Acer Aspire V3 771G 9809

02 January 2013 - 08:00 AM

Hello, I would like some (specific) help and instructions on the proper process / trial and error methods to install any version of OS X on my laptop.

It is an Acer Aspire V3 771G 9809 with

i7 Ivy Bridge 3632QM (HD Graphics 4000)
Nvidia GeForce GT 650M (Optimus driven, not expecting it to work soon or ever)

(If other specs are important, I can post, but if I recall, these are the important things to look at when hackintoshing)

Now, I'm very computer savvy, but I'm simple lacking resources and experience trying this. I'm planning on using a second hard drive to try the installs on (as to not ruin my windows HDD) and playing around some. I was hoping some experts could give me some info on

- What version to install
- How to get that version (vanilla disc, boot disc, etc.)
- Special processes to use
- Anything that could help

I've read in some other threads with similar enough specs that it is doable (mostly) and I'm just wanting some reassurance.

To my knowledge, it seems that I can essentially attempt to install Mountain Lion from scratch from a vanilla install disc, boot into safemode, remove and install some kexts as mention in (http://www.insanelym...-mountain-lion/) and finally, have enough working to show off that my laptop is running OS X without an apple anywhere on the case!

Anyways, thanks for all the help and guidance, sorry if I left out some information.

Recommended Build?

I don't know much about hackintoshing, but I do know my way around computers and windows very well. I'm no n00b, but I would like some help picking a build.

I have a hp pavilion a6110n desktop I would like to put mac on.

It has:
AMD Athlon x2 4400+
nForce 430 chipset (I believe)
nVidia GeForce 8400 GS
Generic Most Everything else

I have tried Leo4All and had problems with "still waiting for root device" and couldn't get any
rd=diskXsX combinations to work.

Any ideas or recommendations?

Help me Choose Distro!

Alright, to start off, I'm fine with any "somewhat" recent OSX build, it doesn't have to be 10.5.

I have a laptop (not a good start :P) that'd I've already tried a few builds on but none of them worked well enough to reach the installer.

The laptop is a HP Pavilion G7 117-3dx with the following specs:

17" inch 1600x900 pixel screen
AMD Phenom X2 Dual Core Processor at 2.6 GHz per core
ATI Raedon HD 4250 Graphics Processor
Synaptics Touchpad (generic)
Sound is some integrated business I think...shouldn't be an issue.

Can anyone reccomend me a build? I know this is by no means an ideal setup (as far as I can tell) but any help is greatly appreciated.

Oh yeah, and my CPU supports SSE2 and SSE3.
