These are the specs:

Intel® Core™ i5 2450M Processor

8 GB DDR3 Ram
NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 630M with 2GB DDR3 VRAM

 

Can i put OSX mountain lion on my machine?.. Thanks

If it's an Optimus system, you'll have to disable the nVidia card either from DSDT edits or BIOS settings. Other than that, it should work just fine with MacPro 8,1 smbios.

 

All the best!

SMBios of MacBookPro 8,1 is the system describtion for OSX, which must know the model on it's run.  MBP 8,1 has approximately the hardware specs of your lappy. Have a look in Downloads on Pandora. You are guided with tips during install. For making the installer you should advice the script to temporarily delete all video kexts.

Have fun.

hello

 

first u need to install the mac os x.. the method is what u choose

 

and u must read a lot... u know nothing.. so u must read about u are trying to install

 

mac os x is for mac and developed exclusively for mac

 

hack mac os x is a process.. 99% of reading, googling, persistency and 1% of luck u have compatible hardware..

 

so my advice is to u to read.. it have tons of info in this forum and others about the process..

 

don't expect a install like windows..

 

good hack
