Hi ErmaC (nice name btw :() thanks for your hard work, I now have Lion installed on a P6T Deluxe V2, i7 920, 560Ti

Only problem I'm having is if I use the DSDT on page 1, OS X crashes on Boot.

Without it, I can boot and get correct res (by adding 0x1200 to NVDA100) but I dont have sound or Ethernet.

Have you seen this before?

How do I go about getting my DSDT edited?

Thanks again,
Sam (mr_kratz)



Post your IOREG dumped with IORegistryExplorer.app
we can see what we can do. :D

Thanks for looking, my system is as follows:

P6T Deluxe V2
i7 920
6GB Ram
Asus Geforce 560Ti Direct CU II TOP (1024mb)

Without DSDT GFX is working fine after editing the NVDAGF100HAL kext.

I'm more concerned about getting audio and network working correctly, but it would be nice to run the system as vanilla as possible of course :(

Also, if the processor is set in DSDT, am I able to overclock still?

I've attached a copy of my current chameleon boot.plist file with EFI string included for GFX card.

Again, your help is much appreciated :D

I see "confusion" inside your o.c.B.p ... why a EFI strings for the gfx and also a GraphicsEnabler=Yes???

This things make crazy the "things"..


Anyway use this DSDT w/o GraphicsEnabler and w/o EFI Strings... and of course you can run in 64bit mode..

OK, I removed the EFI String and the GraphicsEnabler sections from the ocBp file and added the DSDT file.

Still KP on boot, just booted with -v and the KEXTs being highlighted in the backtrace are AppleACPIPlatform IOAPCIFamily and AppleSMBIOS.

Any idea why this may be happening?

If not, I'll rebuild the machine from scratch using your step by step guide (I used rBoot and ##### last time) and apply the DSDT before making any more changes.

This way at least we have a 'clean slate' to start with, so diagnosing may be simpler :)

Thanks again,
Sam

If you make a clean install can you use that DSDT (it have your gfx injected) so just make sure to "disable" GraphicsEnabler when you boot from the USB...

So I got everything running on Lion 10.7.2, except sleep. It refuses to work. Normally putting my mac to sleep will result in either:
> Turning the box back on and being presented with a black screen
> Turning back on and Finder crashing pretty much instantly.

Also, on an unrelated note, any ideas on getting the second dvi connector to work on a GTX 470? Im getting fed up of one of my screens not working.

I tried that, rebooted. Started up fine.
Tried sleep, Computer came on. Turned itself back off
Turned it on with the power button, kernel panicked with 'cpu4 caller'
Had to boot into windows and switch to the old dsdt before I could boot in again

Hey all!

I'm taking my first spin on OSX86 with much earnest and this guide in hand. I'm running into problems with my (I'm pretty sure) video cards. I'm running 2 XFX Radeon HD 4890's, one monitor a piece. IF I boot from USB, and choose the USB to boot from in verbose mode, I get:

" Memory allocation error! Addr=0xdeadbeef, Size=0x0, File=ati.c, Line=950
This is a non recoverable error! System HALTED!!! "

Rebooted with "GraphicsEnabler=No" to only be stuck at the loading screen until eventually a crossed circle symbol came over the Apple logo in the center. This same screen stayed until I shut down over 5 minutes later.

My system specs are in my sig and any help is greatly appreciated!

Regards,
Khepira

I can only suggest you to unmount the second card and do the installation...
I'm no good with DSDT injection for ATI card... looks like the problem is this.... the bootloader don't manage two or more GFX... maybe I'm wrong.

So you can boot/install with one gfx make "the right" adjustment (custom kext? no idea) and after this try to get work the second card.

I have been reading this forum about getting 10.7.2 installed but most of what I have read has to do with updating from stable 10.7.1.

I have been running 10.7.0 since LION came out but I need to reinstall since I have switched some hard drives around and got a new one.

My question is can I reinstall with 10.7.2 COMBO UPDATE in the lionize BOX folder? If so are the steps the same or is there more to it? I don't have another partition running osx to run the vsbutil command.

How should I go about this or should I just run 10.7.1 for now?

THANKS!

My System: P6T V2, GTX 260, I7 920

NO GO!

When loading from the usb drive on first boot it loads the apple silver logo screen and after a few minutes it comes up with a 0 and a slash through it and will act like it's loading forever. So I cannot get into the setup screen.

I will try 10.7.1 in the BOX folder instead and see where I get.

UPDATE: No go again. Trying in verbose mode to see if I can find out what is hanging it.

UPDATE 2: Verbose mode keeps repeating "Still waiting for root device"

UPDATE 3: So after hours of messing with it I finally figured it out. I re-downloaded lion from the app store to have the .app file and finally figured out that when you do that it re-downloads the newest 10.7.2. So I went back in my files and found my original 10.7.0 and all is well. Updated to 10.7.1 after the install and everything is good now.

10.7.2 is next but worried about trying that at this point until more info comes.

Hey, just wanted to toss some major kudos your way. Lion has never worked better for me than it does now, albeit with a few minor issues. That said I do have a few questions.

My system config is as follows:

ASUS P6X58D-E

4 GB RAM (G-Skill)

Sapphire Radeon 5750 (NOT the Vapor-X) 1024MB

I was using ####### setup, but it was not designed for this mobo. Your method worked like a champ by comparison, save for the usual lack of HDMI audio from the Radeon card. I also had trouble with AppleHDA if I made even the slightest change to the system.

When I switched to Lionize everything seemed to work fine EXCEPT:

1. Backpanel audio is present and working. However front panel HD Audio is nonfunctional and no longer listed.

2. I installed with the 10.7.2 App Store Download. The system will only boot if GenerateCStates, GeneratePStates and EhternetBuiltIn are present in o.c.B.p. Not crucial, per se, just more of a curiosity than anything.

3. HDMI Audio is a necessity, but I'm willing to do that work myself. As long as HDEF is present in the DSDT I should be fine.

EDIT: Oh, and it reversed the scroll wheel on my Logitech Wireless Mouse. :lol:

If it helps, I've attached my IOREG and Boot.plist. Many thanks in advance for any help provided.

I try several ways to include the combo 10.7.2... but no lucky...

I repost what I do to get work my OS X Lion after a 10.7.2 Combo update...
----------
1) You need an existing OSX to Repair/move rebuild cache ecc...
2) Update your Lion 10.7.0 or 10.7.1 to 10.7.2
3) Run Recreandae (from Lionize 1.06)--> Here <--
4) Reboot into a old OSX (ex: Snow or Leopard or other Lion)
5) Open terminal and enter in sudo mode
sudo -s
enter your admin password
now
vsdbutil -i /Volumes/the_name_of_your_Lion_partition
6) Now I suggest to move FakeSMC from Extra/Extensions to S/L/E
For this you can use Kext Wizard
(In my case I move also AppleVIAATA.Kext)
now remove that file from Extra/Extensions (Of course we talk about the Lion partition)
Always from Kext utitlity now we can rebuild the cache and repair disk permission..
this take some time...
7) ok exit from sudo mode (Terminal)
exit

This work for me..

Hm. Odd that mine worked almost seamlessly from the 10.7.2 app with some tweaks to ocBp. Maybe it's just the P6X58D-E DSDT?
