    Default Gateway DX4820-07h Hackint0sh Beast!

    Hey guys, I got a brand new PC from Gateway, its a Gateway DX4820-07h.
    And I was wondering what would be the best distro for me.

    Here are the spec's ripped from Futureshop (the reseller I bought it from).

    Base Features;
    Processor Type;--------Intel Core 2 Quad 8200
    Processor Speed;-------2.33GHz
    RAM;-------------------8GB DDR3 SDRAM
    Hard Drive Capacity;----1TB SATA
    Optical Drives;----------18x DVD+/-R/RW SuperMulti Drive
    Graphics;---------------ATI Radeon HD 4650 (1GB)

    Click here for more specs.

    If any additional information is needed please let me know, and also I would like to know if it would be possible for me to dual boot with my OS (Vista) and with Leopard.

    Note; If there is a 64bit version available please let me know. ^_^

    This computer would be a beast with Leopard.


    All help is appreciated.

    Seems compatible did you try already? follow munkys guide in the installation forum, or go with some distro like iatkos or ideneb, prepare yourself, read about system like your in the HCL to know how to customize, research your hardware, chipset and everything you can

    Good luck and dont forget to report back your progress ;D

    Heyy Shaon, if you ever get a Mac OS running, please do me a favour and let me know! Because I really want to try out a distro but for that I would have to format my drive, and I don't want to lose everything and in the end have that distro not work.

    So if you get around to actually loading a distro onto your PC and having it work, just let me know.

    First of all I want to thank the community for their good work. I have been lurking in these forums for a long time and tried to solve it myself.
    I am having trouble to boot into my hackintosh in 64-bit mode. Also I am unable to use resolution more than 1024x768. I have been trying to fix these two issues for quiet a long time without any luck. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I am running snow leopard 10.6 retail with chameleon boot loader2 RC3 on my pc for a few days now. detail specs are given below.

    Base Features;
    Processor Type;--------Intel Core 2 Quad 8200
    Processor Speed;-------2.33GHz
    RAM;-------------------8GB DDR3 SDRAM
    Hard Drive Capacity;----1TB SATA
    Optical Drives;----------18x DVD+/-R/RW SuperMulti Drive
    Graphics;---------------ATI Radeon HD 4650 (1GB)
