You have here pretty detailed instructions (by Rainbow_Demon):

Acer Aspire One ZG5 won't boot up [Solved] | Kioskea.net

But still, you need to be very careful and read it more then once. When you are completely sure about the process, only then proceed to update.

Okay... I got the bios flashed successfully.
Then I installed Champlist 2.01.
Then I downloaded the latest version of Chameleon, and now this Acer ZG5 just restarts every time it go's to the gray Apple screen.
I could re-install, but I'd like to fix the problem if I could.
It has SL 10.6.3 installed on it.
All the help I get here is most appreciated.

Did you follow the instructions from my first post?

Check step 8:

8. Snow Leopard 10.6.2 broke Intel Atom compatibility, so to upgrade to 10.6.2 and beyond requires using a patched kernel. I downloaded the 10.6.2 version from Insanelymac, thanks to teateam for this. The new kernel was unarchived, named mach_kernel_atom2 and placed in the root of the hard drive. Next the com.apple.boot.plist was edited to use the new kernel, as shown here:

I actually ended up installing with Nawcoms Modusb because my retail disk is 10.6.3.
It's working really well with the exception of the Chameleon thing.
Legacy kernel seams to work great in that machine.

Keep in mind that if you are using the latest versions of Chameleon you need to use the info in com.apple.boot.plist in the new org.chameleon.Boot.plist

Sorry, I'm kind of a noob.
I'm not sure what you mean, or how to make that happen.

com.apple.Boot.plist is an "original" Mac OS X file (it is present also in the vanilla(untouched) OS), but can also be present in Extra folder in which case Chameleon will load the info from this one and ignore the original one (original location)

With the new versions of Chameleon the guys changed the one from Extra folder from com.apple.Boot.plist to org.chameleon.Boot.plist, so if the old one is present no info will be loaded, like flags, additional kernel info (in case you are not using the vanilla one), Graphics Enabler info etc

The files can be edited in a good text editor (TextEdit works)

The video drags for lack of a better description on this machine (Acer ZG5) if I go full screen on Youtube for instance.
It seems as though I have full graphics support because I have the transparent tool bar.
Does anyone have suggestions?
