Windows 7: I Need Help With Kexts For A Hackintosh Build

I Need Help With Kexts For A Hackintosh Build

Simply put, I'm planning to build a Hackintosh using my laptop. I've read in other forums that people have successfully ran Mac OS X Lion on the same model. Sadly laptops aren't an ideal candidate for Hackintoshes; however, it can be done. I am having a hard time in the Mac forums as they simply aren't as flourishing as Microsoft forums. I've reached out to other builders but, those posts were either old or the builders built on desktops & not laptops. I've read that people know how to build kexts. If anyone here knows how to do that or can suggest some solid resources, that would be just tremendous.

Thanks for the reply. Never even seen this before. I've been to tonymac, osx86, olirila etc...But, this is new to me. Have you ever attempted a hackintosh build? Do you know where the wifi kexts are located? I gotta try these patching methods ASAP lol. Shame on Apple.
