The full specks of my computer are and for video it also has a ASUS Silencer Series NVIDIA GeForce 6600 256 MB DDR SDRAM


I was able to install Kalyway 10.5.2 but it kept freezing on me, however I think It is because I put a space on the partition and I did not know macs hate spaces. another issue I am haveing is that none of my USB ports are working and I even have to install useing the PS/2 ports. Also I know I will probably not beable to get the sound card or wirless network card to work so I was wondering what would be the cheapest PCI sound and Network card I could get that would work with Mac OSX? I am content with Kalyway but I was wondering if there is a disktro that would get me to install Snow Leperd

Yes a HP7700 can run OS X, all the issues you are having can be resolved but you need to start by losing the distro, purchase the OS. one of your issues is that video card, you need to upgrade that to something newer or at least a GT210, 220, 240 or 250.


I posted in this forum how to get ML to run on a HP7700, 7800 and 7900.
