  1. Can I go OSx86 or not?

    Thanks MaX2 for your reply, that clears a few things up for me, now to get down and dirty and trial it on one of the intel boxes - just for fun
  2. Not sure if anyone else is having the same problems but using Firefox 3.6 on a Win 7 Ultimate PC (64-bit) The post box for when replying or creating a topic there is no cursor and you cannot click in the box above the end of the text entered to fix a spelling mistake. I had to revert to Chrome to get it to work here Cheers
  3. Hi all , new to the forums and very new to OSx86, only learnt about it today. I last used a Mac many years ago when I had a pizza box LCIII running system 7.2, a lot has chnaged since then. I have been a Windows person since then due mainly to cost of hardware over anything else. So I still like the Mac and the way the OS works but if I may can I ask a few very basic questions (please excuse some of the basic questions I am still reading through the forums looking for specifics). 1. Besides the visual side is there any performance benefits to using OSx86 over Windows 7? 2. The PC's we have are 2 x Quad Core Q6600 with MSI Neo2 MB, 2 x 1TB drives, 4GB DDR2 ram (1066) and a Gigabyte GTX260+ GDDR3 896Mb video card, the third is an AMD Phenom II TRI Core 720 on a Asus M4A78T-E AM3 DDR3 MB with 4GB DDR3 ram (1600) with a Gigabyte GTX260+ GDDR3 896Mb video. Would I be able to get OSx86 on these PC's? 3. I have been reading a number of guides on how to set it up, but I'd like to know what are the recommended best ways to go about this please? 4. Some of the applications in use on the Win 7 PC's are Photoshop, Corel Painter, Lightroom and Corel VideostudioX2, will I get a better performance using OSx86 or should I stay with Win 7? Thanks for your help and advice. EDIT: Oops wrong forum - can a mod move it to the Installations forums please

  6. Some newbie Hackintosh Q's.

    I am very new to this too, only introduced to OSx86 in the last hour or so, so I have lots of reading to do to catch up. Can I ask is there a big performance boost compared to say Windows 7? I mean I like the Mac OS but if the benefits are only visual why go OSx86? Also the OSx86 database is that up to date? Will OSx86 also install on AMDx64 systems, I have read it does but would like to get some more information. Having one PC with a AMD Phenom II X3 720 Processor on an ASUS M4A78T-E and two others that are MSI Neo2 with Intel Quad Core Q6600 processors, all with at least 2 hard drives in them, I am wanting to know if I could get OSx86 running on those and what benefits I would get installing OSx86 over leaving Win7 on them? Sorry to hijack the thread but the 'No New Topic' for new people to teh site makes this the only way to ask for assistance while searching for answers at the same time. Cheers
  7. Can I suggest this to still be done, I had the same issue but until I found this thread I was stumped. Cheers
