[edit] ACER 5620Z - Retail DVD Installation


[edit] Extensa 5620z -Core 2 Duo T5550 1.83GHz

System Version: Mac OS X 10.5.6 (9G55) | Kernel Version: Darwin 9.6.0 | Bootloader: Chameleon 2.0rc | Install Method: Leopard Retail DVD 10.5.1 + Combo Update 10.5.6

My install is an adaptation of Karaakeha�s tutorial ---> I replaced my LACIE usb external hd with the laptops drive. Using my MBP I installed the Chameleon 2.0rc EFI Bootloader, my Retail DVD 10.5.1 which i bought for my MBP (had made a DMG of it earlier) and Combo Update 10.5.6 DMG to the destination HD. Using the Terminal i removed the following kexts from the install HDs System/Library/Extensions folder

  • AppleEFIRuntime.kext
  • AppleHWSensor.kext
  • AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext

I manually removed these and copied replacement kexts:

  • AppleACHIPort.kext (karaakehas tutorial 10.5.6 kexts)
  • JMicronATA.kext (karaakehas tutorial 10.5.6 kexts)
  • IOACHIFamily.kext (karaakehas tutorial 10.5.6 kexts)
  • AppleSMBIOS,kext (karaakehas tutorial 10.5.6 kexts)
  • dsmos.kext (karaakehas tutorial 10.5.6 kexts)
  • AppleACPIPlatform.kext (cromatrons Acer 5220 tutorial zip -->
  • OpenHaltRestart.kext (karaakehas tutorial 10.5.6 kexts)

I repaired the Permissions and removed the harddrive from the LACIE USB-case and put it back in the laptop. Changed the MoBo to ACHI mode from BIOS and the laptop booted up nicely. Unfortunately the laptops keyboard & mouse wasn�t detected, so I had to use USB mouse and a USB keyboard to create the user account. Then it was time to find out how to get things working.

What works:

What doesn't work

  • Sleep disables WIFI and sometimes keyboard functionality
  • Texas instruments 803c 5in1 sd-cardreader (driver should be possible to make) Chunnans fix shows the bus in System Profiler
  • LAN-fix and PCMCIA-fix disables Sleep functionality.

"NOTICE" - You can update everything using Apple Software Update but the Airport-updates break the WIFI so you have to do the fix again. Also the 2finger scroll might break so you might have to do the fix again. . . . . . .
