Dual Booting on Sony Vaio F Series
I am new to these forums and I am looking to dual boot Windows 7(64 bit) and either Leopard or Snow Leopard on the Sony Vaio F Series(VPCF112FX/B) that I will be ordering this week(and am super excited about). Here are the specs:
Intel Core i7 - 720QM processor
4GB DDR3/1333MHz RAM
500GB 7200 RPM Serial ATA HD
NVIDIAŽ GeForceŽ 310M GPU
I haven't seen much on these forums or others about anyone even attempting on this model. Has anyone tried? Anyone successful? Any issues I am(most likely)unaware of?
I have never tried OSX on a PC before and would appreciate any tips and ideas.
Thanks in Advance!
If you've never tried OSX on a PC before, get ready for a $hitload of misery. Its not easy and takes a shit load of time to figure.
Even if you are lucky enough to get OSX installed, then comes the hard part of trying to get your drivers to work.
However, its not impossible. Just search through forums and posts and get ready to try a million different install methods until you find the right one.
As far as snow leopard goes, I don't think there is a way to have that and windows 7 on the same harddrive. Unless your laptop supports two harddrives, you should go with Leopard. Most people I run into have success using iAtkos5 or iAtkos7.
Dual booting by itself isn't a problem. EasyBCD makes it really easy. The only dual booting kind of becomes a issue is when you have two harddrives to deal with. I have Snow Leopard on one Harddrive and 7 on another and I have no idea how to get it working without having to manually select each harddrive in the BIOS whenever I restart.
