    Default [Guide] Get Leopard Working on Asus U3S, Complete install guide

    In this topic you can see how to get OSX working on the Asus U3S.



    1. Specs

    CPU: Intel Core2Duo - working (requires patched bios)
    Memory: 1,5 Gb - working
    Graphics (power saving): Intel X3100 - working (requires paulicat natit)
    Graphics (speed): nVidia G8400M - working
    Hard Drive: 160Gb - working
    DVD Drive: DVD RW, CD RW - working
    Display: 13.3" (1280x800) - working
    Network (ethernet): Realtek 8111/8168B - working
    Network (wifi): Intel 4965 a/b/g/n - not working, in progress
    Sound: Intel 82801H - working, requires azalia driver
    Webcam: 1.3 Mega Pixel - not working

    2. What you'll need

    - iAtkos v1.0r2
    - Zephyroth rev2
    - Kalyway 10.5.2 Combo updater
    - Apple Leopard graphics update
    - Modded BIOS ( here )
    - Vanilla kernel 9.2.0
    - Airport & Time Machine Update
    - Bluetooth kexts ( here )
    - Powermanagement.bundle

    3. Flashing the BIOS

    To make OSX work on this laptop, you'll need to flash your BIOS. This can be done in windows vista, or with a USB stick.
    We'll flash is using a USB stick, since some of you might not have vista.
    So, format the USB stick to FAT format and copy over the BIOS file ( don't forget to extract it first!).
    Then boot your laptop, hold F4 and you'll get into Asus Easy Flash Utility.
    Use arrows to select your BIOS file, press enter to select it.
    Make sure you have enough battery left, and don't power off the laptop until flashing the BIOS is complete.

    4. Configure the BIOS to boot from DVD

    Get into the BIOS by pressing F2 at boot

    Boot>Boot Device Priority
    1. CD/DVD
    2. Hard Drive

    5. Install iAtkos

    Just burn the image to a dvd using your favorite ISO burning tool, burn it at a lower speed to be sure the image is burnt correctly.
    Boot the laptop with the dvd, wait till installer shows up.

    Go to Utilities > Disk Utility and partition your disk the way you want to, make sure MBR ( Master Boot Record ) is selected in options, but it is by default.
    Close Disk Utility, and the installer will show up.

    Select:

    - Patches > Remove AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement driver and thermal kexts

    Don't select a bootloader, it won't work. You need the Zephyroth rev2 for the MBR. ( unless there's a better way? )

    6. Install a Bootloader

    As you might have noticed, your laptop now has a working OSX install but it can't boot into it without the install dvd inserted.
    To fix this, you boot the Zephyroth rev2 disc.

    In installer, select Bootloader -> Single Boot -> MBR ( efi v8 ) and UNCHECK all other options, don't install anything else!

    7. Update to 10.5.2

    Use Kalyway Combo Updater 10.5.2, after installing it will reboot a few times and stay in bootscreen for a long time, don't panic.

    8. Install graphics update

    Download the Leopard Graphics Update 1.0 from apple.com
    http://www.apple.com/support/downloa...supdate10.html
    Install it and reboot, this will take a while but works perfectly.

    9. Go Vanilla

    Install vanilla kernel ( not the patched one ), then simply reboot and you're in 9.2.0.

    10. Airport & Time Machine Update

    To get the 9.2.2 kernel, install the Airport and Time Machine Update from apple.com
    http://www.apple.com/support/downloa...pdatesv10.html


    11. Bluetooth and Battery fixes

    After updating, install the battery and bluetooth drivers.
    Download kexthelper and install the kexts.

    Install powermanagement.bundle by copying it to /System/Library/SystemConfiguration/ directory.
    Then reboot, and battery should be working again.

    11. Future

    Webcam isn't working yet, no news about that.
    Wifi driver isn't ready yet, but there's hope. ( watch the iwidarwin project )
