HP mini 110-3700

30 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hallo from beautiful Greece.

 

I just bought an HP mini 110-3700ev and i'm trying to install ideneb 1.3, but when it loads it shows me a stop sign and it keeps spining.

 

Please if anyone knows let me know !!!

 

Thank you

Marios

All I can say is Good luck.

 

I'm in the exact same boat with a new HP MINI 110-3744ca

 

I've gotten exactly as far as you did and had the exact same result. I've been trying this for going on 10 days now and haven't found a way past this. I'd originally thought it might be the version of iDeneb so I tried a few. Then I tried the iAtkos, same thing. It's apparently an issue with the bios not recognizing the USB HD or something to that effect.

 

Since there were a few walkthroughs starting from OSX i've now borrowed a friend's macbook and am trying the disk utility USB prep instead of the Windows XP/7 prep, to which I found little to nothing.

 

Let me know if you have any progress and I'll do the same if I manage to stumble my way through to some sort of anything.

I'll even add an update as I've been at this all day (hard to believe).

 

Being that I now had the borrowed Macbook in hand I scrapped the ideneb-onto-usb-through-DDMac-on-XP plan and began the process of preping my 8GB USB drive using the retail Snow Leopard DVD + Netbookbootloader, following the bootloader + retail + netbook installer guide/strategy.

 

I just ran into yet another wall when surprise surprise, Netbookbootloader doesn't work with Tiger - just 10.6+.

 

SO, reverting back to iDeneb v3 10.5, using DDMac, I get this error which is apparently somewhat common but I can't find a fix:

 

EHCI Controller unable to take control of Bios

Apple.... unable to obtain ownership

UIMInitialize - Error occurred

unable to initialize UIM

 

I've tried searching each of these 4 lines in the forums and thus far have drawn blanks.....

Hi, i have a hp mini 110-3710 and have the same problem (stuck on apple logo, spinning wheel, stop sign).

I use the -v and says, "Still Waiting For Root Device ", basically the same thing that happens to apateonas...

I'll try to search and find a solution, if i find something i`ll post it here, it would be cool and i'll really appreciate if anyone who finds a solution could post it here, thanks!

I reinstalled with the chameleon Rc4 bootloader and installing various options according to my hardware and after reboot i used the option cpus=1 and i was able to boot into OSX. Now the problems are that my usb ports doesn't seem to be functional, there's no wifi and a couple of other things... well it's a progress...

Heck yah that's progress- that's fantastic news. Thanks for that link, I'll follow it tonight and see what happens. Perhaps I can stumble my way through with XP, or even grab a friend's Win7 laptop for the prep/setup.

 

Thanks again - keep me/us posted and I'll do the same!

Hey Marci Rossi

 

Any further updates? I went through that guide you recommended and am now installing as we speak. I chose chameleon RC4 as you recommended, along with the internet options in the optional category.

 

I assume this is just another series of steps to get it working but at LEAST I am now installing it - I consider this a HUGE win.

 

MANY thanks to you. I guess the others that know more about this don't actively monitor these netbook forums much.

I can't seem to get further than the chameleon screen, every option I try using results in almost instant reboot. It's so fast I can't see the error text that pops up.

 

I keep trying the reinstall with different options but to no avail

Install the Rc4 chameleon, the atom kernel, sata ahci support or something like that, i don't remember exactly, battery, apple ps/2 drivers, and whatever else you think it will need, but don't install any usb fixes or drivers. In the reboot write: "-v" "cpus=1" and "UsbFix=Yes" without quotes and hopefully you will be loading succesfully into OS X

Thanks, I'm going to try it now, I'll let you know.

OK it worked - booted into OSX. Going to start the process of testing and seeing what works/doesn't.

 

I think I may have to re-install. Neither USB, ethernet or wifi are working. It doesn't recognize any PCI ethernet cards installed.

 

Which ethernet option did you select when you installed, can you remember?

I installed the ethernet driver from the realtek website, it detects the ethernet (which is useless because there's no ethernet port) but the wifi doesn't work, probably it has something to do with airport and i can't enable the QE/CI. For the usb problems add the flag: "USBBusFix:Yes"

What do you mean there's no ethernet port? On mine there is.

 

What do you mean by 'add the flag'? A startup option? I can grab the realtek driver but I have no way of getting it on the mini currently. I've tried re-installing about 5 times today with various ethernet settings... no dice so far.

 

 

To the wifi - I've read it's not do-able on 10.6 but these threads were 1-2 years old so I'm not sure there's a fix yet.

 

 

Edit: ahhh - I think you mean add USBBusFix:Yes to the "-v -cpus=1 usbfix=yes" after reboot?

Damn... still can't get either an ethernet connection or a wifi (obviously). USB still doesn't work even with the USBBusFix:Yes added to the boot option

Yeah i meant to add that option on the boot. Not sure why it doesn't work for you... are you sure you didn't installed any USB option? Try the -v and see if anything looks weird, any kind of error that would point us to why you can't use USB. On my netbook i don't have a ethernet port... it's only wireless for me, i really hope there's a fix for that.

