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.

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.
