Dell N5030 Install Questions
Hello, Im sorry to bug whoever takes the time out to respond to this but im wondering what the best distro would be for a Dell inspiron N5030
the videocard is Graphics Card Intel GMA 4500MHD
the link is Newegg.com - DELL Inspiron N5030 (iN5030-2112B3D) Notebook Intel Pentium T4500(2.30GHz) 15.6" 4GB Memory DDR3 1333 320GB HDD 5400rpm DVD±R/RW Intel GMA 4500MHD if you need anymore information im not equipped to give yet..
Ive downloaded hazard which gave me an elliot error. and ipc which se works. gave me no sound and improper resolution
im downloading iatkos and got the 35 dollars to purchase a retail snow leopard hopefully one of those works but if anyone could give me a definitive i would jump on it happily
I have a dell e6500 4 gigs ram, 2.2 core 2 duo intel + intel 4500 mhd
I got LAN and sound working, but the Intel 4500MHD = GOOD LUCK.
You will get graphics to work, but there won't be any acceleration (they call it qe/ci, I call it yo momma).
There is a fix floating around that allows you to change to native resolution for screen, but since my hackintosh has been running for 3 days now - im scared to change it!
Basically, I used xboot.
First I went to bios, changed the boot sequence to CD first, then made sure the irrt wasn't select (use ahci I believe instead).
Then I booted up to xboot, then it stopped spinning (xboot cd) I took it out, then put in the SLeopard dvd. Then I hit f5, and the disc shows up.....then I get the mac splash screen.
*then you create a partition from the disk utility at top* << otherwise you won't see any drives.
Then you select your language, etc and then poof things are working ....sorta.
use kext helper to install kexts, I got essentials like LAN and sound to work, but nothing else (no wifi, no bluetooth, no graphics acceleration)
trackpad and keyboard work.
