Hiya everyone,

With some help of the excellent guides on this forum (thanks so much for that, it is great for newbies!) I managed to get my first Hackintosh running. I am now writing this from OSX 10.7.2. I love it.

I'm just having a few minor issues that I'd like to solve, and I hoped you guys could help me out! (yes, I did do research and checked the forums, but I couldn't find anything yet.)

Whenever I boot my Mac, it either gets stuck after DSMOS has arrived and it says "NTFS Volume etc.", or it takes a long time and then eventually boots up the GUI. Also, when it finally boots (this usually takes 3 minutes from the point it reads "NTFS") I see the GUI, and all the programs initialize (like Spotify etc.) and my mouse moves, but clicking or typing on the keyboard doesn't work for about a minute.

I'd hope to solve that, just like the following problem: Sometimes, and this more often doesn't work than does, when I try to copy something from 1 place to another, the copy dialog comes up, but it'll read "Zero bytes from ...", and stay like that. Clicking Stop doesn't stop it, the only stopping is done true "killlall Finder" in the Terminal.

Also, Text Edit doesn't start up, but this is not such a problem.

My system:

AMD Athlon x4 640
AsRock M3A770DE (AMD 770 NB, SB710)
4GB ram, ASUS NVIDIA GeForce GT 430.

I have installed iAtkos L2 through installing Snow Leopard first, then running the Lion installer and replacing the mach_kernel by this one: http://www.osx86.net...md!!!!!!!!.html (version4, that's what the guide I used, http://www.insanelym...erimental-only/, recommended)

The boot flags I use are as follows (yes, I also run it in verbose mode for the time being) : -legacy -v arch=i386 npci=0x3000


I hope you guys could help me out getting my Lion to run stable, would be great!

Thanks in advance,
Daan

This is just a shot in the wind, but maybe try 'npci=0x2000'. I used to use npci=0x3000 and I had similar symptoms to what you are getting. Changing to npci=0x2000 worked fine.
