This is my first post on InsanelyMac forums.
First of all, thanks to Mammoth and everyone else involved in creating this guide, and other very helpful resources. Without you, I would have given up on my Hac a long time ago.
Second, my problem now:
I have a HP Pavilion g6-2031so that I am trying to install Mac OS X 10.6.3 on, using Mammoth Method. So far, I have created a MIID and a XIID, on a partition each on a usb flash-stick.
The chameleon boot-loader opens up nicely, even though it will only open if I insert the usb-stick in the usb 2.0. slot, not on the usb 3.0. slots.
However, as soon as I start the Mac OS X Installer, I cannot get the mouse track-pad to respond. The keyboard works, but not the mouse. And thus, I get stuck a few steps into the installation, since I can't access the partitioning-tool :/...
Has anyone experienced similar problems? And what is the solution?
By using -x flag and a usb-mouse, I've managed to get further

The DSDT.aml that I am using is pretty much a clean DSDT, extracted from my HP g6 in Windows 7 using Read-Write Everything. DSDT Autopatcher says there is a few errors in it, and the black boot-screen right after Chameleon and right before the Mac OS X Installer mentions quite a few errors.
I can post pictures of these, or copy-paste the Autopatcher errors, if this would help. I have left it out for now, to not bloat my 1st post with what might be unnecessary info.
Thank you for your time, and please point me in the right direction if this is the wrong thread for my question, if you need to know more about my laptop in order to help me, etc.
