    Default Need Help for Installation on Hercules EC-900

    Howdy Folks,

    i bought this netbook some days ago. The Hercules-provided specs say:

    Intel Atom N270 1.60GHz
    512MB DDR2 (max 2 GB expandable)
    60GB HDD 1.8"
    Intel GMA950 (IGP) shared memory
    3x USB 2.0/LAN/WLAN 802.11bgn
    3in1 Card Reader (SD/SDHC/MMC)
    Webcam (1.3 Megapixel)
    8.9" WSVGA TFT (1024x600)

    With the pre-installed Linux, I was able to get some more Info (slightly abbreviated):

    Host bridge: Intel 945GME
    VGA compatible controller: Intel 945 GME
    Audio device: Intel 82801G (ICH7)
    PCI bridge (2 pcs): Intel 82801G (ICH7)
    USB controller (4 pcs): Intel 82801G (ICH7) UHCI
    USB controller: Intel 82801G (ICH7) USB2 EHCI
    PCI bridge: Intel 82801 Mobile (ICH7-M)
    ISA bridge: Intel 82801GBM (ICH7)
    IDE interface: Intel 82801G (ICH7)
    SMBUS: Intel 82801G (ICH7)
    Ethernet controller: Realtek RTL8101E/8102E
    WLAN: RaLink RT2860

    For installation issues, I lend an external USB-DVD Drive.

    What happens when I boot from DVD? (Always with the -v option)

    With iDeneb 10.5.8 Lite:

    Last lines displayed:

    Waiting for boot volume with UUID...
    Waiting on <dict ID="0"...
    AppleIntelPIIXPATA: Secondary PCI IDE channel is disabled
    AppleIntelPIIXPATA: 80-conductor cable not detected on primary channel

    Nothing more happens, Netbook can only switched off/on.

    Some behaviour with iDeneb 10.5.6.

    With iAtkos v7, the netbook just reboots (to fast to read something).

    Would be nice, if someone could bring me on the right path

    Or is it generally impossible to use this netbook with OSX?

    Thanks a lot.

    Greetings
    OSX-Netbook

    Aw, try typing cpus=1 -v -x and report back, check guides for netbooks like MSI Wind and HP Mini

    Hi icchansan,

    thx for the quick reply.

    I tried the switches you mentioned, the result is, that the last two lines (the AppleIntelPIIXPATA-ones) disappeared. Last line is now the one with

    Waiting on <dict ID="0"...

    I ' ll check the guides you posted in the meantime.

    Any further help is strictly welcome

    Thx

    Edit: The guides I have found start after a successful DVD boot...I 'm not getting so far

    Waiting for boot volume with UUID...
    Waiting on <dict ID="0"...

    Any ideas?

    Ok, tested the external DVD Drive with my main PC (running ideneb).
    No problems...

    Found out, that the displayed lines below are the last before the detection of the HDD-controllers.

    Seems that HDD-controller could not be found and for that, the installation is stalling

    I think, it doesn't matter for the recognition whether the HDD is formatted for Linux, NTFS, HFS or anything...

    Can anyone help me out of this?

    Thx

    Tried an older ideneb 1.3 and had no luck, too

    So I'm giving up for now...Tested 3 different distros with the same error...no more ideas here.

    If anyone has ideas to solve my problems, I'm back in the game.
