Hey everyone!


I want to hackintosh my Dell XPS m1330


I already know its compatible, (The only real downfall is a kernal panic on shutdown, or restart.. or so i've heard)


the reason i come here is because this is all I have to hackintosh


A USB Stick 2GB


A 8GB SD Card


A DVD W/ OSX Snow Leopard (Bought from Apple).


How would i go about Hackintoshing this system?


I have plenty of space on my HDD if I would need to create partitions


I also currently have access to a Imac G4 (If that helps any.. XD)


XPS M1330 Specs:


CPU: Core 2 DUO (T5250 @1.5GHz)


GPU: Intel 965m Chipset (358mb)


HDD: 452 GB


Current OS: Windows 8.1 (I'd like to duel boot if possible, but if not, i'm okay with that, i'll just upload all the files I need/want to mediafire, or drop box)




Reason I want to hackinstosh:


I'm a music producer in the genre of Hip-Hop, software (DAW) works great on Mac OSX.


Please reply ASAP:)

DUDE, the whole point of this post was to find a way to NOT use a CD, like for real man?
If you knew enough already, you'd probably realize how to make a USB from iBoot.

But I'm assuming you are a novice.

When you're just now learning, you should plan to use the guides as written. Expecting someone to write a custom guide for your wishes should probably not be expected.

Blank CD/DVDs are very inexpensive.

I understand that, and I have hackintoshed before, I'm just wanting too know if creating a bootable USB would be the same as making a bootable SD, since my USB is only 2GB, which im 90% sure isnt enough.

Most laptops will not boot OS X via SD card anyway, due to lack of drivers for the card reader.

You could certainly create a bootable USB modeled after iBoot in only 2gb.
