@bazzmanz: if you can try to use grsync when copying the files to the USB to make sure that the usb will have an accurate copy of the Lion installer.


Thx Will try this Much appreciated.

@UnderOath777: have you tried using the BIOS file posted?

No, I using BIOS 2 years old(by Juzzi if you know), cuz my motherboard P5Q, and when i Install 10.5.4 on it, but AHCI function is enabled. Maybe i need some BIOS?
When I don't install NVEnabler64.kext, Restart working good, Shutdown won't (freeze and BIOS to default) Sleep mode don't work (cuz video don't working) When i install NVEnabler64.kext, Shutdown and Sleep mode working good (I use Sleeper.kext in Extra-Extentions), but restart won't (freeze and BIOS to default).
I see that is problem with NVEnabler64.kext, cuz in Chameleon GraficsEnabler=Yes , don't work... only NVEnabler64 start my video with QE

Thank you very much for this detailed guide... worked like a charm. There are some issues I cant get around... would be cool if we can discuss them:

1.) After lets say 10 minutes... depending on the amount of use the internet connection dies... The DHCP configuration shows a weird IP in the network settings. And I am not able to connect anylonger. Turning off the connection and restarting does not help... weird -> status says still connected but not to my routers IP... also its not able to find a DNS server. So I have to restart to get it back to work. Could that be a problem with the driver of the lan modul ?

I got to say that I had Snow a couple of years on the same machine without this weird issue...

2.) Any news regarding sleep ? With me this isnt working either. Turning the computer to sleep... kicks it into a koma... means that its not pos to get it back to life... Also the power unit the harddisks and the fans are still working. Just the screens turn off. Anybody tried the sleep enabler kexts?

hmmm...

Apart from that .... I am quite happy... guess we will solve the last issues as well...


Thanks Again Mate...

I have the same mobo as yours, were you able to install it now? I wonder when will Robert make instructions for P5Q?

UPDATE: i tried running the latest stock BIOS from Asus by re-flashing this motherboard with EZFlasher and it turns out that it works out properly too. so no need for any custom BIOS.

will be posting the link on the first page.

Sorry to bother you again...

Anybody has an idea why the network card stops working after a certain time?

The issues with the sleep isnt that bad... but that I have to restart good 6,7 times a day because the connection dies really makes it hard to work with the machine.

@mogio: would you happen to have another PCI card existing? Coz on my setup, I never had such problems with my P5QL-Pro's onboard NIC. have you also tried updating to the latest BIOS from ASUS?

Hello and thanks for the guide!!
But I have a problem. I prepare USB with all, I can install Lion, I see the initial wizard to create the acount, but when finish return to the beginin to select keyboard.
Why is this?

One question in guide, when you say "Replace the OSInstall.mpkg on the USB > System > Installation with the OSInstall.mpkg attached here." Is it in Package directory? Because in USB > System > Installation don't exist OSInstall.mpkg.

Thanks and sorry in my english!
