  1. My scores with DP1/DP2 was ~the same. And I have ATI card.
  2. Hardware acceleration is fully supported 10.7.1, HD4850
  3. @Goron I'm also using AD2000B.kext (huge thanks to The KiNG) with codecid for AD1988B, BUT since AppleHDA has changed in Lion (it will be the same also in 10.6.8) you can't use legacy kext. Instead you have to copy (replace) sections from Info.plist to appropriate files in Lion's AppleHDA.kext. These are layoutXX.xml (layout12.xml in our case) and Platforms.xml in AppleHDA.kext/Contents/Resources/. Also (if I'm not mistaking) to AppleHDA.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleHDAHardwareConfigDriver.kext/Contents/Info.plist. Info was posted here.
  4. @Goron You have done something wrong. These two dsdt sections are basically identical. Also did you try kext with your dsdt? Actually it should be enough with this: Device (HDEF) { Name (_ADR, 0x001B0000) Method (_DSM, 4, NotSerialized) { Store (Package (0x04) { "layout-id", Buffer (0x04) { 0x0C, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00 }, "PinConfigurations", Buffer (Zero) {} }, Local0) DTGP (Arg0, Arg1, Arg2, Arg3, RefOf (Local0)) Return (Local0) } } Hmm, just remembered that it's not a good idea to copy/paste from codebox
  5. For AD1988B. With this in DSDT: Device (HDEF) { Name (_ADR, 0x001B0000) Method (_DSM, 4, NotSerialized) { Store (Package (0x08) { "subsystem-id", Buffer (0x04) { 0xA0, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00 }, "subsystem-vendor-id", Buffer (0x04) { 0x6B, 0x10, 0x00, 0x00 }, "layout-id", Buffer (0x04) { 0x0C, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00 }, "PinConfigurations", Buffer (Zero) {} }, Local0) DTGP (Arg0, Arg1, Arg2, Arg3, RefOf (Local0)) Return (Local0) } }
  6. As far as I can tell, for now it is NOT possible to install Lion directly to MBR partitioned disk. One can only install it on GPT partitioned disk and then clone to MBR partition. As since 10.6.x to install on MBR we need two things: remove checks in OSInstall.mpkg AND have patched OSInstall framework. Latter apparently need binary patching, but I was unable to find info about what exactly need to be done, there is only some prepatched versions for 10.6.x floating around.
  7. iStat widget works for me. I think there's problem with menuextra because I tryed MenuMeters and also failed. Don't know about memory, shows all my 4GB in 64bit. Edit: Sorry, overlooked. Activity Monitor reports 3.25GB of installed 4GB
  8. Why bother with mount/chown/kextload? It's even impossible for me because I'm using PS2 keyboard. Just put all extensions you need in /S/L/E, remove kernelcache and Extensions.mkext from /System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup to make sure it loads all extensions. I used only kexts for PS2 and fakesmc to install. I also edited Info.plist in ATI4800Controller with my HD4850 devid, otherwise I can't get GUI working. After install boot again from your install media, open terminal and copy extensions you need to your Lion partition. Now you can boot up your fresh Lion and enjoy.

    How to boost the OS X boot process...

    Well, I can't remember what it was back then, maybe it was AsereBLN or AnVAL, maybe something else. Now I'm using latest official trunk with hardcoded checksum of kernel cache as there's still no solution to get it on the fly. IMHO Adler32 is not getting right values to work with, should be "boot-device-path" and "boot-file" according to Apple sources. http://www.opensource.apple.com/source/kex...extcache_main.c Sadly I'm not a coder As for Geekbench score, it's always +/- the same, drops only if power management is not working and CPU speed locks at 2GHz.

    How to boost the OS X boot process...

    I see different numbers in kernel.log. For example: Aug 20 18:26:52 localhost kernel[0]: vm_page_bootstrap: 964981 free pages and 83595 wired pages And today: Dec 25 01:47:34 localhost kernel[0]: vm_page_bootstrap: 1021899 free pages and 18485 wired pages Though it is with different flavours of Chameleon. "Waiting for DSMOS..." sometimes is there, sometimes not. Dec 25 01:52:47 Macintosh kernel[0]: Waiting for DSMOS... Dec 25 01:52:54 Macintosh kernel[0]: DSMOS has arrived Note that there is other host name when "Waiting for DSMOS..." line is present.

    AnVAL (ACPI Loader)

    Yes, c-states are in place with alpha4. Speedstep is working as it should.

    AnVAL (ACPI Loader)

    That was exactly what I did to test.
