    I am very new to this whole hackintosh stuff (took my first stab at it over the weekend) but I will share what I have done so far with my Extensa 5630. I burned 10.6.0 on a DL DVD and then burned Empire EFI on a CD. I booted off the Empire cd and then swapped out to the SL disk. It took about 45mins to load. When it reboots it will fail. You have to put the Empire CD back in and boot from it. This time you select your OSX partition from the menu and it will boot up just fine. At this point you should have a working webcam, basic video at the native 1280x800 and ethernet. Sound and WiFi are still missing. I then ran myHack from the Empire CD which installs the bootloader on your HD so you no longer need to chain load from the Empire CD. In the end I managed to find kexts to get the battery meter, ethernet and onboard sound to work. I still don't have hardware acceleration for video and no WiFi. I backed up all the kext's I used and took notes on exactly what I did to get it running. I can share all this if you would like. My next step is to upgrade to 10.6.2 or 10.6.3. My goal is to get iPhone SDK 3.2 running but it requires 10.6.2+. I haven't had luck upgrading yet.

    As far as I know there is no support at all for the X4500 or the Intel 5100 wireless card. That isn't a big deal for what I need it for (xcode).

    I used an unpatched retail DVD. The magic is in the Empire EFI boot loader.

    The version of Empire EFI is used can be downloaded here:
    EmpireEFI_V1085_R2.zip

    Just burn that ISO on a CD and boot from it. Then after it boots, eject the CD and then put the retail DVD in and wait for it to spin up. Then hit F5 to refresh the list. Then select the DVD from the menu and it will boot into the installer.

    I will zip up the kexts I used along with the notes I took and then I will give you a link.

    Like you, my goal is to get access to the iPhone SDK. But it requires 10.6.2. I haven't had success upgrading yet. I am going to give it another shot this weekend.

    BTW, I have a handful of spare hard drives. I removed my main disk and put in one of my spares. I didn't want to mess with dual booting yet. I may do that later on though. I wish our laptops would boot from the eSATA port. Such a stupid limitation. If you could, I would load OSX on an external 3.5in drive.
