I was just wondering if anyone has successfully modded the bios to allow booting from the sd card slot.? Obviously we can boot from a usb stick/drive, but there are times where it would be convenient to just boot off sd, maybe a super light linux distro or the like to get quick internet/email access, etc. If you have done this - would love to hear your results, maybe others would be interested too (I didn't see a post on it, but I'm sure many have already considered the idea) Any info? Thanks.

OK! SSD delivered. Now the funny part begins! :)

 

Thank you for pointing me in the right direction (Mountain Lion no go). On this occasion I would like to ask one more time for advice: which flavour of OS X?

 

My goal: do it fairly quickly, save time by not solving impossible problems but just by getting things done.

 

Which flavour should I use?

There are many distros out there to run Mac OS X on a PC hardware. Kalyway, iFail, Leo4all, Jas, iFail, iPC, etc…

Here is a guide using this ditro: http://robaldred.co.uk/2009/06/dell-latitude-d430-osx86-install-guide-using-ipc-ppf5-final/

 

Any suggestions? Please help... :)
