a FINAL WORKING sollution for all of us!!!

just install the latest bios...

and download the iatkos l1 or l2

for graphics install it with efi

and for LAN you can find broadcom drivers from lan section

(if someone cant find them pm me..)the kext needs edit to add device id

for sound i have use voodooHDA but im using a creative audigy2 for audio card because the onboard have only line in/out not the mic is not working on the back(working perfect on the front mic-in)

NO DSDT needed,NO Kernel Needed

i can install updates like official on my machine...! i have install 10.7.2 via system update without any modification of kext! all works perfect!!!

except icloud/appstore/facetime :/ if someone have fix it pm me!!


when i fix icloud i will make a guide for the forum with all working kexts

I have stable running 10.7.5 on my Dell Precision 690 with old BIOS A03.

So BIOS update is not mandatory...i think.
