    N41, these are both craazy finds... Installing MAC on any pc, thats craazy! I see alot of people using this, I would just to try it out.

    And the OQO running on OS X as well ?! The only negative thing I saw was the 2 minute startup, but wow, what an advance for the world of technology.

    I think this is a historical fact in hackint0sh development. Great news, and day by day, a hackint0sh is closer to be a original Mac.

    So as I understand it, you get a usb dongle of some kind (or a jumpdrive?) and then use a legit disc and you can install OSX without issue?

    Are there still issues with specific drivers (audio,video, network) to be done?
    My Current System:

    Dell XPS 420

    CPU - Intel Core 2 Quad Processor Q9450 (2.66GHz 1333FSB) with 12MB cache
    Memory - 3GB DDR2 (800MHz)
    Video - Nvidia 8800GTS 320MB
    Hard Drives - 320Gb VISTA, 400Gb Data, 250Gb OSX
    OS - Currently Vista... but I am reading and learning before I take the plunge of OSX

    im pleased to see someone did this. i was discussing the possibility of doing this with f41qu3 recently. in order to support booting from RAID mirrors, the mac kernel has the ability to bootstrap from a special, very small 'Apple_Boot' partition and then perform OS boot from another, or a set of others for RAID. looks like the usb dongle boots a patched kernel system, then from there boots the retail Leopard disc. genius.

    i guess after you install, it works the same way - your machine is booting from the dongle first, which detects any bootable Mac OS X installations, and can perform this same 'chain booting' scenario.

    has some info about how this works.
    Intel D945GTP / Pentium D920 / X1800XL / 191 Geekbench
    MacBook Pro / Core Duo 1.83Ghz / X1600 128Mb / 160 Geekbench

    I personally am interested, if it would enable me to not have to kill myself to get things working, then I am all for it.

    One of the issues of being new is the steep learning curve.
