  1. Hi there, after testing both a Dell Wireless 1390 (Based on a BCM4311 chipset since it is listed as 14e4:4311) and a Atheros AR5BXB72 Wifi card they both seem to work on my girlfriend's hackintosh laptop (Acer Aspire 7720) straight out of the box. But it doesn't seem to be the case when trying to use them on my laptop (Acer Aspire 5739G). I have tested them both under Windows and Linux and they seem to work, just not under OSX. Can anyone help me with this issue? I have tried both the vanilla installation method and using iATKOS S3.

    Broadcom bcm43xx wireless driver [beta]

    I have a Dell Wireless 1390 card which uses a BCM4311 chipset. It works out of the box on my girlfriend's hackintosh (Acer 7720) but not on mine (Acer 5739G) The card works under Windows though. I've changed my model identifier, taped the 20th pin and turned quiet boot off, but it's still not showing up. (Using iATKOS S3's Hardware Identifier it detects it as 14E4:4311). Any help?
  3. Hi there, I am trying to install iATKOS L2 on my Acer Aspire 5739G after using S3 pretty successfully. As per usual, I restore the image onto a USB and install the Chameleon Bootloader. I boot into verbose mode and I seen to get stuck after the PCI configurations has ended and FakeSMC successfully initialized. After that however, I get the follow message: Done a quick Google search but it doesn't show up anything useful... Any ideas?
  4. I used this tutorial: http://lifehacker.com/5360150/install-snow-leopard-on-your-hackintosh-pc-no-hacking-required
  5. Hmmm... Nothing appears in the log before it panics. Here is a picture of the kernel panic just in case I'm missing something: http://i.imgur.com/2DSIv.jpg
  6. That seemed to fix my slow graphics issue but when I start installing, it suddenly kernel panics. Can't see in the kp text the reason though... how would I find out what has caused the panic? Thanks
  7. I've used the cpus=1 boot flag but it's still the same unfortunately.
  8. Hi there, I am attempting to install Snow Leopard on my Acer Aspire 5739G. The initial boot into the installation process doesn't take too long, but when I'm at the "Language Selections" part all the Graphics seem to be very slow. The top panel doesn't display either just the USA flag and when I click on the "Next" arrow it takes a long time to get to the next screen which appears fairly "glitchy/garbled". I have tried booting using the GraphicsEnabler=Yes and GraphicsEnabler=No but there doesn't seem to be any difference in performance. Does anyone know what the issue is? My Specs are: Motherboard: Intel PM45 CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo 2.2GHz RAM: 4GB DDR3 (2x2GB) Graphics: Nvidia Geforce GT 240M

    How supported is the 240M?

    Hi there, When I installed snow leopard onto my computer, the only thing that was an issue was that my Nvidia Geforce GT 240M had to boot with GraphicsEnabler=N otherwise the screen updates would be really slow. I'm assuming this is to do with not having hardware acceleration supported? I was just wondering what are the compromises with booting with the flag, GraphicsEnabler=N have? Is there any fixes I can apply by any chance? Thanks!
  10. Hey everyone, almost got a very nice working dual-booting laptop in full working order. I have installed vanilla Snow Leopard (10.6) but I have noticed that the sound (Realtek ACL268) has stopped working all together after I had ran ######, I've tried removing any HDA related kext and trying to install VoodooHDA.kext but it's still not working. Unfortunately the cpu fan doesn't work which obviously is dangerous for the hardware... Is there anything I can do to get it working? Regards, Ollie

    Best Netbook for OSX

    I managed to get my Acer Aspire One 150 working fully, like the camera works etc. But when it's on battery the 1.6GHz Atom N270 processor gets locked at 800mhz and can't get any support on this forum to fix this issue. I'm assuming other Atom processor based netbooks are like this too.
  12. Sorry for making a duplicate topic but I've had no luck what so ever. Basically I have an Acer Aspire One A150 and when on AC Power I get the full 1.6GHz of processing power but when on battery it scales down to a sluggish 800mhz. Is there anyway I can keep it at 1.6GHz? Or have some sort of "on demand" setting so when I need to use a lot of CPU power such as opening a application it will go to 1.6GHz but when it's idleing it will go back to 800mhz to save power, like on Linux?
  13. Hi there, when my SL powered Acer Aspire One A150/ZG5 is connected to the power adapter the processor is clocking at 1.6GHz but when it's on battery it is constantly on 800mhz so it's very sluggish trying to do ANYTHING. Is there anyway to change it back up to 1.6GHz even when running on the battery regardless of more power usage? Thanks!

    ENAC Multitouch Drivers?

    Hi there, I'm wondering if there is any version of OSX86 which supports my Hanvon 10.1 touch screen on my Viewsonic Viewpad 10, which is listed here. Is it supported at all? Thanks!
  15. Sounds like similar specs to the Viewpad 10. Linux users had the same issue with the touch fingers on the touch screen problem. It was fixed by installing the ENAC multitouch drivers which were included in the 2.6.38 version of the Linux kernel. No idea if it will ever be or can be supported in osx86. But if you do make progress, I'd be very interested!
