It was very easy to install.

Then I downloaded QE/CI Exotic patch Lion GM from kexts.com and my ATI HD4890 sprung into full resolution.

 

The audio is not up and running yet, though.

I have a Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD7 with 889a sound... any tips/trix to get it working?

i'am confused :unsure:

 

from your installation guide:

 

3. Find <key>GraphicsEnabler</key> <string>Yes</string>

4. Set the value Yes to No and save

 

should it be not the opposite?

I have used Kakewalk to install Lion and everything goes well. After I install and reboot I set up Lion and installed Kakewalk for the GA-X58A-UD3R Rev. 2. Lion recognizes my video card after installing so that does not appear to be the issue. When I reboot to the HD I get to the Apple screen and nothing happens. I have checked my Bios and everything is set correct. Can anybody help?

I just tried it out on an empty disk to see if it was a piece of cake and pretty much it was. No onboard sound but I have a firewire sound card. In fact you avoid 90% of hassles with a usb or firewire audio card/device.

It's looking good so far, Safari is in a higher gear here. I haven't got an idea yet what bits of software work or not.

 

Can the OS on this install be upgraded like a bona fide Vanilla, through 'Software Update'?

This is awesome! I'm really excited to see this great solution, can't wait to upgrade my EP45 UD3P snow leopard to LION. Quick question, is the nVidia 9800 GTX supported? cause i only see the 9800 GT.

 

Thanks again!! awesome work!

Anyone know how to install 10.7.2?

 

 

i tested it on a gigabyte UD5 and 10.7.2 works perfectly with kakewalk 4.1.1.

 

 

will kakewalk support other boards other than gigabyte?

 

 

I have a gigabyte UD5, and i am building another computer and the only montherboard still around is the UD3R, where is the UD5 & UD7? Is the UD3R a better board?

 

Also does kakewalk 4.1.1 support the NEW gigabyte boards?

I just tried Kakewalk 4.1.1 and found it the easiest USB drive install I have ever created . Many thanks for this great tool My target system has a Gigabyte Z68X-UD3H-B3 main board with an Intel I3-2100 CPU and Nvidia GeForce Gt 4300 graphics card. The HDD is a WD 1TB drive partitioned as GPT - 2 500Gb partitions.

 

The Kakewalk installer booted without a problem and the Lion install ran without a problem. The problem came when I tried to boot the new install - it had a "boot 0" error. If I reboot from the Kakewalk USB install disk and select the new Lion system it boote correctly and the system runs as expected.

 

Searching now for a solution to the boot 0 error.

You didn't run the cakewalk utility afterwards in order to install the dsdt + boot loader + extensions.

It is perfectly possible to do it manually but you obviously haven't done either option.

Badeendje,

 

Thanks for the reply.

 

You are correct, I did not run any other commands after the install. I am a bit confused though. On the target system I boot from the Kakewalk USB stick, open Utilities -> terminal and enter "find / -name cakewalk" and no such utility is found. I also looked on the http://www.kakewalk.se/blog/ site aqnd I find no reference to the cakewalk utility.

 

Could you provide a pointer for me?

Just to be sure I had it right:

 

I rebuilt the Kakewalk USB stick, repartitioned the target system HDD, selected a different HDD on the target system and partitioned it as GPT 500Gb and installed OSX Lion. After restart and boot Lion with the Kakewalk USB stick the first post-setup action was to run Kakewalk and update the installation. Same result - boot 0 error.

 

I also added a work folder to the Kakewalk USB stick and inserted a Chameleon 2 RC5 install package. After restarting from the boot 0 error I ran the Chameleon package. It also has boot 0 errors.

 

The target system has 3 Western Digital Caviar Green 1 TB SATA III Intellipower 64 MB Cache drives. My Linux fedora 16 system has no problem with them but apparently Chameleon does. I will need to look for a solution to that.
