i Got the usb stick to boot.. Installation stops at:
[PCI Configuration begin] or something like that ;D (in verbose mode)


Unfortunately, I have not found time to write up the guide dealing with the PCI Configuration begin boot freeze problem.......but try putting the following under Kernel flags
-v arch=x86_64 npci=0x2000
in the org.chameleon.Boot.plist of both the USB flash drive installer and of the target OS X Lion HDD volume, as this is the easiest of four possible solutions to the problem for you to try......I hope it works for you.....if not try npci=0x3000.....

Glad to help........ :)

It is going to take some time to complete the guide as I have do it in my very limited spare time within my "real life".......I was able to get Parts A. and B. out quickly because they are based on what I did to install Lion on my OSx86 PC........but people wanting a Lion CD/DVD installer and/or to install to an MBR HDD and/or install Lion to another volume from a running SL system etc. will have to be patient.......

To boot into 64bit mode you need to load AppleNForceATA.imk64bit.kext from /Extra/Extensions/ into the kernel......

So you need to have in /Extra/Extensions/ on your SL 10.6.8 HDD volume:

AppleNForceATA.imk64bit.kext
EvOreboot.kext or OpenHaltRestart.kext
FakeSMC.kext
NullCPUPowerManagement.kext or Disabler.kext

and you need to run the Chameleon 2.0 RC5 installer to install Chameleon on the HDD that SL 10.6.8 is installed on.......

So is OS X SL 10.6.8 installed on its own HDD? Do you have Windows installed on another HDD in your PC?

To boot in 64bit mode and install OS X Lion:

1. I assume you are using my nForceSLBoot132DVD_for_SATA_DVDRW on DVD to boot SL.....?

If so, note that this Boot132DVD is using MeDevil's 32bit mode AppleNForceATA_TEST.kext which does not support more than 3GB RAM, requiring you to boot with maxmem=3072 or 2048 as a Chameleon boot flag.....

You should be aware that the required AppleNForceATA.imk64bit.kext will not support your two SATA DVDRWs........I recommend that you get a PATA (IDE) DVDRW that you jumper-set and connect to your MOBO as Master......the SATA DVDRWs are probably the main cause of your "Still waiting for root device" error problems.....

2. Temporarily remove your Creative Audigy Gamer sound card and your Asus WL-138 G v2 PCI WiFi card from your MOBO.....


Hi Verdant, little update.
I made a bootable cd with bootcdmaker on my macbook: i have selected the kexts you put in the lion support file.
With this cdrom, i was kable to boot SnowLeo!! My cpu is now a quadcore intel xeon!
I am also running in 64 bits mode and my 4go ram is now effective.

So i rushed directly to the mac appstore....
The little {censored} told me that a internet connection is required!!!!!
and he was true, my two cards are unable to connect, Either the wifi or the onboardchip !!!
The onboard chip was working properly before this update.
Ok, i have not unplugged the wifi card as you advised me, nor the audio card (i just forgot). Will do that tomorrow.
The weird thing is that my nic lan is recognized, but stay on yello, unable to resolve an ip address.
The kext i used successfully in 32 bits mode is loaded... I will check with the supplier ;)

I also have no usb storage working. Mouse and keyboard are ok...
So is installed on his own hdd, windows one are unplugged and the sata slot are desactivated in the bios.

To my surprise, I managed to boot using my sata drive... I have not tried to burn with them but the two drives are recognized by system info and flagged as write capable...

So, i'll not dlde lion tonight !!!

I will PM you the 10.6.7 Roll back kexts and the patched IOPCIFamily.kext......if neither of these possible fixes work, then you have to try a DSDT patch......

Glad to help and that you found the guide detailed enough in terms of what to do step by step....... :D

It would be very helpful for me in keeping Part A. up to date, if you could please let me know what works or does not work for you when you attempt to purchase and download Lion from the App Store.....

It would also be good to see your system details in your signature......I am assuming you have an nForce chipset + Intel CPU MOBO......?

Cheers
verdant


Dear Verdant,

You're right. Should have thought it myself.

First my config.

Asus P5N e SLI Mobo with Core 2 Duo E2220, 6 gb corsair memory
Bios : 1406 with Nforce 650
Gainward Nvidia9500 GT 1 GB
3 IDE HDD + 2 SATA
pionneer DVD RW on IDE
Edited DSDT file to avoid the CMOS reset problem (attached)
Scanner Epson V600 photo
Printer Brother hl 1030 (using the hl1460 driver) with a network adapter Axis Office Basic

What's working:

System OK: No crash after 4 days (pretty intensive use)
Memory: SL 10.6.7 was only working with 2 x 1GB of memory. Lion is working fine with 6 Gb (2 x 1 Gb + 2 x 2 Gb)
Graphics : 1920x1200x32 Enabled through Chameleon and org.chameleon.boot.plist (attached)
(27' Hanns-G monitor on HDMI) (translucent menu bar)
Network: fully functional on MOBO
Sound: working with VoodooHDA 0.2.62. Sound level is correct (was low on SL). Input level from MIC and Line In are correct.
USB: functional
Scanner : functional
Netwrok printer: functional
Belkin BT dongle F8T017 functional OOB
Shutdown: functional (I had to use an old EvoReboot to make it work)
All the softwares I have installed so far are working. (Aperture, Office 2008, Photoshop Elements 9, Ilife 11)


Not tested
Ieee1394
Wifi : no wifi card as my house is wired in every room.

