What I did from the begining:[2011/Aug/08]tonymacx86's method:
- "Install Mac OS X Lion.app" keeps saying “This version of Mac OS X 10.7 cannot be installed on this computer”.
- Tried lots of smbios.plist, no luck.
- My system SSD is too small to save "Install Mac OS X Lion.app". I saved it on an external USB HDD.
- My T60p doesn't meet these requirements: "Install Mac OS X Lion.app" in /Applications; Chimera bootloader.
- So, this method may don't work for me.MaLd0n's method:
- The installer partition was created for another desktop which went all good.
- Kexts in /E/E: fakesmc.kext, NullCPUPowerManagement.kext
- smbios.plist: tried MacPro3,1, iMac10,1
- DSDT: tried w/ same from 10.6.x, and w/o any
- Booting by -v, installer stuck at
BootCacheControl: Unable to open /var/db/BootCache.playlist: 2 no such file or directory
Bug:launchctl.c:2408 (24687):30: cdefd =open (g_overrides_db_patch....
- Booting by -x -v, some KP about CPU occurred after file copy started.[Updated 2011/Aug/09]
- Original Chameleon (even the newest RC5) leads the stalls described above. Use netkas's bootloader solved it. (Reference
- The Extra_Lion.pkg in MaLd0n's method includes a mach_kernel whose version is unknown. I skip this kernel and use the original one in InstallESD.dmg. (See this tur
Step 8 )
- Kexts needed in /E/E: fakesmc, NullCPUPowerManagement, OpenRestartHalt, VoodooPS2Controller(64bit) w/ PS2NubResults:
(Without DSDT injection)
- Keyboard: 64bit VoodooPS2Controller, or boot arch=i386 to use the 32bit kext.
- UltraNav: Neither 64bit nor 32bit VoodooPS2Controller worked. not even the ThinkpadUltraNav of mine.
- Ultrabay ATA: HDD/out of box, DVD/not tested yet
- LAN: out of box
- WIFI: works. added device id directly into /S/L/E/IO80211/Plugin/AirAtheros_21. (May switch to Legacy.kext method later)
- Bluetooth: not touched yet
- Sound: not touched yet.
- Video: no QE/CI. RadeonHD.kext didn't work.
- Restart: need OpenRestartHalt.kextNext:
- the QE, the whole QE, and nothing but the QE[Updated 2011/Aug/10]QE Worked just like former version !!!
