Greetings,
I am installing Mac OS X on my Satellite A205-S7464. What distribution would you most strongly suggest? In searching around it seems that Leo4all and Kalyway are most often suggested, though I don't know if these distributions are still in development.
I've tried iATKOS v7 a few times and it locks up at the installing step with a few different settings that I've tried.
Also, you could see my related post in "Laptops/Netbooks" (I think that cross-posting is discouraged).

Thanks,
Jamoosh

I would install Snow Leopard OSX Universal 3.4 Golden master or an update of that distro.( I can give you the directions on how to get that distro later.) Works on mine But has some USB and WIFI issues I am working on those though, The WIFI problem is related to the USB problems though, It integrated USB WIFI. But as I said I think I have found the solution. Will keep ya post dude/dudette.

Hello!

I was trying to install various OSXes on my laptop but none of them worked

First of all my tech specs:
Toshiba Satellite A300 20N

CPU Type: Mobile DualCore Intel Core 2 Duo T6400, 2000 MHz (10 x 200)
Motherboard Chipset: Intel Cantiga GM45
Video Adapter: ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3400 Series (256 MB)
IDE Controller: Standard AHCI 1.0 Serial ATA Controller

So, I tried to Install iAtkos v7, iDeneb 10.5.7, iPC 10.5.6 and SnowOSX_Universal_10.6(432)GM-v3.5. Only the last one worked. A kind of. There was no sound, no Internet, USBs didn't work. I could only admire the fabulous OSX Desktop but I want more Do you have any suggestions what should I do?

Thank you!!!

Ok, You got one thing strait, The Snow OSX Universal image. To get you sound working use "VoodooHDA.kext" in the AT-Tools driver file. Then Use the DSDT Patcher (you can get it here http://http://pcwizcomputer.com/inde...=150&Itemid=48 )

This may get the USB working , Then since the WIFI is integrated into the USB interface if you find the appropriate driver/.kext file, Then it should all be good.
