  1. update: 12/12/12/ - i think i got this at 100% Hey guys I just installed iAtkos 10.7.2 on a HP Pavilion Elite M9040N and thought I'd share my results with you guys. FYI I am a complete noob so if i can do it, so can you. I used iAtkos 10.7.2 what works: Sound - works but has hissing sound when adjusting volume video w/ QE/CI - works sleep - works restart - works shut down - works wifi - works (attached files) LAN - works HDMI out - works USB - works Firewire - works keyboard & mouse - works card reader - works but recognized as usb processor doesn't display core 2 quad but ill live. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Ok first off I have the Asus IPIBL-LA motherboard with bios 5.07 -go in bios, set sata1 controller mode to AHCI Mode -Go to power Tab and Enable processor's XD Features -save and exit -boot the DVD -select partition and format Mac OS Extended (Journaled) -select customize before you install the DVD This is what i selected: -Bootloader - chameleon 2.1 Bootloader options - graphics enabler, built-in ethernet -Patches - FakeSMC, Disabler, RTC, EvOreboot -Drivers SATA/IDE - AHCI SATA Sound - VooDooHDA v2.7.3 USB - usb PS/2 This is all the things i checked. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- After OSX installs, install the attached file For Wifi: -extra file. -Place "RaWLAPI.framework" in Libaray/Frameworks/ -place "RT73USBWirelessDriver.kext" in System/Library/Extensions -repair permission -open WirelessUtility.app then search for your wifi. -add WirelessUtility.app to your apps -also a good idea to add to Login items. (system preferences, user & groups, click on admin and click on the login items at the top). ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- None of this is my work. It is just information I found over the internet. I got it almost at 100% so I thought I'd share so maybe it might help someone out. Good Luck!! UPDATE: 12/11/12 Installed 10.7.5 update throught software update and everything went smooth. still good. and i think this update fixed my sleep problem?? it started working all of a sudden. UPDATE: 12/12/12 Fixed LAN, Used hnak's AppleIntelE1000e.kext wifi-RT73_Lion.zip
