Hi, The bios needs to be updated to the version that uses the user's thread, and the CPU must be identical to his (i think), the dsdt has been modified specifically for its hardware.

Post a question on his topic

Boot with -v -f GraphicsEnabler=No

You can install Mountain Lion or Mavericks instead of Snow, just enough to have a 8GB pendrive and a working OS X system.

You can use dsdt from the topic, put the file in Extra and reboot.

If you have Kernel Panic, just reboot with DSDT=/aaaaaaa and delete it.


I don't have permission to move your topic in right section
