Help with boot loader - Dell Latitude E6510


3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I almost have a fully functional Lion OS working on my Dell Latitude E6510. The only problem I have is that it will not boot up without the USB drive. When starting up I get the PCI Configuration Begin message.


The only way it will boot up from the USB drive is if I use the following command:


-v npci=0x2000 PCIRootUID=0 GraphicsEnabler=YES


I installed Chameleon 2.1 r1768 as the bootloader and I have the following statements in my org.chameleon.Boot.plist file:




<key>Kernel Flags</key>

<string>npci=0x2000 </string>

<key>Kernel Flags</key>

<string>PCIRootUID=0 </string>


Is there anything else I can do to get my system to boot up on its own?


Thanks in advance!!!

To answer your question, I installed the OS with a USB drive using [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url], and can be found at tonymacx86.com




I have installed and updated the Chameleon Wizard and it will still not boot up from the hard drive. For some reason I cannot post a pic so I will have to tell you the options I have set in the Chameleon Wizard:


Boot Flags:


Default Partition hd(0,2)





Ethernet Built in

System Type 2-Laptop



Graphics Enabler
