I installed Lion on my GA-G31M-ES2L v1, all is ok, but i don't have sound, with yours kext or other, in 64 bit.

Any idea ?


Try to use the sound kexts from Snow Leopard. Did you manage to get sleep working on rev 1 mobo?

The sound driver isn't compatible with 64-bit afaik. I tried everything I could. I was only able to make it work by booting with arch=i386 in the kernel flags.

[edit] mine is a rev 2.3

Here you go, digital audio, and everything works great, on Lion 64 bit or 32 bit. At least for a rev 1.1 board.

Here are the kexts
Extensions instalar em S/L/E

Extra

It does not really seem you know what you are doing:

1. you placed the ALC662.kext into BOTH folders, E/E AND S/L/E. What is it there for to begin with? The sound chip in the GA-G31M-ES2L rev. 1.x is ALC883 !!

2. fakesmc and OpenHaltRestart you have put into S-L-E, which is very unusual. I have NEVER seen anybody do this. If they don't work for you in E/E you don't have Chameleon installed correctly.

3. What's the purpose of the NVEnabler.kext in regards to the GA-G31M-ES2L's Intel GMA 3100 graphics? Absolutely nothing ...

Please elaborate, test, and (HIGHLY recommended!) correct your confused upload.
Thanks.

How do you do it ?. What do you use ? kexts extension etc.... I have this board and I believe it was rev1.0 but i could not get it to boot into Lion, it keep rebooting. I use the USB method by the way.

I've tried this board, It boots into the installation.
But then says "Mac OS X can't be installed on this computer"

I've tried patching the OSInstall.mpkg file and then it fails extracting essentials.pkg

Anyone know how to fix this?
Thanks guys ;)

I'm attaching the only package that worked for me. It's for this motherboard's rev 2 (mine is 2.3). You need to boot into 32bit mode since the driver inside isn't 64-bit. (I'd love if someone could make a 64-bit version).

http://www.kexts.com..._audio.dmg.html

Add arch=i386 to your boot.plist's kernel flags in Extra to make it work.

<key>Kernel Flags</key>
	<string>npci=0x2000 arch=i386</string>

Thanks you, beatoven, I have tried boot into 32bit mode but everything frozen except for the mouse, I can move the cursor around and click on anything but nothing happen.

OK, my board is almost the same as JoQ's motherboard, see my sig. below. I want to try out Lion, but have some questions.

I have the following HD setup:

1) 80GB SATA HD - Boot OS X & 2nd emergency OS X

2) 160GB SATA HD - Ubuntu Studio

3) 250GB ATA HD - Win XP & Data

I can delete the Ubuntu HD and install Lion on it if it will make things run easier. I can also load a clean version of Snow Leopard on it, to upgrade. I have Chameleon on the OS X HD, standard version installed by Lifehacker method, never upgraded. My motherboard version has Realtek LAN not Atheros. Also note I am using and iMic for sound, I didn't figure out the kexts for it.


TIA

@macusers I sent you a PM about your issue but I guess you already know the things I said since you're an "InsanelyMac Geek" and I'm just a "Protégé".

@natgab tonymac's method is what I'd use to upgrade from SnowLeo to Lion.

I will give tony's method a try, currently I just do a fresh install, I got everything to work fine except for audio, i think I have ALC883 audio chipset. Thanks again.

You're welcome. Well the ALC883 package in my previous post is the only one that ever worked for me since the Snow Leopard days and it still works, although only in 32-bit mode. Let me know if you have any luck on getting sound in 64bit.

[edit] I myself didn't use tonymac's method. I did a clean Lion GM install using the first stickied guide.

---Will tonymac's method work with a torrented version? I want to wait and buy the USB version not just get a serial number. I will have to wait on this method otherwise untill I get the USB, I will also look into using Kakewalk since it is made for Gigabyte motherboards for now.

thanks

Sorry I haven't try tony's method just yet, but i can tell you that Kakewalk works fine for me except for audio in 64bit mode, I manage to get audio in 32bit mode though.

Cool. I downloaded Kakewalk and couldn't get the Lion onto the USB installer. I already posted the question in the Kakewalk thread. Hopefully will get it working in a bit.

UPDATE: I got Lion to install using Kakewalk method. Please see link below for details, all my specs are in my signature:

Did you follow instruction on the include pdf that came with the Kakewalk ?. USB has be formatted as "GUID Partition Table" first.

It should work fine if you're upgrading from snow leopard. Not that I've tried but the system won't know if it's the torrented or the appstore installer that you're launching.

Kakewalk looks interesting but doesn't have G31M-ES2L afaik.
I might try it soon though.

You might want to give Kakewalk a try if you don't get tonymac's method to work. Your motherboard is just a slightly older version than mine. I think the chipsets are nearly identical. Just choose Gigabyte G41M-ES2L as your motherboard, it should work fine. When I was installing Snow Leopard, your motherboard worked fine for others using the Lifehacker & Stellarola's Magic EP45UD3P method that I used to install.

Good Luck!
