This is the boot file to make it work.
Snow Leopard 10.6.5 required.

Thanks to Meklort & Mohamed Khairy :)


Hi,

This boot doesn't work for me. Grey screen. Only boots with "-x" or ignoring kextcaches.

Nvidia ION seems to work (gfx string extracting 1215N ION ROM) but i think that without igp intel running is useless.

10.6.3 Installation Guide for Asus 1215N

Hey, I've decided to write a comprehensive guide on how to install the retail version of Snow Leopard onto your Asus 1215N netback. I want to help those struggling to install the OS, to finally be able to follow a guide that's written to work, and that I too, struggled to install the OS based on the information given in the previous posts. (mainly because they were too vague)

Requirements
- Retail Snow Leopard 10.6.3 [DMG]
- USB Flash Device (8GB) OR Hard Drive
- Virtual Box / Machine loaded with Snow Leopard OR Macbook / iMac OR Hackintosh
- Netbook Installer (vers. 27112010) http://goo.gl/ZGG0H

You might need
- mach_kernel_atom FOR 10.6.3 http://www.mediafire.com/?ianjknmndaj
- myHack (vers. 1.1.4) http://www.mediafire...gk941po72op3ex9

This guide will explain, how to install the OS on an EXTERNAL HARD DRIVE.

So, to begin the installation, we are going to need to prepare the installation disk. I heavily suggest you buy the retail (not oem) version of the disk (snow leopard / 10.6.3). Basically, to install the OS onto our computer, we need to get the installation files onto our netbook. I am going to use a hard drive to install the OS, but you can use a USB flash device.

If you get stuck on any of these steps, with a problem, look at the bottom for the FAQ, as this guide only contains pure installation steps.

First, I'd gather the two items needed to make the hard drive, on to the Desktop. Copy these items (Retail Snow Leopard 10.6.3 DMG), (NetBook Installer). These three items, will be needed to make the installation files.

On your already existing MAC OS X device, open up [Disk Utility] via Application>Utilities>Disk Utility. Now you should be able to see your device (hard drive/flash drive) on the left hand pane. Select the device and click Partition, on the right side pane, and make sure you've selected the device, as this can potentially ruin your already existing device.

Create 1 partition (or 2/3 if you are using an external hard drive, and wanting to install the OS on the external hard drive). Name them anything, but keep the installation partition (10 GB). It doesn't matter what you name this partition, since we'll be restoring this certain partition.

The partition process should finish within 30 seconds (2 minutes max). Once, it's finish we can move forward. Drag the (Retail Snow Leopard 10.6.3 DMG) on your desktop to the left side pane. This should start a process, where it's going to verify the DMG. Once that's finished, you can move to the next stage (or skip the verify process to instantly, transfer the image to your left side pane).

Now click the newly added image entry on your left side pane (It should say, something a long the lines of Mac OS X Install DVD). Now click, restore and if the entry isn't already under restore image, drag the entry on the left to the input box. Then drag the Installation hard drive on the desktop (the one we created for the installation, 10GB), to the target input box, underneath. Click 'Restore', and it'll start the process. This process, should take 30 or so minutes.

(Image source problem? don't be afraid, read FAQ)

Run NetbookInstaller over the newly restored partition (named: Mac OS X Install DVD), this should run and take a couple of minutes. We have now successfully, created an installation resource!

--== End of preparation

Hook your flash drive or hard drive to the netbook. Once it's starting to load press F2, and press or hold ESC, till you reach either the BIOS (in this case press ESC, and exit) or the loader, in which you'll be selecting your flash drive or hard drive. (You should of remembered the name (ID), when partitioning the device)

(Not loading, stuck on "_" loading screen?, read FAQ)

A boot loader should load up (Chameleon or basic theme), select (don't press enter) your MAC OS X Install drive, and then type "-v" without speech marks. The files will be loaded in a BIO's like manor, and it should take some time. If you have waited ten minutes or more, take a picture of the error and post it on this thread. It should work, if you've followed this guide.

Once you enter this stage, you will install the OS by following the prompts. If you are installing the OS on the external hard drive, select the partition you created, when you partitioned earlier.

NOTE: I have not written on how to install the OS on your main hard drive, because I didn't follow this process. I'd imagine you'd open up disk utility, by selecting utilise, and then formatting your main hard drive, to GUID partition and then create two partitions. (YOU WIL L LOOSE WINDOWS)

You should customise the install, if you wish to rid some junk. Press install, to continue the installation. It should take around 20-40 minutes. If the screen looks like it's locked up, then press any button on the netbook to wake it up. *The progress bar will jump forward"

Restart the machine, and power the loader by pressing/holding ESC during the boot up process or press F2, and then press/hold ESC to reach the loader. Select your hard drive, and you should reach the chameleon boot loader, once again.

This time, select (don't press enter) your newly installed MAC OS X partition. Type in "-v -f" and press enter to start the loading process. Once you've reached to the end of the grey booting loading screen, it tells you to press "Enter".

This next black screen, loads the inner components to run the OS. If it gets stuck, then post a picture on a reply, and I'll try and help you. Normally, the netbook installer, does it's magic. Once completed, it should shut your machine off. Just load the same hard drive with "-v -f" and reload the files, and it should reach the welcome screen, this time.

Set up your information, and you'll reach your Desktop! Congratulations, you've successfully installed MAC OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.3, on your device!

I won't be detailing much on upgrading, as I have successfully updated to both 10.5.5 and 10.5.6, but I'm not happy with the stability of the machine. I will hopefully update the guide, with further instructions, once someone has informed me, of how they've managed to make it reconize the GMA graphics card. (resolution)

FAQ
Q. Does Wifi work?
A.If you have artheros ar9285, it's supported: http://www.kexts.com...?do=file&id=462
If you have the built in broadcom wireless card, then your wireless card isn't supported

Q. Drivers for Ethernet and Sound?
For the sound, download the latest pkg here, and install: http://code.google.c.../downloads/list
For Ethernet, download a pkg, which is mentioned in one of the previous posts.

Q. Why is sound so noisy?
A. This is due to the input device, you can get rid of the noise and get crystal clear output noise. Go into System Preferences >Sound>(TAB)Input. Turn both ATAPI and Pink Right, underneath slide the scroller to the left. And you noise should be gone.

Q. The restore process is failing because of my image of snow leopard?
A. Go into Images>Scan Image for Restore, this will solve the problem.

Q. I've finished making the hard drive, however it doesn't load (only a "_" appears, and skips one line and doesn't do anything else.
A. This is a problem I faced. To be safe I'll restore the DMG again, but after that's done. I'll run myHack over the Installation DVD partition, and then run Netbook Installer. I've managed to boot up the the bootloader, using this method.

Q. I've installed the OS successfully, but when I try loading the partition for the first time (after installation) it says mach_kernel_atom not found.
A. Download the "mach_kernel_atom" ("You might need" section, below the Requirements). Plug your hard drive to the existing Mac OS X machine, and then copy the "mach_kernel_atom" to the root of the partition of the hard drive (the one you installed the OS to, not the installation DVD partition). Load the partition again with "-v -f" and it should load past this error now.

Q. Resolution is wrong, how can I fix it?
A. I'm not sure right now, myself :|

Q. Can I update to 10.6.5, 10.6.6?
A. Yes, make sure you rerun netbook installer, and add a "mach_kernel_atom" that supports 10.6.5 or 10.6.6 (depending on which one you install). I'm not going to offer support on these two issues, as it's hard to justify the support, when I'm suffering from errors myself :(

10.6.5 Installation Update for Asus 1215N

I'm going to squeeze a little more juice into this thread, by releasing a brief guide to update your machine to 10.6.5. I won't be upgrading to 10.6.6, because I've not really tested 10.6.6 yet, and I've been running a stable version of 10.6.5 for the past few hours (till I tried to fix the resolution, by updating extras, but just causes kernel panic).

Anyway, this guide should only be followed, if you've followed my previous guide, or the results may vary, but it's quite a simple guide.

Requirements
10.6.3 1215N
10.6.5 mach_kernel_atom: http://www.mediafire...jfph92xtp16m13m
Extra folder (provided by theHawk): http://www.insanelym...p...t&p=1585080
10.6.5 combo: http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1324
Showallfiles: http://www.kexts.com..._all_files.html

Update
I'd start by mounting the dmg, you will notice a new mounted image on your desktop: 10.6.5 combo update, when it's finished. Click it, and upgrade. Open "Showallfiles" and click show, your finder windows should close. Reopen finder, and you'll notice, you'll be able to see ALOT more files. Navigate to the root of your hard drive.

Once the update is finished (could take a while), rename the mach_kernel_atom (or copy it to desktop), and replace it with the 10.6.5 mach_kernel_atom you've downloaded for this guide. Now open up the "Extra" folder, you've downloaded for this guide.

