    I think theres no support for your videop card, you can always check in the HCL or check in netkas site, good luck

    i have tried to use empire efi to install snow leopard, so far macos installation starts but stops on a "macos x can't be installed on your system" with no further explanations, i can choose the langage tho, so i guess its a problem of harddrive ? the harddrive is a ssd intel postville with windows 7 and ubuntu on it, do i need to erase everything or erase a partition to make the installer happy ? the partition i want to install sl on is atm a ntfs partition.

    some news about my attempt :
    i succeeded to install SL on my m15x.
    now i am fighting to create a viable and stable multiboot environment with 7 and ubuntu, especialy i havent found any bootloader able to launch SL, 7 and ubuntu.
    grub2 sees macOSX but fails to boot on it.
    also it seems that i do need some driver for video and ethernet.
