Will you be running a version of OS X on this system?

Looking good! If you have any more detailed photos that you would share with everyone, we'd all appreciate it! Have you bench-marked the system yet? What are you planning on using it for? How long did it take to do the work? How much did you spend?


Looks great so far - but I think I can speak for everyone when I say, "More!"

So as you can see... the link you have posted was to he who shall not be named. There are many reasons for this... check the replacement link out for more info.


I have OS 10.8.2 running in a VM. I bought 10.6.3 from Apple and then upgraded the VM to 10.6.8 to get me access to the app store to download 10.8.x. There are soooooooo many resources here, most being towards the top of the forum on how to get just about any flavor of OSX to run on just about any hardware config you can throw at it. The best suggestion that I have is for you to search the forums for some help. Then find a sub-forum that gets you most of the way there... then read and read and read. Ask questions, but read first. Remember that the people here are helping because they want to help... not because of any obligation.


Hopefully this'll help you along the way!

Here is mine. Don't hold mine up on a pedestal though, plenty of mistakes made along the way... Look thru the forum for others mods to give you some more ideas.


And not only do I have OSX running, I have it running in a Virtual Machine - just goes to show that it can be done, if you have the time, energy, and resources. I have 10.6.8 and 10.8.2 running in 2 different virtual machines.


I reused none of the actual electrical parts. Others have reused the fans, or modified them in various ways. I replaced them because the old ones draw a lot of power, make a lot of noise, and don't cool as well as cheap 5 dollar fans. you just cant reuse the PSU. I tried and tried, but it just doesn't have the right voltages, amps, and distribution to run an modern ATX motherboard. I did reuse the fan mounts and the PSU case. Cosmetically, the G5 looks the same... I upgraded all the good bits to new stuff though.
