Updating os x 10 4

A mathematical improbability exists to test all combinations of software and hardware compatible with Macs.

Every time there is a major system update, the administrators on tonymacx86 will make a news post on the front page of their website.

As the community learns more about a particular system update, this news post will list all relevant information about the update in a convenient and sequential manner. However, there are always exceptions-- for instance, the OS X 10.8.2 update broke a hardware monitoring kext that caused certain Hackintoshes to become unbootable.

Not everything will be affected-- for instance, you probably won't need to reinstall your bootloader, except for really big updates (such as the jump from Mavericks to Yosemite).

However, you will have to reinstall the following every time you update Mac OS X: And that's all there is to it!

However, this method is generally not recommended, as it doesn't give you a large measure of control over the updating process.

Instead, the preferred method of updating a Hackintosh is to install a "combo update".

While installing Mac OS X on a PC is a tricky process in itself, updating your "Hackintosh" can be another challenge altogether.

Apple rolls out system updates periodically, and if you want your Hackintosh to be running the latest and greatest versions of OS X, you're going to have to deal with these system updates at least a few times each year.

Alternatively, you can find a link to the combo update on tonymacx86-- the news post for each system update includes a download link to the combo update. NOTE: Another advantage of a combo update is that it allows you to skip intermediary updates.
