    HP Mini 311 - Project Thread (Part I - OLD)

    I don't have my Mini yet, so I'm kind of winging this based on the service manual, but... The service manual says there is a Wifi light in the upper left of the keyboard (integrated with the button, I guess). Is the light on? I know on my MSI Wind when I first replaced the Wifi card, it was set to not be "on" for some reason, and I had to turn it on for the first time very early in the boot process (at chameleon or immediately thereafter). If I turned it on once the OS loaded, the light would come on but the Airport still refused to work. Once I loaded it once correctly, it worked on subsequent boots, it was just the first time. Long story short, the computer must "boot" with the Wifi turned on before OS X will allow it to be used. It can be confusing because the card is still detected and shown on the menu bar if the card is off, it will just refuse to turn on via software methods.
  2. Does anyone happen to know what the difference is between the GCLF2 and the GCLF? I tried iSynapse's driver pack on a 10.5.0 retail install and it made my computer unbootable. I'll be trying the other pack that someone else posted higher up, but my impression was that the only difference between the boards was the CPU.
  3. Can anyone tell me if a full reboot is necessary to test a layout, or can I just unload and reload the kexts? (I'm assuming I'd have to unload HDAEnable and AppleHDA kext. Can anyone clarify this? EDIT: A few more questions: -Does anyone know what causes the volume slider to be disabled in some cases? Is that a matter of switching codec? Layout? -My codec layout doesn't have the * for the mixer selectors, and the output seems to be connected to multiple mixers. How do I know which to use? My codec is attached. Actually, it does have *, but only for the front connectors, which are off of a motherboard header that I'm not using. ALC_662_codec2.txt

    ALC861-VD (0x10ec0862) working

    I don't know if this will help, but here is my codec dump from my toshiba laptop with 861-VD running Ubuntu 8.0.4 (codec#0 is probably what you want, but I attached codec#1 as well just in case) codec0.txt codec1.txt

    Modified boot-132 Bootloader

    This is currently working in the sense that it boots my install of 10.5.4, but I'm running into issues going further than that, so I had some questions 1) Should extensions from the initrd image show up in the Extensions list in System Info? I'm trying to fix my PS2 trackpad, and I know PS2 support is loaded (since my PS2 keyboard is working), but I don't see any of the PS2 extensions (ACPIPS2Nub, PS2Controller,etc) listed in the Extensions list. 2) Are there any permissions requirements for the initrd image? I was adding IntelEnhancedSpeedStep.kext to the image, and it won't appear from there, however it works fine when I add it to my regular /System/Library/Extensions folder. I even got it working in the regular Extensions folder, then moved it to initrd, but it still doesn't seem to want to work.

  7. I imaged the retail DVD to a USB drive, and ensured it was working as a boot device by testing it on a macbook. Is there any way to boot off a USB drive instead of the internal one using the USB bootloader? EDIT: Also, is there any programs on windows that can edit the initrd.img file?
  8. Not everyone has these toys, but if you have an Xbox 360 (or other Windows Media Extender) and a computer running Vista you can stream netflix movies from media center to your 360. Now I watch movies on my TV instead of the computer. Just thought I'd mention it in case it was a possibility for you. http://myweb.cableone.net/eluttmann04/proj...lix/default.htm
  9. You need something to set Finder to show invisible Folders....I believe Onyx has the option to, though I could be wrong. Once you do that, you can see all the invisible folders on the DVD. I believe that the install packages are usually in /System/Installation/Packages on the install DVD. Just hunt around and find the right one, and double click to install it.
  10. Does sleep work? I guess I could worry about SpeedStep too but with the Atom it barely seems like there is a point

    LeoX86 installation with intel Mac

    Yes, I've done exactly this using a macbook and USB. 1) Install retail OS to USB 2) Copy dsmos.kext to Extensions 3) Optionally copy AppleSMBios.kext 4) mv -R AppleEFIRuntime... and AppleIntelCPU.... kexts . kext.vanilla 5) Make any additional kext mods, as needed 6) Install EFI to the USB drive

    GMA X3000

    I have a P5B board, running with EFI and so far have had no luck. What I've tried: Paulicat's Natit, tried 3 different versions with very crude hacks/tweaks. All 3 had the info.plist updated from the X3100 to the X3000 Device ID (8086,27A2 I think) -One with the Info.plist hacked only -One with the Info.plist hacked, and devid for the X3100 -> X3000 in the Natit binary -One with the Info.plist hacked, and devid for the X3100 -> X3000 and the string "X3100" -> "X3000" in the Natit binary I changed the device ID in the X3100FB.kext (the only place I could find the PCI device ID specified). They all loaded, but I didn't get any supported resolutions or QE/CI. Graphics always shows "No kext loaded". My next step is to try sticking the gfx string for X31000 in the boot.plist as specified by the PC_EFI instructions, to see if that might work. Sorry that I have no good news, but I thought some other people might have some input for other suggestions that I might try, or at least know what doesn't work.

    Users with GMA 950 / X3100 Real Macs needed here

    Does anyone know if simply replacing the device ID is enough to switch Natit to use a different card? I have a desktop with GMA X3000 and want to see if I can pull off using Leo's X3100's driver. I can easily switch the Info.plist, but looking at the Natit binary, I saw some string references to "GMAX3100" specifically. It would be awesome to have X3000's supported based off a hack of the X3100 driver. paulicat mentioned it early in the thread, but I haven't seen anyone mention it since. Edit: PCI device is 8086,29A2 if you're feeling especially generous
  14. So if I did this: Use Disk Utility on vanilla DVD to create MBR layout and HFS+ partition on USB drive Use Pacifist to install Leopard to USB drive Use startupfiletool on USB drive That won't create a sufficient scenario to boot from it?
  15. Thanks, that was another guess I had, but forgot to mention it. I'm used to the DVD releases "automagically" doing that stuff, so I forget how they set up the drive/install the boot loader/etc. I guess I'll try doing a pacifist install from the leopard DVD to an MBR HFS+ partition and see if that helps.
