Lion on Lenovo X60s?

22 July 2012 - 11:31 PM

Hi,

I am trying to install Lion on 10.7.2 on a Lenovo Thinkpad X60s, to no avail:

Specs:
- Intel Core Duo L2300(1.5GHz), L2400(1.66GHz), L7400(1.5GHz)
- 2Gb DDR2 ram
- Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 Graphics Card
- Intel wireless
- Intel PRO/1000 Lan

I have tried installing with myHack (10.7.2 and 10.8.1/10.8.5 GM), iAtkos L2 10.7.2 and i Boot. With each one I am getting a kernel panic (system uptime in nanoseconds), as show in the attached picture.
To clarify, I have AHCI enabled. As far HPET stretches or S3, I can't seem to locate it in the BIOS.

What I have tried:

Flags: -x, -v, cpus=1 and GraphicsEnabler=No

I can't think that is that difficult to get it to run. The drivers for the wireless and network may be, but I can get around that if needed by installing a supported wireless card and get a usb to ethernet adapter. So as far as drivers stretches, I'm not that concerned at the moment, I just want to be able to get it to boot, so that I can install Lion or Mountain Lion.

Take note, that with the screenshot attached, my boot flags is (in order): "GraphicsEnabler=No -v -x debug=0x100"

Any help or suggestions will be greatly appreciated!

Lion and Windows 7?

19 January 2012 - 07:20 AM

Hi,

I have installed iAtkos L2 10.7.2. Works awesome! My Lion works without any problem.

Just one thing, I would also like to dual-boot with Windows 7. The reason for this, is gaming. If it wasn't for that, I would use Parrallels (will probably still for the odd windows app). But how do I go about running both.

Currently I have my whole 500Gb assigned on Lion (1 Partition, GUID Table, Mac OS Extended Journaled). I would like to shrink Lion to about 300Gb and then use the left over 200Gb for Windows 7. In theory it sounds simple, but as far as I know, if I go and install Windows 7 right now, won't it overwrite my current boot loader (Chameleon 2.0.0 RC5) and make it unable to boot into Lion?

Is there any way of doing this, without having to reformat, install Windows 7 first and then reinstall Lion?
When I first installed lion, I used GUID partition table and wasn't sure what MBR was going to do when I installed Lion, as well as how good GUID is going to work with Windows 7, so I decided to skip Windows 7, only to come back now and wonder how can I dual-boot both

Does anybody have any suggestions or links they can point me to?
I would really appreciate it, since this is the only thing that is still keeping me from my dream Mac :)

Sapphire 6870 on Lion?

18 January 2012 - 11:37 AM

Hi,

I successfully installed Lion 10.7.2 on my Asus P8H67-V, with Sound and Network working so far (can't be bothered at the moment with Sleep and USB3, first want to get my graphics up and running)

For this build I used iAtkos L2 10.7.2, without selecting anything before installation.

Unfortunately after the install, when I tried to boot, it loaded (showed the Apple logo) and after a while totally went black and stayed that way (screen lost signal). Initially I though there was something wrong with the build, but then realized it could be my graphics card, which indeed was the case. So I removed the Sapphire, started up with success and installed all the drivers etc. When it was time to install my graphics card, I located a 6870 kext on osx86.net (well 4 kexts in one file actually - ATI6000Controller, ATIFramebuffer, ATISupport and ATY_Init). I installed via Kext Wizard and shutdown my mac, plugged in the Sapphire and started-up. Only problem is, black screen again.

I tried: "GraphicsEnabler=Yes" and "PCIRootUID=1", but still no joy.

I saw that all XFX 6870 are supported natively, but currently I have a Sapphire (can't imagine that the two is that much different). Does somebody perhaps have a solution for me or any advice?

I would appreciate it very much :wink_anim:

Kind Regards

Best Motherboard to get?

28 August 2011 - 02:58 PM

Hi,

I'm planning on buying a motherboard to put OSX Lion on. What Asus motherboard would be the best to get/most supported? I am getting a Intel i5 2500k and planning on using the built-in HD3000 graphics until I can can get my 6850/6950. Can anyone recommend any good Asus motherboards that will work very easy/out of the box with OSX Lion (or already has a guide/kext files). I don't really care about sleep (since my PC is on all the time), my main stuff that should work is graphics, sound and ethernet. Any help would be greatly appreciated Posted Image
