    That's a damn fine question. Go out on the net and find every version of Hackintosh that you can find along with an original OSX DVD. Get the bootloader thing that is suppose to let you install with a factory install OSX disk.

    Then start trying them until you get one that will actually load and install. Pick your kext & fixes wisely and when it doesn't start up, you get kernal panics or whatever, reinstall it again and pick different kext & fixes. Make sure you set the BIOS options as suggested for whatever distro you're using. Try all the boot options like the CPU thing for dual cores, the -v stuff and all that junk.

    I'm not trying to be a smartass to you but basically it's what I went through cause I couldn't ever get one person to answer me or help me. So I downloaded a pile of these cracked OSX disk...tried installing them until I got one that worked...and then reinstalled it about 5 times before I picked the magic combo that got me into OSX...working...and posting to you from it right now.

    I use iDeneb v10.5.6 and everything works perfect on a Dell 2200. Yeah, it's an older laptop but it works enough to let me know I want to buy a real Apple now.

    A word of advice for you and everyone else whose having trouble... If you get down to the last few fractions on the install bar when installing and it just sits there...turn off the computer. I've never had a copy yet that would fully install and reboot on it's own...and iDeneb works for me. I had to make sure I picked the seatbeltfix might need it also. You'll just have to experiment until you find the secret door that lets you into the secret room where people actually respond to post.
