Yes. Install with 10.4.8 and you will not have many problems. I installed on a v5101us, which should have similar hardware to yours.


1. Select the AMD kext.

2. You can add your devid to a kext to get wireless!

3. Download and install PCGenRTL8139Etherne2t-1.2.0.zip to get wired.

4. Download and install Callisto_latest_003b.zip and add your devid to get 1280x800 resolution.

5. Open and save /usr/standalone/i386/BootHelp.txt to fix line endings (not really needed unless

you want to see the boot menu properly)
