The first methods of installing Mac OS X 10.6.2 appear on Atom netbooks

End of the line for Hackintoshes on netbooks? Mac OS X 10.6.2 is really incompatible with Atom processors

This is starting to get confusing: first, a rumor that Apple is killing support for Atom processors in its system catches the attention of many Hackintosh netbook users; later, a Tumblr user can show that one of the builds update are still compatible. And now, the same guy comes to the public again, to clarify that his previous ad was based on false information.

The screenshot of a netbook running Mac OS X 10.6.2 that we published a few days ago was manipulated to appear to be from a machine running the update: the version of kernel it was true, but whoever edited the image forgot to change its release date. Comparing it to a Terminal window without any changes, it is clear that version 10.2.0 was released on October 16, and not on July 31, as it showed.

The person responsible for these surveys got reports from more sources, who tested an update to the most recent test edition of the second Snow Leopard update on Atom machines, with some previous version of it installed. No success was reported and the machines finished the installation process as in the video above, without being able to get past the gray apple screen.

Taking into account that the last beta of Mac OS X 10.6.2 did not bring any known problems for developers (that is, it can leave at any time), quite capable that the owners of Hackintosh netbooks will have reason to be really sad in the next days . I emphasize again that all the tests carried out were already done with the build 10C540, launched a few days ago and which can be considered even the final candidate.
