    Default hardware compatability

    Hi guys. I'm new to the forum and new to hackintosh, first off great work to everyone who runs the site, what a resource! Ok, basically Im looking to get a mac os up and running on my laptop, dual booting with vista, will probably use this method here http://www.hackint0sh.org/forum/show...25&postcount=2

    I have a acer travelmate 4072lmi, spec is below the post. From what I have read on the forums so far I gather I may have problems with the wifi (Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG) and gfx (Intel GMA 900). I have found this driver http://code.google.com/p/iwidarwin/ which hopefully should be ok for the wifi but not found anything for the graphics. Could anyone tell me of any other issues I may face with my hardware and if possible recomend me a release to try? And just any advice on this is appreciated...Many Thanks!

    Hi guys. I also am new to the forum and new to Hackintosh. Congratulations on the forum it has come in real handy. I was wondering if you could help me with something. I’m looking to built my Hackintosh dual booting with vista, and I would really appreciate it if you could take a look at what I have come up with and give any suggestions on how to improve it especially on the motherboard so that it supports DDR3 and with the Video card (is 512 mb enough cause I would like it to be working like a clock, and to have it for enough years if that is possible and also to support 100% the Mac Os software)
    Many Thanks!
