Please help me with distro selection, what will be the best for my spec's.

You know I tried a lot of things, read a lot of threads.


As of now my best result was "Safe Mode" with iDeneb v1.6.


Of course I am interested in newer version of Mac OS X Snow Leo or Lion, but with those distros I had big problems.

With iATKOS S3 I was not able to launch Mac OS X after installation, panic happened.

Lion does not wanted to start installation.



Thank You all in advance.


Update 1.

a) As I understand for my hardware configuration Vanilla Kernel is preferable.

:) I have built in Intel 945GM graphics. Driver for Intel 950GMA works with 945GM without any problems.

Hi guys!


Why you are so quite?


Please share your ideas what is the best way to get latest possible Mac OS X on my laptop.


I now started thinking about VMware, how do you think will it be better solution?
