First time homebuilt PC

Recommended Posts




I've been using Mac for a few years now and I use Logic 9 on a daily basis. I was having some problems with my MacBook Pro so I decided to build a PC and switch music software, but while doing some research I realized I may just be able to do a stable Hackintosh on my build. I have only ever done 1 other Hackintosh on my old PC laptop, but I completely forget what distribution I used for that.


I have a legal copy of Snow Leopard and I would like to use that since I am not too happy with Lion, but I am not really sure what bootloader to use or whatever. Here are the specs:



ASUS P8P67 (REV 3.1) LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard



Intel Core i7-2600 Sandy Bridge 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 2000 BX80623I72600



G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL



ASUS EAH5450 SILENT/DI/512MD3(LP) Radeon HD 5450 512MB 64-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Ready Video Card


What boot loader should I use? Are there any tutorials I should follow? What kexts should I use?
