  1. First of all a big thanks to the InsanelyMac community for such an extensive information at our tips to use. So, after months of waiting, finding just the correct method to install the Mac OS X Lion (10.7) on my PC, after giving about 100's of tries, I finally managed to install Mac OS X Lion on my PC, absolutely working, with Sound, Networking, and Graphics. [Note: This guide is for Gigabyte GA-G31M-S2L motherboard only. Also for the below given hardware specs. Might cause problem on different hardware than this. So proceed carefully.] Here's my system specs on which I am currently running Lion: Gigabyte GA-G31M-S2L rev. 1 Intel Core 2 Duo E7300 @ 2.66GHz 4GB ( 2x 2GB) 800 MHz DDR2 RAM MSI N9500GT OC Edition And here's the method I followed: Requirements: Kakewalk 4.1.1 from http://www.kakewalk.se/ Lion Installer, can be downloaded for $29.99 from Mac App Store. Minimum 8GB USB Stick. A Mac is needed to create the USB stick with the necessary files for installing Lion on your PC. Borrow one from a friend for at least half an hour. [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] (Lion Version) from http://www.tonymacx86.blogspot.com Once you have the files downloaded, you can start the process. Copy the Lion installer and Kakewalk to the Desktop of a Mac. Run Kakewalk, and on main screen click 'Create Install Disk'. On Next Screen, locate the Lion app you downloaded from the Mac App Store, choose the motherboard, in this case 'Gigabyte G41M-ES2L' as that works perfectly, then choose the USB stick as the destination (make sure you select the correct disk, or you'll end up installing to the Mac you're working on), then hit the Create button. Go grab yourself a cup of coffee, as this may take 10 - 30 mins depending on the pen drive. Once done, you have a bootable USB having the Lion installer in it. The pen drive is renamed to Kakewalk. When the Kakewalk finishes, click OK in the end, eject your pen drive, and return the Mac to your friend unscathed. Now plug the USB to your PC and turn it on. Go to BIOS Settings, in there change these settings as follows: First boot device under Advanced settings, to USB-HDD, and in the first option under Advanced Settings, press Enter, and select the USB-HDD and press '+' to bring it to the top. (Make sure you have your pen drive attached, then only it would show up in here) Power Management -> HPET -> 64 bit, ACPI Suspended Type -> S3 (STR) and (don't remember the exact option) Hard Drive Mode -> Enhanced [*]Save Settings and boot. [*]When you boot from the USB stick, you will see the Kakewalk EFI bootloader, let it start itself. [*]After this step, you'll see a long process of white text flowing on your screen, after which you'll be greeted to the Lion installation screen. [*]Follow the instructions on screen till you reach where to install Mac OS X. On top goto Utilities -> Disk Utility. In the left pane select the main HDD you will be installing Lion to, then click Partition on the left in center. From Volume Scheme Select '1 Partition' and in Options below, select 'GUID Partition Table'. Then in volume information, type a name for your disk, and select format type as 'Mac OS Extended (Journaled)'. Leave the rest untouched. Click Apply. One done, exit Disk Utility. Select the Disk you formatted, and hit Install. [*]The installation will take about 30 mins, at the end of which your computer will reboot. Leave the USB Stick plugged in, as there is no bootloader yet, the pen drive provides a temporary one, we'll be fixing that later. [*]This time when system boots up, on the Kakewalk EFI bootloader screen, press any key. It will show up the Disks to boot from. Select the disk you installed Mac to, identified by the name you entered in Step 9. [*]Now you'll be welcomed to the next steps of Installation. Continue with the necessary details as asked. [*]Once done, you should arrive on the default Lion Desktop. Congratulations!! Your installation has been successful. But you still have to install the bootloader to your hard drive so that it can boot up on its own. [*]Now run [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] you have downloaded. Click Continue till you reach the screen where it asks to select what to install. Check the first option, '[url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] Install', thats it. Click Continue, Enter your password, click OK, and let it install. Once done, close [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url], eject your pen drives, and reboot. this time you'll see the system automatically boots to the Mac. [*]So now we're done with the installation. As of now, your Graphics and Internet should be working, open Safari to check. But Sound still doesn't work. So we need a bit of tinkering. [*]Click on the magnifying glass on top right, and type in 'HDA', you will see various results. Click 'Show All in Finder'. [*]If you see a file named AppleHDA.kext (in case it doesn't show up in Finder, navigate to /System/Library/Extensions and in there find the file), delete that file. If it asks for password, enter, hit OK. Empty Trash from dock. [*]Now you'll need to download 2 files: The compatible sound kext file from here: http://www.osx86.net...p;_working.html And, Kext Utility, from here: http://www.osx86.net...0.7_update.html [*]Note: If you plan to update to 10.7.2, don't proceed below to steps 20 and 21, as sound will be enabled after updating to 10.7.2. Simply follow from post #10 below, and leave step 2 in there (saving you some work), else you may continue here. [*]Extract both, and run Kext Utility, let it perform the basic work first. After it shows 'Enjoy ...', drag and drop the downloaded kext file onto the interface, Enter your password, OK, and let it install. [*]Once done, reboot, and you should have sound fully working. That's it, Enjoy your new Hackintosh!! Attached here is the screen shot of my Hackintosh.
