Well after scouring the net for days, and many installs later. I have figured it all out. I have NPC67 nforce560 chipset with 630m nvidia 7150m video hardware. Everything is working. I used Leo4all 4.1 AMD 10.5.4 to install.


I had to hunt down other kexts for wifi, sound, card reader, AtherosAR5007EG.pgk, and KisMAC after the install to get all my hardware to work. Here are more specs of my hardware and whats working now.


  • AMD Turion 64X2 TL-60 2.0 GHz, 2 GB DDR2 SDRAM
  • nVidia video (GeForce Go 7150M 256 MB shared) with widescreen 1280x800 display
  • Conexant HD audio (221)
  • nVidia nForce LAN
  • Atheros WLAN b/g (AR5007)
  • Samsung 5400-RPM 250-GB SATA HD
  • LG DVD+/-RW DL with Lightscribe
  • Ricoh Card Reader

All USB ports

Wifi Atheros AR5007EG





Quickplay buttons and volume controls

There is 1 thing i wish i could do. Since i have 7150m i would love to get a kext or install method for QE/CI to work on this video hardware but i have LOOKED everywhere and there is nothing!! Can someone create something to make QE/CI to work for 7150m? I see so many threads on the internet about 7150m having no kext or QE/CI. Please if anyone reading this is a genius on video card drivers make something to help everyone and me cause we love our laptops. lol
