I'm trying to use OSX86 on my Intel based machine. THe OS i have is Feodora-9 Sulphur.

I read that the processor should support SSe2 or SSe3 for OSX86 compatibility.

This is what my cpuinfo is:

Can you please let me know if it suits it:

[root@localhost ~]# cat /proc/cpuinfo

No, it does not have VT-X.

Specs for a E5200: http://processorfinder.intel.com/details.aspx?sSpec=SLAY7 If it did, then under the Supported Features table would be "Intel® Virtualization Technology".

I don't know whether the lack of VT-X is causing problems with running OS X in a VM, but it's notoriously tricky to get going even with VT-X support.
