Sulake, yes I did copy the file and the extra folder.
Could you please upload your chameleon boot file (found in the root of your drive ;) )
org.chameleon.Boot.plist

Also: Have you installed the Chameleon pref pane? Could you please screenshot every tab so I can see if I have the same ;)

Ok, so I've tried to use the old bootloader.

Now it says Hibernate image is too old, use ForceWake=y to override and it still doesnt work..

Also please upload you mach kernel and mach kernel atom please?? =D

EDIT: Also do oyu have the file com.apple.Boot.plist in your root?
EDIT2: Ok, so I've made an /Extra folder, and it gives me a "dont park"-symbol any ideas?

In verbose it gives me: No interval found for / using 8000000
still waiting foor root device

and then it hangs.
Any ideas?

Yep, upgraded to 10.7.2 now and every things working, except for the sound, where are the kexts for 10.7.2?

Sulake, is your system 10.7.2?

And where do I need to install them /E/E or /S/L/E ?

Hi Guys,

i ve been searching for a while now to get my Asus 1201nl with 3GB to boot the Lion Installation. I've found in this thread that people ending up at a reboot with the message: USB Legacy OFF, like me should read this Prasys Proof of Concept Lion on netbook. Unfortunately i cannot open this page, every time i go to his blog, i get a database error.
I really tried everything to help myself, but could someone maybe tell me how to get to the install screen? I am using Snow Leo 10.6.8 right now.
Please, i need help! It seems to me that some of u using the 1201nl not 1201n have already got over this issue.

Dear all,
Have one issue with sleep:
My 1201 go to sleep correctly when pressing the on/off button and selecting sleep or by selecting sleep in the startmenue.
But when closing the lid or pressing Fn+F1 or waiting till sleep will go to sleep by energy-options, then my 1201 shuts down in a very curious way. Afterwards I need to boot twice because first I have an error message at bootup like "wrong or bad image" or something like that ...

Any ideas? thx Mondi

Great! But why is this BIOS available now and not a year before?
I did an update to the unlocked 326 and now many new features are available in the BIOS.
Is there any documentation, which parameters are best for LION?

Greets Mondi!

EDIT: no that was wrong, powermanagment is allright, just the spotlight indexing was running for a longer time :-)

Hello mondi,

Which patched kernel do you use with 10.7.3 ?
(On 10.7.2 I'm still with xnu-1699.22.64 instead of xnu-1699.24.8)

Edit:
It works keeping this kernel.

Great guide!

Does this work with 10.7.3? I mean new install (not updating)?
And does AHCI has to be selected?

I've tried to install 10.7.3. But I hadn't luck: The installation GUI starts up, but after choosing the language, OSX crashes. Might this be a problem with 10.7.3? Should I try 10.7.2? Or even 10.7.0? Which is working best? Any suggestions...?

Took the plunge and updated my 1201N to 10.7.3 today. All went well, no real problems to mention. This system does require the re-installation of the AppleHDA.kext as well as the IOAudioFamily.kext to get sound working once again after the update. Most other desktop system I have only require the rollback of the AppleHDA.kext to get sound working once again.
