Greetings - I have been handed a Lenovo M90 desktop with the challenge of installing OSX. This is a stock Lenovo desktop machine:
- Core 2 Duo i5 660
- Integrated Intel Video controller (64mb - 8086:0042)
- SATA Controller (AHCI)
- on-board Audio
- on-board ethernet (82578DM Gigabit)

I am using iATKOS L2, and I can boot to the installer, change options, and the install completes successfully - no issues, no kernel panics, no hangs, and I can even use the utils during install to wipe drives, and get system info.

However, on post boot install, I see these issues:

BootCacheControl: Unable to open /var/db/BootCaches/..../<Merged.playlist
BootCacheControl: Unable to open /var/db/BootCaches/..../Login.playlist
...
ACPI_SMC_PlatformPlugin::start - waitForService(resrouceMatching(AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement) timed out
DSMOS has arrived

after about 15 mins -

IOSCatalogue resetting

So here's my general question: if I can get into the installer, and that GUI runs fine, and it can see my HD just fine - is there a way to circumvent whatever issues are occurring here stemming from power management, or video card so I can get to the desktop?

THIS JUST IN - I was going to reboot the system and get an image of the BIOS screen, so I pressed and held down power and got this Kernel Panic:

You guys know more than - what do you think?

Another quick update: I've tried butt-basic installs with no drivers, just main system, and VGA - with the same results...

Same with me. Since you posted, have you progressed?

fsck -fy
mount -uw /
mkdir /intelhd_backup
cd /System/Library/Extensions
