CPU double panic at boot - Unsure why - Lion DP2 EX58-UD5

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello all...

 

I installed Lion onto a second drive for my EX58-UD5 Core u7-920 OC'ed to 3.8GHz and Snow runs great at 10.6.7 but I am getting a kernel panic with Lion and can't figure out why.

 

I have tried the bootflags like -v and -usecache, made sure that PlatformSupport.plist was deleted and have tried 32 and 64 bit mode and nothing seems to work. I also have all the kexts in S/L/E and am unsure whether or not it might be ATY_Init of the ALC8x kexts I am tying but I don't think it's those things. Binary is not my strong suit though. :)

 

My graphics card is at PCI 1 and my boot is PC-EFI for Lion from te Hackinstaller. BIOS is set to proper conditions for Snow, and that's about all I believe I can tell you that will help with the exception of course of showing you the screen shot of the KP.

 

If anyone has any ideas, I am all ears (or eyes as the case may be) and I thank you in advance.

Thanks MalD0n,

 

That got me a heck of a lot further, but not quite there. I have an Apple wired keyboard hooked up, and a GTX 470 at PCI1 (No other way I can do it) and now I get to the Lion login screen but it then asks me to identify the keyboard and the z and / key thing won't register at all where in Snow it would give me an error but let me proceed.

 

SO... I bypass it and go to the login screen where I use the keyboard fine and login, the screen refreshes black then to a blue screen and back to the login screen.

 

Definitely a weird one, as I have not read anything similar to that here.

 

Just to give a little more info, I installed Lion on a 1TB internal SATA drive hooked to my MB Pro using a USB dock, booted to it, Time Machine restored my MB Pro drive to it, and then did what I needed to to do o get it ready to put into the Hackintosh. Works great for Snow installs, but I guess I am missing some little thing.

 

Also I have GraphicsEnabler=yes in com.apple.boot.plist and am booting into 64 bit mode (need it) and that's all I think. :)

 

Thanks for the help and the great guide over on the other page. Ya know, I wish there was an easier way to find good info on InsanelyMac, the forums more and more are hit and miss to find things, and I am a very proficient surfer. Didn't see that post at all before you pinted me to it.

 

Thanks again for the hand holding. :D

MaLd0n,

Still have that login loop and I can't seem to figure out why. I don't want to smoke the install because it's got a full time amchine restore on it and I know it worked hooked u to my MB Pro so I know it's prolly just... soemthing. Problem is not sure where to start. It's not mission critical I just want to mess around with it. Snow is still my production OS.

 

Also do you know if they are time bombing the Lion DP's?
