Question about MSI Wind UmNotebook

Msi wind u90 mother board operating system

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.

Cheers

I will ask if i can download windows 7 on linux acer aspire 4738?there will be a problem?


there won't be any problem as far as Windows and Linux, but this is a fairly involved procedure.You'll first need to create a Windows partition on your hard disk in NTFS file system format. Otherwise,Windows might overwrite / erase your linux installation when Windows 7 installs.
make the windows partition the "Primary" or "Boot" partition.
When Windows 7 installs, it may ask if you want to delete the linux partition.Answer "NO" to this.
The next concern is which operating system will boot by default,Windows or Linux.
I had no problem doing this with Windows Vista, and whe Vista booted,it listed a choice of operating systems to boot,and I would select either Windows Vista or Ubuntu Linux.

How to reformat my MSI notebook?


You need to have an valid Operating System installer CD/DVD. This could be a Windows or Linux installer or whatever Operating System that you prefer.

  1. Turn your laptop on.
  2. Open the CD drive and load the CD Installer.
  3. Reset your laptop to manually reboot it. If you loaded the CD fast, this step is no longer required.
  4. The setup program will then load. Follow the onscreen procedure.
  5. At the point of selecting the hard disk drive, choose "Delete Partitions" to completely remove all data.
  6. After deleting partitions, create new partitions for your hard disk. You can choose to divide your hard disk capacity into 2 or more partitions depending on your requirements.
  7. Format the root partition now (Drive C) to continue the installation.

Install xp vista linux


If you're trying to install all three operating systems onto the same partition it's creating a conflict, more than likely between Vista and linux. XP and Vista are similar enough and recognize each other, putting them in the same partition is ok, but try setting up another partition to install the linux to. I'm curious as to why you want or need all three on the same machine?
