    For you hackintosh gurus, is it possible to install osx on my old Thinkpad x22? I've searched all over google and cant seem to find a solid answer. I hope I posted this in the correct forum. I have a MBP already and would love to have this lightweight thinkpad to carry around with osx on it. Thanks again!

    Likely to be more trouble than it's worth on a machine that old.

    So your answer is, "Probably not."

    Not possible, it needs minimum SSE2 to run natively.

    Windows XP will work.
    Windows 98se will work a dream. That's what I'd put on it.

    98se is useless.

    I had the same machine, XP works great on it. Hackintosh won't happen without SSE2, and even so, Leopard and Snow Leopard really really hate machines/chipsets that are older.

    With Firefox 2.x and a wireless PCMCIA wireless card, makes make quite a neat netbook under Windows 98se. I used to have one. Ran like a dream.
