@mrjanek
will you "support" Asus motherboards in the future or will you stick to Gigabyte?

OMG!!!
Kakewalk just killed my windows ntfs (D:) disk with all my stuff there :blink: (photos, games vids and distrs)
How I got it:
HDDs:
1.SATA ("System" (ntfs with windows 7 installed), "Store" ntfs with all my stuff)
2.IDE ("Lion" hfs, "XP" ntfs)
3. USB-HDD ("Time Machine Backup" hfs, "Kakewalk" hfs)

Started Kakewalk 4.0 in SL (at "Lion" partition), selected Lion app and "Kakewalk" disk for installation. Got error after few minutes. Restarted Kakewalk.app, OK message.
Then Installed Kakewalk to USB-HDD and found out that my "System" ntfs disk is renamed to Kakewalk. hmmm... And "Store" ntfs disk is empty in Finder (although properties show it almost full as it should be)
After that I renamed "Kakewalk" ntfs to "System" again and installed Lion without any problems to "Lion" on top of SL. It works fine.
But after succesful rebooting to Win7 I've realized that my "Store" ntfs disk is mounted as RAW.
What I have to do to get my data back?

I seem there's some mess with the disks structure definition in Kakewalk 4.0 =(
Use it with caution and eject all unneeded HDDs before.


In Windows, use a program called Active UNDELETE. You will be able to get all your stuff back from a delete hard drive.

What if my motherboard is not listed? Could you include a "generic" profile?

Anyone had any luck with the GA EP45-DS3R? Its not on his list but i have the DSDT still so Id think it wouldn't be a problem. I could just remake my Cham stick and go the long route but kake looks sooo much nice :D

You can cross your finger and hope it works. Some of the kernel extensions are specific to the motherboard chipset and integrated devices therefore you may have some trouble. I think you can use his usb and update the specific kext files for your motherboard then it should technically work.

Make sure your bios setting closely resembles http://neighborhosti...OS_settings.pdf
Important ones are: SATA RAID/AHCI Mode: [AHCI], Onboard SATA/IDE Ctrl Mode: [AHCI], ACPI Suspend Type: [S3(STR)], HPET Support: [Enabled], HPET Mode: [64-bit mode]

I got my EX58UD5 up and running with Lion. I did a clean fresh install and it worked fine. Only issue is my AMD 4890 is not getting picked up by the OS. If i set graphics enabler to YES then it is not booting. Hangs with the infamous ACPI timeout. Anyhow I'm super excited.

Edit: FYI...Got my 3d acceleration working by installing the QE_CI_10.7 then enabling GraphicEnabler.

Did you have a 10.6.8 install previously? I've also got a system based on the EX58-UD5 (and a 4890) but I can't even download 10.7 – I get the error message that it cannot be installed on this computer.

Make sure you are using the final GM build 11A511. Did you create GUID 1 partition on the usb? Do you have any other corrupted lion parition on your system?

I'm trying to do a clean install but it refuses to work. I've created the bootable drive with no errors, but when i boot up it scrolls through all of the kexts then simply reboots. I've tried safe mode but it changed nothing. My BIOS is set up correctly, according to the install guide. Any suggestions?

I'm not running the GM build of Lion at all if that's what you're meaning – I have no installations of Lion, just one install of 10.6.8, which is formatted as GUID.

I'm installing it on a laptop and both trackpad and keyboard don't work, i've tried adding voodoops2.kext y /Extra and it doesn't work.

EDIT

Ok booting in 32bit mode made everything work (trackpad, keyboard, sound, battery, gma950) on my hp nc6400.

Almost everything is working but both cores like 10.6.8 :"""((

Hi,
Install went smoothly on my Gigabyte P55-UD2 with an i5-750. However, sound does not work.
And GraphicsEnabler=Yes doesn't work with my Radeon 4890 despite it being listed as compatible on your site, so I'm stuck on 1024x768. Help is appreciated.

Well, I never did figure out how to get Lion to download on my hackintosh, but I was able to use my Mac Pro to download it and then go through the install process with Kakewalk. So far everything is looking pretty good – got it installed, but I didn't have Internet access enabled yet so I'm jumping through some other hoops of my own making.

Hey guys,
I had SL 10.6.8 and I used Kakewalk 4 on my USB thumb drive.
My MB is EP45-UD3L, and I'm also using a PS2 keyboard.
I got my PS2 driver from kexts.com and i just puted the kext files in the Extra and System\Library\Extension folders on the USB drive (that's because I erased my partition and then noticed that it needed the kext :\).
After the install, the keyboard is responsive, but I'm not getting thru the "Connect your keyboard" screen.
What to do? I have access to the partition and the USB from windows (thanks, Macdrive!).

Another thing: Mrjanek is the king.
Thanks guys,
Dvir.
