Default Re: Official Unofficial OSX on your non-Apple hardware thread

Screenshot below. Machine is fully functional, with graphics acceleration, keyboard/mouse, audio, WiFi, and ethernet all working. Need to play with smbios.plist to enable the CPU states (so it slows when battery is used) and get a new kext to enable the battery and sleep states. Besides those minor things (add 2 lines to a text file and install 2 kext's), machine is running 10.7.2 and good to go.

Nate, if you want to run OSX, I suggest you use retail installations (i.e. purchase Snow Leopard and/or Lion). Not only do you gain a better understanding of how it all works, you also support the software (despite the fact it's a legal grey area). I suggest you follow the tutorials found here:

My Snow Leopard and Lion installs were both done using a retail copy of Snow Leopard (10.6.3) I purchased at Best Buy, and a copy of Lion I purchased on the app store.
