2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts



i have a problem with the mac installation on my thinkpad x220.


but first the data specs:


- Intel Core i7 2620 Sandy Bridge

- Intel HD 3000 Graphics

- standard HDD with 320gb / hitachi

- 4/8rb ram



i can install mac os snow Leo 10.6.0 with [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] lagecy and the retail DVD without problems. If i Update to 10.6.8 i get problem with boot. here my steps:


- Install Updatehelper

- Reboot

- Start [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] 3.9.0 (only opened)

- Install the combined Update pack 10.6.8 and then the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] many different options

- reboot


Then i cant run the bootloader from the mac hdd. I cant only run with [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] but i cant start the mac anymore... I get an PCI load error...


an update from 10.6.0 to 10.6.7 works well...


Whats my fault? Or what can i do?

Any x220 Users with 10.6.8 or better with lion?

I believe the error is PCI Configuration Begin?


Could i have an image of the error.


If the error is what i said. Try using "npci= 0x2000" and make sure your ThinKPad graphics is set to Discrete Graphics. Change the OS Detection to Disabled.
