Hello All, I am a newbie to all of this I require some expert knowledge.

 

I have a Dell D630 Nvidia with C2D 2.2 and 2GB Ram

 

I am trying to install Lion on to this laptop but i get to the installation page it starts then fails and goes to "show log"

I do not know where to look for the error message

I have attached a copy of the Saved Log file

 

Steps taken so far

 

I have create the USB installer using my hack and used the bootpack compatible with the relevant OS (e. SL, Lion and MLion)

I have set the SATA controller to achi

Using Myhack i have removed the problematic extensions.

The HDD is partition as one

 

 

Any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated

 

I have SL running on my D420 but would really love to have Lion on my D630

 

Cheers

did you point my hack at the boot pack when it asked for an extra folder?

 

I have now recreated the usb installer adding the Extras via Myhack and pointing to the ones I had extracted from the bootpack.

 

Firmware has also been updated to A18

 

If there is any other advice you wish provide that would be great.

 

Regards

There's one thing that is missing in the guide and that is to install AppleACPIPlatform. kext (from OS X Snow leopard 10.6.x). To be able to perform this you need your D430 system and use the OS X Mountain Lion install disk as a USB drive.

1. Boot your D430 system, once OS X is loaded, connect the USB drive where OS X Mountain Lion was installed.

2. Open KextWizard, and install AppleACPIPlatform. kext in S/L/E folder. BTW, you should install kext first on your desktop.

Here's the link where to get it or see the attached kext.

3. Open application myHack/myFix/

4. Select Full mode on the USB OS X Mountain Lion install disk.

5. Restart and boot on the USB OS X Mountain Lion install disk drive. Voila!

 

Good luck and I'm pretty sure that should work. I encountered the same problem on D630 Nvidia.

AppleACPIPlatform.kext from 10.6.7.zip
