I had Snow Leopard 10.6 on my dell mini 9 it looks nice just a bit boring when there is nothing decent to run on it.

Just buy a Mac if you want to run OSX. It's fine if you just want to have a play with it but for long term use I see no point in running a hackintosh.

Currently installed on my PC. Just gotta make sure your PC is compatible in terms of the chipset etc. Even runs all the applications as u'd expect.

I'd recommend IDeneb 1.6. Just don't install any of the upgrade's(OS) as it wouldn't boot afterwards.

I would recommend starting on a formatted HD.. boot up into IDeneb, hopefully it will see this HD, then partition that and install. You can then install windows on the other partitions - optional though.

Can be tricky as to what partition is set to active, i use a boot up cd with different utilities on - not sure this is required, but it helped me sort out the booting, as it would just boot straight into mac.

Need to be careful with with various boot menus, especially getting GRUB working with Windows 7's boot menu. When I installed Ubuntu/Win7 on my laptop, I think I installed Ubuntu, then Windows 7, and then booted via the Ubuntu LiveCD to add a Windows entry to GRUB.

Why if you want a mac then you get much more, for a lot less money.


I know nobody (and I work in IT and know a lot of people) who would choose a hackintosh over a real Mac should they actually want to go the Mac route. I've not encountered a single person who has decided to buy a non-Apple machine to run as a Mac over buying an actual Mac.

As I said, Hackintoshes are for the fiddlers and tinkerers, the IT literate who like to play with that sort of thing.

You can switch to AHCI mode via registry with driver being placed in system 32 and bios being set without having to reinstall your operating systems. It's a mess on which most would not want to do.
#25
Handy for SSD which the normal seems to be AHCI mode to get most out of them

windows 7 is easier than xp I would assume (vista) will be just as easy as 7
