    Default Which distribution would work best for Dell Latitude D505?

    Hello. I've got a stock (except for a HD and Mem upgrade) Dell Latitude D505. I'd like to get OS X 10.5.4 or higher on it so I can use it for iPhone development (I have a bit of a budget crunch at the moment). I've downloaded and tried to install iATKOS 5i and iPC OSx86 10.5.6 Final.

    On each install attempt I can usually get through the install if I use MBR. On iPC the only customization option is to include some sort of SSE2 lib (I can't read all of the text - the install screens are greyscale and heavily pixelated). If I choose this and try to do a GUID or Apple Partition, the install fails. The install succeeds with MBR whether I select this option or not.

    After booting I get the B1 error cited here. If I do all of the commandline commands indicated in that post, that will usually get me to the desktop where the screen is still greyscaled and granulated. The second time I got this far I poked around in System Preferences and didn't see any other display options besides 1024x768 and 256 colors. I also noticed that I had no ethernet/wifi devices in the Network applet.

    After I get done in OS X, I restart to try and do the -f (I've tried it earlier but it doesn't sem to do anything), but I get stuck in a constant reboot loop that nothing seems to fix (I've retried the steps in the B1 error writeup, tried cpus=1, tried -legacy, -x, nothing works).

    I have zero familiarity with darwin/os x behind the scenes, so I don't know where to begin to diagnose this. I've looked here and tried to apply those notes to my situation, but they don't seem to be of any help.

    If anybody could help, I'd appreciate it.

    Thanks for your time.

    Default Having the Same issue!

    Hi!

    I started with and old Dell Inspiron 1100 with HDD upgrade to Western Digital 80GB, 640 DDR memory, XP loaded on primary and 25 GB extended logical partition for icp osx86 10.5.6 install. I have tried others, but this is BY FAR the closest and quickest I have come to a functioning Hackentosh. I can't really read the screen and although the fan is running occ., it is getting pretty hot, so got to shut it down now and hope for the best on re-start, hopefully armed with some more info. !

    Thanks in Advance!
