Put in S/L/E

FAKESMC.zip

double click in kextUtility

 

oh man, i just fooled myself :hysterical: , because in ' Snow ', i put those kexts in ' /S/L/E ' :rolleyes: !

 

you're right, it works in ' /S/L/E ' ( better ) !

 

i put all kexts from ' E/E ' to ' /S/L/E ' !

 

FakeSMC.kext, IntelCPUMonitor.kext, NVClockX.kext, SuperIOFamily.kext, IOAHCIBlockStorageInjector.kext

 

just curious why

NVClockX.kext

never worked for me ( no Nvidia temps at All ), look at attached ' kernel.log ' !

 

thank you so much for your Help :thumbsup_anim: !

For some reason most of the 3D games don't want to work in Lion. I tried to play NFS Undercover and Fall Out New Vegas but they both refused to launch in Lion. The only game I was able to launch is Lego Indiana Jones, so does anybody know what the problem is?

i use this method: http://grafikdesign.wordpress.com/2008/02/...ll-a-kext-file/

 

 

 

i wouldn't for the moment, it killed my installation... had to restart from scratch. wait until the official release, get the dmg from appstore and then use the official upgrades, i'd say

 

 

 

no idea for the ps2 devices, but for the audio, use the modified ones from Snow Leopard. I use the attached ones- AD2000B (despite mine being 1988b) and modified HDA attached

 

thanks fo the help bingaling but it still doesn't work (no sound no ethernet no ps2)..i really don't know what else to do..tried with kext and nothing happened(i used terminal,kext utility,kext wizard,osx86 tools and nothing)..i have been dissapointed....why doesn't work?

I have P5Q Pro Turbo and use this Network Kext and some of these kexts haven't worked with my Ethernet so If it fails to work then try the one I am using here.

Thanks MaLd0n for this guide - e saudações desde Portugal!

 

Unfortunately I am stuck at "waiting for root device" at the third boot of Lion...

 

This is my setup: Gigabyte GA-965P-DS2, C2D E6600, 2Gbs of RAM, 1 80GB disk IDE connected, GPU: MSI 7600 GT.

 

What I did:

1) followed your guide, it worked as expected

2) booted the first time in Lion

3) installed Chameleon to lion partition

4) moved the Mac 9,1 Extra folder to Lion disk

5) run the DSDT Auto-Patcher and copied the DSDT generated in the desktop to the Extra folder

 

On the second boot of lion I got a kernel panic with message "cpu 1 has no hpet assigned to it", so I put the 3 kexts you mention in your post in E/E (IOAHCIBlockStorageInjector, AHCIPortInjector and NullCPUPowerManagement).

 

I don't get the panic anymore but I am now stuck on the "waiting for root device". I changed the BIOS settings to/from IDE to AHCI, tried all combinations, with no change. I also tried to delete each and both the E/E AHCI kexts... no change.

 

How do I solve this? Please help.

 

Thanks / Obrigado

run on terminal

perl -e 'open(CMD, "ioreg -lw0 \| grep DSDT|") or die; while(<CMD>) { chomp; if($_ =~ /\"DSDT\.?\d?\"=<([^>]*)>/) { $buff = $1; open(PIP, "|xxd -r -p > ~/Desktop/dsdt.aml") or die; print PIP "$1"; } }'

send me DSDT generate in desktop

How does the system know to look for additional kexts in the extra folder?

 

Just an update I have my system working for the most part.

 

Followed this guide for lion.

My 5770 xfx card works out of the box just after a display detection and reboot. Had to install 3 kexts to get the networking working. They are

Marvell88E8056.kext

IONetworkingFamily.kext

Skge.kext

 

Onboard audio was enabled by VoodooHDA.kext.

 

 

Only thing I am worried about now is how to tell if my system is been used to its full potential?

Im not sure my USB transfer speeds are anything to shout about and same could be said for my sata speeds too.

 

My system is as follows.

 

Asus P5Q Deluxe

Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600

4 Gig Ram

XFX ATI 5770 HD 1 Gig PCI-E

Belkin mini bluetooth

Creative XFi Audio PCI (not working)

try with USBBusFix=Yes

 

same as roby777 i encountered this issue when trying to install Lion DP4, and the USBBusFix=Yes fixed it and it carried on booting

but... this screen comes after the boot and i wait for like 10min yet it still does not response. Have tried redo restoring the USB and it is still the same.

hey mald0n thanks for that idea, i didnt think of using GFXenabler=yes to get past my error (pure white screen with beach ball.) i have a 7600 GT, with stuff in dsdt for it, should i just try it like this or should i put a kext in for it?

Nope not working. Still hangs at the same line.

 

I noticed that my hard disk spins down after that line as well.

 

Thanks!

DORT,

just a guess, try removing the Ethernet cable till after it boots then replug it.

 

PS mald0n i was looking at the kings guide for hda, it was great except its for the old type of hda, the format has changed somewhat in the PLIST's, is there another guide that has pics etc for snow hda? or lion as it changed again recently in the 1068 update too, right?
