Hello all,

after adding npci=0x2000 to my boot arguments i was able to see why my hack hangs after [PCI configuration begin]. It panicked (page fault) with the backtrace containing AppleAHCIPort.kext and its dependencies IOAHCIFamily.kext and IOPCIFamily.kext. The adress at which the fault happened was in IOAHCIFamily's space. I tried to replace all three with know good ones from 10.6.8, still page faults.

My specs:

ASUS Sabertooth X58, Marvell SATA Controller for HDDs, JMicron for DVD (doesn't really work though).
Patched DSDT
ASUS GTX 480
6GB DDR3
Core i7 950 @ stock 3.07

10.6.8 works like a charm, needs only FakeSMC!

I wonder what changed in the kernel that makes a working driver crash. I'm going to play around with my BIOS settings some more.

Hello again,turns out this was due to a faulty DSDT patch and happens only in 64bit mode which I never used before. This happens in SL as well, i just never encountered it because of my arch=i386 bootargs. Lion comes without i386 binaries, so I was forced to use x86_64.
