    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.

    I looked at that Wiki countless times, and it does nothing for me. My graphics card doesn't show up, which explains why everything looked stretched-out during the installation process once.

    Also...couldn't you have just looked at the Wiki and gotten the info for me?

    I read everywhere, and I can't find info. For the Retail Disk, I can just use a plain-old Leopard CD/ISO?

    Also, what is Boot-132?

    I would use and iDeneb version 10.5.5 then do their update, their 10.5.6 disk may be to advanced for the hardware. You will need to run in save modes untill you can add the video drivers. PM me if you need the 9500's drivers

    I have the same GPU as you.

    I successfully got xxx OSX 10.5.6 working perfectly.

    Google "xxx osx". First result is what you want.

    iDeneb, 10.5.5, patched with the nvidia drivers. the nvidia drivers are hard to find, but ill gladly PM them to you if you want. Also, at the darwin prompt, type

    Code:
    -v cpus=1
