    Tis guide is copied from insanelymac.com IT is written for the AAO though.
    This tutorial will help you Install Mac OS X to Acer Aspire One A150 from version 10.5.2 – 10.5.5
    WARNING !!! not for the faint hearted ( children don't try this at home )
    I have been doing a lot of trial and error on this just to get my AA1 work in Mac OS, but i guest my sacrifice has paid off, I thinks its safe to follow this tutorial :twisted:

    Need fixing are the following :
    Touchpad Tap ( I'll try to recover the old 10.4.7 kext i have before since touchpad tap was working for my ECS laptop, I'll just update you once testing was OK )
    Wifi Atheros AR500EG ( Still trying to find ways to solve the issue )
    Sleep mode ( hmm not sure still looking for solution )

    :!: Things you needed for this tutorial :
    - A DVD containing Kalyway 10.5.2 install (you can find this on the usual 'torrent sites')
    - The Kalyway 10.5.3 ComboUpdate (you can find this on the usual 'torrent sites')
    - The Official 10.5.4 DELTA update from here
    - The Official 10.5.5 update from here
    - Paul's Wind driver and utility pack here
    :!: place the above list on a USB stick or CD / DVD
    - An external DVD drive
    - Acer Aspire BIOS update here

    How to update Acer Aspire One A150 BIOS
    Thanks to : machani for this link here I modified and posted the procedures below.
    1. You need a USB flash drive (SanDisk or any Generic brand)
    2. Make it bootable to DOS by following these instructions: http://macles.blogspot.com/2008/07/flashing-bios.html
    Follow this screenshoot when creating the bootable USB here
    (NOTE: The screenshot shows the Drive is /dev/sb1. This screenshot seems to be done from a Linux machine. From XP, the Drive shows up as D:\ or E:\. Verify that that is the correct drive letter for your USB flash drive).
    3. After you click OK, unzip the new BIOS files and copy the three files: 3304.bat, flashit.exe and ZG_3304.fd to the flash drive
    4. Leave the flash drive in the USB port, reboot, hit F12 at the initial boot prompt.
    5. Choose USB drive to boot
    6. It should bring you to a DOS screen choose number 5
    7. Change to the C: drive by typing: C: followed by ENTER
    8. Type: 3304
    (You need to have your laptop connected to external power supply or it won't work).
    9. When you reboot, hit F2 at the boot prompt and verify that your BIOS version is 3304
    :!: After updating your BIOS, enter BIOS setup and press F9 to 'restore best performance defaults'. This step is VITAL!

    Step by Step - installing OSX on your AA1 A150
    1. Insert the Kalyway 10.5.2 disk into your external DVD drive, and plug it into your AA1
    2. Start your AA1, and press F12 when prompted to choose a boot device, select your DVD drive
    3. When prompted to hit a key to boot from CD/DVD, hit a key.... you'll see a ton of text scroll up the screen - just sit tight
    4. You'll next be presented with your language select screen. I imagine you want English, so just hit enter! It'll then sit doing 'Preparing Installation' for a while.
    5. When you get the 'Welcome' screen, don't hit continue straight away! Move your point to the 'Utilities' menu, and select 'Disk Utility'.
    6. When the Disk Utility application has loaded, click your main drive in the left hand pane (probably the very top entryis your HDD manufacturer's name')
    7. Click 'Partition' on the right hand pane.
    8. Under 'Volume Scheme', click '1 partition'. ( this varies on your desire on how many partition you want )
    9. Give your disk a nice name.
    10. Click 'Apply'
    11. Wait for it to do it's thing, then select 'Quit Disk Utility' from the 'Disk Utility' menu.
    12. You'll now be taken back to the installer welcome page. Click 'Continue'.
    13. Click 'Agree' when the legalese blurb pops up.
    14. Choose a destination drive - obviously the one you just partitioned! Click 'Continue'.
    15. Click 'Customize'.
    16. Completely uncheck 'Language Translations'.

    19. Completely uncheck 'Audio_Drivers'.
    20. Expand 'Networks_Drivers'. and select ONLY 'RTL1000'.
    21. Completely uncheck 'Mobo_Chipsets'.
    22. Completely uncheck 'Thirds_Applications'. ( I choose some applications which I have used before but if you are a 1st time Mac user need you need uncheck this area )
    23. completely uncheck 'Patches'.
    24. Click 'Done'
    25. Click 'Install' and go and make yourself a cup of tea! ( nice one Paul :lol!: )
    26. :!: The install will now take place, if you want to speed it up, you can 'Skip' the installation DVD check.
    28. When the 'Install Succeeded' screen appears, eject the install DVD and hit 'Restart'.
    29. OS will now start up for the first time, and take you through the setup wizard.
    30. When you have booted into OSX for the first time, goto drive name > applications > Utililities > Terminal
    31. Insert the disk containing the Kalyway 10.5.3 update in a USB or CD
    32. Run '1_Kalyway_UpdCombo10.5.3.pkg' this wil upgrade the system from 10.5.2 to 10.5.3 and step through the installation process. Do NOT hit restart when prompted!
    33. After the above install has completed, run '2_kalyway_10.5.3_kernel.pkg' and step through the installation process. Select the 'vallina_kernel_9.3' kernel.
    34. Restart your AA1.
    35. When prompted to do so, press F8 to interrupt the Darwin startup.
    36. Type 'update -v' (without the quotes obviously), and press enter. Your AA1 may reboot a couple of times during this update process. Don't panic!
    37. When you have booted back into OSX, insert the disk containing the 10.5.4 update.
    38. Double click the 'MacOSXUpd10.5.4.dmg' to mount the image.
    39. After the image has mounted, run 'MacOSXUpd10.5.4.pkg' and step through the installation process.
    40. When prompted press F8 and use "-v" to boot without quotes ( a lot of text msg comming out dont worry system will boot it self soon )

    oh skeen, I tought you meant a general iatkos guide...
    Erm, no idea about iatkos 10.5.5
    could be worth trying a combo update with the "script" that deletes appleintelcpupowermanagement running
    I tried that before and it nuked my install. but it also did that on this install of kalyway the first time, but second time it was fine, exact same process both times...
    or you could go here and try the pre and post update patches http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=109102
