GA-Z68MA-D2H-B3 Only booting in safe mode

Hello! Been looking for a solution for a while now, a little lost.

I installed Lion through Kakewalk. The installation went smoothly and I rebooted. It stalls on the apple logo, I've tried some boot flags but it didn't make any difference.

I can boot fine in safe mode but with no network connectivity. I managed to get the network connection working through ###### but now I have another issue.

Before, even in safe mode it was displaying the full resolution of 1920x1080, but [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] and UserDSDT (With DSDT from tonymac) both limit the resolution to 1080x768. I have tested this on fresh installs, it is not HDAEnabler being on/off. Neither have fixed the issue of only booting in safe mode.

 

I don't know what the issue could be or where to start and hours of googling and experimenting haven't made any difference. If anyone knows what the problem is the help would be really appreciated!

HDA is High Definition Audio so it's probably not affecting your screen resolution. Since HDA Enabler is an installed kext, it's not something that can be turned on or off, if you installed it, it's enabled until you manually remove the extension from S/L/E, and likely would need to rebuild the cache afterwards as well. Same thing applies to whatever the "easy one click install" thing put in your system, running the other "easy one click install" option will only overwrite files it's replacing that have the same name and path, but any other {censored} it installed is still there, doing whatever it does. If you ticked any check boxes that installed stuff that is not needed for your hardware, or 2 different methods for enabling 1 piece of hardware, you'll need to find those and get them out too. First you should be booting verbose on any new setup to help diagnose any problems, stuck at Apple logo is useless, stuck at whatever the last line of text is in verbose mode is very useful. But it's a graphics issue regardless, are you using on-board or do you have a separate GPU installed and if so what model, and device ID?
