iAtkos L2 stop at PCI configuration begins... right?

I tried with npci=0x2000 but no go...

It seems like it runs all the way to the installer, but no picture on the screeen hehe

I did not trie with external screen.


What you need to do is to make a Lion usbstick installer. And get these files: http://www.osx86.net/downloads.php?do=file&id=1417

Put them in /System/Library/Extensions on the usbinstaller...

Maybe somebody made a bootcd with these files I dont know...


My Dell Precision M6300:

Intel T9500 2.60GHz

4 Gb ram

Nvidia Quadro FX 3600 512mb

Broadcom WLan and Lan


Everything seem to work, except C-states and sometimes wake from sleep dont work.

okay now i tested the usb installation i used the german tutorial but it stucks after dsmos arrived.

I have deactivated bluetooth becaus it shows an error after dsmos if activated.

is it possible that i can put the files you said in the image of L2?
