Help with Dual-Boot on homebuild


3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,


I am new to the forum and have scanned few a few posts, so have looked at various things, but as I am new to hackintosh, I need to be sure what i am doing is correct.


Recently sold my MacBook and it was a HUGE regret as I miss Logic...


I currently have the following system:

Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3

AMD FX-8120 @ 3.1GHz

8GB DDR3 RAM - Corsair

AMD Radeon HD 7700


I have a 128GB Solid State that I run Windows 7 from currently.

I want to install another HDD so that I can run a version of OS X (More than likely Snow Leopard as I own this on the MAC Store)


The way I envisage things running is this:

Once I press the POWER Button - If I do nothing, it boots to Windows. If I press F8 on boot-up and load from the 2nd HDD, it runs OS X


As there are a lot of guides on this site, I don't know where to get started basically. I dont know whether my build will fully support Mac OSX, or that it will be able to fully support Propellerheads Reason - and Logic Pro - the two tools I used regularly before moving to Ableton on PC (Which I have now ran out of patience with).


Could somebody please point me in the right direction with the correct guides, and provide me with support through this thread so that my journey into hackintosh is as smooth as it can be?


Much Appreciated,

myhack is a good way to start. But you can't install ML for now. As far as i know classic Lion is the highest Mac OS supporting your AMD CPU with custom kernel. http://www.osx86.net/view/3690-kernel_lion_amd_fx_x86_64.html


I would use chameleon as a boot selection tool instead of bios. Its much quicker. And yes you will be able to run all the software including logic and ableton. 

Just simple find a quide for myhack here, install mac os on the second drive and you are good to go.
