OS X Lion DP2 on laptop

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts



I have tried installing Mac OS X Lion 10.7 DP2 on my laptop via USB following this guide: http://geeknizer.com/install-mac-os-lion-1...-pc-hackintosh/


But I get the same error as when trying to install Snow Leopard 10.6 and 10.6.3 both retail and iATKOS S3 and S3v2 distros.


I have an unsupported Intel Core i5 460M CPU and Intel Integrated HD Graphics together with AMD HD5650. My PC chipset is HM55, the same as the new Core i5 Macbook Pro.


In the guide i followed I needed to put a FakeSMC.kext into installation USB, and fix permissions.


My bootflags within the EFI USB Bootloader is -v busratio=19 cpus=1. These are the same I used when trying with Empire EFI and tonymacosx86 [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] and Snow Leopard.


I have uploaded photos of my screen at boot.


And before I forget it, the error I get is:


Still waiting for root device


Still waiting for root device


Hope anyone can help me.


My PC specs:


Manufacturer: HP


Model: dv6-3160


CPU: Intel Core i5 460M


GPU: Intel Integrated HD Graphics and AMD Radeon HD5650




OS: Windows 7 64-bit


I have Snow Leopard Server 10.6.7 installed in VmWare if needing a mac to solve the problem
