Those of you with Dell computers having random freezes, be it in install or during boot, You need to replace ACPIPlatform.kext and IOPCIFamily.kext in /S/L/E with the ones from Snow Leopard. also if you are using a wifi card, most are, you will also need to bring over IO80211Family.kext as well, your system will boot and install from there.

Finally, Got Lion DP4 installed and working. Thanks MaLd0n. I was actually installing 'Extra_Lion DP4.pkg' file, installing 'Extra_Lion.pkg' file worked.

 

First change that I saw in DP4 was, No more Local Snapshots.

No, but have you tried the Voodoo kext? It worked on the Asus P5GC-MX from my daughter.

 

VoodooHDA.kext.zip

 

Hi Hugo.

Where to place it in Lion ? E/E ?

Should I not copy Language packages to my USB to safe a space, because my USB is 4GB ? Can I do this, or have to use like in SL, 8GB USB ?

I`m trying DP4

 

Is it possible to make a boot 4 GB USB flash drive with DP4?
