    HP Mini 311 - Support Questions/Requests

    I know this is an older post but i hae a quick question.....i am consider getting this cord rather than use an external bluetooth, i was wondering did you have to use any antenna's for this card since you used it in the full height slot?

    Question, did you use the CDBoot method to install, or Usb method? Are you dual booting or single booting? It was my understanding that you need 3gb for successful hibernation (including having ethernet still work upon resume) but sleep wroks fine with 1gb, or 2gb.

    Quick question, has anyone run into an issue with screen sharing? I've tried to screen share with the HP 311 and the screen keeps coming up black instead of showing my mini's screen. A couple times its said reconnecting but i can never see the desktop of the hp 311?

    I ran into the same issue on my first install, did you follow the directions in the first thread to a T? Did you use the boot CD or install by USB? My first go round i installed with USB and noticed that once i installed to 10.6.2 i was no longer able to boot up the install from the USB, this was because the original USB was booting with the mach_kernel (or at least listed this way in the boot.plist) while the 10.6.2 required the mach_atom kernel to boot correctly. Being that i had extracted the boot files from the HF1 iso, i was unsure of how to change the boot.plist to find the correct location of the atom kernel. In the end i had to reinstall, but i installed windows 7 on the dual boot before upgrading to 10.6.2.

    Thank you so much for the quick reply! Two more quick questions: Proto's instructions that you are referring to are to flash the wireless card for it to show up as a stock airport? Does sound work through both the speakers and the audio port? Thanks again

    Im about a couple weeks away from finally ordering my HP 311 and i just want to verify some things: 1. Is the stock G- Wireless card half height and located in the WLAN slot? 2. If i buy a Dell 1510 Wireless N card that is half height, can i just replace it with the original wireless card, hook up the antenna's and be good to go with the wireless, or do i still need to buy extensions even if its half height in the Wlan slot? 3. With the Dell 1510 do i need to edit any kext's or will it automatically work? Thanks

    This shouldn't affect one of the Appleish cards (like the Dell 1510) or can the OS still tell the difference?

    Thanks for the reply! Not to sound like a moron, but am i right in thinking that the extensions would run from the current antenna cables that run from the mobo, then attach to the new card? Is this because the current cables wouldn't reach the full slot location? (I dont have a 311 infront of me to tell, though im going to pick one up once the wifi deal is figured out for Snow Leopard

    What would the downside of having it in the full sized slot vs the half size?

    Thanks. Deleted the mkext, and added those two kexts to the extensions folder and im still getting that same error as before, not sure why? Hmm seems like its also looking for some kext files not present:
