I'm trying to install OS X Lion for a few days without a success. I have already installed Windows7 and planned to have a dual-boot (Win7 x64 and OS X Lion 10.7.3).
- Gigabyte GA EP43-DS3L (bios version F8)
- Intel quad-core Q9300
- DDR2 Muskin XP2-8000 2×2GB
- Sapphire Radeon 5870 Vapor-X 1GB
- WD 500GB WD5000AAKS (1× Primary NTFS 100GB (Win7 x64), 1× Primary NTFS 100GB, 1× Extended unpartitioned space (from what is left))
With the help of DSDTParser (under Win7 on the same machine) and this thread (viewtopic.php?t=35559), I created a DSDT.aml using two patches:
1. GA EP43-DS3L (http://olarila.com/Packs/Gigabyte/GA%20EP43-DS3L.txt
2. ALC888 (http://olarila.com/Patches/HDEF%20Gigab
Three erros was auto-fixed (i attached the exported DSDT.aml file in DSDT.zip). I copied the file later on on the bootable Lion USB under /Extra folder.
I followed the instructions on the following link and created a bootable Lion USB with my working Lion VMware machine:http://themacmob.com/how-to-create-a-bo
My last try was creating a bootable Lion USB with the Lion 10.7.3 Retail (dmg) (the install result is the same using version 10.7 and 10.7.1).
When I boot the Lion bootable USB (without any boot parameters), I get to the line ** Device in slot: SLOT--1 ** and then a black screen blinks (I waited for more then 30minutes - every now and then there was a welcome screen just for a very short period of time <0.5s).
When I use flags -v -x before booting, there is a "BootCacheControl: Unable to open /var/db/BootCache.playlist: 2 No such file or directory" followed by one &Bug (see the "Boot Log.jpg" in the attached Error Logs 3-4.zip"), then I get the same flashing screen which eventually (after a few seconds) shows a welcome screen without any further flashing. When I click Next, there is a message that the error occured and the log is shown. I attached the log in four pieces in "Error Logs 1-2.zip" and Error "Logs 3-4.zip" (sorry for the bad quality).
I don't know what to do next. Is there anything helpful in the log?
Please for help.
