Portable Hackintosh on a USB thumb drive

Posted on Wednesday, January 26th, 2011 in hacks, USB by the machinegeek

People put linux on their flash drives all the time. They also get hackintosh on their hard drives quite often. However, it’d be nice to be able to get the same live experience we get with Linux using OS X. With a distribution of OS X 10.6.2 called iPortable Snow, we can.

Will Fancher at Lifehacker shows how to load hackintosh on a bootable thumb drive. You’ll need a Mac running OS X and a USB thumb drive (minimum 8 GB) and a downloaded free copy of iPortable Snow. The hack produces a version of Mac OS X that will boot on most Intel computers.
