Mac OS X Getting Mac OS X up and running on a computer without an Apple label has always been a bit of a hassle. You needed customised Mac OS X disks, updates would ruin all your hard work, and there was lots of fiddling with EFI and the likes. Ever since the release of boot-132, this is no longer the case. Read on for how setting up a "Hack"intosh really is as easy as 1, 3, 2.

...and spending the dough for the EFI-X unit. If, however, it is not scheduled to arrive for days after my new hardware arrives, I am definitely going to get antsy and give this a shot, Thom.

My new "Mac" will be:

Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3P
Core 2 Quad Q9550 (2.83)
8 GB patriot extreme perf DDR2
Sparkle GeForce 9800GTX+
WD Cav. Black 1TB (x2 - one for Win7 one for OS X)
Pioneer SATA CD/DVD burner (dual layer)

...all held together in a Cooler Master RC-690 (w/ a Cooler Master 700W PS too).

This system should rock with both Windows and OS X. Maybe I'll dedicate a third drive for Linux. ;)
