HP Mini 1000 FULL Install w/ iATKOS v7 10.5.7 Fully Working!

Recommended Posts

if its not preselected no.

thanks,both decrypters are preselected (along with some other things under x86 patches) - it looks like for decrypters either one or the other should be selected, but both are selected. With the other items highlighted under x86 patches - do I uncheck the other ones other than those listed in the tutorial?

 

I am going to try again on the install - as I have gotten to the chameleon screen - but can't seem to get :/ root# to show up. It boots up a bunch of things on the screen then go to a white square at the bottom - it doesn't show :/ root#. Did I do something wrong?

 

 

Thanks again!

whatever was preselected you can just leave, so don't uncheck anything. Just add what I listed in the tut.

 

when chameleon comes up press F8 a few times so you can see boot: they type -s and hit enter.

Thanks for the help, I got it installed with no other problems to a 1010NR (only a 8GB SSD drive, so not to much space left on it). It seems to work good so far.

Thanks again. :)

I can't see the "Continue" or "Next" or whatever it should say buttons because of the resolution, to procede with the installation, what can I do to continue?

Read the entire thread this was posted already and post what model Mini you have.

I did and I saw the question brought up but not an asnwer, maybe I missed it, I apologize.

 

I have a HP Mini 110.

 

I followed the directions exactly, putting iATKOS v7 on a flash drive, and first I had the HFS+ partition error many times, then one time it worked (but I don't know why...)

 

When it did finally work, I couldn't click next. So I used the same Flash Drive, reformatted it and used it to put Windows 7 on the machine because I didn't have time to keep messing around with it.

 

Now, I can't seem to get past the HFS+ partition error again. I'm like going around in circles... any help would be much appreciated.

 

I currently have Win 7 on the netbook, and Win 7 on a desktop, so that's what I have at my disposal in terms of getting OSX on the Mini.

No problem =) You might need to redownload a copy of iATKOS.

I would give that a shot first before you move any farther.

I had to deal with this problem. I made to copys of the dvd. I put one in my external dvd drive attached to my netbook, and one to a computer with a higher resolution. Using the computer with the higher resolution I figured out what combination of "tab" and "space" would select the nessicary install options.

 

Install went flawlessly. Once installed, on first boot, you will get a message saying that mac os x setup asssistant cant be run on this monitor. Click ok. Follow the install instructions for the GMA950. Once all the kexts are installed and you install the pkg, reboot into single user mode. Follow the normal steps to mount the disk. Once mounted "rm -r /var/db/.AppleSetupDone" which activates the setup assistant.

 

Good Luck

If you just want a single boot, hackintosh you won't have any problems, but if you want dual boot let me know, i figured that out too. The win7 boot loader doesnt work with chameleon out of the box.

^^

I set up my Mini for single boot so I only have OS X on it. So if you guys are running into problems trying to dual boot hopefully the above post will help you out =)

 

There is also a small issue with the sound, the sound works perfectly ...but to adjust the volume properly you have to go into the VoodooHDA preference pane and adjust it from PCM, But I have come up with a quick fix.

 

1) Remove the VoodooHDA.PrefPane (just drag it to the trash can)

2) Remove the VoodooHDA.kext (System/Library/Extensions)

3) Use OSXTools to reinstall VoodooHDA.kext (link below)

I had problems with using a flash drive and the windows 7 bootloader. I would try burning it to a dvd. Thats what worked for me once i put win 7 on.

Have you followed the directions?

 

1) When you power up hit F9

2) Select flash drive and spam F8

3) At the prompt type cpus=1

4) Start the install

 

If you do not type cpus=1 it will not work at all. take it one step farther and see what errors your getting by typing -v cpus=1

 

Also are you putting the install on the flash drive within windows?

If you are I cant help you there at all because I have not tried to use the install method to the flash drive from windows. I have a desktop I dual boot with OS X and I use that to install to my flash drive.

I dont think he even gets to the darwin bootloader where he has the opprotunity to type cpus=1. Once i installed windows 7, after pressing f9 and choosing my usb hard-drive to boot, it no longer worked.

I managed to get it working.

 

For whatever reason, from Windows 7, using the method of formatting it and then using dmacc, I wasn't able to create a bootable USB.

 

So I used these steps http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=144478

 

And it's working now, so hopefully anyone else having this problem finds this helpful.

 

And @Zach Berger, thanks for your tip to boot the DVD on another computer and look at the tab/space combos, that helped me greatly.

So lets start from scratch so we can figure out every ones issues with dual booting Windows 7 and OS X.

 

If your going to dual boot you must install Windows first on the first partition.

1) Make 2 partitions the first one will have to have Windows 7 installed on it.

2) Install Windows 7

3) Install OS X on 2nd partition (use disk utility in the OS X installer)

4) Now we will have to setup chain0 in Windows 7 boot or you will not be able to load OS X

 

to find chain0 search these forums I'm sure there is plenty of posts on where to download it and how to use BCDEDIT on vista/windows7 to add it to the windows boot loader.

 

 

All this is assuming you were able to install OS X, also if you were able to install OS X and chameleon and it somehow fuct your mbr so you cant even boot windows 7 just load up the windows 7 installer and go to recovery console and type FIXMBR and hit enter. Then you will have the windows 7 boot loader on the MBR

I have been able to get to disk utility to format the drive, but once I do, and I close disk utility, it just shows me this screen http://img35.imageshack.us/img35/705/snc00004w.jpg .. I havent found anyway to move the installer screen so i can get down to the buttons..

 

 

 

 

Also I have tried both External HD, and External DVD drives..

 

O HAI,

 

So, I had the same issue when installing iDeneb v.1.3 on my 110. What you have to do is from this screen, after running the partition, click on the welcome text and hit tab twice, then space bar. This effectively tabs to the 'continue' button, which is hidden because the screen is too small to show the whole thing. This will then take you to a screen to accept the T&C, but you should be able to see the button to accept.

 

Next, it'll ask you to select the drive to install on - but uh oh, the buttons are gone again! No worries - just click on the HD it needs to install to, then hit tab THREE times, followed by the space bar. The first tab should highlight the drive you just selected, and the next two are to cycle to the 'next' button.

 

PLEASE NOTE: If you're using USB to install, it may show that drive as an option as well. If it does, you'll probably need to hit tab FOUR times in order to get it to the 'proceed' button. If it messes up, it'll go back to the previous screen. Experiment a little with the number of tabs you need to press, it'll work eventually.

 

Now finally it says 'ready to install' or something like that. From here you MUST press tab three times, followed by the space bar, in order to get to the customization screen. If you don't, your install will failt. Once you check all the stuff required, it'll take you back to this screen, where you should then press tab twice and then the space bar. Et voila, installation should proceed normally!

 

I'm very interested in hearing how iATKOS runs for you, since iDeneb wouldn't let me ugrade to 10.5.7, and with 10.5.5 my battery life is absolutely horrendous.

 

Thanks!

Thanks a million for the tutorial I followed it step by step and everything works wonderully. The only problem is that wifi is still not working. Is there a fix? Did I miss a crucial step? I made sure to click on the broadcom option during the install.

os x is just no good without internet!

The toggle seems to be on and lit blue also.

 

do you have a broadcom wireless card?

I'm using the stock card that came with the 1035nr and its a broadcom so you have to select the BCM43xx driver or you wont have internet. Also I know some people have issues with the broadcom driver where you have to actually slide the wifi switch during the boot up of OS X, I have not had that issue though.
