    I've never made a Hackintosh before, I'm getting ready to build a new computer and I'm interested in building a machine that can run both Win 7 and MacOS. However, I have some concerns about how doable this is because "hackintosh" sometimes involves mods to the motherboard. Is dual booting between MacOS and Win 7 as easy as it is other OSes (like Win/Linix, different versions of windows, etc)? Will Windows still run stable on the new hackintosh? If it matters or impacts the answer to this question, I plan on using Tonymacx86's CustoMac Pro with the GA-Z77X-UP5-TH motherboard and i7 3770k processor.

    If you use supported motherboards, their are no "mods." Even DSDT's aren't physically changing anything on the motherboard. Their should be basically no problems dual booting, because we are using PC hardware, which is meant to run windows.

    Thank you so much for your response. I sort of thought as much, for the reasons you mentioned but I just wanted to make sure because if it weren't for hackintosh my hardware choices might have been a little different. Anyway, thanks so much.
