Iatkos 10.5.7 full procedure for ACER ONE 150, fully working!

70 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello, I've merged and amended few procedures found around, so credits are going more to other people that to me! in any case after many attempt I've found how to have a 100% working installation of iaktos 10.5.7 on my acer one 150:

 

here the procedure:

 

Acer Aspire One - A150 (wireless dell 1390 installed) 1.5gb ram / iAtkos_v7 / Leopard 10.5.7 (video, sound and wired network working)

 

+ (Expand)

* (Select)

 

*iatkos v7 Main System (Installed By Default)

+Bootloader

*Chameleon v2 (Installed By Default)

+X86 Patches

+Decrypters (Unselect AppleDecypt)

*Dsmos (Select)

+Kernel

*9.50.0 KernelVoodoo (Select)

+ACPI

*x86 ACPI (Select)

+Drivers

(Skip VGA) NOT APPLICABLE TO ACER ASPIRE ONE D150 - Below is the Correct procedure to install the video with the proper resolution.

+Sound

*Voodoo HDA driver (Installed By Default)

+System

+PS/2 Mouse Keyboard (Only Select One)

*Apple Ps/2 Driver (Select)

+Sytem

*Laptop Battery (Select)

+Network

realteck 1000

+Wireless

*Broadcom BCM43xx (Dw1490,Dw1390,Dw1395) (Select) This Kext is only if you have already Purchased The(Dw1490 Cards).

*Post_Install Actions (Installed By Default)

 

"Now Restart you should Hear Audio with Music and Go Ahead and Setup Info"

At This Point You Should Be On Your "Desktop"

 

This Is Where you will Do The Setup For Video "Drivers"

reboot in single user, -s option at the loader:

 

Then, enter the following commands:

 

/sbin/mount -uw /

rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntelGMA*

rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntelIntegratedFramebuffer.kext

rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions.mkext

 

reboot

 

once up and runnig :

 

download the correct video kext from http://depositfiles.com/files/lj13ctz15

thanks to uluf!! and install the kext using osx86tools (NOT KEXT HELPER..It didn;t work in my case)

 

reboot with flag -f (IMPORTANT THE FIRST TIME) then you can reboot without any option in the future.

 

you should have now the rigth resolution, open osx86tools again and enable quartz gl, then open disk utility and repair permission on the hd.

 

reboot again and you should have the acer with a 100% working 10.5.7...

run software update, install everything new, and make a backup of the working system! so in the future you can restore the backup instead doing again all that!

 

I hope this helps

 

 

 

 

 

 

UPDATE: not sure if it is real but cpu-x report the cpu speed at 1692mhz! with the multipler at x12.5 instead of x12.0, the iaktos team has implemented some software overclock by default??

I've noticed a that it is wormer than usual, and the battery goes down a little quickly.... I'll try to check other ways to check the cpu clock... system profiler reports the same!

Mic fixed:

 

I had to removed the Original AppleHDA.kext, replace with thatone from paul's wind pack, add HDAenabler still from the same pack, then remove the VoodooHDA.kext, and the pref panel..

At reboot mic and sounds are working but there is still the bug of the panic shutting down on battery, as workarounf I've installed InsomniaX with sounds enabled :D

Now everything seems really to work.

install all the kext starting with APPLE, that are into the zip file, do not instal the natit, and follow step by step the procedure, copy and paste the commands, use the command line when is required and osx86tools to install the kexts. even a small difference in the procedure is gonna give to you the blue screen.

I made a couple of time an error, maybe it is the same as you, I was removing only the original appleintelgma950* kext, but actually you have to remove even those for other videocards! so be sure you run the command:

 

rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntelGMA*

 

this removes al the intel kext for any videocard....

 

I hope this helps

 

the mic is working, but the fix has introduced the shutdown panic bug, that can be avoided using insomniaX software.

 

sorry m8 so EVERYTHING ELSE is working??

 

WIFI

GFX CARD

AUDIO OUTPUT

 

just mic is is not working?

