ssz1370 the 10.6.3 Combo Update is half a OS hence why you could be having this issue you have been having. You need a Retail copy I.E bought from apple store.

puspem you need the bios i had made for the Whitelist to be removed so you can change your wifi as 5100gn from Intel is not supported.
If you have a 64 bit os becareful with BIOS update as it is known by lenovo that 64bit Bios flashes normally bricks mobo (warning)

as for the rest all will work. I have a new DSDT in the works currently testing atm and a USB image in the works to for booting from.

thanks for quick reply,
but i managed to install the 2.53 bios from lenovo site, and it works normally,
so if i replaced the 5100 with 4311 will bring bricks result? and the only way is to flash the bios isn't it? :)

No if you swap your Intel 5100AGN to broadcom it will not boot past BIOS due to the whitelist with the Error Unaurthorized, you need to use the bios on the first page to remove that whitelist to enable you to use a broadcom Wifi Card.

Just make sure you use the x64 version for 64bit OS and x32 for 32bit OS.

I have had e-mails from people i have bricked my laptop and they have used the wrong file for the OS.

Yep thats correct. Just download mine and Update over the top. Make sure you make a crysisrecovery bios flash pen to be on the save side.

puspem my Webcam works OTB, so yours should do just run ichat to test it or photobooth. As for the CMOS Reset i shell be Making a New Boot-132 CD just for the G550 with Nvidia 210M in for everyone on. Just need to get some free time to make the installer and the Readme file.

Dual booting with Windows time issue is simply fixed using Windows NTP.

Just keep trying to make clean install from your latest bootcd(18june) it can't load my trackpad. When installer done, I checked out that appleps2controller was nowhere and already replaced by applekeyHID + applemouse HID.
When I tried to remove and replace with voodoops2 kernel panic occur several times on reboot. Altough success on boot, keyboard just not works. any idea to resolve this?

You need to use the VoodooPS2 Controller bud!

If you get a Kernel Panic Remove AppleACPIPS2Nub.kext from the extra's folder and then move VoodooPS2 to your /S/L/E (System/Library/Extensions) using Kexthelp7b

hi Hacktrix2006, very2 much thanks that i can make clean install up to 10.6.4
i use retail 10.6.3 - family pack
here my step to get neat installation (single boot- after patch the bios of course):
(you can remove this thread if it useless :D )
1. boot with lenovo G550 cd run with -f -v
2. install the OSX (using mouse to help :D )
3. install chameleon 2 RC4 V3 - reboot
4. boot to safe mode then copy extra folder from the preboot dmg - combined by extra folder itself
5. copy my 105M kext + PM45 dsdt
6. install the bootloader RC5 from the cd and remove AppleHDA kext
7. install voodooHDA kext with kext helper
8. install trackpad to both extra & S/L/E folders(for this will be use kext helper)
9. install pfix + lspci then repair permission using kext utiliy => reboot
10.in this state, my cpus temperature read as 80 to 90 degrees ;)
11. reboot in safe mode, i update => 10.6.4 then remove AppleHDA => reboot again
12. reboot in -f -v, completed my installation wtih 60 degress normally(add lizard : correct cpu clock+fsb) :D


still... cant get Lenovo EasyCamera get works, even if i uses Camtwist trick :)

I succed to install snow leopard and all works perfectly but when the computer starts and after I select the leopard partition displays the following message(I have attached a photo).After I press any key system is loaded and everything is ok.which may be the problem?I mention that I copied only the files from the preboot.dmg to extra folder of snow leopard partition and I replaced the dsdt.aml with version for my video card(nvidia 210m).should copy all folder from the extra folder of cd boot including preboot.dmg?sorry for my English!

Here's a list of Kexts from Preboot:
AirPortEnabler.kext
	   AppleACPIPS2Nub.kext
	   AppleACPIThermal.kext
	   ApplePS2Controller.kext
	   fakesmc.kext
	   IOAHCIBlockStorageInjector.kext
	   IOATAFamily.kext
	   IONetworkingFamily.kext
	   LegacyAppleAHCIPort.kext
	   LegacyAppleIntelPIIXATA.kext
	   LegacyIOAHCIBlockStorage.kext
	   LegacyJMicronATA.kext
	   NVEnabler.kext
	   PlatformUUID.kext
	   VoodooBattery.kext
	   VoodooHDA.kext
	   VoodooSDHC.kext

Now i have couple of questions:
0. Which of those kexts should work from Extra and which ones from S/L/E?
1. If i run IOATAFamily or IONetworkingFamily from Extra, do they override the ones in S/L/E?
2. Which of the Kexts in S/L/E have been violently killed by 10.6.3 or 10.6.4 Software Updates?
3. I guess with the latest Chameleon PlatformUUID can be safely removed because it's irrelevant?
4. Are the SATA disks really orange without IOAHCIBlockStorageInjector?
5. Is NVEnabler still necessary with the DSDT's for 105M and 210M?
6. Does X4500 supports QE/CI, or i'm asking too much?


Thanks in advance. :rolleyes:

Ok all but Voodoo kexts will work via /Extra on hard disc. the Voodoo kexts need to be in /S/L/E.

Now i'd remove the PS2 controller and replace with voodooPS2 kext.

As for NVenabler If you have a 210M use thge dsdt for 210M and remove NVenabler if you have 105M use enabler if you have X4500 from intel that will work without NVenabler but there is no QE/CI support for that.

As for orange disks, Some ICH9M's do have that problem hence why the kext for that was included.

10.6.4 update before rebooting remove applehda.kext and thats it.
