The soul purpose for this build was video editing and i got what i needed :)

First, i installed Windows 7 64bit from 16gb USB thumb drive onto one of the Seagate hdd's. Made the changes in BIOS before installing: http://tonymacx86.blogspot.com/2010/04/iboot-multibeast-install-mac-os-x-on.html (I had to set frame-buffer to 256+2, if i set it any higher, the installer would hang)

Next, i installed Gigabyte drivers and utilities from their website and updated the bios to F6.

After that, i created a UniBeast thumb drive with App Store Mac OS X Lion (10.7.1) and boot from it. Used Disk Utility to format the SSD drive. Install went flawlessly.

Reboot into Mac OS X. First, i installed CustomBeast (Thank you Tony), did a reboot and downloaded the 10.7.3 Combo Update. Installed it BUT DID NOT RESTART, then i installed CustomBeast again and after that i restarted without any problems. Everything was working at this point and i was happy! :)

Thanks to this community and Tony, my first hackintosh build was hassle free! :headbang:

I will update this post with pictures of my build and overclocking info ;)

As you can see, CPU perfomance is much better under Mac but Memory and GPU are better under Win7. More info coming soon.

Hi! I am working on a very similar build and I was just wondering if you have tried out CS6 and gotten cuda and the mercury playback engine working fully with this video card, in after effects and in premier pro?

Thanks!
