    Maybe if you could post your specs, unless you want others search for your model/hardware to help.

    If your video is Intel HD 4500M then it doesn't matter what distro or OSX version you use. There isn't any QE/CI support yet. The best setting is manual resolution change using either kext or .plist entry.
    And BTW, use proper language, will you.

    Is the Wireless Lan working?
    I had iDeneb 1.6 Lite on this Notebook and the W-Lan wasn't working.

    Btw is there no fix for my graphic card? Because I need the programs iMovie and Keynote working on it. Other wise, I don't need an Hackmac.

    I don't know if your question is directed to me as this is not my thread.
    Anyway, if you do have the same video card then it's not a good news.
    OSX, without dedicated video function/no hardware acceleration (no QE/CI), is missing a lot of essential features. iMovie, Front Row, etc.. would not perform properly or not even run.
    There is no kext to enable QE/CI for now, and it doesn't look good in the near future either.

    I got stuck with two of those video cards, and would love to hear otherwise from you.

    Why do you want ICQ/MSN? I don't PM nor respond if it's installation related, only for personal message. The forum is for posting questions.

    If you want to ask me a question then quote my post or start your own thread, as this is not my thread so the question anyone posted here would be for either the original poster or whoever like to participate.

    As for additional distros, depends on Leopard or SL.

    I want SL. I think I'll go with iArktos 10.6.3 Do you think that's fine?
    Btw. I know how to install and burn etc. I already done that some time ago. I wanna know which Distro will work best for me.
