Hi

 

I am a linux user with 10+ years of experience, i have 3 machines with *nix installed, one with Debian Squeeze, other with Slackware, and the last with Solaris 11 express.

 

I have two questions :

 

Considering that i have no free machine to test hackint0sh, is it possible to install any hackint0sh distro to an external USB HDD...?

 

My target machine will be a laptop

That currently has slackware installed, which i want to test for hackint0sh compatibility, so i want to know which distro, iPC, iAtkos, iDeneb or kalyway, and which release would be more adequate to my HW specs.

 

If someone here has similare experience in installinh any of these OSx86 distros to this kind of HW...

 

Thx in advance,

First off it is possible to install to a external drive. I have had luck with a DV4 using iPC and iDeneb on a DV1000. You look to be able to do a retail install. A little more of a learning curve, but it can be done. Go ahead and give retail or any of the distros a try. See which works the best. Good Luck

Hi landscapeman

 

Thx for your answer... I will try an iDeneb distro, 10.5.1
