    HP mini 110-3700

    I did download iDeneb v3... tried many versions of v3... I can't remember offhand but there were so many. I just had to stop for my own sanity. I'm going to pick it up again this weekend with another fresh install of ideneb v3. You can find it fairly easily on certain torrent sites. 1.5, osx 10.5.7, doesn't work with our minis I dont think. At least the Wifi card doesn't work, and I dunno about you but I need mine to work.

    I appreciate you taking the time to post this. I did come across your site while searching for a method however what prevented me was that you need to start on a machine running Snow Leopard, which I do not have. I have units running 10.10 Ubuntu, 10.4, and XP Thanks anyway. I've ended up setting this on the backburner for the last week or so as I've been engaged in other affairs and haven't had the time to figure it out. I did get as far as a 10.5 install, but when I installed OSXTools and began the process of installing the necessary kexts, well... it was so confusing and I didn't know what to install and what not to... I bricked the install twice with bad kexts I guess...and just had to put it on hold. I imagine i'll try again this week.

    I'm up and running with iDeneb v3 10.5.7. I'm trying to figure out what to do next - USB doesn't work although ethernet does. I followed this right up until after the ideneb install: http://myhpmini.com/forum/guide-mini-110-i...king-t1719.html As soon as that guide got to these steps: 1. Type “-s” and hit enter 2. Wait for the text skim by until it stops. Then type “/sbin/fsck –fy” and press enter 3. Once it says “File System was modified” type “/sbin/mount -uw /” with spaces .. it lost me and I just pulled the USB drives and started it up. I can't seem to find anything that indicates just what I do next now that I have 10.5.7 up and running. I'm having restart issues, the USB ports appear to not be functioning, and I haven't gotten to try the webcam, nevermind the wifi. I just downloaded OSXTools and I'm going to try playing around with that for a while. I'll let you know how it goes. Cheers

    Well iDeneb 1.4 didn't work AT ALL via USB.... ugh what a process. .. Trying the iDeneb v3 10.5.5 now. No dice on 10.5.5 Trying 10.5.7 now... Getting ridiculous.... OK Installing iDeneb v3 10.5.7 now, I would recommend you guys do the same - It seems to run much smoother and more responsive than SL. I've read around here and elsewhere that a 10.5.7 install is fully functional. I'm hoping to get it to that myself....

    As far as I know wifi does not work on the HP Mini 110 series with 10.6.x... need to drop down to 10.5 or swap the wifi card with an HP Mini 1000 wifi card.. apparently. I started down the 10.5 stream yesterday cause I wanted wifi to work. I'm using iDeneb's v1.4 to try a 10.5 install as we speak. It apparently is fully functional with our series of Minis. Will advise... I think what's most challenging in all this is in my infamiliarity with any of the terms for anything. I'm still unsure what a kext is, although I think it's PC brother would be a driver... lol. Marco - the ethernet plug is covered by a flap that you can detach. Should be there for all 3xxx series Minis.

    Damn... still can't get either an ethernet connection or a wifi (obviously). USB still doesn't work even with the USBBusFix:Yes added to the boot option

    What do you mean there's no ethernet port? On mine there is. What do you mean by 'add the flag'? A startup option? I can grab the realtek driver but I have no way of getting it on the mini currently. I've tried re-installing about 5 times today with various ethernet settings... no dice so far. To the wifi - I've read it's not do-able on 10.6 but these threads were 1-2 years old so I'm not sure there's a fix yet. Edit: ahhh - I think you mean add USBBusFix:Yes to the "-v -cpus=1 usbfix=yes" after reboot?

    OK it worked - booted into OSX. Going to start the process of testing and seeing what works/doesn't. I think I may have to re-install. Neither USB, ethernet or wifi are working. It doesn't recognize any PCI ethernet cards installed. Which ethernet option did you select when you installed, can you remember?

    Thanks, I'm going to try it now, I'll let you know.

    I can't seem to get further than the chameleon screen, every option I try using results in almost instant reboot. It's so fast I can't see the error text that pops up. I keep trying the reinstall with different options but to no avail

    Hey Marci Rossi Any further updates? I went through that guide you recommended and am now installing as we speak. I chose chameleon RC4 as you recommended, along with the internet options in the optional category. I assume this is just another series of steps to get it working but at LEAST I am now installing it - I consider this a HUGE win. MANY thanks to you. I guess the others that know more about this don't actively monitor these netbook forums much.

    Heck yah that's progress- that's fantastic news. Thanks for that link, I'll follow it tonight and see what happens. Perhaps I can stumble my way through with XP, or even grab a friend's Win7 laptop for the prep/setup. Thanks again - keep me/us posted and I'll do the same!
  13. http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=265894 In reference to the above existing thread, I figured I'd post here to try and solicit some sort of help or response. So me and a few guys are trying to walk our ways through this and any help anyone can provide would be great. I now have iDeneb 10.5.7 installed on my HP Mini 110-3700. Problem is, I have no idea what to do now. I can't find a single walkthrough or guide that points me to next steps after the 10.5.7 install. I have just downloaded OSX Tools. The Mini has working ethernet although it seems to time out occasionally. It also told me I had to restart as I was trying to install Mozilla. I've been at this for the better part of a month and although I'm fairly bright, fairly well-versed in the PC world, etc etc etc why is this so bloody difficult to comprehend? Anyway, as far as I can tell I need Kexts. Anyone know where I could find them? I'm worried I'll install the wrong ones and bugger my ideneb install, and since it took me so long to actually get 10.5.7 up and running I'd like to avoid that if possible

    I'll even add an update as I've been at this all day (hard to believe). Being that I now had the borrowed Macbook in hand I scrapped the ideneb-onto-usb-through-DDMac-on-XP plan and began the process of preping my 8GB USB drive using the retail Snow Leopard DVD + Netbookbootloader, following the bootloader + retail + netbook installer guide/strategy. I just ran into yet another wall when surprise surprise, Netbookbootloader doesn't work with Tiger - just 10.6+. SO, reverting back to iDeneb v3 10.5, using DDMac, I get this error which is apparently somewhat common but I can't find a fix: EHCI Controller unable to take control of Bios Apple.... unable to obtain ownership UIMInitialize - Error occurred unable to initialize UIM I've tried searching each of these 4 lines in the forums and thus far have drawn blanks.....
