Hackintosh on dell latitude d420 hanging

Hi, 

 

I've used the installation guide here: http://www.osxlatitude.com/edp/documentation/on my latitude d420 however once it boots and starts the loading process it hangs on the grey apply screen with OSX LATITUDE logo on. Trying with OS X Lion.

 

I also could not find a bootpack for a d420 so tried with a d620.

 

If anyone could help with this installation that would be great thank you.

In a nutshell, D420 has 32bit-only CoreSolo/CoreDuo CPU and is limited to SL. Lion requires 64bit Core2Duo CPU (even though it has to run in 32bit kernel mode on GMA950 systems). Of all D4xx, only the D430 can run Lion, hence no bootpack for D420 other than SL's.

i think it depends on what os you used to make the installer. my hack is not compatible with yosemite as of yet. if you have the snow leopard retail disk image you can use disk utility to restore the disk to the usb then install my hack to the usb with your bootlick. also you need to install chameleon to it after.
