Dell Venue 8, Atom Z3740D ?

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Anyone working on a Dell Venue 8 project?


I would like to give mine a try, just wondering if anyone else is working on one. 


Pointers would be appreciated.


Will Mavericks run on these specs?   Will the TouchBase drivers be compatible?




Dell Venue 8 Pro, 8" Touch tablet

Intel Atom Z3740D 1.33ghz

2gb RAM

Pre-installed Win 8.1 32bit, but 64 compatible



Experienced in Win, noob to OS X.  (Very little xp w/Apple, at least not since my old Apple II+.  Doubt Apple Basic is used much anymore...."10 REM ***Its been a while***")


Thanks for any helpful feedback !

Atom CPU isn't supported in OSX... sorry

Try find a modified kernel to your CPU.. google is your friend!

Create your USB bootable: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/280756-guide-the-all-in-one-guide-to-vanilla-os-x-including-chameleon-dsdt-for-beginners/
And add this mach_kernel(modified to your CPU)in root folder..

After install OSX(i don't know what version work for kernel that you'll get)put this kernel inroo folder(of your HDD)...

Good Luck!
