what is necessary to boot the system from the hard drive without the nawcom cd? the kexts you gave me, and the other files in extra folder? (dsdt, boot, etc)

in E/E is present:
- ACPIMonitor.kext (necessary?)
- FakeSMC.kext
- IntelThermal.kext (necessary?)
- PXHCD.kext
- VoodooBattery.kext
- VoodooPS2Controller.kext (from AnV)


anyway, IMHO lnx2mac is a pita, specially with 10.6.6+x86_64, or l701x have unsolved problem... reboot is a random kp roulette in 64bit.


tnx for your help.

Hello theSlug, how did you make work the VoodooPS2Controller in E/E with keyboard and trackpad?
I doesn't work for me.
Cheers.

Just bought myself a Dell XPS 17 with i7-740QM + GT445M partly due to reading this excellent thread ;)

My previous laptop was a Dell Studio 1737 with ATI 3650HD and it was not possible to get the Graphics to function fully so I gave up, sold it and bought the above.

Will post later in the week once the laptop arrives and I've attempted to install SL with the method used in this topic.

Vlad please can you post your Extras folder as well. Your kexts work pretty well for me but the trackpad fails to work after a suspend and I get the occasional kernel panic from the audio.

Thank you.

I´ve installed 10.6.6 but after updating to 10.6.7 from the new macbooks pro 2011 (sandy bridge support) i allways get a [ PCI Configuration Begin]....and nothing happens.

Maby its the nvidia gt 435 that cause this problem, but i dont know it. I used the kext from the 1st post v3 and everything was perfect on 10.6.6.

My Extra.


Thank you. For some reason the mouse and keyboard fail to work and it will not boot unless I add fakesmc.

Any ideas?


Using Chameleon RC5, not on the machine but one of the later builds.
Machine is a L701x I7 with the G435 and 4gb ram.
