Installed Sleepenabler.kext into /Extra/Extensions. Updated kernel cache using kextutility and did a reboot.

 

 

* Lidsleep does a hibernate(deepsleep) and power off. However, it cannot recover during the wake up.

* System becomes non responsive after enabling sleep enabler on DP2 and behaves similar to DP4.

 

For me its NOT Working :-(. So I removed it from /Exta/Extensions.

I think my wifi card doesnt work with osx...

 

On ebay, on the picture stand: BCM94322HM8L (this works with osx),

but what I got is a BCM943225HMP1A...

 

I think there is the problem.

Finally, root caused the problem. What you have received is NOT a Dell DW 1510 BCM94322 as you had thought earlier. It is a BCM943225 also called as BRCM1045. BCM943225 is a wireless combo card with Bluetooth built in.

Here is list of Wifi / Wifi combo cards manufactured by Broadcom which lists your card.

That means there is something different you have in your EeePC1201N configuration which we don't.

For the benefit of everyone could you please give the following details

 

1. Are you using 2/3/4 GB dsdt files?

2. What version of Chameleon are you using?

3. Which version of kernel(dp1/dp2/dp3/dp4) are you using (ls -l output of /mach_kernel*) and have you upgraded to 10.7.1?

4. Are you booting in 32bit or 64bit mode?

5. Do you have bluetooth enabled in BIOS and also Bluetooth ON while you enable sleep?

6. What partition scheme(GUID or MBR) are you using? Do you have dual boot configuration?

7. Have you enabled Audio( swapped AppleHDA.kext IOAudiofamiliy.kext)

8. Can you post/upload the following files for our reference.

/Extra/Extensions,

smbios.plist and

dsdt.aml

Chameleon Bootloader

com.apple.Boot.plist

org.chameleon.Boot.Plist

I installed Chameleon (1203, 1393) to my HD more time, then I get boot0 GPT Error, I cannot boot back to osx lion, only with Installer_Lion boot stick.

Is there a simpier way to install Chameleon again ? I tried all the methods, I deleted boot file first, but always boot0 gpt error.

 

I have read about a Terminal process, I did it, nothing.

 

Anyone has a simple idea ?

Thanks for your cooperation and providing the details. Couple of more questions regarding sleep.

 

Does sleep from the menubar & lid sleep works for you?

Does deep sleep(hibernate) works for you?

Can you resume through Chameleon once the system power off after deep sleep?

Let me quickly tell you how Chameleon works.

In a nutshell, Chameleon, the EFI boot loader has three binary files which needs to be installed at three different location of your hard disks for you to boot OSX.

1. boot0 or boot0hfs

2. boot1h

3. boot file

 

 

The first file boot0 or boot0hfs has to go to the first sector of the whole HARDDISK. It is the first stage of hybrid Chameleon boot loader whose function is to identify hfs partition labels in the disk and bootstrap into active, bootable, hfs partition

The Second file boot1h sits in the first two sectors(1 and 2) of the bootable hfs partition. Control is given to boot1h through boot0 .

The third file boot is the one which emulates EFI and boots the OS X kernel.

 

To fix the incomplete boot loader configuration,

1. Boot using Mac OS X Lion USB installer.

2. In the Initial welcome screen, go to menubar and click the utilities drop down menu

3. open Disk utility

4. Locate your OS X installation partition. Click on info. Note down the OS X partition. It will be under Disk Identitfier. Be sure to use the correct one. it will be in the form

diskXsY ( eg: Disk Identifier : disk0s3 )

where X is the disk number and Y is the slice or partition number in the disk.

 

5. Close/quit the disk utility.

6. Open the Terminal from utilities drop down menu

7. cd to the folder where you have Chameleon binaries boot0, boot1h, boot files

 

Chameleon binaries are usually under /usr/standalone/i386

 

Type: cd /usr/standalone/i386

Type: ./fdisk440 -f boot0hfs -u -y /dev/rdisk0

Type: dd if=boot1h of=/dev/rdisk0s3 (your disk Identifier from step 4)

 

Edit: Copy the boot file to the mounted root directory of the OS X partition.

