hello LeMaurien!

thank you very much for your work and great tutorial. i am trying to install on a hp mini 110 1030. i picked up a refurb dell 10v the other day and had very little trouble getting that machine all set up and running, but this hp is giving me nightmares. i followed your guide twice, but i keep getting kernel panics on boot. i can boot with the hard drive bootloader, but not with a dedicated 2gb usb key. have you had any luck with the 110/1030? it's been hard cobbling the online resources for this one, any additional help would be appreciated. great work again, thank you.

It might be because the kexts are not compatible with the 110. I've a Mini 1000.
Boot up in verbose mode and check where you're having kernel panics. What does the line say?

I have 10.6 EFI on my 1000, but when i go to shut down, the screen goes off but the lights stay on and the fan keeps running. I hold the power switch and it completely shutdown. Reboot works fine.

^Blank screen? But you still have keyboard and touchpad functioning?
Sounds like a dsdt related issue. Did you try patching your own DSDT? You can try this.

MM said...

yes i get a black screen. I dont know if i still have keyboard and touchpad, because i cant see the screen. lol but i will do the thing you suggest. i will let you know.

now im confused. I went to comment out the two strings it asked me to comment out [device (ESUB)], but neither are even present. is that normal, nad do i just proceed with the patch?

So I just found about this last weekend. I've a fully functional (except the mic - that's the closest thing we've got to fully functional on the HP Mini 1000) MacBook Mini on 10.6.2 Snow Leopard and then just for fun, I swapped back the 1 GB ram and then closed the lid.

Broken sleep. Blank screen, red trackpad light - and it won't wake up. Hibernatemode was set to 0 as I did this experiment and so the sleepimage/ram size argument, didn't count, I believe. So that said, I can say that sleep works best with 2 GB's ram + appropriate DSDT mod and SleepEnabler.kext.

Will this work the same way with a HP mini 210? That's the one I have and I could really help me if you could clarify that to me to make sure I won't kill my computer.
