    Default Will these 2 computers work with OSX?

    I just recently bought a Dell Mini 10 (not 10v). I have heard different places that it will work or won't work. It has a Intel Atom N450 processor. It has 1GB of RAM.


    I have an older desktop that has an AMD 64 X2 6000+. It has the Nvidia GeForce 6150SE right now, but I can put in my ATI Radeon 4670 if that helps. It has 2GB of RAM. Its wireless adapter is a Realtek RTL8185. Its ethernet adapter (which I use more frequently) is a Nvidia nForce. Its sound card is a Realtek sound card.


    Will these 2 computers work with any version of OS X?
    Thanks

    Edit: FOr the Dell Mini 10, I heard something about using a file called dsdt.aml to get it working. How would I go about doing this?

    Hi there,
    For the Dell, you may have to do some searching. For you desktop, it depends on what chipsets on your motherboard. If you have a full AHCI supporting chipset then you should be able to get OSX running without much trouble.
    Regards,

    How would I figure out if my motherboard supports it? Is there a menu I can get into in Windows XP?

    For the netbook, do you have any pointers of where to look? I really don't even know how to or what the requirements are for hackintoshing, so I don't have a clue what to start with.

    Hi there,
    Once you get OSX up and running, that "old desktop" may not be so old. There is new iMac with core 2 at 3Ghz. Mine is x2 3800+ 2.5Ghz running at 3.25Ghz beautifully with both Leopard and Snow Leopard.
    You may want to install OSX on the desktop first before getting into your netbook.You can search for CPU-Z and use it to note down your list of hardware for install selection.
    Go to your BIOS first to see if there is an option of enable ACPI, SATA to AHCI instead of IDE. If there are then you're half way through. Mine is the same class as your CPU, but the motherboard chipsets are SB600 series.
    Regards,
