Hi, much of this is credited to Res over here -> http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php? ... 36084&st=0
I also want to say I didn't create any of this all the hard work was done by others so... thank them.
0.) Update your bios to the newest available (this worked with the F.05 F bios)
1.) Get a clean unpatched iDeneb 10.5.5 image and burn it to a dvd
2.) Via a usb dvd drive boot the install disk (press f9 to select boot device then f8 to start the installer)
---a.) If you can't boot the install you either have a bad image or your dvd drive is crappy.
3.) Format/partition your drive however you like via "Disk Utility"
4.) Select whatever drive you formatted for OS X to install to.
5.) Click the customize button on the bottom left.
6.) Under patches expand "fixes" and check acpi, cpu, and remove firewire, also under patches expand "chipset" and check the ichx fix. Under applications select "Kext Helper" and "OSX86 Tools"
7.) Start the install... wait... wait some more... and wait. (if the screen goes all blue and crappy just start over)
8.) After the setup reboots go through all the stupid crap or you can skip it by following the steps in my attached text file titled "loop_fix.txt"
9.) Download my attached file titled "Kexts.zip" and unzip.
10.) Start "Kext Helper" and drag all the kext's you got from my zip into "Kext Helper" enter your password and check "easy install"
11.) Use either "OSX86 Tools" or "Disk Utility" to fix permissions.
---a.) While you are in "OSX86 Tools" you can fix the "About this Mac" stuff and enable quartz.
EDIT: I removed the wifi setup step becuase this kext is now pre-patched and included in the Kexts.zip
If all goes well you should have a pretty functional mini-mac. This was tested by me on a 1035NR. It worked for me and thats all I can really go on. Best of luck.
1.) Audio doesn't really work... makes a "pop" at boot and thats it. *FIXED WITH POSTED DRIVER*
2.) Ethernet doesn't work, it is seen by the os but does not function. *new driver posted*
3.) Sometimes (not often) you may have to turn on your wifi just before OS X boots via the slider switch.
4.) After video drivers are installed brightness Fn keys don't work. (updating to 10.5.6 fixes this)
5.) Touchpad "tap-to-click" off by defualt. Can be turned on in the control panel.
more to come... maybe...
