  1. ResX, Just to be clear — this is an Ideapad s12 integrated Intel graphics and not the new NIVIDA Ion, correct?
  2. HP Mini 311 - Project Thread (Part I - OLD)

    For anyone out there still struggling with which pin is pin 20, I've attached two photos, one of a half-height card and one of a full height card. Neither of these pins have been taped, but identifying which is the right pin should no longer be an issue. (note that neither of these are the exact cards under discussion)
  3. HP Mini 311 - Project Thread (Part I - OLD)

    All the back and forth on the wifi cards has me rather confused. To clarify (sorry to be the idiot in the room, but someone's gotta be, right?): The wifi card that comes with the 311 isn't supported by Snow Leopard. But one could easily swap the card out for one that is, such as a Dell/Broadcom 1490 or similar? If that's really all it takes to fix, then the only thing holding me back from buying a 311 is audio out. So I hereby place a $10 bounty on getting audio working properly. I know $10 ain't much, but it's better than nothing... I can probably up that a bit if I can find a buyer for my Wind... Oh — and thanks to everyone putting in the frustrating work to get things working!

    Provided I can find a buyer for my dual-boot MSI Wind, I'll probably be ordering a 311 soon. Should that prove to be the case, I'll be mostly useless for helping figure things out, but I'd be more than happy to take the lead on writing a guide that synthesizes everything you guys come up with. The hackintosh community, much like the open source community, doesn't always place a premium on good documentation — but I'd love to try to correct that in this instance.

    Small world... I'm from Edina (but live in Albuquerque now). Theproto told me he lives in Woodbury. Must be some sort fo freaky appeal that the 311 has for Minnesotans. Though I just stumbled across the Acer Aspire 1410, an 11.6" screen machine with a Core2 Solo, I might see if that's easier to hackintosh than a 311 and get that instead. On the fence.
  6. HP Mini 311 - Project Thread (Part I - OLD)

    Glad I'm not the only one following this thread who's in way over his head! I have an MSI Wind that I managed to get set up as a dual-boot XP and Leopard, but getting that accomplished required almost no technical knowledge as there's a distro of OSX floating out there that's been tailored to the Wind. I would love to buy a 311 and help out the hardcore folks here if there was a way I could contribute, but I'm not sure how that would be possible right now. Maybe once things are a little more figured out, I could do a nice easy-as-123 manual for getting SL installed (I can write!), but my tech knowledge of EFI, DSDT, kexts and whatnot is basically zero.

    I'm sure this is low on most people's priority lists, but... anyone had a chance to check this out further? Are adachis' suspicions correct?
  8. HP Mini 311 - Project Thread (Part I - OLD)

    Any idea about the headphone/mic jack? I'm strongly considering selling my MSI Wind to get a 311, but it's absolutely essential that I be able to use the headphone jack to listen to things while on an airplane.
  9. I have an MSI Wind but would gladly give it up for this — if, that is, everything on it can be made to work as well as it does on the MSI. Which seems unlikely, as most netbooks don't hackintosh nearly as well as the Wind does from what I can tell. Only thing I don't get is why HP didn't make the keyboard larger — the 311 is touting as having a "94% size" keyboard, but from the looks of the photos it could have been made to be 100% size if it went edge-to-edge like the Wind. Seems like an odd design decision.
