    Good to know about the kexts that can sometimes get messed up for network and sound sometimes messing up. Did you find this happened to you with any particular Software Update(s)?

    I guess a good solution for this would be to have those kexts on file on USB or something? Should just be a matter of copy & paste in the kexts directory (hopefully?)

    Thanks!

    Having the kexts on USB would be a great idea, but copy and paste could work you just have to be careful. kextHelper b7 is a very easy tool and I tell you how to use it on the tutorial. As for the specific updates, 10.6.2 has been the only one so far, but I expect it to mess up with 10.6.4 because it is rumored to be a big release.

    Ah, OK thanks
    I would think the video card kext would be the most tricky one to troubleshoot with System Updates, yes? How would you go about fixing the video card .kext if it got overwritten with an update? (If you are seeing a black screen)

    I think I understand how the patching works with Stella's Snow Magic app: It is essentially patching your Snow Leopard Installation on your USB drive with your desired kext files, correct?

    I have an ATI Radeon X1950 Pro video card that I am currently using with my AMD OSX Leopard 10.5 Hackintosh. Do you know if it would be possible to use this video card instead of the BFG GeForce 9800? And if so, could I just copy over my existing OSX 10.5 video card .kext file and inject it into my Snow Leopard .dmg installation? Or is it not quite that simple?

    Thanks!

    Actually, if you are using an nVidia card, no. The updates will always have support for nVidia video cards.

    Pertaining to how Stell's app works, yes, it just puts boot files and the proper kexts in place.

    As for your current video card, it isn't that simple. If you install Stell's pkg on the USB, the computer that is booting from the USB MUST have a dual DVI nVidia geforce video card that is at least 512mb only because that is how the pkg is written. After the install, theoretically you could replace the kexts and swap video cards, but there is no way to be sure of this.

    Interesting.. good to know! Thanks for all of your help cobo. Seriously, it's much appreciated.
    I am trying to find a list of supported video cards & CPU's for Stell's pkg..
    Do you know if I could use *any* nVidia card with Stell's pkg or does it need to be a GeForce 9800 series card?

    How are you finding the speeds on your computer? Would you be nice enough to make a video like this one showing the multi-tasking capabilities?
    YouTube - CORE I7 HACKINTOSH SPEED TEST

    Then I will know for sure if I should build the Core 2 / DDR2 computer, or spend a bit more on the i7 / DDR3 rig. However, it does sound like the Core 2 is the easiest route to go right now with this Gigabyte motherboard thanks to Stell's pkg. Hmmm... decisions...

    Any nVidia video card that is dual DVI and has 512mb of RAM or more will work.

    Actually, I hadn't done any speed tests, but I will now.

    Default Safely update to 10.6.4!

    Good news, I was able to update to Mac OS X 10.6.4 with no need to edit any kexts! Networking, video, and sound are all working. The first boot after the install was a bit slow but the second boot was completely normal. So far I am very happy with this build.

    Here is my Xbench score for my AMD Hackintosh:
    Xbench: Comparison
    It would be interesting to compare it to the Intel Quad Core!

    I tried to make a video of all of my apps loading (to show it's multi-tasking capabilities) but when I load all of them at once it crashes my computer! This could be due to the unstable version of my hacked copy of OSX and the kernel being modified for the AMD chipset..

    Anyways, I am interested in hearing about your speed test results. Thanks for letting us know about 10.6.4!

    Hi,

    I'm thinking of making my first hackintosh and I was wondering if this setup would work? Newegg was out of the Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3P motherboard so I'll get it from somewhere else for $135. That brings my total to $798 + $10 for shipping.. not bad..
