Mac OS X installed on Intel’s Sandy Bridge

Good news, everybody—you don’t have to wait for Apple to approve Intel’s new Sandy Bridge processors before you can run Mac OS X on the new CPUs. Intel’s Sandy Bridge CPUs and chipsets are barely out of the gate, but that hasn’t stopped some users from installing Mac OS X Snow Leopard on the new Sandy Bridge LGA Socket-1155.

MacMan and tonymacx86 of the tonymac86x blog have not only installed Mac OS X on the new chipset, but they’ve also uploaded instructions so you can hackintosh away.

The process involves using a “patched non-standard Darwin kernel” to boot the system, and the tonymac86x blog warns that this is not a long-term solution. In other words, it’s not a quick or painless hack. However, for early adopters who want to try it out, the blog has opened a special forum section specifically for Sandy Bridge.
