@ Jon lachonis Well
AppleIntelSNBGraphicsFB.kext and AppleHDA.kext both need to be installed with kextuutilty.app other wise they will not work.
Secondly reasons for distortion issues can be many things, presence of nvidia kexts, intel gma 950, intel gma x3100 and intel hd kexts. Just remove all unnecessary kexts also remove ATI kexts. After deleting these kexts u need to clear the kernelcache. Then simply run kextutility.app it will generate a new kernelcache for the existing kexts. Just follow the guide exactly without skipping any steps.
By the way do u have 1920x1080 or 1600x900 resolution ? i have added 1920x1080 as default screen resolution in org.chameleon.boot.plist, if u have smaller resolution please change it accordingly.
Frankly speaking its not recommended to use i7 DSDT and SSDT on i5 processor. In i7 DSDT the code includes 8 cores where as i5 has 4 cores and in SSDT the p states differ due to difference in processor speeds. But with rapid development in chameleon boot loader v 2.1, We no longer need SSDT in the root of the lion partition. Just make sure u have enabled generate P states= yes generate C states= yes in org.chameleon.boot.plist and then u can delete SSDT with confidence.
I will patch ur i5 processor with applicable patches, Can u please post ur i5 DSDT.aml or DSDT.dsl generated with the help of DSDTparser DSDTEditor_Linux_Windows. Please post the vanilla ( i mean original DSDT without any modifications, patches) DSDT. Also please post the hardware details of ur laptop, i mean sound card is it ALC 665 or some other), do u have optimus ? As i need to know what i am patching.
U need to format ur hard drive to MBR not GUID partition. One more thing i would recommend u to install lion on the same hard drive where Windows 7 is installed in order to mitigate the problems. Just shrink ur current Windows 7 partition and install lion on it.
Great thanks! This is the raw DSDT.dsl, I did not attempt to compile or error fix it at all. I had some problems compiling it before, I wound up commenting some lines per your instructions.
I really appreciate you taking the time to do this. Here are my specs
Dell XPS 17 L702x X17L-3333ELS
i5-2430M 2.4GHz processor
1GB NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 550M graphics with Optimus
The audio seems to be working fine, so I'm guessing this is 100% compatible. I wasn't able to find any listing suggesting that there was a model with a different sound card.
Also, the bus ratio for the process is 24 so I've adjusted that as well as the res in org.chameleon.boot.plist.
