So I bought my girlfriend a unibody Macbook about a month ago and fell in love with the OS. I think I would like to try installing OSX on my computer, but have no idea what version to start with. Here is a list of my components:


Foxconn C51XEM2AA Motherboard w/nvidia nforce 570

AMD Athlon 64 X2 6400+

2 EVGA 320-P2-N811-AR GeForce 8800 GTS in SLi

4 GB DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400)

Realtek 7.1 Audio

Marvell ethernet chip


Please advise on what I need to get OSX on this computer. Keep in mind I also have a retail version of OSx on hand.\

Whichinstall? I have been try for days now. I have had a somewhat working version of iatkos v1.0 10.5.1 working except for video drivers. I have tried literaly every release. I get the completed install on them but after boot i either get the apple window of death. the circle with the line. or a message saying please restart.


Anyone have this working with a simalar setup to mine?


The only way I have gotten this to work is to use iatkos v1.0 and not select any customization. just click install.
