HP Compaq Presario CQ61 - Can I use OSX?


1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

I have an HP Compaq Presario CQ61 with the following hardware (according to windows device manager) -


|-ACPI x64-based PC (HP Compaq Presario CQ61)
|-Display adapters
| `-AMD M880G with ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4200
|-Network adapters
| |-Atheros AR9285 802.11b/g/n Wifi Adapter
| `-Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller
| `-AMD Sempron M100
`-Sound, video and game controllers
 |-ATI High Definition Audio Device
 `-IDT High Definition Audio Codec


I would like to know, which version of OSX I should try to install and which installer to use.

I suppose the most important part of the setup there is the display adaptor, does anyone know if it will work properly under Leopard/Snow Leopard?

Also, how do you know which kernal to use and which other options to set during the install? Is there some sort of utility available for windows (as an example) which can tell you which drivers you need or if there are even any available for your setup?


Sorry for the n00b questions, but if anyone can help, please do. This is extremely new to me.
