So I'm building my first hackintosh and I am a bit confused on how the OS bundles work. Do I have to buy the Mac Box Set in order to have programs like imovie, garageband, etc?

Oh and how can I buy the ML OS? I heard it can be bought, but I can't find it anywhere

You have to have iLife for iMovie, among others (it can be purchased seperately from OS X)

For Mountain Lion, you will have to get your Hack running 10.6.6 or higher and purchase it thru the App Store (google "mountain lion on hackintosh" for installation and compatibility, I recommend using the MultiBeast method, seems to be the most reliable and trusted)

I run 10.6.8 on my Dell 1525, though I can do Lion or ML, the upgrade benefits aren't needed for me as a casual Mac user... Good Luck!
