PCI Configuration Begin (tried npci fix)

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I'm trying to install Lion to my laptop, Asus N82JQ. Specs here:

  • Intel Core i7-720QM
  • 8GB DDR3-1333
  • 500 GB Segate 7200rpm
  • NVIDIA GT335M
  • Atheros AR9285

Since I have already installed Snow Leopard to it, I'm going to upgrade it by xMove.

My bootloader is Chimera 1.7.0.

 

But when I boot to the installer partition, it stopped in "[ PCI Configuration Begin]".

 

I have tried "-v npci=0x2000" and "-v npci=0x2000 PCIRootUID=1"

, but nothing happened. I also have a DSDT file patched, but it does nothing.

 

Any help please???

 

P.S. DSDT attached here (sorry I cant upload aml and dsl files to insanelymac)

Thanks for helping.

 

I added the _ADR line into DSDT, but didn't fixed the problem, and I have FakeSMC installed to /E/E from here. (without any plugins)

install to /System/Library/Extensions .. dont use /e/e if possible.

-v -x UseKernelCache=No

as a test then switch to Yes

 

and make sure to remove the radeon and x3100 in plugins folder inside of fakesmc.kext (right click show package contents)

 

what smbios.plist are u using ?

Thanks for help again. I moved FakeSMC to both Snow Leopard partition and Installer partition, but didn't fix the problem. (there are no plugins in fakesmc)

And I tried to boot with "-v -x UseKernelCache=No" flag, it still doesn't work.

Also, I have AppleACPIPS2Nub and ApplePS2Controller installed in /e/e (for keyboard and trackpad), should I move to /s/l/e too?

 

Here is the smbios.plist:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
<plist version="1.0">
<dict>
<key>SMbiosversion</key>
<string>Chameleon</string>
<key>SMboardproduct</key>
<string>Mac-F22589C8</string>
<key>SMfamily</key>
<string>MacBook Pro</string>
<key>SMproductname</key>
<string>MacBookPro6,1</string>
<key>SMserial</key>
<string>C02CGEE6DC79</string>
</dict>
</plist>

 

and org.chameleon.Boot.plist

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

I got it solved. I use the EvilAppleACPIPlatform and EvilIOPCIFamily to get through PCI Configuration Begin, and I use PC EFI to avoid boocache.playlist problem, then I successfully installed Lion. thanks for helping anyway.

The problem is likely cause by your dsdt.aml. Boot without dsdt.aml & extract fresh one inside OSX. Then patched the new extracted dsdt.aml. If you done this, you can use npci=0x2000 & you will not need Evil kexts.
