    Yes, that's doable. But it also modifies a few of Apple's original extensions, e.g. those for the graphics, in the System/Library/Extensions folder, and I do not like that. It also appears to modify other files in the system without explaining in detail which they are, and how to undo those. After all, that tool was made specifically for Dell minis, not for all netbooks.

    How did you build the dsdt.aml file that you posted on your guide? Did you just use the dsdt Patcher GUI?
    Yes.

    my 1008HA won't power all the way down at shut down or standby (have to force shut down by holding power button).
    I have that problem, too. So you're saying that started only after creating the dsdt.aml? Good to know.

    Finally, do you mind posting the list of kext files in your Extra folder on your guide?
    It's precisely the 5 that I mention in my guide.

    alemerson,

    The former. The boot loader can not read&mount disk image files, only real HFS+ partitions.

    I just tried to clarify this in the guide by adding to step 1: "and make sure you can boot from it using your Mac".

    This will then also create the systemconfiguration folder.

    for some reason chameleon no longer boots to the graphical side, and i can't switch between them with the tab button.
    That's controlled by the settings in the com.apple.Boot.plist file in the root or in the Extra folder. Maybe restore a fresh one.

    -i understand there are two partitions on my hdd, but what are the other two drives?
    Supposedly they're used to restore a Windows system and update the BIOS. Ignore them.

    Yes. I now have dsdt removed. It takes 5 minutes to boot, but it will shut down properly, and most importantly sleep and wake properly.

    Yes and no, in my opinion. I have the following kext in my Extra/Mini9Ext folder, but all of these kexts are written for OSX86; i.e., used for generic hackintosh.

    AppleACPIBatteryManager.kext
    AppleACPIPlatform.kext
    AppleACPIPS2Nub.kext
    AppleDecrypt.kext
    AppleIntelGMA950.kext
    AppleIntelIntegratedFramebuffer.kext
    AppleIntelPIIXATA.kext
    ApplePS2Controller.kext
    EHCISleepEnabler.kext
    IO80211Family.kext
    IOGraphicsFamily.kext
    IONDRVSupport.kext
    IONetworkingFamily.kext
    SMBIOSResolver.kext
    VoodooPower.kext

    I am using the same setup for a Lenovo S10 as well, which works nearly 100% as a Mac. The only problem is a hardware issue with sleeping if the bluetooth module is installed; and non-function mic (common for all hackintosh)

    For my 1008HA, my issues are -
    1. dsdt.aml prevents complete power down, or slow boot up without dsdt
    2. when sleeps (quick sleep, which works fine otherwise) the computer still drain quite a bit of current to the point that the region below the power button remains warm, and I lose about 5% of battery per hour of sleeping.
    3. non-functioning mic

    Otherwise, it functions well: CPU stepping is working, fan is working with variable speed, screen dims when ac unplugged, although I get only 3.5 hours battery time after a full charge.

    Yes, I have strange battery drain effects when sleeping as well, sporadically, though:

    When I did put it to sleep last night, it drained its battery in a few hours completely.
    Today I retried this, and this time, it went from 100% to 85% after ~13 hours.
    Can't remember having made any changes to the system between the two tests.
    Weird.

    well i reinstalled the chameleon package, which worked better. now i am at the gray apple screen (not the stock apple one.. the shiny silver one, which i assume means its working)

    but booting normally just hangs on the silver apple

    booting with -x makes it hang in the darwin loader
    booting with -v gives me a white bar at the top with nothing else
    booting with -t hangs on the silver apple

    i would like to take pictures of the entire install to help clarify things in quiteannoyed's tutorial. I know pictures would have explained a lot and im sure it would help people. so once i get the install complete ill get on that

    okay, sorry for the multiple posts a row, but here is the most updated info

    booting with no options, -x, -t, and -t &-x hangs on silver apple for 10+ mins

    booting with -v is a black screen with a white bar across the most of the upper left half, and it hangs there for 10+ mins with no diagnostic info



    any suggestions for next steps? thanks in advance, very appreciative

    Yes, that's a known bug in Chameleon 2.0 RC1. But I had thought that this was fixed in RC2. Which version did you install?

    About your other problems: Well, I had similar troubles, just tried out a lot of things, like using DellEFI, other tools, etc, all by reading numerous web sites, and eventually it worked. However, by then I had no idea any more what was actually making it work - that's why I decided to go the other route with the clean install, which I'm running ever since. If you have a Mac, I suggest you use that path as well, and patch the Installer so that you can install OSX directly onto the Asus disk without having to reformat it as GUID. That's one of the solutions I have tested enough to know it works as described in my guide.

    Question Trackpad with scrolling function - anyone?

    Did anyone manage to get his EeePC trackpad to work in a way that allows you to scroll pages by swiping the trackpad (either on its edge with one finger, or anywhere with two fingers)?

    I've so far only tried VoodooPS2, but that does not function at all for me (crashes, keyboard keeps repeating a key, trackpad is dead).

    (update)
    I got it working. Problem was that I needed to remove not only ApplePS2Controller.kext from the /Extra folder, but also AppleACPIPS2Nub.kext. And the VoodooPS2Controller.kext needs to be in the /System/Library/Extensions folder, not in the /Extra folder (the VoodooPS2 installer will take care of that).
