I have a Vostro 1700 which is the same as an Inspiron 1720 with ML 10.8.1 installed. I have another post where it shows the instructions for what I did to make the system work.
http://www.insanelym...cs/page__st__20. (Scroll down for full instructions)
Basically it has a T7250 C2D, 4GB DDR2, Nvidia 8600m GT. I created a copy of the HDD on an external drive and use it to test install 10.8.2 and I am running into plenty of problems.
I used the 10.8.2 Combo update and before the restart I replaced the AppleACPIPlatform.kext and rebuild the cache using Kext Utility. I do not have oemsmbios.kext in FakeSMC, so that isn’t a problem.
I reboot normal with no flags and it freezes on the Apple screen with the pinwheel.
I use –v and it stops in different places every time. Sometimes get KP, sometimes not.
I use –f and it stops in different places every time. Sometimes get KP, sometimes not.
I’ve booted with useKernelCache=no and it will boot sometimes, but it eventually locks up.
I’ve booted with graphicsenabler=no, again, it will boot sometimes, but eventually locks up.
I cannot boot to safe mode using –x no matter what I do, freezes at the apple screen.
Tried replacing Nvidia kexts, got KP.
Anyone have any clues on how to fix this?
