    my first hackintosh - would really appreciate some help

    I installed 10.7.3 with unibeast (with MBR patch) to a free partition.

    I ran multibeast (with EasyBeast)
    Edit: this was the cause, without running multibeast I can boot normally.

    Now I can't boot except to console with -s

    -x -v hangs (see 2nd attached image)

    -x -v arch=i3863 also hangs (see 1st attached image)
    still waiting for root device

    thanks for your help :)

    -----------------------
    edit: here are more hardware details:
    Ethernet: Atheros AR8152 v2.0 Fast Ethernet
    Wifi: Atheros AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter (PCI-Express)
    Audio: Conexant SmartAudio HD

    I have a Lenovo V570 and it's been running Lion OS for more than 6 months now. I never actually installed Lion directly to the Laptop. I cloned my desktop hard drive (which is also running Lion) to the laptop hard drive. The laptop hard drive has to be formatted in MBR instead of GUID when you partition it because for some reason the Lenovo BIOS cannot read GUID partitions.

    update (install number 5):

    this time I did _not_ run Multibeast/EasyBeast and can boot normally without any flags
    (edit: I use the USB boot loader in that case)

    again I'm a bit lost, what's the best way to proceed?
    Does multibeast/easybeast have some log function to see what it will do/did so I can try each step individually?

    Do I have to write a dsdt from scratch now? :?

    Update: I am using DSDT Editor in Win now, when I get past the compiler problems I will update again.
    Update II: I fixed compiler errors and most warnings, compiled, installed the dsdt.aml using mulitbeast, but this didn't work, getting the following error right after booting:
    Memory allocation error! Addr: 0xdeadbeef, Size: 0x0, File: pci_root.c,
    Line: 101
    This is a non recoverable error! System HALTED!!!

    Update III: turned out the copy DSDT.aml I used was 0 bytes large, I copied again and it works now so I can start patching the DSDT. For reference, I selected macbook pro 8,1 definition, NullCPUPowerManagement and maolj's ethernet
