  1. Supported Graphics cards with Full QE/QI

    Yep same here (Dp4 and GM now) XFX 5770 - Brilliant in Snow Leopard. Can't figure it out in Lion. Have copied the Device ID into the ATI5000Controller.kext and I can now boot without -x I've not tried many other routes yet but will let you know if I do get it working.

    Sorry forgot to mention, I did try without a DSDT and used the one generated in finalize - same thing!
  3. [GUIDE] A fast and easy way to install Lion

    Yeah I've tried without Graphics Enabler sadly! It's recognised in the boot up but inside osx its not at all. After all things are still early stages, I'm sure after Lion's main release a lot more information will be circulating and I can try again! - Just done a fresh install and Im sure I saw a Panic. let me check it out.
  4. [GUIDE] A fast and easy way to install Lion

    Using DVI for it, 1 monitor. Also my board is mATX (went for easy/lazy fit in my G5 case!) so 1 PCI-E. Without PCIRootUID=1 I just get a Matrix style screen, messed up black. Have tried the other install method on this forum was the same issue so its Kext related? No expert but strange the way im not seeing panics or anything? the actual crash seems to come when the grey Lion screen loads. Think its definitely graphics? What loads and doesnt load exactly with -x safe mode? I'll try a few more things and check them logs too. Thanks.
  5. [GUIDE] A fast and easy way to install Lion

    Hey Tseug, Having a couple of problems and was just wondering if You could shoot some advice? I can't boot without -x If I try without -x and use -v, PCIRootUID=1 I don't seen any panics, or any errors (a slight usb hang actually). I get to the end, Grey screen loads and looks promising for about 0.5 seconds before it hands/dots appear. At the minute I can boot with -x PCIRootUID=1. But being In safe mode, I'm not sure if it loads any graphics or not? as my 5770 (XFX) is only being recognised as a 5mb 1024x768 card. (could this be rectified with putting some downloaded kexts in /Extra/Extensions?) I have tried a couple but no avail, and read from others 5770 works Out of box. Also even with -v, I'm not seeing anything obvious is there a way I can check a log from within the desktop? Thanks again! - ps Im using a DSDT from auto patcher too.

    Still trying away, No luck. Actually Got into the install with an [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url], but it was hit and miss so im trying to retrace my steps haha. Thought i'd mention, your v0.5 release, 80% of the files are prefixed with 'install' now so the terminal /mkboot commands dont work! I just renamed them all and works obviously but incase somebody else is trying thought I'd say!

    Exact same place unfortunately I'll have a good play with things and see if I can progress. Thanks a lot, will keep updated incase anything changes!
  10. [GUIDE] A fast and easy way to install Lion

    Thanks for replying. Tried removing ElliotForceLegacyRTC.kext, no avail. my i7 is the first revision before Sandy bridge, So I looked in the iMac 1156 zip - that correct? Also if you believe that would help in making a new install.tar.gz, and only if you have the time. If not would I be able to just switch the FakeSMC.kext to the newer? Thanks a lot!
  11. [GUIDE] A fast and easy way to install Lion

    Great guide. Thanks a lot for taking the time to do this. SL has taken well to this machine but with Lion I'm having a problem, probably a noob problem. Asus p7h55-m Usb3 i7 860 4GB Corsair XMS3 1600 XFX ATi 5770 Followed everything. Used a DSDT from the Creator. All well, Can boot from USB but I dont make it as far as installation. First I get this, I then hang on that, until I press my power Button once, and it advances to this. Apologies if its something simple but I've searched around. Tried removing the NullCPUPowermanagement after it said timed out, same thing. Tried -x Any ideas? thanks in advance.
