    The part that keeps me away is the bios flashing part you mention in your guide. I've already burned a bios chip before and since then I'm staying away from flashing bios

    From the looks of it We need to wait a bit untill things clear out a bit and we have a good guide and working installation for Mountain Lion, as it has just been released. I for one will keep my 10.7.3 install until Mountain Lion is actually usable for my i5. Mohamed: The new macbooks come with nvidia chips and no optimus. Isn't it possible that ML will handle this on its own without a DSDT? I still don't use your DSDT because it causes a sleep bug on my i5.

    For those of us with the DSDT sleep issue Mountain Lion would help with the intel - nvidia swich. Maybe when you will rewrite the guide you can take a look at why your DSDT affects us. Maybe a bios issue? From what i could gather it happena on the i5 models with centrino.

    Follow M.O.S method like you did before. (set up the usb stick following Mohammed method and then just apply the my hack like in M.O.S method) Then when you install (make sure you put the stick in the a usb 2.0, the 3.0 gets you the still waiting for root - i usually put it in the combo port) boot with DSDT=No.aml - this will get you past the sleep issue. Once you install let it restart and boot again with DSDT=No.aml After that follow the post install procedure from the guide and delete the DSDT.aml After you restart you will be good to go. If you update to 10.7.4 don't use the VoodooHDA.kext because it will kernel panic. Just use the one provided in the guide. Make sure if install all kexsts with Kext helper (kinda does the same thing as my fix - sets permissions and stuff) If you have a VGA monitor : Download Chameleon Wizard (serahcon google, it will have a green wizard icon) and once you start the app go to SMBios tab hit edit and select the 8.1 (sandy beige) this will enable you to use vga. Again make sure you use the usb ports on the left (other ones give errors)

    Hi elad, Use the myhack method and boot with DSDT=no.aml Same after installation. Then delete the DSDT.aml from the Extra folder.
  6. {Guide} DELL INSPIRON N5110

    Well I don;t use the DSDT and the app shows GPU1 to be at 50c. So i guess gpu1 is the intel one.

    Hi Uwk, I use Adobe Photoshop CS6, Illustrator and Fireworks. So far i haven't had the time to use any of them for a long time as I have just set everything up. But I did notice some very small artifacts here and there once in a while. The graphics card stays in about 50c. Also i played a bit of d3 and works fine.

    So now that the new macbook pros with retina come with nvidia optimus, does that mean that we will have kexsts soon for our nvidia chips?

    @Futan, Managed to generate an smbios using the Chameleon Wizard. VGA semi-works, as in if i restart i have to plug it out and back in in order for it to work. But its better than nothing. I can say I have a fully working Lion Install 10.7.4 except wireless, which I don't really need atm since i will keep os x on the external HDD. Also is there any way to make the ethernet run on 100MB ?
  10. {Guide} DELL INSPIRON N5110

    So no luck with what you suggested Futan Upon loading the DSDT.aml with Chameleon Wizard i got this: Intel ACPI Component Architecture ASL Optimizing Compiler version 20111123-32 [Dec 3 2011] Copyright (c) 2000 - 2011 Intel Corporation /Users/Adrian/Desktop/Post Install/Post Install/Extra/DSDT.dsl 5155: Method (_REG, 2, NotSerialized) Warning 1079 - _REG has no corresponding Operation Region ^ /Users/Adrian/Desktop/Post Install/Post Install/Extra/DSDT.dsl 9166: Method (SX45, 0, NotSerialized) Warning 1113 - Not all control paths return a value ^ (SX45) /Users/Adrian/Desktop/Post Install/Post Install/Extra/DSDT.dsl 10078: Name (_HID, "MONITOR") Error 4035 - _HID suffix must be all hex digits ^ (ITOR) ASL Input: /Users/Adrian/Desktop/Post Install/Post Install/Extra/DSDT.dsl - 11002 lines, 329545 bytes, 3986 keywords Compilation complete. 1 Errors, 2 Warnings, 0 Remarks, 5 Optimizations Notice the part about _HID, "MONITOR" might have something to do with this.

    @Aleff I used a vitual machine in order to set up the 8GB flash (using Mahommeds pre install clip). (search popular torrent sites for Mac OS X Lion 10.7.3 VMware Image) for wm. I copied DP4 (AppleHDA.kext and AppleIntelSNBGraphicsFB.kext) to S/L/E on the usb flash in order to get passed the sleep bug on boot. I formated my Hitachi External HDD as Journaled and hit install After install in order to get past the sleep bug I booted with DSDT=Nonexistent.aml Then I just followed Mahommeds Post install Steps. But I had to delete the DSDT.aml in order to boot properly and get past the sleep bug. After restart, prety much everything was working but the WiFi and VGA. Since I'm a Graphic Designer i really need VGA to work in order to extend my desktop to my 24" work monitor and wifi for when i'm at a client. SO these 2 things are critical for me. Maybe someone can create a DSDT for me..

    Managed to Succesfuly install using M.O.S's method. It seems that the DSDT.aml is is actually the problem that causes the laptop to go into sleep. If I remove the DSDT.aml from extra I don;t have any issues. What does not work: Wireless - ( I have the Intel Centriono 1030 one) Are there any kexts for this one? VGA - Tried detect monitor, unplug plug back in, no success. (if I use the DSDT i get vga, but the laptop screen is really really dark. and cannot set brightness) I can't use OS X without these 2 issues that are crucial for me. Please help! Thanks

    So I figured something out: If I boot with the external monitor the laptop screen goes black but I can tell it extends since i can walk the mouse from the external monitor to the monitor. Problem is that with the laptop lcd being black i don;t know whats there in order to drag it to the external one. If i bood with the external monitor unplugged it just goes into sleep. I'm really out of options here I think its one of the kexts that causes this problem
  15. {Guide} DELL INSPIRON N5110

    OK, so here;s what happened; I copied DP4 kexts onto the USB install and that fixed the problem. So i was able to install. After installation I had the same problem, only this time when I was booting up the system. So I fired up my virtual machine and proceeded with the Post Install Steps. That got it to work and I booted into "Before you Start.." Problem here is that after i set up an user account, the processes loops. I never get to the Lion Welcome screen. so: /sbin/fsck -fy /sbin/mount -uw / passwd root ## touch /var/db/.AppleSetupDone exit The above helped me get passed the loop Then I Booted with -v -f GraphicsEnabler=No. If I boot with -v or -v GraphicsEnabler=No It hangs up at AppleRTL89..kext TIMEOUT Or at Transcript Process.OK, so I finally managed to log in. Using -s procedure: Now Let's see if I can set-up the resolution and other stuff. I had to reinstall because all the usrs were in standard mode and i couldnt create an admin one. Now i'm back to square one trying to make it work again. Without luck i might add. Main Problem - after DSMOS has arrived my pc gets into sleep or if i have an external monitor attached it hangs at the gray linen screen. Help is apreciated. thanks
