Blank Grey Screen - Acer Aspire One AOA150 (ZG5)

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts


I have successfully installed Leohazard's 10.6.2 Snow Leopard on my netbook using an external DVD drive. When I boot into verbose mode from Chameleon, it loads without any problem. Then there's the problem. I get the sound of the OS X Setup Intro, but while this is playing there is just a blank grey screen.


I was wondering if anyone could help me solve this. I have no idea how to fix this without being able to get into the OS without an interface, only Single User Mode works and I have no idea what I need and what to type to get this to work.


I've tried various installations and have been troubleshooting this for days and nothing seems to be doing the trick.


I hope you can help me!

Boot with GraphicsEnabler=No.


If that doesn't work, try single user mode, and run:


mount -uw /


mkdir /bad_kexts


mv ATI* /bad_kexts


mv NVDA* /bad_kexts


mv AppleIntelHD* /bad_kexts


then reboot.


Note that once you do get it working, you'll need these kexts for a decent resolution:




Download the .zip file, then install with http://www.osx86.net...do=file&id=1331


Good luck!
