I was wondering if you add the 2go ram Sodimm?
Because I tryed and unfortunately the 2go ram sodimm 667 DDR 5300 non ECC CL4 from kingston (and from crucial) was creating a non detection of my keyboard and mouse.
I was wondering which ram trademark I should use.
if anyone knows
Hello all. First post here. Just wanted to thank everyone, esp the OP, for the great info.
This guide worked perfectly for the eee 1000 model I bought off Craigslist for $150. The 1000 model has two ssds instead of a hard drive. One 8 gb and one 32 gb.
I modded my install a bit to use the ssds efficiently. Snow Leopard needed a bit of trimming to fit within the 8 gb ssd, I did the install with no extra languages or printer drivers, etc. I also deleted the sleep image, and the install ended up being sub 5 GB. This leaves enough space for the caches and whatnot. The user folders are all located on the 32 GB ssd, an easy tweak using the Advanced Options in Account prefs.
Hibernation and Spotlight indexing were disabled to avoid unnecessary wear on the ssds and I don't need either feature on the netbook anyway. Also shutting off hibernation is what allowed me to delete the 1+ GB sleep image and make the install work on the 8 gig.
It's running 10.6.1 right now. Everything works, but I will be grabbing a Broadcom card out of the parts bin at work to replace the Ralink. I will also be doing the obligatory 2 GB ram upgrade. I noticed that SL runs noticeably faster than the original Linux that came on it. Good job Apple!
So if anyone gets a chance at the eee PC 1000 model, snag it up. Works really well.
