"I will post about my experience soon. I am still experimenting with it. "
This is about getting Mac OS X Lion up and running on an AMD Desktop.
I have chosen Niresh's Distribution for my install. But I am sure that the procedure as well as the problems faced by everyone will be the same. So let's work it out.
Motherboard: ASUS M4A88T-M-LE [ 880G Chipset ]
Processor: AMD Phenom II X4 955 [ Black Edition ]
Graphics: ATI Radeon HD 5670 [ 1GB GDDR5 ]
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 2 x 4GB
1. SATA Mode changed to AHCI from IDE
This is for people facing Still waiting for root device error. Changing SATA mode to AHCI corrects it.
2. Took out a RAM
Hackintosh has problems with Dual Channels most of the time.
3. Suspend mode changed to S3 from AUTO
I am not sure about this. I was reading about a successful AMD installation with this configuration. But I saw no difference yet.
4. Booted from DVD with Boot: "Kernel Cache"=\amd arch=i386 -v
Successfull discovery of all 4 cores of the CPU and 4GB RAM.
5. And this is where I get Stuck:
USBMSC Identifier (non unique): 000000264001 0x424 0x4060 0x182
USBF: 54.274 AppleUSBOHCI [0x7fdb800] :: CheckSleepCapability - controller will be unloaded across sleep
Check screenshot for details of the error message with complete install log.
Requesting assistance with these issues. Kindly post your problems with installing Mac OS X Lion on AMD in this thread.
