    Talking Will this method work? (retail OSX Disk) :)

    Hi,

    I have a Sony Vaio NW. I intend to install Snow Leopard on it using a retail SL Disk and EmpireEfi. I currently have Windows 7 installed, and want to dual boot with SL.

    Does this sound like it will work? Can you suggest a better way? Can you foresee any issues?

    Thanks!

    yes, your vaio is all fine with it.
    All you need is the right boot file. and some kexts of course.

    Great!

    What boot.ini file? What do I do with it?


    Could you link some appropriate kexts for me?

    Thanks!

    not boot.ini but boot file that match the kernel and cpu of your choice.

    just try any tutorial, and come back here if you stuck, hopely someone will reply...

    I can't find any reference to a boot file for my laptop?

    I've got an intel core 2 duo t6600.

    I'm not sure what you mean by kernel.. I'm using a retail OSX disk?
