    Has anyone gone back to Snow Leopard because of issues with Lion and their Hackintosh? I'm asking this because I'm debating to go back to Snow Leopard because I can't get my sleep to work.

    Why do Non-Gigabyte boards require mods and sound question?

    Why is it that boards from Asus, MSI, ASrock and etc require mods to run OSX and do all of them require mods as they are based on the same chipset? Also the new ivy bridge Z77 chipset boards from Gigabyte use VIA audio. How do you tell the difference when looking at the specs online whether...

    Just wondering if anyone has successfully got their apple boot screen to display properly on a 1080p monitor. I remember reading a while back the it was not supported so the white screen with the apple logo only took up part of the screen.

    Gigabyte or Asus ?

    I know back in 2009 Gigabyte motherboards were the definite choice for building a hackintosh. I'm wondering if that's still the case today in terms of building a system with ease.

Using the display will work on a hackintosh via snow leopard but booting into windows without bootcamp will limit the brightness to 50%. Hopefully someone will be able to take the Windows 7 bootcamp drivers and...
