Need Help for Installation on Hercules EC-900
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.
