Did somebody successfully install Snow Leopard on a TC4400 ? I would really like to know which version and distribution is recommended for my laptop. Kalyway, iPC, iDeneb, iATKOS, Hazard, Latkos... which one is the best to start with for the above specifications ??? Also, where do you download a distribution ? (If necessary, you can PM me...)

P.-S.: I don't absolutly need that the Wacom Digitizer work because I don't intend to use the laptop as a Tablet PC.

if you want the wacom tablet to work, use the DSDT from http://www.insanelym...howtopic=266378, which correctly detects the serial port. You also need to install tabletenabler.kext into Extra/Extensions, and Tablet Magic (latest is fine). Finally, if not already correct, edit the info.plist in tabletenabler.kext to read WACF004 in the IONameMatch section. Finally, in S/L/E, edit apple16x50serial.kext/contents/plugins/apple16x50ACPI.kext/contents/info.plist to read the same WACF004 string. Dont forget to repair permissions.

Unfortunately for me, bluetooth doesnt work, and neither sleep :(.

Thanks for the tip to get tablet to work (just got my TC4400 T7200@2.00GHz). BTW, I just use the DSDT from your link to detect a built-in serial port so it can be added to the device list in the Network Preferences. After this, you can use the DSDT that was included from the guide used by binjch. This has a size of 63118bytes. Sleep and Bluetooth work right with this version and of course TabletMagic still does as well.
