How to install Leopard on Dell XPS 420
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!
