  1. Hi bautzen! Thanks for one more detailed tutorial!! I would like to ask if you prefer SL instead of Lion. Which one runs better on our notebooks in your opinion ? Have you tried to update to 10.7.5 ? I was thinking on ML, but there is no kext for ours gma950 that allows we have QE/CI. Thank you!
  2. You're right. It's a "generic" tutorial.So I picked up some of the kexts from your guide, to make the steps suit right for my nc4400. My bootloader is the Slice's one. I dont have any KP related to my T7200 cpu. I'm using the DSDT that you uploaded. I think everything is working fine. How can I chek it ?
  3. I followed THIS tutorial to get Lion 10.7.2 running on my nc4400. With some kext's for power manager, my temp is about 47C, with a fake "speedstep" feature. Thanks for bautzen for doing some details working for this particular laptop.
  4. Hi Pat! I just want to say that I got my Wireless Intel 3945 working !!! With the project camphor kexts!! It's amazing. But must have a good wireless signal. I didnt test with encrypted signal. Thanks!
  5.

  6. I have a MBR Partition and 3 partitions: Windows (sda1), Mac OS X (sda2) and Linux (sda3). So I can't follow the 6th and 7th step from Slice's guide to not have my MBR overwritten. Cause I use the LILO bootloader in MBR. Is it fine ? I'll use the modules folder...For what is for ? I downloaded THIS to set up my Intel PRO/Wireless 3945 card. I used the kexthelper, and kextutil to install those kexts, but I'm still not have my wireless card working. I've read in some foruns that I have to fix the permissions using the Disk Util...Is that right ? Now my system seems stable using the 32 bit mode. After I installed the new Chameleon, I got no more that 'hard shutdown and wait' issue to boot the system. Or at least, less. The only thing that miss is to set up my wireless, and then I think will be fine. But if there something that must be tuned, please tell me . Thanks a lot for your concern!
  7. Now that you explained, I'll apply those kexts. Maybe this could be helpful to your work. In boot verbose, I can see the AppleIntelPowerManagement.kext, but not the other one (maybe because is too fast). I've already install the VoodooPowerMini.kext. I've a Intel PRO/Wireless 3945 abg. I'll try the first option. Ok. Now I'm gonna install all the kexts in the SLE folder in NC4400.zip Yes. That's right! You've convinced me! Well... Now I'm gonna install , as I've said before, all the kexts from SLE folder. I've installed the update combo already! And it's working fine, despite of the Core 2 Duo issue (that you have to wait the nanoseconds and all that). I've downloaded the Chameleon and the org.chameleon.boot.plist that you uploaded. I replaced the org.chameleon.boot.plist (the one that you uploaded) to the first boot.plist (the one that came in the nc4400 zip folder). I also copied the boot file from the folder usr/standalone/i386 (that came in Chameleon) to my / . This I can understand. Ah, and I changed the Themes folder and remove the EvOreboot.kext. But I got lost here.... I could not find the smbios.plist in any folder in Chameleon_2.0_RC5m_r1291.tar.gz ...If you could explain better the process, I'll appreciate . Thanks a lot for your detailed replies!! It's helped me a lot and sure that will help others!!!
  8. Hi, I'm gonna present you my installation issues. I've rigorously followed yours steps. 1) Install/boot in 64 bit mode: # The install goes fine, but the fan doesn't work all the time...That worried me a lot, because of the temperature. But I've checked with my hand, and it seems fine. # Install done, first boot. I haven't got the 'welcome screen' with 64 bit mode installation. I don't know why. After I've logged in, the effects ,when you minimize and maximize a screen, was in very low speed too. I think that in 64bit mode, the graphics kext don't works fine. #Don't seems to me that the power management, and the speed-step feature is working...the fan still off a lot of time...and when its turn on , make a huge noise at high speed... # In a general way, the system worked well...though I cannot get the airport working. Maybe I don't n know how to set it up... 2) Install/boot in 32 bit mode # The install goes fine, but the fan doesn't work all the time...That worried me a lot, because of the temperature. But I've checked with my hand, and it seems fine. # Install done, first boot. I've got the 'welcome screen'. After I've logged in the desktop effects works fine. And better than 64 bit mode #Don't seems to me that the power management, and the speed-step feature is working...the fan still off a lot of time...and when its turn on , make a huge noise at high speed... # In a general way, the system worked well...though I cannot get the airport working. Maybe I don't n know how to set it up... # The boot is more stable, until now, I've got none KP. *With this mode I've done until the step 5 of this guide. And I'm note using none of those kexts in S/L/E nc4400.zip folder. So, I hope that I can find some newer kext. For example, there is a newer kext than AppleACPIPlatform.kext for Snow Leopard. And I would like too use a stable 64 bit system. That's the reason I'm not using those kext yet. Finally, would be great if.... 1) Use the system in 64 bit mode, with more stability. 2) Get a video kext to make the graphics card work well in 64bit mode. 3) Make the fan works well, according to the temperature of the processor. The Intel speed-step feature. I think those 3 is more important now! And I don't mind to use some of those kexts in the nc4400.zip folder to get working my card reader. But I would like to know if there is the same kext, but to the SL system. I hope I can help with this issues, and I'm available to find the solutions and improvements of this guide! There is no SleepEnabler.kext. Now the system just boot fine. I think is because that I've not installed the kexts after the update combo. I've just copied the VoodooPS2Controller to the Extra folder of my USB drive, and it works well. I think the '64 bit' issue is not the reason of the 3.3gb ram issue. The system only can see those 3.3gb (even we've got 4gb installed) because the BIOS reserve, at the boot, some memory to the peripherals and for the video card memory, this one can have a shared memory at least of 228mb. So, is have more to do with the BIOS settings of each mobo, and do not have to do with the 64 bit mode. That's my opinion. I do think that our notebook is 64 bit capable. Maybe I'm wrong... I'm using the last version available in hp site: F.0C
  9. Thanks for your reply bautzen! I really appreciate your concern!! Now I've followed the steps in the right order...After I updated to 10.6.7, I've installed the kexts...And I've got the same KP. That's why I was thinking to try with the nc6400's dsdt. But if you say that , I'll maintain the nc4400's. I would like to add some tricks to get the keyboard working at the first boot installation. I've copied the VoodooPS2Controller.kext to the /Extra folder. So, when the boots run , I got my kb working! So my last doubt is about the 64 bit mode boot. Can I use this ? Like boot-arg 'arch=x86_64' . Cause I've noted that your boot.plist have the 'arch=i386' arg. Can I change that without problem ? Ah! And, yes, I successfully loaded the dsdt. I can see the bluetooth icon. And I'll consider to use the new Chameleon that you've updated...One last request, if is possible to post a alternatively link to download your stuff...cause I can't load from kexts.com even I already have registered and login. Thanks a lot, you're doing a great job, aiding people with those nice, but old notebooks! Thanks a lot!
  10. Nice piece of work here! It helped me a lot!! (sorry my bad english too) But I've got some errors. I have a NC4400 same model as yours , but with a Core 2 Duo T7200 and 4GB RAM. So I followed those steps, many times...but always I got a error like: Unable to find driver for this platform \ACPI\ @/SourceCache/xnu/xnu-1504.9.37/iokit/Kernel/IOPlatformExpert.app After applying those kexts, always after I've installed the Update Combo. But now I realize that I used the NC4400 dsdt.aml. Should I use the NC6400.zip folder to suit my T7200 processor ?? Thanks a lot!
