    Default Complete NOOB help required - installing OSX on Acer Aspire One 531

    Hi,

    Firstly, I have to say that I am a complete noob when it comes to making a hackintosh, in your replies, please assume I am stupid and need things explained to me like a child - thank you in advance.

    Hardware:
    Acer Aspire One 531 (A0531h -0bk)
    Processor Type: Intel Atom N270
    Processor speed: 1.6, 512, 533
    Memory Size 1Gb
    Memory Type DDR2
    Hard Drive Capacity 160 GB

    Software:
    (Dual boot using GRUB)
    Windows XP Home
    Ubuntu 9.10 Netbook Remix

    I would like to use OSX as a third boot option, could anyone point me in the right direction of a guide that explains everything in detail?

    I also have a powerbook running Tiger for any things that need to be done on that.

    Oh and a final point, I don't have a dvd/cd drive on this machine nor do I have an external one. I do however, have a 160Gb external drive and a 8Gb flash drive.

    Think that's it for now, any help is greatly appreciated!

    Default [Solved]

    I have successfully installed iAtkos v7 following this guide:
    http://www.hackint0sh.org/f181/94669.htm - massive thanks to bigplrbear!

    The only things I didn't do in this guide was boot from DVD (I used a USB HD), install the drivers for the wlan card, as it's pointless for my machine (uses AR5B95 - which also means wlan doesn't work: yet!) and I didn't completely wipe my HD as I wanted to multi-boot.

    Hope this helps anyone else trying to install OS X onto their A0531.

    So, to re-cap, my hardware now stands at:
    OS X 10.5.8, Windows XP Home & Ubuntu Netbook Remix booting via Chameleon on Acer Aspire One A0531.
    MacBook Pro 13 Running Snow Leopard.
    iPhone 3G[S] Jailbroken 3.1.

    Good Luck to anyone else who tries this - if you would like to know any of the steps that I took, hit a reply and I'll try to help.

    Possibly, is this yours: Products ??

    Definately worth giving it a go, what could go wrong

    Follow bigplrbear's guide and you shouldn't go far wrong - I'll help if I can and finally - good luck!
