    This is the final, de facto Hackintosh topic for me. Based on these specs, which build of Hackintosh (preferably Leopard) would be best for me?

    CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad Q660 (x64, 2.4GHz)
    GPU: NVidia GeForce 9500GT (1GB, PCI-E)
    RAM: 4GB Dual Channel DDR2 SDRAM 800MHz
    NETWORK: Linksys RangePlus Wireless G/N Card WMP110 (PCI)
    CD DRIVE: PLDS DVD+ -RW DH-16A6S ATA Device
    HARD DRIVE: WDC WD5000AAKS-75A7B0 ATA Device
    MONITOR: Dell E207WFP (1680x1050)
    MOTHERBOARD ID: 64-0100-009999-00101111-092608-Eaglelake$1ADXP005_BIOS DATE: 09/26/08 15:21:57 VER: 0.0.1
    MOTHERBOARD/COMPUTER NAME: Dell Studio 540


    When I last tried to install Hackintosh, I had numerous errors. When I was able to finally get it to "appear", I couldn't install it on the partition I made, because of a Hard Drive-related error.

    look into the boot-132 bootloader and a retail disk, that way you can update straight from apple and have no worries like that

    I don't have the retail disk. Could I easily just...."get one" from the internet?

    . Actually, I'm not sure if it would work or not.

    You could, but, its illegal and most of them are modified kernals, so updating is tricky. If can find one stock to download, its your call, but the easiest way is to borrow one from a freind and follow what the others suggested.

    Okay. Also, since I can't find any info, what exactly is Boot-132, and how do I use it?

    Boot-132

    Google brings up a bunch of sites with downloads and guides. You just need to find one that works with your hardware. Just stay away from Kernel hacks, its hard to update with them.

    ....And how would I go about finding one that matches my hardware? Do you have a comparison chart or something?
