  1. Is this guide alright to use with P8P67-LE?
  2. Terrible internet speed?

    Finally got lion to install (And only took 1 saturday night and a few coffees).. Although, After installing and messing around I noticed my internet speed wasn't as fast as I remember it being on windows. I did a speed test and got something like 0.96kps d/l when on windows I get around 8Mbs d/l. I had a few problems with my kexts although a mate of mine told me to set my ethernet to 10baseT which fixed the problem, but I'm guessing is also causing the slow speed problem? Motherboard : P8P67-LE CPU : Intel i5 3.1ghz 2400
  3. Update : This problems goes away if I set my hdd to ACHI, but if I do this I get stuck with the error : "Unable to find driver for this platform : \ACPI\" Hey guys, I've been trying to install osx all day today and have just been getting errors after errors..(Thank god for the wiki page, searching through the forums is a nightmare) Although I've now hit a slight problem that the wiki was unable to help with..

Still waiting for root device Still waiting for root device Still waiting for root device Still waiting for root device I looked on the wikipage and it said about using the 1st ide slots for my hdd and removing any other hdd, so I took out my other hdd and put 1 in, in the main ide slot. Although, I'm still receiving the same error :/ Boot command I'm using atm : -x -v cpus=1 acpi=off EDIT : Do I need to make the partition for osx before installing?
