Different colours on the installation screen

Recommended Posts

Greetings,

 

 

I'm trying to install Mac OS X Lion on my Asus laptop. Specs:

 

Asus K93SV

Intel Core i7 processor (2th generation)

Nvidia Geforce GT540M (1 Gb)

 

I've also put in a second Hard disk (SATA) to install the OS.

I try to install OS X Lion from a usb.

 

I kind of hit a Road block. When the text is done with flowing (verbose) it's supossed to boot into the installation menu.

Except I get a slideshow of colors. Red, Green, Blue, Grey , Different shades of Grey, black and a White. (and not this one beachball.gif)

And I have no idea what to do now.

 

I've tried almost all boot commands. I also have loaded the K93SV kexts into the USB. I also loaded the kext for my video

card on the USB.

 

I appreciate the help!

I've tried searching this issue but I cannot find anyone with a similar problem.

Except this one: http://legacy.tonyma...hp?f=15&t=38607

But I don't get any wiser from that thread.

 

I appreciate the help!

If you have in Bios the option to switch to integrated gfx do it and set the switchable option to off. The K93SV has optimus, which does not work with osx so far.

Try to boot with option -v -f or -v -f -x. It could be necessary to remove all Geforce and Nvidia Kexts from your install device. If you don´t get to the install screen then, remove AppleIntelSNBGraphicsFB.kext too.

Styrian,

 

Thanks for your reply. Indeed I thought that the problem was with my graphics card.

It is not possible for me to disable the card from the bios, because my BIOS is locked, and I rather not temper with my BIOS firmware.

 

I also have tried the different boot flags it has no different effect.

 

I will try to remove the kexts from my install device and post my findings here.
