Well, its installing now, the errors seemed to be linked to doing the process from within Lion DP3. i reinstalled SL and am installing now, I'll update on my progress.
By the way, I can't post from my iPad but I can from the iPhone.

oh that'd be nice.
also tried nvenabler and when booting with -v i see it recognized the card correctly but the systems seems to ignore it.
gfxinfo shows 3MB vram :P


Maybe you can find a solution here http://www.insanelym...howtopic=256103 , no 8800gts mentioned there yet, but other 8xxx cards, one solution could possibly work for you.

Lion DP4 Working for me...

Had Problems with my graphics card (8800GTS)
Solution that worked for me: Used Chameleon RC5 r982.
Added GraphicsEnabler key to boot.plist
Now getting full resolution 1680 x 1050

Only thing thats not working for me is Sleep..



Asus P5WDH Deluxe

I have successful results. It boots from USB, all I had to do is replace all the ATI kexts from Base System with older ones from DP3. No more white background with beach ball.
Let's see what happens.

Here is a little guide on how I got it working:

1. Get the dmg from the usual sources.
2. Mount the dmg
3. Show all hidden files in Finder (this can be done with an app, search on google "show files" or here on insanelymac)
4. Mount BaseSystem
5. Go to Disk Utility
6. Partition your 8 gb USB drive with GPT partition table, one partition
7. Restore BaseSystem.dmg on your USB drive
8. Copy mach_kernel from Lion DMG to root of USB
9. Copy from the parent dmg the Packages folder over USB drive /System/Installation/ (you should delete the alias/shortcut there)
10. Install to your USB drive Chameleon, your working Extra folder and dsdt.aml file
12. Install FakeSMC in USB drive /System/Library/Extensions (using Kext Wizard)
13. Reboot and Install wait for the installer to finish
14. Boot in Snow Leopard and install Chameleon, the Extra folder and dsdt.aml to your Lion partition
15. Boot in Lion and enjoy.

I was inspired by this method: http://www.insanelym...howtopic=256729
and credits go to MaLd0n

Please note that I used a spare hard drive partitioned with GPT.
The sistem works except there are some glitches when going to GUI, there are sound issues with ALC889a and sleep does not work at all and also resets CMOS.

Otherwise the system feels more solid and it is more polished.
With this build Apple droped the intro video, they also droped the legacy wallpapers.

Hope you will find this usefull,
Cheers



This one worked for me on my GA P55M UD2 with ati5770 card, have everything except sound and sleep at this point, will dig more to get that working too.


EDIT: EVERYTHING is working!, sound, and sleep (not tested alot thou)

Hi folks,

I try to install dp4 or dp3.
I can boot on my usb stick but after select language installation it only allows me to restore via timemachine. I can't make a fresh install.
If someone can help me.

Hey,

Got DP4 running on a Dell Latitude D430 using clone method (install on a mbp, then use superduper to clone to a dmg, then on the D430 running SL, clone to the Lion partition, use EDP from www.osxlatitude.com and wolla)

However.. i have one problem.

My screen is really dark, even when i turn up brightness to 100% its still very dark.. seeing that it turns down brightness durring boot straith after loading fakesmc.. so i guess its some new power function??!

Anyone else have that problem or know of a solution ?

Same here with GA P55M UD2 with Nvidia GTS 250.

Please, can you tell me if you have a CMOS reset after sleep? I solved it with other post we created in the Post Installation section of the forum.

Thanks.

Did you edit you Boot.plist ?


Sleep now working.. Added custom DSDT file using DSDT Auto patcher and removed NullCPUManagement.kext from Extra folder.

For your 8800GTS, did you try NVEnabler64? (Don't know if the GF7xxx /NVDAResman7xxx kexts are needed now)

Installed DP 4 now, using my DSDT from DP 3, had deleted AppleIntelCPUPowermanagement.kext ind DP 3, i think that was the reason for sleep not working, left it in S/L/E now in DP 4 and sleep now works too.

Yes, but a quick working solution is to replace Lion AppleRTC with Snow Leopard version. Voila.

You need to prepare the Packages directory, search on the forum, there is many tutorials for that.
