Looking for some help form the experts. I was fine under 10.7.1 and the install seemed to go fine for 10.7.2 but I can't boot into it. Uploaded images of where it stops in verbose and the KP in safe. Any ideas?
I had the same issue with EP43-UD3L using Cartri BIOS.
Here's what you need to do.
Remove the AppleGraphicsControl.kext (version 3.0.16) from S/L/E by booting in single user mode, from another drive, etc. Just remove that kext!
Boot into 10.7.2 with -v -f flags. The system will bring you to the Finder.
My system seemed like it was working fine -- graphics, sound (had to reinstall patched applehda), network, etc.
Since I don't know the long-term repercussion of not having AppleGraphicsControl.kext and don't really have the time to deal with it, I put a backup copy from the previous version (3.0.8) in S/L/E manually.
Reboot. And it works!
Oh, if you're looking for the old version, someone on the previous page thread posted 10.7 kexts.
Good luck you eager-smeager-early-adopter!
And let us know if this worked out for you.
