  1. Post #447 of this thread is quoted above. The link in the quote is for the boot cd. Hope this helps everyone looking for it.
  2. Jason, The 110 model only has an 8gb solid state drive. In other words it is bare bare minimum for installing OSX and 16GB minimum is the lowest most would go. I installed OSX (iatkos 10.5.7) on an HP mini with an 8GB drive, but there wasn't really any room for anything else. IF you were to install it on an 8GB drive, make sure to have an external hard drive or some SD cards for holding your files, etc. I ended up converting the HP mini back to the factory win XP install and sold it to someone who wanted it. On my Acer A150, the 160 GB drive is nice and roomy. It is set up as a triple boot with the chameleon screen giving choices for OSX, win XP, and Ubuntu. My son wants me to set it up as a quad boot, but I don't feel like going through the work of changing my set up again. Hope this helps.
  3. http://rapidshare.com/files/35189254/boinkytwo_bootpm.iso is the link to the boot cd.
  4. the bootcd link is earlier in this thread. The darwin boot loader is part of the OSX installation (whichever you are using ideneb etc). If your using iatkos there is the chameleon bootloader instead (I prefer chameleon - but that is just my opinion ).
  5. It is definitely interesting working between the 3 OS's. Having wireless for all 3 is definitely nice. My son started commenting how he wanted a 4th on the A150 and all I could do was to start laughing about it. Phil, glad to hear that you got it working.
  6. AeroWV - are you doing this part of the tutorial? Basically after you choose where to install iatkos from keep pressing F8.
  7. the link for the boot cd is in post #447 of this thread.
  8. I find it easiest to install iatkos from a dvd using a usb dvd drive.
  9. the link for the boot cd is in post #447 of this thread.
  10. Before reinstalling, when you put the iatkos dvd in (I use a usb dvd drive) go to disk utilities, and make sure to erase the drive before reinstalling (and choose mac os x extended). IIRC - if the drive isn't erased before reinstalling it could cause a problem - though I could be wrong.
  11. for the keyboard did you choose this in the install options: "Expand PS/2 Mouse/Keyboard check Voodoo PS/2 Driver With Trackpad" Also which HP mini model are you installing too?
  12. hutcho - sounds like a good mod. If you decide to do a triple boot with ubuntu - use the xp drivers for the wireless card with ndiswrapper. That way you can use wireless with ubuntu too (just did this today on the A150).
  13. Well it looks like it could be something with the video card. The following is from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quartz_Compositor "Quartz Extreme Mac OS X v10.2 introduced Quartz Extreme: graphics processor (GPU) acceleration for the Quartz Compositor. With Quartz Extreme, no central processor (CPU) cycles are utilized for scene composition. Quartz Compositor runs using the graphics processor (GPU) by encapsulating each rendered backing store in an OpenGL texture map or surface. The GPU then composes the surfaces and maps to provide the final image, which is delivered to its frame buffer. Quartz Extreme only uses OpenGL commands, and requires a graphics card connected to an AGP 2X or faster bus (including AGP 4X, 8X, and PCI Express), supporting textures and maps of arbitrary size, since many of the renderers have no size limitation (Quartz 2D for example).[3] It is automatically enabled on Mac systems with one of the following types of graphics cards:[4] AMD (ATI) Radeon, AGP-based, 16MB VRAM minimum, or better NVIDIA GeForce2 MX, 16MB VRAM minimum, or better QuartzGL QuartzGL (Quartz2d extreme in OS X 10.4 Tiger) is GPU acceleration for the Quartz2d API. It is not enabled by default in either OS X Tiger or Leopard. It is, however, possible to enable it in both versions, using the "quartz debug" application which is included in the OS X developer tools. However, because Apple does not support using QuartzGL currently, QuartzGL will be disabled once again upon quitting the Quartz Debug utility. A partially-supported workaround is to force quit the Quartz Debug application, which will leave QuartzGL enabled system-wide. In Leopard, it is also possible to add QuartzGLEnabled as an entry to an applications info.plist, to enable it application-wise. Note that QuartzGL must be enabled system-wise first in order for "QuartzGLEnabled" to have any effect application-wise. All graphics cards capable of supporting Core Image also support QuartzGL." I'm not sure if the card on the A150 would compare to the above requirements for quartz extreme or not http://www.intel.com/products/chipsets/gma950/index.htm hutcho - glad to hear it works for you.
  14. Hutcho - let me know how it goes for you. I hope it all works out for you to have a successful dual boot set up with XP and iatkos.
  15. From what I read before installing OS X the original card (Atheros) isn't supported. I did read somewhere online that there is a "fix" so it will work - but I didn't try it as there were reports of it not working 100% or of a kernel panic happening, etc. Okay with a little searching the following might help. Maybe some info for the 4965 can be found at http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=84072 and http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=71779 Maybe for the atheros you could check out http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=178341 or http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=8829 or http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=33089
