Hi,

I have successfully installed the L2 without any errors or such but it refuses to start and is stuck at Apple Logo ! No matter what I do I can't get past that,Tried all the various strings like -x,-v,-f all together -x -v -f but no use !

Anyways I have a Dell Studio 1535 as the spec is as follows :

CPU : Intel Core2Duo 2.0Ghz
Chipset :Intel GM/PM 965,Intel ICH8M
RAM : 3GB DDR2 800
HDD : 250 WD SATA
GPU : ATI Mobility Radeon HD3450
Audio :IDT 92HD73C High Definition Audio codec

I tried Iatkos l2 and did a lot tweaking but to no avail,it just won't start and is stuck at apple logo,if I do verbose with safe mode or otherwise this where I end up

Can someone please help me ??

Regards.

Try booting with the following boot flags:

-v npci=0x2000

or

-v npci=0x3000

Try installing iAtkos L2 and don't select any extra items in the Customize box. Just leave the default items checked, don't check any more of them. If you need additional things after you get booted, that can be dealt with at that time.

I tried twice with two different media but the result is same,if I don't select any option and just continue with the installation it hangs at the very last moment when it says 1min left !!

Can you please elaborate as to what exactly do I need to do ??

Hi,

Well folks After all day long tinkering and breaking/banging my head I didn't make any headroom in successfully booting into Lion on my Studio 1535 !

I tried reinstalling with some options and was successful with the installation and even got it to work (had to remove elliotlegacy.kext) but the damn mouse/keyboard wouldn't work so tried some more only to screw things and render it dead or bring it to same old state!

Long story short,I out of curiosity I thought to try and see whether I was able to install SL and brought the old SL Hazard 10.6.6i and loaded and hour later voila it booted (but again had to to remove the Elliot S***T to actually login) !

Here I Am posting from the same !! What a joy but yet not so much :hammer: !

Anyone of you guys have any idea's as to why I was not able to do Lion and could do SL ??

Offcourse there are some small time nags like,trackpad doesn't work to fullest and Vodoo PS2 installer did nothing to solve it !

Regards

I haven't met a Dell yet that didn't panic at the mere thought of ElliotLegacyRTC :)Other than that and the PS/2 kext for keyboard/trackpad, sounds like you pretty much got it worked out already. Use the apple PS/2 kexts instead of the voodoo, if they aren't on your iKraptoss disk just google search and you'll find them. Grab a USB mouse and keyboard to use temporarily if you need to until you finish installing. after initial instal add additional kexts 1 at a time and repair permissions/rebuild caches and reboot between each one so if there's a problem you will have an easier time knowing what the cause was(although it sounds like you are able to interpret the kernel logs already, so kudos on that)

Well Whatever the heck it is it sure rakes in quite a bit of havoc,Even on some HP and other !! Anyways who needs it !!

(although it sounds like you are able to interpret the kernel logs already, so kudos on that)


Am trying as hard as I can to learn and understand things but not getting enough help,Will eventually figure it out fully !!

Coming to the subject, after another down the drain I was able to see the light at the end of the tunnel :| !!

I was able to finally see the welcome screen with the below mentioned string !

"-x -v npci=0x2000 pci=off GraphicsEnabler=no"

Mouse didn't work but was able to finish setting the account as was lucky enough to have the keyboard working,What a relief ???? Relief My @SS. Most of the things that worked flawlessly in the SL didn't work on Lion ! No Cam,No Mouse,No LAN,No Wifi,No Nothing just a bland OS !

So I started to tinker again and midway I got so pissed that as I asked is this worth all the aggravation :boxing: ?? Heck NOOOOOOOOOO :fiery: ! So I just did what perhaps I should've done long time ago,Threw the Lion and brought the SL Back !

Will be keeping an close eye on the happenings though just in case some come up with something !!

Thanks to all the folks for the help and support !!

Regards.

Well, again I think you did well to get it installed, fixing the other little things is the easy part. My advice would be to install Lion to a seperate partition so you still have SL to use until Lion is fully working for you. Don't let it frustrate you, have fun with it. The needed kexts for your remaining hardware should be available if they work in SL, but would need the model of device each along with device and vendor ID's to be of any help locating them for you.
