    Default Hardware-Check plz

    Hey!

    First, excuse my bad english

    I bought a Mac Book Pro a few Months ago, and since that my PC isnīt in use, and i dream of a Mac Pro...

    I would change the necessary components, to run Hackintosh on my PC

    Here my Hardware-Configuration:

    CPU: Intel Quad Core Q6600

    Mainboard: MSI P35 Neo2-FIR

    RAM: 2x 2GB GEIL Dragon Serie DDR2-800 (GB24GB6400C4DC)

    GPU: MSI Geforce 8800GT (512MB VRAM)

    Soundcard: Creative X-FI

    First Question:
    Which hardware components must be changed or sort out?
    So i read a little bit in your forum and i think the soundcard must be sort out and my mainboard must be changed to a Gigabyte or Asus, anything else?

    Second Question:
    How sure is a complete stable running Leopard after the necessary Hardware Changes? Donīt want to give money away, if it doesnīt run stable.

    Thanks for every answer!

    Gigabyte GA-EP45-DQ6
    Gigabyte GA-EP45-EXTREME

    Thx for the quick reply, but a few more questions coming up:

    Where can i find the Bios Mod? Sorry for the stupid question, perhaps there is an extra website for this, i searched the Forum, but didnt find something similar...

    The X-FI Soundcard can be sort out, the onboard Realtek Chip can used, i guess?

    Is there any Chance to run Bootcamp to use Windows paralell?

    Thanks for every Answer

    No BootCamp on hackintoshes. You can use VMware/Parallels Desktop to run Windows there.

    About Biosmod, use it for you risk: http://osrom.net/biosmod/

    What Realtek chip has onboard?

    Ok, BIOS is flashed with the MOD!

    First Problem with iDeneb, after Installation there is the normal reboot, for a few Seconds i see the APPLE Screen, followed with a reboot and so on and so on

    I hope its ok to post the Installation Stuff here too, or should i create a new Thread?

    New Change: I installed OSX from iDeneb again, now everytime with the DVD inside, the Installation starts from the beginning, without the DVD nothing happens just a black screen...

    EDIT: If i use STARTUP DISK in iDeneb Installation Screen i only can select the DVD and Network Startup!
    I think something going wrong with the Darwin Boot Loader, it doesnt find the Hard Disks, in the Installation
    of iDeneb i find the Leopard-Partition...

    Hi Silencerdeluxe, did you installed Vanilla Kernel? If you did it make sure you enable XD feature in your BIOS
