    Lion bootloader help: GT430 and CI/QE support

    Okay. I ran Chameleon Wizard again, this time pointing it at my "Install" partition. Now it boots up into my Lion partition and I have full QE/CI support! Still not sure about what to do with Windows, though. Do I attempt a repair?

    Lion bootloader help: GT430 and CI/QE support

    Okay, I downloaded Chameleon Wizard from this thread and ran it using all of its default settings except that I checked GraphicsEnabler. After reboot, everything is the same. I'm wondering if this has anything to do with the fact that my first OS X drive ("Install") is where my bootloader is currently stored, and the Wizard might be trying to do stuff to the "Lion" partition. Thoughts? What in the wizard should I be looking to change?

    Lion bootloader help: GT430 and CI/QE support

    I'm sure - when I boot to my Lion drive via my installed bootloader, I get no Dashboard ripples and Steam won't launch Portal, it says it can't find a support graphics card. When I boot to my Lion drive via whatever bootloader is configured on the Kakewalk flash drive, I have Dashboard ripples and Portal launches and plays fine. I will try this. Thanks!
  4. I have the setup shown in my signature. I have the following partition configuration on a 1TB drive: 1 EFI disk0s1 2 Install disk0s2 3 Lion disk0s3 4 Windows disk0s4 "Install" is a plain, working 10.7.0 installation. "Lion" is my main 10.7.2 partition. "Windows" is my Windows 7 partition. Right now, the active boot file is on the Install drive. After installing Windows 7, I was able to restore the ability to boot into OS X by following these instructions. I have found two things. 1. If I try and select the Windows partition from the bootloader, it now tells me that booting Windows has failed and wants me to repair it. I'm afraid that repairing it will wipe out my current bootloader. Thoughts? 2. If I boot via the bootloader installed on my computer, I have no CI/QE support. But if I insert the Kakewalk USB drive and use its bootloader to load my Lion partition, suddenly I have perfect CI/QE support. What files am I looking for on the Kakewalk drive to copy over so that I can have my graphics card supported? Thanks!
  5. I ended up going right into Lion using the Kakewalk method: http://www.tonymacx86.com/viewtopic.php?f=54&t=32592 I haven't started in with Win7 yet, but still plan on it.
  6. I don't have an "Installation" folder in my System/Library directory: And according to the how-to that you and I both linked to, I'm looking for a System/Installation folder. Where exactly should my Installation folder be? I do have a "Packages" folder but it's in the root directory of the flash drive, as pictured.
  7. Awesome, thanks for the guidance!
  8. There are several "[url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]" options on the Downloads page of kexts.com; which one would you suggest?
  9. I've been out of the OSX86 game for a while...my last Hackintosh ran 10.4.6. I'm trying to get back in now, but of course everything has changed! Equipment: Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-H67MA-USB3-B3 Processor: Intel Core i5-2500K Optical drive: LG WH12LS30 Blu-Ray burner Hard drive: Seagate ST31000526V 1TB 6GB/s SATA Memory: G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) Graphics card: Asus nVidia GeForce GT430 As it sits right now, the graphics card is not installed, and I've only installed one 4GB stick of RAM. The machine will boot and install Windows 7 Ultimate without issue. I have available to me a Mac Mini running Lion and the Lion install image. I imaged it onto a flash drive and used that flash drive to install Lion onto a MacBook. I've tried following this guide to get Lion installed, but it references a folder on the flash drive that I imaged the Lion install disc to that I can't find: I don't see an Installation folder. I ran the Extra_Lion_DP4 and Chameleon RC5 on the flash drive. I'm booting from an [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] CD. It successfully finds the Lion flash drive, but upon boot it immediately kernel panics and hangs with the final line saying "System uptime in nanoseconds: #######" (real numbers in there, of course). Some of the other lines include: Can't load kext com.psystar.driver.OpenHaltRestart - failed to resolve library dependencies Kext com.psystar.driver.OpenHaltRestart (error 0xdc00800e). panic(cpu 0 caller 0x672801): "Unable to find driver for this platform: \"ACPI\".\n"@/SourceCache/xnu/xnu-1699.22.64/iokit/Kernel/IOPlatformExpert.cpp:1504 Etc. If other lines might be relevant let me know and I'll post those, too. Any suggestions on which direction to head? Is there something I'm doing wrong with the flash drive? Do I need to try a different install method? Thanks!

    has anyone been able to install SL on a D945GCLF

    I found your blog and followed it as best as I could, but I'm stuck. Here's what I did: - Restored my SL DVD onto an 8 GB flash drive - Found the DSDT.aml file for the D945GCLF2 that you linked to - Ran the operations on that file - Ran the 2_SnowLeoInstaller script on my flash drive - Set my motherboard to boot from the flash drive I can boot from the USB drive and get to the "Select Language" screen, but as soon as I select a language it kernel panics. Any suggestions? Starting up in verbose mode didn't help me. Could it be something I'm doing wrong with the DSDT file? Thanks.
  11. I just put JaS's 10.4.6 on it, never had a reason to do any more. As far as apps go, just iLife '06, web browsers, etc, no professional apps.
  12. I'm located at zip code 50010. I'd like to wait a bit and see if I can get a bit more.
  13. I'm selling my hackintosh and a few other things in hopes of reducing my computers to a single machine. Specs: -2.6GHz Pentium 4 506 Prescott Processor -MSI 915GVM3-V -1GB Super Talent DDR2 533MHz RAM -160GB Seagate SATA hard drive -Antec Overture Silent HTPC case -DVD-ROM drive All this needs is a TV tuner and you'd have a perfect home theater PC. I originally put it together for that purpose but it was so much faster than my old computer that I used it for everything. I've run XP, Vista, Ubuntu, MythTV, and probably more on it, but for the most part it's been my main machine running OS X for day to day use. It runs quite cool and it's very very quiet, quieter than my roommate's towers and even his laptop at times. I'm asking $240+shipping via Paypal (I'll probably stick to US only for simplicity). If it doesn't sell right away I'll entertain reasonable offers. Please email me at: mtgustaffb at gmail dot com if you are interested.
