    Running OSX on my PC
  1. Hi, I was wondering wether it would be possible to install OSX Mavericks onto this motherboard, CPU and GPU Combo as I have done lots of reading but can't find much about it anywhere. I'm not that experienced with this but I got my AMD PC to work with Mavericks so surely this one has to go easier with it being a Intel motherboard. Any help would be greatly appreciated
  2. Hi, I hope someone can help me as I'm having some issues installing OSX on my computer. Now I did expect problems as it's an AMD so it's not supported by an means of the imagination. But everytime I manage to install OSX using some guide or another I get past the installer and formatting the HDD but then it sticks on a black screen after the Apple Logo on 1st boot. After this issue I managed to work around it using the boot flags "-x -f -v GraphicsEnabler=No" which worked once and then stopped. Someone recommended I use -x and -v only but that stopped at IOBluetoothHCIControler. Any help would be greatly appreciated

    PackardBell TJ68 and OSX (Attempt 2)

    Okay so after some hard work I have got the laptop to boot up with OSX (Not Auto). Here is what works: CPU Battery HDD Display (Only at 1024x768) WiFi (Genuinely Amazed) These work after kexts are installed: Touch Pad (Very Broken) Audio Display (Maybe) These out and out don't work LAN Light Up buttons (Mute, battery save, Transfer) But that was to be expected
  4. Hi, as some of you may be aware I tried to install OSX on my old laptop (HP DV6) with no avail. Since then I have downgraded to a Packard Bell TJ68, so now I am wondering if I could run ANY version of OSX on my laptop. The Laptops spec's are: CPU: Intel Pentium Dual-Core T4300 (2.1Ghz) GPU: Mobile Intel 4 Series Express Chipset Family Audio: Conextant HD Audio WiFi: Atheros AR5B91 Lan: Broadcom Netlink Gigabit Ethernet I've looked at some guides and studdied on the basic steps but still need a bit of help as I'm relativley new to this (Also I don't have a Mac for Images, just a .dmg file from my friend with a Mac but unfortunatley I do not have access to his mac at the moment and I'm a bit impatient)