Select all the files, and copy them to Extra folder, located at the root of your hard drive. Replace any files needed. (By replacing, don't delete all the files in the folder, and then paste the new files on, I mean overwrite existing filers, if they exist)

Restart, and it should load 10.6.5 with no problems, you may notice Netbook installer, recreating some files and this will turn the machine off, just reboot and it should start up. DONE! :D
--

I still can't get the resolution to work, I've replaced the boot files and added the module files. And I've added the string to the kext, and fixed permissions. It's a serious task to get the right resolution, until I get some help, I can't offer any help in this problem :(

Restart - and you'll have 10.6.5 - Re install boot loader if you want.

I wanted to thank this great thread, especially Devout for his tutorials and theHAWK for his extras folder.

I am now running 10.6.6 on my 1215N with full resolution, wifi, ethernet, sound, usb, SD Card, touchpad, keyboard, flash and lots of others.

I have a few problems, mainly lack of hardware acceleration, microphone, nVidia ION2, sleep, images not showing in Preview (already set it to 32-bit mode, didn't help) and iChat crashes when I try to use the camera (camera works fine in Photobooth).

Overall, I installed 10.6.6 as a developer OS for making iPhone apps and this will do very nicely. I know 10.6.7 recently came out and there's a mach_kernel_atom for it. Here's to hoping QE is on the horizon.

Thanks! It's been a great pleasure for writing the guide. I couldn't get the full resolution to work :S, so could you share how you did that to add to the guide. :D Have you also tried following this post to enable ION http://www.insanelym...p...&start=140# ? This user seems to have enabled the ION driver on his machine, and this + GMA, might enable QE/CI?..

I hope my guide was easy to follow! lalala---

The question is the following ... Nvidia Optimus tries to turn on / off ION2 to save energy, not the other way but...

Dsdt patching trick is based on by passing a modified data as PC bios... If we change the DSDT should be possible to tell mac to use directly the gpu (ION2) although is connected to the chipset NM10.

The question is how to make this possible? Apparently everything is correct, but ION2 is not connected to any display.

Howto Linux hybrid Graphics on Asus Eee 1215N

"The 1215N is similar to the m11x r2 in that it requires a special method (_DSM) being called with buffer arguments before the _PS3 method will turn the power off. I also found that the _PS0 method turns the power back on. After turning off the power, the power state appears to be set in the _PSC object: 0x0 when on, and 0x3 when off. Except this isn't accurate after the system has been put in standby - the power is on (according to the battery rate) but the_PSC is still 0x3. I have to use the script to turn the power off again after coming out of standby"

I will post what I did differently as well as try to upgrade to 10.6.7 Right now I am trying to dual boot windows 7 without much luck :/

I installed OS X first and am now trying to install Windows but I may have to do it in reverse? I managed to install windows to a NTFS partition but it won't boot. When I get it all worked out I can post what I did differently to get full resolution on 10.6.6 (hopefully .7).

Yes. But you'll need an external CD drive (USB) and an USB flash drive with myHack + 1215N replacement files (we only need to generte a boot file) Run myHack on the USB flash drive, replace the contents with the 1215N files, so it can boot up our files. Then insert the USB, boot up the USB via ESC, and then select the CD drive, and you'll start the installation screen, open disk utility, format drive, and then install.

Hey, I didn't forget you guys, I just got in a whole lot of problems trying to dual boot this thing, but in the end I am successful. I now have Chameleon as my boot loader and can choose between my HacBook HD or Windows 7 partition at will. I even installed Mac OS X 10.6.7. I have ntfs-3g installed so I can write to my Windows 7 partition and I have Mac Disk on my Windows 7 install so I can see and write to my HacBook partition.

Mac OS 10.6.7: Features I have working:
Full Resolution
Wifi
Ethernet
Sound
Camera registered as Built-in iSight
SD Card Slot
Functions keys such as Volume and Brightness.
Safari and Firefox 4 w/ Flash 10.0 (Anything higher causes hanging)

Features not working:
Preview not viewing images (using Xee instead)
iChat crashes when previewing video
QE <-- (This is a driver thing, meklort is working on it)
nVidia ION2 (made no progress on)
Sleep mode (any one got this working?)
Microphone (seems to be a VooDoo HD issue)
HDMI out (tied to nVidia)

Unknown Features:
Video out via VGA

As for what I did to get it like this:
The first steps of preparing a 10.6.3 drive and installing it were the same as Devout's 10.6.3 guide.

Where I strayed was upgrading from 10.6.3 to 10.6.7.

First, when I installed 10.6.3 I had no wifi and low resolution, so I had to load all the files I needed via USB drive before I could start.

Files I used:

Mac OS X 10.6.7 Combo update
Mach_kernel_atom for 10.6.7 (mentioned earlier)
TheHAWKS Extra folder w/ NetbookInstaller 0.8.5pre (posted earlier)

What I did was start the 10.6.7 combo update. When it was done it was prompting me to reboot, so I minimized it.

