10.7.4 hosed my machine, good thing I had a 10.7.3 backup. What steps can we take to make this work again?
Make 10.7.4 work? Good question... Lot's of hackintoshes are breaking down with the latest Apple update - unlike the previous one (10.7.3) which was mainly hassle free.
Maybe Apple is trying to give the hackintoshers some trouble....
BTW, are your 1201n's overclocked? If so @ what ghz? I've been running my 1201n very stable and with controlled temps @ 1.92Ghz and I'm very happy so far - it definitely feels snappier both in OSX & Win 7.
Used the AHCI unlocked 0326 BIOS (attached) to set AHCI mode before installing OS X and also the "Performance options" to overclock the FSB.
Did a 64-bit geekbench test and pulled 1677 points (see attachment). Guess it's not that bad for a netbook.
The thing that only improved slightly was Lion's boot time which is so damned slooooooooooow!! Before over clocking it was like 1m15s(!!) to the Finder screen and now still takes some 1m05s or so. This with kernelchache=yes - actually it made no difference whatsoever in boot time.
Even loading windows it's slow - but the oddest thing is that when you benchmark the hard disk it pulls out perfectly normal numbers. Mistery.... I mean even my good ol´MSI Wind U100 beats the crap out of the 1201n booting both Win 7 & OS X - taking less than half the time! lol
What's your experiences with the 1201n as far as performance is concerned? Any tips?
