    Apple Lion 10.7 on Asus P5k-E AP/Wifi

    Hi Tuen Can you help me out? I've had several attempts at your method. This is as far as I get: EDIT: removed screenshot It hangs at IOAPIC: Version...... Any ideas? EDIT: Put in a new DSDT and installer now loads up. EDIT #2: Thanks Tuen! Your guide works. The only bad news is that Lion broke my Broadcom Airport.

    No war yet. The Playbook is vapour ware. Lets wait and see what actually gets shipped, and more importantly, when.
  3. Very interesting. from the Axon-Logic website:
  4. Glad that this guide is working good for you. I put Fakesmc in /Extra/Extensions I haven't had to bother with UUID stuff. Yeah, Snow Leopard works incredibly well on this mobo. BTW, the 3rd party wifi card I use is a broadcom 43xx. Always works.
  5. I think its the IDE drive, but I could be wrong. Unfortunately, I can't troubleshoot the issue for you, as I don't have IDE. The best way for this install method is two SATA HDDs. A USB drive will work as well. To edit your com.apple.Boot.plist, you can open it with textedit. The best way is with nano or pico in terminal. This is beyond the scope of this install guide, so you'll have to do your own research. HDA = High Definition Audio. If you can afford to, I suggest you buy a small cheap SATA drive, or an external USB drive. It will save you hours of wasted time and aggravation. Or perhaps try one of the "pure vanilla" installs, but those methods usually require a USB thumb drive.
  6. Next time, after you reboot, proceed to the next step. That should work.
  7. My sleep/sound/icons DSDT: DSDT.aml.zip
  8. @shinemac: My guess is that you forgot to login in to terminal correctly. Type sudo -s enter, followed by password. @paddy159: I don't know for sure, because I use SATA DVD. My kext pack included what I believe is the patched Jmicron kext, but maybe it doesn't work for IDE, or maybe you need to configure your drive differently in BIOS. Sorry, can't really help you there. Maybe someone else can chime in with the IDE DVD fix.
  9. When I say the solution is not the "one for you", its because that error usually is an indication of something going wrong. You should not get that error, and unfortunately, I don't know exactly what causes that one. You need to unmount the EFI volume before you do the next step. All I can suggest is maybe rebooting. When you log in again, the EFI volume should be unmounted. You could then proceed to the next step.
  10. shinemac, I've only had that error when I forgot to run the chameleon RC2 installer. Run the installer again.
  11. Hmm, not sure, but the advice to use caps is out there. Maybe things are different on a Mac Hack.
  12. Totally weird. I have an 8800GT card (on one of 3 P5KEwifi that I have), and haven't ever even heard of the problem, much less experienced it. Chipset Model: nVidia GeForce 8800 GT Type: GPU Bus: PCIe PCIe Lane Width: x16 VRAM (Total): 512 MB Vendor: NVIDIA (0x10de) Device ID: 0x0611 Revision ID: 0x00a2 ROM Revision: nVidia GeForce 8800 GT OpenGL Engine [EFI] Displays: DELL E228WFP: Resolution: 1680 x 1050 @ 60 Hz Pixel Depth: 32-Bit Color (ARGB8888) Main Display: Yes Mirror: Off Online: Yes Rotation: Supported Display Connector: Status: No Display Connected Anyway, I thought I post up snoc's DSDT HDD icon fix here: 1. decompile your DSDT.aml, or find the .dsl file for you dsdt. 2. open DSDT.dsl in textedit 3. under edit, use find...then edit (by inserting) the below code: ****************************** find DEVICE (SATA) right after Name (REGF, One) ****************************** Method (_DSM, 4, NotSerialized) { Store (Package (0x02) { "device-id", Buffer (0x04) { 0x81, 0x26, 0x00, 0x00 } }, Local0) DTGP (Arg0, Arg1, Arg2, Arg3, RefOf (Local0)) Return (Local0) } ********************** before Method (_REG, 2, NotSerialized) ********************** 4. Compile and use. need a compiler/decompiler? Google iaslMe
  13. @chrisb27: No worries, its me that misunderstood (I think!) Oh well, anyway, I don't understand that difference in the code that you've posted, but it wouldn't hurt to try it on a spare HD. @ spanakorio : Yes, you still need the kext, which is included in the linked download. @ocZZZ: I'm not having a mouse lag issue and I'm not sure what that has to do with Parallels, as I don't run it. With Chameleon, I boot right into windows, not the same I guess, but gets me both OS on one computer. Mixing and matching older components of OSX is always risky. I feel your pain, as over the years I have hosed countless installs. These days I back up my important stuff before making risky changes. Often I boot from a reserve drive to recover files if I have lost the ability to boot. HDDs are cheap these days, it pays for itself in no time. As for this guide v2.0, it works very well, I have tested it extensively. The install is easy, and should always work. Patching the DSDT is complicated, and where the problems getting sound/HDD icons/sleep to work usually are.
