    EeePC 1000H Snow Leopard 10.6.4 Tutorial

    Everything is working fine for me except attaching an external monitor. When I attach an external monitor before booting, I get a kernel panic. If I attach after booting, it does not recognize the external monitor. Any ideas on getting an external monitor to work with this setup?
  2. Can you expand on 3 and 4. Where can I get the files you identified in section 3, especially the patched ones? Also, how should I edit those two plist files? What should they be changed to? Finally, whats the easiest way to genera a DSDT file?
  3. How exactly do you turn off speedstep? Have an i5 overclocked at 3 (on a GA-P55M-UD2) but am not sure if speedstep is off or on. I believe it is on as I have not done anything to turn it off. I followed Tony's guide to set up the system and it is running great otherwise. I am slightly worried about the temp of my cpu. iStat reads my temp between 40 and 50 depending on my computer activity. Is this too high? What temp should I be shooting for and at what temp should I be worried? I have a i5 750 on a GA-P55M-UD2 overclocked to 3.0 using the stock cooler. Any suggestions for a better cooler.
  4. In case any one else is having a similar problem, I solved this by just reinstalling Windows 7 (make sure you unplug the Snow drive before installing Win 7). Now, I have Snow working great on the Sata drive and Win 7 on the IDE and I can boot both from PC EFI boot loader. However, I am having a problem with my BIOS clock. Whenever I boot into Snow, Snow changes the clock in the BIOS to about 8 hours ahead of the current time. The time in Snow is correct but when I boot back into Windows, the time gets all messed up. The timezones are the same in both. Nothing else is reset in the BIOS or CMOS other than the clock. All my other settings as to boot order, etc. stay the same. I have Tony's most recent DSDT installed for my GA-P55M-UD2 board (Core i5 750 and Nvidia 9500GT). Anyone else having a similar problem or a solution.
  5. Windows drive boots whether the SL drive is attached or not. It works just fine. I just hit F12 when I boot and select the drive. However, the SL drive only works when the Win 7 drive is unplugged. The SL drive is the first in priority in the BIOS. It will boot fine with the Win 7 drive unplugged. It hangs when I attach the Win 7 drive. I even tried swapping the ports of the SATA drives as suggested here with no luck. Still wont work. This is driving me crazy and obviously reduces the use of my system if I must disconnect and connect the Win drive just to use Snow. Any other thoughts?
  6. I did not. I installed SL after Win 7 was already installed. Should I reinstall Windows with the SL drive attached?
  7. I am having an issue with booting. I successfully installed Snow on a SATA drive. I have Win 7 installed on a different SATA drive. When that drive is not connected, Snow boots just fine and runs great. When I connect the Win 7 drive and try to boot from the Snow drive, it wont boot. In fact, it doesnt even get to the PC EFI boot screen. It simply hangs before it even gets to that screen. I have GA-P55M-UD2, Core i5 750, and Nvidia 9500 GT. Used Tony's guide to install and his modified files. Everything works fine when I boot into it. Any ideas?
  8. Can you let us know if that board works for you using this install method when you try it? I am interested in picking up one of those boards also. Thanks
