what about the graphic card? HD7850 is working out-of-the-box? And the internal GPU of i5 3450 is a HD2500, which is not supported too. Will it work anyway?

Support for the HD 7000 series was added with 10.8.3 but you will need to apply a small fix. However you can always boot into safe mode with -x and you will have video output with software rendering.

 

Can't tell you anything about the HD2500.

So i can apply the fix without any videocard working?

I install Mac OSX 10.8.3 using the guide you linked me, then with -x, i boot into OSX and apply the fix. Then everything will work fine? i know it's not this simple, but i just need to know what to do!

I can't tell you for sure but it should work with any Disk Utility version that supports restoring images to USB drives. Just try it.

I also have win7 installed in this harddrive. I will create a new partition for OSX. How do I create a dualboot? Will Chameleon automaticaly recognize the win7 partition?

I cant use Pandora's Box because im on Leopard. Same thing for Chameleon Wizard. They both say: "you cannot use this version of the application ******* with this version of Mac OS X"
