    CoolBook

    Do you know of any hackintosh tools for preventing Intel Speedstep from scaling down the CPU speed from 1.6GHz to 800MHz when running on battery? My computer is an Acer Aspire One A150 netbook. Thanks for the reply.

    Does CoolBook fix issues with Intel Speedstep such as CPU downscaling?

    Acer Aspire One AOA150 ZG5 CPU Scales Down

    Thanks for the reply. My specs can be found here: http://panam.acer.com/acerpanam/netbook/0000/Acer/aspireoneaoa150/aspireoneaoa150sp2.shtml Processor: Intel Atom N270 1.6GHz RAM: 1GB HDD: 160GB I shall try removing VoodooPower Mini and see if it makes a difference. Is there any kext available to stop SpeedStep from scaling down the CPU when running on battery? Otherwise, would something like CoolBook work?
  4. Hi I'm running 10.6.8 and on every version of OSX the CPU speed scales down from 1.6GHz to 800MHz when the AC power cord is unplugged and running on battery. This was confirmed by GeekBench. I'm pretty sure this is to do with Intel SpeedStep but there's no option in the BIOS to disable it. VoodooPowerMini, VoodooBattery and NullCPUPowerManagement are installed but the problem still remains. Any ideas on how to resolve this issue? Is something like CoolBook to set a fixed, specific CPU speed the only option? Thanks

  6. I'm trying to create a dual boot of Windows XP and Mac OS 10.6 on my Acer Aspire One netbook. I have installed Windows XP and Mac OS X on separate partitions on the hard drive and they both run. However, I can only access the Mac OS X partition from my USB Mac OS X install disc/pen drive. Loading the installer from the pen drive allows me to use Chameleon to boot into OS X. Booting normally goes straight to Windows XP and selecting an operating system from the BIOS only allows me to choose XP. I have changed/flagged the the Mac OS X partition as the active drive using terminal from the install disc but it still won't boot from the hard drive. How can I use Chameleon or Chimera as the default boot loader for both my Windows XP partition and Mac OS X partition? Thanks

    Acer Aspire One Dual Boot

    I'm trying to install Mac OS 10.6.0 on an Acer Aspire One netbook with a simple dual boot of Windows XP and Mac OS X. I am following these tutorials to get this set up: http://basshead.word...-one-aoa150zg5/ http://wiki.osx86pro...imple_Dual_Boot I have repartitioned the hard drive using MiniTool Partition Wizard in Windows XP with a 100GB Windows XP partition, a 5GB Acer Recovery partition (pre-installed) and a 45GB FAT32 partition for Mac OS X. I have been able to run the Mac OS X installer and get to Disc Utility to format the 45GB partition as Mac OS X (Journaled) HFS+, but the installer refuses to install on the partition because the hard drive is not formatted in the GUID Partition Scheme. It seems the hard drive is formatted as MBR. I have tried to create a partition in Disc Utility when the 45GB is unallocated space but again the installer requires a reformat of the hard drive. I would prefer not to reformat the entire drive again because I do not want to lose the Acer Recovery Partition and my current install of Windows XP. It may also be difficult to install Windows XP on a GUID Partition Scheme Hard Drive. Is there any way that I can install Mac OS 10.6.0 on this partition without reformatting the whole hard drive in the GUID Partition Scheme? Could this method work? http://www.macbreaker.com/2012/02/mac-os-x-on-mbr-partition.html Thanks
