Well, try this for a change.You can download it from www.auslogics.com.
It gives you a better view of what is happening while it's running. And it seems to do a decent job. Finally, the best thing is, its absolutely FREE!

Here are the things you need to do:
- Get a copy of OSX from you favorite torrent site.
e.g. osx86 Leopard flat image (install mac os x 10 5 from windows)
- Extract leopard-x86-flat-img.
- Free up a harddisk. You will need an empty disk, not just a partition. Using Windows Disk Manager, remove any partitions from the disk.
- From a terminal, use "dd --list" to list up drives in your system.
- Now, invoke one of the scripts for the appropriate harddisk you want to write the OSX image to. Warning! If you make a mistake, you will mess up your system and data files. So, be careful.
- Reboot and change BIOS settings to boot from the harddisk with OSX.
- Now boot into your Hackintosh! =)
- If you have an ASUS P5K-E WIFI board, you will need the p5ke_leopard.zip patch to get the LAN and audio working. To get the wireless to work, get the RTL8187L drivers.
- ASUS P5K-E Wifi
- AData 2GB DDR2
- Intel Q6600 2.4GHz Quad Core
- 250 GB Samsung IDE (for OSX boot)
- Gigabyte 640MB 8800GTS

How to hold and read pin numbers
You should hold the jack with the terminals on top and the clip at the back.
Wiring for Straight cable
Use this type of wiring for connecting PC-to-HUB. Use the same wiring for both ends of the cable. (i.e. They should be identical to each other if you place them side by side.) You can choose between A-type or B-type. But make sure to use the same for both ends of your cable.
Wiring for Crossed cable
Use this type if wiring if you want direct PC-to-PC connection or Hub-to-Hub. As with the previous, you choose either the A-type or the B-type. Again, make sure you use the same type for both ends of the cable.
That's all there is to it. Enjoy!
I got the illustrations from here, then modified using them Photoshop to look nicer and be more understandable.

Delete the file called NeroPatentActivation.exe from "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Nero\Shared\NL3".
Open Nero Control Center by clicking:
Start->All Programs->Nero 8->Nero Toolkit->Nero ControlCenter
Click on Updates tab on the left panel. Uncheck the box that says: "Check for updates every: XXX days"
Click on License tab on the left panel. Then click on Add and add your serial numbers.
Your Nero 8 should now work and be activated permanently.
If this works for you, or if I missed a step, please let me know thanks!
