I am attempting to build my wife a hackintosh for Christmas. I am having a great deal of trouble finding out what components will work and what ones won't. I am looking to most likely throw an I7 in this computer maybe an I5 and run snow lepord. I am on OSx86 Wiki but their lists are not really updated. Any ideas or links, possibly even something minor spec I can look for on a MOBO that might be a dead giveaway if it would be OSX compatible.

Apple's license agreement for Mac OSX prohibits the installation of Mac OSX on computers that are not Apple branded.

Actually...


BleepingComputer does not condone building or even using a hackintosh, It isn't legal nor is it withing the limits of apples EULA.

Not quite true. Apple's software (specifically, OS X) comes with a license that prohibits the use of the software with non-Apple hardware, as in the case of a Hackintosh. However, it is not illegal to do so anyway. It's merely a violation of the license, which is a contract between the user and Apple. Bleeping Computer's stance is that of someone not party to the contract: we neither condemn nor condone the contract or violations thereof.
