  1. Chris, same here. Driving me up a wall... Hopefully someone can figure out why. I am reading that the root cause is the ethernet is not showing up as built in even tho it is en0 and chameleon has <key>EthernetBuiltIn</key> <string>Yes</string>
  2. No go for me still app stope iclud issues LatinMcG how'd you do with the opti 755 you have?
  3. Bios updated to A21... trying a few things will report.
  4. I tried both kexts with same results and I havent tried A21 I running A19 might try that tonight I have to install some kind of windows or use a live xp cd off hiren's boot cd or something... Worth a shot since nothing else works. I'll post results once I test.
  5. try getting into the installer using CPUS=1 I was successful getting to install from the iatkos l2 using that flag
  6. This is so frustrating... I might just go out and buy a OOB compatible mobo just to get this working... I really have no idea what to do to get the app store and icloud to work.
  7. I have a macbook air and a sata to usb cable, I'm back up.
  8. OK so I followed your instructions and got a kernel panic once I entered the key SystemId & string into the org.chameleon.Boot.plist I then was able to boot after I used -v -s to boot and now it shows up in the IODeviceTree with my mac address at the end. Still cant log in to app store or iCloud. Any other Ideas? Here's my plist <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>Boot Graphics</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>EthernetBuiltIn</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>GraphicsEnabler</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>Kernel</key> <string>mach_kernel</string> <key>SystemId</key> <string>44454c4c-5700-1056-8059-001e4ff58e15</string> <key>SystemType</key> <string>1</string> <key>Timeout</key> <string>5</string> <key>npci</key> <string>0x2000</string> </dict> </plist> Just tried the imac 9,1 in smbios with random serial still get "an unknown error occurred" logging into app store I think the SFF might be a different setup as the normal tower. <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>SMbiosdate</key> <string>01/14/09</string> <key>SMbiosvendor</key> <string>Apple Inc.</string> <key>SMbiosversion</key> <string>IM91.88Z.008D.B00.0901142258</string> <key>SMboardproduct</key> <string>Mac-F2218EC8</string> <key>SMfamily</key> <string>iMac</string> <key>SMmanufacturer</key> <string>Apple Inc.</string> <key>SMproductname</key> <string>iMac9,1</string> <key>SMserial</key> <string>CK9284360TF</string> <key>SMsystemversion</key> <string>1.0</string> </dict> </plist>
  9. I do have ethernet listed as en0 and it works and I have tried multiple serial numbers from the generator in chameleon wizard... all to no avail. I truly think it has something to do with dsdt since I'm using one that was generic and I can;t figure out how to extract/edit my own no matter how many examples I stare at lol.. I will check out your guide to see if that helps I havent seen anything in my searches relating to raid but it's worth a shot. I'll post the results tonight. Thanks for the replies guys. Oh I forgot to add I tried the dsdt files that people posted here from other optiplex 755 machines but there seems to be different models (SFF, and different mobos) I never got any that worked for me out of this thread all made my system either (SWOD at startup, KP, or my system was not affected at all) i got all kinds of results but nothing that fixed any issues. Maybe it has something to do with my bios version being a bit higher? I am running A19
  10. I also have an Optiplex 755 (not the small form factor) and I'm a FAIL at understanding how DSDT works I'm running... Bios Ver. A19 Intel Core 2 Duo 2.66GHZ Gigabit Ethernet using (AppleIntelE1000e.kext) Mac OS X Lion 10.7.4 (11E53) Just installed Lion using iatkos l2, everything works ok (including sleep surprisingly) except icloud and app store (I'm guessing because of my dsdt not being correct), and the VoodooHDA 7.3.2 enabled sound started giving pops and buzzing out of the speakers after I installed my ATI 6xxx (OOB compatible card) (Audio shows in Sys. Info app as not built in) I wish I can pay someone to straighten this out because the whole DSDT editing is uber confusing for me and I just dont have the time to dedicate to learning right now. If anyone is willing to help me out, or use logmein and check out my system & apply some fixes to get me going, I'll gladly paypal you some bucks
