I was trying to get SL or Lion to be installed on my Desktop (tinyurl.com/hpe510cs) which is:
CPU: Intel Core i5 2500
GPU: AMD RadeonHD 6850
AUDIO: Integrated IDT 92HD89E Audio
I basicly tried to do the "nawcom boot cd" vanilla install. After the successfull installation and after chosing the mac os from chameleon, trying to boot it with -v or -v -x .. all I see is some verbose text for 3-4 seconds, and after that i get a BLACK screen and the FAN of the GPU is spinning INSANELY loud.
I tried to make a Lion install with the myHack thing - using the general extra. I couldnt get to the install - it stops at a WHITE screen.
I tried to install a Linux distro, and the funny thing is, that after the install i got an entry in Grub (32bit Mac os and 64bit). When I run it from there, the MAC OS could be loaded (but then something went wrong .. during the manual 10.6.8 update - kernel panic something about the AppleSMCPDRC .... IOPlatformPluginFamily ).
So, any suggestion how to get a working SL (at least 10.6.6) or Lion on this desktop?
Any suggestions & tips will be appreciated.
after i try to install 10.6.8 from GRUB (not chameleon) i get this error: http://oi40.tinypic.com/s5lisw.jpg
After I reboot the booting stops at this message (and then pc does nothing): http://i40.tinypic.com/34rc26b.jpg
I can boot from Nawcom boot CD to my installed MAC OS. So the loading works from Nawcom/Grub.
Lion install was freaking easy.
I used the myHack (http://myhack.sojugarden.com/guide/) booted the USB with -f.
After it installed the Lion. I booted with -f. After that - copied the Kext directory from /Extra folder on the USB to the drive /Extra folder.
After this is done - i have a working Lion. Wohoo!
