"I can't guess what your problem is without the appropriate information. Post as much relevant information as possible. Eg include your dsdt and smbios for a start. And which chameleon build are you using?" Sorry I didn't give enough information. But, I think I know what it is now. I disabled VoodooBattery and now it boots quickly, and reliably. SO, I guess my real question is: Is there a battery monitor kext that works, and allow the computer to boot? I'm using the DSDT and the smbios from the links above. BTW, thanks for this write-up. Many were the times I almost gave up on the install, only to look back at this post, thinking, "No, I know this can be done!"
So, I used this guide with 10.7.3, and have been trying to get this to work for the better part of 2-weeks now. Installation was extremely difficult, with lots and lots of freezes, but I eventually got it on there. The problem I'm having now is getting it to boot up. Sometimes I get "cpu context error", but more often, it just hangs up at some random point in the boot process. I've tried verbose, ignore caches, single user; it doesn't make any difference. It can take anywhere between five and 20 (or more) forced shut-down and restarts before I get to the desktop. Once there, it's pretty stable (mostly), but, getting there.... I'm using Chameleon 2.1. Is this some problem in the SMBios? DSDT? This laptop was running quite well on 10.6.7.... Thanks!
