Novatech X10 Netbook

Recommended Posts

Hi, this is how to get a fully working install of Snow Leopard 10.6.7 on a Novatech X10

 

1. Fresh install of 10.6.3 using Chameleon Bootloader

2. Update to 10.6.7 using combo update - DON'T REBOOT!

3. Install chameleon 2.0 rc5 r699

4. Install the following into E/E

  • FakeSMC.kext
  • VoodooPS2Controller.kext
  • VoodooPS2Trackpad.kext
  • AtherosL1cEthernet.kext

5. Install/replace the following into S/L/E

  • VoodooHDA.kext
  • 27aeAppleIntelGMA950.kext
  • 27aeAppleIntegratedFramebuffer.kext
  • AppleACPIBatteryManager.kext
  • IO80211Family.kext

6. Install dsdt.aml

7. Install SMBios.plist

8. Install com.apple.boot.plist

9. Install mach_kernel_atom_10.6.6

10. Rebuild caches

11. Reboot

 

This can now mostly be done with an installer, if you would like to use this please download the zip file from here

 

Then follow these instructions

 

1. Fresh install of 10.6.3 using Chameleon Bootloader

2. Update to 10.6.7 using combo update - DON'T REBOOT!

3. Download and extract Novatech X10 - 10.6.7.zip

4. Open Terminal and run 'sudo -s' (without quotes) enter your password

5. cd to the Novatech X10 - 10.6.7 directory 6. Install dsdt.aml

7. In Terminal run './installer' (without quotes)

8. When prompted, select your partition

9. Press i to run the automated script

10. Once it has finished install the contents of 'Place these in SLE' to S/L/E

11. Install kext utility from 'Install these'

12. Rebuild permissions

13. Install the Keyboard Layout located in 'Place contents in Library Keyboard Layouts' to Library/Keyboard Layouts, and then select the input source 'British' (the one without the flag) from preferences -> languages -> input sources.

14.Reboot

 

You should now have Q/E, audio, webcam, ethernet, wireless, sleep, restart, bluetooth, 2 finger scrolling, 1 finger scrolling...etc

 

The keyboard layout has been customised for a british keyboard and has mappings to what is on the actual key. The cmd, alt and ctrl keys have not been moved, so alt=cmd, win=alt ctrl = ctrl.

 

The function keys also work.

 

I have set this up as a macbook air so Remote Disc is working nicely, as obviously this netbook doesn't have a cd/dvd drive so it's quite handy to have.

 

I hope this helps someone out as I've been working on it for quite some time.