Type: cp boot /

 

To find the mounted root directory path,

 

Type: mount

 

/dev/disk1s3 on / (hfs, local, journaled)

devfs on /dev (devfs, local, nobrowse)

map -hosts on /net (autofs, nosuid, automounted, nobrowse)

map auto_home on /home (autofs, automounted, no browse)

/dev/disk0s3 on /Volumes/Lion (hfs, local, journaled) (Note down the directory path name of the mounted OSX partition. step 4)

/dev/disk0s1 on /Volumes/WIN7_150GB (ntfs, local, read-only, noowners)

/dev/disk0s2 on /Volumes/FAT32_54GB (msdos, asynchronous, local, noowners)

/dev/disk0s6 on /Volumes/25GB_FAT32 (msdos, asynchronous, local, noowners)

/dev/disk0s7 on /Volumes/BACKUP_DISK (msdos, asynchronous, local, noowners)

/dev/disk0s8 on /Volumes/SPACE_NTFS_137GB (ntfs, local, read-only, no owners)

 

In this case it is /Volumes/Lion/

Now copy the boot file to the mounted OS X partition's path name.

 

Type: cp boot /Volumes/your_mounted_OSX_partiton_path ( in this case /Volumes/Lion/ )

 

Type: reboot

Thats it!.

Type: cp boot /

 

Type: reboot

First of all, thanks for your patience, I have already read the Chameleon Wizard topic, but now I see clearly, on my (bootable) Lion installer were no files on that directory, I collect them, and fdisk440 also, everything is ok, but on the last step when I type cp boot / I get a message read only filesystem.

How must be written to skip this?

OK. Forget the step.

 

The last step should be two steps.

First run the command in the terminal

$ mount

/dev/disk0s3 on /Volumes/Lion (hfs, local, journaled)

(remember step 4)

 

This will list all the partition the OS X has mounted. One of the partition is the where OSX is installed on your DISC.

Note down the directory where OS X has mounted ( in this case it is /Volumes/Lion)

 

Now do a cp relative from that directory.

 

i.e

instead of cp boot to /

do

cp boot /Volumes/Lion/

This is from my Terminal:

Jordes-MacBook-Air:~ Jorde$ mount

/dev/disk0s2 on / (hfs, local, journaled)

devfs on /dev (devfs, local, nobrowse)

map -hosts on /net (autofs, nosuid, automounted, nobrowse)

map auto_home on /home (autofs, automounted, nobrowse)

/dev/disk1s2 on /Volumes/Installer_Lion (hfs, local, nodev, nosuid, noowners)

Jordes-MacBook-Air:~ Jorde$

 

but here I can see only /dev/disk0s2 on / (hfs, local, journaled), so the same as cp boot /

Or not? My Lion HD name is eeeHD, so maybe cp boot /Volumes/eeeHD

 

but ok, I don't know, but I did it also manual, I copied the boot file to the root directory, but I always get back this:

 

boot0 GPT

boot0 Test

Looks like the partition eeeHD is not getting mounted in your case.

You can mount the partition manually using the Disk utility.

 

if you have copied boot file to /Volumes/eeeHD, remove the file /Volumes/eeeHD

rm /Volumes/eeeHD

 

Close the terminal. Open disk utility.

Select your disk on the left. Now Mount gets high lighted. Now click on mount to mount your OSX partition.

Quit Disk utility.

 

Open terminal.

type: mount

You should see the your eeeHD being mounted.

 

Copy the boot file now.

 

cp boot /Volumes/eeeHD/

 

Make sure your hfs partition(eeeHD) is marked active for Chameleon to boot. Active flag is usually changed to Windows, when windows is installed (dual boot)

 

To check,

run,

fdisk -y /dev/rdisk0

and look for a leading *

That partition is the active partition.

 

If windows partition is active, you have two options,

1. Change the active partition to OS X

2. copy boot0hfs to first sector of disk, instead of boot0

 

./fdisk440 -f boot0hfs -u -y /dev/rdisk0

Thanks for your cooperation and providing the details. Couple of more questions regarding sleep.

 

Does sleep from the menubar & lid sleep works for you?

Does deep sleep(hibernate) works for you?

Can you resume through Chameleon once the system power off after deep sleep?

The output of power settings.

$ pmset -g live

 

No problem at all.

 

* Sleep works from both the lid and the menubar

 

* Hibernation looks like it is saving the image ok but will not resume ( I never tested this with dp4 and 32bit. Does it work with that config?)

 

*$ pmset -g live

 

Active Profiles:

Battery Power -1

AC Power -1*

Currently in use:

hibernatemode 0

lidwake 1

womp 1

networkoversleep 0

sleep 0 (imposed by 49, 49)

ttyskeepawake 1

disksleep 10

hibernatefile /var/vm/sleepimage

autorestart 0

panicrestart 157680000

displaysleep 3

 

 

Shame hibernation does not work however I personally don't use the feature. Chameleon reports an error on bootup from deep sleep something about not being able to restore the image. I can post the specifics if you need them.

