Looking for a miracle

Recommended Posts

Hello guys, i'm trying to become a graphic desiner so i was looking for good programs on the? web.. Then i find out that they are all for mac.. =/
So here is the problem i have 2 windows pc with the same hardware expect for the graphic card:

?

Cpu= Intel pentium E2160

Ram=2gb ddr2 333mhz

MotherBoard= asustek p5ld2-x/1333

GraphicCard= Radeon x1550 or nvidia 6200LE

?

I know, i have really hold computes, but guess what.. i have to deal with it, i can't afford by now buying a new pc, If i could start working properly with better softwares for things like HTML5 i could afford to buy a Mac, without issues and a proper hardware
I know that if i could install the OS it would be slow, or other strange things could happen.
That's what i managed to reach by know. Installing ML2 with clover by using smbios change to names like MacBook4,1 to MacPro3,1 but it stops on RTC:only single ram bank (128k)

?

I do really hope someone could help me out, any version of the OS would be awesome, i don't really care.
?

Best Regards

Emanuele

Your board should run with OSX 10.6 or higher. However the CPU may have issues with Apple´s stock kernel.

As a workaround, you could try Nawcom´s legacy_kernels for OSX builds higher than 10.6.2.

Also it occurs to me that ATI X1300/X1550 were only supported in Snow Leopard 10.6.

No idea about your NV6200, but I know my NV7100 iGPU was unsupported in OSX.

A main obstacle for OSX is the sATA operation mode. If you can set sATA to AHCI in BIOS, things may just work.

?

So for now, I would go for a Snow Leopard setup, maybe with a legacy_kernel.

Apple still sells 10.6: http://store.apple.com/us/product/MC573Z/A/mac-os-x-106-snow-leopard

Nowcom´s mod CD is here: http://www.hackintoshosx.com/files/file/1561-nawcom-modcd-0-3-2/

Best wishes!

Clover offers the best support for hacking new boards enabling all Apple features.

Chameleon is probably easier for getting things rolling.

Nawcom´s Mod uses an old flavor of Chameleon by the way.

AHCI was often disguised by names like "legacy", "compatible" or else.

If you are missing any option like that, you might look for a modded bios or simply give Nawcom´s Mod a whirl.

If you reach the OS X installer and no HDD is seen, your sATA controller is unsupported.

Chances are not too bad that Nawcoms Mod picks up your ICH7 controller somehow though.
