At boot press F12 to select your boot device, Insert your iAtkos s3 DVD in your DVD rom and select DVD Rom as boot device.
Now wait for installation screen, choose your language, agree to the terms, and select disk utility under utilities in upper menu. Format your hard drive like GUID Partition Table (your data will be lost).
( Click here to found out how to install OS X, and how to partition your HDD Drive )
Close Disk utility, and when installation screen appear, select your HDD and press Customize. Than check next options:
Proceed with install, and wait until installation complete.
After Install Succeeded, reboot, and wait for system to boot. This may take a while at first boot.
System should start now, enter your keyboard layout, location and registration and you are ready for the next step.
Unzip Toshiba_M100-165_Extra_Files.zip u downloaded earlier, copy radeonHD.kext, ATIRadeonX1000.kext and IONetworkingFamily.kext to System/Library/Extensions.
Run Kext Utility application from extra pack, to clear kext catche and rapair permisions. ignore errors if any.
Run Terminal from Utilities and enter “sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0″ without quotes, press enter, type your password and hit enter again.
Run DSDT patcher from Toshiba_M100-165_Extra_Files, and when file dsdt.aml is created, copy it to your hdd root. (u can also try to use existing dsdt.aml from Extra_Files instead of patching new one)
Now reboot, and cross your fingers
System should start now with 1280×800 resolution with QE/CI enabled. Go to System Preferences and select Network. Your new network should appear now, hit apply and your network is up and running.
In System Preferences choose Energy Saver and disable it cause sleep will cause u trouble…
Im still not able to run wireless card, but its easy fix with numerous OSX compatible USB wireless cards u can buy cheap…
I haven’t tested voodoo battery drivers because my battery is dead, but i think it should work as well .
Update to 10.6.6 combo ( http://support.apple.com/downloads/DL1349/en_US/MacOSXUpdCombo10.6.6.dmg ) causes problems with cursor, so after update, again, copy radeonHD.kext and ATIRadeonX1000.kext to System/Library/Extensions.
Run Kext Utility, restart.
Enjoy your new HACKIN-TOSHIBA
- intel pro/wireless 3945ABG drivers not working (anyway u should check development of drivers at http://code.google.com/p/iwidarwin/ and wait until somebody makes it work ). Alternative is to buy USB wireless or another mini pci wireless card to replace your intel pro/wireless 3945ABG.
- intel pro/100 vm every now and than fails to connect to network (just reboot and it works, it happens to me in one of 20 boots).
- sleep wont work (u should disable sleep in System Preferences / Energy Saver)
- system halts on start every now and than (i think its graphic card kexts) but just restart and everything should work ok again.
