    Question Snow Leopard on Samsung Q210

    Hi there!,

    I've spend the better part of my time last weekend attempting to install Snow Leopard on my recently replaced Samsung Q210. I've seen OSX in action on my GF's MacBookPro and I was pleasantly surprised by the absolute easy of working with it.

    A quick google revealed that some people where succesful in installing it on the Q210 as far back as 2008.

    For me not so easy installing it though, this is what I have done so far;
    - downloaded serveral iso's with retail install files for 10.5.x and 10.6.x OSX
    - also downloaded IATKOS dvd's, the i7 and s5 version.
    - also downloaded a few virtual machines containing pre-installed OSX's.

    My first attempt was trying a chameleon bootdisk in combination with a retail dvd, this crapped out with the cursor at a module that looked like something audio related. I them attempted the myHack boot using a external usb disk preloaded with my GF's retail DVD and the last version of MyHack, this actually gave me a graphical setup environment but it could not find my internal sata disk. I've tried adding relevant Kext files to the extension folder and loading them during setup but the HDD remained a ghost. My last attempt was getting a VM to run, but VMware refused to run them, complaining that the Q210 is not a 64bit system.

    So I decided to register here, since the last post concerning a Q210 was the most recent of the fora I found (april 2011).

    Here are my specs;
    brand: Samsung
    type: NP Q210 AS01 NL
    CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo Mobile P7350
    motherboard chip: Intel Mobile PM45
    memory: 3GB DDR2 (SODIMM)
    video: GeForce 9200M GS
    optics: DVD+/-RW DL
    connecions: 3x USB 2.0
    wifi network: 802.11a, 802.11b, 802.11g, 802.11n
    network: Ethernet 1Gbps
    bluetooth: Bluetooth 2.0
    interface: Expresscard 34
    modem: Modem
    extra's: Cardreader, Webcam

    I think my best angle of attack is figuring out how to get my external usb install disk extended with Kext's to become able to recognize my Intel Mobile PM45 chipset. But I'm open to any expert advise.

    Can any hackint0sh guru assit me in getting it to work?

    Kind regards,

    Maurits Meijer
