    Default Samsung Series 7 Slate my dream OSX setup

    So i bought a samsung series 7 (Amazon.com: Samsung Series 7 XE700T1A-A03US 11.6-Inch Slate (128 GB, Win 7 HP): Computers & Accessories)
    It has a wacom digitizer and multi touch screen, not to mention pretty great battery life and an awesome design.

    Well last week I was able to install a retail version of lion via multiboot. It actually went way easier than all of the previous PC's ive attempted installs on. It even had touch, pen, bluetooth, micro sd, usb, and it seemed QE/CI out of box, i also got sound and battery working. The only things i needed to get working were wifi and native resolution of 1366x768. Considering its technically an 11" macbook air it should be pretty easy to get going. Unfortunately I was partitioning it in windows to try the install again and now it wont even turn on. Its saying "remove disks or other media, press any key to restart" then when i press a key it says "reboot and select proper boot device etc..." I imagine the partitioning corruped the MBR but it wont even let me into bios to boot from an external. The microsoft store i spoke to said i could do an exchange but this time i plan on being extra careful and even decided to ask you guys for help. what are your thoughts?

    I want to try the same on mine. Did you need to do anything special for sound / battery? Any other hints?

    It was pretty easy and straight forward. Just do an install then use multibeast post installer for "laptop battery" and latest voodoo sound drivers. Now all i need is resolution and wifi..

    Thanks! One last noob question - did you use any particular bootloader?

    I haven't tried to hackintosh anything since around the Leopard days when you had to use a custom install disk, which would make things simple...

    Did you have Lion 10.7.0? I tried this last night with Unibeast & a fresh copy of Lion from the app store (10.7.2) and I got a blank screen after the Apple logo. Tried all the options the bootloader gave me, but no dice.

    Oh shit my bad im working on a step by step.. What i did was.. Im pretty sure its just version 10.7.0. Then made the usb, when at the boot loader screen press volume down on the osx installer and select -f "ignore caches". Use the screen lock button to select. Let me know if this works with your version.

    Gotcha. Thanks man. I tried that with my copy and it didn't budge, though I'll try again to be sure. Meanwhile I'll try to get a copy of 10.7.0...

    EDIT: Success! Got the installer running (with touchscreen it appears) using a Unibeast-created flash drive with 10.7.0. Will attempt an install to an external drive later today.

    Awesome! Yeah it has pen and touch OOB. i have a feeling it should be pretty easy to get it up and fully running.
