JaS 10.4.8 will certainly work comfortably on that computer.


For installation, I recommend the following packages. They all come with JaS.


- Anything that's labeled AMD.

- The nVidia (NV40) drivers.


That's about it, really. Anything else you might want can be downloaded later, but these settings and packages should get you into OSX quickly and nicely before you have to change anything. Tell me if you have any issues and I'd be more than willing to troubleshoot with you.

it might not work if - correct me if i am wrong- the hard disk is sata.


if i am wrong let me know, as i have a similar laptop and it comes with sata disk and no kext has been developed so far to let us install osx86 on it.
