Need help with hackintosh on my extra laptop

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I got an OLD eMachines E525 laptop. It, however, can NOT be underestimated. It has handled many OSes on 1 hard drive. It was built for Windows 7 ONLY, But I INSTALLED Windows 8.1 Enterprise + Ubuntu 13.10 and DUAL BOOTED THEM. It has an INTEL CELERON proccessor.

 

Anyways, how do I hackintosh with this? I got a single 8 GB USB Stick. The laptop supports booting from USB's, but not DVDs or CDs. I also got the Mac Snow Leopard 10.6 Retail .iso file, and the Hazard OSX 10.6 .iso, too.

 

I need straightforward instructions, also

 

 

I DO NOT HAVE ANOTHER MAC PC TO USE!!!

Hello and welcome!

 

Maybe this guide will help: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/293168-guide-how-to-make-a-bootable-os-x-109-mavericks-usb-install-drive-on-linux/

or if using a less advanced OS: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/288795-guide-creating-os-x-usb-installer-using-a-windows-pc-only/

 

But OSX on your eMachine won't be any joy - GMA 4500MHD-graphics have never been fully supported, so hardware acceleration (QE/CI) is missing... (If there was ever a solution, I missed it unfortunately)

 

Good luck!

Sorry, but none of those links helped.

 

 

I don't have a LINUX PC, plus I don't have a mavericks installer either.

 

The 2nd one would've done it, if it didn't need 2 USB sticks.

 

 

I'm just getting OSX for virtualbox on the eMachines, unless I get a working guide :D
