    I would be grateful for a hint where I can find it!
    It's hidden....

    open terminal, type "open "(without the quotation marks), drag your snow leopard drive in the finder and then add "/System/Installation/Packages" to it.

    now rename the original OSInstall.mpkg and drag the new one in the folder and your good...
    that should do the trick

    Thanks, that's great. Might want to add: have to be logged in as root in order to see it.

    Hmmm right, so my attempt to upgrade from Leopard ended with a generic error.

    Next I put my Snow Leopard DVD on a USB drive and wanted to install from there, so far so good, but even with the provided OSInstall file (and having tried several others) the installer would not let me install on my MBR drives, and I need to do thant since I want dual boot!

    Looking at the installer window, it looks different when I start the install from DVD than the one when I start the OSINstall directly from within my exsisting Leopard...

    Any thoughts?

    Is there a log we should be looking at for info about these "Generic EArror" messages? It'd be cool to get SL to happen - I have it on my "real" Mac and I like it pretty well.

    Finally got it to work!

    Snow Leopard on Asus EEE 1000HE with EVERYTHING working :-)

    This is how I went forward:

    1) Installed Snow Leopard from my Leopard-installation (10.5.7)
    (Used the OSInstall.pkg thingie and installed on my 2nd partition. As I got 2x 80GB partitions.)

    Then I used 'NetbookInstaller' and chose ONLY Chameleon 2 RC3 + GeneralExtensions.
    HERE IS THE LINK
    Let it finish. Can take up to like.. 5mins or something like that.

    Then I copied the extra folder to my new partition and overwrote everything.
    HERE IS THE LINK TO THE EXTRA FOLDER

    Then I rebooted and booted onto an fully working Snow Leopard.
    Update works like a charm,
    I now got a lovely Snow Leopard 10.6.1 with everything working on my Eee 1000HE.
    (PS. Note that I have the EU Version, and I did remove my WiFi card and replaced it with an AirPort card from ebay.)


    Thank you Imperiopolis that provided me with the needed files and the how-to that I eventually used!

    Cheers! :-)

    I've finally got most things working, but two issues remain:
    There are no drive symbols on my desktop anymore, only when I put another external disk in does it show up, but not the ones that were present at startup. Strange. Any ideas?
    Bluetooth - it was there at the beginning, but now after several reboots, it's just gone. Doesn't show up under USB devices either. I desperately need it back for tethering it to my iPhone though!

    Any suggestions grateful appreciated!

    The disks are hidden from the desktop in SL......click on your desktop, click on finder in the left corner and preferences. now under the general tab you can choose which items to show on your desktop

    did you make sure that Bluetooth is enabled in the BIOS?
    On my 1008ha it's the second tab from the left and then Onboard device preferences.

    Just a tip: Tether your iPhone via the USB cable
    It's easier. You just activate tethering on the phone, plug in the cable and that's it.
    It's faster. Bluetooth has a max bandwith of 1Mbps maybe 1.3Mbps if your're lucky. Over USB I get more than 3Mbps, you might even get more if AT&T already switched your area to HSPA(7.2Mbps).

    Thanks for the reply, King!

    The preferences setting sorted the drive icons on the desktop. Strange, of all MacOS versions this was the first time they were hidden by default...

    The bluetooth problem is more serious though. It is indeed enabled (and works fine under Win 7, and previously under Leopard 10.5.8). Being able to tether by bluetooth might be slower, but it avoids the biiig disadvantage that I'm charging my iPhone at the same time with my precious laptop battery! And I also dont fancy rummaging around with that cable. For a bit of browsing and an occasional email, bluetooth would be just fine. The USB tethering method does work on my machine, for the record...

    look here the second post:
    Lenovo IdeaPad S Series Forum • View topic - 1008HA step by step OS X installation (w 10.5.8)

    I followed the steps under "b) Tethering via Bluetooth" and that's how I got bluetooth fully working...

    Unhappy

    Here's how I got it working:

    "For some reason, bluetooth was not recognized in my case. I ran UpdateExtra under /Extra, and BT showed up after restart."

    As outlined in this post:
    http://www.s10lenovo.com/viewtopic.p...t=3315&p=22950

    Took a long time to run UpdateExtra (>5 mins), but now it's fine. Except that now my mouse movement by trackpad has gone a bit jittery!
