    Default iATKOS 2.0 on Lenovo 3000 G530 -- Wireless problems

    Hey guys, I'm new to OSX86. I had a Mac for awhile that was triple-booting, but this is the first time I put mac on a PC (successfully, I tried on an old desktop, got SATA errors).

    Anyway, I installed leopard on my Lenovo 3000 G530 with an iATKOS 2.0 disk. Everything seems to be working (that I've tested) except for wireless. I have an atheros chipset, and google tells me something about a kext file, I'm not really sure what's up, I only have a cursory knowledge of OS X. I'm a Linux kid.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    --Matt

    Default The Mac is Linux/UNIX

    You need to know what core product the wireless is based on and then find the kext for it.

    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. You should not use the old versions as a new install - you will just get old issues to re-invent the wheel to try to fix. That sounds like it is your problem here.

    Also you have a boot issue. If you are doing dual boot with Windows you need a boot manager like EasyBCD. Repair the windows boot with eh windows CD and install EasyBCD through Windows and it will then let you boot the MAC OS. if you screwed up the install by wrong partitioning - I will not help you.

    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.

    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.

    I'm triple booting OS X, Windows 7, and Ubuntu, using the grub boot loader. I don't think I have a boot problem.

    I don't understand why I need to try boot into safe mode then see if it can get it to boot all the way. It already boots fine, it just doesn't see my wireless card.

    How would I go about finding my vendor or device ID? The only information I can find on the wireless is that it's an atheros chipset. All the system information commands I've run don't have anything very detailed.

    Under Ubuntu:
    lspci -vv

    And find your Atheros chip model. Better to past it here with CODE.

    Okay. I see Broadcom there, but I don't think that can be my wireless adapter. I'm confused.

    Code:

    Yeah, that's it:
    Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g, 0x04b5. But i can't see Model ID.
    Are you sure you have Atheros adapter?

    For Broadcoms there is a thread on InsanelyMac:
    Broadcom bcm43xx wireless driver [beta] - InsanelyMac Forum

    A lot of Atheros wi-fi adapters detects out-of-box as "Apple AirPort Extreme" because Apple uses them in Macs.

    Thanks. It's working. That's great that I have wireless under Mac... but that sucks that TigerDirect misrepresented my laptop. I got an atheros chipset for a reason. Damn.

    Oh well. Now that that's working, any hints on how I can get a higher display resolution or sound/microphone working?
