However, since you own a legal copy of the software, there is no copyright legal infringement. Frank Fox of Low End Mac wrote a very good article discussing the legal issues surrounding the Psystar case, as well as the ramifications of individuals building their own Hackintoshes. Thanks for the the kind words Tony.
Since I didn't have any luck with that, I resorted to editing via the command line. Talk about being an OS X noob! Your article is great- well written and thought out. Makes the process easy for that specific hardware. Good work my friend.
On AMD: On Terminal: I think you're making it a bit more difficult than it needs to be. All you need to do is drag the file to desktop, open in TextEdit, and make the corrections there.
How to Dual Boot OS X 10.7 Lion & OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion
Simple- especially for OS X noobs. One more thing- MultiBeast 2. DLooking forward to seeing MultiBeast 2. It works like a charm. Updates work too. The boot loader has the capability to boot other operating systems, so it should be possible to perform a triple boot with it.
Great Hackintosh guide! I would love to use this to dual or triple boot Mac OS X with Ubuntu and Windows 7 but what would the best backup procedure be? It would be a shame to get all three finally working the way you want only to have the huge HD crap out on you. It definitely does take time to get things right, depending on your hardware. It also took me a while to find the easiest solution for the boot loader installation, because I kept getting the instant reboot and couldn't figure out what was causing it.
I finally tracked down the culprit to be the busratio. It takes a lot of research, tinkering, and patience to get everything just right. Once you do get it right, it's very nice to finally have a working Hackintosh. Weekend project is a great way to describe it. For those in the market for a new computer, it's always nice to know what hardware configurations work and what steps are necessary to get it to work. For individuals in that situation, this and similar how-tos can be invaluable. For those that are using different hardware configurations, it could turn out to be a rough ride.
Since then people have put together boot disks that allow you to install from the retail media rather than using a hacked installation disk. However, until recently it required dumping the disk image to a USB drive first. I'd done this with my laptop roughly a year ago using iDeneb release with the Chameleon bootloader, and I've never had access to a Mac. I can't recall ever finding instructions that required a Mac for prep either.
Also to that note, I wanna say there was some sort of patch for AMD support too that was in the list of packages during install. For anyone reading, I've removed Mac since then, it was to experiment with different programming environments since I hadn't paid for it. I am in the process of a new build motherboard died and this article made me catch the hackintosh bug. I haven' t bought any components yet but I am interested in some of the parts you've mentioned in this post, namely the motherboard, cpu, and ram.
I would like to re-use my graphics card EVGA gtx ,and power supply w coolmax. I currently have a 3ghz core2duo, but that core i3 sounds nice because it runs cooler. Do you think that my gpu will fit in that case Its a tight squeeze in my current case?

Is this card even good for hackintoshing? If it's a longer video card, it may not fit. The hard drive bays are located right in front of the PCI-E slots, so there's not a lot of space for long expansion cards. If you've already got that card in another case, you may just want to use your existing case since you know it will fit in there.
Thanks man. You don't even know the half of it. The sad thing is all the hours I wasted before I finally realized how simple the final solution was. I tried multiple combinations of different boot disks, creating my own boot disks, manually trying to install different versions of different kexts, etc. In the end, it turned out that the only reason Multibeast wasn't working was because of the busratio setting, so I went through a lot of pain for nothing.
You can also fix the problem by replacing the system's kernel with the iBoot kernel, but I think simply modifying the com. You mean can you put iBoot on a USB stick? I don't think you can, as far as I know it is specifically designed to boot from a CD. I would recommend going to Wal-Mart and picking up a pak of rewriteable CDs. Core 2 Duo chips are supported so you should be fine with the CPU. I'm not sure about your motherboard and video though.
Search for info about them separately when seeking compatibility info. As far as the video card is concerned, just look for info about the GeForce There do seem to be people out there that have gotten it to work. You do have to be careful when running updates.
I updated mine and got a kernel panic on the subsequent boot. My recommendation for handling updates from Apple would be to set up Time Machine and make a backup right before running the update. That way if the update does render the machine useless you'll have a way to revert to the prior state. Great article, Jorge. I can tell a lot of people have been looking for a detailed walkthrough like this.
1. Ensure Your PC is Compatible
You put in a lot of work on this one, good job! I had tried the 'Hackintosh' thing a few months ago on my AMD machine. It turned out to be pretty raw. Some things worked and some didn't. The forums are nice place to lookup but you need to waste a helluva time on that.

Atleast, thats what my experience was. Unless you have compatible hardware, don't waste time on this. It worked on my friend's pc and it took him about a month or so to get it right. I don't want to discourage anybody but you need either compatible set of hardware or need to spend time on it to make it work.
A very good weekend project if you get all things right. Those who don't want the headache, try EFiX. The sad thing is that it doesn't support AMD yet. I'm not sure, but I wouldn't recommend trying this setup with an existing system as you will need to repartition the drive and effectively wipe out the old system.
If you want OS X to coexist with your current setup, you may wish to purchase a separate hard drive to install it. Can I make a boot USB stick to use for the bootloader? I don't have a blank disc I know, right? Will I be able to get one up and running? Is there anything drastically different or imperative I should know? Searching yielded no results. Sorry, had typoed that comment. Meant to say iBoot will not work with AMD chips. Fixed the comment to reflect that. Been trying to do a whole lot of responding in a short period of time. I made an invalid assumption that AMD will not work.imdrin.cf
How can I boot Mac OS X with Chamaleon bootloader and without the installer DVD?
You should be able to dual boot. If I were to build a multi-boot system, I would install the other operating systems first and then Mac OS X since the boot loader needs to be installed last anyway. I did not try it with VMWare, but I kind of have my doubts. I would search tonymacx86's forum to see if anyone has had any luck using iBoot to install on VMWare. I've used this guide http: Thanks for the tip. I wonder why they bother dumping it to a disk image first rather than just suggesting installation directly from the installation media. I did it with an old GeForce GT and it works great.
Nice tutorial, but I think dual boot is a lot more simple, I can imagine trying this and it going pear shaped half way through: What do you mean by going "pear shaped? Is there an online list of any easy to hack intel-based computers by simply using iboot or some other program and the necessary blank disc, snow leopard dvd, etc.? You may wish to consult your laptop's manual for instructions on getting into the BIOS settings. I would suggest digging in the tonymacx86 and InsanelyMac forums for any tips on your particular system.
