I have the exact system running here with SL and Lion. Everything seems to work rather well even sleep.

 

The graphics card at the time I built the system wasn't supported and I put in a 8400GS instead. It's a work machine so i don't need super graphics. :)

 

For the network card i use the IntelE1000e driver and it works well.

 

For the sound card i just use VooDooHDA.

 

The key i found was getting the DSDT setup correctly. After that things just worked.

I'm trying to get SL on my Lenovo M55 (extremely similar specs) but cannot get past the "searching for device with UUID..." thing. Any advice on how to set up the DSDT properly? Once I get the thing to boot then I'm golden, I'm sure...
