Asus 1005p snow leopard install problem


1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm installing Snow Leopard 10.6 on an Asus 1005p.


I've followed more than one guide to the letter to the letter, and everything goes fine...to a point. However despite installing SL 10.6 and installing the extras and kexts as advised, running pfix a few times, the netbook will not boot from the internal drive.


Chameleon loads and depending on whether I hit a key, will offer the USB snow leopard install, or the internal hard drive.


But when I choose the internal drive there are issues I can't fathom. It looks like it is loading fine, but the grey Mac logo with grey spinning wheel below, suddenly has what looks like a traffic 'no entry' sign on the mac logo. Pictured attached


When I have installed and before the initial reboot, in sys preferences the internal drive is not offered as a start up disk.


Only the 'network' and 'USB Mac OSx'. And despite three installs, only once did I manage to get the netbook to boot from it's own drive.


I've repartitioned the HD more than once (GUID, Mac OS Jounraled) , and reinstalled but to no avail.


Any idea at all why the netbook will not boot properly ?

Advice gratefully received.
