Apple And we have another Ask OSNews item! This one has to do with the recent article we ran on how I built my own Macintosh and installed a vanilla, unaltered copy of Mac OS X on it using the boot-132 method. One of our readers asked us: what is the best hardware to build a Mac out of?

I just bought a used retail copy of Leopard off of ebay and I'm interested in trying it with the boot-132 method for installation

proposed config for my "hackintosh"
ECS ELITEGROUP 915P-A2
onboard sound
onboard network
Intel Celeron-D 3.06 GHz CPU
2.5 GB DDR2 Ram
PNY Nvidia Quadro NVS 280 Dual head pci-e video

IDE LITEON DVD-ROM setup as master
IDE Maxtor 160 GB Hard drive setup as slave.
(system only has one ide port, rest of ports are sata)

the video card I have probably won't work, but I can work on getting a better one later. Right now my main concern is if I can get the system up and running first

tried going over to the insanelymac forum to ask this but it's down at the moment with too many database connections error.
