    I've always wondered whether anyone reads the guides that I posted. It's good to know that they are helpful to others

    Back to BT...
    One more comment that I'd like to make - after using SL on my 1008HA for 2 week, I noticed that BT does occasionally disappear after restart, almost a one in 3 chance. The solution is just keep restarting, without having to do anything else. It'll come back. Strange, but works.

    As to the jittery trackpad, have you switched over to VoodooPS2 yet? I found he ApplePS2 kext that came with NetbookBootInstaller never worked well with 1008HA. VoodooPS2 is by far better - works almost like a real Macbook, or as best as it can be with the crappy trackpad on the 1008HA.

    Default Ethernet: Apple USB to Ethernet adapter

    I can confirm that the Apple USB to Ethernet Adapter MB442Z/A works perfectly on my 10.6.1 1005 HA. Setup takes about 15 seconds.

    That post of yours surely was helpful to me!
    I noticed the BT disappearing sometimes (quite often, in fact) as well. But as you say, keep rebooting, and it will come back eventually.
    And yes, I also agree that the VoodoPS2 is better, perfect!, in fact. I had tried it on my Leopard install, where it would stall altogether at times, so I was a bit hesitant, but no regrets now.
    So, apart from the magical disappearing BT, Snow Leopard on the 1008HA is a complete success story for me. Despite the installation breaking off at 7 minutes ("Couldn't restart because of starting disk blah blah"). Who would have thought, eh?

    So we have Step 1, Step 2, Step 4 and 5... I don't know where the Step 3 is, but I think we don't need it, right?

    I have a Toshiba NB200 netbook and I'm going to try your method, but I have a question before beginning... you tell me to restore the Snow Leopard DMG to the 8GB Flash Drive... you meant to actually "install" the Snow Leopard on my pendrive? Because that was not clear to me.

    I have a working Snow Leopard on my desktop, but my Toshiba NB200 is still with Windows. Or is it a requirement to have Leopard working on the netbook, so I'll be able to run the OSInstall.mpkg file from it?

    Sorry, but this was really not clear for me, that's why I'm asking.
    Thank you by the way for all your effort, maybe you'll be able to help Toshiba's crew too.

    Question Intel GMA 950 Graphics - Stuck at 800x600

    Hey guys, maybe you can help me with this:
    I followed the Guide to the letter, but I can't get sound or a higher resolution (than 800x600). I have tried EFI strings with OSXTools, played with some kexts with kext-helper, and looked for potential solutions. I know that you guys got it to work, and so I throw myself upon thy mercy.
    Thanks,
    - Grepler

    Default OSInstall.mkpg issue?

    Hi, total noob at this-- having a problem with installing to an MBR partition.

    I just got the 1005ha, have 10.6 install disc loaded to a partition on my external USB HD, and ran Nebookmaker .8.3 RC3 on that partition. I also substituted the OSInstaller.mpkg.

    I can boot the 1005HA from the USB drive. I can get to Disk Utilities and format the open partition on my 1005HA as Mac OS Extended (Journaled).

    But no matter what I do, the installer itself tells me that my SL partition on the 1005HA can't be installed to because it is not GUID. I thought that substituting the OSInstaller.mpkg was supposed to overcome that issue?

    Any ideas? BTW, I'm running 0905 bios. Not sure if that could be the issue.

    Default 10.6.2 breaks Bluetooth ?!

    I tried a couple methods of 10.6.2: patched mach_kernel or Meklort's newest NetbookInstaller (RC4). In both cases, the upgrades completed without error, only that the Bluetooth is not longer recognized. BT is not detected at all in System Profiler.

    Anybody having better luck with their 10.6.2 update?

    For 10.6.2, the following procedure should upgrade you easily.

    Just to confirm, this works perfectly with prior methods on the 1005/1008, provided you use the old kernel version. The new kernel will not boot. No other changes are necessary, all your kexts will work fine and everything that worked (sleep, sound, mic, wifi with new card, bluetooth, video, etc. all works no problem).

    The way I'd recommend doing this update is in terminal typing something along the lines of:
    Code:
    sudo cp /mach_kernel /mach_kernel.bak
    Then, edit the "com.apple.Boot.plist" in your Extra folder, replacing:
    Code:
    	<key>Kernel</key>
    	<string>mach_kernel</string>
    with:
    Code:
    	<key>Kernel</key>
    	<string>mach_kernel.bak</string>
    Now, you can just update via Software Update and are good to go.

    Imperiopolis - thanks for the response.

    Yes, the old version of mack_kernel (from 10.6.1) would work well. However, I was referring the new ways that actually using the new mack_kernel from 10.6.2. This involves either using the patched version of mack_kernel
    http://s10lenovo.com/viewtopic.php?f...tart=10#p24941

    ; or patched version of NetbookInstaller (0.8.3 RC4) by Meklort.
    http://www.mydellmini.com/forum/gene...tml#post118527

    In both cases, when the mack_kernel 10.6.2 is used, no bluetooth
    Any one else tried this?
