Holy Cow youmolo!!!

I have been tinkering with which laptop to go with to install this great OSX86

 

Toshiba R15

Dell Inspiron 600m

Compaq X1000

 

and after seeing your crazy easy post, hands down - X1000

 

Did you get 10.4.3 to work as easy as well?

Thanks.

 

This is from youmolo's website, just posted here for quick reference for all:

Here's a step-by-step instruction on installing Mac OSX on your PC. Note that it might not work because of different hardware.

 

For me, I do not have a USB drive to put in the 6GB hard disk image file. But I do have 2 Presarios.

 

Download tiger-x86.tar.bz2 from torrent sites

 

Unzip everything on to another computer or if you have, your USB disk.

 

On the computer that you want to install Mac OSX, boot into Knoppix using the Knoppix Live CD

 

Boot into Knoppix and mount your other computer's share or your USB drive

 

At the console, type in dd if=tiger-x86-flat.img of=/dev/hda and let it copy the image to your hard disk. Took me around 2 hours

 

Shutdown Knoppix and restart your computer

 

Welcome to Mac OSX! It's that easy! Now you have a fully functional Mac that performs as well as the real thing!
