First Hackintosh, need some advices

14 August 2012 - 12:49 AM

Hello InsanelyMac community !

I hope you are fine in the end of Olympics Games :lol: I send this message to ask you some questions in order to make my first Hackintosh as serenely as possible.
I also make 5 hours of research about my configuration but it was too confused :blink:... One said that we need to flash the BIOS because he need more power, another said that we don't really need to flash the BIOS... I don't know how to do, moreover flash my BIOS make me so scared to make something bad so I really need your help !

I own a PC with configuration as :
- Motherboard : ASUS Maximus V Formula/Thunder FX
- Graphics card : ASUS GTX 680 TOP
- Processor : Intel 3770K 3.50 GHz
- Memory: Corsair Vengeance 8GB DDR3
- Hard Disk Drive : Seagate Barracuda 1 TO (6GB/s SATA III)

...Do you think, that configuration is capable to work with Mountain Lion ?
...All parts will be fully recognized ?
...What do I have to do first of all ? Install Snow Leopard, then Lion, then Mountain Lion ?
...Do I have to use iATKOS ? Or the original DVD of SL,Lion and ML ?
...What options do I have to check to get the best recognition ? (Especially in a program if you know what i mean B) )
...Basically I would like to dual-boot with Windows 7 and Mountain Lion. It's possible to do with the following configuration : SSD = Windows 7 ; HDD = Mountain Lion ? If it isn't possible I think I'll put it on an external hard drive.
That's a lot of questions in a row ! I admit it ! :D But I would be very grateful if these questions find their answers

In awaiting a response as soon as possible, thank you infinitely in advance.

Best Regards,
- Shadow Phoenix
