Install OSX 10.6 on T61(Is it possible in 2022?)

#1 Post by crackberrypie » Sat Jan 08, 2022 3:10 pm

Hi everyone.
I have an idle thinkpad T61 (Intel GMA X3100 only, without a dedicated graphics card). It has been more than 13 years since I got this laptop. I loved it very much.
However, its performance is not enough for my daily use nowadays. I wish to try some new usages instead of just leaving it alone (maybe a different OS). I remember a few years ago, someone told me he successfully installed Hacintosh on it but I don't know which version he used. Is it still possible to install OSX 10.6 on T61 in 2022? Do the majority of hardware drivers work properly in Hacintosh OSX 10.6 ? (It seems OSX 10.6 was the last version that has Rosetta 1 feature supported for OSX. Perhaps I can run some old PowerPC software as well).
My T61 has Intel Core Duo 2 T8100 processor with 4GB of DDR2 667Mhz RAM. I also replaced the internal hard drive with an SSD. Its WiFi card is Atheros AR5BXB6(a pretty old one which supports 802.11a/b/g only. It does not have support for 802.11n like other advanced models.
I know my question is outdated. I wish any of you could kindly tell me where and what files (drivers, OSX image, instructions etc) I should be looking for.
Thanks for your attention. It is my first time here. Glad to meet you.
