    Hi, placed another wireless card. Now I got my wireless working, thanks a million ! Still getting problems with the trackpad. The trackpad works like a normal mouse, which is good, but I want multitouch like scrolling and zooming. Can u get your elan trackpad work like multitouch ? Could u please explain how, and with files/kext I should install or delete ? Thx !!

    Hi BlackestEyes, Sorry for my late reply, but I forgot I opened this topic. So I figured out on my own how to install lion, after 10 times installing I finally managed to run lion, only thing not working is the wireless, sleep and a half working trackpad. Making u full guide for this laptop is a good idea !! The K53SV is a great laptop and is very popular because of its good quality and price ratio. Maybe we can make one together (my english it not to good) ? So this is how I did it. - Set the boot priority of the cd on top in de bios ( to get into bios, hold F2) - Burn [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] to cd - Put the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] cd in the laptop, wait for it to load - Take the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] cd out of the dvd tray and insert your Snow Leopard retail 10.6 dvd, press F5 - Select Snow leopard install dvd en type the command "PCIRootUID=1", press enter - Open disk utility and format your drive with journal - Install snow leopard onto the disk - Before u can boot into snow leopard u must fill in some data. I just filled in a computer name without a password en pressed next on all the other pages. - Once booted into Snow leopard, I downloaded the 10.6.7 combo update. Installed it, DO NOT REBOOT - Open [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url], select "[url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]", "system utilities", "Macbook 8,1 system difinitions", "PCI ROOT ID fix", "instant menu", "chameleon RC5 default" - Reboot, ( if u can't reboot try using the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] cd selection the snow leopard partition with the command PCIRootUID=1) - If u want Windows 7, make a second partition in MSDOS fat using disk utility. - Insert your Windows dvd and reboot from the dvd, install Windows 7 on the MSDOS fat partition, but reformat with NTFS. - After the install u can boot into windows or snow leopard - Boot into snow leopard, then i downloaded Lion (10.7.1) via the appstore. Following the guide of tonymac with Xmove - Reboot and choose the installer partition. - Install lion on the Snow leopard partition (then u get the HD3000 working out of the box). - Once booted in Lion my keyboard didn't work so I opened [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url], selected "system utilities", "Voodoo ps/2 controller", " Lnx2Mac's Realtec installer for ethernet" and " VoodooHDA 0.2.72" for audio. - Rebooted into lion. Working: Touchepad, but no multi gesture. Installing VoodooPS2Trackpad makes the trackpad total useless. Ethernet full QE/CI keyboard/ brightness keys sound and mic not working: wireless sleep webcam So i installed your trackpad zip next using kext utility and my mouse was flipping i had to reinstall everything :censored2: Does lion detects your trackpad and can u use multi gestures ? ALC928 did not work for me. Why did u put the lion_install_volume.zip files in you installer volume ? Also when i try to make a fresh install using the installer partition after the installation is says there is no keyboard, do u get the same error ? On another forum some get the wifi working with atheros fix, but it is not working for me, I do not know where to find the info.plist Also i installed the VoodooBattery.kext using next utility. Thanx for yout respons

    A quick look on the acer driver support site, for your type of laptop. Showed drivers for the GT540M as well as for the Intel HD3000. So your laptop is using the optimus technologie. When u try to install the nvidia drivers, it will only see your intel HD3000. But now it is possible to get full QE/CI support in Lion, using the intel HD3000. You can find it here http://www.tonymacx86.com/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=26370 keep me posted about your progress, good ? Thanks allot and good luck !

    Not a good laptop. It will not work duo the gt540m because of the "optimus technologie". Search a laptop with AMD/ATI GPU.
