  1. Hello : I´m involved since yesterday in the tricky path for install Leopard/Snow Leopard on my netbook. Here are my experience till now. 1.- First I´ve tried with Kalyway ( Meanwhile I get iAtkos S3 v2 ) with Leopard 10.5.2 . With this one, I installed some time ago in my Asus barebone almost successfull, but without sound. All times I´ve tried, always get a Kernel Panic message. My netbook´s BIOS has got minimal options, but AHCI is still there. Playine with other options, like changing the number of processors to boot, the frequency of them ( Dynamic or Loss power ) and some USB things didn´t work. Couldn´t acces to installation screen... 2.- Next, with iAtkos S3 v2 Snow Leopard. In the best results, I´ve got the Apple logo and the "loading circle" turning very slowly for about an hour. No response, even with safe mode with -F. I don´t know if it´s possible to start the installation with more options to get the install screen. Kernel panic for all places. 3.- My brother has a mac-mini from 2009, and with the original DVD coming with it and the EFI Empire for intel atom, I get to installation screen,but the installation menu sais that "this machine could not load a backup instalation, or restore the OS ). I think this it because my brother´s DVD it´s not the retail one. By the way, at this point to execute EFI properly, the best one was with the Legacy drivers... 4.- I´m getting the retail Snow Leopard today, and still try one more time as I did on the step 3. I hope with this could acces to Install screen properly, and start a true installation. All of this took me about 9 hours yesterday, and the NTFS partitios I´ve got in my netbook with WinXP and for backup files get damaged. It seems that the possibility to run Mac OS on this netbook is pretty small, but I will keep on trying with the retail OS. If I not succeed, I hope someone could give a helping hand about how to make it. Well, keep in tune. I will post more of my experience about this. I´m just a clumsy newbie, but I try to the end! See you !! : J.

  3. Introduce yourself

    Hi everyone ! : I´m Jaume. I´ve been trying my best in computers since 1986, using an MSX ( still using it...I love it ) since today. My little brother bouhgt a mac mini two years ago, and I´m very impressed how nice it works. He always asked me how to do this or that whe he was using a PC or something like that, since the day he had his mac. Now it´s me who asks him !! I recently had a netbook, a Toshiba NB-520, and I´m gathering some info about it´s hardware. I´m wishfull to put an OSX on my little,humble device, and let the headaches run far away. Hope to find a good support here, and make some good friends and have a really good good time! So, here I am. Cheers and greets to everyone !: J.
