Dell Inspiron 530 - Is OSX86 capable of running on it?

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello. I was wondering if my machine is at all capable of running OSX. I looked at the instructions line in CPU-Z and it says I'm capable of running SSE 1, 2 and 3.

- System specifications -
Intel Celeron 450 CPU (Single core)
nVidia GeForce 7800GT GPU (MSI)
Currently running WIndows 7, and Ubuntu on a seperate drive (which I will dedicate to OSX if possible)

If you need anymore information just ask!

Yes you should be fine. Graphics will have native support as the 7300 is used on the MacPro1,1.


Not sure if you'll be able run Lion/Mountain Lion (unsure of single core support) but Snow Leopard shouldn't be a problem.
