In Topic: Help me install Lion DP2 Please

07 May 2011 - 03:52 PM

Attached 0.83.05 as requested.
I'm currently in the IRC channel with the creator of this booter.
I can relay the issue to him if you want?

What's the issue?

In Topic: Supported Graphics cards with Full QE/QI

04 May 2011 - 07:49 PM

Thanks for the contribution, fattire357.
I'm looking at a new graphics card, and obviously Mac OS X really isn't going to utilize these cards to their extent. Although a 5770 sounds a great buy, it's probably not going to cut it for windows gaming (which is probably what most people will still be doing with their cards (dual booting etc))/

I'm looking at a 6870, but no idea if it'd work AT ALL, so i'm hesitant to buy one in case it renders OSX practically useless! - Another good reason to hold onto my 8800GT

The latest 752 chameleon should support booting Lion, however the installation of it is nowhere as simple as other booters.
Personally i would recommend testing/installing on another drive, as things are far from working 100%

The booter i'm using, and assisting with is XPC 0.83.05, which now supports booting from a HDD (I haven't tested this, as there is no simple documentation, and the developer is quite busy with the progression of the loader)

The XPC 0.83.05 (and some previous versions) allow the installation of lion WITHOUT ANY modifications to the original DMG (which i'd previously been doing). The trickiest part is making the USB stick work

Basically it goes a little something like this

Windows; Run a tool designed for the process (never worked for me)

(existing) MacOSX; Format drive in disk utility as FAT
run DuetToHDD on the USB Key (using the disk identifier found in disk utility)
copy files from the archive of XPC 0.83.05
( I'm not sure if the DuetToHDD part is needed, as there's a small installer called XPC Boot Prepare )

Hope this helps fuel your desire to carry on :)

In Topic: How to install OSX Lion Preview

Also checked there, there's only one instance of it (found with spotlight) and it's not there. Trying other loaders. Notably the newest XPC 0.83.82 (i'm in their IRC channel), not really hardly any talk, letalone assistance.

I'm still finding out information from assorted sources, but can only assume that one of the reasons it's not installing is through 'modelling', IE macpro8,1 when maybe that's incompatible... Kinda hit a brick wall, too much information out there, just making sense of ANY of it, is quite an acheievement really.

Just a heads up, Thanks to this hread, I nailed OSX 10.6.7 so easily, it was wonderful!.
I've not updated my BIOS to FF yet, so will have to do that (Notable change is support for 3TB HDDs).

Also, Just in case anyone knows, I've been working on getting 10.7 (dev preview 2) to work, and I'm successful upto the part where you pick the language, and click continue, it complains about it not being able to be installed :'(

Upon lots of reading, it's supposedly something about a PlatformSupport.plist (which amusingly I cannot find). I've asked about on the forum, and hope at some point to contribute to a thread on getting our board OSX10.7 successful <3
