Problems installing Mac OS on HP Mini 5102

30 July 2010 - 06:33 PM


I have bought a HP Mini 5102 (the "big" configuration with HD Display, 6 Cell battery, UMTS, and so on) and would like to run Mac OS on it. I have both Leopard and Snow Leopard on Original DVD (because I have a Macbook as well) and would like to know if anyone can help me with installing it.

I have put the Mac OS Snow Leopard Install DVD with the help of disc utility (on my macbook) on an 8GB USB stick and used netbook boot maker to make the stick bootable. I can choose to boot from the stick, but then it says "Media test failure, check cable" and starts booting Win. :(

I am wondering if anybody here has any experiences with Mac OS on HP Mini 5102 and can probably tell me if everything works fine with it.

I've seen a compatibility chart for the 5101 and it says everything except sleep functionality works fine. It is expected to be the same with the 5102?

thanks a lot in advance..