  2. Ciao a tutti, ho un Acer Aspire 5920G (Specifiche in firma), qualche settimana fa ho installato iAtkos S3 V2 senza particolari problemi ed adesso vorrei provare a montare Lion. Ho provato con iAtkos L1 e con iAtkos L2 ma il problema che ho riscontrato in entrambi i casi è che si ferma il boot. (eseguendo in modalità verboose l'errore riscontrato è PCI Configuration Begin) Ho provato con svariati kernel flags di cui ho letto in moltissimi post ma nessuno ha funzionato ( ncpi=0x2000; arch=i386; PCIRoot=1, ecc.) adesso diciamo che ho lasciato stare questo metodo e sto seguendo la guida con metodo Unib****. Avete qualche consiglio da darmi a riguardo ? Il metodo migliore secondo voi per installare Lion, qualche consiglio per riprovare con Iatkos, Qualche dritta per l'installazione con Unib****...potrebbe essere utile non solo per me ma per chiunque abbia riscontrato questo problema o sia interessato ad installare Lion. Grazie Vi allego la screenshot dell'errore in boot con iAtkos
  3. Hi to all Acer Guys, My experience with the Acer Aspire 5755G (Stock UK Model) and Mac OS X Lion Installation (up to 10.7.5) using [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] has been challenging and exciting. However you may have followed other methods posted on different posts to have a first Mac OS X Lion installation on your laptop. But this one worked for me, so it's time to share it. Requisites (what you'll need): - Running Mac OS X Lion installation. - Purchased Mac OS X Lion Install App. - 8Gb USB Flash Drive. - USB keyboard. - Wired Internet connection. [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] Method: Create Mac OS X Lion installation USB Flash drive… 1.For fresh installations on empty hard disk follow steps 1-2 from this link http://tonymacx86.blogspot.co.uk/2011/10/[url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]-install-mac-os-x-lion-using.html 2. For dual-boot installations on hard disk with already windows installed then follow this link http://www.macbreaker.com/2012/02/lion-on-mbr-partition.html Note: Do not use ###### at any instance in this entire guide. Installation: 1. Using your current Lion setup and the USB dongle, make a [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] install (http://tonymacx86.blogspot.com/2011/10/ ... using.html). Leave the USB plugged. Name the USB Volume "DONGLE", for instance. 2. Copy and unzip the Acer5755g kext pack (download from attachments) to a temporary folder (named it TEMP) on the root of the USB dongle. You'll have a folder structure like /TEMP/Extra and /TEMP/SLE. Safely extract the USB drive. 3. Plug the dongle in your ACER. Fire it up, press F2 to enter the bios and make sure you're using the integrated video card (Intel). Otherwise the installation will also proceed but you'll have problems like NVidia checking time outs. You may also check the bios to see if the option to select the boot source is selected. After that, boot using your USB drive. 4. Choose your language, accept the License, enter the Disk Utility and format your partition any size you like, Mac OS Extended (Journaled). In my case I made two partitions: One for the OS (named it "OSXVOL"), the other for Time Machine Back up (please read note below) in order to have a quick rollback during this process. Note: If you’re doing dual-boot installations with windows then make sure you have enough primary partitions, as windows restrict you to make more than limited (3 or 4) primary partitions. So for this reason I always recommend to use external drives for time machine backups. 5. Install Mac OS X Lion. When it finishes, leave the USB dongle plugged and reboot. 6. Press F12, select boot from USB. Again boot from the DONGLE partition again, as if a new install. Select the language then accept the license. 7. Run the Terminal app, copy the contents of the kext pack to the Mac OS X Lion Volume. But first create the /Extra folder. # mkdir /Volumes/OSXVOL/Extra # cp -R /Volumes/DONGLE/TEMP/Extra/* /Volumes/OSXVOL/Extra # cp -R /Volumes/DONGLE/TEMP/S:L:E/* /Volumes/OSXVOL/System/Library/Extensions 8.