Mountain Lion - IBM Intellistation Z Pro (6223/6227-ACU) (Mac OS X = L,SL,ML, or Mavericks?)

Question

Hello:

?

I'm trying desperately to get my old IBM server/workstation able to boot OS X within my multi-boot setup.? The chipset is Intel E7545 and it has two dual core Xeons running at 3.4GHz.? There are stories of super hackintoshes being successfully built on similar Xeon systems back on Lion, so it's not that far fetched, and the reported benchmark?results from the successful builds/installs of OS X on these dual XEON servers are outrageous.? So any help I could get on getting started would be greatly appreciated.? My chipset supports amd64/64-BIT OS's but does not have much virtualization support enabled besides the old hyperthreading tech. introduced with the P4's, which I'm pretty sure my two Xeons are based on - So newer releases like 10.8.2-10.8.3 or even mavericks 10.9 might be out of the question as far as support goes, since they're XEONs based on P4's, but obviously the newer the better, and bleeding edge is always my goal; if possible.? The one success story of lightinhopkin or whoever, stated that he was using Lion and didn't have to do much modification to get up and running with his dual-xeon setup.? But I have an EVGA NVidia GTX 660, which will never work with Lion without a years worth of kext hacks.? Another hiccup is that he had supported hardware, whereas I am building a hackintosh?with an intel based motherboard (E7545 chipset).? So if anyone has an idea of what I can rule out and basically make a suggestion on where to start, I would greatly appreciate the input.? I haven't had much luck fishing in irc for answers and again, all reference material on the intranet goes back to Lion.? Anyways, help me out please!!!? I want Mavericks along with LMDE and winblows 8.1 (amd64) and I'll be all set.?? Linux Mint Debian with the tools from the new Kali release built into MATE menus and compiz effects (just a beautiful death server waiting to go to work).? Yeah, share a dsdt.aml file or tell me how to get Mavericks installer booted with that damn kepler gpu...? Seems like I can't do nothing with all these installer .iso's just refusing to boot; I'm getting depressed and as each day goes bye without hacking in Linux or UNIX, I feel dumber and dumber...

?

peace [mcurran]
