Where did you connect your monitor as you install? via DVI or HDMI? Thanks in advance!Thanks for posting this build thread, bitdoctor.
I just built my very first computer (and also Hackintosh) based off your instructions and components. It was very easy even though I knew virtually nothing about putting a computer together. I even bought the wifi card from China and installed it in my build. However I used an i3 processor instead.
One thing I wanted to mention for others who may be attempting this build is that I encountered a problem. After installing OSX 10.8.4 via UniBeast on a USB thumb-drive, the computer would not boot into Mountain Lion on the system hard drive. The machine would hang on the white screen with a grey apple and spinning gear.
I'm a complete novice but I managed to do some research on boot-flags. I booted in verbose mode. In case another novice like me is reading this, you type in -v on the screen where you choose the boot drive (UniBeast USB or Mountain Lion installed hard drive). Verbose mode indicated the system was hanging on bluetooth initiation. I then booted the system in safe mode by typing -x at the same boot prompt and then Mountain Lion booted fine. I then ran MultiBeast with bitdoctor's instructions and everything worked fine except for bluetooth (which I understand is an issue with this build)
Anyhow, just sharing in case someone else might have this problem.
