Vostro A90 - Fresh Intall of SL with No Mac? - 09-14-2009, 03:35 PM
Been trolling for a week or so in preparation of building a Hackintosh to use for iPhone development. Unable to shell out the $$ for the "real thing" for the time being, so trying to do the budget version.
Ordered the SL retail upgrade disk, an 8-gig USB drive & a refurb Vostro with Ubuntu (which I have dual-boot on my desktop and also have installed on many family hardware setups, btw).
My question is: Can I use downloaded TransMac to create the USB image and then proceed as detailed in the excellent guide http://www.mydellmini.com/forum/gene...-official.html? Or do I need a Mac to run the NetbookBootMaker to patch the image?
There is a severe shortage of Mac-availability in my area, and I really would like to make the Hackintosh happen, so any help or advice is greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
P.S.: I really respect the frank discussions related to ethics and I fully intend to buy the full set when finances permit to assuage my own conscience. (Single-mom-on-a-budget)
