Until September last year I had a laptop and a not so powerful PC running Windows. I wanted to buy a iMac, but I could not afford one. So, I decided to built a Hackintosh ... So far, so good...I began to look for compatible parts; the thing was I had never built a PC and this was a challenge for me. Here, in Romania, we have a very small to non existent Hackintosh community :? so I began to search the Internet and came up with the components listed above.
OK, being my first computer build I was a little nervous. I managed to put it up in around 2 and a half hours
Now for the installation, I made the BIOS specific settings and used Tony's installation method: iBoot+Snow Leopard Retail DVD (Original DVD which I bought from eBay for 30 Pounds).
The installation was unbelievable simple and fun
I installed Lion after a week or so still using Tony's method: UniBeast and the Install Lion app, downloaded from Apple Store.
I have working audio, network, graphics and it boots without any problems Thanks to this site.
