    Lion on Dell XPS M1330 Hangs everytime i boot...

    What error does it hang on? (Boot with -v)

    CPU core i3 2100

    No, you have to use a PCI-E graphics card for now.

    Is it worth moving to Lion GM now?

    Yeah I'm loving Lion on my hackintosh.

    Bootable dvd from Mac OS X Base System?

    Don't burn DVD's - just use Disk Utility to create bootable partitions on hard drives or flash disks - much easier and faster.

    Fresch GM installation - what's needed

    Well you can do it if you have a real Mac or another hackintosh only. [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] and [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] are really for Snow Leopard only, [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] does have many kexts that work with Lion though. There are basically two things you need to boot Lion: Chameleon bootloader, some extra files. You need the latest version or quite a new version of chameleon to boot Lion, that's all.

    Chameleon will not start

    One way to fix it is without reinstallation to plug it into a real mac, or another hackintosh, and reinstall chameleon.

    Leohazard WONT BOOT

    You may really struggle with that setup, I'm afraid OS X runs best on Intel hardware.

    Try to generate a DSDT with mald0n's own DSDT generator!

    Hackintosh . Frustrated

    Well basically your graphics card is what's holding you back. As you say the 3870 is not supported in Snow Leopard, for some weird reason! The triakis bit in the error refers to the triakis driver, which was the ATi 3870 I think. And even if you did get it to boot, you don't want to run OS X without graphics acceleration, trust me. So two options: 1. try Leopard - 10.5.8, which will probably work with full acceleration. 2. Get another graphics card. Many cards are supported, nVidia and ATi. I recommend the 5850 as it's a brilliantly fast and quiet card, but even an 8400GS works great.

    Lion installation via USB stick using Chameleon

    If you have access to a real Mac, installation can be really easy! Step 1: Install Lion with real Mac. Step 2: Install a new build of Chameleon RC5 with Fakesmc.kext at least in /Extra That's it!
  12. Synaesthesia

    Chameleon v2.1 (Main Trunk)

    Then you have to install via terminal - instructions are in the readme.

    DSDT Auto-Patcher

    Hi Mald0n. I wonder if you can help me. I would be ever so grateful. My system, if that's important: Intel DP55WB Motherboard Core i7 870 8gb RAM ATi 5850. Everything works perfectly except sleep, and I still need to use NullCPUPowermanagement. I had been using the following DSDT file DSDT_Intel_BOXDP55WB.aml.zip I removed that and ran your app. Here is the send_me file. Thanks again! send_me.zip

    Mac OS X Lion (Developer Preview) Released

    The Windows tool does a much better job! I also haven't gotten the Duettohdd thing working in OS X.
