    Default Leopard on a Toshiba nb100?

    Hi!

    I searched the topic and I didn't find any interesting result.

    My question is simple: is it possible to install OS X Leopard on a Toshiba nb100?

    1.6GHz Intel Atom, 1GB of DDR 2 memory, 120GB hard drive, 802.11b/g Wi-Fi, 10/100Mb/s Ethernet


    Thank you !

    Looks great, did you check the HCL? try with one of those ISOs for minis, like the MSI Wind, or try iPC or Ideneb ;P good luck

    Anyone successfully installed osx on NB100 netbook?
    Is there all working (Wifi, sound proper resolution) or there are still problems?

    Talking

    10.5.7 running nicely on my NB100 here.

    I used iDeneb 10.5.6 and updated with software-update;
    Here's what works and what doesn't.

    Out of the box:
    Card reader / basic trackpad functionality all work with apple drivers.

    With kext / driver install:
    Ethernet driver downloaded from realtek (they provide osx drivers even for mini-pci cards ;-)
    Graphics working nicely in native resolution (1024x600) - kexts floating around with the correct device ID, so not difficult to fix.
    Audio works nicely with either VoodooHDA or AppleAzalia audio - although I've not played with the front ports or anything yet.

    Not working / had to change:
    I had to change the atheros wireless card for an osx compatible one off ebay but that was only 10. You can get the atheros card to work but it's a pain in the @$% to get working - very simple to swap the card - I can give instructions if you want.

    Not working:
    Sleep - unfortunately. Anyone else had more luck with this?
    I can get it to sleep, but always get a kernel panic on wake ;-(

    Anyone else tried with this - it's a nice, solid little netbook ;-)

    Hello stuartm

    > 10.5.7 running nicely on my NB100 here.
    > I used iDeneb 10.5.6 and updated with software-update;

    I have an nb100. I try installation booting from external DVD with iDeneb 10.5.6 but the boot not start. Read source dvd for 5-6 sec, then write the char "E" on the display and stop all the activity.

    have you used a different step for the installation?

    Thanks

    Default external boot DVD devices will likely fail

    The external boot provision using USB DVD drive - I presume - will likely fail. UNIX cannot load it as a driver with it in use - AND it may not by supported as a DVD drive - only CD-ROM drives are all supported and you cannot boot from that either usually externally

    You do not say what your machine is or how you are doing it.

    See - "Read first Before Posting" - http://www.hackint0sh.org/forum/f181/73003.htm

    Read this all the way through - but . . . you need to Google for your answers and do some research instead of relying on and expecting a spoon fed answer. Every machine is different. Visit the link at the bottom of this post.

    Here is a link to generically what is largely supported in IPC 10.5.6 iPC OSx86 10.5.6 Final PPF5 Complete driver list. | OSX86

    netkas.org does support on some of the newer more esoteric NVidia GPU's

    If it is not there in the list above or - it is not supported at this time - so do not cry you want it to be. do not expect someone here to spoon feed you a fix for free. This is a standard paste I use prefaced with a preamble to the question usually.

    After a successful install, and it does not boot all they way through then f8 at boot to the Darwin prompt, and then . . .

    You need to boot with -s. If it loads that to a command line, you've got likely kext problems. Then try -x -v so you can see where it stops, slows, issues errors or hangs. If you get in that way to a desktop you've got probably video kext problems. These can be LOTS of different problems depending on whose distribution you installed and how old it is. Get the newest one - right now which is 10.5.6. IPC has some issues with laptop keyboards not working after install - IDeneb seems to go better.

    Look for what loads and what does not load

    NO ONE can help you right now. You do not say what is wrong, you do not say what you did that does not work and you offer no clues as to your level of expertise as to EXACTLY where you are stumped. You just scream "please help me". Posting that you think you got it working without understanding what you did does not help either. You might now really have it working as it should be.

    If you go to a Medical Doctor and just scream "please help me" and will give no symptoms or clues as to what is going on - even a Doctor cannot help you but begin guessing - and guess what - they get paid to do so - no one here is being paid by you, and still the doctor could end up killing you rather than saving you because you did not tell a critic piece of information - like a severe allergy or something like that which could kill you in his efforts to help you. Computers - especially the OS's of computers are NO DIFFERENT.

    You do not say what is going on. No one is a mind reader here and were not sitting in front of your machine.

    Usually a Kext is likely probably not loading or blocking something - or the kernel panics. That means dies the horrible crash like a aircraft pilot would it the pilot panic'ed in an emergency situation and did not know what to do.

