iportable snow leopard on D255E

11 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello, this is my first post, i hope you can help me!

I installed iportable snow leopard 10.6.2 on my acer aspire one d255e netbook with

intel atom n450 single core cpu and a intel gma3150 gpu.

The system runs just fine out of the box, but the graphics are stuck at 800x600!

I also tried to install netbookinstaller from version 0.8.3rc1 to 0.8.5pre with the result that the screen resolution seems to be fine BUT the netbook only boots to a blue screen were i can move the cursor around but besides that behaviour nothing else happens.

 

So please, help me! ;)

Wrote the boot arguments on my Powermac G5 quad to the apple.boot.plist.

So what's your prefered language?

I just edited the boot.plist with Graphics Enabler "yes" and Graphics Mode 1024x600x32 string.

And i installed gma3150.zip from merklort.

Wifi works cause of a modified kext i installed with kexthelper.
