Please note: The MD5 checksums are included in the torrent download, in the "MD5 & Readme.rtf" however here they are again:

Some of you may already know of my work, because of my GeForce 8800 and Apple ACPI Easy Installers over at my website, or Install guides etc. here on the forums. If you don't, feel free to scroll down to the bottom of this post to see my Introduction.
Anyway... I’m sure you all want to know what's so different about this install DVD compared to all the others out there... so here's the Screenshots, Features list, and FAQ.
The release date for this DVD will be at the latest 26th October, provided the last beta tester confirms everything is fine on his sytem.
Oh and the DVD ISO zipped weighs in at just 1.3GB, unzipped it's 1.85GB.

Why did you make this?
I felt that none of the recently released Install DVDs provided everything I required from my Hackintosh, they either lacked in features, the standard Mac Programs, or had bugs that made them unusable on my systems. Originally this DVD was not ever intended to be released publicly, but after I mentioned it in my GeForce 8800 Easy Installer topic, people have been asking me to release it since... so, I did a whole lot more work on it, to make it as universal as I possibly could.
Why does your DVD not contain third party programs/customisations?
Put simply, I think there have been too many Install DVDs over the years that contain un-needed applications, some of which are even installed by default, or others have included annoying customisations. My DVD aims simply to get the system up and running, and provides the application set a real Mac would have (Mail, Safari, FrontRow etc.), you then have the choice to add whatever programs you like. What would you rather have? A half working system with a few extra programs - or a fully functional one?
How long did it take you to actually make this?
Well, I started putting it together on the 12th October and the current release (5th Revision) was made on the 18th, I worked on it pretty much solidly over that period, and it probably took a total of about 75 hours to put together, it's been under testing since.
Will this work with AMD?
It is very unlikely, I believe you need different decrypted system files for it to function correctly with an AMD system, these are not included.
Does this support multiple cores, and 64-Bit?
Yes it supports multiple cores. 64 Bit will definitely be supported under processors used on real Mac's. e.g. Core 2 Duo, Xeon etc. it may however not work on some CPUs not supported by Mac, e.g. Pentium D's using 8.10.1/8.10.3 kernels.
Those of you who have no idea who I am, so allow me to introduce myself properly... I'm mac.nub, a 19 Year Old University Student from the UK studying Computing, oh, and I’m also a perfectionist, I’ve never been able to decide if it's a blessing or a curse - I've been interested in OSx86 & Mac in general, for about the last 5 years, but have only really properly used it for about the last two, all started for me all those years ago with the 10.4.1 Deadmoo image, and now we're on 10.4.10, and I’m releasing my own install DVD image.
As you can imagine, and may very well already know, it's been a busy and dramatically changing last few years for the OSx86 scene, with many big names, retiring, leaving due to disputes, or just generally getting tired of all the forum etc. politics and just deciding "why do I even bother?" and simply stopping development... since JaS stopped making install DVDs, there have been various attempts by various people to make Install DVDs that continued to keep up with the quality or JaS' releases, but with each release thus far there have been problems... ranging from things like Rosetta not working, essential applications being removed to "save space", the Network System Preferences pane crashing, these are just a few examples, honestly there are too many to list... so I decided I’d make one myself, that functions exactly the same as it would if it was a real Mac Install DVD, so I bought myself the new iMac 10.4.10 Install DVDs and went from there... after 5 revisions of my Install DVD, I now believe I have a DVD that is ready for public release, i'm just waiting for the last beta tester to confirm it works on his system... provided it does, it will be this revision that is released.
When the DVD is released, you'll notice my perfectionist tendencies in the install DVD, there are no spelling mistakes, no stupid errors, no missing features, no System Profiler crashes, no standard programs removed. Just a plain English, Mac install DVD, that works exactly as it would do if you installed 10.4.10 on a real Mac.
