I am new to this stuff, but I beleve it is possible to get that kind of processor to work. The new iMac's have Core i7's in them, but there is all kinds of Mac distros you can find out there. iAKOTOS, iPC, iDENAB, the real Mac OS X dvds (needs patching), and a few others. I am currently trying to dual boot Windows 7 and Mac OS X Snow Leopard 10.6, but use this guide (It may work, hopefully) I have below. Hope I was some help to you. I'm a Noobie.


Snow Leopard on Gateway NV53 series



Gateway NV5378u:

AMD Athlon II X2 M320 2.1GHz

4GB DDR2 Ram 333MHz


15.6 Widescreen LCD Backlit Display HD 720p

Windows 7 Professional x64

I installed Vista onto a partitioned section of my Mac OS X 10.5.8 using boot camp. But there are no installed drivers for things like internet wireless.Everything I searched says you need disc 1 of the Mac OS installation and I have it. But what do you do with it?Do you boot the Vista Side then pop in the disc?Do you pop in the disc right after booting and do some configuration or something?Or do you install it on the Mac side?
