  1. http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...0&start=240 Here is the link to what GMX is talking about DTGP... Finally someone found the original link...I checked it, but seems like there is no more activity there...thanks GMX.
  2. I havent used boot flags - any of them...iStat Menus and Activity Monitor show both threads... Try deleting the AppleIntelCpuPowerManagement kext...
  3. Here is the link to the file...debug.zip...includes dsdt_fixed, dsdt.dsl, hpet_fixed and rtc_fixed http://www.mediafire.com/?sharekey=4334f6f...04e75f6e8ebb871 I also posted my aml file at the same location, browse the folder if you want to...
  4. Will do when I get home tonight.
  5. Your DSDT is specific to AOA-110, which is the UK model and uses 3114 Bios... There are other threads on insanelymac for patching DSDT correctly, you should be able to see where you are going wrong...I havent digged that deep into DSDT..and when building DSDT, I found it useful to boot the notebook clean, no USB or SD cards...only power... And thanks, I will fix the typos There's nothing wrong with getting your hands dirty!!! There might also be links to a working dsdt on the net for the A110...you should look...makes your life easier and your hands not that dirty
  6. You can use the DSDT Patcher to create your own dsdt file. I unchecked all options in the patcher and then created the file and applied to Snow... I am using bios 3310 (US and Canada)...You're saying AOA-150 or AOA-110...150 is N/A and 110 is EU? Here is the log from my DSDT file build, I didnt apply it right away using the patcher. I built the file, then copied it over to /EFI/Extra "Intel ACPI Component Architecture AML Disassembler version 20080926 [Oct 4 2008] Copyright © 2000 - 2008 Intel Corporation Supports ACPI Specification Revision 3.0a Intel ACPI Component Architecture ASL Optimizing Compiler version 20080926 [Oct 4 2008] Copyright © 2000 - 2008 Intel Corporation Supports ACPI Specification Revision 3.0a ASL Input: ./dsdt_fixed.txt - 7141 lines, 253674 bytes, 2990 keywords AML Output: ././dsdt.aml - 26626 bytes, 811 named objects, 2179 executable opcodes Compilation complete. 0 Errors, 0 Warnings, 0 Remarks, 37 Optimizations DSDT Patcher 1.0.1e -- report Bugs to superfassl@gmail.com enclose "DSDT Patcher/Debug/USER.tar" Press any key to continue...

  7. http://www.mediafire.com/?sharekey=4334f6f...04e75f6e8ebb871 Get the SnowGMA.zip from here and go through the maintenance procedure again...(see below) In the terminal type (This is done from within Snow, if you cannot access Snow, you can also do this from Leo) a. chown root:wheel / b.mount the EFI partition - mkdir /Volumes/EFI - mount_hfs /dev/diskXs1 /Volumes/EFI - kextcache -a i386 -m /System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup/Extensions.mkext /System/Library/Extensions /Volumes/EFI/Extra/Extensions - kextcache -a i386 -m /Volumes/EFI/Extra/Extensions.mkext /Volumes/EFI/Extra/Extensions /System/Library/Extensions - umount-f /Volumes/EFI - rm -rf /Volumes/EFI - reboot
  8. Most guides assume you have atleast some access to a pre-installed environment to run the kextcache etc... There might be guides out there, you have to look for them...AFAIK, I havent seen a guide that will let you install Snow without anything... I will keep my eyes open though... Thanks Michael, I just got to the forum again after a few days, I will work on the above and see if there is something out there that can help us...most of the forums seem to stop right after installation and first working install...
  9. Snow leopard on an ASUS laptop? help?

    You should post more specs for your notebook...is it AMD? Then follow usual guides for installing Snow with Voodoo kernel... Google and Insanely Mac are your friends...lots of guides here, search using your specs vs. computer model...
  10. Thanks Michael, you are correct, there should be a space before the last '/Volumes...'...too much excitement at getting it running I guess =) As long as you have the working kexts from a 10.5.8 installation and building the mkext with the i386 string should work...I havent seen another guide for the 110 however, if I come across it I will post...I used the Golden Master, you can try other versions (10A4xx)..AFAIK, it's either the same performance or better with SSD (no moving parts)...just make sure you partition as GUID... Jash, the linked guide assumes a generic pc based hardware setup and not a Netbook, I am sure with some fiddling around you can make it work, however, I have tried atleast 10 different methods posted across insanelymac as well as other sites and nothing worked for me except this way...
  11. Kernel Panic - AppleACPIPlatform