 

Normal sleep on the other hand is very quick to sleep and resume.

A quick look at your pmset values, You have disabled hibernation totally.

...

Currently in use:

hibernatemode 0

lidwake 1

...

The default value of hibernate mode is set to 3.

In your case Old style sleep mode is set with hibernatemode value set to 0. No hibernation(deep sleep).

In my case it is set to 5. So sleep was not working for me.

 

Also, as you have noticed, deep sleep does NOT work. So sleep works partially.

 

 

How to set/change a hibernate mode using pmset(1)

 

$ sudo pmset -a hibernatemode mode

 

Different hibernanate mode values and their meanings.

0 - Old style sleep mode, with RAM powered on while sleeping, safe sleep disabled, and super-fast wake.

1 - Hibernation mode, with RAM contents written to disk, system totally shut down while “sleeping,” and slower wake up, due to reading the contents of RAM off the hard drive.

3 - The default mode on machines introduced since about fall 2005. RAM is powered on while sleeping, but RAM contents are also written to disk before sleeping. In the event of total power loss, the system enters hibernation mode automatically.

5 - This is the same as mode 1, but it’s for those using secure virtual memory (in System Preferences -> Security).

7 - This is the same as mode 3, but it’s for those using secure virtual memory.

 

Go through the man pages of pmset(1) for more info

$ man pmset

 

Edit: Hibernate on Mac OS X Lion does not work due to the Chameleon error.

header read size 200

Incorrect image signature

Mac OS X lion uses encrypted swap .i.e Secure Virtual Memory is on always. There is no way to disable it using GUI.

/Library/Preferences/com.apple.virtualMemory.plist:

<dict>

<key>DisableEncryptedSwap</key>

<true/>

</dict>

</plist>

This issue is being fixed in Chameleon.

 

Please see the following bug for more info.

2. copy boot0hfs to first sector of disk, instead of boot0

 

./fdisk440 -f boot0hfs -u -y /dev/rdisk0

 

 

 

I think the problem is somehow not here. I can copy this boot file manually also, there is an app, Houdini.app, with this one all the hidden files can be seen, can be deleted, copied. But it doesn't matter I can copy or not, somehow cannot boot. There's no error message during copy, terminal commands, but always get back boot0 error.

And cannot see booting, this error message comes immediately.

It is like my HD not ok... Sy wrote, for this procedure HD has to be smaller than 1TB, but my one is 500GB.

Others wrote somehow Western Digital HD is not so good for boot, but I find it a little bit strange, an HD is an HD...

I cannot comment about WD disks in general. All that boot0 error says, is that Chameleon cannot find boot1h in any partition in your disk. Ideally it should have worked and booted your OS X.

 

Good to know about Houdini.app . However, this app cannot be used for installing/writing boot0 into the boot sector of disk and boot1h into first two sectors of OSX partition.

 

You can give a try again from step 1 and see if it works :-)

Thats what I did now, but the same result, and no error or other messages, I did everything good I think.

I give a try now for boot0hfs instead of boot0.

Just a question, if I see the Installer_Lion usb stick, that I did with the last Bootmaker from Crazyjuice, has to be inside somewhere these files? (boot0, boot0hfs, boot1h.... etc)

Because I did my Bootmaker, I installed for the Bootmaker Chameleon 1203, I installed without problems OSX Lion, but these files are NOT on the usb stick, I copied them to the usr/standalone/i386 directory, but these files were not here or any other place on the Installer_Lion usb stick.

Is it normal? a bootable stick, but these boot files are not on the stick?

 

 

 

I did again all the steps, eeeHD was mounted,I tried boot0 and boot0hfs also. No error messages, perfect, but its like these boot files from a downloaded chameleon are useless, like empty or from copying somehow had problems.

Well, repeating the step 9, everything is fine and did a fresh install. Thanks a lot, nasseau and crazyjuice and to everyrone that made this possible :-)

 

Edit: Just enabled audio, network, trim and some few hacks. I miss the 64 bit kernel. I'm trying in com.apple.Boot.plist with:

 

<key>Kernel Flags</key>
<string>arch=x86_64 npci=0x2000</string>

 

From the Extra folder, but seems that doesn't work.

 

Lion looks really nice :D

 

Thanks a lot again.

 

What method did you use to enable trim? I ask because i used Trim Enabler but i cannot erase me free space. I can only hope and assume it is Trim-ming in the backgound.

Theses two files boot0 and boot1h are installed on the USB sticks boot sectors. So it is not visible under filesystem once USB stick is prepared. You can only see boot file inside hfs+ filesystem. You can find all three files inside the Bootmaker. You can see these files under /usr/standalone/i386 if you install these files using Chameleon pkg.

