Hello guys, i am new to MAC & i want mac for iphone app development with atleast Xcode version 3.2.3 & ios SDK 4.0


Here is my PC specification


Intel C2D 4300 @ 1.80GHz (2CPUs)

Intel D945GCL Motherboard

XFX 9500gt 1 GB DDR2 Graphics card


205GB HDD & 160GB HDD (i hv 2 HDD, installed Win XP Pro 32 -bit on 250 GB) Both r SATA HDD

LG DVD Writer (IDE)


I want to install MAC 10.6.2 or newer so that i can install Xcode 3.2.3

I check HCL for 10.6.4 on OSx86 site . My motherboard is supported for this version.

Thanks in advance.

Heres the hard truth:


Hackintoshes are very HARDWARE SPECIFIC.

Before you do anything, check your hardware compatibility here.


I see you're on intel. Good, this will make it much easier to install.

I can only help you up to the installation part, because I have none of your hardware.

This is what worked for me:

Step one: Obtain a copy of Snow Leopard. $30 upgrade CD will do.

Step two: Burn yourself a copy of Empire EFI. ESSENTIAL.

Step three: Boot to Empire EFI and proceed to install snow leopard.

Step Four: install SL.

Step Five: pull up a laptop and begin your search for kexts (mac equiv. of a windows "driver")


WARNING: All of this might not even work/You might have to buy a new MB. But the DVD is absolutely necessary in all hackintoshes.

@FakeSteez :


Thanks for quick reply...


What is this -> Empire EFI. ESSENTIAL.

Why we require this?

Is it for boot for first time & then use OS X DVD for installation like [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]?
