Installing OSX on a Dell?

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I have a Dell XPS 400, with the following specs:

 

Intel Pentium D 2.80GHz

3gb DDR2 of RAM

250gb 7200 RPM Hard Drive

ATi Radeon HD 4350 by XFX

Windows 7 Home Premium

 

I have tried to install OSX on here before, with little to no success

 

iAtkos 5i 10.5.5: Installed correctly, booted, internet worked, sound worked (with HDApatcher), keyboard/mouse worked, but the only thing that didn't work was the graphics. There was no Quartz Extreme, and I couldn't find any drivers for that.

 

JaS 10.4.8: Installed correctly, booted, and the same as iAtkos - internet worked, sound worked (out of the box, though), keyboard/mouse, but NO Quartz Extreme. OSX was very laggy without that.

 

iDeneb 1.5: Installed correctly, but failed to boot (kernel panic)

 

I've had the most success with iAtkos 5i 10.5.5, because that version updated successfully to 10.5.8 with no problems. The only problem is that I need drivers for my ATi Radeon HD 4350 card. Are there any supported .kext files for that specific card? Thanks.

 

All I need is a working .kext driver for it and I will be happy.

Have you tried to install with retail SL 10.6.3 and Nawcom ModCD?

No, but I tried the Hazard 10.6.2 DVD (which failed to boot, kernel panic)

 

Try iATKOS S3 v2.

Try iATKOS S3 v2.

 

I downloaded it and burned it to a DVD, but which drivers should I use? I have an ATi Radeon HD 4350 graphics card, a Dell 0YC523 motherboard, Intel Pentium D 820, 250gb Hard Drive.

 

The instructions for my processor is: MMX, SSE (1, 2, 3), EM64T

Package: Socket 775 LGA

 

Motherboard: Dell Inc. 0YC523

Chipset: Intel i945

Southbridge: Intel 82801GB (ICH7/R)

BIOS: Dell Inc. A07

 

RAM: 3072 MBytes

 

Graphics: ATi Radeon HD 4350 (code name: RV710)

 

Are there drivers available for my chipset, motherboard, graphics, etc. included in iAtkos s3 v2? Thanks!!
