Netbook install

Recommended Posts

Guest InfamousSynergy

Hey y'all, I have a netbook running with 1gb of ram and an 1.6ghz single core atom. XP support has ended and running 7 will really push it so it is on Ubuntu at the moment. I know putting it on mavericks (If it will even install) is pushing it so what do you think my options are. I want to hackintosh and I dont care what version providing it is lion or newer (Mavericks being of choice obviously). What do ya think my options are?

@InfamousSynergy 

First of all to check if it's 64 bit. If not it cannot support anything from 10.7 and above (there are hacks to bypass this but i won't go through all that)

On the contrary if it does have a 64 bit chip, one has to consider the graphics card. Since most netbooks have Intel Graphics Media Accelerators (GMAs) the last of which was supported was by Lion (10.7.x) 

Lion supported the Intel GMA 950 and similar models. Since then there has been no support for Intel GMAs. 

So it is a big gamble installing OSX on a netbook. If the netbook doesn't have a 64-bit architecture, you may only be able to install Snow Leopard or lower versions.

Well, Its a atom so its only 32 (i386) but lion beta 2 and below work on 32. My macbook 1,1 can officially run upto snow leo as it has a core duo which is 32bit although you can push lion beta 2 onto it

@

A beta install and a 1.6 Ghz processor ? Sounds like a recipe for disaster. The challenge will be getting it installed. The beta .dmg will be hard to find and since the method to install Lion was iBoot + xMove and unibeast currently supports no beta .dmgs it will be tricky except if you're using myhack. if you wanted Osx so badly, IMO I would recommend Snow Leopard :)

Pfft, yea. I am not fussed what OS it runs but the speed I am. 7/8 is not doable on 1GB, XP is to old for me and I HATE linux yet chrome OS is to restricted. I guess I will have to just get used to Ubuntu. I use debian at school full time, I have a pi and since I am geeky, I have done linux projects in the past so how hard can it be

@ The Pi is epic. Shows you what a $35 ARM processor can do. As far as OSX goes, mavericks might be a bit to hard for it to handle. Since you're geeky, experiment with the OSX Lion Beta. As i said before installing the .dmg with myhack will likely be your only option. Windows 8 can run fine even with 1GB of RAM AFAIK. A stable OSX install (if you can acheive it) will probably have to be Snow Leopard IMO.

I hate the Pi. I can see why people like it and it is a feat of engineering, granted but I just have no use for it. Coding/python you can do on any pc/mac and it has no use as a media center or server to me :/  Although 7 and 8 will run with 1gb of ram, its horribly slow and even a simple web browser lags. 2 is the actual minimum for 7 in my opinion, for it to be usable at least any ways...  I might experiment with lion beta but again, Its running a gma 950 and 1gb (Stock netbook config) so even 10.5/6 might push it... I guess ubuntu will do.

 

If your interested, it's a LG x110

@ I had a similarly specced laptop w/ the GMA 950 (save the Intel Atom Processor) and it handled 10.5.8 just fine. Think Snow Leopard will run fast enough.

Snow leopard is more optimized than leopard and based on the same thing so essentially 10.6 will run better

I do not think so (Not niresh anyway) but there are boot loader cd's like os86 mod cd and hackboot that just run then you select a retial disk, if not, I am sure there might be an iAtkos or iDeneb/iPC build :)

    • Hello! I wanted to install MacOS High Sierra, but the SSD does not appear in Disk Manager. I have a Samsung Pro 840 250GB. Is there a Driver for Intel Gigabit 82579LM Network LAN for MacOS High Sierra?
    • This is my very first post and have looked around the forums to my question but I wasn't able to find the exact specifics that I need. This is my very first windows/mac dual boot project. I chose to attempt high sierra and I hope I am posting in the correct area. High Sierra seemed to be the newest that is possibly more stable than Mojave so I chose that. I'm reaching out to the more advanced builders and experienced people. I'm currently running Win 10 as of now and bought a separate SSD to install a macOS on. Before I invest time and energy into this. I'm wanting to get the best recommendations on what OS I should choose , if my hardware will be up for the task and my best plan of attack. I'll be honest I'm not ready to bang my head on the keyboard for hours. I've been there and done that.  My hardware was some of the best at its time in 2011 and I'm not 100% confident it will work with a more up to date macOS I'm also concerned about drivers for my GPU.  All input is welcomed   Here are my current specs:   CPU