What's not working:
Sleep : was not working either on SL. Not a major issue.
Restart: was working on SL but not on Lion. A bit more a concern but that's life. Unless you have a solution.

I hope this is exhaustive enough.


Thanks again for sharing and your great work.

Philby

BTW, How can I buy Lion on Appstore as I am told it's already installed? Do I have to start install again from SL?
I have used you're USB stick method.

Glad you appreciate my efforts on writing this mammoth guide........although some will consider me slow in completing the guide........but I have to do it when I have some spare time as it is only a hobby and not my "real life".......

Yes the detail you have provided is both helpful and interesting........ ;)

Sleep is a continuing issue on most nForce chipset + Intel CPU MOBOs......see iLeopod's very good work on his 680i chipset MOBO DSDT.aml file here.....

Is the EvoReboot kext that you are using in /Extra/Extensions/ fully 64bit capable and have you reset its ownership (root:wheel or 0:0) and permissions (755)......?

I am at present is trying to re-download OS X Lion having already purchased and downloaded it once from the App Store.........none of the reported methods involving pressing the Alt/Option before logging onto the App Store have worked for me.......

It could be that the App Store app is able to detect a copy of the Lion Installer app on any HDD and HDD volume connected to the MOBO, rather than just on the booted OS X Lion HDD volume , or on the booted OS X Snow Leopard HDD volume.......

Hi There,
Posting from my DellIntosh :wacko:

Verdant, as you suggested, I removed the WiFi card and the audio card. I also made a new boot CD with the bare minim Preboot DMG (your Lion support file v1 are on the hardrive) and then I rebooted: Magic, I have the network.

Now I have to fix the "Your computer canno't be verified" on the AppStore, but the good news is when I click Purchase Lion, I am invited to enter my credentials... so my MacPro3,1 is detected :blink:

Thanks !!!

Yes......this certainly appears to be a problem area for many...........

Another problem area that I am facing at present is trying to re-download OS X Lion having already purchased and downloaded it once from the App Store.........none of the reported methods involving pressing the Alt/Option before logging onto the App Store have worked for me.......it could be that OS X is able to detect a copy of the Lion Installer app on any HDD connected to the MOBO, rather than just on the booted OS X Lion HDD volume , or on the booted OS X Snow Leopard HDD volume.......

Hi Verdant,

When I add or remove a kext, I always run Kext utility before rebooting. I have downloaded the last version Lion compatible. This is what I have always done. Isn't it enough? Do I have to go through the command line to get the permissions re-instated?

But I realize today a strange thing : the kexts stored in E/E were not reported in the system report/software/extentions. So I moved them in S/L/E. This time they are listed. I retried the different configuration the Evoreboot from you package, OpenHaltReboot 64 bits. I even tried a DSDT for my MOBO proposed by Maldon.


The shutdown works. But not the restart neither the sleep.

Based on what you said, I will restore SL 10.6.6, disconnect the Lion disc from the Mobo and retry to get it.
I'll keep you posted.

Philippe

I retried the different configuration the Evoreboot from you package, OpenHaltReboot 64 bits. I even tried a DSDT for my MOBO proposed by Maldon.


The shutdown works. But not the restart neither the sleep.

Based on what you said, I will restore SL 10.6.6, disconnect the Lion disc from the Mobo and retry to get it.
I'll keep you posted.

I always set ownership and permissions manually via Terminal and then clear com.apple.kext.caches/Startup because I then know exactly what has been done.....
sudo chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions
 sudo chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions
 sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions
 exit

If you go to Terminal and type
kextstat
and look at the output:

you wil see what kexts have been loaded into the kernel.........System Information >>>> Software >>>> Extensions only lists what is in /S/L/E/ as OS X on real Macs does not require / use Chameleon and /E/E/......

Sleep has never worked for me in OS X since 10.5.6 and even in 10.5.6, not after overclocking my CPU and/or RAM......

Hi verdant.

Thank you again for a brilliant guide. Followed all your steps and modified a few of them to make the USB installer method work.

I'm having problems now, however. I'm unable to boot in 64 bit mode (regular or safe mode). I get the "still waiting for root device" error.
I'm using the nforceATA 64 bit kext from your lion support files v 1.0

I can boot into 32-bit safe mode and that is all at the moment. The 64 bit nforceATA kext from your lion support files v 1.0 worked flawlessly in snow leopard. I've tried moving it from /E/E to /S/L/E and also tried having it in both locations. No joy. I also reinstalled the chameleon bootloader and that didn't help at all.

I've also had to roll back to FakeSMC v2.5 kext, as the new one caused a KP on boot.

You will need to remind me of your system details......remember that the imk 64bit AppleNForceATA.kext does not support SATA DVDRWs......

Also what modifications to the USB installer procedure did you make, so that I understand what the difference in method may result in......

No problem. I'm using a nforce 780i 3-way SLI board with an intel Q9300. 4 GB of RAM and a GTX260 graphics card. I don't have any optical drives installed. 32 bit normal mode does boot (extremely slow, however. takes almost 4 minutes)

Didn't modify much. Placed nforceATAimk in /S/L/E as well as /E/E on the usb drive and used FakeSMC v2.5 rather than the one from your support files.

When I ran the installer, i installed Lion over top of Snow Leopard (as I've purchased a few applications since running SL and I didn't want to have to go through the process of re-downloading/re-installing them.

However, if you think that is the problem, I did set up a time machine backup so I can format and reinstall lion on a clean drive if that's totally necessary.

boot hangs (both in safe mode and normal) on nstat_lookup_entry failed: 2 , then resumes minutes later.
