    Asus G750: Mac OS X Mountain Lion

    Sorry to get your hopes up, possibly thinking I had a tutorial for you :P

    EDIT:

    We have lift-off!! Thanks to Bozzified, we have OS X Mavericks working on our beast machine, the G750! Check his guide HERE.

    but seriously, who plans on trying this? I know it's possible, every new OS X update becomes more and more compatible with PC hardware due to Macbooks iMacs etc becoming more and more like Intel PC's, not to mention I had Mountain Lion dual booted with Windows 8 pro on my old (and sold) Asus G51Jx-X5.

    I know this machine is meant for gaming but... a lot of people love the OS X platform, and I do just about every form of multimedia so Final Cut Pro would be cool to be able to use :P

    thoughts? (also, what about OS X Mavericks?)

    Hey, i tried to boot into the install of OSX 10.8, using Unibeast and Iboot. It would always kernel panic. I couldn't get it to even boot the installer. Let me know if you make any progress.

    I haven't tried yet, but I should look for some guides for the G75 no? It's closer hardware-wise to this than my old G51 (which I made a guide for: LINK )

    I used the MyHack installer which is what someone told me to use in an older OS X Lion tutorial for the G51

    EDIT: This might be a good start: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/top...on-asus-g75vw/

    Essentially. I, for some weird reason, like Mac OS X ( the newer iterations ) and I like certain programs / apps like FCPX and stuff from the App store. Also, it's fun showing apple fanboys that I can run their sh*t on my superior piece of hardware I paid WAY less for than their laptop lols.

    Not that I prefer OS X over Windows 8... I mean.. games. xD

    For some development work I have OS X installed under VmWare with my Windows 8 as the host. This setup works very well (for me anyway) - the laptop is powerful enough to run OS X in a reasonably fast manner.

    Can you provide any tips to a successful install with OS X via VMware? I know there are "VMware images" pre made on certain torrent websites, but I'd like to take a whack at Mavericks if possible

    EDIT: Yeah not gonna run mavericks yet, but downloading an OS X vmware image.