 

 

WIFI as described into my post is working for me with a dell 1390 wireless card that I had installed.

gxf card is working if you follow my procedure, external monitor as well but not tried mirroring yet.

audio autput is workign, mic, jacks all ok.

 

there is a fix for the mic, read carefully my posts.

I've tried last night to upgrade my A150 from 10.5.6 to 10.5.7 by following the post and it works as it should be.

 

However, there was an error for the MobileMe PreferencePanel and it was fixed by copy the preferencepane file from my TM copy. Right now, I'm backing it up with TM. I'll fix Mic issue later.

 

Great works.

Picchiant,

 

I have been struggling to follow your steps on my new Acer D150 (without any new hardware such as network card).

In all cases, the install is fine but the OS very unstable and causing crashed at the Voodoo kernel level.

I have not yet, or being able, to apply the Video driver, so that may be the cause...

Sound was kinda working but seemed to cause crashes too, so I ended up disabling it during install.

 

I am using the iAtkos v7 distrib. Would be cool to get some help here!!

 

Thanks for the already great work.

reboot with flag -f (IMPORTANT THE FIRST TIME) then you can reboot without any option in the future.

 

Sorry, but how do I "reboot with flag -f"?

 

I tried booting into Single User Mode and typing "reboot -f" but got an error... I also tried "reboot [-f]" which is a valid command, but when it reboots, it just gets to a blue screen after the apple logo and never completely boots (or is booting but the screen isn't working)...

 

Thanks in advance for your help, and thanks for a great tutorial though, I've been looking for a nice write-up like this, thanks...

the Asthmatic Avenger

The Asthmatic Avenger - to reboot with flag -f, what you need to do is restart the system and when you are at the Chameleon bootloader (press any key before it automatically boots into OS X), then press f8 and type "-f" (without quotes). You will see it entered at the boot: at the bottom left of the screen. then press enter and it will boot.

 

I used some info from this thread http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...173184&st=0 and also used the video drivers listed there for download (they worked for the hp mini and the A150). The video drivers work like a charm. Here is a link to the video drivers that Aboshi posted and that I used http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...st&id=51803

 

Here is something that may help before doing the flag -f (from the above linked thread, thanks Aboshi)

 

"So now that OS X is installed when the mini reboots and you see the Chameleon boot loader. press any key to enter setup.

now type -s you should see boot: -s on the bottom left hand side of the screen, now press enter and it should boot you into single user mode.

with you get the command prompt it will look like this:

:/ root#

now type /sbin/fsck -fy and press enter

after it does its thing type: /sbin/mount -uw / and press enter

don't forget that / after -uw or you will not have write access. (My note to this (figured it out the hard way), make sure to have the space between -uw and / or it won't work).

 

Do Exactly as I say or you will hate life =)

Type: cd System/Library and press enter

Type: rm -r Extensions.mkext and press enter

Type: cd Extensions and press enter

Type: rm -r AppleIntelGMA*.* and press enter

Type: rm -r AppleIntelIntergrated*.* press tab and it will fill in the rest for you and press enter

Type: shutdown -r now

This will remove the kext cache and all of the Intel Graphic drivers because they do not work correctly (stuck at 800x600) and the system should now reboot."

when it reboots do the -f as mentioned at the Chameleon screen after pressing f8 and all should go well. :P

 

Between this thread and Aboshi's thread - I was able to get iatkos v7 installed on both a mini and on an A150.

I am facing the same problem with you, can you help me to work this problem out by showing what preferencepane files you copied to the iatkos v7 system?

 

Thanks very much!!

reboot options - video drivers - bootloader

 

Hi, i am new with mac osx, perhaps these are stupid questions but....

 

1- how i "reboot in single user, -s" and "at the loaderreboot with flag -f"

 

2- I have the same machine (Acer Aspire One 150) and installed macosx just the guide and perfect until have to install video drivers.

I have selected one of the my1001TUvideokexts folder but when restart its freeze in the apple welcome screen. I don´t know what i did wrong

 

3- The last thing is that at start up theres a nice windows (suppose chamelon2 boot) that shows (if i press any button) my pre installed winxp and win7. But if i want to run any of them an start up errors appears. Can i solve this or have to reinstall everything?

