Quick Questions about my first Intel Install

Recommended Posts

On Monday parts for my first Intel based Hackintosh should arrive. Previously I've worked with AMD based machines so I'm looking forward to a bit more compatibility and (hopefully) an install that is a lot easier.


My build is the "Ultra" build listed here: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/287500-hackintosh-builds-for-every-budget/


The only changes are that upgraded the HD to 2 TB and I went with a Geforce 680 instead of the 660.




1) What's the easiest method to install 10.8.3 on this machine? I currently have access to a AMD based Hackintosh running 10.8.3


2) Does anyone have any experience with this particular build? Do you happen to know what boot flags I'll need to use?


3) I want to dual boot Windows 8 and OS X 10.8.3. Which OS should I install first?


Thanks for the help

Follow my retail install guide and use the Asus X79 DMG on my blog.


Read the support page and you will be able to install and be running 100% in 30 mins if you follow the instructions exactly.

One more quick question.  


Do I have to worry about any boot flags like "graphicsenabler=no" etc...


-v npci=0x2000 cpus=1 GraphicsEnabler=No


This is only for your situation and no other.
