One of the real reasons I wanted a netbook was to be able to play around a bit with some things I would not normally get to do on a daily machine. A key goal is to get OSX installed and running so Iâ€™ve got a netbook hackintosh system going. So far I do actually have OSX installed and running along with Windows 7 and XP though the standard hardware inside the Samsung NC10 does not have any network drivers within OSX. I knew this going in and thought it would only add to the fun of toying around with this system.
Tonight I remembered that I had a spare Airport Extreme in the house and thinking the card inside might work in the NC10 I ran to get it along with some tools â€¦
The Airport Extreme open and card removed â€¦
I then took the back case off the NC10 to get to the good stuff â€¦
Unfortunately it was pretty obvious right away that the card was quite a bit larger than the internal space available so Iâ€™ll have to try again with a known working option.
This was a fun project while everyone else in the house was sleeping. Hopefully Iâ€™ll be able to report back soon enough after a successful transplant.
