    Hey guys, I wanted to dual boot Windows 10 & OS X Yosemite on my desktop PC & I'm completely new to the Hackintosh thing so, plz help me out here.

    I have:-

    Intel DH61WW Motherboard from 2011

    Core i3 2100 @ 3.1 Ghz

    Radeon HD6670

    6 GB RAM


    Where to download an ISO of Yosemite from? I found something called Niresh Hackintosh, are those malware free & safe to use?

    What are the things needed to allow dual booting of Yosemite & Windows?

    Oh, I didn't know about that :eek: sorry if I broke any rules, it wasn't my intention

    I have a Mavericks installation on virtualbox, will it do the job?

    nooo I meant on the tonymac site...They will ban you for such blasphemy.

    It's ok on here..

    About your Mavericks on "virtualbox" I have no idea what that is. Sorry

    If you mean to download Yosemite. Only one way to find out.

    If you do make an Apple account, become John Smith or somebody heyy.

    After doing some research, I found out that the motherboard of my PC has some compatibility issues with sleep mode,network driver & audio driver when Mac OS is installed & there's no fix for it :( guess no Yosemite for me then.

    If your serious about Hackingtosh I would suggest getting Gigabyte board.

    On that tonymac site they have a section about what parts to buy.

    Maybe try the iatkos Mountain Lion image. This would give you a flavour of running Mac OS X.
