You folks in this forum totally rock! I have been Hackintoshing my Dell mini 1012 and have it working after using NBI 0.8.4pre. There is so much info out there and I was using some other versions with limited success, kernel panic, endless reboots, etc.
Now everything boots normally and Ethernet works. Trackpad works with three-finger scrolling. Looks like the system goes to sleep on inactivity so I need to figure out how to put the display to sleep as well, but that can wait.
My main issue now is that I have Wifi after updating with IO80211Family.kext but although it recognizes my network, I end up with the message "AirPort has the self-assigned IP address 169.254.148.44 and will not be able to connect to the Internet."
I have tried rebooting my router, toggled my Configure IPv4 from Using DHCP to Off and back again. I have tried renewing my DHCP lease. My DNS tab was blank so I manually added the info that is in my MacBook but that didn't help. Any ideas, anyone?
