Hello guys. I want to use the OSX86 on my Dell Studio notebook...
So, I wanted to know if my notebook can run the OS.
So, my notebook hardware is:

How hackintosh should I use? All the hardware works fine? How should I install? Any tips for me? =D

Thank you guys, the Insanely Mac Forum Rulez!

I dont want to say anything that's concrete, but you need to try and see if it'll work on iAtkos s3. if not, iAtkos v7 or ideneb v1.4

Okay, but I really want to be sure it will work before trying. Or knowing at least that it might work.

You can install OS X, however VGA card may not work properly (no hardware acceleration as no driver(s) yet exists). Nor WLAN would work (no 100% working driver yet exists). It can be replaced by a compatible one though.
In short it will not be 100% functional notebook.

Read there is no driver currently available for the on-board VGA card (video card). Same with the wireless LAN card. The WLAN card can be replaced with a compatible one. The video card most likely can't be replaced.