Same thing here. USB doesn't work, just my USB mouse.

 

Mine has a ethernet port (upper right corner), wifi doesn't work.

 

Is there any kext for wifi card?

As far as I know wifi does not work on the HP Mini 110 series with 10.6.x... need to drop down to 10.5 or swap the wifi card with an HP Mini 1000 wifi card.. apparently.

 

 

I started down the 10.5 stream yesterday cause I wanted wifi to work. I'm using iDeneb's v1.4 to try a 10.5 install as we speak. It apparently is fully functional with our series of Minis. Will advise... I think what's most challenging in all this is in my infamiliarity with any of the terms for anything. I'm still unsure what a kext is, although I think it's PC brother would be a driver... lol.

 

 

 

Marco - the ethernet plug is covered by a flap that you can detach. Should be there for all 3xxx series Minis.

Well iDeneb 1.4 didn't work AT ALL via USB.... ugh what a process.

 

.. Trying the iDeneb v3 10.5.5 now.

 

No dice on 10.5.5

 

Trying 10.5.7 now...

 

Getting ridiculous....

 

OK Installing iDeneb v3 10.5.7 now, I would recommend you guys do the same - It seems to run much smoother and more responsive than SL.

 

I've read around here and elsewhere that a 10.5.7 install is fully functional. I'm hoping to get it to that myself....

Awesome, please let us know if you can install it succesfully. About the ethernet port, yeah, i know it is under the flap but let just say that my netbook had a little accident so... no ethernet port for me, lol

I'm up and running with iDeneb v3 10.5.7. I'm trying to figure out what to do next - USB doesn't work although ethernet does.

 

I followed this right up until after the ideneb install:

 

http://myhpmini.com/forum/guide-mini-110-i...king-t1719.html

 

As soon as that guide got to these steps:

1. Type “-s” and hit enter

2. Wait for the text skim by until it stops. Then type “/sbin/fsck –fy” and press enter

3. Once it says “File System was modified” type “/sbin/mount -uw /” with spaces

 

.. it lost me and I just pulled the USB drives and started it up.

 

I can't seem to find anything that indicates just what I do next now that I have 10.5.7 up and running. I'm having restart issues, the USB ports appear to not be functioning, and I haven't gotten to try the webcam, nevermind the wifi.

 

I just downloaded OSXTools and I'm going to try playing around with that for a while. I'll let you know how it goes.

 

Cheers

Hi,

I have an HP mini 110-3102sl that seem to have almost the same hardware of yours (mine have an atom n455) an I have wrote a tutorial, in english and in italian, for install Snow Leopard 10.6.6 on that netbook.

Almost all works fine except for the internal broadcom 4313 wifi that I've substituted with a mini mini mini usb.

If you want to try my method, here is the english version and here the italian version of my tutorial.

Hope this help.

I appreciate you taking the time to post this. I did come across your site while searching for a method however what prevented me was that you need to start on a machine running Snow Leopard, which I do not have. I have units running 10.10 Ubuntu, 10.4, and XP :(

 

Thanks anyway.

 

I've ended up setting this on the backburner for the last week or so as I've been engaged in other affairs and haven't had the time to figure it out.

 

I did get as far as a 10.5 install, but when I installed OSXTools and began the process of installing the necessary kexts, well... it was so confusing and I didn't know what to install and what not to... I bricked the install twice with bad kexts I guess...and just had to put it on hold. I imagine i'll try again this week.

Which version did you used? iDeneb v3 ? because i've searched for that version and i don't find it... maybe you mean version 1.5? it's the one with OSX 10.5.7.

    • For F6 Bios, which DSDT is the one i should use? I´m a little confused in the Mass of DSDT here ;-).   Great Thread by the Way.   Another Question: I have 2 960Pro inside my Rig (one with OS X, one with Windows 10). When i try to mount my EFI on OS X NVMe the system freezes... :-(   DWhen i unplug the Windows NVMe everything is fine an it mounts the EFI.   Anybody an idea?   Tried the upper Port on the Board (OS X) & the middle / lower Port, in the Middle it mounts the EFI in the lower it freezes.   But i need the middle Port for an SATA M.2 SSD :-D... Even when i plug the Windows NVMe into an PCIe Adapter Card it freezes at the point i mount the EFI.   I´m mounting with Clover Configurator.     Thank You guys.
    •   Just add "ngfxsubmit=0" to config.plist to disable the fix within nvidiafixup
    • @MegaCookie   ok, I have no solution for that Trial 7 good for the release?
      Is this codec good enough for you?
    • @onejay09  - thanks again for your help and advice.  I tried various combinations of Info.plist mods (Adding a new Machine entry with my Board ID and GFX0, adding GFX0 to the MacBookPro6,1 Machine entry and adding a Vendor/Device entry to the Board ID and MacBookPro6,1 Machine entries. I thought these might make a difference, but after comparing GPU temps and frequencies to those reported in Windows 7, I'm not seeing any difference.  It appears as though AGPM is natively detecting and handling power management of the NVidia Quadro NVS 140m without any Info.plist mods.   Thanks again.
