Serious Challenge for OSX86 Gurus

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I have a Dell Inspiron 1000 notebook and have tried a million times to install Mac OS on it. Every distro I have tried fails. Even tried iPortable Snow. All a no go. I found one post online where a guy said he got Tiger installed but he left no instructions. Does anyone have ANY ideas how to make OS X work on this Dell? There has to be a way to do it. Here is the specs:

SiS M650 Integrated Graphics - 64MB shared DDR SDRAM

[15" XGA TFT active-matrix display with 1024 x 768 resolution]

Don't bother. There are no drivers for SiS M650.

512 MB shared with GFX is too small for for Snow or Leopard.

Your CPU is also out of date and I think OSX requires at last two cores.

Yea that's what I thought. Oh well. It's just an old dusty notebook I had lying around and thought maybe it would work. Thanks so much for the reply though! ;-)
