    Default Leopard on Dell Vostro 1510 [Solved]

    I have been trying to setup iDeneb 1.3 10.5.5 dual boot with Vista Home on Dell Vostro 1510 for many days now...and had little success

    The installation goes well, but on the first boot, I get,

    boot0: MBR
    boot0: error!

    and the system halts. I followed the steps here after which the screen changes to,

    boot0: MBR
    boot0: done!

    and the system just stays there with a blinking cursor.

    I have one drive with 3 partitions,
    1> Recovery disk
    2> Vista
    3> MAC

    The system specs are,

    Intel C2D T8100 2.1GHz
    NVidia GeForce 8400
    3GB DDR2 Ram @667
    160 GB SATA Drive

    would appreciate any help .... in fact desperate for help

    thanks again icchansan, it solved the boot0: error problem. The system now boots successfully to the screen with Apple logo but after some time the system just halts. I tried booting in verbose mode and found some errors like,

    could not set mach lookup policy for service com.apple.bsd.dirhelper err=1100....(more similar errors)

    The system boots successfully in safe mode. I am guessing that some driver is missing and I need to try different combinations during installation

    I am looking around for the solutions...would appreciate any help

    Thanks

    Default So what's the verdict?

    So, after hours and hours of research, and after having already built a DellMini Hackintosh (using genuine OSX installation and DellEFI drivers), I've been looking to turn my Dell Vostro 1510 into a MAC.

    A few questions:
    1) Can I install OSX natively to it, as I did with my DellMini (used an external USB drive with the installation image of 10.5.8 on it to install directly)...or do I HAVE to use an OSX86 distro like ideneb, IPC, KalyWAY etc?

    2) Has anybody actually managed to come to the final point of functionality with this thing? That is, has anybody finally figured out, for certain, all the things that do and don't work on it-conclusively- or are people still playing with it?

    3) Where's the most updated guide you can refer me to in order to get as much of this system to work, as possible?

    4) Finally, which distro would be most recommended?

    It says a few posts up, that somebody managed to solve most/all of the issues with the functionality of the Notebook. Any help/updates/places to point me?
