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.

RE: It's not 100% stock Os X

Member since:

That's because you've said that you need to reinstall the drivers after each update. I thought that by using boot123 method to install Os X, you store your drivers on a hidden partition, dvd or even usb stick and you don't need to hassle with reinstalling the drivers each time you upgrade Os X.

That's possible too, but I don't like the idea of hidden partitions and other nonsense. I prefer simply keeping a driver package around and re-installing that (2 seconds) every time a 10.5.x update comes along.

Still, this is 100% stock OS X. Adding drivers does NOT make it somehow "not stock".