    The kexts are vendor and device ID specific - so if the kext does not have the right vendor and model ID referenced in the kext file - it will fail - or pass up the device anyway. The kexts ARE the drivers - and sometimes you only need to change or add the vendor and device ID.

    You have to figure this out yourself - it is YOUR machine. They are all different as to what is in the unit from the manufacturer, and even if using common device components - the vendor and device ID may be different that what the kext might have in it.

    If you have Windows still on the same machine - and it is working - you can do kext editing from inside windows by installing some helper tools to look into the HPS drive. Use Windows Text Editor - Editpad Lite (only one that will work) and Ext2Fsd 0.46 - An open source Ext2 File System Driver for Windows - Softpedia and Catacombae - HFSExplorer (HFS Explorer) to see and get at the Mac files in Windows; OR you can BUY Macdrive. If you are having dual boot problems try installing EasyBCD from inside Windows to boot between the two. Its free.

    This above will only work if you have been smart enough to do a dual boot machine where Windows is on another partition or permanent drive in the same computer. If Windows will not boot use a Vista repair disk or the XP disk to repair the boot sector - then install EasyBCD through Windows and it will see the MAC partition to let you set it up on the boot manager. Google how to get one if you do not have them.

    You can see the vendor and device ID in Windows, and the kext will have a name and you can find the vendor and device ID in the text of the kext info.plist. You can edit this from the Windows side with the editor above - and use no other - they will not work.

    After you get in through safe mode, you can run "diskutils repairpermissions /" (without the quotes) and to fix the changes you made from the Windows side.

    You come in single user with the -s command at the prompt. Do what it says to mount the
    volume and then

    You do a "sudo -s" first (no quotes)
    cd /System/Library
    chmod -R 755 Extensions /
    touch Extensions /
    diskutil repairpermissions /

    If you had trouble with the registration looping or other things then . . . after that above of mounting the volume make a password for root by typing

    passwd root

    Then when done type

    touch /var/db/.AppleSetupDone

    reboot

    There are other ways to do this and much more from the -s boot option (single user mode) but it is really getting UNIX specific as to the commands, and if you are there and know nothing anyway - you should probably pay someone, buy a real MAC or just give up - OR get ready for a real extensive learning curve and research on the web.

    You need to do some research on how the MAC OS works. Match your kext families with the missing parts of the OS not loading - change the vendor and device ID's and one at a time - you'll get them working and the boot errors will go away.

    If you have/had IPC 10.5.6 ppf4 or ppf5 you would likely have most of the kexts - but they might not have the right vendor ID and device ID for the unit you are trying to install on.

    It works for both CPUs Intel or AMD. IDeneb 10.5.6. might go more successfully.

    Once installed, you need to boot in safe mode from the Darwin prompt with the -x option. Use -v also so you can see what it is loading and if it does stop in safe mode and where. Then you can try -v -f on another boot to see if it will make it all the way

    The MacOS is at it's core - UNIX - you cannot just lump a question in something and throw it here that is non-descriptive as to tell anyone not at your PC what is TRULY going on, even though I am a UNIX engineer.

    No one can help you if they cannot tell what is really going on - and if you are not ready to learn some UNIX - give up now.

    If you install the right kexts (Kernel EXTensionS) with the right vendor id's applicable the system will load them as it finds the hardware during the boot process. Remember the kext might be there - but have the wrong vendor and device ID - so it will get passed up.

    Read the clues of the boot process yourself and do some research as to what they mean and then if you have a specific question you cannot find on the Internet or in the forums - that someone can identify - post that.

    Of course you can always BUY a real MAC, and then holler "please help me" all you want to Apple Computer Support, and at some point they will tell you the same thing.

    If you install the right kexts (Kernel EXTensionS) with the right vendor id's applicable the system will load them as it finds the hardware during the boot process.

    Read the clues of the boot process yourself and do some research as to what they mean and then if you have a specific question you cannot find on the Internet or in the forums - that someone can identify - post that.

    Macberna:

    I formatted an external USB drive to HFS and wrote the .iso image to the external drive, then used the chameleon installer to put the boot manager on it and make it bootable. Then, just set the NB100 to boot from 'USB memory'

    Bobburns:

    Thank you for your verbose reply! My question was rather simpler than you seem to think: Has anyone got it working?

    There are a few netbooks that just don't support sleep / wake - so I wondered whether anyone had got it working - that's all!

    Actually, I have a Macbook Pro and an ibookG4 - the netbook is a bit of fun, and a backup for iphoto and itunes ;-) PLUS a really good learning experience to understand OSX better.
