    Default Hackintosh+ASUS laptop?

    I am thinking about buying an ASUS G51VX-RX05 for college, and for my major (Arch.) I was told that I need to buy a Mac for the autoCAD and other software I will be using. But I like Windows 7. And I want to be able to play games on my laptop. This one has a GTX 260M and an Intel Core 2 Duo P7350. And Vista (which will be corrected right after I open the box, should it pan out).

    My question is this: Will I be able to successfully Hackintosh-ify this machine to do what I need to do for my major? I don't need the webcam to work...because I would rather be in Windows if I have the option.

    Was that serious or did you just say "Yes you can" because it sounded like "Yes we can"?

    yes, it was serious. You only need a good boot file and a neat DSDT file. it will run
    great.
    And, yes, it is a nice vid card. Evenmore, it's the same card as the new mac book.

    Ok, so.

    I bought the G60VX (Core 2 Duo something-or-other 2.13 Ghz and same GTX 260M).

    I have been trying 2 different boot files, neither of which is producing results. Here are the two: iATKOS v7.5129354 and iDeneb v1.4 OSx86. Any ideas? I don't NEED to get it done within the next few weeks, but it would be very helpful to get it done sooner rather than later.

    Also, I've created a 100GB partition in my HDD in HFS+.

    Thanks!

    I gave up on it when I switched majors and had no need for OS X. I still have it sitting, unused, in my desk drawer, though. Oh, and I ended up trying out Win8 DevPrev instead.
