Where the story and journey of a not-so-hackintosh-newbie began :D
I upgraded on my Mini 1035nr and got a kernel panic so I replaced the mach_kernel by mounting my internal HD from an external OS. Everything was fine after that, I have read about others wiping their hard drive and if you have a bootable backup there is no need for this.
oh my! I've totally forgotten about the mini 1000 again! Thanks for the heads up.
It amazes me how well OSX runs on the 1000, better than any distro of Windows that I tested, simply wonderful!
Agreed. And the fact that among all the Mini's, it's the only one (Compaq Mini 700 is technically the same and one as the HP Mini 1000) that comes with Snow Leopard compatible WiFi card. :D
May I ask why you bought a Mini 1000 if you already had an MSI Wind?It was not any bigger or better than the wind (except maybe for the keyboard).
^It's long story. My first netbook was an EeePC 701. I bought it cause my ancient IBM ThinkPad and Samsung Sens Q10 already bogged down and we didn't have a PC. It was too small so I gave it to my cousin and got me an EeePC 900. Then after a while, I felt the 900's screen was also small. I sold it and bought the MSI Wind U100. Therefore, you're right that it's all about the screen size.By the time I had acquired the Wind, I was already a bonafide "netbook addict", hence it was hardly surprising that I wanted to get the 1000 as well.But after using the HP Mini 1000, I found out buyer's remorse was definitely not applicable to me:- beautiful, more elegant design. (it's a grown-up's netbook)- better build quality. (the Wind's hinges are a pity)- keyboard, you're right again, is infinitely better. (the Wind's keyboard is more cramped in comparison and the key caps are of low quality made from really thin plastic; no thicker than your average party plastic cups)- better Synaptics trackpad, even if the buttons are located where they are. (compare that to the Wind's Sentellic)- better speakers, we're talking about Alter Lansing. (yes, the 1000 has Altec Lansing like its bigger bro, the 311. Now compare that to the generic/no-name tinny ones of the Wind's)- And did I mention the 1000 is gorgeous and feels solid when held? And then as an added bonus, the 1000 turned out to be a better hackintosh than the Wind based from my own personal experience (stock WiFi is recognized in OS X Snow Leo as "AirPort Third Party"); except maybe for the fact that it's got a measly (1) 60GB PATA 1.8" Hard Drive and (2) I never got the internal mic to work even with VoodooHDA.At the end of the day, the 1000's build quality enabled me to overlook those 2 points mentioned above. The Wind, which I felt would crumble and fall apart in a few months of regular mobile use and abuse, seemed more logical on a top of a desk at home hooked up to an LCD monitor and a mouse. Turns out it makes a decent nettop
