  1. Asus 1201N Installation and support

    Nope. But if it works as a bootloader with Atom powered netbooks to install the 10.6.3 retail OS then it's worth a go, no? Being free and all, it can't hurt. Do you know that it won't work?
  2. Asus 1201N Installation and support

    The myHack latest bootmaker and installer will allow you to create your hackintosh with the 10.6.3 retail disk. HTH. Cheers, Andy.
  3. That pesky USB error message

    Do you have a message that says something like "OHCI controller will be unloaded across sleep" in your kernel.log? If so there are ways to fix that, either by using patched USB or IOPCIFamily kexts, or DSDT editing. That's interesting. How is it that my OP content has disappeared and has been replaced by the text above? Mods? To the above comments, getting a USB kext or IOPCIFamily kext that resolve the problem on the 1005HA is easier said than done. You have links to working versions? Then by all means supply them and I'll be happy to try them. As I pointed out in my now-deleted intro, the DSDT route has demonstrated performance hits as a consequence, so until that issue is also solved then DSDT editing is half a solution. But I'm happy to be proven wrong. Link away. Cheers, Andy
  4. ASUS 1001HA Simple Guide (Everything is working)

    There's definitely a DSDT tweak that works to prevent Sleep from un-mounting the USB drives forcefully and generating the error message on wake (I assume that's what this discussion is about but if I misunderstood, apologies). A search here at InsanelyMac will lead you to it. From the little I read, the DSDT mod attempts to define the appropriate USB device controller as built in, so there's no forced un-mount (dismount?) and no error message. Though it's working, on system wake the USB performance seems to take a major hit. So a work in progress still, I think. There's another route worth looking at, SleepWatcher, which works as advertised in that it gets the Finder to gently dismount any ejectable USB drives prior to sleep activating. So, no disk error risk and no error messages. It doesn't modify the USB controller status, so no performance hit. Check out the Mac OS X Hints post by miketyson here for more info. I use it and it works perfectly. HTH and cheers, Andy
  5. Asus 1005hab (works for 1005ha) Snow Leopard Install Guide

    Yo Ioan... Try this version... I believe it's the one I used. build_x64_20100424_b.zip Cheers, Andy.
  6. ASUS 1001HA Simple Guide (Everything is working)

    Answered here.
  7. Asus 1005hab (works for 1005ha) Snow Leopard Install Guide

    Replace the Attansic 1e ethernet kext with reader02's AtherosL1cEthernet.kext. Get Spark keymapper and remap your volume up/down keys to system volume up/down. All will be golden. HTH. Cheers, Andy.
  8. Great. Thanks a bunch dude. Cheers, Andy.
  9. Wow. Speedy response. Thanks for the update. I'll add the 2.0 factor to my search list. If you hadn't spotted it, I've edited my original post. With a theory from a colleague who knows a bit about Adobe products. So I'll check that out as well. Your written English is pretty good - educated in the UK maybe? One last thing... Is the Renderer info proof that OpenGL is definitely functioning on our machines? Thanks once more. Andy.
  10. Hi Andy. I compared the Renderer info screen grab attached to your post with the Renderer output from my 1005HA and with the exception of the Version # being 1.6.26 vs your 1.6.6, they appear to be otherwise identical. To be completely honest, I don't get what I'm seeing here. If this screen of info indicates that I have OpenGL acceleration working on my netbook (27ae), then somebody needs to tell Adobe, as the Photoshop "Performance" preference displaying GL enabled acceleration has the GL button greyed out and thus, Photoshop apparently isn't aware of any such enabling. Can you shed any light on this mystery? If all else fails, I could conceivably uninstall the CS suite and reinstall it in the hope that the installer finds OpenGL and enables it, but as it's a long-winded process with de-authorisation, lengthy uninstall and re-install, I thought I'd ask first. Thanks in advance, and great work. EDIT: There's a possibility that PS4 requires the graphics adapter to have 256MB of Video Ram available before it will 'switch on' the GL functionality, which might well solve the mystery. I'll do a little research on the Adobe forums. Meantime though, if you (or any kind soul reading this) knows of a suitable OpenGL performance testing app, I'd be pleased to hear of it. Thanks again. :-) Cheers, Andy.
  11. 1005hab graphics and sleep issues

    I think we've established that already, which is why you asked me "how" previously... As I suggested above, google it and you'll get several download options. It's downloadable separately from NBI in pkg form for easy install. Would you like me to search for you? Cheers, Andy.
  12. 1005hab graphics and sleep issues

    Certainly. Note the "Synaptics" in the title bar. There are two tabs of options involving multi-touch and even swiping. No longer have a URL, but googling it will take you to a download or two. HTH. Cheers, Andy
  13. 1005hab graphics and sleep issues

    Well yeah, I do since I have the Synaptics trackpad prefpane installed which allows you to turn the horizontal/vertical edge scroll on and off. And if you install it too, I figure it'll help you with your problem. But if you'd just rather be petulant, then fill your boots. Cheers, Andy. See my response above. You're a rather defensive wee soul, aren't you? Have a nice day. Cheers, Andy.
  14. 1005hab graphics and sleep issues

    Turn it off in the preference pane? Cheers, Andy.
  15. Overheating Issues on 1005HA/1005HAB (my guide)

    The AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement kext which is responsible for fan speed and thus cooling is prolly not loading - maybe because it's not a match for the kernel or perhaps the NullCPUPowerManagement kext is overriding it. Whichever, it's likely not doing any harm either. One of your contributors has offered a working solution involving initialising the power management with the battery. Check it out. It worked for me. Cheers, Andy
