Default Anybody into hackintoshing?

I've seen several web sites where people are running OS X on a pc. I'm wanting to convert one of my hp dv7 laptops to OS X. I'm not a fan of ms stuff too many errors and vernubilities imo.

No, but I have a couple MACs running on PC OS, bacause the devices they run don't have MAC support. No problems with the dual platform.

See if he will write a tutorial for me to do it on my hp dv-7 envy 7250us? I would really like it if he did.

I've been building my Hackintoshes for years, first with iAtkos, then, Kakewalk and now Multibeast.
My machines are just as fast/stable and smooth running as any Apple branded computer of comparable hardware specs.

On the other hand I also have invested in 2 MacBookPros (2008 and 2013), MacMini Server (2010), XServe (2008] and various IOS devices.


cheers,
Ron
