Snow Leopard 10.6.6 on ASUS 1015PEM



Firstly I would like to introduce myself as James, this is my first post on this forum however I have spent countless hours reading up as a guest on how to install osx on a pc and felt it was time to return some gained knowledge back to the forum

Photos for tutorial coming soon

What's needed

A working mac for setting up the installer
8 - 16GB USB Stick
Netbook Installer 20101127091350 - (Google it as im not sure of the link policy)
Snow leopard Retail Install Disk
Kext Helper

Kexts etc
(I have attached these at the bottom)

AtherosL1cEthernet
VoodooHDA-2.7.2
Modified Flash Player (Stops flash content crashing safari)
Legacy Kernel for 10.6.6

What doesnt work
Graphics (Intel 3150)
WIFI (Solved by replacing with known working broadcom one from dell studio laptop)

Step 1
  • Open Disk Utilitys
  • Format the USB stick with a GUID partition table with the Mac OS Extended (Journaled) Format
  • Restore the Snow leopard Retail Install Disk on to the usb memory stick

Step 2
  • Run Netbook Installer 20101127091350 and "Create Booter" on USB Stick
  • Copy the legacy_kernel file into the root of the memory stick

Step 3
  • Plug USB stick into the netbook and boot from that stick
  • Select the Mac Install Disc option and type legacy_kernel in boot flag box
  • Open Disc Utilities in the installer to partition the installation drive (Use GUID partiton table with the Mac OS Extended (Journaled) file system)
  • Continue through the installer

Note: The installer will possibly hang at 10 minutes remaining this is normal, if this happens just power down the netbook

Step 4
  • Boot back into the USB and run Netbook Installer to make the installation bootable
  • Now remove the USB and boot from the new install

Step 5
  • Download Kext Helper and install the Ethernet Driver
  • Restart using the -f flag
  • Install Voodoo HDA and restart
  • Install remaining files

Hope this helps those that are struggling to get a working install
