  1. Hello everyone! I am new to the forum and to hackintoshing.. but after a couple of weeks and sleepless nights I managed to install Lion 10.7.3 on my PC, as follows: Intel foxconn motherboard DG31PR Intel Core 2 Duo E6550 2.4 ghz 2 x 2GB DDR 2 800Mhz Kingmax 1 x PciE Nvidia Gigabyte GT 550TI 1024mb/192 bit 2 x 250 GB Western Digital HDD 1 x 80 GB Caviar HDD ( Lion Install ) 1 x DvdWr LG 22'' BenQ HD LCD I'm sorry if it's a long post but I want to ease the help that I can get and make you guys undesrtand the build. I installed off a bootable DVD with Chimera built in to it. Normal install. Boot master record ( because I want to dual boot into windows 7 as well just in case), etc.. I installed : Chimera, voodoo hda old bit stable kext for audio, my network card from there also, the and pretty much that's it. I enabled Graphics Enabler without any other kext for video. The system installed fine, 20 something minutes, rebooted..and booted again from dvd and then from HDD Lion. When I got @ the desktop I had sound, network and basic graphics ( no QI/CE enabled). My video card was also recognized as GT 550TI but as with 1532 mb instead of 1024( it's cosmetics..i don't care). Also , my core 2 duo was recognized but as SOLO cpu ( Intel Core 2 Duo E6550 Solo CPU - weird-). I opend one of the latest editions of Chameleon and installed the bootloader to HDD so I can boot from it. I opened up BIOS and modified it from 3.1 to 8,1 as it's the closest match to my configuration. I then opened ###### and selected [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] ( i think sorry can't remember..it's the first one at the top) and system utilities and installed. I then Opened OSX86TOOLS and enabled from there QI/CE ..as it was saying that it is disabled. After that I rebooted. On reboot I got a kernel panic and frooze.. it was refering to Bluetooth.. flags and safe mode..or any flag couldn't help so..i looked around and decided to disable through single user mode and then delete the kext for bluetooth. Done! Superb! Powered on: Quart and hardware accelaration enabled.. ripple effect..chess..etc. all was ok. Sound, networks..the works. Rebooted again just to be sure, result = OK! Then I shut it down. Just to be sure When powering it back on I got a CPU 0 KP ( i will post a pic of it ) and I don't know why ..but I restarted the pc and booted again but with Flag : -f . That being said everyting works ok now! Superb even.. I love my Mac PC .. even if it's fot the first time that I am using a mac OS ..but it's already my favourite..it's so intuitive.. But the problem..cosmetic one really, remains that I have to Always type -f when booting the Mac OS. Without it I get the same KP (pic to follow when I get home). If anybody who had the patience to read through all this ( I doubt that ) ) can give me a hand with this KP or flag ..that would be great. I know the flag refers to :-f = Tells the machine to reload all kext and dump the boot configuration cache, (kext cache found in: /System/Library/Extensions.mkext, you can delete it manually and the system will recreate it). I am afraid to make any changes on my own. I finnaly managed to get it working after 15 something installs..and really at the end of my patience regarding that. So sugest something that doesn't mean a full reinstall or any chance of the system not booting up p.s. No dsdt. I had one but in previous installs last week they never helped me. KPs..a lot of them..all after installing the dsdt. no qe/ci either..so.. yeah..that's it. Help me or don't..but i'd rather you did
  2. Hello Rockinron_1.. Thanks for the suggestions. From these I can surely say now that: 1. Am very sure that the HDD is formated in HFS journeled extended guid mode ( twice ) 2. The smbios I picked was 8,1 I think , cause 9.1 (Imac) was with ddr3 and I think ati instead of Nvidia which I have. So the bios had my ram, processor.and pretty much ok with it. It is the same smbios I used for previous instalation this week (and worked). 3. I am going to go into bios now and edit when I get back, but the settings that are now enabled are the same that I had when I managed to install ML..so i don't know:( I'll be back..going into BIOS NOW p.s. Thank you very much for the support.and sorry about spelling but i'm very tired ..it;s 5 o;clock in the morning here:( EDIT: I went into BIOS but there isn't much I can change. I have no AHCI mode. It is set to automatic. I switched it to manual and tried with Legacy mode on and still I get the same error: can't install on this computer. I turned SATA off and the chameleon loads but then just boosts up a blank screen no lcd signal(video). So I turned SATA back on, switched to Native mode and ran again chameleon from usb and OS installer starts but same error appears. I'm left clueless. I used the same image as before, paid even more attention. Used newer 4.5 fakescm version nullcpupowermanagement. Hope you have another hint for me to try.. EDIT 2 Also I have found some info on MOBO: Apparently Sata mode is AHCI according to Intel http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/sb/CS-020811.htm#modes it's Native, allows all SATA devices (4) and 0 IDEs DG31PR Intel GMAX3100 Best Motherboard For MAC OS X!!!!!! Everything Works After Patching Sound & Video Card. On Install Use Cameleon 2.0 RC3 658 Package From Chameleon_2_RC3.zip Sound (ALC889) works with AppleHDA.kext, HDAEnabler.kext from dg31pr_snow.zip.

  3. Hello! If anyone could assist me in my issue ..would be great! here or @ lov3som3@gmail.com My pc is: Mobo -Intel Foxconn dg31pr Proc : E6550 - 2,33 ghz 2 mb l2 cache dvd-wr lg i think 2x 2gb kingmax ddr2 800 mhz nvidia 550 ti 1gb ddr5/192 bit I am using a KIngston 8GB usb stick I have followed the tutorial ( GREAT JOB btw !! ) and have managed to install yesterday OS X 10.8 on a separate HDD. Though I couldn't get it to boot from OS X HDD because of missing kext etc. Today I decided to take a fresh start. Followed the tutorial by letter:D and created the USB installation again, this time more carefuly with all kext and smbios and dsdt all in extra folder. I had no error while booting into the installation ( like before, no kext missing nothing) - the only flags were -v & -USBBusFix=Yes But when the installer starts up I get Exclamation mark error saying it can;t install on this computer. [ I used the same image as before to create the usb installation disk]. I tried clicking restore and then disk utility-fix-repair etc. All went well , no errors etc. I formated the {censored} again -extended guid partitioned. but after another attempt I get the same error ! Googleing has got me nowhere as a lot of people have this error because they are trying to restore with another mac disk on another pc. This is not the case for me. The image I used was the same as before, and I 've installing and reinstalling that old one since monday in the hope that it will eventually boot. Anyway, please help me on this issue. I am a begginer in hackintoshing or how it's called but I work in IT service..so get techy with me.. If i don't understand something I'll ask! Thank you!!!!
