Dell Inspiron 560 (E5800, Intel G43, GF 8600GT, 3GB RAM, 160GB HDD)

Recommended Posts

My low-specs rig is capable of running Apple Mac OS X 10.8.5, and possibly capable of running Mavericks and Yosemite as well.  I am currently dual-booting between Mountain Lion and Windows 8.1.

 

DETAILED SPECS
 

Brand: Dell Inspiron 560 (late 2009, bought on 2011)

Motherboard: Dell-branded Motherboard with Intel G43 Chipset

Processor: Intel Pentium Dual Core (not D) E5800, 3.2 Ghz

RAM: 3GB DDR3

Graphics: Galaxy GeForce 8600GT 256MB 128-bit

HDD: 160GB (40GB for ML, 120GB for Windows 8.1)

 

INSTALLATION

Just followed the steps written on the Installation Guide on this website.  Never had to use MultiBeast as the Kexts that I need was already provided by the ML Niresh Distro.  Though, I had an issue with the Bootloader.  My monitor cannot handle the high resolution setting of the Bootloader, so I have to download the Chameleon Wizard and reduce the Bootloader's resolution to 1280x1024.  I also had a hard time on dual booting.  I also used Chameleon Wizard to fix that.
