b4rr3l, your build can stay here only if you remove any reference to tonymac and their tools.


I'm sorry I tough we were all together in this Hackintosh world.

TonyMac86 forum only supports Intel CPU builds , they are very close minded and AMD unfriendly, they will remove any post that has anything to do with Hackintosh and AMD..I wouldn't give them the time of day. If you can make it work, no matter what CPU you use then you deserve the credit for the hard work that is involved, but it is their site and they do have the right to let in or out anyone they choose. I just choose to associate with sites that promote different techniques and ideas...like this one.


Oh and by the way, very nice build. Your presentation is flawless and your choice of components for compatibility is outstanding. I only wish I had the cash laying around that would allow me to build such an exquisite hack. If I could vote you in you would certainly have mine. :king:

thanks guys! I have never used a mac before, it did cost me some time to learn how to do it, and I found lots of great tips here, thanks for everything. That was the first mac I've enjoyed using, in any of my previous attempts I've locked the mac in a 5min session .


components played a big hole in this creation, except for the 5750 that was hard to get fully funcional since there was no id on the 5000 kext and even when adding this to the plist...it wasn't working properly. So I've cleaned bios id, PN, SN, etc and flashed this with a custom edited ATi 1002 5770 bios + EFi mod + lower clocks. now it's rocking in win7 and MacOS natively.

Maybe my eyes are bad, but looks like your running at 4.6Ghz vs 4.2Ghz? Nothing wrong with running faster than quoted though :cowboy:
