I am proud to say I am running my Gateway P7805u laptop with OSX 10.6.6 installed.

 

I have 6.6 installed on my second hard drive (this model has two hard drive bays) which is a WD 160 GB 7200 RPM. My Windows 7 Ultimate boot is on my primary WD 320 GB 7200 RPM. I have added a new processor, an Intel T9900 3.06 GHz, which was a simple, incredible upgrade from the stock Intel P8400 2.26 GHz (I've lost some battery life with this but it doesn't bother me). I have also added the Apple Airport Extreme Wireless Upgrade Kit for Mac Pro (part # MB988Z/A) to replace my Intel 5100 WiFi card to get functional WiFi in OSX, works like a charm on my Win7 side as well.

 

I followed two guides, mixing stuff from both here and there to get operational.

 

I followed ssaslam's guide on this website (topic 236522) and a bit from the guide at tonymacx86.com

 

I have everything working great except for:

 

Webcam

Microphone

Headphone Jack

 

If anyone has any ideas or is familiar with this machine help would be very much appreciated.

 

Thank you very much.
