  1. So I've managed to somehow get a triple boot working between Windows 7 Home Premium, Snow Leopard, and Ubuntu 10.04 on my netbook. My hard drive is formatted as GPT, I have Chameleon 2.0 RC4 installed on my EFI partition, and I'm using it as my primary bootloader. Snow Leopard and Ubuntu boot up just fine, but when I choose windows, I'm almost instantly hit with this error: File: \Boot\BCD Status: 0xc0000225 Info: An error occured while attempting to read the boot configuration data. Is there a particular fix to this error? I've tried booting into ubuntu and replacing the \Boot folder with a backup I made earlier, but it didn't change anything. I used gptsync in ubuntu to create my hybrid MBR, then booted back to Snow Leopard to re-write boot to the MBR, if that helps at all.
  2. Kextcache issues... I think

    boot with -v and tell us where the startup hangs.
  3. SL on Asus EeePC 1005HA?

    Hey guys, I had a Leopard install working a little while back, but I've wanted to try and get Snow Leopard to run, so I backed everything up, wiped my hard drive and booted to iPC 10.5.6. I then used disk utility to convert my hard drive to GPT and I repartitioned my hard drive. I went ahead with the Leopard install to a small 8GB partition and installed the retail disk from Leopard to my larger SL partition. I also installed Chameleon to the 200MB EFI partition at the beginning of the diskand loaded just the basic kexts to get it booting and to allow me to use the keyboard and trackpad. Eventually, I managed to get SL to boot up, but I only had keyboard support. That's issue #1. I've tried both ApplePS2Controller and VoodooPS2, but I only get keyboard support with both of those. I'm currently using an external mouse to get things done, but I would really love to get the trackpad working. The second issue I noticed was that my resolution isn't native. No big deal, I'll just use the old GMA950 kext and toss my old EFI String into the new com.apple.Boot.plist file. That didn't work. Neither did any of the kexts I searched for online. So issue #2 is no graphics support. The next two issues are smaller things I can live without. #3, I got a new Dell 1510 halfheight in the mail today, installed it and Wifi works beautifully. Apparently that card has Bluetooth, but I'm not seeing anything in the BIOS or in OSX. #4 audio. I haven't really messed with audio support too much yet, but if anyone has a straightforward solution, I'll gladly try it. to summarize: #1 - no trackpad #2 - no QE/CI or full res. #3 - bluetooth #4 - audio Could anyone possibly help me in fixing these issues? I'm a relative noob to the hackintosh scene, but I do know how to install kexts, mount the EFI partition, modify a dsdt.dml file and compile it to a dsdt.aml file, etc. Thanks in advance! EDIT: And, minutes after I posted this, after hours of searching, I just read somewhere that you can't install the graphics or audio kexts to /E/E, and that you have to install them to /S/L/E instead... I'll see if that fixes it. EDIT2: Nope, didn't fix a thing...
  4. I got my netbook to triple boot Windows 7 Home Premium, OS X 10.5.6 (planning on upgrading to 10.6 soon), and Ubuntu 9.10. I now have 100GB on 7, 80GB on OS X, and 40GB on Ubunutu, as well as a 4 GB swap file and an 8GB transfer partition (for all partitions)
  5. Atheros AR8131/AR8132

    Any updates on this Labidus? I want to get at least LAN working on my 1005HA, so I have some form of internet besides iPhone tethering.
  6. Dual Boot with existing Win7 partition?

    You will first need to get a dual booter (such as EasyBCD) on your Windows 7 partition. I suggest having 2 partitions ready before booting to the USB flash drive. There are several guides online dealing with setting up a dual booter, use one of them. Then boot into USB and use Utilities -> Disk Utility to format your second partition into a Journaled partition.
  7. Broadcom 570x and 575x

    I have the exact same issue with my XPS 720. Any help at all would be appreciated. I'm running iPC 10.5.6 vanilla if that makes any difference. VEN 14e4 DEV 167a (rev 02)
