  1. Installing Lion DP 2 on Celeron?

    c0nvexity155, Are you using any additional kext for the Intel 4500 HDM or are you settling for 1024x768?

  3. Awesome work here. Thank you. *EDIT Will there be a 10.6.7 kernel update? 10.6.7 Atom Kernel
  4. I have a broken LCD on my netbook. The LVDS cable correctly fits in the display for my iMac which was gutted when the logic board caps went bad. I have tossed the logic board. I still have the display, the power supply and the inverter. I need to know the voltage that each pin on the inverter takes to power the back light on the iMac display directly from the power supply. The following links may be helpful to someone who speaks French. http://forum.macbidouille.com/index.php?sh...p;#entry3069916 http://users.skynet.be/fa835376/pas%20a%20pas.pdf
  5. Asus 1201N Installation and support

    I think that there is a huge difference with 4GBs of RAM. I personally did the BIOS update first. Then installed the RAM. Then DSDT and Kext utility. Following this guide and reading every post I have had no issues getting everything working 100% (LAN excluded as I never use it) Thanks for the video. I got my card in from DELL.com yesterday and had a very stress free install with no problems as a result. The credit card trick worked great to separate the housing without damage. I would stress to anyone about to upgrade the HD or Wireless to look carefully at the video and the pictorial guide. I would also recommend paying close attention to How the keyboard tabs release in the picture to avoid damage. Another best practice would be to grab a pen, 2 sheets of paper and some tape. Draw a simple diagram of layout and screw placement on the underside of the NetBook on one sheet and the opposite side (under the keyboard) on the other sheet. Tape your screws as you remove them to the corresponding circles that you have drawn on the paper so that you remember their placement. Also have a very clean and well lit area to do this. Have a precision screwdriver set. And if you are not aware of E.S.D. than please read up on it

  7. Asus 1201N Installation and support

    My Chameleon is intact. On my system, by default, the Windows Bootloader loads after the ASUS BIOS splash screen. It shows a black screen with "Windows", "Jolicloud" and "Mac OS X". If I arrow down to "Mac OSX" and hit enter it then takes me to the Chameleon boot loader which defaults to my OSX partition. There may be a cleaner way to do it with just Chameleon. I was going for simple and stable, so I am content I agree that "screwing things up" is a good fun way to learn. I would not feel the same if it was my primary system.
  8. Asus 1201N Installation and support

    I had that issue with the touch pad after I installed the Voodoo Audio kext. I ended up using kext helper to reinstall the VoodooHDA and the touchpad kexts and everything is fine now. Everything is working perfect on my ASUS 1201NB (4GBS RAM) with exception to the built in WiFi. I am triple booting MacOSX 10.6.2 with Jolicloud (Ubuntu) and Windows 7 Ultimate x86 I had to try a few times to get my triple boot with the same 3 OS'es just right. What ended up working is 1) Using the OSX86 USB Netbook Installer 10.6 to make my 3 partitions with a GUID partition table. 2) Then installing OSX. 3) Then installing NTFS3G in OSX to format the Win 7 partition (NTFS). 4) Then installing Windows 7 to the OSX created NTFS partition (as is). 5) Then I installed Jolicloud (Ubuntu). At this point I could not boot into OSX at all. Even with a boot loader disc. 6) I installed Easy BCD to Windows 7 and added an entry for the Mac partition. 7) I then used the Diagnose feature in Easy BCD to repair the OSX partition to make it bootable. I think it essentially wrote to the Windows boot loader and OSX to chain boot properly.
  9. ASUS 1101 HA + Leopard? is it possible?

    OSX86 will not install on the Intel GMA 500 AFAIK.
  10. Can't install on Asus P5KPL-CM

    Thanks for the reply. Are you using onboard video or did you use a card?
  11. Can't install on Asus P5KPL-CM

    Did you get anywhere with this?
  12. Is it ok to update to 10.5.7?

    Did you ever find the answer to this question? What about the BIOS mods? Will any of those work on this mobo? I bought one and my iDeneb 1.4 hangs at the grey apple logo screen. I am sure that there are some settings in the BIOS that will remedy this.
  13. XFX NVIDIA GEFORCE 9400 GT 512 - QE problem

    I have it installed with 10.5.7 (iDeneb 1.4 updated) on an Intel DG45ID MOBO. The DVI dual link is pushing my Dell 22" LCD. My res is only 1024x768. I am fiddling with getting it to work with OSX86 Tools, Kext Helper and a few injectors/kexts that I have downloaded. I will post back with what works and what works well. A review for the card on tigerdirect.com says it does work.
