It's there a fix for FaceTime on an atom build?

I try erasing ethernet card from network and networkInterfaces.plilst restart and all is the same.

I try different chameleons loaders to no avail.

Chimera break my video, recognized as a 3Mb video card.

Writing ethernet string to the org.chameleon.boot.plist break my video and can't boot.

I take Quizz 1. Didn't see a Quizz 2. I understand the need for rules but I'm not a new user. I like to read and learn from other experiences that's the reason I just make a couple of post since 2006. But I think that's what the moderators on all forums ask the users to do, to read before making dumb questions or duplicate posts.

Is your ethernet correctly recognised as en0?


Which bootloader are you using? you need to be using either the latest chameleon (or 1 with the facetime fix) or chimera.


Post your smbios.plist as you need to have certain information in there for icloud and facetime to work, you also need a valid serial number.

I make the first install with iatkosL1 now I make a new install with IatkosL2. I'm not sure of the QE/CI but the HD games are working great. wifi it's working but not with the driver on the installer image I use an Atheros_9285 found somewhere on the forum. HDMI audio: I don't do anything it work oob. I don't know if it still working after all the things I do trying to get the internal audio working but the video it's ok I try to connect the PC later to my tv and I will let you know. I'm using chameleon 2.1 vs r1718

what's the differences between ZBOX-ID41-U and ZBOX-ID41-E


I really don't know and don't find any differences except that the id41-e seems to be sold only on asia and europe. Maybe E stands for



BTW Zotac site state that it support up to 4GB of memory. But truly, on 64-bit you can have up to 8GB. I have 8Gb on lion (recognized and working).
