Seems it doesn't look the Voodoo driver. I had the same problem with OS 10.5

Its the sound driver, just leave it out and install it later using the sigmatel driver

 

I now use iAtkos 10.6.3 which was flawless on the Dell Vostro 1500 (using it now) and sound works right out of the box. You just need to leave RTC uncheck for both (will give kernal panic if you use either of them)

I've just updated to 10.6.6, but have lost PS2 support at the moment. Am using USB mouse and keyboard until I can find some time sort it out. Sound working well too. Use voodoo for sound and keyboard/mouse in setup

You don't need any EFI strings for your video -works with the Nvidia enabler.

Oh, and don't bother with wireless - there's no driver for it so it wont work. That's been the only major problem with the Vostro and Mac OS X. You can use the 440x broad com driver though, but it only works with 1024MB DMA (easy to fix)

 

If you need any help let me know (I don't use the forums much anymore since my system is working)

email me at keys (at) darrylmiller.net

 

Good luck! :thumbsup_anim:
