  1. Luckily I don't care about games. I have an xbox 360 for that. Thanks for the post, though. Don't mean to come off as a jerk. I actually already own the video card and the RAM. I made this thread mostly for the CPU, case, DVD drive, hard drive, and motherboard.
  2. After thinking about it, I don't plan on upgrading this PC for a while (I don't mind having outdated hardware, just as long as it can run OS X to its max potential) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16819115017 So I think quad core would be a good investment. What do you guys think? The HCL says it is fully compatible Also, I switched the DVD burner to http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16827151154 How's that?
  3. Does this setup look good? I already have the graphics card and RAM, so I can't change those. The rest shouldn't be a problem, though, correct? Can anyone recommend any different parts that might be better? I want to set up hackintosh with the least "hacking" (patches, etc) possible. Thanks guys!
  4. SATA dvd drive and HD

    I have a Dell OCT103 A02 motherboard. The chipset and southbridge are in my sig. I read a thread where I have to swap something about primary and slave because I have the 'IOATA Controller blocking device bus' or whatever.
  5. SATA dvd drive and HD

    How do I set my dvd drive as primary master and HD as primary slave? I know I'd have to open my PC up but I don't know what to do inside it. Anyone know?
  6. Dell Dimension E521 | Progress

    I decided to try and install a couple different releases, here's what I tried (and failed) Kalyway 10.4.10 (IntelSSE3 + V1.1_AMD&SSE2_Patch+fixes) iATKOS_v1.0ir2.iso (10.5.1) + "r3" ppf patch I also get the "IOATADevice Blocking Bus".
  7. Whenever I install OSX it overwrites my bootloader and I have no way of accessing my XP. Is there a way to install a bootloader? Just a second ago I had to install linux to get GRUB so I could access Windows, and that was a pain.
  8. I doubt anyone will be able to help me, but I updated it anyway.
  9. Dang I get the "SAM MEDIA READ / WRITE failed and continued with Still waiting for root device" Nice tutorial though.
  10. Creating Partition Map error

    Same problem here. I'm getting "still waiting for root device", then when I fix that, the partitioner times out.
  11. 1. Is there a separate program for formatting a partition in HFS+? I have Disk utility, but that makes you erase the whole disk, I want to keep my XP partition. Also whenever I try to partition using Disk utility I get a "timed out" error. 2. How do I put a Extensions.mkext into my ISO? And how do I put kext folder into my ISO? There's probably tutorials but I can't seem to find them, and I'm running late for something, so I have to go. I'm using Kalyway 10.4.10 (IntelSSE3 + V1.1_AMD&SSE2_Patch+fixes) Thanks guys. Can't wait to get OSX running
  12. How can I copy an already setup virtual disk to a partition?
  13. Haha thats sweet. I don't have any sticker paper. I like it as an avatar or sig though!
