  1. Mac OSX Snow Leopard 10.6.8 HDD

    Hate to double post, but I noticed several issues with my hackintosh 10.6.8 on an Asus G73JH gaming laptop: Everything works pretty well except the following issues. I ran xcode. It was all good up until I quited the Iphone simulator, fixed some codes, and ran iphone Simulator again. The next time I quit iPhone simulator, my hackintosh went to blue screen and automatically rebooted. Next, I finished all necessary coding and left my hackintosh alone for like 15minutes or so. When I came back, everything was normal until like 5min later, that is when the screen turned black but the lights and everything was on. The screen was on as well. I figured the computer had some sort of screensaver. But I can't get out of the black screen. I tried clicking and typing, moving the cursor and nothing works. edit: I tried to go to system preference and disable all sleep feature. Hopefully it works now. I also can't shut down using the regular shut down from the apple dropdown in the top left corner. The OS shuts down okay but the computer itself doesn't and I have to press and hold the power button to shut it down.Thanks for any answer to this issue. PS: I also noticed at one point while working with XCode that the hard drive gave a 1 second short scary beep. Wonder what that was even though it did nothing to the system and only occured once.
  2. Mac OSX Snow Leopard 10.6.8 HDD

    Ok thanks, this means I can finally do some install and try out some programs.
  3. Hello, I got Mac OSX Snow Leopard installed on a second hard drive of my pc. So my first hard drive is a Windows and the Second hard drive is Snow leopard. Both are installed on the pc. I can select which OS to boot on startup by entering bios. In windows, I can't view any OSX hard drive even if it is installed, which I believe is normal. But in Mac OSX, I can view windows hard drive like local disc c and d with all programs stored on windows viewable. Question is, since Snow leopard (secondary hard drive) can readily read my primary hard drive (Windows), is it dangerous if I install programs on my OSX like Xcode? Will they run across to Windows hard drive and make changes in secret during installation or during program use? Thanks
  4. Thanks man, I will try that as soon as I buy Snow Leopard Retail 10.6.3. Wonder is it still on sell though? But I will try and find one.
  5. If any at all cost, I want to do it in such a way that my laptop is untouched. Meaning I only boot into Hackintosh if I have an external USB2.0 plugged in. Otherwise my laptop boots windows 7 like I never did anything with it before.
  6. I don't intend to use any firewire, just a regular external USB 2.0 HDD. My plan is such that my laptop is untouched and starts in Windows 7 like nothing happened. But if I plug my external HDD in, I have the option to boot in Hackintosh using the external HDD that it resides on. But the question is, I am not sure what I need to do differently from the tutorial I mentioned above that would allow me to boot Hackintosh from an external USB2.0 HDD. Apparently SL 10.6.8 Works very well with this Laptop of mine from what a lot of people are saying. Thank you guys, I hope I can get it working like how I intend to. I heard from a lot of people that this forum is very helpful in getting a fully working hackintosh.
  7. Hi guys, I have a Asus G73JH gaming laptop, and from some of the post here, it has been successfully made into a Hackintosh quite a few times. The specs are: i7 720QM with 8GB RAM and ATI Mobility Radeon 5870. Here are links from oldest to newest that I followed: http://www.insanelym...l__+asus +g73jh http://www.insanelym...-install-guide/ My question is, I don't want to wipe Windows 7 clean. My plan is to install Hackintosh on an external hard drive (USB Hard drive of 1TB). This means that if I don't plug in my external USB hard drive, then my laptop boots regularly into Windows 7. But if I plug in my external hard drive and start my laptop, it gives me an option to boot into Hackintosh. I want to know is this possible, (I have heard that it is from some sites), but I also want to know will performance be hindered if not installed on internal hard drive? My second question, some of the older tutorials recommend that I set a maxmem limit to 4096 in Empire EFI if my RAM is above 4GB. Is this still needed?
