WARNING - ACPI_SMC_CtrlLoop::initCPUCtrlLoop - no sub-config match for MacBookPro4,1 with 17 p-states, using default stepper instead
this means u have no /Extra/smbios.plist with MacBook5,1 .. so it defaults to pro 4,1 which wont work wireless.

Hi Guys,

I've created the lion USB from the guides available on the site, edited the settings in the BIOS to AHCI, and put my lion USB to install.

Now here is the part that is driving me crazy, sometimes it goes well all the way to the installer but gets stuck in random places when its installing.

sometimes the usb is stuck while booting into the installer, again in various places.

Am i missing something here? I've been working on this for the past day non stop.

My Laptop :

M1530 2.13 Ghz core 2 duo
2 GB Ram
Nvidia 8600 GT
Hardware formatted using GUID
SATA set to AHCI

Which DSDT.aml are you using? Does it have the PCI Configuration Error fix?

Try moving all your kexts from the /Extra/Extensions directory to the /System/Library/Extensions directory and adding UseKernelCache=Yes to your org.chameleon.Boot.plist.

im thinking smbios.plist .. or UseKernelCache=Yes


Tried UseKernalCache=Yes when booting and it frooze at :

System uptime in nanoseconds:15414423078

Could you elaborate more on smbios.plist Latin?


Which DSDT.aml are you using? Does it have the PCI Configuration Error fix?


i thought the DSDT is done post installation. could you point me in the right direction Darwin?

You also need the DSDT.aml to actually utilize the Mac OS X Lion installation app.
[GUIDE] Making a DSDT.aml for Dell XPS M1330, XPS M1530, and XPS M1730
The DSDT.aml is at the bottom of the first post of that thread. Use the one that corresponds to your system. Ensure to include the latest NVidia DSDT patch for the 10.7.2 unless you use the Chameleon's GraphicsEnabler=Yes argument in the org.chameleon.Boot.plist in which case simply remove the NVidia graphics injection from your DSDT.aml

sorry if i sound like such a noob but I'm a bit confused on how to inject the dsdt file after i've edited it as i know this is done post install with bootable copy of lion installed . my dell m1530 currently drive has no OS X installed in it.

make a usb installer. then install chamelon2.1 on it. then install /Extra/Extensions/FakeSMC.kext to it and /Extra/dsdt.aml and /Extra/smbios.plist and
/Extra/org.chameleon.Boot.plist (make it if not found fromold rename com.apple.boot.plist)
now the usb should boot to install.
if you add the Acpips2nub (in my signature) to it the keyboard works. not the mouse (at least not in m1330 or inspiron 1520 synaptics.. so u need a usb mouse for install)
until it finishes and u install it to /System/Library/Extensions (then the touchpad works... synaptics)

i see already loaded different version of IOPCIFamily..did u mix them up with someones "fix" ?
with dsdt the Device (PCI0) _UID, Zero it should load without replacing older versions..

try -v -x UseKernelCache=No then try to do the update.
(dont have alot of kexts in /Extra, sometimes this is part of issue with lion)

Nice MacBookPro4,1 in bottom :) thats the problem use MacBook(notPro)5,1 or MacBookPro6,1

Ok Followed your instructions. though i can't seem to find org.chameleon.Boot.plist and when i boot the usb it goes into setup and then tell me "this copy of mac can't be installed on this machine"

should i do some edits to the DSDT files i got the link darwin gave me?

the dsdt should work fine.
the org.chameleon.. thats supposed to be made by chameleon installer.

if its not there.. grab an old (prior to name convention change 2.0 RC5 svn 102X)org.apple.boot.plist
and rename it.

is this for lion or snow ? lion u have to replace files on the usb like mach_kernel and BaseSystem...AND OSInstall (next post bellow of mine). (maldon has a guide that worked fine for me)

I used the latest version out there. it didn't create a org.chameleon.. file in the extras folder!

Do you mean this guide? http://www.insanelym...howtopic=256729

thats the guide i'm using for the usb.

I'll give the version of chameleon you mentioned and let you know how it goes.