    I dont think its an issue with the kext you put in Extra. Can you tell me where your Extra is? For eg. /Snow/Extra? If you have all your kexts, try rebuilding with "kextcache -a i386 -m". You might also want to try booting into -s if possible, use fsck then do the kextcache rebuild....I think Snow assumes you have all 64 bit kexts especially the ones you add to the folders... Do chmod and chown on the folder, then repair permissions... Good luck..
  12. Snow Leopard on Acer Aspire 6920

    Hi I found that the easiest way to get Snow working on Acer is to install the extras to EFI partition. I had to do a lot of digging for it, but finally figured it out. Do you have an existing DSDT for your Notebook? It might be even easier if you do.
  13. Hi All! I finally got around to posting something meaningful to the forums. I successfully installed Snow Leopard onto my Acer Aspire One A150. Specs and instructions are below: My specs: Acer Aspire One A150 Pearl Intel Atom N270 1.6 GHz, 1.5 GB RAM, 160GB HDD Dual Booting (Chameleon RC1) - Leopard (100GB)/Snow (52GB) - GPT - Got Rid of Windows Finally! Here is how I got around to installing Snow Leopard 10A432 on my Aspire One. I take no credit for the information. I was wandering on Google to find a perfect guide and a few weeks ago, I stumbled upon a Russian website that had posted most part of these instructions. After battling with Google Translate and Babelfish, I finally was ready to post the instructions. I took a print of the instructions and downloaded the attachments before I started. If I ever find the website again, I will post back here. So without further ado, here we go. - Installing from a working OS X 10.5.8 on aao-150 (bios 3310) - Partitioning GUID, bootloader pc-efi v10.2 in the EFI partition 1. Mount the original image and run the installation: Find the image from usual sources. in the terminal type: open /Volumes/Mac\OS\ X\ Install\ DVD/System/Installation/Packages/OSInstall.mpkg Complete Installation 2. We now have to prepare EFI partition and set the bootloader unpack the attached archive to your desktop (you can choose other locations, the instructions below assume you unpacked to the desktop) While in terminal, type the following: sudo-s Password diskutil list diskXs1 - hidden EFI partition HDD where we will set 10.6 format the EFI partition (Warning: Do not make mistakes with the disks and partitions - I am not responsible for your selections) diskutil eraseVolume "HFS+" "EFI" /dev/diskXs1 Now we will put bootloader into the EFI partition a. cd ~/Desktop/aa1/pc_efi b. (Please note the period before this command) ./fdisk -f boot0 -u -y /dev/rdiskX (rdiskX here is your first drive that the EFI partition resides on) c. dd if=boot1h of=/dev/rdiskXs1 d. mkdir /Volumes/EFI e. mount_hfs /dev/diskXs1 /Volumes/EFI f. cp boot_v10.2 /Volumes/EFI/boot g. mkdir /Volumes/EFI/.fseventsd h. touch /Volumes/EFI/.fseventsd/no_log 3. Set extensions (DSDT.aml made for aao150 bios 3310, if you have more hardware than the store version, you will need to make your own DSDT) a. mkdir /Volumes/EFI/Extra b. cp ~/Desktop/aa1/plist/*.plist /Volumes/EFI/Extra c. cp ~/Desktop/aa1/dsdt/DSDT.aml /Volumes/EFI/Extra d. mkdir /Volumes/EFI/Extra/Extensions e. cp -R ~/Desktop/aa1/kexts/*.kext /Volumes/EFI/Extra/Extensions 4. IMPORTANT STEP! BY RULE DO THESE ON THE VOLUME YOU INSTALLED SNOW TO (X MARKS THE SPOT) a. chmod -R 755 /Volumes/EFI/Extra/Extensions b. chown -R root:wheel /Volumes/EFI/Extra/Extensions c. chmod -R 755 /Volumes/x/System/Library/Extensions d. chown -R root:wheel /Volumes/x/System/Library/Extensions 5. Create caches a. kextcache -a i386 -m /Volumes/x/System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup/Extensions.mkext /Volumes/x/System/Library/Extensions /Volumes/EFI/Extra/Extensions b. kextcache -a i386 -m /Volumes/EFI/Extra/Extensions.mkext /Volumes/EFI/Extra/Extensions /Volumes/x/System/Library/Extensions c. chmod 755 /Volumes/EFI/Extra/Extensions.mkext d. chown root:wheel /Volumes/EFI/Extra/Extensions.mkext e. chmod 755 /Volumes/x/System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup/Extensions.mkext f. chown -R root:wheel /Volumes/x/System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup/Extensions.mkext 6. Unmount and remove EFI partition from view a. umount -f /Volumes/EFI b. rm -rf /Volumes/EFI 7. Reboot! The first boot is pretty long - be patient - keep your hands away from the power button! If you're bored, you can startup with key -v (Verbose), to see what we have going on there <LOL> You should now hear the startup music and the rest is...well you know already MAINTENANCE ONLY! ONLY DO THIS IF SOMETHING IS NOT WORKING THE WAY IT SHOULD. With Snow I noticed the issue is mostly with permssions and the mkext is finicky. Fixing rights and rebilding caches In the terminal type (This is done from within Snow, if you cannot access Snow, you can also do this from Leo, just start adding /Volumes/Leo to the locations below) a. chown root:wheel / b.mount the EFI partition - mkdir /Volumes/EFI - mount_hfs /dev/diskXs1 /Volumes/EFI - kextcache -a i386 -m /System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup/Extensions.mkext /System/Library/Extensions /Volumes/EFI/Extra/Extensions - kextcache -a i386 -m /Volumes/EFI/Extra/Extensions.mkext /Volumes/EFI/Extra/Extensions /System/Library/Extensions - umount-f /Volumes/EFI - rm -rf /Volumes/EFI - reboot *** UPDATED: Used the attached kext to get SD going, still cannot access MMC though - Make sure you follow the maintenance procedure above after installing the kext - My preferred tool is KextHelper *** I didn't have time to work with the SD reader, I will post an update when I get a chance. Everything else should work, restart, shutdown, speedstep, calibrating the display, touchpad, automatic switching sound on headphones As I said, Snow is very finicky to the presence of caches and the proper permissions to files, so that if any kexts give you errors, do not forget to reboot to fix the rights and rebuild caches using the maintenance procedure. A screenshot of my desktop is attached as well. OTHER NOTES: - First startup took me almost 15-20 minutes. - Wireless is working after I edited the Info.plist for 1395 Broadcom Wireless in the IO80211Family.kext and entered my vendor id (pci14e4,4315) - Havent tested a lot of other things, but I know one thing for sure, on my A150, Snow flies better than Leopard!!!!!!!!! - Please PM me if you have any questions. **** MIC STILL DOESNT WORK, NOR DOES SLEEP, WORKING ON OTHER KEXTS AVAILABLE OUT THERE, WILL HAVE TO DO SOMETHINGS MYSELF THAN INSTALLING A KEXT **** EXTERNAL DISPLAY IS GARBLED, TEARS AS SOON AS YOU PLUGIN THE CABLE **** ANYONE HAVE ANY IDEAS? **** Thanks for looking and Good Luck. UPDATE: 10.6.1 UPDATE APPLIED THROUGH SOFTWARE UPDATE! aa1.zip IOSDHCIBlockDevice.kext.zip
  14. HP TX1000Z Tablet Compatibility with Leopard

