  1. I wonder if I should try to create the USB thumb drive on my Mac Mini and not on my Core i7 hackintosh that is running SL. That is, perhaps the install scripts grabbed some files/kexts from the hackintosh that is causing the problem. By using my Mac Mini, any customized files will be the result of the lionize script. I'll try this later tonight when I have chance and respond back as to the success/failure of this attempt.
  2. I'm still have problems. I ran the isntall, rebooted (with chameleon verbose mode on) and I get the error that is attached to the screen shot. Looks like it could be related to AppleUSBCDC, AppleHDAWidget or some sort of ACPI_SMC_PlatformPlugin
  3. I think I got around the issue - not entirely sure why but when I add the -v boot flag, it booted up into the installer. CPU intel core i7-930 Nvidia GTX 260, 6gb of ram OWC SSD (to be my boot drive) 500 gb hard drive (which has Snow Leopard on it) I'll add my hardware to my sig shortly.
  4. I'm having issues with getting this to work on my system. Basically I'm getting the little spinning disk on the boot logo (see the attached image). I'm running a P6T (non-deluxe, non-SE). I have Snow Leopard running on it successfully. I have tried and was able to install the iATKOS_L2 but I'm having some minor issues, so I wanted to see if this install would work or be more compatible. I selected the P6T option, the Lionize script seemed to work as intended. I'm not sure where to start looking how what could be the culprit Any help will be greatly appreciated. Mike
  5. Thanks, I got iATKOS and that seem to work by and large. I'm still testing it out, but I was able to install 11D42 (beta of 10.7.3) without any problems. The only one issue appears to be sleep. The computer refuses to go into sleep and if the monitor does go into sleep, I get can't wake it I found this thread http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=253992 that may help my sleep issues. I haven't had time to see if patching the kext will resolve it but its an encouraging sign
  6. Thanks, I'll take a look at that.
  7. I have a fully functioning Snow Leopard hackintosh however, I'd like to go to Lion as I'm running the on my MacBook Pro. My question is this: Is it feasible for me to get Lion working this set up or am I better suited with a new mobo (and maybe cpu I have a core i7-970)? I've been searching the net and I've really not found too much specific instructions for installing Lion on a P6T motherboard. For SnowLeopard the guides for the P6T Deluxe and P6T SE versions did not work, but I eventually did find one that worked. Thanks Mike
  8. I just tried this link, and couldn't believe how easy it was. I struggled to get SL on my i7 930/P6T and with the fleebailey33 guide, I was up in running in no time. I'm downloading the 10.6.4 update, and hopefully that doesn't break anything. Woo hoo
  9. SL is the first version of OSX that is intel only. Apple dropped support for the PPC on 10.6 so there's no PPC frameworks included, meaning that there's no way to get it to work.
  10. Thanks for the heads up, I was wondering about that myself. I didn't know that the as200b would be better, but I've seen a number of posts about audio issues with the alc889.
  11. I am leaning towards ASUS, and I'm trying to decide if I want the P6X58-Premium, P6X58D-E or the P6T Deluxe though I'm leaning towards the P6X58 (-E or Premium).
  12. I'm also a newbie but one thing that sticks out to me is your GPU. I'm not sure if the 470 GPU is compatible with OSX.
  13. Awesome thanks Yikes, the recent comments over at NewEgg have me rethinking this MB choice, while some of the recent posts are related to its inability to run with a hex-core, I see a high percentage of DOA, bent pins etc. These types of comments was why I gravitated over to Asus but my current MB the P6T isn't as compatible as I first believed it would be.
  14. Thanks, for the info. I've only found guides/info for the X58-UD5 and not the X58A-UD5. Is the X58a markedly different then its older brother? I found two guides, one was the katewalk method which looked like it was right up my alley and the other which was a little more involved. My main concern for the kakewalk method is that the X58A-UD5 is not specifically mentioned in the thread, just the X58-UD5
  15. The says it all, I'm looking for a motherboard that will be fairly compatible to OSX with a minimum of custom/kexts. Based on some searching these two seem pretty good. From what I've seen on this site, the Gigabyte MB seems to have the least amount of work needed to get OSX to run, but it appears the Asus MB may not be bad. Thoughts/opinions/suggestions thanks Mike
