Hackintosh question  

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I just purchased a retain OSX leopard DVD. I got everything to install but I can't install this kext helper b7. I have done it once on the same PC but re-loaded it fresh. Now when I try to do it, the app says it has installed fine and to reboot. When I try to reboot i get an error saying kext helper b7 has failed to stop and I must force it to close. Any idea what might be going on here? I need to get this up and running for work. I am doing this on a dell optiplex 760 with all standard hardware. Snow Leopard 10.6.8

I have seen many of these ''Hackintosh'' discussions on OCN and this is simply is not acceptable due to the Apple EULA.


Clarification of what Hackintosh is:

Threads pertaining to information regarding how to install OS X on an NON-Apple machine anywhere on the site, specifically in the Mac section, or threads asking for help with your "Hackintosh", whether it be installation help, hardware help, or configuration help, is strictly forbidden anywhere on this site.



The Apple EULA forbids Apple software to be used on any hardware other than Apple Labled hardware.

As Overclock.Net supports Lawful discussions we cannot allow discussions of the Hackintosh sort or any other modifications that violate the EULA of another company.


If such threads are created they will be REMOVED and the offending members dealt with



Thank You.
