Installing Yosemite on an AMD PC

Question

I was wondering if it was possible to get hackintosh on my AMD PC. I currently have Windows 7 on a 2TB hard drive but I was hoping to install another 160gb hard drive and put Yosemite on that. My system specs are:

?

  • AMD Athlon X4 760K Quad Core Processor 3.80 GHz
  • 8.00 GB ram
  • NVidia GeForce GTX 650 2gb
  • Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit
  • TP-Link TL-WN725N 150Mbps Wireless-N Nano USB Adapter
  • 2TB seagate hard drive
  • MSI A78M-E35 Mini-ATX Motherboard
  • Dual monitors, one with VGA and one with HDMI (both connected to GTX 650)

Yosemite just got released today and is free and I can easily get hold of a copy. I have a Mac Mini with Mac OS X Leopard but would prefer not to use it. If I get Yosemite up and running, how would I get drivers for my Wi-Fi dongle and would my graphics card work as this processor does not have integrated graphics. Also, if I had two operating systems on two hard drives, would I have to do the dual booting thing or would I just have to go into the BIOS and change the boot priority.

?

Thanks

Snow Leopard, Lion, Mountain Lion and Mavericks are possible with your hardware, Yosemite ...... no chance of your CPU! there have been only a few experiments performed with Yosemite with FX CPUs and APUs ...... :D

?

we must wait for the xnu-source for yosemite,..Maybe in one or two weeks ??? or when apple will release the source....???? then is still a mystery whether it will be possible to program amd kernel for older CPUs (without SSSE3 instructionen) and FX CPUs and APUs ? it is not easy.

it's almost ready by sometimes in November...for AMDFX and APU's but for now used 10.9.5 and you still do need intgrated gpu to make it work on next OS for AMD GPu's users...I not sure it work for Nvidia still but i believe Nvidia web drivers works but its not fast as Maverick was on certain games when i was testing its kernel and drivers with 770 gpu early in june but now i have r9 280 !!!!

?

so be patience when the source code released by Apple then the magic will appear....Wait for N{censored} Yosemite Released
