Question about MSI Wind UmNotebook
I have replaced linux suse with windows xp. I would now like to install osx86 on a partition. I think that is the best for me to do. What are the steps to do this?I have 120 gig hard drive and 512 memory of ram for now but I think I will wait until the warranty is up to install more ram because doing it before voids the warranty. I have 2 ram.
Firstly, allow me to appologise for the long delay. I moved at the beginning of the month and I have been busy with that, and my desktop computer is on the fritz so I have not been online much.
Adding more RAM does not void the warranty. I don't know who told you that but they are misinformed. Installing DIMMs on a notebook requires little more than opening a small compartment on the bottom. It doesn't interfere with the inner workings at all. That is what voids the warranty. Go ahead and upgrade.
The problem you are facing with installing OS X86 on a partition of a Windows drive is that OS X doesn't like that at all. It is recommended to install it on a dedicated drive. It can kill the partition table VERY easily and then it will be reload time. What you CAN do tho is to install it on a USB external drive and use the systems boot menu to choose the drive you want to boot to.
I installed Tiger for X86 once on a partition that had an NTFS partition on it, and it was a real pain, and one time I had to do a repair or something on the HPFS partition and it killed the partition table and I lost a TON of stuff on both the HPFS partition and the NTFS partition. It took days of recovery to get back a small portion of the lost data, and some I never got back. Leopard doesn't like sharing at all on a drive with an NTFS partition. You need to install it on a dedicated drive really.
The other option is to install it in VM Ware but it is a pain and doesn't always work. Do some research on some of the Hackintosh sites. Google OS X86 HCL and you can find a ton of info on there.
