@disarmed, I wonder how you managed to get the spinning wheel appear. As far as I remember, both on Lion DP4 and 10.6.8, OS X gets stuck at PCI Begin but it goes on booting anyway. I suggest you check your files please. Try with the latest files I'd shared and let us know the result. If you come to the conclusion that you were using different or earlier versions of the files then it might help us narrow down the problem. If you are using different files or settings then I'd shared please tell us about it.

If you are having EBIOS Read error, boot with -v. Actually you should boot with -v and let us know the exact message.

On 10.7 GM (Lion).
Chameleon RC5 r1083.
Same files in Extra and E/E. Using LegacyAppleHDA (E/E), AppleHDA (S/L/E) & GenericBrightness (S/L/E).
Added AppleRTL8169.kext (from DP1) to IONetworkingFamiliy.kext to make Ethernet work.
What is not working anymore: Card Reader (VoodooSDHC) & Battery (AppleACPIBatteryManager) and Brightness.
Same problems with the "PCI Begin" error and no spinning wheel.
The rest is fine and working as before (including sleep & wake up).

Any idea about the card reader, the battery and the brightness?


Edit: Brightness actually works! :P

ok, just installed Lion GM. I think i forgot to put some files in the E/E folder in my usb installer that's why I got the spinning wheel.

but, I can't get pass thru the setup assistant because of keyboard not detected. I've searched for the info.plist in System/Library/CoreServices/setup assistant.app to modify but when I open the info.plist, it's empty (0kb and nothing in it).

I'll borrow my friend's usb keyboard after work.

Which post? Your link doesn't work...
:)

Anyways, brightness actually works. I think the problem was caused by some "kext" manipulations I did when I tried to activate the battery...

I tried adding that key to the kernel flag but it affects the gpu performance. Does it work on Lion?

I know this thread is for the hp machines but there is lots of useful info for osx in general but just have to say thanks JBraddock, i used part of the atheros dsdt you posted (my asus had the ARPT entry already)on my asus m50vm which comes with the ar9280 card and it's working perfectly. I also have lion installed on the same drive and it connected for the first time using the original kext as well. no problems with app store on both systems!!

DSDT for the graphics was from this thread too, I just changed the ram size and name to suit the 9600 gs c/w 1024

Thanks again for all your work

m50vm, c2d p9400 2.53mhz, 9600 gs (dsdt injected, graphics enabler didn't work) using voodoohda ver. 2.56 (only working version for my alc663) can't test sleep because it's on my e-sata and needs a usb port for power.

Hi JBraddock, Your's Lion show battery, if battery not work graphics not good. I used kext of 10.6.7, IOPCIfamily.kext and AppleACPIPlatform.kext.

Hi JBraddock!

I tried to use the files in your 'Extra' folder but I still got the video playback lag at fullscreen. Btw, I'm currently using Chameleon 2.0 RC5-r1083.

Also, if it's not much of a trouble to you, could you please check my ioregdump & my dsdt.

Thanks!

The DSDT file is not identical to the one I'd shared. You don't have C-States and SBUS is not loaded. Please use the one attached. Remove HDEF device if you use VoodooHDA. BTW, please install brightness kext to System/Library/Extensions.

Also, friends, if you are using AppleHDA, please use the following DSDT code, which will remove some of the error messages on Console and provide a faster boot time.
Device (HDEF)            {                Name (_ADR, 0x001B0000)                Method (_DSM, 4, NotSerialized)                {                    Store (Package (0x0C)                        {                            "layout-id",                             Buffer (0x04)                            {                                0x0C, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00                            },                             "MaximumBootBeepVolume",                             Buffer (One)                            {                                0x6B                            },                             "AFGLowPowerState",                             Buffer (0x04)                            {                                0x03, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00                            },                             "CodecAddressMask",                             Buffer (One)                            {                                0x01                            },                             "PinConfigurations",                             Buffer (Zero) {},                             "platformFamily",                             Buffer (One)                            {                                0x00                            }                        }, Local0)                    DTGP (Arg0, Arg1, Arg2, Arg3, RefOf (Local0))                    Return (Local0)                }            }
I don't know if I shared this before but please also use the attached AppleHDA of 10.6.2. You don't need LegacyHDA or HDAEnabler in Extra folder. Remove them if you are using one. This kext also comes with noise cancellation for internal mic and it works great. You could also use the same combination on Lion as well.

I described here. Also this is important for our chipset.

Make sure that you follow the new Lion topic as I'll start sharing new information soon.
