I read the wiki on it and it said it had no issues with AMD on an nforce4 board.

I will keep trying...

Does anyone else have this working on an AMD CPU?

UPDATE:

I got it to fully install and I just went through the registration process. Now now I just need to tweak a few things. Internet doesn't work, and I am on wireless so that might take a while. Other than that, I am going to get iLife, and MS Office for MAC and see how this goes.

Awesome! Glad to see you got it working. Let us know what you think when you've used it for a little while.

Ya, I just kept trying with some different options. I wish I would have written it down step by step in case I need to install it again in the future.

Once I did get it installed, I didn't have any time at all to mess around. I went through the tutorial that set it up initially and it wouldn't boot from that. I manually restarted and it boots fine with that now. I need to get some fixes on it and see where I am then. I need to find a wireless internet card fix, and some other stuff.

Does anyone know if there are drivers for a wireless card(s)?

Wow, dude that sucks. Yeah, if I boot back into Vista, my clock is reset and my hard drives go nuts. Guess Vista is checking for new hardware or something like that.

btw, even Boot Camp has that issue with the clock
I have Vista and OS X on two separate HDDs.

WinXP is the same way.

Uh oh! This thread is a sticky thread!

I was hoping to get my Vostro today but it looks like I won't get it until tomorrow or Wednesday. Once I do get it, I am going to install OSX along with Windows XP.