- Also delete the AppleHDA kext. Sometimes the boot process panics with the voodoo sound kext. And then, reboot. Leave the dongle connected. # rm -rf /Volumes/OSXVOL/System/Library/Extensions/AppleHDA* # reboot 9.- Again, press F12, select the USB boot device and this time boot your Lion Volume (OSXVOL) using "cpus=2 maxmem=4096". Now plug your USB keyboard as well. The boot process might hang. Please take note of the offending kexts if any. Otherwise try again a couple of times. NOTE: You might be presented with the "Before we begin" screen. There are cases I've seen where the system claims it cannot find a keyboard, some other cases (like mine) the mouse was nowhere to be found. Workaround here http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/lofive ... 66565.html. However this didn’t work for me either. Only after I booted with the "cpus=2 maxmem=4096" switches, the keyboard was detected. No need to say that I tested several models before. 10. Now complete the rest of the Mac OS X Lion setup process, create your username blahblablah. 11. You'll notice you have support for audio, USB and the internal NIC (Ethernet network). So plug your cable and hook it up to your router because we'll need an Internet connection to download the 10.7.5 upgrade combo, Chameleon Boot-loader, kext utility and whatever other thing you need. After that, I performed a time machine backup. 12. Backup made. Now launch the 10.7.5 combo upgrade. Install it and DO NOT reboot. Go back to your downloads and run and install Chameleon. Finish it and do not reboot. 13. Open a terminal window and delete the AppleHDA* kext, as it will be restored by the combo upgrade process. $ sudo rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions/AppleHDA* 14. Reinstall the kexts from the Extensions folder of Acer 5755G kext pack. 15. Run the Kext Utility to fix perms or do it manually. Now reboot and boot from your local HD. This time your Lion is up to date. Congrats! Hope this worked for you. 16. For Dual Boot Installations there are chances of getting boot0 error. So if in case you had it then please follow these simple steps a-e. For full guide please refer this link http://legacy.tonymacx86.com/viewtopic.php?t=61081 a. Reboot system back into Lion installer. b. Run Disk Utility and unmount the drive you installed OS Lion on. c. Launch Terminal and execute the following command: dd if=/Volumes/"###### Volume Name"/usr/standalone/i386/boot1h of=/dev/disk0s2 In my case my ###### volume is called "OS X 10.7.5" so my command would be: dd if=/Volumes/OS\ X\ 10.7.4/usr/standalone/i386/boot1h of=/dev/disk0s2 d. Exit Terminal e. Reboot Normally Credits: - :thumbsup_anim:Many thanks to the author and members of this thread (http://legacy.tonymacx86.com/viewtopic.php?f=170&t=34477&start=50). I would have not been able to proceed without juankar guidelines. - Given you made a backup with time machine feel free to experiment with kext and customization installs. Most probably you'll ruin it all (as I did) but you need only to boot with your USB dongle and perform a time machine restore. - This guide will be updated with more responses received from members. So please feel free to let me know. What's missing so far? - Broadcom BCM43227 Wi-Fi support: I haven’t been able to find the proper kext. Any hints?. I changed to Atheros 9285. - Bright control: After restarting laptop the brightness also resets to max level. I also found the brightness level being too high at min level. And Function keys are mismatched to “F12” and “Pause”. - Élan PS2 Smart Pad V2 Track pad :I've seen some guides in other threads, haven’t had the time the check them out yet. - USB 3.0: Not Working. - HDMI: Not tested. - Wi-Fi LED: Not Working. Have a Nice Day! Hi guys, Note: Do not use [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] at any instance in this entire guide. Thanks.
