Second hackintosh

Recommended Posts

I got the first hackintosh up and have busy playing in the world of the big iron so very little time for anything else.

So I am now building up a second hackintosh as my first one is now my moms replacement for her imac, poor thing got fried by a leaky roof.


not sure if I need to just link to my build list or copy it directly here. but Ill go out on a limb and link it here.

As before I need to have a monster of a machine, I will be running multiple virtual machines. I rarely have time to play games, graphics are NOT that important (I want it to be able to handle normal stuff but nothing beyond light video editing). This is intended to be a work only machine. I have in my collection right now on the macbook 9 virtual linux's, 2 windows, and a "minix" version of linux. All of which I plan on putting on the new monster. simply put, I dont have a whole lot of time and I need something that "just works" so if something is questionable please lemme know so I can modify it on the list. The original was dubbed "the monstar" by my 2 year old, so I will be dubbing this one "the monstar II". On with the build!
