post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 

Could it be real??

Then we have it here. To the novel MSI Wind running Kalyway 10.5.2 without any kind of problem. I have left to fit some flecos, like the resolution, and the card of network wireless but podia not to stop postear these photos that certainly interest to but of one. The Ethernet and the Bluetooth work “out-of-the-box†so I wait for much of this small netbook

Well don't all new MSI motherboards use EMI instead of a BIOS?


I believe Macs have been using EMI for years, so that Wind should be able to run OSX natively, no emulation.

Looks cool

"Kalyway 10.5.2" It's running Hackintosh people.

No BIOS emulation, but aren't there other things that need to be accounted for to trick OSX into thinking it's running on "apple brand" hardware?

Everyone has known that we can easily run OSX on generic hardware since deadmoo image first came out. However, this is still news because it demonstrates that OSX can even be run on a super cheap computer like this MSI. Perhaps it will even inspire some people to pick one of these up instead of a Macbook.
