How to install bootloader themes for your Hackintosh

from: MacBreaker   While the default bootscreen that's installed by Multibeast doesn't look bad, it could definitely be better. Luckily, Chimera (the bootloader that's installed by Easybeast and UserDSDT) has a theming feature built-in, so that you can download custom themes to make your bootscreen just a little more interesting every time you boot up your Hackintosh. Chameleon, the bootloader that Chimera is based off, supports themes as well. Jump ...

Accessing hosts file on Mac OSX

/etc/hosts file on Mac OSX I just put this together to cover a question I was asked recently. Might be useful to someone… Where is the /etc/hosts file in Mac OS X?

Dual OS Vista Ultimate/OS X Leopard

While there are manuals out there on how to dual boot from a single hard drive, it proved easier for me to just have dedicated hard drives for each operating system and switch through the BIOS menu depending on which I preferred using.
