I've installed OS X and hangs in the white screen with the Apple logo. When I was in the boot menu press -v-f-x , he does it. Does anyone know how I can solve this? :D

Holy thread revival! IDK if anyone will see this, but this is the only thread on the interewebs about this PC. I managed to get SL on this thing with the Legacy Kernel. I updated to 10.6.8, and then popped the HD into my other machine as and reloaded the 10.6.8 Legacy Kernel. 


I can't get graphics working properly, so I'll just buy a Geforce 210 and a PCI 1x to PCI 16x adapter. 


Maybe I'll try Lion cuz of the 32 bit support. In SL, everything works except the graphics. Also Google Chrome is buggy (I think it's a gfx issue, just use FIrefox or Safari).


Happy Hackintoshing!


EDIT: I decided not to bother with this because I'm working on making Snow Leopard work on PowerPC.
