If you have a Samsung Series 7 Slate tablet gathering dust in your home or office, or you would simply prefer to try a slightly different OS on it rather than the intended Windows 7. You might be interested to know that a developer has now been able to install and run OS X Lion on his.
The installation of the OS X Lion operating system on the Samsung Series 7 Slate was completed using a Lion UniBeast USB KEY Install method and does still have a few things which still need to be ironed out. Currently the Samsung Series 7 Slate does need to be connected to an external monitor, but is showing some great potential says the developer. Watch the video after the jump to see the Samsung Series 7 Slate in action running Mac OS X Lion.
Display issue explained :
“I connected a mini-HDMI to HDMI cable to the tablet then to a TV screen that I have, as this is my only screen with an HDMI input. The reason for this is during the first try after the Apple boot screen the screen goes blank but I can see that the tablet is still running so I knew it was HD3000 issue so I went out a bought the adaptor cable and we have a working TV screen at full resolution on a 32” Plasma. “
