Upgrade 10.7.1 to 10.7.2 GM 11c73 fails - Any ideas?

Hi all!

I am really at the end of my rope.

I have this nice working 10.7.1 installation I wanted to upgrade to 10.7.2 GM. Installation is working fine. The reboot is not. I always end up with this messages:

 

Waiting for boot volume with UUID XXX...

Waiting on <dict ID=0><key>...

Stil waiting for root device

(see attached screenshot)

 

I tried boot with -v -f (ignoring caches) or -v -x -f but to no avail.

I tried "rd=disk1s2" which is the correct Lion booting HD but to no avail

 

I see that JMicron is not loading, but I don't know what to make of it, since I never needed a JMicron.kext before.

 

I have a nice working DSDT made in Windows and fixed by MaLd0n's autopatcher.

I use Chameleon RC5 r1213 and these kexts:

ACPIMonitor.kext

IntelCPUMonitor.kext

NVClockX.kext

FakeSMC.kext

IntelThermal.kext

 

Lion 10.7.1 needed a sound fix (ALC885_889a_LION.kext) and a Realtek driver (Lnx2Mac's Realtek RTL81xx) in S/L/E but after that it works like a charm. Really all things: sleep, sound, Bojour, TimeMachine, etc.

 

Any ideas how to solve this issue?

Many thanks!

Zep

OK, I found the fix.

I was using Chameleon RC5 r1213. Looking for solution for this weird issue, I found a thread somewhere with people claiming that all revisions before 143x and after 1496 would have issues with 10.7.2 and/or iCloud. Hence, I downloaded and installed r1496. And it worked! No issues whatsoever. 10.7.2 boots fine and I could login into iCloud. Well, I still don't know if it's working (my laptop is still on 10.7.1) but I will find out soon.

 

Thanks for reading!

I have the same issue

Can you post the link where did you download it ?

 

Maybe some detailed steps of what you did exactly :) ?

 

Thanks

Well, the only thing which comes to mind is to empty your caches and allow OSX to create new. And repair permissions. You can do that out of your OSX installation environment (USB stick or DVD, whatever you use).

Start terminal and write this:

cd /System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup/ ENTER

rm -Rf * ENTER

touch /System/Library/Extensions/ ENTER

 

On chameleon boot you should try booting verbose (-v) and ignoring existing caches (-f)

When you choose your boot drive just type in -v -f and hit enter

After update, you need to rollback the following (see below) from 10.6.7 version.

 

S/L/E/AppleACPIPLatform.kext

S/L/E/IOPCIFamily.kext

 

GL/HF!

Great! Nice to hear that.

Wel, there are some PS2 kexts you might want to try floating around.

As for iCloud: which Chameleon version do you use?

AFAIK 1618 or 1627 a proven working with iCloud. Although it may sound funny, it can be a boot loader issus. I have had this and solved it with 1627.

Hey thanks

Can you name some of the PS2 kexts I may use ?

 

Currently I'm using Chimera 1.5.4 and it didn't solve the issue but my friend has Mac Mini :wallbash: I may ask him to give me his S/N to use in my system definition and gain access to iCloud

 

Also one last question. You know any good backup software to use ? (I'm thinking of something like Norton Ghost for PC maybe)