Next, I ran NetbookInstaller 0.8.5pre. This installed chameleon on the drive (according to meklort this chameleon he uses patches the video on boot which allows for full resolution).

After that was done I opened TheHAWKS Extra folder and copied his files into my Extra folder and replaced the files there.

This step I'm not sure if it was needed, but I copied mach_kernel_atom (for 10.6.7) into my root and also editted my boot.plist in my Extras folder to use mach_kernel_atom instead. This caused no issues and I'm not sure if it was even needed.

Finally I ran Update Extras from within my Extras folder and when that was done I brought up the Mac OS X combo installer window and pressed Restart.

The system booted into Chameleon, I chose my HacBook HD and booted into 10.6.7 with full resolution and wifi. From there I installed VooDooHDA for Audio, the atheros LAN kext mentioned earlier, uninstalled flash 10.1 and installed flash 10.0, and used a custom iSight kext I modded from a thread I found. I can upload it if someone wants but it doesn't seem to do anything extra besides report being an iSight camera.

So there I am. If anyone can help me fix sleep or preview, I'd be appreciative. I can re-edit this guide with links when I have more time.

Is it possible to install osx on a 1215N without having a mac/hackintosh or a computer with amd-v/intel vt-x?


I tried all sorts of methods from Image writer, transmac, imgburn and a few others, all failed. I ended up having to use my friends intel macbook. Made the flash drive and patched it with netbook installer per Devout's instructions. Oddly enough, the flash drive still wouldn't boot on it's own, I had to use Image Writer to take the NetbookBootLoader.img file and write it to another flash drive and boot off from that one, then the install flashdrive was selectable. After running netbookinstaller after the install I no longer needed the second flash drive. Odd.

EDIT: Forgot to mention, Mac Disk has a mount and write/burn dmg options, didn't try that one yet, but it may be worth a shot if Devout's above suggestion doesn't work.

I found out that my roomate has a processor with amd svm, so i was able to boot the osx installer (iDeneb) in vmware, but the installer froze. Is it possible to use the disk utility from the installer to format the flash drive?
The disk utility did not find my usb flash drive when i connected it.

EDIT: It didnt find it because it was formatted with NTFS, now i can see it and format it, but is there any way to use the restore function from the installation menu? like making a virtual harddrive with the dmg on it?

You can put the DMG on another flash drive or on a DVD as a data file. I don't work with Virtual Machines too often

The dmg is to big for a dvd but I tried a program called folder2iso, but it only created iso's that were 320kb big.
I guess i'll have to find someone with a mac instead :(

I managed to install OS X now, but unfortunately it is a Broadcom STA wifi card inside :D. I tried to install ubuntu to dualboot with but after I installed ubuntu and grub I cant boot into OS X anymore. When i select OS X in grub the screen just gets black and nothing happens. Is there something I can do to dual boot OS X and Ubuntu?


EDIT: One more question, how do I install the "extra files which theHAWKS(i think it was him) provided?

I'm not sure about the linux question, but the Extra folder goes into the root of your snow leopard installation. The folder might be hidden as well.

You would want to use the Mac OS X install disk to partition the HDD with 2 partitions. 1 is a Mac OS X Journaled and the other Free Space.

When partitioning is done boot Linux disk and let it create a partition in the free space. After linux is installed go back to Mac OS X installer and install OS X. The Chameleon boot loader is essential.

You can't copy the Extra folder directly to root as OS X won't let you modify hidden folders. You have to open the hidden folder /Extra and theHAWKS extra folder and copy and paste the contents of theHAWKS into your extra folder.

Thank you all for your work in bringing OS X to the 1215N. The posts from AnalogMan, Devout, theHAWKS and others have all been very helpful in finally getting OS X installed on my machine.

I currently have the existing Windows 7 installation, OS X 10.6.7, and Ubuntu 10.10 all installed on the internal HDD and booting via Chameleon (selecting the linux partition starts up GRUB2)

I do have a few issues/questions though.

After several attempts and trying many different methods, I ended up following mostly the posts from Devout and AnalogMan to install 10.6.3 and then the 10.6.7 update. I am able to boot from Chameleon with -v -f, but if I try to do it normally it always hangs.

My Wifi is now working, but I cannot get full resolution display working.

I'm pretty new to the OSx86 scene and have very limited experience with OS X in general (which I hope to rectify with this installation), so I'm wondering if anyone knew anything I could try to make it work.

I don' t use modified (with dev. id) AppleIntelGMA950 or AppleIntelIntegratedFrameBuffer.
Uses 10.6.7 kexts with my DSDT.aml.
