awesome! thank you so much for the help.

the issue was that when I first edited the com.apple.Boot.plist it didn't save the "cpus=1" change...

followed those steps and it's working fine!

EDIT: Is there anyway to get it to see the battery? It only shows an icon with an X through it over here...


Are you using Paul's kext for the battery meter? ACPIBattery.kext ?

Coz mine dont have this since Paul's ACPIBattery.kext will kill my shutdown features so i never installed the battery kext

Actually you're right, is there a way to uninstall a kext? Since now when I try to shut down I get a warning?

EDIT: Figured it out.

Things seem to be working well now...

Hello, I have just recently purchased an Acer Aspire One A110, and I want to install OS X on it, I'm not completely green when it comes to hackingtoshes, but it's been a while since.

I'm alright with everything apart from the wireless card, I've read it is possible to "rebrand" the wifi card so it works with the vanilla leopard kernel, but all the reports are methods for the various different types of cards available and none of them are specific enough for me to confidently try it.

Has anyone with more of a clue managed to do this for the AAO? The card in mine is indentified under Windows as an Atheros 5007EG.

Is it just a lot easier to switch out the wireless card? and if so, is there one that people specifically recommend for the AAO?

I've read so many posts at this point I'm just completely confused!

Cheers

i recommend the Dell 1390 card. you can get em for about $15 total on ebay. this seems to be the most popular and successful card

I tried pauls battery kext and successfully got the battery meter to show up, it just acts like I have no battery plugged in. Anyone have any ideas? How would I go about deleting that?


Also I got my audio to auto switch by following a guide on aspireoneusers.

Hi!

If you are like me the proud owner of the NEW Aspire ONE 150 GZ5, 1,6Ghz, 120GB 1,5GB, White, this is not a tutorial, its merely an addition....
I also exchanged the Atheros Wireless card for a BCM94311 so that there is no issues with wireless(I hear there is a driver for it,not included in my zipfile)


I used Paul's kexts at the start and the autoswitching audio kext but sadly not everything worked well. The autoswitch kext did not include the internalMIC working on this model and for me using Skype was important!


I decided to redo the machine.
I used iDeneb "iDeneb_v1.3_10.5.5_ISO" to do the initial install, Chameleon_V_1.0.11 to make it bootable and patched the kexts from my zipfile to make it fully working. This includes full graphic startup of the install including sound, which is always a good sign, Audio OUT, Internal Speaker switch, and InternalMIC! Resolution runs at full and the external monitor supports 1680x1050x32, with rotation, mirror and autoplug!
I like using AppleDecrypt instead of dsmos but that would be your choice! Also I did not compile ANY of the kexts, they are merely an compilation of already existing work, EXCEPT for the Audio kexts this is the Autoswitching kext referred to in some of the previous post, I only edited it to recognize the InternalMIC!


Hope it helps people:

let me make sure i understand. i can use your kext's to activate these features WITHOUT having to reinstall with ideneb? also, do i have to remove any prior kexts? or just install and rock it?

either way, nice work! i was missing that mic for ichat

Yes, iDeneb 10.5.5 (9.5 Vanilla w/ cpus=1 fix) install worked great for me.. I had to use Harbot's tutorial for fixes for the Audio (no internal mic), About and Video..Batterymeter works out of the box on this..

A friend has purchased his A150 and I'll be Hacking his soon with iDeneb..

SticMac, if u'r still around, what method did you use to install your kext-pack? Did you inject them at the prompt or use kexthelper to overwrite them all?

Thanks for your help and the kext compilation..Awesome

Initially to make sure everything worked I installed them one by one! After I was sure these kexts were fine and would do no damage(Slinger2G) Is redid a complete installation, and used Kexthelper to install the lot!
This does NOT include the PowerManagement.bundle in the zipfile, you have to do that manually in a separate place, but you should know that! :)

hey dead_evangel, i can help you out. what stage are you at?


Thanks dude!!!

Here is my story:

After a lot of attemps i just recently installed Leopard in partition 1 using Kaliway 10.5.2 (i'm still fixing some issues... ethernet, audio...) i installed it using GUID partition scheme because MBR didn't work for me, so now i got Leopard 10.5.5, installed Office, moved my files and music... but now i'm wondering how to install Win XP in the other partition... i've been searching but i haven't found a how to... i've only found tutorials from the begining using MBR... and other tutorials but only for vista...

the point here is to install WinXP without having to reinstall everything from the begining, unless i have to...
