    Default How to install Leopard on Dell XPS 420

    Heya!

    First post, but i've been getting alot of my info from this site.

    Installed Mac OSX on my XPS 420 (Specs at the bottom) and i am proud to say i have EVERYTHING fully working!

    Here's what i did:

    1) Installed Kalyway 10.5.2 with no graphics drivers selected and did the graphics movevideodrivers fix on boot up

    2) downloaded lastExile's 2600xt installer right here: ATI Radeon HD pkg installers 10.5.x (Current 10.5.6) - InsanelyMac Forum
    he also has alot of good ati drivers which install without you having to edit plist's

    2b) also check out ATI Radeon HD pkg installers 10.5.x (Current 10.5.6) - InsanelyMac Forum if you want to try and install more stable natit drivers.

    3) found and downloaded the much eluded Intel82566MM.kext, which should be easy to find now. Installed that using kext helper b7 (just cus everytime i installed kexts i got errors)

    4) found and downloaded AppleHDAPatcher v1.20 from a forum that came with my Sigmatel codec and did the "Drag codec onto the patcher"
    (note: audio resets or restart, so not TOTALLY stable lol)

    5) smiled

    Hope this helps!

    System Specs:

    Q6600 Intel Core 2 Quad
    4gb ram 4x1gb
    Ati HD 2600xt 256mb
    Built in Audio and Network!!!

    hey sparo,

    i'm completely new to i86/hackintoshes but i'm currently considering picking up an xps 420 on craigslist for a hackintosh machine and i was wondering how much work/how difficult it actually is to install snow leopard on this machine and what extra stuff i would have to buy?


    i know you wrote up a nice tutorial right here but some of these steps dont mean anything to me haha.

    thanks!

    These instructions are interesting, but don't help me too much either. Can anyone post a step-by-step guide for installing OS X to the Dell XPS 420?
