    Smile Just done, SL on 1008HA

    Hi,
    Thanks a lot for the help, I managed to have a fully working installation on my brand new 1008HA.. just some note. To help out some guys who may have the same problems I have. To install the bootloader i had to do some command line magic, if followed this guide http://lifehacker.com/5351485/how-to...tart-to-finish else my usb stick was not working. I had to do twice, once on the usb, and after install from the usb (booting in single user mode) to the HD.

    For wifi I have bought a sitecom usb dongle, 19 euros, drivers for mac can be easily found on the net..

    Sometimes has some problems in shutting down, but for the rest is sweeet!

    I have a couple of issues that I couldn't figure out from this guide.

    It appears that the USB drive will not be bootable, so it implies that I can only run OSInstall.mpkg within a working OS X. This means I can only do either one of the two:

    1. Upgrade a working OS X.5 on my 1008HA; or
    2. With another working mac, install SL into an external drive, and clone to the 1008HA HDD later.

    Now my questions:
    For path 1, you can only do an upgrade (since you can wipe the partition where you are currently booting Leopard from). However, wouldn't the existing bootloader and kext's in Extra/Extension (and all the other hacks) interfere with the new installation of SL? This path doesn't seem to allow a clean installation directly on the existing internal HDD.

    For path 2, I successfully installed SL to an external HDD, and can boot from it (attached as external HDD). However, it seemed to installed way too many unnecessary kexts. I'm not sure if cloning the external drive to the internal HDD would make the internal HDD bootable properly (it doesn't say in the guide).

    [EDIT/UPDATE] I got it working now. I took it a step further - after installing SL to external drive, I booted from it and ran the installer once more to install to the internal drive. The install is very clean and snappy. I documented everything at the link below.

    I finally got it working with installing from scratch, without updating from working Leopard.
    Restored the SL image to the flash drive and then used NetbookBootMaker to make it bootable.
    It got stuck at "8 minutes left" during the install but I just quit the Installer, rebooted and see: it works.
    Copying the Extra folder to the HDD gave me sound and the NetbookBootMaker made my HDD bootable as well.

    Does y'all's volume control keys work?
    Mine don't.....any idea?

    Thanks,

    Read the audio section of this guide -
    http://www.eeeboot.org:/

    You need to create keyboard macros for this the volume keys to work.
    Instead of Spark, I use KeyboardMaestro. Same idea.

    Default Installer will not install on running OS X

    Trying to upgrade OS X.5.5 to SL, but the standard (not the MBR version) installer will not install:

    "You cannot install Mac OS X on this volume. Mac OS X cannot be installed onto the running system volume"

    I do have a Linux partition after the leopard partition. Can that be the reason?

    Anybody else having this issue?

    I needed the MBR version, as the partition table is not GUID

    But this failed to install with an error 10 (I think).

    Default Failing on 1005HA

    I have been able to get up to 10.5.8 on my 1005HA with everything working OK except - sleep on lid close (don't care much), Ethernet (nobody got this, right?) and bluetooth (don't much care.)

    I tried the steps in this guide and am unable to get a clean install - both times failed with a "Generic Error."

    Should I be installing to an empty partition? I've been trying instead to upgrade to the existing install.

    Oh well, maybe soon someone smarter than me can step-by-step the 1005HA . . . .

    Thanks everyone for the time & effort you have put in!

    Is it me or is there a reason why I can't find the System/Installation/Packages folder to put the OSInstall file in? I can find it neither on my exsisting installation nor on the Snow Leopard DVD...

    I would be grateful for a hint where I can find it!
