  1. Trying to get 1024x600 on Asus 1000H

    RESOLVED! With help from here: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=178926
  2. 10.5.8 GMA950 -27AE for eeePC and others

    THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU schnullimaus!! You are my HERO! I now have my Asus eeePC 1000H working at 1024x600 on 10.5.8! YAHOO!!!!!! I've tried so many damn methods and none worked. In fact they sent my OS X to a blue screen with nothing on it. Just remember, on mine the hex codes were actually 8680a227 and not 8086a227. Still.. I fixed it
  3. Howdy! I've installed iAtkos 10.5.7 on my Asus eeepC 1000H. It autodetects and runs at 1024x600. I used Software Update to go to 10.5.8 and that worked fine, but the resolution is at 800x600 and no matter what I do it won't budge. I've installed SwitchResX but no matter what settings I use from various forums and blogs it remains at 800x600. I've tried various kexts but they mostly make the screen boot up all blue and I can't use the Netbook at all. I tried a DSDT.aml which was created for BIOS 2102 for 10.5.8 but it made the screen go grey with streaky diagonal lines. Any help fixing it would be amazing. My iTunes needs 1024 width at least to see most of the options. I know I could try the scaling trick but that'd blur the text, etc. Cheers!
  4. Kalyway 10.5.2 -> (directly to...) Kalyway 10.5.5?

    Anyone with AMD tried it?
  5. But what about on AMD systems??
  6. kalyway 10.5.5 update?

    I tried Apple Software Update on Kalyway on an AMD PC and it failed so I reinstalled 10.5.2. Not sure if you need the netkas deletion hack or what.
  7. Kalyway 10.5.2 kernel panic

    Looks a bit similar to an issue I had. You could try turning ACPI off in the BIOS.
  8. After trying many distros I re-flashed my BIOS with 1006 (the latest from Asus) -- which I had already flashed it with. Windows XP still can't install the driver for ACPI, but I downloaded Kalyway 10.5.2 again and booted the DVD and installed 10.5.2 successfully. Sound works. Network worked after the forcedeth patch. All is GO! Now trying to work out how to update to 10.5.5
  9. Mac OS X 10.5.5 Kalyway COMBO UPDATE

    I'd like to update from Kalyway 10.5.2 to 10.5.5 using one of these methods, but I don't see anyone listed here with an AMD processor :-/
  10. I've tried both the latest 10.5.2 Kalyway and Leo4All but both kernel panic on bootup of the DVD. I get It's the ACPI kext. I've tried booting with -s and platform=X86PC and other safe modes, etc. I just can't boot the DVD to begin the installation. My Asus K8N4-E motherboard has the latest drive Asus released for it a couple of years ago (1006). Do I need to patch the ISO somehow with another ACPI kext? I ran 10.4.1 fine years ago. The CPU is Athlon 3000+ only with SSE2. TIA.
  11. Looks like OSX still has issues with SATA drives. One of the guys at work has troubles too. While installing, OSX can't even find the AF partition.
  12. Now added MacVidia 1b5 driver and have 1280x960 @ 75Hz running nicely
  13. Email checker?

    Anyone know a freeware email checker like Mailwasher for OSX? Using either POP or IMAP to connect to my email account(s) and I can easily mark which are spam or not, learn about spam emails, check blackholes & spamlists, etc then let me delete what I don't want. Cheers.!
  14. Boot into Windows XP. Use Partition magic to set aside some space. MAKE SURE THE NEW PARTITION IS NOT PART OF THE “EXTENDED PARTITION” AND CREATES A LOGICAL DRIVE. Logical drives in extended partitions are no good to OSX and it won’t work. What I did was I have two Windows Partitions with Drive C: and D:. I resized C: up by 13 Gb then resized it down by 13Gb. This leaves 13Gb of empty space. OSX takes up about 5Gb to install so I just left 7Gb for installing apps and games, etc. Pick a size you like. Go into a DOS Box “cmd”. Type diskpart Type “select disk 0” Type “list partition” This will show you what partitions you already have. You won’t see the 13Gb (or whatever size you pick) one as it’s not a partition yet but an empty spot on the HDD. Type “create partition primary id=af” This will create an AF type partition and fill up all the unused space on your HDD. Type “exit” Reboot the PC with the OSX DVD in the DVDROM drive. You will see a grey screen with the Apple logo and a spinning circle thing. It will change to a blue screen which may have the rainbow beachball spinning. Next you will see the intro screen for installation. Click Next or OK or whatever and agree to their T&C. It will eventually get to “Choose a partition to install OSX on” and won’t find any. Go up to the top of the screen and use the menus to find the Disk utilities one (cant remember what its called). When that runs, select your HDD and click the button marked ERASE. It will list partitions on your HDD. Find the 13Gb one you set aside in Windows. It will show it as “Mac OS Journalled” formatted partition. If you click on others they will come up as NTFS formatted or FAT32 or whatever you use. You can type a name for your partition (instead of disk0s2). I just called mine “OSX86” Click on ERASE and it will ask if you are sure you want to do that. Click YES or OK. It will mount the partition and erase it. Once that’s finished close the Disk utes application and your Install screen below it will now show that partition as available to install OSX on it. Select that partition and hit NEXT. If you see the word “CUSTOM” or “CUSTOMISE” at any time going thru the install process now, select it and deselect the printer drivers you don’t want (several hundred megs per printer driver) and any additional languages you don’t want. It will install the BSD Base system and all the stuff it needs, along with iCal and iTunes, etc. At the end, it will install an update to upgrade your install from 10.4.4 to 10.4.5. It will then optimise the partition and reboot. On my install, when you hit the REBOOT button or let it time out 30s and auto-reboot, my PC locks up. I just hit the POWER button and then turn it back on. You will now boot up into the Darwin Bootloader which will display your OS’s. WindowsXP (NTFS) and OSX. OSX is selected by default and will boot after a 10s delay which you can change later on. Funnily enough, if you select WindowsXP it displays a message “Boot foreign OS”. I liked that. Now, you boot into OSX. It will probably flood your screen with white text on a black background as it loads the kext drivers. If you are lucky it will now boot up and you get to select your Country and what Keyboard type you have. Then, it asks for your APPLE-ID which you probably don’t have. Hit Continue to skip that. It will ask for your name, address, email address, phone number. I just typed in {censored} for that. Next it will boot. ISSUES: The first time I booted the install DVD it crashed with a Kernel Panic. I found out on this forum I had to update my BIOS. Then, it worked. It gave an ACPI error. ISSUES: I have a Microsoft Ergonomic keyboard. It has PS2 and USB cables. I used to have both plugged in all the time. Windows doesn’t mind this but OSX does. Unplug the PS2 and just have USB and it works. Apparently there is also an issue if you try to run a PS2 keyboard with a USB mouse. Use both USB if you can. ISSUES: It doesn’t seem to like my built-in network card. It’s an NForce and Apple don’t support NForce network cards as the Intel motherboards they sell don’t have NForce. I will need to whack in a spare card. PS: I'm not responsible if you f*** up your PC using my method
  15. Navtive install help needed.

    I have this mobo and it works fine. I had to update the BIOS to get it to work tho. It kept giving a Kernel Panic about ACPI. I installed 10.4.4 with the 10.4.5 updater.
