Gigabyte Z68X-UD3H-B3 Kakewalk 4.0.1 install HELP

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I just built my machine this afternoon and am eagerly attempting to install osx lion with Kakewalk 4.0.1. I prepared my 8gb usb thum drive and selected my motherboard with no problem. I set the bios to AHCI mode and HPET to 64 bit mode. I set my usb drive as the first boot device.

 

When it boots I get a bunch of white writing on a grey background, then it goes to a black background. I snapped a picture of the screen right before the screen goes black, while the computer stays on.

 

Again my motherboard is a GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3

Same exact problem here as OP had. Same motherboard, and my video card is a Gigabyte AMD Radeon HD 6870. Does anybody have any other suggestions about how to fix this? Unplugging and replugging the video cable didn't help...

 

EDIT: wow, I feel like an idiot. I changed the graphicsenabler setting in the boot preferences (on the kakewalk USB stick in /Extra/com.apple.boot.plist) from yes to no and it booted up just fine.

Make sure to set your bios to AHCI and set HPET to Enabled 64-bit.

 

Also try booting with 'npci=0x2000' at chameleon command prompt on boot drive (press tab a few times at chameleon/kakewalk boot screen).

 

I now have Lion running smooth with a GTX570 and this board, audio and network working fine, only strange thing is my 1tb windows drive is not listed in disk utility which boots fine from the boot menu - weird.

If your video card is 9800 GTX + then it is not supported in kakewalk 4 (yet) and you need to set GraphicsEnabler=No as the default is set to 'Yes' and it will work then (well that worked for me atleast).

 

The only problem is that I am still awaiting for my graphic card to be fully recognised by Lion.
