Suggestions for install on Asrock SKT-AM2, AMD Athlon 64 x2 4000+ please!
GREETINGS ALL! I Was wondering if you could help me out. I have a retail version of 10.5 but my research tells me this will not work on a AMD machine so i have to look elsewhere.
I would like, if possible, to dual boot with already installed OS [genuine Windows xp home] with osx 10.5, or even better Snow Leopard.
I do not mind unistalling xp, but reading on net, it seems better to have it already installed.
preferably i would like to install the partitions on my 40gb Hard drive and use my second 250gb as storage for files/samples/etc.
Win xp Home is installed on both drives but master is the 250 gig.
My pc specs
MOBO - Asrock SKT-AM2 (K10N78FULLHD-HSLI)
CPU - AMD 64 Athlon x2 4000+ processor @ 2.6ghz
Ram - 2x2gb OCZ 6400 SLI
Dvd Ram drive connected via sata
250gig Hitachi hard disk - Master
40gig ExcelStar hard disk
Both Hard drives connected via IDE
Onboard graphics - 512mb Nvidia Geforce 8200
Looking through this forum for a while i see Lawless and Kalyway is the most recommended for this spec and also Tubgirl, Uphuck and Jas.
Which version of Leapord and Boot/Distribution would you recommend for this spec bearing in mind i would like to dual boot with Xp Home?
I also have a macbook with Leopard 10.5 and Parrallels desktop running windows xp.
Would it be easier to install Mac osx on this pc and parrallels to switch operating systems?:rolleyes:
Thanks for your time and i look forward to your reply! :)
Oh, and one more thing, could anyone direct me to a place listing internal sound cards that work well with hackintosh?
I have a Audigy soundblaster audio card but i think this might cause problems so i've taken it out of the pc.
