jas 10.4.8 sse3 intel only dvd booted up and installs fine for me i am curious how others have done this. check your bios and make sure its not set to only raid - prevents xp pro from loading dont know bout osx.
I just got my XPS 410 and am really excited about getting OS X to run on it, Let keep this thread going.
Things I have found:
1. Booting from the internal DVD drive yields root device "error". Once I get that, I move the DVD to my external USB DVD drive and the boot continues (try doing that in windows installer). Then OS X Installer launches, however, it sees no drives! This is with JaS.10.4.8.AMD.Intel.SSE2.SSE3.iso
2. Doing the above, but w/ an iso that is patched w/ http://forum.insanel...showtopic=42317
I get an error right away about how it was unable to load the main menu or something like that. I'm pretty sure i don't have this patched all correctly and am looking for things I missed.
3. When I try to boot in VM, I can't just point the cd-rom to the iso file, I have to burn it to a disk and then point the cd-rom to the physical dvd drive I have in. It boots up completely from there in the VM. I perform the install (with the unpatched JaS.10.4.8.AMD.Intel.SSE2.SSE3 iso), which competes, but upon bootup after installation I receive a kernel panic "unable to find driver for this platform: "ACPI"". I haven't begun digging for this one yet. FYI, I also added a scsi drive to see if it would show up in the installer, it doesn't.
xplizid, I am trying to get the 10.4.8 sse3 intel only iso, but it's slow going and it looks like I may have it done by tomorrow. Did you have to patch it at all or was it no issues from start to finish?
Thanks for the info!
