  1. Hi, i have an Aspire One L150 Netbook with Intel Atom N270 CPU When I used Leopard, I booted with cpus=2 and got SystemProfiler to show up 2 Processors but under SnowLeopard (10.6.8) there seems to be no difference when booting with cpus=2. SystemProfiler always shows Number of Processors: 1 How can I figure out if SL is using both cores? How can I tell SL to use both cores? Hope this is an easy question but my searched didn't come up with useful results. If you need additional Information, please ask. Yours Cenar Edit: By the way: ActivityMonitor shows two Graphs for CPU usage. Is this a reliable indicator that both are used?
  2. Thanks for your reply but I don't think I will give up that soon. Have tried to boot a Snow Leopard installation of my external USB-HD where I have added some kexts for SB 600 Southbridge (SB600_SATA_ATA) and included the preboot.dmg and Extensions-folder from a SB600 compatible Empire EFI (found here) in /Extra Now System boots from external HD but hangs after a while. When booting with -v -f i see it hangs after following message: Patched DMI Table Any Hints where to search for the next step in fixing this? Thanks! @Nick14 When you say X1250 isn't supported, does it mean there would be no visible display or just restricted resolution and/or no Quartz etc.? Greetings Cenar
  3. Hi, I am unsure if it is suitable to ask a question like that but I am desperately trying to install OS X on my Acer Aspire L5100 mini-PC but i can't even get the InstallationDVD (Last tried Snow Leopard 10.6.1-10.6.2 SSE2/SSE3 Intel AMD by Leohazard) to boot. Always getting " Waiting for boot volume with UUID..." and then - nothing If anybody has any helpful links or suggestions this would be highly appreciated. Here are the specs of the aspire l5100 CPU: AMD Athlon X2 BE-2400 2,3GHz (Brisbane, Sockel AM2,1000 Mhz FSB, 2x512 kB Cache) Chipset: AMD 690G Chipsatz, AMD SB600 Southbridge ( 1000 Mhz FSB) GPU: onboard ATI Radeon Xpress 1250 HDD: Hitachi DeskStar 7K500 500GB (3,5", 7200 U/m, 8MB Cache, S-ATA) Optical: Pioneer DVD-ROM DVR-K06RS Slot-in DVD ±R/RW/ROM 8x 8x 8x (Slimline) Audio: Realtek ALC888S (HDA) LAN: Realtek RTL8168/8111 10/100/1000 MBit Thanks in advance, Yours Cenar
