Is it the hardware specs or is it something with kernels and such? Also, can't it work even on Snow Leopard?

Will I no longer have problems with my graphics (which is a 7480D)? Lastly I noticed that your tutorial was in French. Is there any chance of a guide in English? Thanks! :D


One last thing (pun intended :lol:) could I use the Niresh version? Mac OS X Snow Leopard is no longer being sold on our local Mac stores (Power Mac Center).

I'm currently downloading Niresh12495's Lion 10.8.2 with the AMD support. Hopefully it works because its the only version that I found with an actual guide which is from here:

Reading the comments on the install of Niresh's ML installer, a guy had the same hardware except a bit different motherboard (his is an F2A55M-DS2 mine is a F2A75M-HD2) and his installation failed. Which distro should I try?

It's okay to discuss distros but no warez links please.

Okay. How do I set it up? I really can't understand French.

I found out that my APU (which runs on HD 7000 Series) can only run on Mountain Lion since ML has the drivers. Should I go for that instead?

the problem is your APU graphics card, integrated video of your CPU does not work in ML or other OS X for now, the advice I want is you to add a NV graphics card or ATI HD 7xxx except a GT 610 works fine under Lion 10.7.5;)

So my APU also won't work on Lion? I already have everything set up and I just need a couple more green lights before starting the USB up.

euh ??

 

 

ce n'est pas cela que j'ai écris , j'ai dit qu'il te fallait une carte graphique et que tu utilises Lion 10.7.5 ;) 

 

this is not why I wrote, I said that you needed a graphics card and you use Lion 10.7.5  ;)

I'm a bit puzzled but here's how I understand it: My system probably would work but I'd be better off with a different card.  Is this it?

This is a quick one, how do I manually install the suggested Clover bootloader without a Mac?
