Mac OS X Lion 10.7.2 ,boots whenever it wants.. ;o

Hello guys, i am new in Mac zone..So excuse me for my lack of knowledge or any stupid mistakes i may make/say.. :)


Yesterday i bought Mac X lion from app store and i managed to install Mac OS X Lion 10.7.2 from the usb drive..

At first i didn't have sound ,internet , and my graphics card wasn't recognized..

After That i used the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] and i installed a DSDT.aml file for my motherboard ,system utilities & kext utility. Nothing else.

After restart, my graphics card worked fine , so i fixed the internet ,through next wizard by loading an already fixed IONetworking.kext..So i had internet too..

Then i installed VoodooHDA-2.7.2 and my sound was fixed as well..

So almost everything were ok..

Then comes the strange part..After all these when i shutdown my Mac and try to restart/boot again ,Sometimes boots normally ,sometimes not..Without changing anything ,every single time i try to boot.. in Average , it needs 3 times to boot..I don't know why..

I already tried -x -v -f ,but nothing seems to bypass this unusual crazy issue. It's like my Mac has it's own will.. :wacko:


My system is :



CPU : INTEL CORE I7-920 2.66 GHZ LGA1366


Graphis Card : GIGABYTE GEFORCE GTX480 GV-N480D5-15I-B 1.5GB PCI-E


Here is my ChameleonBoot :

<string>npci=0x2000 busratio=20 darkwake=0</string>
<key>Legacy Logo</key>


These are some screenshots from the <Panic > screens during the failing boots attempts


when i try with -x -v stacks like this..




If i use -f -v , stacks at the same point and says "waiting for root device "


and the times i boot it normally shows me this (it's the same screen i just shot each half separate)
