Install failed. " The installer could not start up the computer from the disk "
Has anyone faced this ? I feel it is the bootloader problem . Thinking of booting from the usb and then selecting the installed ML HDD.

Now i passed "Still waiting for root device" BUT, stuck in "iobluetoothhcicontroller setconfigstate calling registerservice" any sugges? I am increasingly near the installation
I tried for a week.


you have a laptop, then you have probably forgotten to install the driver for keyboard and touchpad. you can search google for suitable driver for your hardware or try this here
I boot my Intel laptop with the following boot flag: arch = x86_64 cpus =1 , maybe it will help

Now i'm stuck in "Still Waiting for root device" Once again, it appears sometimes, sometimes yes sometimes no, Why? and only pass with -x


Sorry, I was of the assumption that you have a laptop.
did you have installed all the necessary chipset drivers? SuperVIATA.kext?your BIOS settings are correct?
than boot with flag: npci=0x3000 PCIRootUID=0 GraphicsEnabler=No -x ?

Agreed.
Nor VMWare nor Parallels has QE/CI drivers... only framebuffer support

Yes of course it's not native QE/CI drivers ... only framebuffer support but I have the same animation effect with the login and chess play... :)

Here is the new kernel, opemu enhanced for SSE3 emulation (some P4's with 64bit and early Athlon64 cpu's require SSE3 emulation).
Test please ;)


I wish I knew...
I don't have a clue why the NVidia GPU's don't work.
(I have a NVidia Geforce 8300 GS and I also use this kernel... it seems to work fine, but I have Intel :X)


This *maybe* stupid but I will ask anyway. Have you tried EFI Strings for the GPU??
Has anyone else tried EFI Graphic Strings for any NVIDIA Cards?

Under Snow Leo I have better results with them than any kext, enabler/injector, chimera/chameleon. Still having my own unrelated issues with Lion/ML.

skypete, If you manage to get it past loading the kexts without instantly rebooting, can you let all us FX cpu owners know what you did
as no matter what we do we cannot get it to work.

fsb=<busspeed in mhz> busratio=<muliplier>
Should work


Nope dose not work andy, still get instant reboot after loading of kexts.

I can confirm that this is/could be something to do with CPU speed/bus speed detection, as whilst testing Lion pure 64-bit kernels, I removed the busratio=20
boot flag and theconnactic's Lion 64-bit mode kernel instantly rebooted after kexts where loaded. Put back busratio=20 and boots to desktop ok.

There needs to be some indepth investigation for FX (Bulldozer & Piledriver) cpu's me thinks as there are NO reports of any installs getting past the
loading of kexts.

Hello, Mungo!

There's a fellow AMD user which reportedly get his FX 8350 working: his name's gils83, if i'm not wrong. Send him a PM to learn how he did it.

Best regards!

Ok so there is, I stand corrected.

BUT is this on a live machine, actual hardware OR in emulation, VirtualBox/VmWare?

If it is on actual hardware then I would like to get the kernel and what he used to make the install image
so I could give it a go.
