"Using your existing AMD Machine running Snow Leopard"

Right now I'm on Leopard, do you think I can start the installation or I need to install Snow first?



Sorry if this is a stupid question

Thanks:)

Think you're fine just make sure iATKOS L2 is used, if you can open the OSInstall.mpkg file, then I'm sure you'll have no problems :D

Also there is a rare error, which my motherboard has where my keyboard just can't be plugged in unless I use bootflag USBLegacyOff=Yes. Try unplugging your keyboard after entering bootflags and pressing enter and then unplug. Strange, but I've stalled there numerous times. Also custom kexts shouldn't be used but Evoreboot didn't effect my installation, but you could have some that may be causing a problem. Also your motherboard might has different setting slots for Drives 1 - 4, Drives 5 - 7. Maybe you set AHCI to 1 - 4 but your drive is connected to the 5 - 7 slots, so in theory it's not actually AHCI?


Here's some of the custom kexts I've installed:
  • FakeSMC.
  • EvoreBoot.
  • Disabler.
  • IOPCIFamily.
  • RTC.
  • Realtek RTL.
  • ATI5000.kext configured - For my 5770
  • Atheros Fix - for wireless card (D-LINK G520 REV. B4)
  • VoodooHDA - but keyboard has a built-in sound card too (native) so I don't use motherboard sound card.
Also guide updated, my system seems more stable. See FAQ.




Ok I fixed that custom kext error by just repairing permissions using Disk Utility and then ran System Utilities in ########. That seems to solve the whole custom kext for me :D .

Deleted the report crash from core services hopefully I'll be able to open apps after 10 min :)

Method 2 install worked on ASUS M4A88T-V EVO/USB3 motherboard and AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition processor.
Here's some troubleshooting information you can add to your guide if you'd like.

Enabling hardware sensors in the iAtkos L2 install can cause FakeSMC to kernel panic. To fix this, simply remove FakeSMC.kext from S/L/E (note that this of course disables hardware sensoring capabilities).

Instead of typing npci=0x2000/0x3000 as a boot flag, simply install the IOPCIFamily patch in the iAtkos L2 install.

If your system hangs at "DSMOS has arrived", add -legacy to your bootflags.

I had some issues with installing Chameleon, which was odd since I've never had trouble with it, but I figure it's due to my EFI partition, so I'll have to format that if I install Lion again.

However, I'm going to continue to wait for a more stable kernel. Thank you for this guide, it was a tremendous help.

I have a XFX ATI 5770 I flashed a older bios to the card so that it can run out of the box for lion using chimera bootloader.

Add kernel flags to the org.chameleon.boot.plist file in /Extra folder under the Kernel Flags section.

Try npci=0x3000 or npci=0x2000 those are the general values. npci=0x3000 works for me on my motherboard (Gigabyte 890GPA-UD3H)

Even I had trouble completing the installation with a bootloader selected in iAtkos L2 installer. A manual installation of the bootloader did the work though :)

-legacy is needed, yes you're right about the other two. :) Use Chameleon Wizard, I've found it a lot more easier to install and update to the latest trunk.

npci=0x2000 or npci=0x3000 is used when you're stuck at [PCI Configuration Begin], use this to bypass it. For your graphics card: http://www.osx86.net...rch.html#result

Hey this doesn't fixed the problem. iThink it's because some sort of connection between mac os x and my motherboard - ASUS M4a785-T. IDK what to do now, though. Any help will be appreciated. :)

My motherboard is M4A785-M EVO, very similar. You're family and model number is 10/4? South bridge S600?

GFX: ATI XFX 5770
Mobo:Gigabyte 890GPA-UD3H
HDD in AHCI Mode

Thanks a lot for the tutorial :)


Thank God, I have the same config. Will attempt this this weekend.

I'm currently trying to install iATKOS L2 with the OSInstall.mpkg method.
I installed it and then patched the mach_kernel, I tried all 5. (I think 4 or 5)
When I try to boot it, it's the black screen after "Loading Darwin x86".
Some information: Using VirtualBox, CPU: AMD Athlon™ 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 5200+ 2.71GHz.
I have 2GB of RAM available, and I gave the VM 1.2GB.

Help please?

By patching it you mean replacing the mach_kernel with one of those linked within the guide? Also sounds like you need a newer build of Chameleon. You should install a newer version using Chameleon Wizard or re-install a newer version. It does work on VM though, I've got it working.

my SB is 710, and my CPu is Phenom ii x4 925 if that's what you mean.


All in All, I think it should work. Can you talk me through the steps you took, simple? Have you got a screenshot of the verbose, it would clear a lot more then just one line :)

hmmmmm, looks like my system will load Lion as I see X4 955 is on the list and I know my board works. but the whole point getting Lion is to use iCloud. I guess I will wait.

Yeah, I mean replacing it, that basicly IS patching...
Well, I'll go try doing that now, gotta re-install OS X and redownload Lion.

(Doesn't Chameleon only work with Intel CPU's?)

Okay, I thought you was running some kind of amd patcher which was created for the snow leopard dyld.

No, chameleon is just a boot loader.

Updated Chameleon to the latest version, and I got past the black screen.
Now, guess what?

I've tried the v4 one, the mach_kernel one, and mach_kernel_amd.
Help?
