Hi, I do something wrong with the Chameleon Installation. 1203 ver. ok, but which method must be used?
Boot0hfs or Boot0 or Update? If I choose NOT the right one, I have to copy again the boot file?

(I mean I have to delete the installed boot file and then try another option)
I had dual win7/snow leo on my hd, now only 1 partition with win7.

I appreciate any help

EDIT: I tried chameleon 914, first delete boot file, then 914 install, then apple logo, and immediately restart...
If I install chameleon 1203 with one of the options, just spinning reel forever...
which version of chameleon can be also good?



start again from beginning
it only takes like 15 min to create the usb key

I can't get my Lion install to boot after the installation.
I have tried everything but it stalls by this message in verbose mode: "nstat_lookup_entry failed 2".
Anyone know what's wrong and how to fix this?


clean install or update?

No Bluetooth Ghosts anymore: I took the optimized AppleBT kext (the 2nd one) of Mr. Andy Vandijck :
Andy VanDijck and now it's working.

deleted the broadcomusb kext, replaced it with that one: --- and made an kextutil ... and all at 64 bit :)
have now working bt-mouse (logitech m555b) and bt-keyboard (apple, older one, 3 batteries) without BT-ghosts and they are available at login!

that are my /E/E's:


i still have ghosts ;/

and there is no option to turn off bt (only in bios) :/

update.

But I managed to get past the error by removing some caches:

sudo rm -rf System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches

Now stuck on next error though...

Gonna try to format and reinstall from scratch when I get home.
I should be able to install Lion and then restore all my stuff from Timemachine right?

Not for me, I had my Lion on HD what I have deleted...
I have another 1201 but NL, so not dual core, lion cannot be downloaded again with this.
Normally Base System, Packages, Extra, dsdt has to be good, but first I want to find a Chameleon that path me through on the first install.

Please, so answer my question, which method has to be used ? Boot0HFS, Boot0, or Update or doesnt matter ?
Thanks

How would I go about doing this then?
Is this something I can do with the Lion install stick?
Because my USB I installed snow leo from have suddenly stopped working... damn low price USB-memory sticks..

have now run disk utility to repair permissions and it fixed quite a few of them.
unfortunately no change. it still hangs with either "nspace-handler-set-snapshot-time:..." or "nstat_lookup_entry failed: 2"

now I'll try a clean install instead.

Hi, I have the same "nstat_lookup_entry failed" in Verbose Mode, but BEFORE the Lion install starts, when first time have to use the prepaired usb key, apple logo, spinning Reel forever...



Stupid Question,

if I bought Lion OSX (23,99 Euro) can I download it again with my apple ID ?
When yes, how many times or it is unlimited ?

This is fun... I'm now on my fifth try to install Lion.

The first try was to update from Snow Leo. Never got it to boot and ended up formatting the partition and installing from scratch. This worked... until I restored from Time Machine and ended up with the same result as the first try to update.
Both my third and fourth try to install quit about half way trough with the message that it couldn't install and that I should try again.

Now fifth try and keeping my fingers crossed.

Edit:
Nope. Failed half way trough this time also...
Could be my USB-stick though... it has been acting weird before.
Will get a new one tomorrow and make a new stick for a sixth try.

I had bundled Andy's optimized Bluetooth kext in my Extra kexts while on 10.6.8.

Looks like Crazy juice had some issue turning the bluetooth On/Off. So he has switched back to BroadcomUSB270Injector.kext in his guide.

Hello:

I'm trying to upgrade my Asus 1201N from 10.6.8 to Lion.

I made the USB disk, and everything seems to be fine since I get the same nstat_lookup_entry problem that some of you described. There's a thread talking about this issue here:

http://www.insanelym...hp/t263249.html

About the +4Gb Ram, here is explained why it does not work:
http://forum.eeeuser...hp?id=82918&p=2
The BIOS recognizes the extra ram, but seems that there's a firmware problem.

(sorry for the bad english)

Thanks
