  1. WATCH-OUT: How to test your QE/CI in Lion

    Thanx for the input. A quick, but useful tip for many of us.
  2. I don't remember the order, whether I updated to 10.6.4 or installed this driver first, but I'm pretty sure I updated to 10.6.4 first, because I had it working with another card used for install initially. I also later installed Ubuntu Lucid Lynx (10.04) and I am now using grub. A boot into 64bit mode OSX produces a different resolution (small screen on a 1920x1080 display). I haven't troubleshooted it yet, but I can confirm that the 32bit loader is working fine. Sorry, as soon as it was working on my desktop I moved to my netbook, an Asus T101MT and have been focusing on that... Anyways, hope that helps...
  3. Asus T101MT working Hackintosh Instructions

    I won't go into extreme detail, but here is how I installed OSX on the t101mt. I wanted to use the retail disk, of which I had both 10.6.0 and 10.6.3. I also had an 8gb SDHC available, as well as a USB DVD drive, of which I made use of both. In addition, I did not want to delete the files on the internal HDD until I was sure that it worked, so I used a USB HDD also. USB mouse was also required for install. I used the myHack installer on my first attempt. Because Atom processors were no longer supported in 10.6.3, I used the 10.6.0 disk. Used my Hack Desktop to copy the DVD to the memory card and then run the myhack installer to install the bootloader to the memory card. I think the main options to point out are the GraphicsDisabler option checked and I actually had to use the included Chocolate kernel (wouldn't work without it). Set in BIOS to boot off of the memcard with "-v -x" kernel extensions, install was mostly successful, giving the "Install Failed" message with about 9 minutes left. Apparently, this is quite common. Booting off of the myHack memcard with same kernel flags was unseccessful after this, giving a chocolate kernel not found error message. Since I had the USB DVD drive and a copy of Empire EFI 1.85 boot disk lying around, I decided to give it a try. Booted with the "-v -x" options, it booted fine, allowing me to do the post-install setup wizard. Ran the myHack installer once more to install the bootloader and choco kernel to the HDD, and it booted fine after this. Later booted off the memcard/insall media again to copy the partition to space already made on the internal HDD and all works fine. Since I had to install using the choco kernel anyway, I went through the same process again using the 10.6.3 DVD and it worked in much the same way. PS/2 mouse fix works for the included touchpad in normal mode, but does not load in safe mode. I chose to use the memcard reader to save on USB ports, having planned on using the USB HDD and USB DVD drive. Graphics acceleration seems to be a lost cause at this point, but I'm sure we'll be able to get something going in the future. I did notice that the system recognizes the digitizer as a mouse. Tapping the screen inputs as a click of the mouse, with no regard to location on the screen. To me, this is the next thing I'd like to see working.
  4. I was following this post for a while now, and found an easy solution. I have an ASUS GT240 512mb (Japanese Version). I tried many things mentioned here, including downloading drivers and CUDA apps from both eVGA and Nvidia. But none of them seemed to work well. There is a GT 250 driver at www.kexts.com that worked wonderfully. Installed, and it just worked, in all its QE/CI goodiness. Here's a link. http://www.kexts.com/view/431-geforce_gts_250.html Note: Had to run the install with a different card and then booted into safe mode with the new card installed, loaded this driver and yay! Good luck
  5. Asus T101MT working Hackintosh Instructions

    Hey, well informative post. I recently put together a new box and bought the Japanese version of this netbook. (I live and work in Japan). I've been installing osx86 for about 5 years now, had it running on my shuttle xpc and with full touch screen support on my Toshiba M200/M205. I love tablets, so this little guy was an obvious choice. Needless to say, I'm really excited to get it running on the netbook. As soon as I get the desktop running tip-top, I'll start work on the netbook. You've written a lot of good material on it. Thanks for your hard work and contributions.
