ML 10.8.2 on Dell XPS L502x

Recommended Posts

I tryed to install ML 10.8.2 on Dell XPS L502x with an Intel Core i5 with 750GB fast SATA HardDisk and 4GB Ram

At the End of Post, there is a link with Folder and 3 Pictures to look what is failed.

With all Installaling Guides i create a Stick 8GB Capacity with 1 Partition HFS journaled and Layout MBR.

I recover iATKOS dmg to usb stick.

After that, i install chameleon bootloader to stick.

 

The stick work on all USB Ports on laptop.

After the Line "No interval found for . Using 8000000" the Install Startup stops.

Should i use an additional bootcommand like "-v -f -x npci=0x2000" or i need an kext modul to fix thix?

AppleAHCI kext and USB kext already used (after that my mouse led is working).

Thanks a lot for helping ....

Thanks for answer,

 

i have used this loader, and before the installation start, they stops at "No interval found for . Using 8000000"

The Loader stops at PCI and i have installed PCI kext on Stick in Directory Extra.

But installation dont start from Stick.

What for Kext utilitys i need for laptop Dell XPS L502x?

Need i AppleAHCI Kext ?

 

i use this one, that shown on youtube video.

i have installed AppleAHCIPort.kext ElliottForceLegacyRTC.kext IOPCIFamily.kext PCGenUSBEHCIkext

I'm also very disappointed to install ML on this laptop!

Made my own 8Gb flash drive several times exactly following the guide lines and also following successful ways to no avail.

It always gave me a black screen of death after the kext loading screen finished! (in Verbous mode) and also there wasn't any difference between verbous and normal boot.

The screen went black, but when I pressed a key on the keyboard the flash LED blinked 3 times and went off again.

 

Did the making procedure around 15 times with no luck! :(
