Hello Everyone


I'm REALLY new to the whole idea of a 'hackintosh', i only found out about the concept about 6 months ago.


I have wanted to try and make a hackintosh ever since and about two weeks ago i got hold of my unlocked school netbook (A Lenovo S10e) and immediatly researched what to do. Yes, i know it's an old machine but this is all a big experiment for me.


So far i have been able to get Snow Leopard 10.6.4 working well Via S10 Snow Leopard Enabler, however i have one problem; the wireless card won't be recognised no matter what i try. The instructions that come with the enabler say that wireless should work "out of the box" but it doesnt, Bluetooth DOES work however.


The Enabler also says that audio, full screen resolution (1024 x 576), sleep, two finger scrolling and wired Ethernet SHOULD work and i can confirm that they do, it's just the wireless thats the problem!


My Machine's Specifications:

- Intel Atom N270 @ 1.6GHz


- 160Gb Fujitsu HDD

- Intel GMA 950

- Broadcom Bluetooth


I think the wireless PCI card is this: Broadcom BCM4312M


I previously have Windows 7 installed on this machine and the wireless worked fine


Thanks in advance for the help anyone can render! :help:

Is the netbook still school property? If so, just please think twice about what you do with it. That said, don't know what this enabler you speak of is, but would need vendor and device ID for the wifi to see if it's workable. You can get info using this System Info, an app to get hardware and kexts info

you have here an exemple to how install OS X Lion DP1 (first beta version of OS X Lion, 32-bits compiled system, can work on your proc Atom N270 ) on this netbook : http://www.insanelym...__+lenovo +s10e


the kexts (drivers) that he use can be used on Snow Leopard too, i believe ! See if there's kext for your wireless !


I heard that the wifi works but not ethernet !


Good luck !



P.S: there's a netbook sub forum moderated by marugby123, maybe he can help you more ! ;)


P.S.2: Netbooks Snow Leopard's compatibility : Go here ! as you can see, your netbook is very good for OS X ! ;)

No, the school has handed ownership to me :)

I used the System Info app you linked and it spat this out at me:


Pro/Wireless 5100 agn (shiloh) network connection

Vendor: Intel Corporation

Dev ID: 4237


Is this what you need? :)

    • ok, I am having a weird glitch with my Primary bios after modding it myself. can I get some help getting a Clean osmosis modded (for High Sierra and beyond) Bios Image?   https://www.gigabyte.com/us/Motherboard/GA-Z87X-UD5-TH-rev-1x#support-dl   the version I have always stuck with was F4, because the F5d.  I use a custom iMac 14,2 configuration that has been stable, the issues I have with stability come from not being able to get Access to the Bios, and prior to my attempt to mod it has been stable with up to High Sierra using clover, and up to Sierra with my very very old Ozmosis 894m F4 rom. I am not opposed to installing Ozmosis on the EFI Partition, But Gigabyte locked the Bios loading .efi Files, there is no shell to Force it to load HFS+ or APFS drivers.   so what I am asking for is assistance ether unlocking a Shell for my Bios, or getting a bios with the APFS, HFS+, and Ozmosis related files in it.   thanks again for everyones assistance.

    •     Install from fresh again. This time without Tony Tools, follow some guide in this topic. Install IntelHD kexts as usual in S/L/E and thats it. Everything works again, except for backlight, I never could have this work, also got heating problem and when boots apple logo dissapears from like 5 seconds and then appear the login window... Any ideas on any of this????
