17 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

use latest chameleon for lion

 

make an efi string for your card (osx86tools, use custom)

 

insert efi string into boot.plist inside /extra

 

get atyinit.kext 64 bit

 

install it in S/L/E

 

rebuild kextcache (kextwizard ;-) thanx janek 4 this tool

 

your hack will now boot correctly

Got the same problem with Asus K52Jr (Intel i3 350M and ATI 5470 1GB) and the "new cat" installation. Will try kexts from SL installation and see if anything good turns out.

Hi man, i have tried your fix. I have this error only in Lion and Snow 10.6.8

My problem is little different, i have this error (and the pc do not boot) only if i use dsdt.aml. If i delete dsdt.aml my pc works

 

p.s. my video card is nvidia 9800gtx, i have this problema ONLY with snow 10.6.8 and Lion

 

You have advice?

So were you previously getting the PCI configuration begin error in 10.6.8 or Lion DP4?

in all mac os lion developer preview versions 1 2 3 4

 

i didn't try 10.6.8....the last version of snow leopard i tried was 10.6.7 on gtx460 and always got random freezes ..... but in developer preview version its working like a charm but i also noticed while minimizing something or going to full screen or coming back to full screen ..... its kinda give a felling of lagging ... but thats ok for me .....

 

 

also dual moniters are also working
