    Hey, gang.

    Not sure if this belongs here, sorry if it doesn't.

    My MacBook has seen better days and I'm gonna get a ProBook next year.

    In the meantime, I want to have a back up.

    Is there a patch out there that will allow me to install Snow Leopard on a 32-bit laptop PC? I already have iBoot, but the Dell Latitude D830 I just got only likes 32 bits.

    I want a MAC OSX only laptop...no plans to run Windoze at all, so virtual machine here!

    Any info would be greatly appreciated.

    Snow Leopard runs just fine on 32-bit only computers.

    Hmmm...I get the kernel panic when I try it.

    Maybe you can explain?

    Thanks!

    The lower end first gen Intel Mac Mini and some other early Intell based Macs had 32-bit Core Solos and Duos in them.

    This is the forum for Windows on Mac, not the other way around. ;)

    Check over at www.insanelymac.com or www.hackint0sh.org I'm sure folks there have threads about what you are looking for.
