Installed Snow Leopard first using ##### and 10.6.3 Retail DVD

Prepared a USB Installer using xMove and Lion Retail DMG image mounted.

Installed Chimera 1.5.3 to the USB, copy the attached Extra folder to the root of the USB

Boot from the USB and install (Used the MBR Patch to modify USB so that can install to MBR)

May need a USB Mouse and Keyboard during install/ initial setup.

Boot from the USB Installer copy the Extra folder, install Chimera 1.5.4 , Run Kext Wizard


Replaced wireless with Azureware AR5B95 Half Mini from eBay ($4.50) and used the attached Kext and wireless works without any problem.
Use the attached Kext for Ethernet, may need to set the Mac Address manually to get the ip address.
Use something like this (change accordingly for your Mac Address) :

sudo ifconfig en0 ether b8:ac:6f:c8:e9:e3

For battery, use the attached Kext.

did have to Delete /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/NetworkInterface.plist and reboot to get App Store and Face Time working.

Now some screenshots:

Broadcom NetLink Fast Ethernet BCM7906M

Finally got this working on my Dell XPS M1330.

Use the attached Kext found @ http://code.google.com/p/osx-bcm5906m/

Snow Leopard on Sony Vaio VGN-TXN25N

31 December 2010 - 03:05 PM

Machine Specs :

CPU: Intel Core Solo U1500
RAM : 1.5GB
Graphics Processor: Intel®Graphics Media Accelerator 950 VideoRAM: 224MB Total Available Graphics Memory13 Chipset: Intel®945GMS Interface: VGA out w/ Smart Display Sensor
WirelessLAN: Intel®PRO/Wireless3945ABGNetwork

Tried all kinds of boot CDs to boot to the Retail DVD, just won't work. So created my own using the BootCDMaker.

You will need and external VGA monitor, USB Mouse and Keyboard to finish the installation.

Once you get it to boot, just install Snow.

On first boot, re-install the AppleIntelGMA* and AppleIntelIntegratedFramebuffer.kext (attached GMA950.zip) from this thread, and Display works with proper resolution.

Installed Chameleon 2 RC3 r658 and copied the contents on Extra.zip to the Extra folder and ran Kext Utility.

Installed the attached ApplePS2Controller.kext to get the Keyboard and Mouse working. You will have to remove the *Trackpad.kext from the Plugins of the above kext to get the Touchpad working.

Used the latest VoodooHDA installer to get the sound working.
Only thing (that I need) is not working is the Intel Pro Wireless 3945ABG. If somebody could help with that, that would be awesome. In the meanwhile, using the Zonet Wireless G USB adapter ZEW2508 for wireless, (Wireless Utility app attached).
