Recommended Posts

System specs:

 

Intel Q6600

8 GB RAM

asus p5n32-e sli plus motherboard

bios version 1502

mcp55 storage chipset

NVidia 8600 GTS 256 MB Video Card

2 x Marvell 88E1116 PHY Gbit Ethernet Ports

Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS PCI Sound Card

 

Lion install source: app store

 

I started this out by plugging the hard drive in via usb. Installed using myhack 2 RC1. The first time after it finishes installing you must boot from the myhack 2 rc1 and install the extras so you get chameleon and are able to boot from the hard drive with lion on it. It is really slow I found though booting from usb, so I would boot with verbose -v or select boot verbose.

 

download the following and put it on a separate usb thumb drive:

 

Kext for sound blaster audigy 2 zs here: http://download.kxproject.lugosoft.com/

Kext for the ethernet ports here (I used 0.64.5): http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=125569

Kext for the sata ports is here (look for the post #14 by imk for the fixed 64-bit kext as the one posted by anv only works in 32-bit): http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index. ... try1420852

 

Update: do not use the nForceLan kext version 0.64.6 as it causes a kernel panic

 

To get graphics working I had to do the following:

 

1. In /Extra/org.chameleon.Boot.plist I added this:

GraphicsEnabler
yes

so it looks like this:


Graphics Mode

Kernel
mach_kernel
Kernel Flags

Theme
myHack
Timeout
5
GraphicsEnabler
yes


2. But it won't work until you create your dsdt. Download dsdt editor from here:

http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=223205

3. Then extract the dsdt and change the device PCI0 to use UID of 0 instead of 1 like so:

before:

        Device (PCI0)
       {
           Name (_HID, EisaId ("PNP0A08"))
           Name (_CID, EisaId ("PNP0A03"))
           Name (_ADR, 0x00)
           Name (_UID, 0x01)
           Name (_BBN, 0x00)
           Name (PCIA, 0x00)
           Method (_REG, 2, NotSerialized)
           {
               If (LEqual (Arg0, 0x02))
               {
                   Store (Arg1, PCIA)
               }
           }

after:

        Device (PCI0)
       {
           Name (_HID, EisaId ("PNP0A08"))
           Name (_CID, EisaId ("PNP0A03"))
           Name (_ADR, 0x00)
           Name (_UID, 0x00)
           Name (_BBN, 0x00)
           Name (PCIA, 0x00)
           Method (_REG, 2, NotSerialized)
           {
               If (LEqual (Arg0, 0x02))
               {
                   Store (Arg1, PCIA)
               }
           }

-found this out from here:

4. Once that is all done, compile it and allow it to fix errors. Then save it to /Extra as dsdt.aml and reboot. You should have a working video card now if there is already support for it in Lion.

5. Do not add to the chameleon boot file /Extra/org.chameleon.Boot.plist the ethernet builtin = yes option, otherwise when you open the app store, you'll get a kernel panic.

 

Getting Ethernet ports and sound working was just a matter of installing the 2 packages provided above. As for the storage kext:

 

1. Use go menu and select go to folder and put /Extra

2. Then copy over the kext to the Extensions dir

3. Then open terminal and run the following:

# sudo chmod -R 755 /Extra/Extensions/AppleNForceATA.kext

# sudo chown -R root:wheel /Extra/Extensions/AppleNForceATA.kext

4. Then load it to see if it works

# sudo kextload /Extra/Extensions/AppleNForceATA.kext

5. Now you can plug your hard drive into a sata port instead of usb

 

Software Updates:

 

1. Backed up kexts and kernel from 10.7.0 and then installed 10.7.1

2. Had to boot with kernel string pmVersion=0 since sleep enabler causes a kernel panic.

3. Enabled enhanced c1 state in bios and then added this to /Extra/org.chameleon.Boot.plist

 

GenerateCStates
Yes
GeneratePStates
Yes

 

Update: reset bios settings and I stopped getting this error. I kept the limit cpuid value disabled. It's now picking up all 4 of my cores.

 

So I used myHack 2.0 RC1 and setup a lion install on a usb thumb drive. This is my hardware:

 

Intel Q6600

8 GB RAM

mcp55p storage chipset

NVidia 8600 GTS Video Card

2 x Marvell 88E1116 PHY Gbit Ethernet Ports

Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS PCI Sound Card

250 GB Hard Drive attached via usb

 

I know there isn't any kext's for the nforce motherboards yet for lion, so I was just gonna install it to a usb drive. That worked with snow leopard using the vanilla kernel. But this kernel panic happens when I try booting from the usb thumb drive I'm installing from:

yes so resetting the bios seemed to fix the issue. The help text for the option of limitting the cpuid value to 3 where it only should be disabled for windows xp, would be for windows xp and newer OS's like windows 7 and now lion.
