EFi-X is the first Hackintosh modchip

Posted on Tuesday, September 16 2008 @ 17:43:27 CEST by

Bit Tech reports one of the first "hackintosh" modchips has surfaced. The EFi-X is a little chip that connects to an internal USB header, it will remove the need to mess with your BIOS to get Mac OS X running on a regular PC:
Although methods for creating an OS X PC – affectionately known as a 'hackintosh' – have existed for a while, most require the modification of the BIOS: not a procedure for the faint of heart. The EFi-X chip aims to do away with all that: connect it to a spare USB header on your motherboard and, providing your hardware is compatible, start installing MacOS X.

Reports as to the efficacy of the device are mixed, with some users claiming success on allegedly unsupported hardware while others struggle to get the chip operating correctly on seemingly fully compatible systems. One thing is certain – with the providers of commercial 'hackintosh' systems firmly in Apple's sights, it's unlikely that the company behind EFi-X is going to fly under Apple's radar for long.
