I have been trying to Hackintosh my Xps 8100 for a week now. And i know other people would really like to have someone help with doing this because i see more and more people asking on how to on multiple forums yet people just ignore the topics ;) . I also know that all the hardware on this will work because i have seen other people doing Hackintoshs with the same hardware.


Some other things that i need help with is when i try to boot to the installer on the Pc it just restarts again and just goes to windows.


Can someone please help me hackintosh my Pc with this hardware.

I have successfully installed OSX 10.6.3 and update to 10.6.7 with everything working QE/CI/CL on Dell Studio XPS 8100. more instruction at the bottom


USE RAID mode and you also need to inject AHCIPortinjector.kext into /Extra folder of the installation Disc. in raid mode it's ICH8R for studio xps 8100 and you don't need to modify AHCIPortinjector.kext, it is already added there. I use [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] then iAtkos S3 V2 Disc for installation. Without AHCIPortinjector.kext you can successfully go to Installation screen but disc utility will not show/recognize any sata drives. Dont forget to take out ram if your system is more than 4GB. You can insert more Ram after it's successfully installed and boot.
