Hey All,

WOW! This thread is still going strong (haven't checked back since April 2011).
As you can see by my signature, I have a fully working 10.6.7 SL.

My DSDT is 100% (injected gfx also). Just need to upgrade to lion 10.7.3

To save 64 pages of reading, can anyone please direct me to the best method? (I currently have retail lion on usb)

Go for a fresh lion install via usb method rather than upgrade.

single partition on a usb>8gb via disk utility,
restore 10.7.3 base system to the usb(partition)
delete packages link from /System/installation on the restored usb
copy packages folder from mounted 10.7.3 dmg at the place of deleted packages link
Copy following needed Kexts to usb /System/Library/Extentions

*fakesmc.kext
* nullCPUPowermanagenent.kext

copy
1..disk_lable.
2.boot.efi.
3.kernelcache.
4.mach_kernel.
5.MacOSX_Media_Background.png.

from 10.7.3 dmg to root of usb

install chameleon to usb and copy Extra folder with all your working kexts,dsdt,smbios etc, to root of usb ,repair permissions with kext utility

boot from usb to install.


edit-- will need cpus=1 with vanilla kernel, you could use taptun's 10.7.3 lapic fixed kernel to boot normally.

Hi All,

I've read through this thread and many others and whilst I gained a lot of knowledge I'm getting mad at the same time.

I've tried multiple guides using as starting point Mammoth Method and other tutorials and I can't get past first boot of my HP dv7-6b55dx from USB/CD whilst at the same time I've successfully installed 10.7.3 under Virtual Box.

Is this possible at all to get installed 10.7.3 on this laptop?

Probably I'm just missing DSDT.aml but even if I tried with couple of them it didn't work well.

As the system is based on HM65 chipset, maybe it would be better to jump direclty to 10.8?

Please advise.

Below is a list of the most related threads and guides I've tried
http://www.insanelym...=250849&st=1260

and other forums, etc.
http://www.tonymacx8...=329694#p329694
http://www.osx86.net...7-6b55dx-3.html

I've also tried:
http://www.tonymacx8...p?f=170&t=42634
http://tonymacx86.co...p?f=170&t=50017
https://tonymacx86.c...=35536&start=20
https://tonymacx86.c...=34889&p=219522

Whilst I know I'm missing something, probably small but important detail it drives me even more mad as I don't usually have any problems with even playing with Linux kernel sources.

Please help me jumping on the right rails.

Thanks in advance.

Hello, may anyone give me suggestions on how to use Brightness on my dv8 with snow 10.6.8? Brightness is SO LOW and i cannot increase or decrease it!
And is there a schematics for modifying the touch panel so that i can disable the wifi touch button to have it "always on" (i have the annoying problem of auto-switch-off due to interference...no way to go).
Thanks!

Here is What I have done while we all wait for Taptun's patched kernel
Download the 10.7.3 combo update
copy your current 10.7.2 kernel to your desktop
copy your current audio Kext ( patched apple HDA) etc to your desk top
Run the combo update and reboot with flag cpus=1
log into iCloud and face time to make sure they are working, and do not log out
delete the new apple HDA kext and install your previous audio kext copied earlier
delete the mach_kernel from root and replace it with the 10.7.2 mach_kernel (Taptun's patched 10.7.2 kernel renamed mach_kernel)
run kext utility to repair permissions and rebuild cache
reboot as normal and all your 4 cores will be working this time

@ Taptun , thank you so much for all your help !! I wonder if you have any tutorials on how to patch or make our own mach_kernels? I know it might be a difficult task , and some of us are willing to test and learn from the best .. YOU !! :)
