    Are you really comfortable debugging OS problems? Building a Hackintosh is a lot more than simply getting the right components. Do you understand what a .plist or .kext is? You have to have a good amount of experience to deal with all the issues, especially Apple updates, which can easily break a hackintosh. There are other web forums that specialize in this issue, you will have more luck there.

    Take a look at InsanelyMac and TonyMacx86 forums. They specialize in Hackintoshes and will provide the necessary help.
