    Question What to do after OSX installation? How to install kexts? (HP Mini 5102)

    Hi, I have an HP Mini 5102 and I installed OSX Snow Leopard (10.6) on it as per this guide: Dell Mini 10v Installation via USB and Mac | Guides | OS X | mechdrew. I don't think anything exists on the internet as far as OSX86 on this particular Mini….

    Everything looks good… but I can't help feeling like I'm only half-way through the installation...
    1. The computer doesn't boot unless the USB flash drive I installed from is plugged in. I can select the internal HD from the Chameleon menu and that works fine. I changed all the BIOS settings back in order to boot from the internal HD, but I still get some kind of kernel error and it goes into a boot loop Do I need to make some kind of EFI partition?

    2. USB drive support is a spotty. Even when I boot from a USB drive it doesn't mount on the desktop once it starts up. If I boot up in safe mode, occasionally devices will work.

    3. Wifi isn't working… the 5102 has a Broadcom 4322g. I read a post on here by someone who has a mini 2140 (which has the same wifi card as the 5102, I think) and they attached a kext which is supposed to be installed into my /Extra/Extensions/ folder. I'm confused as to how it works, though. Do I just put it in /Extra/Extensions/ on my installation disk and reboot? Seems too simple….

    4. A bunch of other things…

    I KNOW I'm a noob to the whole hackintosh thing, but this seems like a helpful place and I was hoping someone might be able to help me out. If anyone knows anything about this I would be so so so grateful.

    I have been trying to turn my HP Mini 5102 into a Mac as well with no luck. I followed the guide you suggest but it won't boot from the USB for me

    Did you end up getting your mini to boot without the USB? Did you get the WiFi working?
