " Still waiting for root device"... what did I forget ? or do wrong ?

 

thanks for help/reply
