Hackintosh Tutorial: OS X Lion Installation / Upgrade Hardware Used: Intel 2500k Sandy Bridge Core i5 Gigabyte Z68X UD3H B3 Sapphire Radeon HD 6870 1GB Scythe Shuriken B Cooler Western Digital 1TB HDD 7200 RPM Antec 650W PSU 12GB DDR3 1333 MHZ RAM Generic Bluetooth USB Dongle Logitech MX518 In this tutorial, I explain how to pick the right hardware for a hackintosh system. I then demonstrate how to install OS X: First, I install OS X Snow Leopard, then carefully upgrade and patch it to its latest version. Next, I install OS X Lion and upgrade to its latest version. During the installation I use files from tonymacx86.com including iBoot, MultiBeast, Bridge Helper and DSDT patch. After a successful installation, I make a clone of the hard disk with Carbon Copy Cloner. Then, I attempt to overclock my unlocked CPU in Gigabyte’s BIOS and run Geekbench in OS X to confirm the performance boost. Afterwards, I talk a little about using the integrated Intel HD 3000 graphics. This tutorial is suitable for anyone who is considering building a hackintosh PC, but would like to see the process unfold in a step-by-step fashion. Although this installation guide goes over many details, it does gloss over a few parts. Visit Tonymacx86.com to get more information on building a hackintosh and installing OS X Lion.
