Vanilla Install on MSI Wind

Recommended Posts

Hey appreciate the guide, I followed it from start to finish to a T yet i get this when I try to boot from the internal hd by itself, (without the USB installer).

 

Boot0: GPT

Boot0: testing

Boot0: done

Boot1: error

 

I dont have anything fancy going on, it's just OS X on this U100, AHCI enabled/disabled in BIOS didnt change a thing, set to enabled at the moment.

 

I CAN boot into my snow leopard desktop off the internal HD if I keep the USB installer plugged in, boot from it, and interrupt chameleon to pick my internal HD.

 

I can't understand what's wrong. If anyone here could help I'd really be thankful!

You haven't installed Chameleon fully onto your internal drive. This step is missing.

 

dd if=boot1h of=/dev/rdiskXsX

 

where X is the disk and partition number respectively of where you want your bootloader to be; either your EFI partition or your SL partition. Basically wherever you have your Extra folder.

Dalton63841, thanks for your very precise tuto!

 

Install SL without problems on my Wind u100.

 

Thank you for your great job.

I was very interested in using dashboard widget "deep sleep", to be able to hibernate (like windows) my wind under snow leopard.

 

Below is the link to download the widget:

Download Deep Sleep

 

Unfortunately, after hiberting and restarting, I get the message: "Not enough space to restore image. Press any key to proceed with normal boot."...

 

I follow also this guide http://forum.voodooprojects.org/index.php?topic=562.0 and recompile la last Chameleon 2.0 RC4 sources.

 

Find below the binaries of Chameleon 2.0 RC4 with deepsleep fixed!

 

Chameleon_2.0_RC4_r684_deepsleep_bin.tar.gz

 

You can now use the below EFI tutorial from Dalton63841 with last Chameleon bootloader and deep sleep (hibernate mode) fixed:

Hope this will be useful for somebody!!

Hi,

 

 

 

Tried on MSI U120. Everything appeared to install properly. When I reboot. The system appears to be loading. Then a screen pops up saying "You need to restart your computer. Hold down pwoer button". The machine keeps on doing this. I have powered off and on 5 times in a row? Any suggestions?

 

 

 

Thanks

Hi! I had a perfectly working 10.6 installation on my MSI Wind U100 with Broadcom BCM4312.

I have now the effect that it doesn´t get acctivated anymore when i activate Airport.

The card gets recognized by the kernel and shows up in system profiler under Airport as Third-Party Wireless Card.

 

Does anyone what i can test or do to reanimate my wireless network?

I have no clue what went wrong. I did´t change anything for weeks.

 

Thanks in advance!

I found a simple solution to my problems. I bootet into chameleon with "> mach_kernel -x"

That erased all cached blabla files. After rebooting without -x everything was fine again.

 

Can someone explain to me what really happened behind the scenes?

 

thx!

Am I the only one with a RALink WLAN card going for 10.6?

 

I'm trying too.. Ethernet works, but I cannot find any info about getting 10.6.1 to work with RALink.

 

If I do I will post.. For now hardwire will have to do...

Folks:

 

I *think* I've checked everywhere I should, but have found no solution to my problem. I've followed the guide step by step and have had no problem creating a properly-partitioned USB stick with a Leopard install on it (with one exception - Disk Utility won't let me create a partition without naming it).

 

On booting the MSI from the stick, the MSI goes through the grey Apple screen to the purple-stars OSX Leopard background, and then it hangs -- I see the "beachball", but never get anything else.

 

Any ideas about what is happening here?
