  1. Fermi 5XX works with Lion DP4/GM!

    Thanks! Really appreciate it (even if that wasn't in response to me).
  2. Fermi 5XX works with Lion DP4/GM!

    EDIT: I wound up installing fresh on another drive and all is well now. Hi everyone, So today I tried doing the 10.7.2 combo update (after cloning my HDD). My monitor only shows one resolution in the display preferences now, although in system info it identifies my GPU properly. I re-added my device id to NVDAGF100Hal.kext (1080, for the GTX580), made sure my org.chameleon.Boot.plist file had graphicsenabler set to yes, and added the empty Graphics entry that others have mentioned on here. Any ideas? I've seen a couple people mention using "ATY enabler" to get full-resolution working, but I haven't been able to dig up much on that, and some of it is pretty old. Thanks for any help! EDIT: Ok, so I installed ATY enabler, and now whenever I boot, it looks like it's loading at the proper resolution.. But it shows the login screen for a few moments, then goes to a black screen, then back to the login screen, repeat ad nauseam. I can boot fine with -x -v, but of course I don't have video acceleration then. Anybody have any ideas? I should add, I went to put my original drive back in my computer (I've been doing all this (the 10.7.2 update, etc) on the clone of my original drive), and it seems to have died (sounds horrible, so seems like a hardware fault). So, at this point I'm getting desperate since my clone is my only option at this point.
  3. Asus X58 Sabertooth here, with sleep/wake working great! Using DSDT found here: http://jeffsprotberry.com/theblog/2011/05/...x58-and-i7-950/
  4. I just got a working Lion install set up, and I'm curious how best to back it up. I've got a drive ready to go as a Time Machine backup. I'm curious if, should I break my system completely, I can restore this to the drive using the option to do so in the installer? In other words, will Time Machine get EVERYTHING? Or should I find some HDD cloning solution?
  5. Kexts are being processed on every boot

    Thanks. I tried following your directions above, but after doing so it wouldn't boot. It hangs with the error: "ACPI_SMC_PlatformPlugin::registerLPCDriver - failed to locate SMC driver" If I reboot with -x, I can remove the flag from the boot plist file, reboot again (and wait 5 minutes while it does so), it successfully boots. I'm a bit of a noobie with this stuff, I'm afraid. Anyone have any suggestions? EDIT: Fixed it! I had to put the .kext files that were in /E/E to /S/L/E, then run the command that creates the mkext. Seems to be working fine now.
  6. Kexts are being processed on every boot

    Hi, I had the kext processing on boot problem as well. Running "sudo kextcache -v 1 -a i386 -a x86_64 -m /System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup/Extensions.mkext /System/Library/Extensions" fixed it for me. But, after doing this I installed a kext to make my sound work. Rebooting after installing my sound driver made it process the kext files again, which was somewhat understandable... But it does it on every boot now. Re-running the above command fixed it, but then my sound doesn't work. Can anyone point me in the right direction? At this point I can either live with no sound and fast boots, or sound with slow boots. Not a very good choice to have to make.
  7. Lion GM doesn't see hard drive

    This was happening to me (disk utility didn't see my drive in the install screen). Changing my sata controllers to ahci mode fixed it for me. Hope this helps.
  8. Xcode 4.0.2...

    After installing Lion GM, when I try to install Xcode 4.0.2, it tells me I need to "upgrade" to 10.6.6 before I can install (lol). Any ideas how to get around this?

    Worked great! Thanks!
  10. Just wanted to say THANKS to the OP! This was one of the easier OSX installs I've done. Hope to see more from you!
  11. Hi everyone, I'm trying to install GM Lion on my system. Specs are as follows: Asus Sabertooth X58 mobo 12GB RAM Core i7 970 nVidia GeForce GTX580 I used tseug's guide for setting up a USB drive. I was, at first, hanging when booting from the USB drive on [PCI configuration begin], but I used the boot flag npci=0×2000 (as found on netkas.org) to get past that. My problem now is that when I get into the actual installation, my hard drives are nowhere to be seen (including in disk utility). Any ideas? Thanks! EDIT: Update: I just needed to change my SATA controllers to AHCI in the BIOS. I feel dumb. Installing now, so we'll see what happens.
