I hate to be pessimistic about this, but my experiences were different. I’ve attempted four different Hackintosh builds, and found the community at TonyMacX86 to be useful, but not helpful enough. I hit many stumbling blocks, and even when I tried to be very detailed in my posts, sometimes they’d receive no responses for days, weeks — and sometimes not at all.
I eventually had to give up on my Hackintosh adventures and succumbed to installing Windows.
In principle, there are a lot of advantages to going Hackintosh. In practice, there are a LOT of minefields that you may not make it out of (depending on your experience), even when following Tony’s official build guides.
