Hi, everyone!

 

I have an OS X netbook project in mind, which might be hard to accomplish, because in my first try it rarely booted the installer and it was very slow. These are the specs of the computer:

  • Intel® Atom™ processor N455 (512K Cache, 1.66 GHz)
  • 11.6"  
  • 2 GB DDR2 PC2-6400
  • 250 GB HDD, 5400rpm
  • Intel® GMA 3150
  • Atheros AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter
  • Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller
  • 3 USB 2.0 ports (Intel®  N10/ICH7 Family USB Univerdal Host Controller)
  • 1 VGA port
  • 1 MMC SD reader
  • Webcam
  • Intel® NM10/ICH7 Family High Definition Audio Controller

I know this particular graphics chip is a pain for everyone and it will definitely pose a threat to me as well. However, just the installation would make me very happy.

 

I used DSDT editor for Windows today and tried patching the DSDT, but even though the errors were fixed the warnings were still present.

 

I am attaching my DSDT here if anyone more experienced than me can give me a hand and apply the right patches and fixes would be amazing.

 

I hope someone can give me a hand, thank you kindly for your help!

 

Progress:

Installation takes about 1h 30m.

800x600 screen resolution.

Ethernet working (self-assigned IP address fix).

No QE/CI.

No sound.

No Airport.

Random crashes.
