I not new to hackintoshing but i cant seem to find anything about hackintosh-ing my Dell Inspiron M5040 With an AMD E2 Vision processor. I dont know what bootloader to use and i dont know if i can use the lion installer from the Mac appstore to upgrade it to Mac OS X Lion.

which model? must be new. dont see anything either. it uses a HM57 chipset and a AMD E-xxx series CPU. so youll want to use a snow leo (10.6) retail DVD install method with a legacy kernel for AMD. this boot cd should be good: http://www.mediafire.com/?o4t0i5wdzkm inf about it: http://prasys.info/2010/01/empire-efi-v-1-085-is-out/ Note: you must have a USB or dvd of retail snow leopard.



no, you cant use that to upgrade. have to do a clean install. and anywas AMD dont work well on lion/ML. here is an experimental guide for lion on AMD. http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/278181-amd-1073-guide-experimental-only/
