Your system is not in our list yet, so no bootpack. As such, all the work has to be done and we'll be very happy that you contribute to add the Inspiron 1545 to EDP.
Try to install OS X with myHack + Generic Extra. If that does not work, then browse for the closest match to your machine within the list of supported systems. CPU is not that important (since a given machine can support a wide range of CPUs of a given family, sometimes even several families!), what's critical are things like chipset and graphics card.
If you get to install OS X with myHack + Generic Extra, roll up your sleeves and prepare yourself for the fine-tuning phase, i.e. adding the necessary kexts to support your specific hardware. Start by listing the complete and detailed hardware specs of your machine (CPU, chipset, RAM (Qty, type), HDD (size, type), video (card, model, resolution), networking, etc, etc.). Go look for your model's manual on Dell's web site, it should have a specifications annexe towards the end. Also prepare yourself for probable DSDT patching.
We'll help you along the way, especially with the DSDT patching. Just follow the thread about it, it details the full procedure step by step.
