This is my first post at the forum and as this fact implies; I am a bit of a novice regarding hackintosh'es etc. This said, I am not too new on computers so hopefully I will be able to follow the guide and create the netbook of my dreams
I am the happy owner of a MSI Wind U100 and the unhappy owner of Windows XP... The guide made by Paul is very thorough and the many posts on this thread (and many hours of reading) has encouraged me to try to install OS X on my Wind. As I am new to this non-conventional use of PC's (if that exp
ression covers it) I have a few questions that I hope you guys can answer before I throw myself into the deep water. I know that many of the subjects has been touched earlier in the thread, but I haven't found a spot on answer to the following questions.
In the guide
Paul says that one should burn "Kalyway 10.5.2" onto a CD and then the "Kalyway 10.5.3 upgrader" for later use after installing OS X from the "Kalyway 10.5.2"-CD. I have on the internet seen both Kalyway 10.5.4 and 10.5.5. My question is, whether I should use these newer editions of Kalyway or if I should stick to the ones mentioned in the guide? (as you might realise, I have only little idea about the actual differences between the editions...)
My second question
regards the replacement of the original WiFi card in the MSI Wind.
I know little regarding replacing hardware in a laptop why I would love be more certain regarding which WiFi card to buy. From Paul's guide the card could be a "Dell 1490 Broadcom based card". Other places in the threat I have seen mentioned that a 1390 card works as well - and that this version even might be a work-around the problem with the "stand-off" that messes with the 1490 WiFi card.
My questions is which card I should buy and if I can buy cards from other manufaturers than Dell? I am not sure what the "1390" and "1490" means nor what the "broadcom based" means?
I hope the above is understandable and that you will take a few minutes to answer my questions although they are somewhat rookie-like... I know!
I love computers and I would love to be able to create an OS X running netbook.
