I've been asked in pvt how to get 10.6.6 up and running on the eee901.. here is what I did.. please don't PM me use this thread instead..

 

 

-installed hazard 10.6.2 (installer options: kernel 10.6.2 atom, chameleon RC4, voodoo battery, voodoo monitor, voodooPS2trackpad, voodoo power, open halt restart and PS2 fix)

 

- removed SleepEnabler.kext and rebooted

 

- updated to 10.6.6 (downloaded the combo update from apple.com, not used the Software Update)

 

- installed TeaTeam kernel 10.6.0 before reboot

 

- installed kexts from this thread via Kext Utility: natit, AppleIntelGMA950, IntelIntegratedFramebuffer

 

- installed 10.6.0 compatible SleepEnabler.kext found on the web via kext utility (http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?s=&showtopic=242192&view=findpost&p=1622363)

 

 

.....that's all ;)

 

bye!!

Hi Moly82,

 

Sorry but I can't find these options in my hazard 10.6.1-10.6.2 iso: chameleon RC4, open halt restart and PS2 fix. Are you sure is this version?

 

Do you use 2503 original bios, don't you? Because I need this bios for a dual os with windows 7.

 

Thanks for your help.

hi, you are the second person who tells me this, that in their 10.6.1-10.6.2 hazard disc they can't find those options.. actually my dvd is called:

 

"Snow Leopard Client Server 10.6.2 SSE2/SSE3 Intel AMD by Hazard"

 

 

while I think yours is:

"Snow Leopard 10.6.1-10.6.2 Intel AMD made by Hazard"

 

 

..so very probably we have different discs..

 

by the way you should be able to proceed with the installation anyway, just select a different chameleon bootloader (and without the PSX2FIX you may need to connect an external usb mouse and keyboard, so get those first). You can install those kext/fix also later..

 

 

about the bios, I use the 1502 patched bios by kabyl, with no dsdt.aml file.

Also 2503 will work (and even better during the install as you will see all the screens properly, while with 1502 the visualization is not correct, I have to select some options without seeing them, "blind") but when everything is set up you should have bluetooth problems if you don't install a proper dsdt.aml file :unsure:

 

bye!

 

 

 

@ EVERYONE: can somebody post his working dsdt.aml file for bios 2503 and RAM=2 GB? THANKS!

Hello moly82

Thanks for your instructions, now that works great. Only a question: Do you know how to acces to the LeoHazard install DVD options? Default options are: 64 bit EFI, 64 bit kernel boot, 32 bit processor and 32 bit kernel. I'd like to modify the kernel boot and efi to 32 bit (typing -v arch=i386 before installation) but access with pf8 doesn't work.

 

thanks

Hello moly82

hi, I dunno exactly what you mean.. also because I'm pretty sure I'm running 32bit without having done anything special, I've just installed OSX as I wrote above..

 

if I type uname -a in a terminal I get:

 

Darwin xxx.local 10.6.0 Darwin Kernel Version 10.6.0: Wed Nov 10 18:13:17 PST 2010; root:xnu-1504.9.26~3/RELEASE_I386 i386

 

the "i386" at the end means I'm on 32bit AFAIK..

 

by the way if you want to be sure about that I think you could just add "arch=i386" and "-v" in your "/Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.Boot.plist" file.. "kernel flags" section..

 

mine is like this right now:

 

<key>Kernel</key>

<string>mach_kernel</string>

<key>Kernel Flags</key>

<string></string>

<key>Wake</key>

<string>no</string>

<key>Timeout</key>

<string>1</string>

 

 

 

bye!

Hi,

Thanks, I've the same information as you. But I don't now why an application named Startup Mode Selector says: 64 bit EFI, 64 bit Kernel boot mode, 32 bit processor and 32 bit kernel. Probably it hasn't any relevance.

 

P.S. I suppose you have a 901 XP because you says that all runs ok, haven't you? and I can't find Mac drivers for my Linux webcam.

 

bye

I got a "900A" from woot a couple of years ago. This is the one that doesn't have a camera and has a 1.6GHz Atom (more like a 901HA, I guess than the usual 900A). I put in 2GB of memory and a 32GB flash drive. It's been happily running Easy Peasy, but I'd much rather have OS X on it.

 

Tried this guide verbatim and Chameleon starts up, but OS X panics early in the boot process. I assume it's a bad driver of some sort, but I'm not sure which one. Can someone with this version of the 900A tell me which extensions they're using and avoiding?

Hello,

I hope someone can help me here as I couldn't find any answer to my question so far.

I decided two weeks ago to install OSX on my mothers EeePC 901. Everything worked fine a part from WiFi. I install the Realtek Utility Drivers and was able, using the utility, to connect to my WiFi but wasn't able to use it since OSX didn't register the adapter. It would just show me two Ethernet Adapters, where one is working once I plug in a cable.

 

I then decided to order an Airport card from ebay for around 25 € (http://www.ebay.at/itm/170844181873?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1497.l2649#ht_4564wt_1163 ) which arrived yesterday. Unfortunately nothing changed. OSX doesn't find any airport adapter whatsoever.

 

Any ideas?

 

A part from that, its all fine, its a bit slow though, but should be far enough for a little bit of surfing.

 

thanks in advance,

Look at the last line. It's the CPU Power management kext. Did you install that yourself? What did you use to install it? Did you repair disk permissions after? What OS are you trying to run? You need to provide full details if you want help...
