My PC is now a Hac Pro

Since I’ve been using my MacBook Pro so much recently I decided to go ahead and turn my custom-built desktop PC into a Hackintosh, in this case Hac Pro. While this took several attempts I finally got it working thanks to all the great work over at InsanelyMac.

I started out following this Asus P6T Deluxe V2 guide, but then ultimately opted for an iBoot + MultiBeast install giving me a more current version of Chameleon, core kexts, useful utilities, and most importantly a working ATI injector for my Radeon 5870. Then I added in by hand some of the kexts for my hardware (ethernet, audio, etc.) from the Asus P6T Deluxe guides.

So far it’s running like a champ; all the Apple software works like I’d expect and anything stressing the hardware (like games) seem at least as fast as they did in its previous life under Windows 7. Good times!
