Hackintosh!!!   Leave a comment

A couple months ago I was introduced to my mother’s new MacBook Pro. I was so impressed with the interface and the aesthetic appeal of the OS that I decided I HAD to have a Mac. I started looking around for used MacBook Pros on craigslist, and lucked out with an old Intel Core Duo 2.0GHz w/2GB RAM and a 320GB HD for 500 bucks.

Since that computer has basically been taken over by my wife for her photoshopping and blogging hobby, I was forced to look at some other options to get my OS X fix. I started investigating what it would take to get a hackintosh setup running on the desktop I’ve been rebuilding. Apparently I didn’t really comprehend the magnitude of the task I was about to undertake… nor did I realize how much fun it would be to hack into a system I have almost zero knowledge about.

This is my first post in a series where I will attempt to share some of the knowledge I have gained while working on this project.  If nothing else, these posts can serve to document my successes and failures (mostly failures) so that I can reproduce the stuff that worked later on.  Hopefully someone else can glean some useful information from these posts and save themselves from serious frustration.
