  1. New Dell 14R has intel HD 3000 (Like new MBP's)

    I wrote up a guide for this laptop. It's working very well for me. http://www.tonymacx86.com/viewtopic.php?f=170&t=34134
  2. Dell Vostro 3450

    The retail snow leopard install disk will only install on a GPT formatted disk. That's why in my guide I have it install on an external GPT formatted drive and then copy it over to the MBR formatted internal drive. But before you try that, you might want to just test if you can boot with [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] and get the installer running without a kernel panic. If it does, then it might be worth the effort with the rest of the guide. Another way of installing on MBR is by restoring the installer disk to a usb drive or writeable sparsefile and modify the osinstall files to allow it to install to a MBR formatted drive. Search this site for osinstall and mbr for guides on how to do that.
  3. Dell Vostro 3450

    have you tried using tonymacx86's [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] with a retail DVD of Snow Leopard?
  4. Dell Vostro 3450

    Don't know if this will help, but I notice that the Dell Vostro 3450 uses the same BIOS as the Inspiron 14R N4110. I wrote up a guide for installing Lion on the N4110 (tho I don't have the hybrid graphics) and it might be useful to you. You can find it here... http://www.tonymacx86.com/viewtopic.php?f=170&t=34134
