[AMD] 10.7.3 Guide - Experimental Only

Recommended Posts

This installation method, albeit quite helpful during its time (thanks, Devout!) is quite outdated now. You have better chances with the procedures and tools described here:http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/forum/318-amd-development/

 

Do you use IRC? There's always people willing to help with AMD installations in the chat #legacykernel, on the server chat.osx86.hu.

 

Best regards!

Any ideas? I've tried all kinds of boot flags to help, but nothing. I have USB Legacy turned off in mobo, everything unplugged, and the boot flag (what it took to get SL installed) and nothing. I used method 2 and made sure to replace kernel and finder in installation. Booting with latest Chameleon.

 

My specs:

CPU: 960T

Mobo: Biostar ta880g+

RAM: 8GB

Vid: 6870 Sapphire

 

Thanks in advance!

 

-helllo man ,

----use another fakesmc kext (try a 32bit kext and 64bit also )----

i think your KP is related to fakeSMC device but i am not sure .....

 

you can also :

 

-try the maxmem=1024 or maxmem=2048 flag

-try another new 64 bit amd kernel (update 3 from osx86.net ......) you do not need to replace the 64bit finder app , but the 32 bit finder from dp2 also work

-boot first with arch=i386 and if it boot test with arch=x86_64

-if it not boot test with only one RAM SLOT ( 2gb only ) remove all others

-remove all atapi devices for the test if you have (dvd , cd , hdd .....)

-make sure you have set HDD as ahci mode

-try another boot loader (chimera ......) , try to boot with another graphic card (if you have another pciEXPRESS old card)

 

I HOPE YOU HAVE SNOW LEO ON ANOTHER sata or usb DISC / or PARTITION ,with this you can make modifications (kexts , kernels, org.boot file ,etc.....) on your lion EASLY

you can also use single mode terminal but it's more difficult (google is your friend )

 

use my hack 3.1 to apply permissions repair on your 10.7.X install after each kexts modifications (s/l/e and extra ) my hack is the best , you can repair permissions from 10.6 to your 10.7 partition but this program do not want to run in safe mode ......

 

GOOD LUCK MAN , YOU CAN DO THIS MAN !

Thanks! I'm at work right now, but it's going to be my weekend project. I've got my SL on a different partition and can successfully boot to that, so no problems there. I'll check out the IRC this weekend if I keep getting stuck. Thanks again!

All it took was a 64bit kernel and the -nossse3bit bootflag...thanks for pointing me in the right direction! now on to fixing the little quirks like audio and networking!

My System:

AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black

Asus M4A78 Plus Motherboard

6GB RAM

Radeon 4890 1GB Graphics card.

 

I was able to install iATKOS L2 using the following flags:

 

-legacy UseKernelCache=No GraphicsEnabler=No -v

 

iATKOS installed fine and I can boot into the Chameleon bootloader. The problem is that iATKOS won't boot. I don't even get the Apple logo. Just some scrolling text (standard OS X safemode boot text that files by faster than I can read) then the screen goes blank and my system reboots.

 

I think that the system might reboot when it says something about PCI but I'm not 100% sure. The text scrolls too quickly for me to tell.

 

I've tried various bootflags. Any suggestions? Are there customization options that I missed during install?

 

Update: Looks like it's rebooting on "Starting Darwin x86"

Is it possible to do this without existing Snow Leopard? I can't even get that to work. The iatkos S3 disc runs flawlessly, no flags required then I can install it. But when I try to boot from the HDD it just either hangs without booting so it's a black screen. Or it reboots the computer.

Hi everyone,

 

I have a perfectly working SL on my Athlon X2 5600+/Asus M2N-SLi/GTS250.

I've used method number 2 to install Lion on my PC, everything went smooth, replaced the kernel, but I get instant reboot after loading it. I've tried all possible flags which I could find around the forum, it just loads the kexts and then - boom and restarts..

Any ideas what could cause it? Any kext which is not supposed to be there?

 

Thanks in advance

Yes I have my SATA III is set to AHCI and i cannot change SATA II (idk what it is). I have to controllers on my board the SATA III one is SB950 and the SATA II one is JBmicron 362.

I have tried both and neither work (same problem0

 

(Just as a Side note by (SATA III) I mean REV III which runs at 6 GB/s. By (SATA II) I mean 3 GB/s.

We need a kext for this southbridge.  I have the same problem.
