i have been struggling with installing osx. i can't get past the first step!!
ddmac does not work for me at all. i have tried everything in the guides.
i am trying to install osx off a usb hard drive. it is not a usb stick. i am trying to save the iso image onto the usb hard drive(which has 2 partitions- one 15gb for iso and the rest unallocated)
why is this not working? does it specifically have to be a 8gb usb flash drive.
the usb hard drive is brand new and capacity is 400gb.
what am i doing that is wrong.
please help; reading these guides i thought it was gonna be quite easy but i have been at this for the past 4 hrs and i have not been able to get ddmac to create the iatkos v7 on the usb drive.

I find it easiest to install iatkos from a dvd using a usb dvd drive.

but there are people that say that u can get all sorts of problems from burning iatkos onto dvd and may need to do it a few times.

i just don't understand why ddmac is not working at all
thanks for your comments anyway

i can't seem to get my wireless to work though. it is able to identify the network but when i put my wep network password it says connection failed.
not sure what is going on?
i also need to sort out sound and sleep; as i know that others have them working.
any advice re what might be going on with the wireless ?
what do i need to do to get sound and sleep to work. i have followed what has been written about these issues but still seem to be having problems

AeroWV - are you doing this part of the tutorial?

Plug in your now bootable OS X Flash Drive, USB DVD, or USB HDD (depend on what medium your using for the install) Turn on the mini and press F9. Now select the Flash Drive, USB DVD, or USB HDD you want to install from and keep pressing F8 and hit enter. If you do not keep pressing F8 you will white screen with an apple logo and then the system will reboot so make sure you keep pressing F8 when booting off of your drive! you should see a command line with boot:

Basically after you choose where to install iatkos from keep pressing F8. ;)

7. After erasing is complete, exit the disk utility
8. Now click next and select your newly erased hard drive as the destination.

Hi aboshi I have an hpmini 1030CA and trying to follow your guide . however iatkos installer uses a default resolution which makes it impossoble to view the button part of the screen, and right after step 7 , when I go back to the welcome screen i can't click Next. ( the button is located much lower and the mouse doesn't reach it)

at darwin boot when i do ?video the only avilable resolution is the default one. In my bios I can't change or set the resolution either, and even the VGA cable doesn't work.
I am really stock.

is there a way to change the resolution before the install using terminal commandS?

thanks

managed to get everything working except mic. then i installed ilife, iwork and SwithResX and the system appears to boot but after the spinning cirlce at the apple logo i get a black screen.(i think this is a resolution issue)
the only way i found to get into the o/s is after doing the following:
-s
/sbin/fsck -fy
/sbin/mount -uw /
cd System/Library and press enter
rm -r Extensions.mkext and press enter
cd Extensions and press enter
rm -r AppleIntelGMA*.* and press enter
rm -r AppleIntelIntergrated*.* press tab and it will fill in the rest for you and press enter
shutdown -r now

i get access but with the resiolution at 800x600.
I think i have unistalled ilife and SwitchResX.
i have unistalled and reinstalled the video kexts but without success.(although i am not sure if that is the case; i might have the old kexts still installed- how do i check? should the new kext installation not overwrite existing kexts??)
What should i do to get the resolution working again? i am not too bothered about sleep issue. my wifi still works!
thanks in advance

Hey guys, I have been following this thread and I recently got a HP Mini 110-1000 (says exactly that on the bottom of mine) with 2GB ram, 16GB A-DATA SSD and the N280 processor.

I successfully followed the iDeneb 1.3 guide but had issues getting the cpus=2 tag to work, it would break my install and nothing seemed to be right like it was in the guide that I followed. Despite that I got myself a copy of iAtkos v7 to try out this week and hopefully get that running smoothly. Has anyone had any luck with my model? It seems I can't find anyone that has the Hp mini 110-1000 anywhere. It's the edition that comes with Mi OS on it.

I'll be following what steps you guys took and hopefully I can get it working correctly, If I do I'll have to host a ghost image torrent of it for you guys to try on your machines once I get everything working correctly (I am expecting a lot at huh?)

Thanks for the information. I just purchased an Hp Mini 1116Nr 1gb/16gb/1.6ghz atom processor. Went thru the steps and was able to get it done within an hour. I used a cruzer gator 8gb flash drive off of xp. the only issue I had was getting the dd program to recognize the flash drive but after reading to unclick the write before choosing the flash drive then checking write. Also when choosing the flash drive as the boot drive at startup, you have to hit f8 really quick. Other than that it was really smooth:)

Well, bad news. I didn't have any luck getting iAtkos v7 on my 110-1000 Hp Mini .. i get all the steps all the way through after install and then go to start single user mode and it gives me the dreaded

MAC framework successfully initialized
using 10485 buffer headers and 4096 cluster IO buffer headers.


I have tried -x and -f and cpus=1

I had successfully installed iDeneb 1.3 on my machine previously but I had this same error when i switched the apple boot plist to show cpus=2 instead of 1 and got stuck into an infinite loop.

I am not sure what this is related to but if anyone has any idea's it would be much appreciated.

This is a complete guide to installing iATKOS v7 if you follow this guide 100% you will have a fully working pretty much out of the box install of OS X 10.5.7 =)
on a side note I have only installed from USB Flash Drive method, but I am sure if you have an external USB DVD you'll be fine also.

You will need to download this package to get the proper video (1024x600) after the install.

and you will need OSXTools from the link below
OSXTools 1.0.150

Introduction
This guide will be for the iATKOS v7 install method.
Before you install OSX it's always a good idea to update your bios. While in XP/Linux, go to the HP website and find your model. Download the Bios update under the drivers/support section. I believe the current one is v11. You won't be able to update your Bios via OSX as far as I know.
First off, you have two options for installing OS X onto your Mini. The USB Drive Method, or using an external optical drive via the USB DVD drive method. I have only installed using the USB Flash Drive method.

Things you will need
1. A HP Mini 1000 series unit with at least 16GB or greater disk space (any model or OS; they all work) (NOTE: Make sure Bios is Version 0.5, won't work if V0.3 is used)
2. An 8GB(or larger) USB drive OR an external USB DVD drive
3. A copy of iATKOS v7 (you can find it in the usual places don't ask me where to get it)
4. Display Fix attached to this guide
5. Optional, but helpful: an additional USB drive to transfer files with

The most important thing you need to do is find a copy of the iATKOS v7 disc image. Take a quick trip to google to find the iAtkos v7 image.
NOTE: you may also find other versions of iATKOS ONLY USE v7 or this will not work.

Creating an iATKOS v7 Install



MAC via USB Drive (you can also use a hackintosh)
1. Open up Disk Utility.app in /Applications/Utilites/
2. Select the drive you will be using in the left hand pane.
3. Click the Partition Select 1 Partition and apply (name the drive OS X Installer)
4. Under "Volume Format" select Mac OS Extended
5. Click Erase
6. Click the "Restore" tab
7. If you havn't already, go to your iATKOS.iso and double click it, or if you have burned the iso to disk already put it in the drive and on the left hand side you will see the dvd drive that is mounted with iATKOS
8. Back in Disk Utility, you should see the iiATKOS.iso in the left pane with another image under it with an apple logo on it, or stated above the dvd drive mounted with your disc.
9. Drag the image to the "Source" location
10. Drag your flash drive you have erased to the "Destination" location.
11. Click Restore
12. After Restore completes open up OSXTools1.0.150 and click Install EFI Run FDisk
13. Make sure you selsect your Flash Drive in the Disk to Use Drop down (it should be named OS X Installer if you labeled it like I started in the above) and in the drop down below Disk to Use you will see EFI to Install, Select PC_EFI v8
14. Click Install EFI
15. You should now have a fully bootable Flash drive ready to install OS X!

I have not used the method posted below (Windows)

Windows via USB Drive (tested in Windows XP)

1. Hook up your external Hard-Drive to your computer. Go to Start and right click on My Computer. Click Manage. On the left side, go to Disk Management.
2. Click on your External Hard-Drive. Then click 'Delete'.THIS WILL DELETE EVERYTHING ON THE EXTERNAL HARD-DRIVE!. Once that is complete, go to Start and right click on My Computer. Click Manage. On the left side, go to Disk Management. Once again, click on your External Hard-Drive.
3. Click on 'Format'. Click next, and make sure you set the partition size to about 6GB.
4. Let it finish, then download the file linked 5 lines below. It is a handy utility for Windows that will help you put iATKOS v7 on an external Hard-Drive. Open the file and click 'ddmac' and English_GUI. On 'ddmac', don't be alarmed if it looks strange (this is why you need the English_GUI).
5. Follow the instructions in the English_GUI on the ddmac. It is pretty straightforward. Click the start button, and let it do its thing. DO NOT CLICK THE DDMAC! I have found that if you click it, it messes up.
6. After that, reboot your mini, and press f9. Select your External Hard-Drive, and hit enter. Mac OSX installer should start.

Link to file mentioned in step 4:

USB DVD via OS X
1. Find your iATKOS.iso and double click on it.
2. Open up Disk Utility. It's under you're utilities folder in your applications folder.
3. Click on your iATKOS.iso in the left pane of drive.
4. Click the "Burn" button on the top of the window.
5. Plug in your usb drive/DVD drive into the mini and reboot.
6. When the HP Logo appears, hit f9
7. Select your USB/DVD drive from the list of boot devices
USB DVD via Windows
1. If you don't have one already, download an ISO burning program. Googling brings up this one:http://www.freeisoburner.com/
2. Select the iDeneb.iso as the source, or open up the iso via your iso burning program.
3. Insert a blank DVD into the drive and burn.
---------------------------------------------------------------

Installing OS X
From this point on, everything on your mini is about to be erased. Say goodbye to XP/Linux Mi or whatever it's called. It's worth it in the end I promise.
If you do not follow my instructions on this next step iATKOS v7 will panic when trying to boot.
Plug in your now bootable OS X Flash Drive, USB DVD, or USB HDD (depend on what medium your using for the install) Turn on the mini and press F9. Now select the Flash Drive, USB DVD, or USB HDD you want to install from and keep pressing F8 and hit enter. If you do not keep pressing F8 you will white screen with an apple logo and then the system will reboot so make sure you keep pressing F8 when booting off of your drive! you should see a command line with boot:
now at the command line with boot: type cpus=1
it should look like this boot: cpus=1
then hit enter and you should boot into the OS X installer pretty fast if your installing from a flash drive. You can also use the -v command before cpus=1 this will show you any messages if you need to figure out what went wrong (if anything went wrong) Example: boot: -v cpus=1
If you get a panic and the system reboots or your stuck at a white screen with a circle with a slash going through it, just reboot and try again. I would recommend using the Flash Drive install method! I have had issues with external DVD drives during installs of OS X.

1. The installer will now begin. Wait at the apple logo until a language selection screen is shown. Select your language and hit next.
2. Go to the top of the screen where it says utilities. From this menu select "Disk Utility"
3. Click on the Mini's Hard drive in the left pane.
4. Click on the "erase" tab
5. Under Volume format, select Mac OS Extended
6. Click Erase
(NOTE: If you plan on ever dual booting or wanting partitions on your drive, now is the time to do it. You wont be able to partition/resize your drive after the install. If you would like to dual boot, go to the partition tab on you HD, and click the + button. Add a partition any size you like and assign it as "Free Space". You can format it later)
7. After erasing is complete, exit the disk utility
8. Now click next and select your newly erased hard drive as the destination.
9.On the next screen you will see an option at the bottom that says "customize". Click on it and apply the following patches:
a. Expand "x86 patches" and select: OHR
b. Expand "Driver" Expand "System" Expand SATA/IDE check Intel SATA/IDE Close "System"
c. With "Driver" still expanded check USB
e. Expand PS/2 Mouse/Keyboard check Voodoo PS/2 Driver With Trackpad
d. With "Driver" still expanded check Laptop Battery, and NTFS - 3G
f. Expand "Network" Expand "Wireless" check Broadcom BCM43xx

That's it you can now continue with the installation.

Install will take about 15 mins. your computer will reboot when the install is finished.
Once the install is finished you will have a nice new shinny boot screen =) this is chameleon 2.1 RC you should see the Chameleon on top =)
At this point everything will work out of the box but the screen will be stuck in 800x600 with no selection for other resolutions yet so we will fix this in advance (or at least prepare to install proper video drivers)

You can also boot into OS X at this time first if you want to setup your account first then follow the steps below

So now that OS X is installed when the mini reboots and you see the Chameleon boot loader. press any key to enter setup.
now type -s you should see boot: -s on the bottom left hand side of the screen, now press enter and it should boot you into single user mode.
with you get the command prompt it will look like this:
:/ root#
now type /sbin/fsck -fy and press enter
after it does its thing type: /sbin/mount -uw / and press enter
don't forget that / after -uw or you will not have write access.

Do Exactly as I say or you will hate life =)
Type: cd System/Library and press enter
Type: rm -r Extensions.mkext and press enter
Type: cd Extensions and press enter
Type: rm -r AppleIntelGMA*.* and press enter
Type: rm -r AppleIntelIntergrated*.* press tab and it will fill in the rest for you and press enter
Type: shutdown -r now
This will remove the kext cache and all of the Intel Graphic drivers because they do not work correctly (stuck at 800x600) and the system should now reboot. If all went well you should be at the screen to enter in all of your info and user account =)

Once you are at the desktop of OS X you can now install the video drivers from the Display Package I put together (I take no credit for the actual Drivers)
here is the link again:

and OSXTools OSXTools 1.0.150

You can download them directly or download them on another computer and put the files on a flash drive, just make sure to copy them to the Desktop to make things easier.
Once you extract The Display Package to the Desktop you should have these folders:
OSXTools1.0.150
First
Second

Now Start OSXTools and click install kexts
browse to the dir First and select all (3) kexts
and click install.
After the kexts instal with will pop up asking to reboot DO NOT REBOOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
if you reboot you will have to go into single user mode again and remove all the files again SO DO NOT REBOOT YET! CLICK CANCEL
Now open the folder Second and click on GMA950.pkg and a setup window will pop up.
click continue, click install put in your password if you have one and proceed. after the install you can now reboot.

Once you reboot you should be back at the OS X desktop but now with working 1024x600 resolution! you can now enable Quartz.

Enable Quartz
To enable Quartz open OSX86 Tools and click the Enable/Disable Quartz GL button. It will tell you the current status. If its disabled, feel free to enable it by clicking the button that says "Enable Quartz GL". after Quartz is enables the system will need to rebooted.

You should now be fully working on OS X 10.5.7
You can also update from the Software Update by click on the apple logo on the top left.
Make Sure you UNCHECK AirPort Utility Software Update or you will be left without a Wireless Connection! if you wind up updating AirPort Utility Software Update you will have to track down the BCM43xx kext and reinstall it. but make life easy and uncheck AirPort Utility Software Update.

I have noticed something about the voodoo sound driver, although you have sound and you can even adjust the sound with the function keys the sound level stays the same, but you can set the sound level in setting/voodooHDA and just set the volume level by sliding the PCM slider. if anyone can figure out a fix for this please post it =)

This is the most foolproof install of OS X 10.5.7 if its not working for you your not following this guide 100% if you have any questions I will try to answer them quickly. It took me quite a while to work out all the kinks of the install to get everything working perfectly so enjoy =)

My install is on a HP Mini 1035nr


~ Aboshi


:P Fantastic Guide, thank you very much. I just want to add that it also works on an ADVENT 4212, however you need the Realtek Driver to get the internal Wireless card working i found it on TPB by searching for Realtek 8187SE. for info, if you cannot remove the Graphcs Kexts on you advent (i managed once) still follow the next part (install OSX Tools etc) after reboot, the screen auto adjusts to 1024 x 600. Fantastic, Thanks
