  1. Acer Aspire One ZG5 Installation Issues

    Hello, I have exactly the same machine as you. I reccomend you to use the excelllent guide at Acer One ZG5 Snow Leopard . Word of caution: If you have an Atheros 5BXB63 A5007EG, it wont work, period. No matter what method you find or try, It won't work. Buy one Dell DW1390 for 8 USD in ebay to the user KSARKR1, cover the pin 20 with tape(look the guide in this site) and even better, rebrand it so you'll have an Airport Extreme (not indispensable and highly risky, but hey, life is short... Also the guide is in this site also). You'll end up with an almost fully hackintosh machine. The only thing won't work is the card readers, as they connect to the pci bus, not the usb bus, they wont work. Good Luck and have fun! =)
  2. My machine: Acer One ZG5 AOA 150-1754 1Gb RAM 160Gb HDD. First changed the useless Atheros AR5BXB63 that came from factory to a Dell DW1390 (Broadcom 4311 chipset) that cost 9 USD on ebay. It was working perfectly on a start-from-zero install of Snow Leopard 10.6, later updated to 10.6.7 Everything was working perfectly, but I wanted an "real" Airport, so I tried the procedure. Now it appears as a real Airport, still works perfectly, both in Snow Leopard 10.6.7 and Windows 7 (in Windows 7 it was automatically detected and sees all networks WPA2, WEP, etc...) I'm happy and greateful to all that made this possible. Thanks!!! =)
  3. What happens is that you are installing an old version of Madwifi. In order to use ath_info with AR5BXB63, you need a newer version than the madwifi.sh installs. Look, just change this code in the original madwifi.sh posted at the beginning of the thread, and try again. # Get the necessary drivers from www.stchman.com sudo wget [url="http://snapshots.madwifi-project.org/madwifi-hal-"]http://snapshots.madwifi-project.org/madwi...20100324.tar.gz[/url] # unpack the tarball sudo tar -xzf /usr/src/madwifi-hal- # Change to the folder that the tarball created cd /usr/src/madwifi-hal- Rebranding was not a solution for me, I tried a lot, and I mean a lot of combinations of IDs, Subdev IDs, etc,etc, and I never had it working on Mac OS 10.6.7. My AR5007EG or AR5BXB63 presents this data: <class_id> 0200 <vendor_id> 168c <device_id> 001c <subven_id> 105b <subdev_id> e008 <memory_loc> 55200000 I'm not giving up yet, but is kinda boring after 16 hours trying new values and then checking if MacOs see the card. =) Good Luck.
  4. Thanks Tom, following your advice I downloaded the audioHDA 1.16 but, as you say, it expect me to drag a linux codec which, honestly I have no clue where or which I must choose. So, I downloaded a AppleHDA.kext from an older version 10.4.3, and I overwrite that file in /System/Library/Extensions/ clearing cache, repaired permissions and it worked!... Also I have now my network card functioning using a AppleIntel8255x.kext from an older version 10.4.6 So... This is looking promising, I´want to stop using Vista as soon as possible. Thanks for your help, you really pointed me in the right direction.
  5. No network, No sound.. Motherboard Intel D945GNT with buil tin Intel Pro/100 VE And Sigmatel HDAudio. The drivers are in the 1.3 install DVD and I selected them when installing, but no luck, they are not detected. Do someone with this motherboard model was lucky? What´s the trick? ... I also followed some guides in order to get the net card recognized, but again, no luck. It doesn´t exist to my Mac OS. Everything else works great I must say, but without network and sound is like a car without tires. Can somebody help me? Thanks in advance.
