So I know I don’t have enough nerd friends to genuinely appreciate this post, but after dozens of sleepless nights I have finally managed to get a working Hackintosh system. A hackintosh is basically the attempt at installing Mac OSX on non-Apple hardware, in my case, a Lenovo Thinkpad T420. After thousands writing lines of unix code and kext edits I managed to get the trackpad, keyboard,camera,thinklight,wifi,fullQE/CL resolution, and SLEEP to work flawlessly and fluidly with 10.7. Along with my fully working hackintosh came XCODE as well as the entire iOS SDK. Finally I can stop borrowing my sister’s Macbook to code haha. Now time for Mountain Lion. Hehe.
Here’s my own personal computer. It is a Haswell Core i5-4670K CPU paired with a Gigabyte GA-Z87MX-D3H motherboard. Throw in an NZXT 700W power supply, 8GB of DDR3 RAM running at 1600MHz and a Kingston HyperX 120GB SSD and you got a pretty nice compact setup all housed in a SilverStone PS07 MicroATX case (white of course). And finally, add in the custom liquid cooling loop and you’re ready to go! Oh yeah, this is a Hackintosh by the way. Yes sir it is running Apple’s newest OS X, Mavericks (10.9.1)
