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?

Dude, don't ask in the forum. Look your hardware up in the Hardware Compatibility List:

You might have to try other HCL versions, too.

hey thanks for the reply

the wiki was down at the same time for some weird reason when I posted to osnews. looks like my board will work ok so long as I don't use the sata ports. now I just have to wait until My legal copy of Leopard shows up and resist the temptation to go download it off of one of the torrent sites. I own an older Imac G4 700 so even if I'm not successful with getting leopard to run on my hackintosh, I can always use one of the open firmware hacks to fool the leopard installer into letting me install it on my imac
