Imagine the amazement on the faces of all your friends when you boot OS X on your PC. I’m not sure how useful or complete this would be but it sure would be cool to boot OS X on the Sony U.   You need an OS X CD for this to work but detailed instructions for the install using the free PearPC can be found here.

  1. It actually works really well – in fact, I’ve even install Mac Office into work – works fine (albeit slow).

    More ‘tips’ I found during my install:

  2. Steve, how slow is It? I am seriously considering installing this on the Sony U to have a Mac handheld.

  3. Can you dual boot? Is it worth giving up Windows on the U James?

    Also: how would you aquire the drivers (like for the touchscreen, all the buttons and such) to work under the Mac OS?

    Just curious… :D

  4. If you do install it on the U, I want pictures pictures pictures! In fact, I want your address … heh-heh.

  5. I would dual boot it or not do it. I don’t think there are touch screen drivers for it but it would still be useful without it since the U has such good controls. Besides, it’s to see if it can be done. :)

  6. It can be done on a — yeaaagh! — XboX –

  7. It’s slow. I have a G4/450, and it’s slower than that. But, it works. The install took several hours, I cant get networking working, and typing seems to go in slow motion.

    But, it’s fun to play around with. :)

  8. Are you running it on a U?!!?

  9. I would like to know how well it performs on an athlon64 based machine with 512k of ram? If it can come close to a g4 at 700 to 800mhz its really worth it.

  10. I think it will get EXTREMELY slow if you have just 512K of RAM, lol
