I have 2 machines with old intel G945GNTLKR motherboard and pentium D945.
Motherboards not work with any core2 processor. Now they have 10.6.7
I am really - REALLY - interested to run lion kernel with this old machines.

If you'd like to try it, I can give you the kernel.

More brain, more power or something that like. - Like this community.
Pentium D have only multimedia command or order, which calls SSE3. Lion needs SSSE3.
(one more S, if I remember right, different is four order)
Removing only cpu id is not enough. It is necessary to make emulation those 4 commands, which
lack this time. No one is anymore writing this emulation, maybe everyone capable have already enough
new processor and machine. That is a pity. (to us, of course... )
If I remember right, someone says, that even Finder use now those SSSE3 orders. In this situation
machine cannot even get Finder without full working emulation. Maybe this is the reason, why boot
But if You find some suitable place for kernel, I like to try myself. I am afraid, that I am a little bit

Do you know how to patch kernels? If so, can you direct me to where I can get a kernel patcher/kernel source code? I'd love to see if I could help in some way.
The main reason I haven't made this more public is because it doesn't work right...but maybe if we can get a few devs together we can get this sorted out (however, not even the great meklort knew what was up with my error). Some Atom kernels result in the same way as the one above.

I have successfully got Lion running on my Pentium D 940!!!! (no ssse3 support). EDIT: 64-bit apps are now WORKING!!! New kernel link:http://www.mediafire...spw5i1yabscdlbz
You must boot with -nossse3bit. And when I first used this, it got stuck on [pci configuration begin], this was fixed by installing the IOPCI package from the iAtkos L2 distro. Download the package here:http://www.mediafire...j216pa5p3oaphpk
After doing all this, I have a perfect Lion Pentium D Hackintosh!
