What Which DVD for my systems, what hardware will/won´t work?

Recommended Posts



I would like to install MacOS X on two PCs, also I read a lot of topics in this forum, I still don´t know for sure what of my hardware is supported, which release (JaS, tubgirl...) I should use etc..

Specs of the PCs:


1. PC:

Processor: AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+ (supporting SSE3)

Mainboard: Asus A8N-SLI Premium (nforce4 chipset)

Graphics: ATI X1600XT (RV530XT)


2. PC:

Processor: AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+ (supporting SSE3)

Mainboard: MSI K9N Platinum (nforce570 chipset)

Graphics: ATI X1300 or similar (don´t know exactly)




My questions are:

Will I be able to access SATA disks (if yes how fast/stable)?

Will I be able to install to a SATA disk?

Will Firewire work?

Will lan/wlan work?

Onboard sound is unimportant, audio devices with MacOS X drivers should work?

Will this new EFI-emulation-stuff work for me at all, because I use AMD (and the advantage of booting an original kernel is gone)?

Will the system be stable and useable at all?

Are the install-dvds multi-language (not just english)?

Will both cores work?

Will cool'n'quiet work?


I´m sorry I got that many questions, I read a lot before posting this, but there seems to be a lot of progress in the development and so there are many posts here that do not a agree with each other.


What install-dvd is recommend for this hardware? Or should I wait a few weeks until there is good leopard installer?
