    Default OSx on Toshiba Satellite A205-4787

    Hi all, I've been asked to code a bit of XCODE and I don't want to splash out on a mac if I'm never going to use it again. However, I've got this Toshiba Satellite laying around that I think i can install OSX on it. I've been trying but I'd like to know if it's possible before trying to debug it - at the moment I've got it as far as installing 10.6.1 and then it throws up a kernel panic. Any comments would be appreciated.

    Here's the spec:

    IntelŽ CentrinoŽ processor technology
    • IntelŽ Core™ 2 Duo Processor T5300
    o 1.73GHz, 2MB L2, 533MHz FSB with 64-bit

    o Mobile IntelŽ 945GM Express Chipset
    • Integrated Wi-FiŽ compliant wireless LAN
    o IntelŽ PRO/Wireless 3945ABG (802.11a/b/g)
    Memory
    • Configured with 2048MB DDR2 SDRAM (both memory slots may be
    occupied). Maximum capacity 4096MB
    Hard Disk Drive
    • 200GB (4200 RPM); Serial ATA hard disk drive
    Fixed Optical Disk Drive
    • DVD SuperMulti (+/-R double layer) drive supporting 11 formats
    o Maximum speed and compatibility: CD-ROM (24x), CD-R (24x),
    CD-RW (16x), DVD-ROM (8x), DVD-R (Single Layer, (8x)),
    DVD-R (Double Layer, (4x)), DVD-RW (6x), DVD+R (Single
    Layer, (8x)), DVD+R (Double Layer, (4x)), DVD+RW (8x), DVDRAM
    (5x)
    Display
    • 15.4” diagonal widescreen TruBriteŽTFT LCD display at 1280x800
    native resolution (WXGA)
    o Native support for 720p content
    Graphics
    • IntelŽ Graphics Media Accelerator 950 with 8MB-256MB dynamically
    allocated shared graphics memory

    Small update - I've managed to get leo4allv3-10.5.1 installed on there with success but I'll need to update the drivers for some stuff first.

    Alrighty then - Snow Leopard 10.6.1 is on there but I have no sound or ethernet and it's probably some kexts I'm missing still.

    Did a fresh install of 10.6.6 and mouse and keyboard work fine but no ethernet or sound.
