I've fixed Clover's kernel patcher, SPDScan and other MCP-chipset related issues and put together an installer package (really, it was for my self) suitable for 10.7 to 10.10 to get everything up and running in just few clicks.
Don't mirror my files without my permission!
Some essential steps to get this going on 1201N, using Mavericks as an example:
1. Get ahold of OSX machine where you can prepare a USB MBR/FAT32 drive with CloverEFI. Get Clover r2771 and install to USB drive in the following manner:
We just need MBR/PBR bootsectors to install, the rest is of minor importance.
2. Download Mavericks from Mac AppStore using your valid AppleID and use DiskMakerX to create a bootable USB GUID/HFS+ installer media
3. Remove EFI folder from your drive, put the contents of 1201N_CLOVER_USB archive there.
4. Go to BIOS and disable AHCI, set SATA mode to IDE. If your HDD is still formatted with OEM recovery image you need to disable BootBoster too as it will prevent you from entering Esc boot menu.
5. Start up the netbook, press Esc at POST and select your Clover USB drive. Boot from it and when GUI appears select your OSX Install Media and press space, chose Boot with Injected kexts.
6. When prompted to switch on keyboard and mouse just tap space. Go into Disk Utility and repartition your HDD/SSD with GPT (GUID) partition table. Create a Mac OS Journaled partition to install Mavericks onto. Exit disk utility and proceed with the installation. The installer will reboot the netbook and next time choose Boot OS X Install from ....*whatever you named your partition*, boot using space with injected kexts again and installation will finish.. it takes a while on MCP79 AHCI controller compared to Intel.
7. After you have installed Mavericks just boot it again using *space method* ....
8. When you have booted OSX, use same Clover package as before and install it in the following manner:
9. When that's done get my support package for 1201N and install it. Make sure to read the change log as it has some important information.
Version 1.2. (August 9th, 2014):
- Corrected a problem with serial number generator (thanks @theconnactic)
- Fixed error where installer was finishing with Failed message
- Patch added to address “ATH: Unknown locale xx” spam with Atheros 9285 (no need to mod EEPROM)
NB: Delete config.plist from EFI system partition before running the installer to ensure it generates a proper serial instead of backing up the old invalid one!
Version 1.1. (August 7th, 2014):
Version 1.0. (July 20th, 2014):
Explore your new fully functional (except HDMI audio) 1201N in whichever system version you desire ...
Main system I'm on is 10.8.5, feels snappier, colder and less flashy, enters sleep immediately too ... can't beat that.
Test partition has 10.10 DP3 installed, updated to Public Beta without issues.
P.S. Don't mind missing battery icon, i have my battery out.
