First time with hackintosh, installing iDeneb and have questions.
I'm thinking about doing the whole hackintosh thing with iDeneb. I can't really find a guide to match my system, though. I have an AMD processor which makes it a little harder to hackintosh I guess, and the only Intel machine I have is a really old Celeron on an 82845G chipset.
Here are the full specs on my AMD machine:
AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ 3GHZ SSE2/SSE3
ECS nForce 9M motherboard
ATI Radeon HD 4870 1GB
SoundBlaster Live! 24-bit internal sound card
I can't find any info on the sound card, mainly. The chipset on the motherboard is the nForce 710a.
I acquired iDeneb and booted from CD with -v. It worked just fine and the only thing I could see close to an error was about not being able to enumerate a USB device (about 100 times this came up). Dunno what that was, because when it got to the "Pick a language" screen my mouse and keyboard worked just fine. I still have some questions. What do I need to do to get my Radeon 4870 to work in OSX? And the sound card? Ethernet? I found .kexts that supposedly work for both of them, but I can't be sure.
I can't install until I get a spare hard drive, which should be tomorrow, but I want to get some of this answered before I start.
