It’s been a while since something happened in the HP Mini OSx86 scene, particularly on the older units – Mini 110 and 1000. A forumer at myhpmini.com, “thebubzie” has been kind enough to package for us an installer for Intel Graphics Media Accelerator. It’s been conceived to work on Mac OS X 10.5.x Leopard and [...]

HP imposes a whitelist of hardware that’s sanctioned to work on their computers, the Mini’s included. Should you happen to be like me who’s into the OSx86 hobby and are a Mini owner (other than the 1001TU/1000 models), you’ve come across wireless network glitch – or nightmare, rather – in Mac OS X Leopard.

VoodooHDA.kext is a great kext – it’s the reason why I don’t have to live with a mute Mini MacBook forever. It solved that one detail that caused my conversion to a believer in the HP Mini 1000 as a hackintosh. It even broke the love spell I was under with the MSI Wind U100. [...]

In attempts to get closer to the real thing – and by “real thing” we pertain to MacBooks and in particular to the MacBook Air, I’m yet in anaother tinkering stage. I was reading prasys.co.cc and with his newest post being about editing FakeSMC to reflect “real” SMC versions for the MacBook Air, I decided [...]

Note: You’d still need OpenHaltRestart.kext cause OSXRestart.kext is not capable of shutting down the machine. Some may experience kernel panics with the combination of these two kexts but some may not. For more details, visit this thread at MyHPMini. This is only for Snow Leopard. EDIT: I’m using EvOReboot.kext with OSXRestart.kext, so far no kernel [...]
