  1. Hey guys, I'm gonna be converting my win7 rig to osx sl. I had decent results in VMware with 10.6.7. I was just looking for the limitation on amd processors, I know amd support is sparse if at all in some situations. Is there a sticky anywhere that will list what amd CPUs will and won't do under osx? For example, will I be able to run multi cores? Will I get full gpu support (1080p playback) I'm current running a phenom II x3 with the 4th core unlocked on a Asus m4a89gtd pro/usb3 with ati radeon hd 4290 integrated graphics. If anyone might have some advice for these particular components I would greatly appreciate it. Thx for your help!!
  2. Hey guys, Im new to the forum (i enjoyed the little quiz i had to take im studying comp. eng. tech in school, i wish the tests were that easy.) and im new to the world of hackintosh. I've been googling a lot the past few hours and there is an extreme wealth of information out there. However, its seems abit overwhelming at first glance and hard to decide where to even start. After reading and reading and reading, i decided to dive right in. I thought i should prolly start off in vm environment just to see how things go. I got my hands on a pre compiled vmware image of osx 10.6.7. From the comments it seemed to have a pretty high success rate. The image file seem to run fairly smooth, just a minor bumps (usb doesnt work, audio is choppy. Both of which i understand are pretty common when dealing with initial installs. ) anyways, my question is, I'm ready to proceed with a real install but not sure what guide to follow or which method is the best. Could someone point me in the right direction? I'm looking for a current uptodate guide for amd installs. Also what version of osx should i start with? Should i start at ml and work my way back until I get a working setup, or at SL and upgrade? Thx for the help guys i appreciate it!!