 

Thanks, and this post is the best i found!!!!!

Hi All

 

First off, let me express my huge thanks to all on InsanelyMac and especially this thread. I've gotten my Acer Aspire A150 working with OSx86!!!

 

I tried the iDeneb v1.5 last night but it didn't work - but with this thread I have a beautiful AceMac

 

On the Mic issue, I've downloaded Paul's Wind Pack, but can someone provide some instructions on exactly what steps to take? Or point me in the right direction?

 

Once this works, then I can use the Acer for Web, Email, iPhone Charging, Photo Backups, Skype

 

This is super.!!!!

 

Thanks

Did you installed video drivers correctly?

Could you tell me the steps please? (which driver you selected....)

Hi, I used the drivers I posted links to earlier. They work for the A150 and the HP mini too. Between the instructions in this thread and the ones in Aboshi's thread (instructions for HP mini, but between the two threads it can be done correctly).

Here is a copy and paste from my previous post in this thread:

"I used some info from this thread http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...173184&st=0 and also used the video drivers listed there for download (they worked for the hp mini and the A150).

If you have any other questions please let me know and I can try to combine the two tutorials into one that will work. :|

For those with questions on getting this to work I combined picchiant's tutorial with the one from Aboshi (located at http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...73184&st=0).

 

Here is one that will hopefully help those having issues putting iatkos 10.5.7 on the acer 150.

 

Here is the procedure:

 

Acer Aspire One - A150 (bcm43xx wireless card installed) 1.0gb ram / iAtkos_v7 / Leopard 10.5.7 (video, sound and wired network working)

 

Plug in your now bootable OS X Flash Drive, USB DVD, or USB HDD (depend on what medium your using for the install) Turn on the acer 150 and press F12. Now select the Flash Drive, USB DVD, or USB HDD you want to install from and keep pressing F8 and hit enter. If you do not keep pressing F8 you will white screen with an apple logo and then the system will reboot so make sure you keep pressing F8 when booting off of your drive! you should see a command line with boot:

now at the command line with boot: type cpus=1

it should look like this boot: cpus=1

then hit enter and you should boot into the OS X installer pretty fast if your installing from a flash drive. You can also use the -v command before cpus=1 this will show you any messages if you need to figure out what went wrong (if anything went wrong) Example: boot: -v cpus=1

If you get a panic and the system reboots or your stuck at a white screen with a circle with a slash going through it, just reboot and try again. (I am trying to remember if I needed to continue to press F8 with the acer - I know I did when I installed iatkos on the hp mini but not sure if i did on the A150).

 

1. The installer will now begin. Wait at the apple logo until a language selection screen is shown. Select your language and hit next.

2. Go to the top of the screen where it says utilities. From this menu select "Disk Utility"

3. Click on the Acer's Hard drive in the left pane.

4. Click on the "erase" tab

5. Under Volume format, select Mac OS Extended

6. Click Erase

(NOTE from Aboshi's tutorial: If you plan on ever dual booting or wanting partitions on your drive, now is the time to do it. You wont be able to partition/resize your drive after the install. If you would like to dual boot, go to the partition tab on you HD, and click the + button. Add a partition any size you like and assign it as "Free Space". You can format it later)

(My note - - -there are other methods of setting up a dual boot and XP or whatever else should be set up first)

7. After erasing is complete, exit the disk utility

8. Now click next and select your newly erased hard drive as the destination.

9.On the next screen you will see an option at the bottom that says "customize". Click on it and apply the following patches:

+ (Expand)

* (Select)

 

*iatkos v7 Main System (Installed By Default)

+Bootloader

*Chameleon v2 (Installed By Default)

+X86 Patches

+Decrypters (Unselect AppleDecypt)

*Dsmos (Select)

+Kernel

*9.50.0 KernelVoodoo (Select)

+ACPI

*x86 ACPI (Select)

+Drivers

(Skip VGA) NOT APPLICABLE TO ACER ASPIRE ONE A150 or D150 - Below is the Correct procedure to install the video with the proper resolution.

