Hackintosh 1005HA/1005HAB, etc Part 3-First Boot and Kext Installation
Ok. So you’ve installed Snow Leopard. Now you need to be able to boot from your hard drive instead of that big old piece of junk hanging off your computer. Now you need to be very careful in following these steps. I had to wipe and reinstall about 10 times in the last 2 weeks til I finally stopped being so hasty and took my time.
Ok. So. Shut your computer completely down. Turn it on and hold ESC so you can boot from the USB again. Yes, the usb, not the hard drive. When the Chameleon bootloader appears, select your internal hard drive, not the USB/sd card. At this point, you should be greeted by a setup section for Snow Leopard (if not, follow the same thing, except before hitting enter to go into the internal hard drive, type -v and post what you find is the problem with the bootup process. At this point, fill out all the info, etc etc. If you have another mac, DO NOT TRANSFER ANY DATA! When you select this option, it will take the updated Kernel and everything and you’ll have to restart the entire process once again.
Finally, you will get to the Desktop on Snow Leopard. Congrats, give yourself a pat on the back. The easy part is over. Now slow your mind down, because you need a lot of patience with this part. Use a different USB drive and copy the folder that you downloaded with the myhack_installer_1.1 and all that stuff and copy it onto the NEW USB. Then, plug that into the netbook. What you want to do is run the myhack_installer_1.1 on the netbook again, select the same things, but have it install onto the internal hard drive (not the USB drive). This process will take about 5-15 mins.
Once that is done, go to the Extras folder from that package you downloaded and transfer all that to the /Extras folder in the hard drive (go to the finder, select “Macintosh HD” and go to the extras folder in there). Copy everything into this folder, and replace all the files it asks to replace.
In the folder you downloaded, go to the /system/library/extentions folder and copy all the files in there into the same folder on the hard drive (go to “Macintosh HD”, /system/library/extention and paste all the .kext files in there.
Next, go to folder you downloaded and go to the Sound folder. Double click the VoodooHDA.prefPane and install for all users. This will turn out an error. Just click Ok and ignore this.
Finally, navigate to the “Macintosh HD” again and double click the “pfix” terminal code, type your password, and let this run. This can take anywhere from 5-20 mins. When terminal says “Process Complete. Logout”, quit terminal and restart your netbook. This time, you can remove both the installer USB/sd and the other USB.
