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!!!!

TT/Leipzig/Germany



Hi,

I would like to use iAtkos v7 but have been unable to locate it. I have several spare drives and I typically install new environments on a dedicated drive so as to preserve the integrity of my primary operating environment.

If anyone can pm me a link to iAtkos v7 I will be most grateful and will be pleased to report my findings and experiences.

Thank you.

Tony

Hi to all

I follow virgie guide and worked perfectly on my d250. Like the rest camera doesn't work. Somebody already got a fix for this?

Also, somebody fix the wireless with Atheros 5007eg without using Kismac??

Thanks

I can download any Airport update (client update too) to the d250??? What about the security update like 2009-006?

Thanks

HI!
I've just installed ideneb on my aao!
I tried with your guide, but has became veeeeeeeeeeeery slow on startup, then yet no link with this SW.
Any idea if there is a better solution? New drivers released?

Yes i too had a VERY slow OS, I'm using the AAOD250-0Bb with win 7 atm, had a go at it, but it was too slow to be usable for me.

But i did not look into making a dsdt for this netbook, so will have another go some time and post results.

regards.

It's me again!!,

As promised a wright up!!,

I found using Ideneb 1.6 was MUCH, MUCH better!!,

Install as the others said, well i used the USB HDD methord,

**USB HDD Methord**
1, Get ideneb 1.6.iso. Open it with disk util, and make a new image nameing it same as the ideneb 1.6 file name, but making sure you save it with the extension .dmg

2, Mount the new Ideneb 1.6.dmg and restore to a GUID partitioned hard drive. As long as its 7GB> your all good.

3, After a restore find and use a bootloader of your choice, i used Chameleon 2 RC1 + boot 10.1 as it just works!.

4, Then boot from the USB HDD and continue the install.

*****Install Customize options to select*****

_(x) iDeneb Main System
_(-) iDeneb OS X Components 10.5.8 Ready
__(-) Bootloader

_____(x) GMA950 - Up 2 you again never worked on my config, but i do know their is a GMA950.pkg floating around that works as i have used it before on this Forum someware. **EDIT** GMA950 works with framebuffer.kext installed.
_(x) Cleanup

If you still have the aethros card installed you will get KP's Hal status 13.

After the install the AAOD250 will reboot, and you will be greated with the intro music, But alas no WIFI/LAN or sleep/Hibernation.

I did swap my wifi card for a DW 1510 Supposed to work OOTB, but its not, wether is an acer restrict thing i don't know??.

Anyway hope it all helps :-D

Rich.

In order to your list, I've found better to install Seatbelt Fix (KP when downloading or FTPing with safari), then I've installed the GMA950 Pkg without QE/CI, installed another Package, no Res, no QE/CI, reinstalled GMA950 and repair permissions, and QE/CI and Res enabled and proudly working (some mouse cursor twin was created, but it's not a problem!)

For the resident Atheros, I've changed the AR5007 with an Apple Atheros (if I don't remember bad, AR5BX6) that is fully working with airport (some balls breaking ;) with WPA, but works elsewhere!)

The one thing isn't working, is Webcam, and two jack output and input!

Hello Willy!!,

You may find it easier to use Netbook installer, and check the supported devices section for a more stable Snow leopard install.

Plus so much easier!!.

Check it out all!!!!!

Ok, little update- I used the Ralink RT73 kext file for a Belkin usb adapter I have.
It works, but it is not ideal having to use a giant usb adapter for internet.

Working:
sound
graphics drivers
usb adapter wireless
trackpad and keyboard
volume and brightness controls

Not working:
built in wifi - NEED THIS
webcam- no big deal
ethernet- never use it anyway
not sure if headset will work

This computer I don't use much at all, I have an iMac and MacBook Pro, but this I use occasionally at work to diagnose network problems and run around with a laptop. Wifi is needed.

Does anyone have suggestions? When I go to system preferences > network
No devices are listed (except the usb adapter- listed as ethernet)
But I can't get the Airport to show up.

Please help, someone! Thanks :)

edit- also get kernel panics when trying to mount disk images. (tried downloading chrome and when the dmg was mounted it froze up on me) sigh*

Another update!
Installed the seat belt kext and it fixed the dmg mounting problem.
Did a lot of research and found a pkg that installs the correct drivers for my wifi card. It's a Broadcom 4312.
After installing that the wifi works as well.
As of now everything I need works. It's be nice to have the webcam work, but I probably wont use it often if ever.

I get the message that my video card doesn't support photobooth.

Haven't been able to test it elsewhere, yet.

Is there a way to get the trackpad to support multi touch as it does in XP/Vista?
That would be the icing on the cake...

You can use with this drivers the atheros Ar5007?

Your troubles with Photobooth, seems like the "no QE/CI" Problem

I don't know what you're saying or asking in your first sentence...

I enabled quartz, but read something about quartz extreme? Where would I get that if it is in fact what I need.

The real pain in the ass I've noticed is that it won't wake up after going to sleep.

A lot of times I'll put my laptops to sleep as apposed to a full shut down when I know I'll use it again in a little while.
With this I have to either leave it on, or turn it off. I'd love a fix for this...

With the broadcom pkg you fully enabled the original built-in wireless module?

yea i found a download for it.
for some reason I was only able to get it installed after installing the USB adapter.
Once that installed the other worked too. Weird. But whatever works!
