    Post Leopard on Asus eeePC 1000HGo with 3G working

    Hi folks,

    In my workplace, we only use Apple Macs. So wih my Asus eeePC 1000HGo I didn't want to introduce Windows into a purely Mac-LAN. So I just finished setting up my brand new Asus eeePC 1000HGo (the one with 3G built in).

    It took me a few weeks to figure out all the tweaks and cheats to get everything working, but finally, here I am, posting from my brandnew eeeMAC over the 3G network.
    I set up OSX on a 16GB SDHC, so I can still dualboot with the original WinXP installation the eeePC came with.

    What is not yet working right now:
    - WLAN (Atheros AR5007EG) - is working with the KisMAC cheat (not the Mac way I'd prefer)
    - LAN (Atheros AR8121)
    Everything else, including 3G, is working just like a charm.

    So here is how I did it:
    1.) get a copy of iDeneb 10.5.5 v1.3 (I tried several other distributions, this is the only one that worked for me)
    2.) go to BIOS, turn off onboard LAN
    3.) install OSX, using an external DVD-Drive
    a) boot from DVD
    b) go to "Utilities" -> Disk Utility
    c) Partition the SD-Card as follows:
    - one partition, Mac OS Extended (Journaled), I named it "OSX"
    - go to "Options", select "GUID Partition Table"
    - press "Apply"
    - close Diskmanager and continue Setup
    d) When beeing asked to select a destination, choose "OSX" (the partition you just created on the SDHC), then press "Continue"
    e) Now click "Customize" to modify your Setup-Selection
    - choose the Language Translations you like to have available (I choose German)
    - choose "Additional Fonts"
    - choose "X11"
    - open "Patches" ->"Audio" -> choose AppleAzaliaAudio
    - open "Chipset" -> choose ICHx Fixed
    - open "Fix" -> choose "ACPI-Fix", "Cpus=1-Fix", "FireWire Remove", "PowerManagement", "PowerOff_Fix"
    - open "Video" -> open Intel -> Choose Intel GMA950
    - open "Applications" -> choose all
    click "Done"
    click "Install"
    f) grab a cup of coffee, this will take some time now (you can skip the Disk check, if you like to speed up things a little)
    4.) About 45min later (or 4 cups of coffee and a little snack), the eeeMAC will restart.
    5.) Now hold the "ESC"-Key during the grey Screen and Select "Single Flash Reader" as the boot drive.
    6.) Answer the questions as you like
    7.) the question "How do you connect?" must be answered: "My computer does not connect to the internet" (yet)
    8.) create your Account, take a picture (yes, the camera works right of the box)
    9.) choose your time zone
    10.) Now: Log in to your new eeeMAC - you're done!
    11.) so here comes the tricky part: the post installation updates
    a) Download the "post Installation updates for eeePC" (here are all the files: Post Install updates for eeePC)
    b) open "APPS" -> install "About this Mac"
    c) open Kext Helper B7 and drag alle .kext files from KEXT-Folder to the window.
    enter your password and click "easy install"
    d) as it says: cross your fingers and reboot, so do that!
    After reboot, your screen should now have the correct resolution (1024x600)
    e) lets correct the sound issue:
    open the folder "Sound fix" an copy Spark and Audieee to your Programs
    Install "chud.dmg"
    Install "AzilaAudio.pkg"
    RESTART (keep fingers crossed!)
    Add "Audieee" to your Startup Applications, start Audieee and selct the internal Speakers as the output device.
    12.) Now we should speed up grafix a little bit: open "OSx86Tools" and enable Quartz GL, a reboot might be required.
    13.) Now just replace the "PowerManagement.Bundle" which can be found here: \\OSX\System\Library\SystemConfiguration
    14.) Setting up 3G is quite easy:
    a) goto UMTS Fix Folder
    b) Install "MobileConnectDriver(2.7.1)-intel.pkg (make the modem available in System Preferences)
    c) open System Preferences - Network (3 new adapters will be found)
    d) press "Apply" and close System Preferences
    e) install "Mobile_Connect_Drv_App.pkg (lets you enter your PIN for SIM)
    f) open "MobileConnect" in your Applications Pane an enter SIM PIN -> besides that, there is NOTHING to set up here!
    g) open System Preferences -> Network -> Select HUAWEI Mobile
    h) Set up for T-Mobile-Network (google if you are on any other network):
    - Telephone Number: internet.t-mobile
    - Account Name: t-mobile
    - Password:TM
    i) go to "Advanced"
    - Vendor: Generic
    - Model: GPRS (GSM/3G)
    - APN: internet.t-mobile
    j) Press "OK" -> select "Show Modem status in menu bar" -> press "Apply"
    you can now simply connect to the net by using the phone symbol in the menu bar

    That's it. You are now the owner of the world's smallest MacBook (eeeMac, maybe)
    You can easily install all updates by using the application called "Software Update".

    It would be nice if someone could leave some comments on this guide (maybe where it can be improved) and help me with the missing LAN/WLAN drivers.

    So, enjoy your eeeMac,
    Balu

    Attached, you'll find a picture of the most beatiful workplace (iMac, eeeMAC, MacBook)

    It took me quite a while to figure all this out (more than ten installations till everything went smooth).

    I chose to install it on the SD, as it was the only way for a nice out of the box dual boot with windows (new chameleon 1.0.12 should solve this).
    Speed is acceptable (16GB SDHC at 4x speed).
    As I found everything working, I deleted the Windows partition and installed OSX to the hard drive. It's a bit faster now, but I didn't complain about speed on the SD either.

    New iDeneb v.1.4 stopped downloading at about 94%, so it'll take some more time to try out 10.5.6.

    I don't say you have to do it just that way, it's just about how I succeeded in getting an eeeMAC that dualbooted with the orginial Windows (of which I finally got rid now).

    I have no clue!
    I thought it would work using eeePC 1000H's tutorial, but that didn't work at all. So I figured out my own way.

    I still can't install anything else then iDeneb v1.3.
    iDeneb v1.4 and iPC 10.5.6 both install fine, but upon reboot, my eeeMAC gets stuck. Even switches (-v -x -f -s) don't change anything.
