    Default Is my laptop compatible

    Hello I'm totally new to Mac OSX but have a few year with linux and I was wondering before I start reading tutorial if my hardware will work. Notebook Spec :

    Clevo M860TU (Eurocom) | P8400 | 2GB DDR3 | 9800M GT 512MB | 15" WSXGA+ | 320go@5400rpm | intel 5300 agn (I don't care about the wireless) | chipest ich9m

    Just a yes/no and the name of the release I should use will be enough I'll do the reading/searching myself

    Thanks

    Try with iPC or ideneb, they both should work in your system without problems, report back your progress ;D

    Thanks I tried iDeneb it installed in 15 min but now I'm stuck in 1024x768 and with some serious video glitch. Every time I scroll or move something it become sort of transparent.

    So before I go further could somebody help me with the geeky word because I'm a bit lost. What is QI/CE (or something like that),EFI string, nvinject, nvkush,nvdarwin, nvanything

    Default Awesome

    Well that was much too simple. I reinstalled and this time I saw the personalize button so I selected chameleon and nvdarwin 512mb and guess what I'm now in 1680x1050 with QE enabled on internal display then I though let's try external screen, guess what I plugged it and it worked instantly. Awesome.

    Now all I have to do is find the "start button" but seriously where are all the application shortcut stored and I have no idea how to make my sound card work

    lol I was semi-kidding about the start button, I feel a bit lost without it

    I'm almost certain my audio chipset is realtek alc262 but I don't know how to verify it. I reinstalled with the alc262 driver selected but still no sound.

    Also while almost everything work can you recommend a software to make an image of my partition

    Last one how is it possible that every time I try to start my PC with DVI plugged it crash and then the boot is broke (only solution I have found is to reinstall )

    [EDIT] actually it is a alc662 which hopefully explain why I have no sound.
