OSX not a chance, Windows you could, but why would you want to? From the specs i found it only has a 16GB hard drive, which is enough for windows 7 and a few word documents, it just becomes an oversized netbook and would be pretty slow with windows.

To play sim ant and some old 16 bit game's I got. I have a I7 pc with a 64 bit so no 16 bit. I saw a vid of mac os on a Cr-48, but it's likely fake.

I know some about pc's, but the CR-48 is an odd one.

Windows 7 actually runs quite well on this computer. There's about 6-7 GB of space left on the SSD after a normal 32-bit install.

Mac OS X installs and runs, but video performance is currently an issue. A discussion of how to install OS X is here:

Can you put the guide on your post. I am not a link fan. 6-7 GB of space is good.

It would be difficult to post the guide here because it contains links to firmware and drivers that would be tedious to recreate.

There's a lot about the Cr-48 at http://cr48.wikispaces.com/ I think you'll be happy if you check out the link.

If anything I would likely put window's on it over osx. I think I would like to put xp or win 7 32 on it over doing vm. I did try doing that when I got the win 7 beta, but it used alot of ram.(2-3GB) It is some thing I will likely do one day, when I do my next upgrade.

P.S I miss the days when my now old rts game's would work right. (Most work in win 7 64, but can't do all the thing's they used to. I was playing C&C zero and could not beat it, becuase it would die when the USA fired it's lazer at this one spot and I had to play it in a fast rush to stop the USA from fring it's lazer. This is funney now that I think about it, but still.)
