Summary of OSX on MSI Wind / Advent 4211 after a few days

Well so far so good. The ethernet is fixed, it runs my Dell 24" monitor at 1920x1200, the workaround for the graphics problem is found.

Only 2 issues remain: audio from the headphone socket, and it will not run WPA.

I have a few new items on the wishlist:

- to properly hibernate.

- turn off tap to click

- lid-down operation would be good. Maybe this requires wake on USB?

re turning off tap to click. Have you tried pressing the function button plus F3?

Fn+F3 turns off the trackpad, so yes it stops tap to click :-)

Are you saying that audio from the speakers works? It's just the headphone socket which doesn't work?

QuiteTall said...

yes, sound from the speakers works fine. For headphones you can use USB adapter.

Somebody got headphone out working! You have to run a script ever ytime you want to switch between headphone and internal speakers, but it works ... Just installed it on my Wind U100
