no hakintosh

don't need to build a hakintosh. boot-132 is the way. gonna build out my mac box in the next few days.

Boot-132
In mid-2008, a new method has come on the scene known as BOOT-132.[13] This method allows users to conduct the Leopard-based OSX86 installation using a stock, retail purchased copy of Mac OS X Leopard and eradicates the necessity of a hacked installation like JaS or Kalyway (mentioned previously). The Boot-132 boot loader essentially preloads an environment on the system from which Leopard can boot and operate. The boot loader stores the necessary files (kext files) in a .img collection or simply a folder. The luxury of this new installation method includes the ability to boot and install from a retail Leopard DVD and update straight from Apple. It even enables the user to reinstall without having to re-add the same kexts to their installation each time.

The bootloader behaves like the linux kernel: one can use an mboot (a patched syslinux was used for the hack) compatible bootloader which tells boot-dfe about the .img file (the ramdisk or initrd, as it's known by the linux users) and boot-dfe will then use the kexts (or mkext) from it. This new boot-dfe has been tested with the retail Leopard DVD and it can boot, install and run Leopard without having to build a modified DVD.

However, this only works with compatible machines, although more recently, with the release of the Voodoo kernel,[14] AMD users have been able to run Retail. Non-Core users can run Retail by using any compatible kernel. Both methods require the placing of the hacked kernel on the boot-132 disc.

It's still called a hackintosh even with boot-132. You still need to use supported hardware.

Guide for Snow Leopard:

Customized installers (like the one for the MSI Wind) installs a lot easier than boot 132.

If you want the utmost seamlessness and have extra moolah, get the hardware dongle EFi-X ($200-$250):

naysayer... the link you sent is for people who already have osx86 running. no help to me.

customized installers sound to be touchy with upgrades, so you can't do standard os patches like others. it sounds like boot 132 isn't that hard to get running on different hardware, just need to make sure it's compatible with the darwin drivers and kernel it seems.

The couple guides I have seen so far all require a Leopard partition. Just start with boot-132 and Leopard.

I believe there is only one installer for all territories. Did you buy your hardware already?

You can use an AMD upset? You should try getting a mult-chip motherboard. 8-Cores.

AMD might work, but it will require extra work.

another guide from Lifehacker, this one only requires you to prep the thumbdrive on another mac.
