Hey can someone please tell me if it is possible to install OS X in a computer other than a Mac. Once installed I believe features of the Mac such as a multi touch touchpad may not work but what about the softwares, would they work? What other features would not work?
Also would the OS need the drivers for sound, video etc to be installed externally?
I got a Athlon 64-bit 1.9 GHrz laptop, 1.5 GB RAM and am thinking of getting OS X installed, if possible.
I find that funny as hell.... I was just going to make a new topic saying im posting from my inspiron 1501...
but instead of vista I am using Mac OS X Leopard 10.5.2
everything except the sound works. I am working on that right now though. I will edit my post with a screenshot in a few.
PM me because you aren't allowed to do anything regarding illegal activities.
what about the softwares and the functions? which ones are you able to use and which ones you aren't?
Isn't it illegal to use Mac on anything other than Apple supplied hardware as per the Terms and Conditions?
Though, of course there's projects out there to let you run Mac OS on your PC, as we have seen in some of the above posts.
1. Its Illegal
2. All updates seem to break hackintosh
3. Its pretty much unstable on other hardware, which actually defeats the purpose of buying a mac
4. It does not work as its supposed to, i.e. trouble with dual booting (for a actual mac, its very easy, otherwise you have to use tboot, etc.)
5. Its cool with all the matching apple hardware, multitouch, media keys.
Athlon hardware doesn't really work well because Mac OS X wasn't designed to run on AMD. If you have a spare Intel box around, I'd suggest you try that instead.
There is an AMD dual core processor in the computer it's running on... and everything on the whole thing is compatible.. except the audio.
i was shocked when it worked with an AMD chip.
i also have tiger on this machine dual booted with xp.. it works really well.. but again no audio it has a sound blaster live chip..
it all depends on the kernel you run and the patches you apply. very easy to install on an AMD based machine.
i do have a question... about the specs.
Model Name: Mac Pro
Model Identifier: MacPro3,1
Processor Speed: 1.9 GHz
Total Number Of Cores: 2
Memory: 2 GB
Bus Speed: 200 MHz
Boot ROM Version: BOOT.EFI.V80
is this good for today?
Do you get external sound and wifi drivers for the OS X if you were to install them in another computer and there's no sound?
I have a kalway DVD... i tired installing two time but after installation it didn't boot succesfully both the times... i ll give my configuration can u help in the process like selecting the kernel, patches, etc.
AMD Athlon 6000+ [64bit]
ASUS MTN-SLI Deluxe
Nvidia G force 8400
500GB SATA Hard disk
80GB ATA Hard disc
And also tell me installing in SATA hard disk is better or ATA?
Well from your posts i cannot understand how you installed OSX.(I guess you must have PMed Ainied).
Anyway one thing which i think could work and without any problem in sound card is Virtual Machine. You can get a virtualization software like VMware(paid) or Innotec VirtualBox(free) and try installing OSX in them.
Now, i do not know whether they could emulate MAC or not, but i think its definitely worth trying.
what's this new device you hook up to your computer and you can install official Mac OS X without any hacks??? i read that somewhere but forgot where