 

 

 

You may want refer the following topics to get betting understanding of Disk layout/partition/filesystem.

1. partition types

2. Disk partitioning

3. boot sectors,

4. GUID_partiton_table and

5. HFS+ filesystems.

 

I did again all the steps, eeeHD was mounted,I tried boot0 and boot0hfs also. No error messages, perfect, but its like these boot files from a downloaded chameleon are useless, like empty or from copying somehow had problems.

Good that you are able to boot Mac OS X Lion

Theses two files boot0 and boot1h are installed on the USB sticks boot sectors. So it is not visible under filesystem once USB stick is prepared. You can only see boot file inside hfs+ filesystem. You can find all three files inside the Bootmaker. You can see these files under /usr/standalone/i386 if you install these files using Chameleon pkg.

 

 

 

You may want read about the following topics to get betting understanding of Disk layout/partition/filesystem.

1. partition types

2. Disk partitioning

3. boot sectors,

4. GUID_partiton_table and

5. HFS+ filesystems.

 

 

Good that you are able to boot Mac OS X Lion

 

 

 

Ok, you are right, I don't know so much about these things, but till now I was always able to install osx on different netbooks, I had also dell mini 10v, compaq-hp mini 1000, 1201nl and now 1201n.

 

If I make a fresh install of Lion, and have to install Chameleon on it, I start to be nervous, Chameleon Wizard always crash at the first time,install start, and then unexpectedly quit, and from this moment started my torture.

 

In Chameleon Wizard topic I have read about some versions which are crashed, but seems to be in my case all of them ?

It is like my boot sector in my HD defended by sg, If I want to install there sg, doesn't work or work but without success.

I did really everything like you suggested, every steps made without problems, boot0 or boot0hfs copied, but after restart boot0 GPT error.

I do again a fresh install but before I try to download a 1000% good Chameleon, or I install r914 instead of r1203.

 

BTW if I installed my usb stick with r1203 in the Bootmaker install, may I use another Chameleon version (lower) at all?

Pardon me if i am in the middle of a sub-topic.

Just got mine up on Lion last night after a quick perusal of the beginning of this forum. So now here i am reading the entire thing, but half way through the reading i find i have to get in and post a little.

 

Some folk seem to have had trouble just getting the prepared USB to boot. I did too. I immediately and simply stuck into another slot a stick i knew to be bootable that i used for installing Lion onto my desktop. I let the stick boot, but selected my 1201 installer stick to actually boot. Magic.

 

As i am still only halfway through reading the threads, perhaps i will read my answer soon, but i have another problem besides my afore stated Trim support question (BTW, Sys Profiler says trim is on but i am wary because i have read that Trim Enabler is a sham.) Early on in this thread MAS was an issue. I tried the two stated solutions but no joy for me.

 

And sleep in 64 would be another thing.

 

Otherwise all is very well with Lion and my 1201N.

 

Onward reading.

 

(Half hour goes by)

 

 

Okie dokey - sleepenabler kext worked like a charm (64mode.) Lid, Fn, and Menu sleep all work and resume without a hitch.

 

MAS and Trim.

EDIT : These too steps were also not enough for me, I did also with [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] from Tonymac a system profiler change to macbook pro instead of macbook air, this serial is good for apple store, and I think ethernet kext has to be installed (L1c), then you can erase network interface plist,but apple store during must be closed.

Sorry if it wasn't clear, but till these steps didn't make, I didn't have success.

i know this is of topic question but... i've to ask!!!!!

 

do i really need defragmentation on ssd drive in windows 7????

 

i found some tweaks

 

http://www.mydellmini.com/forum/windows-7/...eed-tweaks.html

 

???

Nope - the way i understand it, and i am super new to playing on SSD, is fragging occurs on an HDD because its all radial. Defragging optimizes the drive from the perspective of spinning. SSD OTOH is, well it doesn't spin, so it doesn't matter if a bit of file is near the center of the disc and another bit of the same file is on the rim because its all a relatively equidistant matrix. Its like RAM.

 

My biggest concern for my precious SSD (wich will be just another piece of tech lying around in five years) is if i cannot properly get Trim working, it will slowly die. To counter act this i have come up with the scheme of cloning this current install with CCC, putting it onto a normal HDD, wiping the SSD and installing Windows on it, enable Trim in that environment, clean it up, wipe it again, then reclone the OSX install back onto it.

 

Not much more trouble than anything else we do!
