Hello,

 

I have the following laptop.

 

Compaq CQ62-225NR

 

Specs

Processor Speed 2.1 GHz

Processor Name AMD Athlon II P320

RAM 3 GB

Graphics Card ATI Radeon HD 4250

Storage Capacity (as Tested) 320 GB

Networking Options 802.11n

Primary Optical Drive Dual-Layer DVD+/-RW

 

BIOS is insyde bios, can't make any changes it won't let me.

 

Is it worth me trying to install Snow Leopard on this machine?

 

Thanks

OK, i've managed to install SL on the laptop, and updated to 10.6.5

 

1. Can I use tonyMac's [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] to install boot loader.

2. Can't use laptop keyboard or built in mouse pad on the laptop, i have connected a usb mouse and keyboard? - Any ideas on how to fix this

 

Thanks

OK update, got "still waiting for root" after update to 10.6.5, totally stuck on what to do now, so going to give it a break for a while.
