Well, I'll take that as a no.

 

I'll be trying on my Montevina laptop that should be coming early next week, so perhaps in the future my failure or success will be helpful to someone.

As in it won't recognize the DVD as bootable or just doesn't go into Darwin?

 

I am booting from DVD right now waiting to see if I can get it to install. I am trying the newest Leo4All first and I have iDeneb and Kalyway as backups.

 

This is for a T400 with T9400.

 

It seems to be installing fine. I guess the only issues now will be whether it boots into OS X and also driver issues with the newer platform... like I have the newest intel wireless card and the newer intel integrated video.

 

edit:

It installed without issue, or so it seems.

I just created an account, and it seems to automatically recognize my built-in webcam!

Ok it also loaded into OS X time.

About This Mac says "2.53 GHz unknown"

It recognizes my 4GB of RAM but only as DDR2 667 not DDR3 1066

 

Unfortunately, not much works. The integrated video doesn't get recognized, and my display is only at 1024x768 instead of 1440x900.

Wireless and LAN don't work.

Perhaps there's hope for those with Montevina chipsets like me... at least more hope for more hardware compatibility...

Apple is rumored to be releasing new aluminum MacBooks potentially with Montevina within the next few days/weeks.
