Can anyone recommend me a good laptop for Hackintoshing?
I'm looking for at least an i5 and a good screen between 13 and 15 inch. I'm not too bothered about the hard drive and memory as I can upgrade the RAM myself and will be putting in a SSD my self.
I'm looking to pay some where between £500-£600
Sorry to bump this. but i got a question but is it true that if you try updating your hackintosh with mac os x update will it break it?
I Have the same motherboard as you i really want to install os x on my computer can you explain how you did it
If you're using custom kexts it can sometimes break the hackintosh when you update
How well are synaptic touchpads supported? On a hackintosh laptop can you do any of the multitouch commands?
Going to test later tonight if I can get Mountain Lion running on my Sager Np9150. Chose this over a macbook pro for the price per $. Quad i7m, 16gb of ram and a gtx 670m should wreck osx.
I can't find any guides for that laptop, so I'd suggest the UniBeast method. I've had a lot of success with it. Unfortunately, though, you need a working OS X install to do it. You could possibly do this in a virtual machine.
If you're serious about making a hackintosh, I unfortunately have to recommend you get an Intel processor/motherboard. Then, you can use the vanilla (stock) OS X kernel, instead of a patched and modified one.
P8Z68-V LX, i5 2500k, 8GB DDR3 and 1 GTX560 TI on 10.7.4 running completely flawlessly, I love it. If anyone is on similar specs and wants to know how I got everything working then let me know.
Sorry for the bump. But I just installed 10.7.2 on my notebook. Everything is working fine, except the graphics saying I have an "Unknown nVidia card". I'm using an NVEnabler kext, which has a string called "model", but it doesn't work when I inject the name of the card. I've also tried to use the Chameleon graphics enabler, which worked fine, except for the fact that it doesn't support the notebook's native resolution.
Would it be a good idea to try and set up dual-boot with Win7 and OSX?
This would be on an Asus laptop with an intel/nvidia setup.
I have the feeling this question should be more "How bad of an idea is this?"
i7-3610QM (3rd gen i7)
GeForce GTX 670M
12GB DDR3 1600
And the motherboard, according to CPU-Z... (Not quite sure what to make of it):
This is probably a dumb question, but... Would I have to worry about OSX not recognizing how my cooling system works and not making my fans run?
Oh shit, didn't notice the last post was 3 weeks late. My bad for re-bumping an old thread.
I can't watch youtube on iATKOS S3 V2. There's no video + the audio stutters a lot.
Any idea's what's causing this?
Seems to just be on chrome.
My workstation PC is:
12 GB Ram
60GB Sata SSD
Antec 550 watt PSU
Would I be able to run hackintosh on that without driver issues?
Not sure how well supported the quadro gpus are but the rest should be ok
I think they sell Mac Pros with the option of Quadro GPUs, it may be compatible.
Speaking of compatibility, do you think I could get a Hackintosh running on a FX Bulldozer AMD CPU?
It might be possible but you would have to patch the kernel. If you have the option of choosing between an intel processor, it would be highly recommended to use an intel one
