  1. What hardware should I buy?

    I want to build a Hackintosh. If I were to buy a new mobo/CPU/memory/videocard right now, which ones should I get for the best chance of having everything work with the least hassle? There are lots of guides and compatibility lists out there that are very outdated. Even the list on this site at "http://www.insanelymac.com/osx86db/" doesn't list any i3/i5/i7 processors. "http://wiki.osx86project.org/wiki/index.php/HCL_10.6.5" has a long list, but everything appears to require a considerable amount of configuration and I don't know what the best choices would be. My top priority is to build something that works reliably without having to do a lot of configuration. My second priority is performance and my third priority is price, so getting an i7 would be nice as long as it doesn't have a bleeding-edge cost. The biggest thing I don't understand is whether I can pretty much buy any hardware and be able to get it working (with sound, wifi, etc,) without much trouble, or whether the hardware I should use is specifically limited and choosing something that hasn't been verified to work means I probably won't be able to get it working reliably,
  2. Best way to get Snow Leopard on an Eee PC 900?

    Do you have a link to it?
  3. Best way to get Snow Leopard on an Eee PC 900?

    Nope! I gave up. I decided that all the ways to make a Hackintosh were, well, far too hacky, and not reliable for various components on various machines. Instead, I installed Ubuntu Netbook Edition and I'm very happy with it.
  4. What's the best way to get Snow Leopard on an Eee PC 900 these days?
  5. I'd like to install the latest Snow Leopard on an EeePC 900A with an upgraded 32GB SSD. The chart at "http://www.mymacnetbook.com/compatibility-chart/" says all features should work, but I can't find good instructions for how to do the installation - apparently there used to be instructions at "http://eeemac.blogspot.com/2009/03/install-os-x-on-eee-pc-900a-901-1000.html", but now that page is for "invited readers only". Would someone please point me to good instructions on how to get this to work? Preferably using Boot-132 if possible, so that I don't have to hack a copy of Mac OS X? Thank you very much!
