Greeting to all. I love apple and its products, and especially its computer OS, MAC OSX! I don't know what happened I think I was extremely high and I ended up ordering a DELL XPS STUDIO 16" from dell because it has a 1080p resolution and its perfect when i connect it to my HDTV.


I hate windows vista and I hope you guys would help me install mac os x leopard on my laptop. Preferably 10.5.6.




SO far, iPC 10.5.6 Final release won't even boot up, it was stuck on the apple logo on a white screen for like 10 mins before i decided to give up.


iDeneb 10.5.6 booted up and I installed it with configuration very close to mine, but after finishing the installation I got the "dead os" screen.. you know where it displays a message in few different languages.. claiming that you should hold down the power button and restart because you're f*cked.






I need to install mac os on this laptop or i will give it to someone for free like fo realz yall! (britney... get it? :( )




Oh here is the specs of the computer.

Hey, I was wondering if you got leopard working yet on the Dell Studio XPS 16.


Have you had any chance to install it and see if the graphics and wifi worked?

I want to get this laptop, and it would be really cool if we could get leopard running on it?


I might be able to help with problems if you have any, or whenever you actually install mac


Thanks and let me know
