Dell M1210 Hackintosh Intel GMA 950 (not Nvidia)

This was fairly painless procedure: 1 shot did the trick.

LOTS Of googlefu was involved.

  1. Installed ideneb 10.5.6
  2. Screen went black after restart, so followed instructions somewhere to log in to the single user mode (f8 -s on darwin startup), mount the drive mount -uw /, and delete the AppelIntelGMA* files.
  3. Reboot, and we have a crappy looking osx launched.
  4. Now, I enabled root account, and downloaded the intel GMA950 kexts from http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=156261
  5. Reboot, and we have full res.
  6. Sound is not around, and neither is my wireless card (looks like I need to get a different one) but this accomplishes my goal of trying OSX to see if I would like it here for web development.
