Hi, thanx for the info about SMBIOS. Here are screenshots:

Strangely it says I have a 1.6 GHz, in real it is 2.26 GHz.

I can switch BT on and off in Win7 by a batch script (BTon,off.bat) that I googled and adapted to my Hardware ID.

Ja, sorry dafür. Am Anfang ging es auch um Lion, bis ich mich entschied, SL zu installieren wg. den vielen Schwierigkeiten mit iAtkos L1 und weil mir der PookyMacMan empfohlen hat, eine Retail-Installation zu machen.

Gehen Sie voran und tun Lion jetzt. Es ist eigentlich besser auf Snow Leopardvor dem Lion dennoch installieren. Persönlich Ich mag die xMove Führung;google it es ist genial. :)

How do I set that up?

Ok, I'll try to install Lion. But I don't wanna pay for it :afro:
Can you send me a link (PM) where I can get a proper version of Lion?? What do I have to take care of when searching for it? Does any Lion-Version work? Can I keep my files and documents from SL or will it be wiped with installation of Lion?

Use the utility Lizard to edit your SMBIOS.plist. See if you can figure it out on your own. ;)

You can install Lion as an upgrade to SL. I'll give you more info in my PM.

Ok, seems I managed to install an org.chameleon.Boot.plist and a smbios.plist in /Extra directory. Do they override the com.apple.boot.plist?
Here is my smbios.plist, did I do it right?

Glad to hear that the trackpad works!!

For Bluetooth, if you have to use a special script in Windows most likely your Bluetooth card does not natively support on/off functions.

For webcam, fixes depend on how your webcam is connected. If it is USB it should be pretty easy; if it's VGA (or anything else), it might be slightly harder. You can check where it is in Windows Device Manager. Do you have QE/CI enabled (a good way to check is to see if DVD Player opens)?

For Mic, are you using VoodooHDA? If so, I'm writing a guide for patching audio I/O for another member; I'll link it when I'm done.

For SMBIOS, the model is supposed to be MacBook5,1, not MacBookPro5,1. So go back into Lizard and change the Model Name to MacBook, the Model Identifier to MacBook5,1, and the Boot ROM Version to MB51.88Z.00A5.B07.0706270922 (available from the pop-up menu).

As for com.apple.boot.plist vs. org.chameleon.boot.plist, it all depends on the version of Chameleon. If it originally had com.apple.boot.plist, that's what you use; if it had org.chameleon.boot.plist, then use that. If you made an org.chameleon.boot.plist that you want to use instead, simply rename it to com.apple.boot.plist.

did u set to Yes GeneratePStates and GenerateCStates ?

pooky is right on the name of boot.plist... the version change is in 2.0 RC5 svn 102x so if youre using 2.1 u need org.cham...

Glad to hear that the trackpad works!! For Bluetooth, if you have to use a special script in Windows most likely your Bluetooth card does not natively support on/off functions.

Yes could be. For now I'll just let it run. Maybe later I'll have a look at it.

For webcam, fixes depend on how your webcam is connected. If it is USB it should be pretty easy; if it's VGA (or anything else), it might be slightly harder. You can check where it is in Windows Device Manager.

It is even shown in my Profiler. It is connected to a USB Highspeed Bus:
USB2.0 UVC PC Camera:
  Produkt-ID: 0x5931
  Hersteller-ID: 0x174f
  Version: 11.20
  Seriennummer: 0001
  Geschwindigkeit: Bis zu 480 MBit/s
  Hersteller: Syntek
  Standort-ID: 0xfa300000 / 2
  Verfügbare Stromstärke (mA): 500
  Erforderliche Stromstärke (mA): 500

Do you have QE/CI enabled (a good way to check is to see if DVD Player opens)?

Yep, it works. DVD opens up. And Graphics look fine. Worked out of the box from beginning.

For Mic, are you using VoodooHDA? If so, I'm writing a guide for patching audio I/O for another member; I'll link it when I'm done.

Cool! Yes, I am using VoodooHDA.

For SMBIOS, the model is supposed to be MacBook5,1, not MacBookPro5,1. So go back into Lizard and change the Model Name to MacBook, the Model Identifier to MacBook5,1, and the Boot ROM Version to MB51.88Z.00A5.B07.0706270922 (available from the pop-up menu).

OK, did it. In fact this changed nothing (so far). I will try the tip below to enhance my smbios.plist

As for com.apple.boot.plist vs. org.chameleon.boot.plist, it all depends on the version of Chameleon. If it originally had com.apple.boot.plist, that's what you use; if it had org.chameleon.boot.plist, then use that. If you made an org.chameleon.boot.plist that you want to use instead, simply rename it to com.apple.boot.plist.

For now I'll just leave the original com.apple.boot.plist. Thanks for the info.

missing SMboardproduct which means u found that somewhere from last year that someone posted

Haha, wrong! I created the smbios on my own :star_sunglasses:

did u set to Yes GeneratePStates and GenerateCStates ?

Nope, I didn't do that. But I'll use the original com.apple.boot.plist for now.

no wonder its not working with airport monitor bundle. ( u created on your own yet u copy n paste from somewhere im sure.. info doesnt appear magicaly out of thoughts)
u still didnt address the missing <key>SMboardproduct</key>
which wont let wireless work properly, needs it for lag to go away in 10.6.8 or lion... not the bundlemonitor rename.

Okay, explain me CLEARLY please, what I am supposed to do. Actually my Wireless is working (through renaming that file there). How can I get the string you say inside my smbios?

The wireless behaves like before. Also the speed is the same. The only thing that always appears is that after booting (just like before, too) I have to disable and enable Wifi else it doesn't recognize available hotspots. This is an issue I would like to have fixed. Thanx for your support!

Actually it's in /Extra. If you google DSDT Editor that is a really good (and easy) way to extract your DSDT. If you can't figure it out let me know. :)
