Default Removing OSX from Mini9.. Help needed pls. - 12-26-2009, 01:11 AM

Hi Everyone,

I have recently bought a 'Hackintosh' and would like to install Windows 7 on the unit. My question is whether I need to re-format the drive (16GB SSD) before doing a USB W7 install?

If so does anyone know of a USB utility to remove the MAC OS from the unit or offer any other advise on how to remove MAC OS and install WIN 7??

Kind Regards

When you start the W7 install, select Custom, where it lets you select the partition. Then select Advanced. Delete the existing partitions and then tell W7 to install into the unpartitioned space. There is no need to specifically "remove" OS X - deleting the partitions will do that.
