Step 4: Install Win7

Posted 11-06-2010 at 12:41 PM by Banacek
This step turned out to be the easiest, of course, since Windows 7 has no issues installing on my machine. I read the instructions here, but since I already had Snow Leopard installed I didn't want to reinstall it. Here are the modified steps I followed:
  1. Created a new partition for Win7 in Disk Utility, formatted it FAT
  2. Rebooted to the Win7 install cd
  3. Installed Win7 on the new partition
  4. Fully updated Win7 after install
  5. Rebooted with the iBoot cd
  6. Selected the Snow Leopard partition

Step 3: Install OSX

Finally done installing OSX on the Hackintosh. In fact, I'm posting from it now.

Step 2: Preparation

Posted 11-04-2010 at 06:26 PM by Banacek
Ok, so while I'm waiting for the PC parts to get here, I figured I would do all the leg work needed before hand so I can get right into building the machine.

Installation plan:
  1. Read this one last time
  2. Configure BIOS
  3. Boot iBoot
  4. Install OSX
  5. Update to 10.6.4
  6. Run Multibeast with my DSDT file
  7. Once I'm confortable with that running, move on to Win7 install
  8. Read this one more time
  9. Install Win7

Now, the files I got so far are:
  • iBoot
  • Mac OS X Snow Leopard Retail

I hope to get around to writing up my HTPC experience this weekend, but there is about 5% missing from it being totally complete, and it's driving me nuts. I can't wait to be done.
