  1. Yeah, I know. A few years back I fought against an ATI x700. But I won. I asked because there are macbooks on sandy bridge using the intel HD. So it is possible it will work on very short period right?
  2. Quartz extreme and Core Image. Don't worry about it, it means you should have a working graphics card, nothing too fancy, unless you are doing video editing on logic. What are the specs on your build?
  3. HP DV6000 F.29 BIOS whitelist patched

    Hi! I have a dv6130ea, will your f.29 work on it? I need to install a osx compatible wireless card.. It has f.2c bios installed, and the latest is f.2E where can I find info on patching that bios? can you do it for me? Thanks.
  4. Hey, after some research i'm inclined to go with a i3 sandy bridge processor... there is just on thing, are the integrated graphics on the sandy bridge processor working?? that would be gold.
  5. Hello, I am starting this thread to discuss some options for bulding a desktop for use in my audio studio. I have already put mac os on an old laptop, and I currently own a macbook pro. Nevertheless I need your help. So, I need a desktop with fully compatible hardware, running an unpatched (or close) snow leopard installation. I plan on spending the smallest amount of money possible (so this can be used by others for building a fully functional hackintosh dirt cheap). I already have some components, I only need to choose a motherboard, processor and ram As I need it for audio processing, I can start with integrated graphics (upgrading it with a proper card later), and I will be using my own usb professional audio interface and midi controllers etc (that has full support for mac os). I plan on building it for 150€ tops! This is the challenge: getting the most processing power and ram for this amount of money. Let the game begin This is the hardware I plan on using (to be updated) - Motherboard - Gigabyte G31M-ES2L 38,90€ - Processor - Intel Pentium E5700 Wolfdale 3.0GHz LGA 775 65W Dual-Core Desktop Processor BX80571E5700 69€ - Ram - VERITECH 2GB DDR2-800 PC2-6400 2X 24€ each (is this any good?) I know this motherboard only supports 4gb ram, and old processors, anyone knows a better model to start? full compatibility and integrated graphics are required.
