Hello, I know theres a tread for this laptop, but im guessing its dead, because i havent gotten any response on it. A lot of people have gotten ML to work on this laptop, mine has pretty much all the same components, but the model is 20150, so its slightly different. It runs smoothly, but randomly it wont boot up with kernel panics, (it will say something about IOPCIFamily. this is randomly, other times it will boot. WHy is this?Ive reinstalled the os 4 times following the instructions that were on the thread for this laptop because i thought i was doing someting wrong.

also, my USBs dont work, camera, and battery dont work. Ive tried different usb methods, and voodoo battery kext, but nothing.

Can anyone help? or maybe someone here has this laptop solved?


thanks in advance

thanks! the battery worked when i installed it. But thats before i copy the "extra folder" that i downloaded from another guide. After i copy it over, it doesnt work anymore. If i dont copy that over, then i have a bad resolution. Im assuming i have to edit the dsdt? I have viewed it from an editor, i have no idea what i was looking at though. Its only my second hackintosh =P. Is there any solution? or another way of getting this to work?
