I've been on a couple of forums browsing and looking up answers during my installation of Lion on my desktop. Thanks to folks like you, it went off without a single issue!
However my laptop is... Let's just say nowhere nearly as kind.
First off, I am not using a distro. It's a App Store version of Lion. I install it using UniBeast 1.4.0. Things go ok during install, and upon booting to the desktop immediately after, the graphics card (Intel HD3000 ) is recognized perfectly, the resolution is set correctly out of the box. I have to install a kext for my wireless (Atheros AR5B93) to get it working, and it works perfectly after that. I install a VooDooHDA kext for sound, again, works perfectly. At this point, aside from sleep functionality, I have a perfectly good install of OS X it would seem. But not quite. Here are my issues.
If I try to boot without the UniBeast/Lion USB in my laptop, it gives a boot error and doesn't even try to start up. If I use ANY boot loader, doesn't matter which, it causes a kernel panic without fail, every time, no matter what flags are used. I can live with having to boot via USB, however I would obviously prefer to not have to do that. Would love some help here! I have searched high and low, every solution I have found, does not work with this machine.
But what I really need help with, is getting 10.7.4 to work. I cannot install it via update, combo, or even installing a friend's copy straight from the App Store (My copy is 10.7.3, his is 10.7.4 ). Attempting to install 10.7.4 any way shape or form, causes a kernel panic. In verbose mode, it gets to a Synaptics PS/2 line, and hangs. It gives no error following that, it just hangs indefinitely. If I don't use verbose mode, it kernel panics. If I update 10.7.3 to 10.7.4, it installs, then wants to reboot, and does the same. I can't seem to find any solution to either of these errors, and would love if you guys can maybe help?
