    Default Installing OSX (Ideneb 1.3) on an asus eee 1005HA

    Out of curiousity, why would 1.3 (10.5.5) work where 1.4 (10.5.6) wouldn't? And which kexts/fixes in the OS did you install?
    Hi,

    I Have sent various replies and I can see how they would be confusing.

    First, I aint no guru. Just some schmuck that wants mac OSX on a mini (and XP and "7"). I don't like the Mac screens and I don't like getting ripped off for their inferior computers just to get their OS. So I bought the OS (so they get paid for their software -it only seems fair) and what I think to be the best mini out there (the HE is pretty nice as well, much better screen for outside but the HA's screen is incredible in its own way).

    Second, I am used to winning when it comes to my computers. That doesnt mean it comes easy but I usually win or I throw the damm thing away. I am not throwing this one away!

    That being said.

    Here (How-to: Install OS X on Asus Eee PC 1000HE Netbook | Netbooks & Small Form Factor Computers | Small Computing) is the basis for how I installed Ideneb 1.3 on my 1005HA (this installation is for the 1000HE and works on the HE with a few preliminary setups). So, after you do the following (or what is below) go to that link and follow that procedure that you would have done for the HE and it will at least get you to 10.5.6 (I have not upgraded to .7 YET). I cannot get the ethernet to work or the wireless but I have finally gotten the screen brightness to work (I think it worked once I updated to 10.5.6).

    I believe that the reason 1.4 does not work is because of the bios settings. It won't work on the Asus 1000HE either.

    Now, 1.3 won't work on the HA if you take the unit directly out of the box(but it will for the HE) and install it on the second visible partition (don't ask me why, I am not a guru and do not understand those things - but if someone can explain why so that I get a better understanding of computers I do not mind the schooling).

    To install you have two choices: 1. reformat the drive completely and then install 1.3 (during the installation you would go to disk utility and modify the harddrive as needed for the install). My understanding is the 1.3 changes the bios somehow so that it will work but it can't do what it needs to if you try to install it on the HA out of the box. This method likely won't allow you to install future operating systems (but I have really don't know).

    1. Delete the other three partitions. There are 4 total out of the box, the operating system one, the second one (blank), the third (recovery software that you can restore with the CD easily if you care to) and the fourth that has the softare (I think) that enables system recovery without the DVD.

    Then create a new second partition that is FAT32 (others may work - you can try if you like - can't hurt).

    Once you have done that go the link above and you will be golden. If you chose to keep XP when the system reboots you will get a screen that tells you to hit any key for choices. Hit a key and pick which partition you want to boot to. There is a cameleon loader I think that can make that screen more attractive and I am sure there are other ways to do it. I installed bootmagic 8.0 and use it (I am hoping I will be able to use it to tri-boot with "7" as well.

    No system is perfect and it has taken me a lot of trial and error to get this to work. I made it work (and I do not know anything about Mac) and I think with the above you can too.

    Here are a few things that I would not figure out. The ethernet, the whole audio chud and shortcut key thing (but audio works with the icon at the top and all) and I do not know if the power management is fully working or not but battery life is real good.

    Good luck, I don't think you really need it. If I can do it I think anyone familiar with partitioning and installing operating systems and following directions can!

    If anyone figures out the wireless I would love to know.

    Best of luck.

    Hi, the link did not go through in the earlier post.

    Here is the link How-to: Install OS X on Asus Eee PC 1000HE Netbook | Netbooks & Small Form Factor Computers | Small Computing

    The above installation instructions tells you everything (or mostly) I did.

    Default Tri boot XP, 7 and OSX

    I am able to triple boot my 1005HA with XP, OSX and Windows 7.

    It is complicated (for me) and time consuming. I left XP and made that partition smaller (40GB) I then deleted the other 3 and split them fairly equally and put OSX on the 4the partition and made it a Fat32 (the middle partitions were made into ntsf).

    Once you have OSX you can install 7 on the 2nd partition. Before rebooting you have to install easyBCD 1.7.2 and get it working as your boot loader. Then you will be able to boot to 7 and OSX but I was not able to boot to XP. You then have to re-install the ntldr file (I had to learn some DOS for that one) that is corrupt due to the 7 install (the bastards), I believe. You then have to set your active partition to XP and then you install Bootmagic 8.0 and set it to boot to XP, 7 and Mac (in that order).

    NOTE: The third partition was split into 2 logical ones FAT for the Bootmagic install and the remaining Fat32 which becomes the shared partition.

    When you boot you will have bootmagic show up with your boot options. This is the one you use. Just use the arrow keys to go to the one you want. If you try to boot to the other partitions through the OSX bootloader or the EasyBCD one you run the risk of messing things up a little, costing you down time. I have played with booting different ways and it has not screwed things up yet. But since the bootmagic works so well it seems logical to leave well enough alone. XP and 7 won't boot through OSX's installer any more and XP won't boot through OSX's or EasyBCD.

    Itís not as simple as above but those of you that know computers fairly well should be able to fill in the blanks. I am just not good enough to tell somebody how to do it since I mostly wing it and make sure my computer knows that if it does not comply I will throw it off my car on the freeway!

    Have fun tri-booting if ya dare.

    John

    Ive written a guide that explains everything about 1005HA OSX install, its almost perfect, you get this working:
    # CPU with hyperthreading
    # Sleep
    # Trackpad with two-finger scroll, two finger tap and many more features
    # Sound (internal speakers and phones)
    # Graphics with full QE/CI and dual-monitor with VGA
    # Screen brightness buttons
    # Camera (fully working with Photo Booth)
    # Batterymeter with time remaining and percentage
    # Wifi (with Dell 1510 or other halfsize PCI cards)

    I've been working on a dual boot project for just over a month now, I'm running win7 as primary os with OS X 10.5.6 as secondary.

    I've literally tried every possible combination of install disk and boot loader possible. Running the retail install disk works fine until rebooting the system...

    I have an eee pc 1005HAB + 2GB upgraded RAM. I partitioned my hard drive (240GB) giving 140GB to windows and 70GB to mac (leaving the other 30GB to various unrelated things.)

    I successfully installed OS X 10.5.6 onto the 70GB partition. And i have narrowed the cause of the reboot failure to the ACPI.kext and APIC.kext within the mac software. I also know that simply replacing those with fixed kext files fixes this error and therefor making the system operational. my only problem is figuring out just HOW I am suppose to do that... I have the corrected kext files, but the only way i can get into my Mac partition to even try and replace them would be if i could actually get it to boot... which i can't... i have of course tried doing it from the install disk, i just haven't been able to figure it out...

    If anyone could help me out with this, it would be greatly appreciated.

    basically all i need is an explanation of how to take the corrected kext files and replace the ones on my Mac system... Please and thank you. (:
