New to hackintosh...ing... just a couple of questions...
Hi guys as you can probably see, I am VERY new to the forums... and I was wondering if anybody could help me out with a couple of things...
The other week I went on holiday and I had surprisingly an apple TV to play around in my room with I really liked it! If I built an hackint0sh would I be able to run the "media centre" style program on it?
So far this is my set-up:
Processor: Intel Pentium Dual-Core E5200
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-G31M-ES2L
Ram: Kingston 1gb KVR533D2N4/1G X2
I am not sure what graphics card to get could anybody suggest something that is VERY cheap but compatible (as you can probably tell I am building on a budget!)?
am I limited to what OS I can use with this set-up? for example will I be able to run Snow Leopard or will I be limited to a previous version?
Thanks LOADS! (i am kinda baffled here! )
I have yet to get SL to not cause kernel panics. I ended up with Leopard 10.5.8 and EFI instead of other way.
THe logic board will work fine, it is same chipset as I used. Graphics depends on what you need. I got a $10 NVidia 7300LE off eBay and it loaded right up at install. Onboard video and nic did not work at all, which is why I used the card. ATI cards have issue, but NVidia seems to be what Apple uses and are seen as OEM by the installer most of the time.
