Anyone have an Nlite ini file they would like to share that works well with the NC10?November 27, 2008 at 8:31 am #171798barney91Member
I do, but its quite specific for my needs (e.g. embedded serial code etc). The guid you want is here:
700meg instillation, no problem! Though I think with 160gb drive you dont need to worry too much UNLESS you have a small fast SSD going in.
The EEEPC 901 faliure is that its primary drive is a 4gb FAST SSD then a larger slow 8/16gb SSD. 4gb quickly gets filled and the netbook becomes unusable. BIG ISSUENovember 27, 2008 at 7:10 pm #171797ji0005Member

Did you get it to work properly? I’ve been toying around with nlite for a while and still haven’t been able to get things the way they should be.
Started out doing more or less exactly like the abovementioned tutorial suggests and couldn’t even get to installing because it is not meant to be installed from an USB stick. But that was easily fixed.
Now I’m on my second install with a running XP but still have quite a few problems.
Biggest, I imagine, is the fact that my battery is not recognized. I am sure I did not remove battery drivers with nlite, so I do not know what went wrong. I believe it has something to do with the fact that in Device Manager I have two pieces of unrecognized hardware. Can’t find any drivers for them either. The device instance ID’s are ROOT*PNP0C31PNPBIOS_1 and Root*PNP07001_0_13_0_0_0. Googled both with no results.
Also the only way I can get the NC10 to hibernate is through Start Menu. Nothing happens with fn+Esc or shutting the lid. I’ve checked Power Options, that’s where I luckily could enable it at all. Right off the bat, it was disabled. But I specifically remember not removing it or disabling with nlite.
Those are the two major problems. Everything else seems to more or less work. If anybody has any tips on what to do or would like to share their nlite ini file (serial removed of course) I would really appreciate it. Really, really, really appreciate it. I would like to start using my already month old netbook sometime soon (wanted to format it before and then sent it in to have the LCD replaced. Took more than two weeks – what a drag)
Edit: AND I just found out that I have to manually shut down the computer. Meaning that when I press Shut down in XP, I eventually get the “It is now safe to shut down this computer” screen I haven’t seen since…forever.
What caused all this?! What should my next step be? I’ve had about enough of installing XP to last me a few months, so I’d like to get it right this next inevitable go-around.
