How to make a Hackintosh on a pc with an AMD processor. I couldn't find any videos so i decided to make one. I searched a bunch of sites so you no one has to anymore. I do not know how to get working sound so if you find out please let me know. This Video will show you how to install Mac OS X Snow Leopard on a PC with an AMD processor. (Intel users can use this guide too)
System Specs: Dell Inspiron M5030
AMD Athlon II P360 Dual-Core Processor
Atheros AR9285 802.11b/g/n WiFi Adapter
8GB DDR3 Ram
Operating Systems: Windows 7, Ubuntu 11.10, Mac OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.8
I will be showing you the steps in virtualbox because it's faster that way.

Things you will need: http://www.4shared.com/zip/SqsMUPVl/M...
All files in this link, snow leopard retail disk (not included). I also suggest you buy a wireless usb in case your wireless card is different from mine or airport decides not to work: http://www.amazon.com/USB-WiFi-Wirele... it come with a mini dvd and it has three folders each with a mac folder. Go inside each and install the packages then restart and once you log in plug in the wireless usb.
PRESTEP: download the files and save them to a usb drive.
Step 1. Open the folder and burn Empire Efi onto a CD/DVD and restart computer. (make sure to switch boot priority in BIOS at startup)
Step 2: When it finishes loading eject Empire Efi and insert the Snow Leopard Retail Disk. (wait about ten seconds for it to the load then hit f5 and select it)
Step 3: When you get to the language select screen select English then next
Step 4: Go to Utilities at the top of the screen and select Disk Utility
Step 5: Select the hard drive you are using and go to the partition tab.
Step 6: If you want to install Windows afterwards make two partitions, go to options and select GUID Partition Table, name one of the partitions Mac OS X, then hit apply. (This will erase the entire hard drive so back up any important documents that you have in Windows)
Step 7: Close Disk Utility and hit Continue, then hit Agree.
Step 8: Select the partition that you want to install Snow Leopard on, THEN HIT CUSTOMIZE AND UNCHECK LANGUAGE TRANSLATIONS BECAUSE YOU DON'T NEED IT AND IT WILL ADD 4 HOURS TO THE INSTALL TIME!
Step 9: Click Install. The installation process will take between 45 minutes to an hour, maybe a little longer.
Step 10: After the install mine always says "Mac OS X could not be installed" if that happens to you just ignore it and restart.
Step 11: Put Empire Efi back in and once it loads select your Mac OS X partition and hit the down key to select boot verbose.(ALWAYS BOOT VERBOSE!)
Step 12: You should get to the setup screen which is pretty self-explanatory.
Step 13: Once you are logged in plug in your usb drive and copy all the files to your desktop.
Step 14: Run Update Helper and restart after it finishes.
Step 15: Once you're back on run the 10.6.8 combo update.
Step 16: Once it finishes DO NOT RESTART! Minimize the windows and open Kext Wizard
Step 17: Check System/Library/Extensions then hit Execute.
Step 18: Go to the installation tab and drag the four kexts into Kext Wizard, make sure System/Library/Extensions is selected and click Install.
Step 19: Restart the computer
Step 20: Comment or PM any problems or questions
I will make another video when I figure out how to update to Lion.
