  1. Kakewalk 4: Makes installing Lion a breeze

    Heh, after I wrote that I decided to try a few things – I do have sound and Ethernet working now, though I used VoodooHDA for sound and so far it's given me one kernel panic on boot. Otherwise seems to be working pretty well.
  2. Kakewalk 4: Makes installing Lion a breeze

    I don't have sound and Ethernet working at the moment, and whenever I attempt to use [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] my computer kernel panics. You experience anything similar?
  3. Kakewalk 4: Makes installing Lion a breeze

    No, I didn't experience any issues such as that. Mine were closer to what The Matrix had.

    Typing this post from Lion now, still a few issues to work out (sound and Ethernet related) but it works!
  5. Kakewalk 4: Makes installing Lion a breeze

    It's closer to four than three gigs, and Snow Leopard is not a requirement for using Kakewalk to install Lion.
  6. Kakewalk 4: Makes installing Lion a breeze

    Well, I never did figure out how to get Lion to download on my hackintosh, but I was able to use my Mac Pro to download it and then go through the install process with Kakewalk. So far everything is looking pretty good – got it installed, but I didn't have Internet access enabled yet so I'm jumping through some other hoops of my own making.
  7. Kakewalk 4: Makes installing Lion a breeze

    I'm not running the GM build of Lion at all if that's what you're meaning – I have no installations of Lion, just one install of 10.6.8, which is formatted as GUID.
  8. Kakewalk 4: Makes installing Lion a breeze

    Did you have a 10.6.8 install previously? I've also got a system based on the EX58-UD5 (and a 4890) but I can't even download 10.7 – I get the error message that it cannot be installed on this computer.
  9. This topic is a year and a half old. Doubt the OP will ever reply again.
  10. Rommel64: there's a reason you haven't gotten it to work – you have to have a hacked kernel to do so. Wait until Apple releases SNB-based Macs of their own – you'll have better luck then.
  11. Sandy Bridge

    People over at TonyMac have already installed OS X on Sandy Bridge systems, but they're using a hacked kernel which is less stable.
  12. About NVIDIA being fully enabled, that's trash, ATI is also easy to use. I would know, having built my hackintosh around an ATI 4890. As far as the RAM goes, you're wrong about that, too – bioinformatics and Photoshop can easily use 24 gigs of RAM, among other things. What do you mean that OS X won't use all the machine's resources? Mine certainly does. That part of your paragraph makes no sense. Before you start spouting nonsense please check your facts.
  13. The 5770 is natively supported by Apple and will be easier to get running, from what I've read, but neither type of card should be a dealbreaker IMO. THe rest of your hardware looks pretty good.
