Progress:

Finally, the hardware for the “hackintosh” has been ordered mostly from Newegg, though the Graphics Card was purchased on TigerDirect. We are hopeful that all of the items will arrive during this week (2/21-2/25) and we can complete physical construction next weekend, and begin the installation of Mac OSX Snow Leopard this weekend rounding off the driver and complete installation issues the following week. Hopefully we will be able to work out all the kinks with the OS, by the end of next week.
