  1. Hi there! I have an existing Win7 installation on my intern SATA HDD with 2 existing NTFS partitions (Win7 creates another partition during install). Now i want to install Snow Leopard 10.6.3 which i have on a retail disc to the same HDD drive, using a newly created journaled partition for that OSX. How would i start doing this? Of course, the HDD drive uses MBR and not GUID and i definitely do not want to reinstall Win7, i want it to boot normaly after i install OSX. I know that there is some kind of problem with MBR vs. GUID, alternatively i could hook up an USB HDD which i formated GUID and journaled and install OSX on that drive? I have a chameleon boot cd here, would that help choosing between Win7 and OSX after installation to USB HDD? Does installing to the USB HDD alter/touch my existing Win7 partitions in any way? Also, if i use lets say Acronis True Image in order to make an image of my complete SATA HDD with all its partitions, would a restore of that image also restore the MBR if anything goes wrong during OSX installation? (of course, then OSX would be lost on the same HDD) Thanks for your help!
  2. Hi! Ich habe folgende Config die ich gern macen würde CPU: AMD Athlon II X3 425 Grafik: Sapphire Radeon HD 4550 512MB DDR3 Motherboard: MEDIONPC MS-7501 (Medion OEM Board, das "richtige" müsste eines dieser hier sein: K9A2GM-FD / FIH / FIH-S oder K9A2GM V2 oder K9A2GM V3) Chipset: AMD 770/870 (RX780) + SP5100 (SB700) Bios Version: A7501MLN.609 RAM: 4GB SDRAM DDR2 400.0 MHz (PC2-6400) HDD: SATA Drive Model: WDC WD6400AACS-00D6B1 DVD: Drive Model: HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GH22NS40 oder hier einsehen: http://www.mein-pc.eu/Profil/D-MS-7501/15946 Ist das prinzipiell möglich? Ich habe eine Snow Leopard Retail 10.6.3 DVD hier. Beim NC10 konnte ich strikt nach Anleitung vorgehen, bei einem "wilden" System fehlt mir allerdings der Plan. Wie muss ich da vorgehen? BootCD einlegen (Chameleon)? Damit booten? SL installieren? Patchen, Kernel tauschen??? Zur Hilfe!
  3. Hi there! Is it possible to hackintosh my AMD system? AMD Athlon II X3 425 Sapphire Radeon HD 4550 512MB DDR3 Motherboard: MEDIONPC MS-7501 (Medion OEM, might be: K9A2GM-FD / FIH / FIH-S or K9A2GM V2 or K9A2GM V3) Chipset: AMD 770/870 (RX780) + SP5100 (SB700) Bios: A7501MLN.609 RAM: 4GB SDRAM DDR2 400.0 MHz (PC2-6400) SATA HDD Drive: WDC WD6400AACS-00D6B1 SATA DVD Drive: HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GH22NS40 Where to start? I have a Snow Leopard Retail DVD. Should i try booting into Chameleon? What would be the first steps?
  4. same question here, does the internal LAN work?
  5. that's awesome! i posted the day before about exact the same board and if it would be good for osx. seems like i don't have to worry about that any longer (but i will stick with the onboard gfx chip and get no stand alone gfx card i think, onboard gfx is Intel GMA 3100 shared) and...this will also work with a sataII-hdd instead of ide-hdd, right? thanks for the great guide!
  6. i will buy a new pc with these components: - Intel Core 2 Duo E5200, 2x 2,5GHZ, Sockel775 - ASUS P5KPL-AM , Intel G31 Chipset - Grafik Intel GMA 3100 shared any chances that i run into installation problems with 10.5.5?
