What is a Hackintosh?
A Hackintosh is a non-Apple computer that runs Mac OS X.
AMD USERS READ THIS: Though technically permitted, the general consensus on Hackintoshes with AMD CPUs is that they're more trouble than they're worth. We probably won't be able to help with any AMD-related issues.
OS X INSTALLERS NOTE: This sub is dedicated to legally obtained copies of OS X. Please do not ask, or post, about things like iAtkos, Niresh, or any other modified OS X installer that may have malicious code in it!
Check out the brand-new FAQ!
Make sure you post your Hackintosh's specifications when you ask questions.
