Just an update on the thread for those of you who use 1005ha for SL Hackintosh:
Quick note about 10.6.2 update:
I tried the two methods currently available:
- patched 10.6.2 mach_kernelviewtopic.php?f=15&t=3569&start=10#p24937
- netbookInstaller 0.8.3 (RC 4) with vanilla 10.6.2http://www.meklort.com/?p=111
Both were successful, but bluetooth was lost. Nothing is recognized in System Profiler.
I will update when I find out more.
- I have been using 1005ha (N280 Atom) Hackintosh and have found no problems with sleep whatsoever, even without the backlight after sleep fix. So, those of you intending to install 10.6 on Hackintosh, you needn't worry about Step (F) on iKeny's Guide.
- Many of you have problems with updating from 10.6.1 to 10.6.2 Snow Leopard. Well, good news is that the new NBI 0.8.3 RC5 and Final Release will now patch the 10.6.2 kernel automatically
, with a 99% Mac-Like Bootloader. Contrary to what iKeny have posted before, Bluetooth works after NBI 0.8.3 patching on a 1005ha-h.
(iKeny's guide only covers NBI RC4 - a buggy release of NBI)
- However, the patching is not without its drawbacks. For starters, the machine would need to be forced to shutdown
when SL powers-off if you use an older BIOS version. With a new updated BIOS
as at Jan 2010 from ASUS, the problem persists periodically only. So update your BIOS from Windows before you attempt to install SL with NBI 0.8.3.(I found that when SL powers down, if you give the power button on the netbook a press when it shows the light blue shtdown screen, the system will power down (new BIOS only).For those of you who already have an exisitng 10.6.1 install:
- Check out osx.mechdrew.com for a guide about backing-up and restoring your Hackintosh install using OSX Disk Utility or Time Machine.
- Once you have backed-up your Netbook, install the new bootloader on Hackintosh with NBI 0.8.3 (RC5 or above)
- Restart and update system to 10.6.2, then boot into OSX installer (using NBI Bootmaker 0.8.3)
- Install Bootloader again using NBI 0.8.3 from installer/ Make sure you check the bootloader and "General Extensions" - don't check "generate system specificdsdt.aml", otherwise it will freeze up.
- Restart and install kexts listed in iKeny's guide - Don't worry if your system doesn't power-off ofter shutdown. As you install the kexts, you will find the problem will disappear or at least only occur periodically if you have installed the new BIOS from ASUS.
