I got Lion running on my Dell Inspiron 530 using:

  • Chameleon 2 RC5 rev. 760<
  • Kext Wizard
  • FakeSMC.kext 3.1.0
  • IOATAFamily.kext
  • VoodooHDA.kext 2.7.2
I am very interested in the new Clover EFI Bootloader Project over at projectosx.com

Guide:

1 - Mount your Lion image
3 - Restore “BaseSystem.dmg” (hidden file) from install disk to a USB drive
4 - Remove “Packages” alias from System/Installation on the USB drive
5 - Copy /Packages from 10.7 image to /System/Installation in external USB drive
6 - Install the latest Chameleon RC5 rev. to the USB drive: http://www.insanelym...howtopic=225766
7 - Navigate to System/Library/CoreServices folder on the USB drive and delete PlatformSupport.plist
8 - Copy FakeSMC.kext and IOATAFamily.kext to System/Library/Extensions
9 - Repair permissions: http://www.insanelym...howtopic=253395
10 - Put your DSDT.aml and com.apple.Boot.plist in /Extra
11 - You may wan't to add some of these to your plist
<key>GenerateCStates</key>
<string>Yes</string>
<key>GeneratePStates</key>
<string>Yes</string>

<key>UseKernelCache</key>
<string>Yes</string>

<key>GraphicsEnabler</key>
<string>Yes</string>
12 - Test and troubleshoot

Please let me know if you get Lion working, if I missed something, or if you've found a better way.

Can you post a DSDT with sleep working?

This is the DSDT I got to work with my Snow Leopard.
Hitting the Power Button puts the rig to sleep (display off, fans off, USB devices off, power light flashes). Press any key to wake-up (within 2 seconds).

On wake, the only item that does not resume is sound. In the logs I see Assertions from the patched AppleHDA kext. I have tried many different sound drivers put nothing works after sleep (some even KP on boot).

I am on 10.6.7. I have not updated to 10.6.8 yet (but should be OK I believe). Will update to 10.6.8 when Lion releases and then buy Lion through App Store.

Cheezmen,
Did you do something special to get Sleep to work. I used the same DSDT and it didn't work. I wonder if I have something extra that breaks the sleep.

Got pretty far, but now I'm stuck at still waiting for root device... Got tired of trying things to get it to work so I'll let it rest for now and hope someone else experiences the same problem and got a fix :(

Okay nevermind that, putting the HDD at SATA-0 helped a lot. Next up: stuck at DSMOS has arrived..

Hmm seems like I'm on a roll, booted, don't have internet access and gotta fix my video (nVidia GT430)

I am getting nowhere fast with this. Following OP's instructions, I first got an error message the mach_kernel was missing. After adding that to the install drive, I boot up to the utilities page and on clicking restore/install I get an error message:

This copy of the Install Mac OS X Lion application is damaged.

and that's the end of the show. I've tried a couple of times with no good results. Mostly, the usb drive prevents the Dell from completing POST.

I used Kakewalk from my existing snow installation to 'burn' the install files onto a spare partition, and then booted from that using chameleon.

I was then able to install without issues from that partition, and i applied my kexts.

The only kexts that are NECESSARY are one for audio, fakesmc (or like), and one for data (if you do not use DSDT injection)

I'll post up my kexts tomorrow

Hmm. It seems to be Chameleon that is causing the boot freezes. Tried several versions but do not get past the blue sliding bar on inital POST where it freezes halfway.

I am glad it helped :P

Does your audio work after waking up from sleep ?
I still cannot that to work. I am using some patched Apple HDA.kext from far back in time.
Care to share your audio kext ?

Just for interest, regarding the SATA, do you use IDE or RAID mode in the BIOS setup ?
Care to share you SATA plist ?

I use voodooHDA now because of the no sound after sleep issue.

I attached my legacy kext( combined all the patches i use) for your benefit to tinker with.
I use RAID in bios, but not really raid

EDIT: I modified (well copy and paste) a VoodooHDA to give 4 (3back+1front) stereo channels out and 2 (2 Back 0 front) stereo in. Does anyone know how to fix the front panel mic? It works fine with regular voodoohda, but that only has 2 out and 2 in

Ok so I made a kext which has both frontpanel ports working, and read mic + 3/4 line outs.

The grey line out doesnt work (AFAIK, maybe my physical port is damaged) and there is no blue lineout rear option in settings as it broke front mic (and im sceptical as to whether it worked.)

I'll post up the kext tomorrow, but itd be best if we could get autoswitch working

Oh, i totally forgot about this threqad :\


Here is a VoodooHDA.kext With Working 8 channel output (10 including headphone autoswitch)
The inputs i cant test aswell, but i found that plugging a mic into either front or back port will play it through both outputs anyway...

Maybe somebody can improve it?

I think if you have hdmi audio you'll have to add a hdmi device in voodoohda. Im not too sure how, but i think there is info on pr0ject0sx

Created the boot stick as per instructions and booted verbose.
No issues with any kext, but when it gets to the /Extra/dsdt.aml file it bombs out.

(last line hard to read, just says FADT: Using custom DSDT! )

It does not hang, but restarts immediately. I'm using the dsdt.aml from my snow leopard that had always worked (this was generated by the snow leopard install, Snowleopard Universal 3.5).

I'm not sure where to go from here, open to any suggestions...

I did try MacNB's version, but same result.
