Good news, everybodyâ€”you donâ€™t have to wait for Apple to approve Intelâ€™s new Sandy Bridge processors before you can run Mac OS X on the new CPUs. Intelâ€™s Sandy Bridge CPUs and chipsets areÂ barely out of the gate, but that hasnâ€™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 theyâ€™ve also uploadedÂ instructions so you can hackintosh away.
The process involves using a â€œpatched non-standard Darwin kernelâ€ to boot the system, and the tonymac86x blog warns that this is not a long-term solution. In other words, itâ€™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.
