Leopard on a Dell XPS

Hi All,

This may be a silly question?

I have a Dell XPS, Intel Dual-Core (6600 @ 2.4 GHz), 4mb RAM, 750mb nVidia Graphics Card running Vista Ultimate like a dream.
If I was to buy a 2nd hard drive, together with Mac OS X v10.5 Leopard - would there be any problems running it?

the problems you would run into is driver support. If Mac makes drivers for the hardware in the PC you have then it will work but I know dell doesn't support that OS with drivers so you would probably be running an OS with limited abilities.

The OSX85 project currently lists installation notes for Mac OS-X v10.4.x versions on a PC, but not yet for 10.5

Assuming your nVidia card is supported, you should have no problem installing any of these prior versions.   I'm sure 10.5 will be specifically supported soon ... or you may be able to install it by simply following the current guides.

Oops! ... clearly I made a typo :-)   It's the OSX86 project ... not 85 :-)

It is possible Leopard can be very unstable so I would suggest emulating Leopard with PearPC.
