I recently purchased this laptop from Amazon, and I've not been an active member of the OSx86 Community for a few years due to incompatible laptop. I was just wondering if this particular laptop is capable of running Lion/Mountain Lion? Ill prove as much information as I can:


Brand: Sony Vaio SVE1511L1EW.CEK

Processor Type: Intel Core i5

Processor Speed: 2.5 GHz

Memory: 4 GB

Computer Memory Type: DDR3 SDRAM

Graphics Card: Intel® HD Graphics 3000


If this system can handle Lion/Mountain Lion, what would be the best method to get it installed? (iAtkos etc)


Many thanks for any help offered :)

Thanks for the quick reply, is there a way to do it without having to have a mac available to me? If no, I'll see if I can use my mums :)

Thanks again, I've managed to use a mac and have followed the tutorial word for word, but when booting the USB, I get to the apple screen, the wheel turns for about 1 minute then I get a grey cross, any ideas?


EDIT: I've also followed this tutorial, same problem still occurs after about 1 minute:
