    Default Dell Adamo Hackintosh -- Possible?

    Hi guys,

    I recently ordered a Dell Adamo ultraportable to use mostly for schoolwork. My 15" MBP crashed and burned a few months ago, but for maximum productivity I think I like OS X a little better than Windows 7...and since I still have a genuine copy of Snow Leopard I never got a chance to use before my MBP crashed (as well as my Office for Mac discs), I was wondering if it would be possible to convert my adamo into a nice hackintosh.

    Here are a full list of the specs for anyone not familiar (I'll try to include only the relevant details):
    - Intel® Core™ 2 Duo SU9400 (1.4GHz/800MHz FSB/3M L2 Cache)-
    - 128GB Solid State Drive
    - Intel® GS45 Integrated Graphics with 256MB Memory
    - Intel® 5300 WLAN 802.11n (3x3) Mini Card
    - High Definition Audio 2.0
    - Dell Wireless 370 Bluetooth Module (2.1+EDR)
    - Integrated Gigabit (10/100/1000) Network Card

    What I'd like to know is whether it would be possible to get the adamo running Snow Leopard with (hopefully) all of the components still working. At the very least, I'd like to know if its possible to get it running with at least the most necessary components working (i.e. - wifi not working would be a deal breaker).

    Anyways, I don't know too much about hackintosh-ing, but I am pretty capable when it comes to dealing with computers, so if it is possible and there is a somewhat decent installation guide that could work I'm sure I could figure it out.

    Thanks for the help!
