Snow Leopold on Asus X5DIJ Series ?
i'll admit i am a total Mac noobie.
I recently got my hands on an iphone 4 and would like to play around a little with app creation. As far as i understand i will need Mac Os to do so. Since i don't own a apple laptop i was wondering if it is possible to install Mac Os on my Asus X5DIJ?
Cpu : Pentium T4300
MB : K5OIJ
HDD : 500GB
Ram : 4GB
VGA : Intel GMA 4500M
Any help is much appreciated
Same here... Asus X5DIJ
Can anyone point me in the right direction?.
Iīm downloading iAtkos 3... thatīs Leopard 10.6.3... Is that the bestr aproach?
If the installation fails or goes wrong is there a risk of messing up the computer or the windows installation?.
i can confirm that the X5DIJ (sx538v) can run OS X 10.6.6. i am writing on it as we speak.
installation is not so straight forward.
you can do the retail install using iBoot and mulibeast. you install 10.6.3 first then do a combo update to the 10.6.7. this install was just a bit bland for me and i had some trouble getting some of the kext to work correctly.
the iatkos s3 did install but i had a lot of trouble with it. again with some the kext files.
my personal best install is the "hazard 10.6.6i" but as any install, not everything works from the outset.
but with any dual install, there will always be a chance that you can mess up the windows portion. so it deadly important that you backup everything just in case. and you could even do a full drive back up. that way, if you do mess the windows portion up, you can restore the laptop back to the factory settings. if you want to make a dual boot system, i would suggest you also download a version of win7. again, just in case you need to re-install win7.
in the past two weeks, i have been messing around with different settings and installs. and below is what works best for me.
GMA4500MHDD FOR ALL MACHINE - kext for the display. this is not a full fix. but it's the best of the rest.
IO80211Family - for the air port (wifi) to work
audio. the audio does work. but its either fully on or fully off. im am looking for a new kext to fix this problem.
there are other little problems. but nothing that will upset or bother me.
downloaded from the net. as i messed up the original install.
i used iBoot and multibeast (google iBoot) to create the dual boot.
hope this helps. if you want further help or advice, then just drop me a line and i will try to help you out.
I do have the same Asus notebook and I'm trying to get Hazard 10.6.6 running as well. Unfortunately the DVD-Rom is broken so I'm trying to get the ISO booting via USB-Stick.
What happened so far:
I used my Mac mini to download and copy the ISO to a 8GB USB-Stick.
Booting the Asus with that stick failed because of a not-a-bootable-device error.
So I created a bootstick using Xubuntu (currently the system running on that Asus) and the dd command (dd if=path/to/iso of=/dev/sdX1 bs=10M). This seems to work fine as I checked the box "make device bootable" before formatting. Of course I first formatted and then dd'd the ISO
When booting the stick there is no more error message now. But to be exact, there is absolutely no message appearing.
The only thing I see is a blinking cursor.
So what am I doing wrong?
PS: not a native speaker so sorry for my English.
