Yet Another MSI Wind Hackintosh Tutorial

Just contributing my method. General outline: install OSX on an external drive from a MacBook, then copy the installation to the internal Wind drive.

Requirements:

Instructions:
  1. Boot the MacBook from the Leopard DVD.
  2. Partition the external drive, with a GUID scheme.
  3. Reboot and install the 10.5.7 update (newest 10.5.8 doesn't have good support at time of writing), reboot.
  4. Install CyberGreg's driver pack.
  5. Install Chameleon on the external drive.
  6. Boot the Wind from the external drive.
  7. Use SuperDuper to copy the OSX installation to the interal drive.
  8. Run Chameleon again on the interal drive.
Hurrah!
