So, I've been trying for a majority of the day to get Mountain Lion installed on my computer. Specs are below. My first install went pretty well, although had to be in -x to get it to install, able to boot after install with no problem. I screwed the first install up by picking the wrong things...
Hey guys! So I started looking on eBay for some parts to mess around with. Looks like LGA 1366 Xeon CPU's are dirt cheap! I could get 2 Xeon L5520's for $90. Seeing as these are quad core CPU's, two of them would give me 8 cores. This definitely sounds like a powerhouse to me! Only problem is...

Just curious if anybody has ever made one of these motherboards into a Hackintosh?
I have one at work that is live as a Linux box, but curious if I could boot it up with a live USB thumb drive and test drive it, leaving the Linux...
I have a DELL rack server, currently running Win 2008. My (real) MacPro broke recently and costs too much to fix it as it's a 2006 and I can just buy another one for the fix cost - which I don't want too. Apple 'says' it's the logic board but it still boots into Target Disk Mode and...