    I'm not trying to pick on you man...I know if people like you give up and walk away, not everyone will be able to start all over on your forum...I never said you were a noob The message is for all the noobs who come here and only want to ask what the noob before them asked...that said, I have seen some threads on extracting the onboard rom and working with it...not sure how it will go...but we cant really give up hope, yes?
  15. HP TX1000Z Tablet Compatibility with Leopard

    @Dariog78 - There is work being done elsewhere on this, at the same time, if you had looked through almost 900 posts, you would have noticed this already...I agree with Wyzazz's and the_29's post about 10-15 pages prior...if everyone wants to come to this topic and only wants to know what is being done for QE/CI, he has all the right to vent... @Wyzazz/the_29 - I have looked around and tried to install almost every other valid AMD distro but Leo4All V2 still comes out on top - I am not a super techie like you guys are but I would wait for something to come by which is validated by better folks like you...and the work put in by Yellow and so on... @For all the noobs who post here...maybe you all should try other distro's and post your experiences and that would help before posting something like "Anything going on with QE/CI"? I also saw a post from Rackball who is inviting people to join his forum....however, my comments on that is that maybe he should update this topic with his experiences and what he has been trying to do from his side than trying to run parallel forums...This topic is by far the best you can find on TX1000/2000... I have been patient and will be patient...so far I have a usable installation with V2...If you all are that impatient, maybe just go buy a real mac, I am sure some of us have a few dollars to spare
