Mac Lion Install

Recommended Posts

Hi guys.


Just installed Mac Lion on the following config:


Mobo Intel DP55KG

6 GB Ram

i7 920

4 HDD 1.5TB each

2 HDD 1TB/1.5TB for SiliconImage 3124 pci generic card

2 DVD rw Drives

1 Blu Ray Drive

GT220 Nvidia Video Card


Installation: MUST use [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] 1.4 or won't recognize the usb ports and hence cannot choose during install process. Description of install are as giving in this forum.



- All HDDs and DVDs

-LAN with AppleIntelE1000e.kext

-Sound with VoodooHDA

-Video QE/CI with NVEnabler. Had to mod the info.plist to add the NVCAP entry for this card.

-SiliconImage Raid Card working as RAID with SiliconImage driver (website)

-MenuMeters NOT working. Cant see all cores on the MenuBar but sysctl hw.ncpu | awk '{print $2}' says 8 which is correct. Also using Activity Monitor>Window>Floating Cpu Window>Vertical you can see each CPUs activity and there are 8.


-I tested cpu performance via a mp4 conversion with Handbrake. All 8 CPUS where fully used. This cause somebody reported a single core use in a performance benchmark. Not here. All 8 cores.


- VLC or DVD Player will not present the Video part just sound. DVD or File.Weird. But iTunes DOES.


-Preview also doesn't show some graphics like the print screen or a saved jpg file.


- Thee is a way to go before releasing the Lion. ;)
