    DELL XPS L501X - Bios A8 - MacOSX LION 10.7.3

    Hello there, hi everybody

    i'm stuck with my hackintosh trying to install OSX LION 10.7.3 on my XPS L501X.

    1- I created a bootable usb stick from my Macbookpro (appstore/laptop option with unibeast)
    2- i booted on it pressing "C" key with the mac
    3- i choose to install MacOSX Lion on an USB Hard Drive
    4- the installation went well, i booted on the Usb HardDrive => No problem ! I succeed to launch MacOSX from the usb HDD.
    5- opened Multibeast, checked the box to make my HDD bootable

    Here I am with a proper and bootable install of MacOSX LION on a HDD. Now, if i put the HDD in my DELL XPS L501X, it boots on the HDD, but the process keeps stuck on the booting loading image of MacOSX...

    Tried some "-v GraphicsEnabler=No busratio=20 arch=i386 -x32" and i get stuck on boot as you can see on the image attached.

    Does somebody has a solution in mind ?

    Thanks a lot

    cheers from france

    ps : attached my stock sdst.aml extracted from win7 with DSDTE

    Hey, thanks for you answer.

    Yes I tried the -x flag, but still an error in the booting process.

    I must precise that I neither modified my dsdt.aml nor added some extra/extensions folder.

    But do you think this is the issue ? Should I edit the dsdt.aml and if yes, in which way ?

    Using Multibeaset/easybeast is useless because I can boot only from the Mac (not from my DELL)

    Thank you

    I think that adding some specs might be better !

    So, from Ubuntu, I exctracted my DSDT.aml, decompiled it (DSDT.dsl), and cat a lspci.txt with the details of my xps specs.

    maybe it helps ?
