How do you like them Apples? 16 November 2009

Been toying with running OS X on my clearly non-Mac hardware. OS X 10.5.8 Leopard works great. It’s completely stable and runs really well.

Also bought a copy of OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard and have been trying to get that installed but have been hampered by an install issue.

STOP! Others having this issue need to know that it isn’t necessarily going to dash their hopes of running Snow Leopard on their Hackintosh!

My issue is that during the boot of the DVD, it hangs after a certain part. No panics, or errors. It just stops and sits there. The issue is because I’m using a newer ATI chipset–a chipset that IS supposed to be supported. But if you just need to get it up and running, you can swap in an NVidia card and it should work long enough to get Snow Leopard installed.

So to anyone else having this issue: there is hope! It’s not your disc or necessarily your hardware. Probably just the video card is incompatible.

I’m working on a fix and I’ll post updates about it.

…and coincidentally, I am the man.

So you know what’s worse than being laid-off? Being laid-off and then running out of money. I had to give up all my fun junk that I used my paycheck for like co-location hosting, and GameFly. And to top it all off, I’ve misplaced the backup of my blog I took before pulling it down. Oh well. No better time to start anew.

You heard it here first: I’m back and I’m taking names. I’ve actually been wanting to start my blog back up again for awhile because it gave me a creative outlet that I could use. Twitter (which is fantastic, by the by; gofollowmenowkthxbai) only let’s you use so many characters in a post. If you’ve been reading before the downfall (old-blog-go-boom) you know that I’m a fairly long-winded person. At least in type anyway. (more…)
