    Just wondering how easy it would be to get Snow Leopard running on my Acer Revo?

    Acer Aspire Revo 3610 Specifications:

    • Atom N330 Processor (1.6GHz Dual Core)
    • NVidia ION Chipset
    • 250gb HDD (2.5” 5400rpm SATA II)
    • 2gb Memory (4GB Max)
    • 802.11 b/g Wireless
    • 1Gbit wired LAN
    • 6x USB 2.0, e-SATA, VGA, HDMI, Audio jacks, 1x Mini PCI-e Slot, Card Reader
    I know the Wireless Card is not compatible but I can change that, I also believe audio over HDMI will not work. The System does not have an Optical Drive but I have an external USB one.

    I would like to to be as Vanilla as possible but know its not 100% possible due to the fact I have an Atom CPU.

    Am I able to boot from a Vanilla Snow Leopard Disc to Install or do I need to do some patching first? I am currently running Windows 7.

    Any info or advice would be amazing.

    Thanks in Advance :)

    Yes read that a few weeks ago but doesn't mean allot to me.

    There seems to be tutorials on that site for every setup but the revo.

    I have also posted on 3 different Hackintosh forums with no reply.

    Maybe you need to do it yourself? Or at least try?
    And THEN (when you get stuck on something) ask more precise question

    Or pay somebody to do it for you

    It is generally easy to install on most modern intel processor laptops. The head scratching starts when you're trying to find the right kext for your particular video, audio, wifi card etc. In most cases you won't get a complete working solution. Saying that, my inspiron 1520 is all working but did take some lengthy researching. Solutions are out there it's just finding it.

    Just realised, Acer revo isn't a laptop is it? dunno what i was thinking :eek:
