  1. I have done some research to see what netbooks/laptops are capable of running OSx86 SL and have come to find this dell mini runs it pretty well. I currently have Full running 10.6.4 SL running on my desktop via TonyMacOSx86 and love SL(still use PC but only for gaming). I am trying to find a working that distro that will work flawlessly or close to with this netbook. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!
  2. Will it run... Brand New Custom Built PC

    Post your specific specs for your computer here. Might be easier for people to help you.(I know you said Vostro 1510, more info always helpful ;D) Also depending on your computer specs: http://www.tonymacx86.com may be of help. This method is mostly reliable with Gigabyte mobo's

    "you do not see the big red link that says "Download Kakewalk" It is not the actual ISO though, it was a guide or something, and the guide doesn't even list where to get the kakewalk Distro
  6. Will it run... Brand New Custom Built PC

    When I change HD to RAID or AHCI and reboot, it gets to the windows loading screen then blue screens. Can't figure out why its doing that. I'm thinking its because I had it set as IDE when I installed win7 to begin with? I should have maybe had the RAID or AHCI option on before installing? Also, the kakewalk is distro is no where to be found, just the guide.
  7. My computer specs are as follows: http://theblackbox.homeftp.net/Random/Desktop%20Specs.pdf I am curious if there is a OSx distro that will run with these specifications, or anything that will possibly run. I have tried Leo4allv3 and thats it. I can boot to the disk utility but it does not list the HDs, only the CD drive. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Total Memory: 512MB Network: Broadcom 4321AG 802.11a/b/g/draft-n Wi-Fi Adapter Disk Drive: SAMSUNG HM120JI & SAMSUNG HM250JI Have tried several installations before, but have quit trying since none of them were working. Any help would be appreciated, Thanks!
  10. HP Pavilion dv9730us Capable?

    Ok so wasted 4 hours out of my night to download a Snow OSx iso. I can run from the CD, but after pressing enter at the command prompt, and it hits the white screen with the Apple logo, it reboots my computer. If this has happend to anyone else, let me know please and how to fix this problem
  11. I have tried several of the OSX 10.5 installations but none of which worked for this laptop. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- System Model: HP Pavilion dv9700 Notebook PC (dv9730us) Processor: AMD Turion 64 X2 Mobile Technology TL-64, MMX, 3DNow (2 CPUs), ~2.2ghz Memory: 3072MB Ram (actually 4) GFX: NVIDIA GeForce 7150M / nForce 630M Integrated RAMDAC Approx. Total Memory: 512MB Network: Broadcom 4321AG 802.11a/b/g/draft-n Wi-Fi Adapter Disk Drive: SAMSUNG HM120JI & SAMSUNG HM250JI ------------------------------------------------------------------------ I have not yet tried to run Snow Leopard just yet as I am still acquiring it, but I am curious if it's even worth downloading the 4 gigs seeing none of the 10.5 installations with OSx worked. If anyone has any tips or has had a successful installation with a setup similar to my own, please enlighten me with which .iso installation you used, and if you had any troubles with it but figured it out and how. Thanks
  12. Been having a problem finding a OS X distro that will work with this type of laptop.

Specs: Disk Drives - Samsung HM250JI ATA Device: Main Hard Drive Samsung HM120JI ATA Device: 2nd Hard drive Display Adapter - NVIDIA GeForce 7150M / nForce 630m Processors - AMD Turion 64 X2 Mobile Technology TL-64 AMD Turion 64 X2 Mobile Technology TL-64 Screenshot of Specs also attached. Any help would be greatly appreciated, Thanks!
  13. Leo4allv3 On dv9000

    Alright, i tried installing Leo4allv3 on dv9730us Pavilion laptop, i have gotten further with this than i did with kalyway. I am able to see the harddrives but i am not able to mount the harddrives, or make HFS+ partitions off of the 111.8gb Harddrive. Everytime i try to erase or make a partition, it tries for about 15-20 mins then just says, Error... Timed out... Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thx!
  14. HD is not detected on Kalyway 10.5.2, could this be a chipset problem, AMD processor chipset: maybe nforce but not sure, 4 gigs of ram, SATA HD's, Graphics Card: Nvidia 7150m / 630m. Disk Utility does not recognize the HD's on Boot Disk Any help would be appreciated
