    Default Acer Aspire One Install

    Hello all, I am not in your league when it comes to any of this hacking stuff. I have an Aspire one running XP and I am excited about the prospect of having it run OSX. I have some questions about stability because since I am not experienced in any of this stuff I am probably not going to be able to tweak it on the fly. Has anyone been able to create an installation that is stable? I am reluctant to try switching the OS if it has to be constantly monitored. At this point I am just curious. If this question has been raised before I appologize.

    Thanks,

    I checked out the link. It seems to me that there isn't a method to fully install OSX without some missing items. Has anyone got this completely figured out?

    1. Insert the Kalyway 10.5.2 disk into your external DVD drive, and plug it into your AA1
    2. Start your AA1, and press F12 when prompted to choose a boot device, select your DVD drive
    3. When prompted to hit a key to boot from CD/DVD, hit a key.... you'll see a ton of text scroll up the screen - just sit tight
    4. You'll next be presented with your language select screen. I imagine you want English, so just hit enter! It'll then sit doing 'Preparing Installation' for a while.
    5. When you get the 'Welcome' screen, don't hit continue straight away! Move your point to the 'Utilities' menu, and select 'Disk Utility'.
    6. When the Disk Utility application has loaded, click your main drive in the left hand pane (probably the very top entryis your HDD manufacturer's name')
    7. Click 'Partition' on the right hand pane.
    8. Under 'Volume Scheme', click '1 partition'. ( this varies on your desire on how many partition you want )
    QUOTE
    If you already have a prepared partition you can Goto > Disk Utility > choose selected partion > choose erase > use MAC OS extended Journaled

    9. Give your disk a nice name.
    10. Click 'Apply'
    11. Wait for it to do it's thing, then select 'Quit Disk Utility' from the 'Disk Utility' menu.
    12. You'll now be taken back to the installer welcome page. Click 'Continue'.
    13. Click 'Agree' when the legalese blurb pops up.
    14. Choose a destination drive - obviously the one you just partitioned! Click 'Continue'.
    15. Click 'Customize'.
    16. Completely uncheck 'Language Translations'.
    17. Expand 'Kernels' and select ONLY 'kernel_9.2speedstep'
    18. Expand 'Graphics_Drivers', expand 'Intel_GMA' and select ONLY 'GMA950'
    19. Completely uncheck 'Audio_Drivers'.
    20. Expand 'Networks_Drivers'. and select ONLY 'RTL1000'.
    21. Completely uncheck 'Mobo_Chipsets'.
    22. Completely uncheck 'Thirds_Applications'. ( I choose some applications which I have used before but if you are a 1st time Mac user need you need uncheck this area )
    23. completely uncheck 'Patches'.
    24. Click 'Done'
    25. Click 'Install' and go and make yourself a cup of tea! ( nice one Paul :lol!: )
    26. :!: The install will now take place, if you want to speed it up, you can 'Skip' the installation DVD check.
    28. When the 'Install Succeeded' screen appears, eject the install DVD and hit 'Restart'.
    29. OS will now start up for the first time, and take you through the setup wizard.
    What's wrong with that ?

    WiFi won't work, the card needs to be swapped.
    The card readers won't work because they're PCI based and not USB, for some odd reason.
    I've also heard that the microphone won't work, and auto-switching when headphones are plugged in is broken.

    Thats what I mean. There are a handful of items that don't transfer over to OSX. I am not looking forward to spending hours trying to make this work and having to settle for my new toy not running at 100%.

    Then you'll have to write the drivers yourself, because they don't exist yet.
