Broke it? 10.5.2 and v8 working just dandy here.
I bet the 'recovery DVD' says Kalyway or iAtkos on it. These jokers need to be beaten, bald-facedly selling other people's hard work.

*** first of all, PUI
Only if you either patch the 10.5.2 combo installer or use a script to delete a certain kext as it's installed and loaded by the OS, then patch a script to load dsmos.kext instead of "don't steal Mac OS X.kext" - in ohter words, to the oblivious hackintosh installer, it breaks yoru system and renders it unbootable. With netkas's installer to delete that kext and with the recommended edits to load the right encryption kext (dsmos.kext) it'll load, but the vanilla install certainly breaks the holy **** **** out of a hacked install. Dont' go trying to install it all vanilla, even with the netkas EFI emulator, because I know you're full of **** if you think it's working.

And 10.5.1 didn't have that problem, because it didn't include whatever AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext (I think that was the name) and didn't include Don'tStealMacOSX.kext, so you could just install it vanilla-style straight from Apple if you had used the previous 10.5 hacked DVD's to have EFI.

Despite their insistance to the contrary, I'm pretty sure it's just a USB thumb drive you boot from and it loads Leopard from the retail DVD with whatever hacks are necessary for your hardware.

That's their HCL, which consists of the most popular Hackintosh options already. Depending on the cost, it might be fun to play with.
