  1. @drdeviant Once again I'm a noob so bear with me. I had similar boot problems. I would boot up normally and see my boot options (Lion or Windows). I would select Lion, it would load then I would get a kernel panic. I tried different flags to enter Lion but would end up with a kernel panic. I tried the RbootLE CD, it would detect both Windows and Lion, I enter the commands -v GraphicsEnabler=No, busratio=23, cpus=1 and so on. It would end up with a kernel panic. So I booted up Windows, downloaded the free trial of MacDrive. I noticed that the org.chameleon.Boot.plist was changed to org.chameleon.Boot.text. So I deleted it and replaced it with my backup copy. I booted up normally and had no problems booting into Lion. Also, I'm not sure what kind of damage bootrec may have caused but you can try doing a system restore point to the point before you ran bootrec (Not sure if it will help) Then try booting up Lastly, make sure that the OS X partition is set to active through disk management in Windows or by running the RbootLE cd then ejecting it and placing your iAtkos cd, open up the terminal command window and set your OS X partition as active. I googled how to do this before. Hope this helps Here you go:http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=22844
  2. Thanks DoiX, upgrade went smooth for me as well. Not only that, my geekbench scores are averaging 6650. When I was at 10.7.3 and below, they would not pass 4900 I have noticed that the usb 3.0 ports do not work after sleep if I have a mouse or anything plugged. I have to unplug and replug (not a problem) @drdeviant I also run a dual boot with windows. I edited the boot.plist, changed Quiet Boot to No and Timeout to 10. I'm a noob at this but Chameleon should still be there. Once you do this, you will see your options to enter OS X or Windows
  3. @Rockball73 Thanks for the response. I reflashed the bios back to A06 and sleep now works...yay! @sheyac Thanks for the response. I will search for that thread to ensure that I'm taking accurate geek bench tests
  4. Hello everybody, this is my first post ( I couldn't pass those quiz tests lol) Anyways, over the last 4-5 days and a lot of reading, studying, google searches, trial and error, I have successfully installed 10.7.1 and windows 7 or so I think by following the guide on page 11 and this one as well. So many thanks to the O.P's on both guides and all of you who continue to help out. I do have a few questions if some of you can point me in the right direction I would be very grateful. The AICPUPM kext gave me many problems. I would say it was all my fault for not paying attention. Anyways it was causing kp's at boot. This is what I did originally, I booted up using rBootLE, I deleted the AICPUPM from S/L/E ( I made a backup), then ran the kext utility/disk utility to repair permissions and no more kp's at boot. I did a couple GeekBench tests both were 5554. I went back to page 11 guide to look at the "patched AICPUPM" under Post Lion Install, so I installed it thru the L502x V6 by only selecting AICPUPM 10.7.1 (I didn't install it the first time around since I thought it was for i7's only) I did get errors that it didn't install correctly so I ran the kext/disk utilities and rebooted normally using -v to look for kernel[0]: AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement: Turbo Ratios <number> kernel[0]: AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement: initialization complete kernel[0]: AppleIntelCPUPowerManagementClient: ready I did see this and according to the guide on page 11 the AICPUPM should be patched and I should have ST working, right? My Geekbench scores were lower this time 4839, 4851 Is this normal? Also, I'm running the smcK-Stat-i app to detect the temps. Are the 100's suppose to say 100?? (See Pic) Lastly, I put the laptop to sleep and it goes to sleep. But when I open the lid the indicator lights on my keyboard turn on but the laptop screen stays black. I read on this thread that sleep function was working, can someone point me in the right direction once again? thanks Okay no more questions, thank you everybody.
