Dell Latitude D630 Hackint0sh 10.5.2


For all the techs in training out there, when I heard that I can run OS X on a PC I said, “Challenge accepted!” 🙂


The first Hackint0sh I was able to successfully function as a Hackintosh was a Dell Latitude D630 using the Kalyway 10.5.2 DVD.


Dell Latitude D630

Boot with Kalyway_10.5.2_DVD_Intel_Amd

  • Restart your computer and hold down the F2 key to enter BIOS settings.
  • Change your BIOS settings to comply with Apple standards.
  • Restart your computer holding the F12 key and boot from CD.
  • When prompted, hit the F8 key to enter startup options and type in –v noapic cpus=2 and hit enter.
  • The length of time generally depends on your system configuration and how much RAM you have. The more RAM the better 😀


These should help:

Apple Load Screen


Choose your Language (I chose English for the install)


Load Screen


Install Welcome Screen (This is where things get just a bit tricky)


  • The break-dancer image was added by Kalyway and if you click on more options, you can learn more.
    • Click on Utilities at the top of the screen in the menu bar
    • Go to Disk Utilities
    • Choose the main hard drive
    • Click the Erase tab


    • Click on the volume format drop down menu and choose OS Extended Journaled
    • Name the partition whatever you like, I called mine haxint0sh just for the hell of it


    • DON’T FORGET to click on the options button and chose GUID Partition then go for it


  • Once partitioned, exit out by clicking the red X button and it should take you back to installation screen
  • Choose “Continue” and you will be shown the Agreement page
    • Agree
  • You will be shown the available options for drives to install on, you should see the one you just partitioned.


  • If you don’t see one, it’s ok, you can go back to the Disk Utility and reconfigure
  • After you click continue and go to the Summary page WAIT!!!
    • You MUST CUSTOMIZE!! If you don’t the install will not properly function
    • Click on the Customize button and make the choices you require based on your specific hardware.
      • If the first install doesn’t work, you probably need to go back and modify the customization options

    • Click Done and then Install


    • Voila!! The installer will primarily check your disk, you can skip the process but I recommend you let it do its thing. Once inspected, the disk won’t need to be inspected again for additional installs.


    • Once you see a screen with a green checkmark, you did it!! OS X has been installed on your computer.
    • You’ll see a fancy video saying welcome in several languages

    and then be prompted to set up the basics.


    • Follow all the prompts
    • Add your info if you prefer
    • CONGRATS! You are now running OS X on your PC!!
