    Been thinking about trying to convert my computer into a Hackintosh and was wondering if anyone could give me advice on what I need to buy, download, etc.

    Also, if someone could show me how to get all the specs quickly (I've done it before, just can't remember) of my computer so I can post them and make sure it would work, that would be great.

    Make sure you can find drivers for your hardware. Check forums like InfiniteMac or InsanelyMac.

    I did this once, lucky everything worked straight away,apart from the internet.The best thing is to have access to a other PC/Mac/OS. That is vital,because you will definably need to go back and forth with drivers and research,post on forums like stick_man said,and good luck

    Use a secondary hard drive, if you have one. You will be wiping that mother multiple times.

    I think that InsanelyMac would be the best place for this question.
