For Installation:
Follow the Steps in the link below, starting with Pre installation, Installation and Post Installation: 

OSX Lion 10.7.2 and Windows 7 in dualboot

Negative OSX Notes:
* Have to boot with -f
* Low brightness during boot, helps to put it to sleep and bright it back
* Wifi does not work, needs to be replaced

Posetive OSX notes:
* Sleep works with sleepenabler
* Graphics are fairly OK in 10.7.2 (10.7.1 graphics blows)
* Feels fast and snappy

Today, on the one year birthday of OSXLatitude, we move into a new age of support for E laptops, this first package will show the way smile.gif

UPDATE - 23th. January
Ok, so it seems that we need to use a older version of chameleon in order to boot correctly -> boot.zip

nice! got a few question thoughs:

- I read a lot of good things about the battery pack of e6220, but how long does it last on average?

- what USB soundcard do you recommend?


Batter...4-6 hours.. depending on how i use it... USB sound card.. i dont think its needed.. fixing the sound on the e6220 is just a matter of time before i have that one fixed also.


Do you have a e6220 now ? (i might have asked this before)

Trying to find a used/second hand one, as I find the 1199 euro at Dell Online excl. VAT, shipping and SSD a pretty steep entry.

The same amount of money buys me a maxed out MacBook Air 13" with SSD, free shipping.


ya.. they dont come cheap, but one thing is sure.. i 1000 times rather have the e6220 and the macbook air.. the MBA is limited in terms of what you can do with it.. (replace memory, cpu, wwan, replace the SSD).. the e6620 is extremely sexy and the keyboard is properly one of the best that i have tried...
