  1. Hi everyone? Just curious if either of these builds would be good for a fully functioning Hackintosh right off the shelf (or with minimal hassle)? https://www.amazon.com/iBUYPOWER-i7-8700K-Motherboard-Slate-9210/dp/B07BDTTQ1M/ https://www.amazon.com/Alienware-Desktop-i7-8700-GeForce-Windows/dp/B076BHG74V/ These i7 machines are on sale for Prime Day so I was wondering
  2. Thanks for that input, StrangeNoises! Anyone else?
  3. I know this is kind of broad, but if I build a workstation that's well supported on High Sierra now, how likely is it to still work well with the next major OSx release next fall? If you had to guess, what % chance do I have of encountering major issues when trying to update next fall? The kinds of issues that would seriously interfere with my day to day work of photo and video editing? For example, kext/kernel panics (is that even a thing still?) or major pieces of hardware suddenly not being supported, and so on... Has migrating your Hackintosh to the latest release has gotten easier in recent years? So for those of you who have been making builds for a while, is going from Sierra to High Sierra causing you fewer problems than Mavericks --> Yosemite for example or Yosemite --> El Capitan etc? Sorry if this is a bit broad and ignorant, but I've been away from the forums for quite a while and just trying to get a sense of how "stable" and "future-proof" Hackintoshes are these days - compared to Apple's own desktops ... I'm OK not updating incrementally ie v13.1 to v13.2 if I need to, but I'm worried about having to start completely from scratch with each new main version.

    HP Probook as DIY Macbook Pro

    need some help, i'm new to hackintosh and it seems terribly complicated. how do i begin here?
  5. I just bought an HP Probook. Got an amazing deal, which is rare up here in Canada Just curious whether it's possible to put Snow Leopard on it? I have two questions: 1) Will this work? Has anyone already tried it on here perhaps? Can I expect a lot of hassle with driver compatibility? FIY- The full specs are here: http://h10010.www1.hp.com/wwpc/us/en/sm/WF...52-4145545.html (mine is the Intel i3 version) 2) Has installing a dual-boot of Snow Leopard and Windows 7 gotten any easier since the early days of each OS? I remember it was quite an ordeal back then ... Are there good guides out there that might work well for this particular model? I'd like to set it up right rather than finding out I installed the wrong OS first and having to start over. Thanks so much for any help you post. OSx86 is great!

    Asus K52 - Good Hackintosh?

    any comment?
  7. Just curious if this is a good model to purchase as a Hackintosh? I'd love to put SL 10.6 on it - but will its hardware play nice with Mac OS? Asus K52Jr-X4 Full Specs: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/se...AIN#detailspecs

    Gigabyte GA-EX58-DS4

    can you break down exactly how you installed? i have the same motherboard and would love to know - but i'm even more of a n00b.
  9. So there's no way to run both on a single disk when Win7 is installed first? I'd really rather not format and start all over with an SL installation followed by Win7
  10. Already have Win7 RTM installed on my lappy. Can I now put the Snow Leopard 10A432 release on it? Has anyone done this? Would love some help n guidance ... tired of Windows.
  11. Thanks for the solution. Have you tried this? Does it work?
  12. Have you tried this or it's just an educated guess?
  13. Just wondering whether anyone has managed to dual-boot the Windows 7 Release Candidate 1 with Snow Leopard (10a222, 10a314 or 10a335)? Would love to see a guide for that ...
  14. I'm going to finally put OSX on this laptop now that I've updated it to 4GB RAM. Will this system be OK for 10.6 (the releases already out there on the intertubes)? It's got a T2300 CPU - same as the old Mac Mini. So I think it should work OK even in 64-bit, but not sure ... Also, what's the status of the Intel wireless drivers mentioned above? Anyone know whether they're now available for 10.5 or 10.6?
