    Default Snow Leopard on Dell Precision t7400

    Hi All,

    I have been supplied with a dell t7400 dual quad core box ,currently running serv 2008,and i was wondering how easy it would be to run Snow Leopard on it as i have SL on my mac book pro and would love to be able to run OS X rather than windows

    How easy is it to install SL on such a Dell box

    Any help would be appreciated

    Cheers

    I got my Dell optiplex 330 to run Leopard. Depends on selecting the proper kext for the hardware. I have yet to get SL to boot without kernel panics. I think the 10.0.0 kernel is incompatible, and it may work better with 9.x.x.

    Make a listing of your hardware and check the hardware compatibility lists. I was able to piece together that what I had in the Dell would be close enough for it to work. Getting the proper distro turned out to be a crooked path. Ended up using iATKOS v7, since it is most stable and lets you use EFI, vanilla kernel, and native system update. It installed as 10.5.7, and with one system update call it is as good as my G4.

    You may need to swap out hardware. The optiplex had some junk as onboard, so I had to use Intel Pro 100v for NIC and NVidia instead of onboard GMA3100. Right now she has been running for a week without any issues and all important parts work. Just the thing is so UGLY!
