I am making progress getting an ML USB Installation Disk to boot up on my Dell Inspiron 1720. However, I have encountered the error "IOAHCIBlockStorage Driver Could Not Recover SATA HDD after 5 attempts, terminating." I have tried using the IOAHCIBlockStorageInjector.kext and have tried using the IOAHCIFamily.kext from Lion and neither have solved this problem. It occurs after the boot disk has been found, the ram disks are created and DSMOS has arrived. Any ideas? Thanks.

I got this error to go away by using the boot flag "max_valid_dma_addr=1024." However, it is still hanging, and I suspect it is the same issue as the "DSMOS has arrived" issue - graphics not loading. I have the X3100 GPU and am trying to combine the installation files for OSx86 along with the files from macrumors used to install ML on an unsupported mac with X3100.
