Lenovo Thinkstation S20 4157-B41

I would like to install Mac OS Snow Leopard wether via VM or dual boot on my win8 machine. I saw various posts in the net that someone made it work, but no guide, link to DSDT or similar.


I tried it with Virtual Box but apperently something was missing which refered to my hardware. So I assume I need a DSDT and the guides extracting and compiling it are too hard to understand for me.


Does anyone know how to do it or can show me a linkt for the particular model?


Exact model is:

Lenovo ThinkStation S20 Intel Xeon W3540 (2.93GHz)
with: ATI Radeon HD 2400 Pro 256 MB to enable 2 Monitors
here are more details (sorry for posting a shop link but I found nothing as exact as this, its not available anymore anyway :-))



Thanks a lot.

OSx86 10.7 (Lion) - InsanelyMac Forum


note this Graphic card is a bit old, not sure if you can put this to work, but I suggest to you Start with Lion, Guide, not have  a guide just to this hardware, to install the process is the same to any hardware.


if you go use a Virtual Machine to make of the USBInstaller, can use Pandora app section downloads forum, myhack is a good option too


Good hack!!!
