Try using the VoodooPS2 drivers on the disc mate then boot with -f -v to see if its loading the mouse and keyboard up.

I have tried VoodooHDA many times.......but it results in a message saying ' you must restart your computer ......' and every time I try to boot into the OS, the same message appears and gets stuck. Only in safe mode, it works.......But why only in safe mode.................Secondly, I have read about 1000 posts on different forums where some users say that they have the Graphics working......Trying their same method fails.

How did you manage to get that issue?. Seems to me that you didn't wipe the drive as the Drive must be in GPT format.

You need to Boot your Windows OS backup your data and redo the Windows install then Mac.

Please mac sure you used one key recovery before you touched the Drive with mac OSX as that is the only Recovery Software for the Laptop.

The other person asking about the 105 that should work without issues.

finally!! found some bcm4311+SL retail one :)
but, i made some mistake there,
some question need an answer please :)
1. i made mistake to install bios for 64bit-that i download from lenovo site, can i still follow the step?
2. my friend had same laptop, but he install the iatkos S3 (w/o BCM-wifi) he said that :
a. sleep system not works (using default dsdt+(vanilla/qoopz) kernel+NVenabler+AnVal loader)
b. 64bit booting will crush NVenabler
c. (random) kernel panic - when wifi switch on (still intel5100)

will that occur when using your method ? (i'm sure will not, but i just need reference)

3. it's ok to boot using boot132 + usb stick(not the dvd i bougth one)

i think that's all , please help me :hysterical:
very very much thanks for the answer
