    Well, there is this possibility: http://www.macbreaker.com/2013/01/how-to-fix-imessage-login-problem-on.html It didn't work for me, as it kept hanging on boot, but it's working for others and the logic of the fix is an interesting read.

    I've admittedly been neglecting a look at the DSDT info meklort provided, but I did take a gander at his blog and it looks like he's getting busy again with another NBM which will work in conjunction with chameleon to modify kexts as needed rather than running NBI after every update. He's adding support for the GMA950 as well, but isn't seeing any hardware acceleration, and trying to figure out why. He indicates he'll have something out soon. I just haven't taken time to even begin looking at the information you've sent mattkime. I travel much of the time and often, the HPmini is my sole companion beyond my work machine which I can't modify without grief, so I haven't been willing to go through any experimentation that would leave me in a bind I couldn't repair easily. At any rate, this may be interesting to follow. Meklorts Blog phubai
  3. I didn't have a problem at all with the update. I was at work, began the download and got busy with other things. When I got back to the mini, it had rebooted and was waiting for me to log in. I fully expected a KP, but none came about. I decided it was a good time to follow LeMaurien19's guide and removed the EFI partition in favor of a root install which worked marvelously as well. The Kext Utility complained that VodooHDA.kext and FakeSMC.kext were installed improperly and would have to be reinstalled which I simply clicked Ok to but never needed to reinstall. The only thing I did have to do was reinstall the TrackPad.prefPane as I had no use of the trackpad initially. I restarted the system after it was finished with a -v -f switch, and then ran Onyx repairing permissions once the system loaded. Problems: I've had one black screen after a "lid close" sleep, but haven't had that happen again. I've lost the ability to scroll with the trackpad. Positives: No EFI Appears at least as stable as it was prior to the change. I can type without fear of the cursor jumping to another spot in the text causing me to type jibberish in the middle of a sentence somewhere. This was a very big improvement in my mind! This is seat of the pants, but either the battery meter isn't working, or I'm getting significantly longer battery life. Not tested yet: Ethernet after wake from sleep. I seldom use an ethernet connection, so I haven't had a chance to look at this yet but I see no reason for it to have changed and fully expect not to have ethernet functionality after waking from sleep. phubai
  4. Great job! Excellent detail as well...thank-you!
  5. I look forward to seeing your guide for the Retail Pack minus EFI boot, and it's a great idea to provide some detailed Lizard and setup instructions as well even if you're fairly comfortable with the process, things are easy to forget. I'll be happy to reinstall using your guide and provide feedback. Thanks

    And back up again it looks like. He had some hosting problems but NBI/NBM seems to be handling 10.5 seeds well. I'd still like to try to resolve the issues with the HP and NBI. For me at least, I think it's a better/simpler approach and has the potential to be useful to many. pb

    Thank-you! I do indeed use Onyx, SL version, although I had been running the daily, weekly, monthly periodic from the command line previously. And thanks for the update on the DSDT in HF6RC4. I was thinking that may have been part of the problem, and now I know it is not. Honestly, it has been quite stable since the initial KP's I described. So much so that I'm leaving my Macbook Pro behind on my next trip out of town and will rely on my Mini 311 entirely! I do appreciate your help on this, and I will continue to monitor and report any changes. phubai

    I did as you suggested, reboot, and the system powered up without issue. I tried sleep from the Apple menu, and it functioned perfectly. I waited 2 minutes, opened the lid expecting to have to push the power button, and I got my login screen along with a KP which is kernel_task related. I do have an Atom N270 + 2GB DDR3 RAM. I powered down my machine, booted again to a KP which indicates that no mapping exists for frame pointer--invalid frame pointer. Powered down, booted without incident. Tried sleep by closing the lid, allowing it to sleep, then opened the lid and was greeted with a login (1st time so far!). No KP. Allowed it to stabilize after sleep, and chose sleep from the Apple menu. Did not close lid, pressed blinking power button and was greeted again with my login. No KP. Repaired permissions and will continue trying to break it! Except for the two initial KPs, it seems to have stabilized and improved at least my sleep/wake from sleep experience...thank-you! phubai

    I've had numerous KP's today for some reason. I get the black screen on resume from sleep if using the lid (I wonder if Meklort's new lidsleep kext would help??) and it works fine if using the Apple menu. I did run the EFI edit and allowed it to rebuild the kexts. Reboot resulted in KP the first time, and it was fine after rebooting again until the lid close test and resulting black screen. 3GB RAM HF6RC4 F.15

    How much RAM do you have installed if you don't mind my asking. Most of us with 3GB of RAM seem to be suffering the most with KP's and we're also running F-15. Just curious.

    I do appreciate all of the detail provided both here and on the links provided here. I found it relatively easy to install Win 7 along with SL on another hard drive. I started with Mosslack's previous guide linked to the 1201N pages, installed windows 7 until I got to the activation screen where windows showed it's true colors and refused to see my activation code as being valid. Ok, I rebooted with the boot cd and installed SL, updated to 10.4 with the combo pkg and then made it bootable with the HPM311DP_063010HF6RC4 pkg. I had to reverse-engineer my dispart active partitions several times, but was able to keep up...barely ;-). Made partition 3 active afterward and was finally able to install win 7. For some reason, this time, my authentication passed...finished that installation, repaired Win 7, made partition 1 active, and all is good. Everything is working as it should. I did have 1 KP on reboot into SL initially, and yes I am running 3GB of RAM as well. I haven't had a problem since however, so I'm not sure that is an indication of anything. After the KP, I ran disk repair, just in case, but saw nothing unusual. phubai

    Excellent job! I enjoyed the video and appreciate your effort. Basically, even using EFI, I can use your guide to setup my dual boot with Win 7. I'm having excellent results on my 311 with the EFI install btw; at least so far. It's been very stable and I've done my best to test it. It has been as solid as my previous Dell mini 10v installation so far. I'd like to know what I did wrong with the mowglibook installation I tried previously as I would like to try that again on another hard drive (aww the beauty of the hp311 surfaces). Thanks! phubai

    I just followed your guide when I installed Win 7 on my 1201N and it worked without a hitch. Great guide by the way, thanks mosslack! I was hoping it would work on an EFI installation as well. Mosslack's Guide Was it appropriate to post that here? Well, I hope so anyway. phubai

    Agreed. I reinstalled OS X using your guide and it couldn't have been simpler. It's so far very stable, and the graphics are much improved over my previous install. I had some NBI remnants in addition to the retail install last time, and it just wasn't working well at all. Now it's super...thanks for your work on the guide and the tips you've provided. I tried overclocking as well, using the parameters you mentioned on your blog, but without success. I was in a endless boot/reboot cycle and had to revert back to the standard settings. I might try it again now that I have a more stable system installed though. At any rate, I look forward to the Win 7 guide. I have Win 7 on this drive, along with a fat shared data partition, but I need to reinstall 7 as this drive was installed and configured in my 1201N originally. Thanks! phubai
