Single Boot OSX 10.5.7 on Toshiba NB205 with Chameleon 2.0 RC1 Bootloader
Guide by CannonTrane
**NOTE** This guide should also work well for Retail DVD install. Only thing that changes is a manual install of Chameleon.**

Big thanks to wingzero619 for making his guide on installing iDeneb 1.3 - without him, this would not be possible. Also thanks goes to everyone involved in creating BOOT132 & the iDeneb install method, as well as anyone responsible for the links at the end of this guide.
What you need:
1- NB205-SlimBuild-Preboot.iso http://www.mediafire.com/file/t2omkt...ld-Preboot.iso
2- Blank CD
3- iDeneb v1.5 on DVD
4- Toshiba NB205 (mine is a NB205-N310/BN)
5- If you want Wifi, you have to replace the mini pci card
Ensure you are plugged in for power.
0) BIOS Settings
Disable USB Sleep & Charge
Set SATA Controller to Compatibility mode
Turn on Legacy USB
1) Booting to iDeneb 1.5
Burn NB205-SlimBuild-Preboot.iso to CD
Insert CD into USB CD/DVD Drive connected to NB205
Press F12 to select boot to CD, press enter
Wait for Init.img to load
Switch CD out with iDeneb 1.5 DVD
Press enter (or type 9f then press enter)
Type "-v -f" and press enter
Watch and wait (or grab some coffee!)
2) iDeneb 1.5 Setup (in all 1024x600x32 Glory!)
Once setup is up and running, launch a Terminal Window and type the following:
diskutil unmountDisk /dev/disk0
Open Disk Utility
Clik on your Hard Drive then click the Partition tab
Partition the Hard Drive with one partition and make it use GUID (under Options)
Name the partition.
Mine looks like this:
Apply the Partition
GUID || OSX 149.05GB ||
Close Disk Utility and continue with setup
Select your new Mac OS Partition and click Continue
Set the following Customizations:
Since Chameleon is a default setting, we do not have to select a bootloader. Technically, you don't have to select the Vanilla kernel either.
VoodooPower with GeneralCPUMControl
OPTIONAL: Click Skip (to cancel verification of install media)
Wait for the installer to finish.
3) Booting up to OSX
Boot up like normal from the hard drive. You should see the Chameleon 2.0 Bootloader screen and the computer should boot up fine to the fresh install. Now it's time to install the remaining Kexts to Chameleon to gain full functionality.
For this, we will need to go into the Terminal
Make sure the Boot CD is on the Drive before doing this.
ENTER YOUR PASSWORD THEN PRESS ENTER
mount_hfs /dev/disk0s1 /Volumes/EFI
cp -f -R -p -v /Volumes/ToshNB205Boot1/Extensions /Volumes/EFI/Extra
umount -f /Volumes/EFI
rm -rf /Volumes/EFI
Make sure you boot from the hard drive. If everything went ok, you should load into OSX without issues.
You can also go back into the BIOS and Turn Off Legacy USB
Dual Monitors Works
WebCam works, but not in Photo Booth (ok in iChat and Webclient of Gmail)
Audio Works, headphone automatic sensing does not. To switch between the built-in speakers & headphones, use the Settings in OSX to select the output device.
Sleep works. (As long as you made the BIOS settings changes for Legacy USB and Sleep & Charge)
All USB Ports work.
SD Card reader works.
Battery meter works.
Wifi does not work because the NB205's Atheros AR9285 chip is not yet compatible with OSX.
Bluetooth does not work.
