Would it be possible to get detailed instructions how to install Lion on N5110 please?


Or at least, any kind of help is welcome because I never installed OS X on PC before and I have the same Notebook as you :unsure: (Dell Inspiron N5110 i7 Sandy Bridge, 8GB DDR3 RAM)

Thank you.

have you tried the option GraphicsEnabler=Yes in your chameleon boot file? also, do you have QE/CI with your built-in graphics?

well , i followed this guide to install it
http://www.insanelym...p...=262430&hl=
then , put the dsdt made by MaLd0n in the extra folder and put the nullintelcpu.kext in the extensions folder to avoid kernel panic and put this string in the boot plist file in the extra folder

<key>device-properties</key>
<string>600000000100000001000000540000000100000002010c00d041030a000000000101060000027fff04001e00
00004100410050004c002c006f0073002d0069006e0066006f0000001800000030490111111108000001f01f01000000
10070000</string>
<key>DSDT</key>
<string>DSDT.aml</string>

and install it and then boot it with the lion usb and install the drivers in this guide

Ok, here where i came to:

Device (PEG0)
{
Name (_ADR, 0x00010000)
Method (_PRT, 0, NotSerialized)
{
If (PICM)
{
Return (AR01 ())
}
Return (PR01 ())
}
Device (PEGP)
{
Name (_ADR, 0xFFFF)
Method (_DSM, 4, NotSerialized)
{
Store (Package (0x1E)
{
"@0,AAPL,boot-display",
Buffer (One) {},
"@0,built-in",
Buffer (One) {},
"@0,compatible",
Buffer (0x0B)
{
"NVDA,NVMac"
},
"@0,device_type",
Buffer (0x08)
{
"display"
},
"@0,name",
Buffer (0x0F)
{
"NVDA,Display-A"
},
"@0,use-backlight-blanking",
Buffer (One) {},
"@1,can-hot-plug",
Buffer (One) {},
"@1,compatible",
Buffer (0x0B)
{
"NVDA,NVMac"
},
"@1,device_type",
Buffer (0x08)
{
"display"
},
"@1,name",
Buffer (0x0F)
{
"NVDA,Display-B"
},
"NVCAP",
Buffer (0x18)
{
/* 0000 */ 0x05, 0x01, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x01, 0x00,
/* 0008 */ 0x06, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x01, 0x0B,
/* 0010 */ 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00
},
"VRAM,totalsize",
Buffer (0x04)
{
0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x40
},
"device_type",
Buffer (0x0D)
{
"NVDA,GeForce"
},
"model",
Buffer (0x17)
{
"nVidia GeForce GT 525M"
},
"rom-revision",
Buffer (0x05)
{
"3313"
}
}, Local0)
DTGP (Arg0, Arg1, Arg2, Arg3, RefOf (Local0))
Return (Local0)
}
}
}
So the cars now seen in system info, but it cant be seen by OpenGL Extension Viewer for example, or other programs, we need to to patch this code, so it would be connected to laptop internal display., so it would work, think..
like i said here http://www.insanelym...t=#entry1739776
-------------------------------------UPDATE------------------------
So i've found some workouts in internet, maybe they'll work:
1. Deleting Intel HD Graphics Extensions
2. AppleIntelGraphicsGA.plugin and AppleIntelHDGADriver.plugin, changing value Gen575 to some other.
3. AppleGraphicsControl.kext changing Gen575 to some other numbers.
4. AppleUpstreamUserClient.kext by deleting it, but as system loads we can see blue screen and cursor.
That would be nice if anyone could try out this workouts.
P.S. Found this workouts on forums, they were written for 10.6.5 Snow Leo
------------------------Update 2--------------------
like there for HD 3000, so we can inject uor NVIDIA card, i think..I cant try now this all cause i had to install back Win7....

We can try out using DSDT inject http://www.tonymacx8...hp?f=15&t=26370
like there for HD 3000, so we can inject uor NVIDIA card, i think..I cant try now this all cause i had to install back Win7....



well , I put this patch in the dsdt file and it worked , and the card worked and like you said , it can't be seen by the OpenGL Extension Viewer program , so, i deleted all the intel hd graphics extensions , but , nothing changed.
