Samsung Series 7 Slate/Tablet Hacked to Run Mac OS X Lion

Samsung’s Series 7 Slate / Tablet for Windows 7, has been hacked to run a Hackintosh version of Mac OS X Lion.

A user on the tonymacx86 forums revealed that he is working on a Samsung Series 7 Slate with Lion UniBeast USB KEY Install method.

The user highlights the tools he has used in the process:

8GB USB KEY, mini-HDMI to HDMI cable/adapter, USB Keyboard and mouse. After you make a UniBeast USB key you have some space still left on it so I made a folder and downloaded MultiBeast 4.1.0: Lion Edition.

Installation method: UniBeast USB KEY http://tonymacx86.blogspot.com/2011/10/unibeast-install-mac-os-x-lion-using.html
