22nd Dec 2009 : I needed  a XenServer at home to work on some project for my company (Activlan), I didn't want a real server because it would be too noisy in my apartment :) So I was looking for a silent computer and I made my choice with the elements bellow : Case : Lian Li PC-V351B Power Supply : Silverstone Nightjar ST45NF - 450W MotherBoard : Asus Maximus II Gene Cpu : Intel® Core™ 2 Quad Q9550 Ram : G.Skill Extreme Series MQ 4x4096Mo PC6400 Dual Channel CAS6 Video : PNY Quadro NVS 295 PCI-E 16x (for another workstation #XD4) Hard Drive : Seagate Barracuda ES.2 S-ATA - 1000 Go - 32 Mo (x2) I though it would work fine, just some question were remaining : The network adapter on the Asus motherboard might not be compatible with XenServer and I did choose two hard drive to build a RAID 1 but I though XenServer wouldn't be able to recognize the sata RAID controller. I was right on the Sata Raid controller, it was too mainstream chip raid controller so I never got it working. The network card was fine I just got some issue with XenServer 5.6 and the checksum calculation, I had to disable the TCP Offload on the hypervisor (eq : not the vms). Hard drives, the Seagate are not a good product at all, I got 5 break down in less than 2 years, I will never buy enterprise class Seagate again. Then in june 2011, the motherboard died... 10th Jun 2011 : The motherboard is dead... Maybe it has been the source of all the recent system crashes I had... So I got to move on and chose a new motherboard. I chose Intel DQ67OW, with a new CPU an Intel Core i7 2600 which contain the virtualization instructions I missed with the previous CPU (VT-d). Case : Lian Li PC-V351B Power Supply : Silverstone Nightjar ST45NF - 450W MotherBoard : Intel DQ67OW Cpu : Intel® Core™ i7 2600 Memory : Kingstone 16GB 1333MHz DDR3 ECC Reg CL9 DIMM (Kit of 2) DR x4 w/TS Intel Video : PNY Quadro NVS 295 PCI-E 16x (for another workstation #XD4) Hard Drive : Seagate Barracuda ES.2 S-ATA - 1000 Go - 32 Mo (x2) for vms Hard Drive : Seagate Barracuda® XT SATA Revision 3.0 - 2 To - 64 Mo for vms Hard Drive…

This is a simple "how to" install Apple Mac OS Snow Leopard on a netbook Asus EEEPc 1000HE What you need: EEEPC 1000HE A working Mac with SnowLeopard installed An external harddrive or USB key A Snow Leopard install DVD : only 29$ http://store.apple.com/us/product/MC223?mco=MTAyNTQwMjU Downloads: Kexts from rcfa at http://www.zshare.net/download/66089613f77ee41a/ NetbookInstaller at http://code.google.com/p/netbook-installer/downloads/list SuperDuper disk cloner at http://www.shirt-pocket.com/SuperDuper/SuperDuperDescription.html Simple steps: Format the USB drive with GUID format (e.g. with DiskUtility) Install SnowLeopard on external USB drive using the working laptop Boot from external USB drive, perform all upgrades, e.g. to 10.6.1, software installs (XCode etc). You could do this on the EEEPC, too, but most likely it's much faster on your SnowLeopard machine. Download and install SuperDuper.app on the external disk Boot from external USB drive, start NetbookInstaller and set up basic extensions and Bluetooth with the target volume being the EXTERNAL disk (if you pick the wrong disk you regular mac will stop working) Install kexts: Install these with kext Helper (to /System/Library/Extensions, not /Extra) and copy dsdt.aml, dsdt.dsl, smbios.plist, com.apple.Boot.plist to /Extra. Now, plug the USB drive into your EEEPC and boot from the external drive. You should have a working Hackintosh (albeit a bit slow). Format the internal disk in GUID format, I made 2 partitions 80Gb each and GUID the second one. Clone the external disk to the internal one using SuperDuper.app. This will take a loooong time. Start NetbookInstaller.app again and perform the same installs as above but now on the INTERNAL disk of your EEEPC. Reboot ... I found this how to on Small Computing, Ijust made some change to adapt it and I've tested it with success
