I was going to buy this netbook http://uk.asus.com/p...rglRhH8D60Rmlv3

I would know if it is possible to install Snow Leopard, and if the wireless card included
has to be replaced with a compatible one.

Thanks!

At the moment, no one tried to install Snow Leopard on this machine. I already bought it and have a desire to install Mac OS, perhaps I will one of the first. I apologize for my English. I will try, in the near future I will write the results.

I got my 1215n recently. I am waiting for my snow leo disc to come in the mail.
BECAREFUL that you do not get a 1215n with a broadcome card.
Only the model with artheros card have a kext that will recongnize it as airport.
if you end up with a broadcom u will have to either get a dell 1510 card or an
USB dongle compatible with snow leo.

I am still looking for a kext for the graphics it is said that it is painfully slow with the
built in vesa drivers.

I have tried to install OSX on my 1215N, and the biggest problem is graphics. Its just not good enough without a working kext. I will make my 1215N a Macbook as soon as that kext is awailable.

I'm interested in putting OSX to 1215N as well.

Lets post it here if someone finds a kext for graphics.

copy & paste mach_kernel to your usb stick

I used Chameleon + 10.6.3 + DSDT.aml + mach_kernel_atom

download AtherosL1cEthernet into Extra/Extensions

what is the way u installed SL?
create a usb stick with sl 10.6.3 - using netbook bootmaker(netbook installer will give kernel panic like frosty told)
booting from usb stick - installing sl on the internal hd
booting sl from internal hd using usb stick
Chameleon-2.RCr516.pkg - installing boot0 + boothf
reboot - grey display - apple logo shown..freeze
without the usb stick no sl boot from hd
installing osx86tools - installing efi + fdisk -
reboot - boot0 error
without the usb stick no sl boot from hd

well... it seems i got no luck with sl for the moment....
if we got a way to create a working sl (standard) on our 1215n (for now without ion/gma / wlan support(broadcom) a tutorial would be great - to help others with the same problems ;)
