Eventhough I could get SL working pretty flawlessly on my homebuilt pc, it is a tad too complex for me to get it working reliably on the Dell T5500. And at the end of the day, I need to do some serious work on that machine, and can't afford to not have it work properly.
I got reasonably far, but had issues with the graphics and broadcom adaptor, and als it wouldn't see my internal SD drive and cd-rom.
Too risky to use as a workmachine that way:)
Thanks for your help though, who knows, I might try again in a few months time..

The advantage of myhack is that u can modify the installation according to ur needs. and in my personaly experience, myhack installation boots up much quicker. I used atkos s3, and the installer just freeze for more than 5 mins and then continue to load.
for the sound, just install Voodoohda.
for network, I've uploaded my own patched kext, my network card reads pci14e4,1681.
In /system/library/extension/, there's a kext called ionetworkfamily, right click it in finder and select show content, you will find there's a plugin folder in it, put my patched kext in there and replace the original one, fix permission, reboot and network should be working perfectly if you are using the same broadcom giganet card
yeah I am sure the same netork card is in the T7500 and T5500 the broadcom 5761. I have tried the file you posted and repaired permission and still not network, it is not even identified in, about this mac.
i've uploaded my patched network kext in the previeous reply, check that out. The file is not a zip file, i think the forum just add a zip extension automatically.
memory speed reported in "about this mac" is not going to affect the actual performance, so I never bother to touch that.
for sound ,use voodooHDA
for sd drive, I really dont have any experience.

maybe you can try ioregistryexplorer, search for "ethernet" and have a look at what the hardware id is, maybe yours different from mine.
yeah its the same BCM 5761 I just can't get it to work. The zip you uploaded is a bunch of files. I have tried installing it the way you said and still nothing. is there something else i need to do? is there a way to get the actuall kexts from these files?

vanilla works but only with one processor but legacy kernel works with both processors , vanilla or legacy work very well" the only problem im having is my hard drives read really slow or lag , i have a western digital velociraptor 10k rpm for the OS, and four 1.5 terabyte seagate hard drives .
The mobo has 3 sata connectors labeled sata0,sata1,sata2, and 4 other sata connectors that are labeled hd0,hd1,hd2,hd3 , I think they are sas connectors not sure .
My OS is in sata0 and on sata1 is a 1terabyte hhd and on sata2 my cd dvd drive
and my four 1.5 terabyte hhd in hd0,hd1,hd2,hd3 they work fine but read as external hhd .
Any hard drive in connector sata1 or sata2 , read really slow and lag !
Any solutions for slow and laggy hhd, and any workarounds for the dual processors to work with vanilla ?
[url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] method works with one processor but not two and the "myhack" method works with both processors but only with legacy kernel .
also ive only been able to use 10.6.3 with the legacy kernel when i have both processors and up to 10.6.5 on
one processor with vanilla .
Anything anybody can suggest to have a better working system is very much appreciated ! thank you

I try to install Mac Os X Snow Leopard on my Dell Precision T5500.
My config :
Dell T5500 Precision
Bios : Dell Inc. A09 04/20/2011
Intel Xeon X5690 Westmere-EP Socket 1366
Chipset Northbridge: Intel 5520 / Southbridge: Intel 82801JR (ICH10R)
Mem : 24574 Mo, Type: DDR3, @MHz, 9.0-9-9-24-1T
GPU : AMD FirePro V7900 (ATI FireGL)
HD 1To Samsung
I use MyHack for create a usb installer key of Snow Leopard 10.6.3.
My problem is : I start on the USB drive, it detects myhack. I enter the commands to boot (busratio=26, pciroot=4,maxmem ...) and then lots of commands are displayed and the computer restarts. I suppose it is what you call cpu panic.
I have a few questions :
- What is your BIOS config exactly ? (AHCI ON, ... )
- To install the legacy kernel, i just need to copy and replace mach_kernel file ?
- Any new method for install iOS on this config ?
Thx for your help !
