Is retail possible on: Sony Vaio VPCEB32FM.

26 June 2011 - 01:31 AM


Its been a long time since i've explored Mac on my computers, however I wanted to hopefully install a working version of OSx onto my current pc, because i wanted to learn and hopefully start working on possible applications etc. for the iphone, but a mac isn't in my budget for atleast another year. I'm not at all completely fluent in the language yet but do have common understanding of macs, the software etc, so i'm not a complete newby or n00b, and have managed to install Os X on several machines in the past.

My issue is i cant seem to install a pre-patched build of OSX fully working on this machine, I've tried multiple distro's, and very few seem to even load regardless of what I do. The only workable one i've found is Kalyway 10.5.2, but this is not even fully working, no wifi, no ethernet, no sound.

Simply i was wondering if theres any hope of a retail solution, or does anyone have any recommendations? I basically wanted to learn more towards the coding/building side of IOS and also OSX, but am at a loss without a working machine.

Hardware Specs:
Intel® Pentium® P6100 (Dual Core) 3MB 2.00GHz
HD: 320GB Hitachi, @5400RPM ATA Stock, Using 80GB Hitachi @5400rpm for install purposes
Sound:Realtek ALC269
Graphics:Intel® HD Graphics not sure on the specifics other than its an Intel based chipset
Networking: Again not 100% sure, B/G/N wireless nic, not sure on the specifics of the Ethernet or Wireless card
Optical Drive:cd/dvd/bluray
Ram:4gb at 400mhz

I have tried searching on google etc. without luck, as well as this forum, and others but with little definite answers, it appears similar Vaio's are able to run retal however. Any help, either positive or negative replies are appreciated.
