Requirements

Posted: August 1, 2006 in OSx86 Install

In order to be able to use this guide you will need the following requirements:

Hardware:
Intel Pentium 4 Processor
256 MB of RAM or more
SSE2 or SSE3 support
DVD drive

Software:
Windows XP installed
Enough free space on your HD to install Mac (at least 6GBs)
Partition Magic 8 (to shrink existing partition)
JaS Mac OS X 10.4.6 (burned DVD)

Other:
About 20 minutes* to 1 hour of free time
A backup of your files just in case

* The install of Mac OS X on my Tablet PC took like 14 minutes last time by skipping the DVD check that is performed after the ‘Install’ button is clicked

Here are my PC specifications:



Gateway Tablet PC (M280E) with Windows XP Tablet 2005
Intel Pentium M Processor 740 (1.73GHz, 533MHz FSB, 2MB L2, supports MMX SSE SSE2)
Intel 915GM graphics
Integrated Intel Wireless 2200 b/g
512MB 533MHz DDR2 SDRAM (2-256MB modules)
60GB 5400rpm Serial ATA hard drive
24x/10x/24x CD-RW / 8x DVD Combo Drive
