I would like to install SL on thi little beast.



1.8GHz Intel Pentium E2160

Intel q965/q963 express chipset

1Gb DDR2-667 DIMM

Intel 82566DM Gigabit Network Connection

Intel HD Audio

DVD-burner (SATA)



I'll get 4Gb of ram in mid May, about 15.5 but I want OS X now. I have a little problem. My MyHack installer with default Extra doesn't boot without kernelpanic. I used these boot flags: arch=i386 -s -f -v . I've even tried Nawcom&Co legacy kernel for 10.6.3... Even iFailS3 disk doesn't boot. I'm not going to install with iFail...



Someone help me!

That LAN card will be supported with the associated Intel kexts. You'll find it in my Vostro200 bootpack or with a Google search.


Your installation issues may come from that old low-spec Pentium CPU; I'm not sure it's actually supported by vanilla kernels, even though dual core. Why don't you replace it with a Core2Duo instead? You'll easily find a cheap FSB800/1066 LGA775 C2D E6xxx/E7xxxx on the net...
