  1. Ultra-portable + Mac OS X 86

    I have installed 10.4.8 on my old Panasonic Toughbook CF-W2. It is 2.4lb with a built-in optical. Slow processor (900MHz). Everything worked except PCMCIA and brightness control. Wireless card was originally Intel and was replaced with Broadcom (Dell) card. Dual boot with XP. Not the fastest, but impressed several people.
  2. I successfully installed OSX86 on Dell GX270 with dual boot and multiple hard drives. I used the 10.4.8 SSE2 SSE3 installer. The hardware configuration: 2.8GHz Pentium 4 (Prescott), 1GB RAM, 400GB SATA (OSX), 120GB IDE-prime (WinXP-NTFS), 250GB IDE-slave (HTF+), DVD-R/RW, DVD-ROM, Firewire PCI (generic brand), NVidia 6200 LE 256MB. I installed OSX without any options except the Titan NVidia. Installation went through without a problem, but at the reboot it stuck at the blue screen with no pointer. I restarted in a "Safe Boot" mode, and everything seemed OK. No mouse tearing, full resolution (1600x1200). Workaround: I noticed the the "AGPGart.kext" file in the Extensions folder. For some reason, I decided to take it out. After the reboot, everything was working well. Even QE and CI were supported. No Callisto needed. Only thing is the 6200LE is recognized as a PCI card. I don't know what is downside of having it as the PCI, but everything seems to be in-order. I don't know this applies to anyone else, but it worked for me.
