    My Guide to Lion installation

    I have been kindly asked to expand the guide: 1a: Open "InstallESD.dmg" (the file you find inside MAS Lion Installer) 1b: In Terminal.app type: open /Volumes/Mac\ OS\ X\ Install\ ESD/BaseSystem.dmg 1c: Open Carbon Copy Cloner and clone Mac OS Base System to the 8GB Thumb drive making sure you tweak CCC to overwrite any content on destination drive. It won't be bbotable until you also copy "mach_kernel" file. 1d: Copy kernel to USB drive. cp /Volumes/Mac\ OS\ X\ Install\ ESD/mach_kernel /Volumes/THUMB_DRIVE_NAME 1e: On the Thumb Drive delete the link to the "Packages" folder located in"System\Installation" and empty the recycle bin. 1f: Copy from "Mac OS X Install ESD" the "Packages Folder in the folder you previously deleted the link. (approx. 4GiB of data) 1g: Reboot your Mac to make sure USB Stick will boot. If it doesn't try repairing permission on USB drive. Reply here if you have any doubts!
  2. Hi there, hello from Italy. I decided to write this because I found very specific guides for many M/B but I needed something less specific: It involves rBoot from tonymacx86.com, a USB stick, a pre-edited DSTD file and [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] 4.0.x Lion Edition. 1: Prepare a bootable 8GB USB Stick with Lion setup on it. Many guides can be found. I recommend using Carbon Copy Cloner to clone DMG to USB Stick. Disk Utility often fails! 2: Boot your Hackintosh with rBoot (I used version 1.0.0). 3: Boot the Stick and install Lion from there. 4: Run [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] with EasyDSDT or User DSDT if you have your pre-edited file. 5: Select appropriate drivers, reboot and test your new machine! I made this guide because on tonymacx86.com they don't infringe Apple SLA/EULA by making you buy or transfer a paid copy of your Lion setup then make partitions then use xMove etc etc. Boring. That's the shortest path. My config: GA-P67A-D3-B3 (less than 100€), Core i5-2500, 8 GB 1333MHz (not the top I know...), Samsung 64GB SSD 470 Series. Hope this helps K
  3. I followed every step, but I got stuck at the "blinking" cursor screen. Before Applying the Extra folder and your pkg the USB drive normally boots when attached to my MacBook Pro I use for operations. So the USB key is OK, right? I don't see the "erase destination" box to untick, I'm on Lion 10.7.1. What am I missing? O.o Config: P8P67 B3, i5-2500 8GB DDR3 1333MHz (for now, I'll get 1600+ MHz DIMMs) THANKS for your precious work! K
  4. I'm very interested in your tests, I'm going to buy this board too, maybe not the HD version...

    X700 and other PCIE ATI Radeon finally work

    Noone has an idea for my case? The koverg's patch doesn't work, ut the JaS' patch for GMA900 works perfectly. Great job, I was just curious to try my X550...

    X700 and other PCIE ATI Radeon finally work

    Hi, I'm new to this forum, and I write from Italy! I just tried to install this patch on my system: PD 2,66GHz/533/1M - Asus P5GD1-VM, X550 256MB (the one listed in the first post"), but I had no luck with both Jas' and MyZar installs. I never tried hacking any .kext MacOS X file, but I sometimes work in linux, the commands are almost the same... So: do I miss something? Patch works, (2 code segments changed) is there a step I miss? I even tried to delete kextcache and rebuild a new one with kexkcache -k command. Nothing changed, always No Kext Loaded in the profiler. Card ID is 0x5B63. Can anyone help me? I've also read 32 pages of this post, so... Where do I get wrong??? Thanks in advance from Italy!
