    Question Some Quick Q's

    Hello Everyone,

    I`m thinking of Hackintoshing my comp. but have a few questions. If you can help it would be greatly appreciated.

    1. I have a nforce mobo, which there are apparently compatibility problems with. Which osx86 distro (iAtakos, iDeneb, iPC, etc.) has the best chance of working with my computer?

    2. Is it possible to (without using a mac) boot the distro`s .iso from my 8GB USB Drive instead of burning it to a DVD, if it is how do you do this? (Would syslinux work)

    3. My computer has two physical Hard Drives (I`ll refer to them as C: and D C: has Windows Vista installed and lots of my files, while D: is practically empty. How can I install OSX on D: and Dual-Boot with out losing anything on my C: drive?

    Thanks in advance,

    1- Whats your mobo? whats the chipset?
    2- I think is possible, google for it, now if you have DVD Drive, just burn the image and avoid lots of problems.
    3- If you install in a different HDD, dont need to mess with dual boots, your BIOS can manage that, it wont touch your Vista
