Hey everyone, been working on this install for about a week now. I have calibrated touch (though not multi), wifi, bluetooth (via ext dongle), sound (without volume control, but mute button works), and graphics working. I used Ideneb 1.5.1 to install OSX version 10.5.7.

 

I am loving it so far. I just upgraded to 8 gb of ram because Windows 7 needs it. during the install I discovered that I could boot to the install disk with 4gb ram but not with 8gb ram. I thought I would get it installed and then I could pop in the other 4gb stick and all would be fine. Not so. I usually get a spinning boot screen sometimes it goes blue or black. pop out the 2nd 4gb stick and it boots up perfectly. I am running OSX with the qoopz 9.7.0 kernel. it seems that the whole system is 32-bit even though Win7 is 64-bit so I know my computer will do 64 bit.
