    I am not sure what you meant by "it won't let you click the DVD icon". Did you try using the cursors (arrows) and enter keys?

    Then it is either your 11/09GA CD (not burned properly) or your dvd drive. One of my dvd drives, would refuse to load the 11/09 RC2 cd previously. Another drive read it no problem. Then 11/09GA came it, and both dvd drives read it alright.

    Thanks for the guide, I think it will be helpful to many. Could someone clarify what the LighstScribe related software and nVidia CUDA 3.0 are for in Step 4c? I figured the Lightscribe is for the dvd burner, what about nVidia CUDA? What does it do, and is it optional?

    There's some instructions in flashing the firmware with a USB stick on the project thread (under FIRMWARE section): http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=195381 It didn't work as described for me. I had to burn the file onto a CD for the bios update to find the file.

    The antenna arrived, and I put it inside the mini 311 today. It works well. The range was OK, about 6 feet. Not super far, but more than enough to tether with my iphone in my pocket of belt holster when the mini 311 was in front of me. Without the antenna, the iphone had to be right underneath the computer (touching the bottom body) for it to pair.

    ... or just buy a USB dvd drive, use it and return it. Pay the $5-10 restocking fee if you have to.

    I ordered this antenna. It is yet to arrive due to holidays. http://cgi.ebay.ca/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewIt...2#ht_527wt_1167

    I am not 100% sure, but I thought I read somewhere that you do need 3GB of ram for sleep to work properly. This thread is getting long, it's virtually impossible to find anything from the old posts...

    Yes. Please refer to my earlier posting regarding installation of Dell 370 bluetooth card. http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...5374&st=529 If you use a different card, look up the product id and vendor id under system profiler, and then convert them from hex to dec (google for convert). Insert them instead of the numbers I used.

    You can download HP Wireless Assistant from the HP website. It allows you to turn on/off WLAN and WWAN slots.

    1) Enter the Bios and it'll tell you which version it is. 2) Read post #567 http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...5374&st=566

    Following theproto's instruction you partitioned your hard drive with GUID Partition Table (GPT). Windows 7 will work with GPT, but Windows XP will not.

    My understanding is pin 20 defines the on/off states of the card; e.g., when using Bios to disable/enable it, pressing the wifi button, or with software control (Windows). Typing pin 20 forces it to be 'on' only. When the system setting is in the 'off' state, and without pin 20 taped, OS X does not see the card. In this case, the taping will fix the problem. Alternatively, booting in Windows to turn 'on' the card will work too. I am currently using the Dell 1510 wifi without taping pin 20. I have a Windows 7/OS X dual-boot set up. After I have the card turned on, it works fine in OS X. I just have to remember not to touch the wifi button above the keyboard. If you completely removed Windows from your system, then taping is the easy solution. I tried it with scotch tape before. Cut a narrow strip of about 1 mm, 1 inch long. Use something pointy to guide the end of the tape onto pin 20, and then run the rest of the tape upward onto the body of the card. Don't bother cutting it. To see a picture of where pin 20 is, just google: 'Taping pin 20'.

    I never get 5 hours running Windows 7 either, I get 3, may be 3.5 hours at most. Now I have a question about 2-finger scrolling in OS X. Has anyone tried this on their mini 311? http://macyourpc.com/2009/03/11/two-finger...our-hackintosh/

    Looks like both of you missed my post on page 27. Yes, it does work in Snow Leopard beautifully. You can even control with OS X to turn off the card when not needed. http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...5374&st=529
