    how do i go about installing mac osx on my comp(not a apple)...

    My Specs
    Gigabyte GA-MA78-GM
    2 GB DDR2 TRANSCEND RAM
    NVIDIA 9800 GTX 512 MB
    SEAGATE 250 GIG SATA(ONE PARTITION WHICH HAS SE7EN)
    SEAGATE 160 GIG SATA(ONE PARTITION WHICH IS BLANK)
    WINDOWS 7 (ALREADY INSTALLED)
    AMD PHENOM X3 8450+

    i got kalyway ... i tried running it..then i knew i had to use Zephyroth as kalyway was for intel..
    so i downloaded Zephyroth and tried it....it went all the way to the darwin boot ...it started depacking some stuff..and in the very command line part, it said "still waiting for root device"
    and i waited for a very long time..nothing happened...
    help!

    I love infinitemac. Such a nice and helping community. And I'm positive there a guides for this board. Most Gigabyte boards work very well with OS X, and If your going to be on Snow Leopard, theres kernels for you to use also.

    i recommend you get iPC Distro for its awesome hardware compatility
    you will need to use the 9.5 Voodoo kernel and appropriate drivers for everything else that you have

    updates to OSX will be complicated since you're on AMD

    Yeah, Infinitemac is the best Hackintosh site out there.

    But as gunzaiet said, everything on OSX will be slightly more complicated, since you have an AMD processor. At least with Intel you have some basic support (or full support, depending on the chip).

    TIP: don't go to insanelymac... the support blows.
