In Topic: What distro should I be using for this?

13 May 2012 - 10:47 AM

Hey, I have a custom computer that I built myself, and was wondering what Hackintosh distro I should be using.

Here are the specs -

CPU - Intel i3 550
GPU - Gigabyte HD 6850
HDD - 1TB Hitachi & 60GB Patriot Pyro SSD

Is it actually possible to turn this into a hackintosh? If not, what would I need to upgrade/change?

First what's your memory/RAM??

Secondly: ur basic OS is?

3rd: People here would recommend you go for the official app downloading from the mac store. I would leave it up to you. I am using the official version and its great.

4th: If you buy the MAc OS X Lion app, I would recommend the tutorials by CPUKID on YouTube. They are great, simple and very easy to follow.

5th: I would also suggest wait for ML as Lion will soon be old in some weeks. WHen ML officially hits the markets, I think the processes will be simplified to install it as opposed to now, where installing ML is complex as compare to Lion (at least for me it is).

So, there you are...as for your specs, it looks decent, but wait for some expert to reply.

In Topic: How can I have PS/2 support? (or maybe ps/2 to usb adapter support)

18 April 2012 - 12:38 PM

I managed to flawlessly install os x 10.8 DP1. Unfortunately, my only choice for keyboard is either a wireless microsoft keyboard elite for bluetooth or a wired old ps/2 one with an available ps/2 to usb adapter. My question is: how to get though the initial setup (post-install) and get myself some proper ps/2 kexts or even at least to find wireless keyboard kexts?

Thanks for your help in advance.

Honestly, your post is a little confusing.

But try this:

boot to ur system with -s

type "/sbin/mount -uw /" [enter]
sudo pico /System/Library/CoreServices/Setup\ Assistant.app/Contents/Info.plist
scroll down until u find
delete these two sections with backspace and press ctrl+O [enter] ctrl+x [enter]

shutdown -r now [enter]

Yea, am going to follow the Mountain Lion forum closely. I am not much into music, but yes I have a cousin who has learned it more or less in the way you described it. But I definitely owe you one Gringo. Thanks a megaton!

Next up: Mountain Lion!

It was an old post I guess. BUt now I can very much run OS X. Strangely it is showing me a combo update or something. I guess to version 1.7.2 or 3 I don't know. I am not going to do it for a while. Will wait for Mountain Lion and then begin work towards it after the early/first reviews start coming in.

But I owe you a big one Gringo Vermelho. You have been very patient, helpful and very very kind. Not once have you spoken rudely to a complete n00b like me. If you ever plan to come to India, a chilled beer awaits you here. :)

Big Big thanks to you and all who held my hand through this. :trumpet: :thumbsup_anim:
