ok, here goes.

i installed it like the guide told me to, and everything went just fine. everything seems to work except for the microphone, camera and ethernet.

then today i upgraded from xp to windows 7 on the other partition, and went from 1 to 2GB ram.
after i installed windows 7 darwin failed to boot, so i reinstalled OSX, and now everything is stuttering.. it's like it locks up every 10'th second or so for a couple of seconds. the ram is just as fast as the old one, and windows 7 is running flawlessly.. any suggestions?

edit: i'm not quite sure why i keep on posting questions here when i usually find the answer within minutes.
i forgot that i tried installing that other atheros kext for some reason, and that was what made osx sluggish, well.. problem solved.


Hey keplerrr, Did you manage to get all the drivers for Windows 7? ie multi-gesture touchpad, bluetooth, sd card reader?

thanks for the guide.

i have the same machine, i'd used iDeneb 1.4, installed and boots up well but wifi (broadcom 802.11 family) isn't working, i guest the tide wasn't in favor with my sail...

i'll try gma 950 patch l8r and maybe iAtkos afterward...wish me luck though.

I wrote a tutorial on the D250 and posted it to the aceraspireoneuser.com forum (scroll down for the revised and much better version)- http://www.aspireone...p...=14&t=16461

I tried posting it here in the genius bar but the mods took it down for some reason D:

I tried your tutorial the updated ver at the bottom...one hang up for me maybe I missed something but I had your D250 folder on a USB drive and after the initial install of iaktos 10.5.7 the usb drives would not mount even if i left them in at boot. Any tips for me on that.

thanks.

Awesome write up on iDeneb v1.4. Question is there a way to get the headphone jack to work? Or did I miss something on the install? Got a AAO d250 netbook.

hey guys, its me again. First off, i am in no way condoning or promoting the use of mac os x on non apple computers. this is purely for testing purposes only. This is a great OS and i suggest all of you buy a copy.

first of all , donwload iDeneb v1.4 from somewhere(where you get it is not my problem)[try some torrent sites]
burn the image onto a dvd[using external dvd drive]. reboot your acer and hit f12 in the bios menu and select your external dvd drive.
Next, on the darwin screen,hit enter. wait for it to load up(this will take some time,about 5-10 mins,so be patient).

now,this is the main part. Select the disk that you just erased as mac os extended(journaled) and hit continue. now click on "Customize". In the list , select the following:(X-Drop down menu, *-Select): ????????

X Patches 10.5.6 ready

X Alternate Essential Patch

* ACPI kext 10.5.6

X PS2 Fix for ACPI kext 10.5.6(choose any one)

* PS2 Fix Mouse

X Audio

* Apple Azalia Audio

X Chipset

* ICHx Fixed

X Kernel

* Kernel 9.5.0 Voodoo

X Network

X Ethernet

* AttansicL1

X Wireless

* Atheros AR5007(can try atheros wifi adapter or broadcom too)

X Fix

* Cpus=1-Fix

* Battery Manager

X System Utilities(Don't Select)

X Video

X Intel

* Intel GMA950

X Applications (choose which ever you want, but these are the one I chose. Kext helper and OSX86 tools are important)

* Adium
* Kexthelperb7
* OSX86 tools
* Pacifist

After selecting the above, click install. You can skip through the disk checking process. The whole installation process will take about 30 mins. Once the installation is complete, at the darwin boot screen,hit space and enter "-f"(without the quotes.) and hit enter.*You only have to do this the first time.


I'm trying to install -iDENEB v1.4 10.5.6 on my d250, I do not see the same thing from the pull down list , surely nothing with a X , So I'm not sure what the correct choices are ? Can someone help please

Greetings All.

I am a Mac noob, but have been a PC since before IBM released their 1st PC into the wild (early tester) back in the day.

I used the instructions provided by vjrngn123 (as quoted below) and my D250 is running OSX, sorta. Like others reported, my camera, mic, and ethernet (wired and non) do not work. My resolution is apparently 800x600.

On the plus side, I saved an image from my MacBook Pro (no longer have the Mac) and my programs and data were copied to the D250 as part of the setup. VERY cool. A big Thank You to vjrngn123 and everyone else for all of the help your postings have provided.

All of that said, I need some help. As PC and tech savvy as I like to believe I am, all of this talk of kexts and other things is not part of my vocabulary.

I downloaded the G950 file and also one called D250.zip provided in another thread on this board, but I still have no idea how to get this to work. I would really like to get better screen resolution, ethernet connectivity (wired or wireless) internal preferably but can live with external, and dare I ask, camera video and audio...

Thanks in advance!

hey guys, its me again. First off, i am in no way condoning or promoting the use of mac os x on non apple computers. this is purely for testing purposes only. This is a great OS and i suggest all of you buy a copy.

i've tried to install iAtkos v7 too many times and it just isn't working out for me,so, i decided to try another distro---iDENEB v1.4 10.5.6 . this baby is just amazing!!! it runs great in thr aao d250. this post is to help all those mac lovers out there to install hackintosh on the d250. so here we go:

first of all , donwload iDeneb v1.4 from somewhere(where you get it is not my problem)[try some torrent sites]
burn the image onto a dvd[using external dvd drive]. reboot your acer and hit f12 in the bios menu and select your external dvd drive.

Next, on the darwin screen,hit enter. wait for it to load up(this will take some time,about 5-10 mins,so be patient).
after it loads up,select your language and continue. at the next screen, go to disk utilities. select the partition where you want to install the os and format it as mac os extended(journaled).After its done,quit the disk utility.
Hit Continue.

now,this is the main part. Select the disk that you just erased as mac os extended(journaled) and hit continue. now click on "Customize". In the list , select the following:(X-Drop down menu, *-Select):

X Patches 10.5.6 ready

X Alternate Essential Patch

* ACPI kext 10.5.6

X PS2 Fix for ACPI kext 10.5.6(choose any one)

* PS2 Fix Mouse

X Audio

* Apple Azalia Audio

X Chipset

* ICHx Fixed

X Kernel

* Kernel 9.5.0 Voodoo

X Network

X Ethernet

* AttansicL1

X Wireless

* Atheros AR5007(can try atheros wifi adapter or broadcom too)

X Fix

* Cpus=1-Fix

* Battery Manager

X System Utilities(Don't Select)

X Video

X Intel

* Intel GMA950

X Applications (choose which ever you want, but these are the one I chose. Kext helper and OSX86 tools are important)

* Adium
* Kexthelperb7
* OSX86 tools
* Pacifist

After selecting the above, click install. You can skip through the disk checking process. The whole installation process will take about 30 mins. Once the installation is complete, at the darwin boot screen,hit space and enter "-f"(without the quotes.) and hit enter.*You only have to do this the first time.

AND THATS IT!!!! You now have Mac os X on your acer aspire one d250. The resolution will be 800x600. For 1024X600 resolution, load the gma950 kexts from iAtkos v7. Those of you who have it are lucky, those who don't, well, download it..LOL... Please reply or post a message if this helped. For the DWA-110 to work(ie USB Wireless dongle) install RT2500 kext.

Just received my newest D250. This one is upgraded with Wireless N, Atom D280 processor, integrated Bluetooth, 6cell battery, and a few other niceties. One unexpected surprise is that Costco automatically doubled the standard one year warranty to TWO years. That plus 90 days to return it "no questions asked" if it does not meet my needs.

Now for the real reason for this post... In addition to the video, mic, LAN/WLAN, and other issues with running iDeneb on the D270, now I have the CPU change and added BT & wireless to contend with. -_-

Does anybody have any advice to offer on getting rither for my Acer D250s up and running normally?

Thanks in advance...

Hi

id try to use iAtkos v7 on my d250 too but in the beginning of the installation it isnt possible for me to choose a partition. Before id create 3 partitions: C:with win7; d:for mac and a small one (without a letter) for recovery.

Does someone knows how to fit?Thank you!!!!
