Yet another step by step guide to install OS X
by Carlos » Fri Jan 09, 2009 8:57 am

**UPDATED on 1/12/08 based on feedback and posts later in the thread** **UPDATED on 1/20/08 based on feedback and posts later in the thread** **UPDATED on 1/24/08 to note the minimum version of the wi-fi enabler** **UPDATED on 1/28/08 to add info about Bluetooth and sleep**

Install OS X on Lenovo S10 Please post in the Mac OS section of s10lenovo.com if you have questions/issues (Note: Kexts should be installed using the kexthelper application) (Note2: Some people have reported a failure for some kexts to install properly, and the fix is to manually clear the caches. Also be sure to reboot between kext installs. I very strongly recommend using the manual clearing method at the bottom of this file, and rebooting each time you install a kext or group of them.) (Note3: If you have an internal Bluetooth module, it will prevent the machine from sleeping if it is on. To disable, before booting to an OS, press the wireless selection button until the wireless light is blue. It may take many button presses.)

Install from Wind DVD with no changes in options/settings (MSIWindosx86.iso) Fix MBR if needed (this is usually NOT needed): fdisk -u /dev/rdisk0 (also maybe: fdisk -e /dev/rdisk0) To bypass setup/migration loop, boot into single user mode (boot option, -s). /sbin/fsck –fy /sbin/mount –uw / cd /Volumes/<YourHDname>/var/db/ touch .AppleSetupDone Set root password: passwd Reboot and log in as root, create personal account. Install the wi-fi enabler, reboot, log in as user, apply updates to 10.5.6. Wi-fi enabler: "bcm43xx_enabler 2.sh" (Earlier versions do not work with 10.5.6!) After your apply the 10.5.6 update and reboot, you will lose KB and mouse. There are two solutions to this; either plug in external devices, or apply these kexts *before* rebooting after loading the update: Both kexts from WindPS2Files.zip -http://web.me.com/andrew.schultz/WindPS2Files.zip Reboot Install the three Intel GMA950 video kexts from 0x27ae.zip -http://darwin950.googlecode.com/files/0x27ae.zip Clear caches, reboot AppleACPIPlatform.kext from "AppleACPIPlatform.kext for 10.5.6.zip" The correct file is 772kb/700,661 bytes, 55 items dated 10/9/07 This fixes the fans and speedstep Clear caches, reboot VoodooPower.kext -- http://www.superhai.com/files/leopard/r ... r.kext.zip Power GUI if desired -- http://www.superhai.com/files/leopard/r ... ontrol.zip Clear caches, reboot EHCISleepEnabler.kext -- http://superhai.com/files/leopard/relea ... r.kext.zip ClamShellDisplay -- http://superhai.com/files/leopard/relea ... y.kext.zip Clear caches, reboot Now test whether your system goes into sleep when you close the lid and wakes when you open it. If it does NOT, then open the Info.plist file in: /System/Library/Extensions/IOUSBFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleUSBEHCI.kext/Contents/ Look for: <key>CFBundleVersion</key> <string>3.1.5</string> (This number varies, mine is 3.2.5) And add this below it, then save and reboot: <key>OSBundleCompatibleVersion</key> <string>1.0</string>

Delete the AppleHDA.kext from /extensions Reboot Install AzaliaAudio.pkg -- http://www.mediafire.com/?enez1guzz1g Reboot Install CHUD tools -- http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?mzjlkm4idyb Reboot Audieee_1.0.1.zip -- http://www.s10lenovo.com/download/file.php?id=65 Put the file in /Applications/Utilities and run it. Audio works now; use menubar icon to toggle (default is off). Add the Audieee application to your startup items. To enable the trackpad prefpane: 10.5.6 Synaptics Trackpad Enabler.zip -- http://www.megaupload.com/ru/? d=7WAN7BMH

IF KEXTS DON'T SEEM TO WORK, TRY THIS To manually clear extension caches, as root: rm /System/Library/Extensions.mkext rm -r /System/Libraray/Caches/* touch /System/Library/Extensions

Thanks for this! I was also getting frustrated since the "latest and greatest" installation I could find was from at least 1 month ago. It just seemed strange that people didn't keep up with the OS X installation stuff, or contributing what new stuff they did. Thanks again!

Thanks for the Installation hints. You forgot to mention, that: 1. You need Kext Helper B7 to install the *.kext files 2. To activate Sleep Mode you will also need the File ACPIBattery.kext from superhai Please add this two files into your download package and everyone will be happy

Thanks Carlos, great updated guide. Could you tell us if your guide works with those of us who have installed internal S10 BT radios? To be honest, I tried everything out there for weeks now, and I still can't get sleep working.

Could you tell us if your guide works with those of us who have installed internal S10 BT radios?

I don't have an internal BT module, so I don't know the answer on that. Is it possible to buy/add that? I do wish I had it. I'm using a MacSense USB BT module, and it does work just fine, and you can sleep with it on and active.

To be honest, I tried everything out there for weeks now, and I still can't get sleep working.

It could be that your installation is just munged up now. Might be time to do a clean install (erase partition) and try again. Unless there are hardware variations in the S10, I would expect this to work just like it does on mine. I was very careful to document every step in the same order I did it; the order can be important, as it is with some other drivers.

1. Can you tell me, why I should clear the extension cache manually 2. The Trackpad Prefpane App does not work 3. Sleep Mode does not work

1. Normally not needed. If you load a kext and it seems to not work at all, try manually clearing and reboot. 2. Did the trackpad enabler install without errors. 3. Double-check the changes to the plist file just after loading the clamshell and ehci kexts.

so according the instruction i should install os update should i just jump to 10.5.6 update? and install all 6 following updates? so i don't need to go 10.5.5 first > 10.5.6?

I took, all updates offered by the automatic software update. No need to go step by step.

I have actively used the machine for about 7 hours now, across a couple days. I prefer it over my MSI Wind, as I thought I would. Much better-quality hardware. Here's what I know is/is not working... Working: Wi-fi SD card PCI slot with a card reader, but not a Linksys EC1000 NIC -- Will try eSATA tomorrow Sound output with internal speakers Backlight control with keys Volume control with keys Battery meters/indicators Sleep with clamshell or manual, wake with clamshell opening Bluetooth with MacSense USB adapter, can sleep with adapter in place OKR button gives Expose Novatel (Verizon) USB720 EV-DO aircard MacBook Air USB ethernet adapter Camera Trackpad with tap, no extra features like scrolling Press power to bring up sleep/shutdown/reboot options KB works properly with buttons in the right places (such as CMD)

Not working: Ethernet Microphone System shuts off if battery dies, instead of sleeping Need to test: VGA External sound in/out
