I am wondering if this will run any version of OS X preferably leopard or later but tiger would be fine also.

System Specs.

CPU - AMD C-50 dual core 1.0ghz

RAM 2.00GB DDR3 @ 538MHZ ( -7-7-7-20)

MOBO - Hewlett-Packard 3577 (socket FT1)

Graphics AMD Radeon HD 6310

Audio - Realtek High Def Audio

HDD - 250GB Hitachi HTS543225A7A384 SATA Disk Device

If you need any other info let me know.

Any help is greatly appreciated thank you.

I also have this laptop and from my experience it cannot run any sort of OS X I either get a kernel panic or it just doesn't boot at all.

Hi, 

 

Replying to an old topic. Just managed to install Mountain Lion on it. 

Still have a lot to do, because for now it's just bootable. Will report back when i have ethernet, audio, video, etc working.

I installed OS X on a Compaq CQ58 and I set the legacy mode in the BIOS you could try it too. Then you can boot from USB or DVD.

P.S. I'm Italian
