Hi

 

When installing it gets to the screen and asks me to select where i want it installed and it does not show any.

 

In disk utility it only shows my CD Drive which has the Hazard disk in it.

 

Previously I had windows 7 and it has NOT been formatted. Am I right in believing that its because it is NTFS and needs to be formatted to GUID? if so how do I do so?

 

Thanks a bunch in advance!

 

EDIT: All that I have done is download the hackintosh ISO, burn it onto a disk and put it in my drive.

Am I doing anything wrong? Do I need to do anything before that?

 

system stats:

9500 GT

realtek ac 97 audio

amd athlon 64 processor 3500+

sony dvd rw dw-q28A ATA Device

acpi x86-based pc

You need to put the kexts to either the preboot image, or the installation media. I personally created a chameleon usb stick with a Preboot.dmg (Which contains the kernel and kernel extensions).

 

 

I suggest searching your motherboard/chipset on this forum and getting a installation dvd, which supports your hardware.

 

Another issue could be that your sata devices are not in AHCI mode. You can set it in BIOS.

 

Also, Kexts = Kernel Extensions. Like drivers, On Mac OS X.
