Re: Hackintosh Guide at Gizmodo - 03-28-2009, 03:06 PM
I used the guide to install iaktos version on my dell mini 9 and apply kexts/packages/scripts instead of using DellEFI method (since it froze up after applying), and the only thing not working is wakeup/shutdown properly. I plan to replace the SSD later since I am not in a rush to fix this issue and I can save some money.
I did notice that the eject icon on the menu bar does not seems to do anything, it does not change or add a selection when I pluged in SD cards or USB flash drives. Anyone notice this? I am not sure if there is a fix or no?

Not sure what you mean by wakeup/shutdown,but I installed OS X from a retail Leopard DVD using the instructions at http://blogs.zdnet.com/Apple/?p=3258 and, while I'm generally thrilled with the results, one of the few things that is flakey is power management. I find it best to just shut the machine down when I'm done and reboot. Given how fast the little beast does this :-) I don't find this to be a burden. I've experienced power management issues on many of the windows laptops I've had in the past and I was kind enough to assume that power management was just a difficult problem for an OS that gets installed on a plethora of hardware platforms. I've now seen multiple posts about power management issues with OS X on non Apple hardware so I suspect my kindness is not misplaced.
