Possible to change the hardware that About This Mac reports?

Recommended Posts


As the title states, I want to be able to change the specific model of Apple computer that my hackintosh is reported as. Right now it is reported as an early 2008 Mac Pro which disables specific features such as Airplay mirroring to Apple TV which is only supported in 2011 and newer Macs. Is there a way to change the model? Seems like it would be possible because there's something that is telling OSX that my hackintosh is a 2008 Mac Pro even though it's not even a Mac at all. 


Any help is muchly appreciated.
