OK I'm new to the hackintosh scene but been around PC's my entire life. I have an Acer d250 with the dreaded bcm4312 WiFi card in it currently running snow leopard 10.6.5 booting on its own ( no flash drive boot ) with everything working except WiFi. Now I want to make a triple boot system hackintosh,win7 and Ubuntu. Now for the questions. I heard snow leopard is the only one that will boot native with no USB stick is that correct ? I am asking because I saw that my bcm4312 card worked on other distros like mountain lion. I would change os if all my hardware worked. Next my plan of install was Mac os first then win7 then Ubuntu last hoping its grub loader would pick up the rest and boot. Any help would be appreciated.

I was basically just needing to know if snow leporad was the only one that booted straight and if my bcm4312 card worked on any mac distro. didnt mean to upset anyone.

Hello

I heard snow leopard is the only one that will boot native with no USB stick is that correct ?

 

No.... SL has in DVD mode... you can buy a DVD retail in AppStore... But you can use a retail image in usb stick(SL retail+bootloader+kexts)

 

I said to you before: Best method to your notebook is Snow Leoaprd DVD retail+nawcom ModCD
