    Default I want to test the compatibility of my hardware but what are the risks ?

    Hello all,

    I'm french and I don't speak English very well. In advance, sorry for my English.

    I want to test my hardware :
    Processor : Intel Core 2 Duo E7400
    Motherboard : Asus P5P43TD
    Chipset : Intel P45/P43
    Graphic card : ATI ASUS EAH4650 series
    Network card : Atheros AR8121/AR8113/AR8114 PCI-E Ethernet Controller

    I want to test an install of hackintosh on this config.

    Currently, I have a dual boot install. With :
    1 - Windows Xp pro
    2 - Windows Xp pro (just for the sims of my wife)

    If the hackintosh doesn't work, I could go back to this dual boot ?

    Because I want to test if my hardware is compatible but I don't want to lose my dual boot.

    What are the risks ?

    Many thanks

    Default

    None, as long as you can boot from USB. For a fresh install, OSX needs no more than 5 Gb, so any external drive or an 8 Gb usb stick will do fine.

    Alot of installation guides will suggest that you install FROM a USB - I'll take that one further and install it TO another USB drive.

    I have OSX on a 16Gb Corsair Voyager as a test / emergency install which I use at work and at home on different hardware configurations.
