Gateway to Hackintosh
I am brand new to all of this. I need a mac to develop for the iPhone, but don't have the money to buy a MacBook. But I do have an old Gateway laptop that I'd like to turn into a Hackintosh. It is currently dual-booting XP and Ubuntu. Here are the hardware specs:
AMD Turion 64 X2 Mobile
1.60 GHz, 1.87 GB of RAM
I know this machine isn't anywhere near ideal, but I hope that it is possible to hackintosh-ify. However, I don't even know where to start.
I really appreciate any help you can give me.
I've tried to get my computer working with hackintosh and i've only managed to get iDeneb v1.3 to work. Shutdown/restart did not work tho.
Here are my speccs:
Motherboard: Manufacturer: Asus - Motherboard Name: A8M2N-LA - HP/Compaq motherboard name: Nodus3-GL8E
Chipset: NVIDIA GeForce 6150 LE
Processor: AMD Athlon 64 X2 5400+
Graphic Card: Nvidia GeForce 8800GTS - 640 MB GDDR3 SDRAM memory - I/O Ports: S-Video, single-link DVI-I, dual-link DVI-I
Ram: 2 GB - DDR2 SDRAM - DIMM 240-pin
Hard Drive 2 x 320 GB - standard - Serial ATA-150 - 7200 rpm
I really hope someone could help me. Thanks

I know this machine isn't anywhere near ideal, but I don't buy a new one.
Can You suggest me which version of mac I need to install? Which driver I need for my chipset?
I really appreciate any help you can give me.
Well, the problem is that you need a seatbelt.kext that matches your kernel to be installed. the freezing/kernel panic happens when you try to mount the installation dmg files.

You didn't list one of the most important specs - graphics card/chipset!!

Dear kind people at Hackint0sh, here are my specs:
AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb 3.4GHz
POWERCOLOR PCS+ AX4890 1GBD5-PPH Radeon HD 4890
G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1200
Western Digital Caviar Black WD7501AALS 750GB
At this point i'm just trying to find a distro that works. I haven't found too many good threads about AMD hackintosh yet but i just joined this forum. Can someone point me to a good thread or torrent (or better yet a .nzb for usenet). Many thanks for your considerations!
And perhaps i should point out that im trying to install this on a 30gb partition on my windows 7 drive. Do i actually need to format this partition before install or will the installer do this for me like it will with windows?