+Sound

*Voodoo HDA driver (Installed By Default)

+System

+PS/2 Mouse Keyboard (Only Select One)

*Apple Ps/2 Driver (Select)

+System

*Laptop Battery (Select)

+Network

+Wired

realteck 1000

+Wireless

*Broadcom BCM43xx (Dw1490,Dw1390,Dw1395) (Select) This Kext is only if you have already Purchased The(Dw1490 Cards).

*Post_Install Actions (Installed By Default)

 

That's it you can now continue with the installation.

 

Install will take about 15 mins. your computer will reboot when the install is finished.

Once the install is finished you will have a nice new shiny boot screen =) this is chameleon 2.1 RC you should see the Chameleon on top =)

At this point everything will work out of the box but the screen will be stuck in 800x600 with no selection for other resolutions yet so we will fix this in advance (or at least prepare to install proper video drivers).

 

You can also boot into OS X at this time first if you want to setup your account first then follow the steps below

 

So now that OS X is installed when the Acer 150 reboots you will see the Chameleon boot loader. press any key to enter setup. Once you press any key you then type -s (you should see boot: -s on the bottom left hand side of the screen), now press enter and it should boot you into single user mode.

with you get the command prompt it will look like this:

:/ root#

now type /sbin/fsck -fy and press enter

after it does its thing type: /sbin/mount -uw / and press enter

don't forget that / after -uw or you will not have write access. (also make sure to put the space between the w and the /).

 

Do this exactly to make things easier

Type: cd System/Library and press enter

Type: rm -r Extensions.mkext and press enter

Type: cd Extensions and press enter

Type: rm -r AppleIntelGMA*.* and press enter

Type: rm -r AppleIntelIntergrated*.* press tab and it will fill in the rest for you and press enter

Type: shutdown -r now

This will remove the kext cache and all of the Intel Graphic drivers because they do not work correctly (stuck at 800x600) and the system should now reboot. If all went well you should be at the screen to enter in all of your info and user account =)

 

Once you are at the desktop of OS X you can now install the video drivers from the Display Package Aboshi put together (I take no credit for the actual Drivers).

These are located at http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...st&id=51803

 

OSX86 tools can be downloaded from http://www.heavyhackintosh.blogspot.com/20...inal-10150.html

 

You can download them directly or download them on another computer and put the files on a flash drive or cd (which I did), just make sure to copy them to the Desktop to make things easier.

Once you extract The above two downloads to the Desktop you should have these folders:

OSXTools1.0.150

First

Second

 

Now Start OSXTools and click install kexts

browse to the dir First and select all (3) kexts

and click install.

After the kexts install with will pop up asking to reboot DO NOT REBOOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

if you reboot you will have to go into single user mode again and remove all the files again SO DO NOT REBOOT YET! CLICK CANCEL

Now open the folder Second and click on GMA950.pkg and a setup window will pop up.

click continue, click install put in your password if you have one and proceed. after the install you can now reboot.

reboot with flag -f (IMPORTANT THE FIRST TIME) then you can reboot without any option in the future.

Once you reboot you should be back at the OS X desktop but now with working 1024x600 resolution! you can now enable Quartz.

 

Enable Quartz

To enable Quartz open OSX86 Tools and click the Enable/Disable Quartz GL button. It will tell you the current status. If its disabled, feel free to enable it by clicking the button that says "Enable Quartz GL". after Quartz is enabled the system will need to rebooted.

 

You should now be fully working on OS X 10.5.7

 

Many thanks to picchiant and Aboshi for their tutorials. Hopefully this will help to make things easier for those new to OS X (like me, lol).

Yeah the previous commenter is correct. Use the other forum post to find the kexts (drivers) for the Graphics.

 

The mic is still a wonder though... any clear guidelines?

 

BUG NOTICE!!!

 

I find that the wired network connection does not work unless the ethernet cable is connect from boot... if not, it will never connect.

 

Hopefully when I get my DW1390 then that'll sort it... bought it on eBay for about €20
