    Hi, i have a laptop with a core duo processor and would like to give this a go. Is it applicable to both snow leopard and leopard that it requires a more up to date processor (Core 2 Duo for example) to run?

    Thanks

    This should be very popular as it makes it possible for almost anyone to install SL on a PC. There's a store a few blocks from me doing exactly that. They will either convert your existing PC, if possible, or sell you a new one with OSX already installed. I'll bet they jump on this.

    I'm tempted to do this myself and enter into competition with them.

    I will try this method and I have some questions:
    1. I have a Core2Duo E8400, Asus P5N-T Deluxe, Asus ENGTX260 GL+, is it ok? and if it is how can I download the drivers?
    2. You specified something about USB Keyboard, should have one? I mean, will I be able to use Mac OS X without one?

      Hi Gopinndn, thx for your post here. I have Dell D630 too(X3100 Video), I have tried more than 2 weeks, but I failed to install it. I have a few questions need to ask you about the installation steps.
      1. What is the setting for D630 BIOS?(I need it details) Besides of AHCI and single core CPU. Because I'm facing PANIC before reach disk utility page. (It is work on install it on VMware)
      2. Why some post said need a real Mac? Putting PC HDD on reall Mac and other Kext package to install before put it back to Dell laptop? <= the problem is I dun have real Mac..
      3. Before installation, what drivers and packaged I need to tick for install?
      4. After done install, what should I do? I cant simply restart it right? Because I tried on my other laptop(Asus Z99e), it can done installation, but after restart(required by Mac installation) it get PANIC.

      Thank and I hope you can help me. Do you mind to gv me ur mail address so I can capture my failure part to you for more detail.
