Precision m6400

I'd like to get osx up on this laptop. It's a beauuuuutiful piece of hardware, but I can't get the retail method to work. It freezes where it mentions something about PCI.

 

I've tried a whole slew of different boot flags and bios configurations.

 

Nothing seems to work. it gets stuck every time at exactly the same spot.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Don't bother with this. You'll not get too far; no QE/CI. It's because of the HD4500M video, no support (kext).

'looks like you'd be the 1st one here to have that machine under OS X as there's been no word from original user since his initial post. One can only assume he gave up. It would have helped if he provided the whole list of specs...

I may actually stick with the m6400. So I thought I'd post some basic specs and try and get more detailed as a research prior to purchase. The e6400 that I currently have runs ML so amazingly I'm not sure I'll even need the power of the i7.

Nichod, Did you use MyHack to install OSx on this? I'm looking at an M6500 (i7) and considering this as an upgrade to my E6500. Just wondering if you ever went with the M6500 and if there were any issues with install (on either/both)?
