Hi everyone,
So I had this old PC and I want to convert it into Hackintosh that runs Apple Mac OSX 10.6. I do not own any apple device right now (Macbooks, iMacs, iPods, iPhones, etc..).

These the specifications of the PC is am trying to convert into a Hackintosh;

  • BIOS: Award
  • Operating System: Windows 7 Ultimate
  • Motherboard: Gigabyte G41MT-S2P
  • Operating System type: x64 based
  • CPU: Pentium Dual Core E5700 @ 3GHz, 2 cores, 2 logic processors
  • Memory (RAM): 6.00GB
  • Virtual memory: 12.00GB
  • Optical Drive: TSST Copr CDDVDW SH S203D ATA device
  • GPU: ATI Radeon HD 5450
  • GPU size: 1.00GB
  • Screen resolution: 1366x768
  • Keyboard: Standard PS/2 keyboard
  • Mouse: USB mouse
  • Hard drive #1: Hitachi HDS721050DLE630 ATA device (500GB)
  • Hard drive #2: Samsung HD321HJ ATA device (300GB or something)


As might have realized after reading the above, the PC I am going to upgrade is quite old and has some old parts.

As Hackintosh(es) need specific hardware configurations to run Mac OSX, I am not sure if all my hardware are compatible.

Please let me know;

  • Whether my hardware are compitable,
  • The steps to installing Mac OSX in this specific build (video, links, etc...)
  • Whether Mac OSX will run smoothly without any lag on this configuration (if is it compatible, of course)
  • If I need upgrades, what are the parts I should get?
