The SN Joined Jan 15, Messages 2, If you're unfamiliar, drivers are pieces of software that tell the operating system how to use the hardware it's presented with say, a graphics card, a sound card, or even external devices such as a game controller or webcam.
Well, Mac OS X doesn't use drivers, but the principle is the same. It needs to know how to properly use the hardware in your computer. This is where kext files come in. Kext is short for Kernel Extension. It basically is the OS X equivalent of drivers. After installing OS X you'll need to hunt down the proper kexts for your system. Other times, you'll have to Google search for them.
How to Install Mac OS X (Tiger, Leopard, or Snow Leopard) on a PC
This is a good time to have another computer on hand, or to boot back to Windows. The reason for this is because since OS X doesn't know the hardware in your computer, it might not be able to connect to the internet. Anyway, just search "mac os x version model of hardware you want kext. Since Apple only makes kexts for the hardware they support, all the kexts for unsupported hardware must be made by dedicated programmers. I'd just like to make it clear that suggestions WILL be accepted, and credit will be given to any person who writes me a suggestion.

I have a windows laptop, i want to run osx and windows simultaneously , just like we run windows and ubuntu simultaneously, Is it possible? I have apple macbook but running on windows 7 and I want to install Mac is lleopa Thanks John. I haven't tried it yet as the main problem is the wireless network doesn't work. Not having a wired connection would be a problem. I've searched through many Hackintosh articles but found none for my specific older Elitebook. Have you had any problems withthe wifi on the newer models? Or has there been any research done as to why the wifi wouldn't work?
