Bump for the love of god, I have been trying to get OS X to work for months.
Install get start
It's not easy. I have a VAIO NR-385E/W. It s the same unit with a different processor basically.
For the sake of cramped Hard drive space and performance - you might want to consider getting a 320 gig 7200 rpm 16 meg cache hardrive and switching everything to it before starting. About $70 bucks today for the drive. Deep Search Results You can use usb and a copy program below to move the OS/s and all files to the new drive. USB 2.0 2.5" SATA HARD DISK DRIVE CASE Enclosure New - eBay (item 280353402721 end time Jul-02-09 09:23:08 PDT)
Then put the new drive with the O/S copied to it in the laptop permanently and continue below.
BE ADVISED - if you are going to copy the Vista install to the new drive - only a few O/S copy routine products will work - vista has a hard drive identifier and the NTFS file system for Vista is different enough that it will not work unless certain products are used. Symantec has (or at least once had) a version of Ghost that works and so does Acronis. (Acronis True Image 2009 Cloning) It's a tricky thing to get done successfully.

OTHERWISE . . . .
First you'll want to save your Windows Vista I am sure.
So then the first thing is to get EasyBCD and install it. this will let you dual boot after the install and get Vista Working again
Second you need to resize the hard drive partition to make room for OSx using Vista
Windows vista now comes with a utility for this Resize a Partition for Free in Windows Vista :: the How-To Geek
Then you can begin the OSx install process.
You'll want to use a MacOSx distribution at 10.5.6 or higher - preferably ppf5 or greater
After the install - you'll need a Vista boot/repair disk to repair the bootsector so the Windows bootloader will work again with EasyBCD and launch either OSx or Vista.
How to Make a Windows Vista Repair Disk If You Don't Have One :: the How-To Geek
You can download it as a image from Microsoft - it is ONLY a boot and repair disk you burn as an ISO image to a DVD.
Later you can get MacDrive to see the OSx install from inside Windows and Parallels to run Windows from inside the OSx
Be warned - you may likely have trouble with video after even a successful install. I am having video problems getting the Mac OSx to show - even though the install is good - so I am going to have to try to upgrade from 10.5.5. to 10.5.7
Since this is a freebie - I am going to stop here.
That's how you start.
Yeah but what he could do to save copying Vista which is quite hard, is just to install OS X on the external hard drive and boot from USB when he wanted to use the Pwnage tool.

I want to use OS X long term, I have gotten a successful install using Kalyway 10.5.2 before, but the graphics and wireless were having problems, if anyone can offer any help
