Since 10.6 i do install retail but have always used some hack (mostly Multibeast) to do the after installation. Not always clean...
I have installed Lion on my clean HDD and updated to 10.7.2 with system update (no problem). The clean install was done with the regae DVD maker (Thank you RAGAE!!!) and now i have a choice: Either i use Multibeast 4.2.1 (which I've kinda done for the network since I'm writing this) and EasyBeast choice or i patch my own DSDT...
Now I'm still booting with the regaeDVD and lion is working but without IDE (which i still use), eSATA, sound and with the generic ATI driver for 4800 cards (Multibeast offers to inject the right model number but is it only for looks or will the openGL performance change?). Of course there is no sleep (which i really do not need) and no speed-step. Shutdown and restart is functional.
My plan is to do it right but i really don't know which part i should patch in the DSDT and what functionality i should get with some kext's. Which sollution i should use for 10.7.2 and my MoBo i.e. sound can be done with ALC8xxHDA but there is (I've read) a problem with online system updates or use VoodooHDA and have some quality issues (irritating noise in my speakers)
I also like to use the full power of my RAM chips. They are only using 1069MHz but they could do 1600. And i think i can "overclock" then in smbios.plist and not in the actual BIOS. Am I missing something here?
So I've used my ubuntu liveCD and extracted the DSDT (attachment) and also saved the logs
My question is, are there some smart people who can show me directions for patching my DSDT and give me some hints for the kext's i should have?
