  1. If I were a motherboard manufacturer, I would go out of my way to make sure all my hardware is compatible with OS X, that way you would make some extra sales from the people wanting to build hackintoshes. Not sure if thats how companies think but that would be cool.
  2. Hi I wasn't really sure where to put this thread because it's not a guide but I'm not asking for help either, it's basically just a tip for people looking to buy a laptop compatible with OS X. Anyway, I hope it's ok in here. If you look on websites for recommended laptops that you can install OS X on, most of the ones recommended tend to be at least £200 and more, and I think that turns some people who don't have much money away (like myself) which I think is quite sad. So I just wanted to point out for anyone wondering, yes there are laptops out there which are fully compatible with OS X Lion/Mountain Lion that you can pick up for under £100 (on eBay mind you). Anyway, I recently picked up a hp nc6320 laptop with 2gbs ram, intel core 2 duo processor and GMA 950 graphics and I had OS X Lion running fine on there with iCloud set up in less than 3 hours. I don't think enough people realise you can pick up laptops this cheap that work with modern versions of OS X. So yeah I just wanted to give that tip to people out there who don't have much money but want to have their own little macbook. :-) There were a few issues with the nc6320 like only one core working but that can be fixed if you know how to do it! (Works pretty well on one core anyway). Also, you need to buy a usb wifi adapter cause the built in wifi don't work. Note: Sorry if this didn't need to be a thread, I just wanted to spread some friendly advice but had absolutely no idea where to put it.
  3. Hi I have a HP nc6320 laptop which I have installed OS X Lion 10.7.5 on. So far I have everything working perfectly except for my procesor (core 2 duo t7200). At the moment I can only boot if I disable dual core in the bios, if I try to boot with it enabled I get a kernel panic. I have searched around for answers to this problem and I came across a few which didn't work. So I'd be really greatful if someone here has the answer. Here are the specs to the laptop. Intel Core 2 Duo Processor T7200 2GB RAM Mobile Intel 945GM Express
  4. ATI Radeon HD 5450 Working On Snow Leopard

    Well it worked but I think I did something wrong because I don't have any other resolutions apart from the one I added to the boot.plist Also, its a bit sluggish. And my vram appears as 256 instead of 512
  5. ATI Radeon HD 5450 Working On Snow Leopard

    Thanks! Been looking for something to get ATI Radeon 5450 working. I'm going to try it out.
  6. Driver for GF 8600GT?

    I built a Hackintosh earlier today and tried to install the correct drivers for it by looking on here, I think I got the audio driver right because it seems to work ok but I think I messed up on the graphics driver, I ended up getting kernel panic and was only able to boot in safe mode. Anyway.. I formatted and started again, and this time I would like to do it properly. So which is the best driver to use for my Nvidia 8600GT graphics card? Any advice would be helpful. My motherboard is M2N SLI Delux, dunno if that helps or not. Sorry if this thread doesn't belong here or if I sound like a complete doofus, thats just what I am so w/e... Thanks in advance
