After over a month.... 8) i finaly made it ...

Here is my package for G550 with nvidia 210m GFX.
I found that Lenovo Y550 is similar with G550 and on one Chinese forum (PCBETA) i find modified DSDT for Y550 (don't ask me for hell with chinese fonts and google trnslations :).
I edited that DSDT (removed GFX, and AUDIO section) and now works on G550 including sleep, hibernate. (USE IT AT YOUR OWN!)
In package is included original Y550 DSDT - so if someone is want to look at it with more attention to make more precise DSDT for G550 Go FOR IT!
Also included is tools that are you need for modifications and first help.

Network... not tested ... included is modified kext for my AirLIVE USB wifidongle.

All is on 10.6.3 - next step 64bt.

Regards!

Happy G550 :)

I installed 10.5.5 using a msiwindosx.iso file I found online. I used the combined update to patch it to 10.5.8 after installing a few kext files. I am just having trouble with the intel gmax4500 video card as I can't get it to run at the native resolution without losing the cursor.

Dear Lenovo G550 user,

I am facing a mysterious problem with my G550 and have exhausted the LEnovo forum to find answers.
May be one of you can help?
I used my G550 to check emails at night then I did a proper shut down and left it by my bedside. It never started the next morning. When I try to turn it on, the little lights (indicating its powered up, volume up, down, mute, etc) come on but the hard drive doesnt make any noise and the screen doesnt come on.
Num lock and Caps lock lights dont work. When I insert a CD/DVD in the drive, it takes it and spins but then nothing more. I have tried to plug it with an external monitor but it was not registered :)

Unfortunately, I ran out of warranty less than a month ago. So Lenovo wants to charge me $80 even to talk about my system. Any suggestions?

Could somebody please upload the newest DSDT? Almost all of the posted links are down. I would be especially interested in the G210M version.
Could you also please tell me which kexts I should use together with the DSDT file? The update to 10.6.5 isn't working yet, right?

Just add some things I came across.

10.6.6 works fine....just make sure to delete sleepenabler.kext first and then run pfix.

Also I don't know if anyone has experienced this. But after a system update, google chrome will start to hang on flash or heavy javascript sites. Reinstalling flash, chrome, deleting the settings doesn't work. This was driving me mad. Finally found the solution. I had to run the nvidia video enabler package again. Why that works I have no clue. But chrome stopped hanging after rebooting.

This has happened twice already (upon updating to 10.6.5 and 10.6.6) so I'm pretty sure they are related. Thanks!

Hi,

I have the same laptop, updating it to 10.6.6, it gives a Kernal panic error. How did you get it to work

Did you disable the sleepenabler.kext before you upgraded? They are not compatible between versions.
