  1. Asus K53sv-sx063v

    Hi popcornbag, that's right. You won't get the stock Wi-Fi-Card to work. But you can fix it the way I explained just easily and fine: "For getting Wi-Fi to work i had to replace the built in Card with an Atheros AR5B93. Got it for 20 EUR on ebay. Try searching! When you have replaced your Wi-Fi Card use the AtherosFix (http://www.mediafire.com/?dgno4vlknnm)" It took me over 20 trys to figure out the right way to install Lion on this Notebook. As I need my NB for work I had to remove Lion from the HD, but cloned it to my USB-Drive and also put Chimera on it. So when I want to make the Lion roar, I simply plug in my USB-HDD and turn on the Notebook. Great, that you could figure out another way to install Lion. I think your guide is also great for ppl, who don't want a new "from-scratch-install". Awesome work. But let me know, which problems you got with your trackpad, plz. Maybe I can help, as mine works flawlessly! BTW: I think this thread is th first worldwide, which can provide a guide for the K53SV! At least I haven't found any other.

    Hi, Yeah I have access to my Windows 7 - Partition. I created two partitions using the DiskUtil. But you have to install Win7 BEFORE installing Lion. Otherwise you'll have the problem, that [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] won't work any longer and due to the customization with additional kexts needed to boot Lion, the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]-CDs did not work for my Notebook. I used GUID partition table, but MBR should be working, too. When you have successfully created the Install-Volume you can install Lion straight. I did so, because I did not have anything important on my previous install of SL and wanted a fresh and clean Lion. IMPORTANT: If you have not already: Go buy an external HDD and back up your system after each step using Carbon Copy Cloner. Awesome tool, free and definitely saving your back.
  3. Asus K53sv-sx063v

    Hi there, should be possible. I have the k53sv-sx178v. The only difference is that in mine has another processor built in (i7 2630qm) an it's got more RAM (8GB). I got a fully working OSX Lion (10.7) incl. full QE/CI. This is how I got it working: Install Lion using this guide: http://tonymacx86.blogspot.com/2011/07/xmo...x-107-lion.html When you have successfully created the install-volume replace the kexts on the install-volume for Lion with the ones from "lion_install_volume.zip" When you successfully installed Lion, plug in a usb mouse, for the trackpad won't work OOB. Run [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] and select "System Utilities > Rebuild Caches + Repair Permissions" "Drivers & Bootloaders > Kexts & Enablers > Audio > Realtec ALC8xx > Non-DSDT HDAEnabler > ALC 892" "Drivers & Bootloaders > Kexts & Enablers > Network > Lnx2Mac's RealtekRTL81xx Ethernet" "Drivers & Bootloaders > Kexts & Enablers > Miscellaneous > FakeSMC + FakeSMC Plugins > Motherboard Plugins" "Drivers & Bootloaders > Kexts & Enablers > Miscellaneous > IOPCIFamilyFix + IOUSBFamily Rollback + NullCPUPowerManagement" "Bootloaders > Chimera v1.4.1 r877" "Customization > System Definitions > MacBook Pro > MacBookPro 8,1" "Customization > Themes > Chameleon RC5 Default" "OSX86 Software > Kext Helper b7 + ShowAllFiles" Run through [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]. Reboot To get your Trackpad working use kexts in Trackpad.zip The integrated HD3000 Graphics work OOB. The NVIDIA won't. I don't think there is a solution yet, 'cause it's the NV Optimus technology, which is unsupported by Apple... For getting Wi-Fi to work i had to replace the built in Card with an Atheros AR5B93. Got it for 20 EUR on ebay. Try searching! When you have replaced your Wi-Fi Card use the AtherosFix (http://www.mediafire.com/?dgno4vlknnm) UPDATE 08-17-2011: When you update to 10.7.1 make sure you delete the AppleHDA.kext before reboot and reboot with -v -f Hope this helps you out a bit! If you got any questions, feel free to ask. It took me about 2 weeks of hard work to figure out, which kexts to use and to modify the kexts, that did not work properly for me in their original condition. I still want to write a complete setup - guide for the k53x - Notebook - Series, because there is no one yet I think (besides this little one ) Would be cool if you share your experiences here.
