Updated Drivers For what??? I dont want to be tech support for people who dont understand their computers.\
BTW, Psystar didnt fail. They exploited a weakness in Apple's EULA agreement.
Thats what I mean, there are no more Drivers. The bootloader acts as an EFI layer and communicates directly to the Hardware.
I will agree with everyone here that HacPro's are not for everyone, It takes some research and understanding. I was always interested in how Mac OSX works, I build Machnes to Mimic real Macs/
They are not necessarliy that much cheaper. if you go for Cheap it wont run that well...Anybody will tell you that. Thats no longer the reason I run them. Its about Customization, and freedom of GPU's.

My first question would be, why are you looking into the hackintosh route?
If it's just to save money, I think you'll only end up creating more headaches for yourself in the end. Yes, the price difference between Mac and PC is appalling, but I'd say get a night job bar tending for a month, save up an extra $2,000, and get a real Mac Pro.
If it's for other reasons, let us know what they are.
For instance, we've currently got a project that exists in both Final Cut and Premiere. I prefer my PC system, but I need to be able to work in Final Cut. I'd rather not have an entire extra system just to be able to take a look at that Final Cut project, so I started looking into hackintosh.
After speaking to a LOT of people whom I consider experts in the field, I finally ran screaming in the other direction. Hackintosh just seemed like there were far too many pitfalls to consider it a viable option for a Video Editing machine.
If you're just screwing around with Mac on a PC machine, that's one thing, but if you're using it as a serious tool, I'd look for other options.
Yeah this is insanity for a RED system- you're paying 17,500 for the camera body alone and you're looking to save a couple grand getting a Mac with no warranty, no tech support and mountain of potential conflicts and bugs to go with it. Why?
I hate spending time to fix or maintain my PC, once I get more $, I will get an Apple. Thanks guys for the input.
