  1. i have a dell xps studio 1800 can i run mac os x on it

    my bios doesn't have AHCI controller it has RAID how do i get around this, also have another piece of hardware that might have been posing problems, my ATI Radeon HD 5770, how do i boot into apple installer because the RAID problem is causing all of this, as for the ATI Radeon, you tell me will it be a problem or will it be okay
  2. all of my hardware is compatible (the processor INTEL Core i7, and the video card ATI Radeon HD 5770 has been proven to work) but the only setback is that my machine uses RAID as a SATA controller not AHCI, so i need a boot loader that supports my ATI video card and my RAID controller (probably trick apple into thinking that it's an AHCI) does such a boot loader exsist and where can i get it
  3. i have a dell xps studio 1800 can i run mac os x on it

    are there any changes i need to make to the bios before i try installing mac os x on my machine again or is it just not possible i already have the hazzard one, the iatkos one and a legitimate copy of osx leopard i have the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url], [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] legacy, and boot132 bootloaders so i have several of the necessary supplies but i really want to know how i can install it on this machine it seems possible, i did some research and my video card and processor are compatible with mac os x i just need some instructions on what to do with my motherboard's bios here are my video card and processor processor: INTEL CORE I7 video card: ATI RADEON HD 5700 series
  4. can you re-post a link to the disk with modified kexts i'm doing some tinkering and was wondering if it would make any difference in my machines cooperating with this hackintosh stuff i haven't had much luck lately
  5. i have a dell xps studio 1800 can i run mac os x on it

    alright i was tinkering around with the bios settings and i was using the boot 132 with retail disk method and this is what happened, i disabled the CPUs support and nothing else. i booted from the boot 132 boot disk and when the darwin screen came up i slipped in the leopard disk and pressed enter. the apple logo appeared like i wanted it to but the problem now is that it only shows for 5 seconds. then the machine resets itself. is there some things that i am not getting here because it obviously works with my machine its just not booting onto the os x disk and staying in the installer. if it makes any difference i am not using the mac os x snow leopard retail disk i am using a copy of mac os x leopard disk i also tried using the mac os x snow leopard disk made by hazzard and it did nothing different just displayed the darwin screen, pressed enter to boot from cd and the machine reseted itself no nothing changed there do i need to have a copy of snow leopard instead of leopard as i understand some of these materials might now be interchangeable with one another but thats what i've heard i don't want to use an illegally patched copy of os x i want to use the boot 132 disk and legitimate retail copy of osx method as i hear is completely legal since there is no modifications made to the operating system's code to get it to work it just stays the same i appreciate the help everyone
  6. i have a dell xps studio 1800 can i run mac os x on it

    i just used theiatkos v7 image and it did the same thing that the boot 132 method did and i also tried the hazzard patched one and the same thing happened again what is going on there are there some bios setting i need to set or will it just not work on this machine
  7. i have a dell xps studio 1800 can i run mac os x on it

    i did the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] and [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] method the screen just went completely black and the cd drive started to spin like crazy nothing else happened i don't know what iatkos is and what it will do since i haven't had the chance to find a download link for it (iatkos isn't illegal is it?) or try it. i have a legitimate copy of mac os x snow leopard but i don't know what will make it work on my machine, do i also need a special modified boot132 image because i understand that every boot132 image is designed to run on certain types of machines. i used the generic boot132 image and all it did was restart the computer when it started to boot from the cd are there any special setting that i need to make in the bios
  8. i have a dell xps studio 1800 with an intel core i7 processor, 1TB of hard drive space and 8GB of RAM, i have used boot132 before but it just froze when i started to boot from the retail copy of mac os x snow leppard is mac os x running on this machine even possible if sp what do i need to do in order to make it work
  9. i just went out and bought a copy of leopard and really want to install it on my dell pc, i have been hunting down the bootloaders on the internet for days now and none of them work (boot 132 was the closest and will be the one i would mostly concentrate on) what happenes is that when i boot it from the boot 132 disk and insert the leopard disk and press enter so it can boot the leopard disk the screen goes black and the computer restarts it self i'm really confused here all i know about this machine is that it has an intel core i7 8GB RAM and 1TB harddrive (split it in half the other half belongs to ubuntu and the machine originally ran 7 home premium) tank you for all your help
