    Default New laptop- Hackintosh clueless

    I just purchased this laptop:


    Newegg.com

    dv7-2180us


    Intel Core 2 Quad Q9000 2.0G
    ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4650
    HDD 500GB
    HDD RPM 5400rpm
    HDD Interface SATA

    I've seen a few posts (just joined today) concerning similar models using nvidia cards, but haven't had any luck finding anything about this particular model. I'd like to know if it is hackintosh capable, and if so what distro should I try using.

    Seems compatible but I think theres no support for your video card, check in the HCL just in case

    For the ATI Radeon HD4650, you may want to look at netkas' ATY_INIT.
    Visit netkas.org for more information
