Hi,

I have been trying to install Lion using Unibeast as documented here: http://tonymacx86.blogspot.com/2011/10/ ... using.html

I have a 'Install Mac OS Lion.app' which I wrote to a USB stick.

However, when I try to install from the USB stick, it hangs on the following lines:

DSMOS has arrived
ACPI_SMC_PlatformPlugin::startForReal - waitForService(resourceMatching(AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement) timed out
AppleIntelE1000e: Ethernet Address ...

And then nothing happens.

My setup:

Intel DH55TC --onboard graphics, audio, network
Intel Core i3-540 CPU
Corsair 4GB Dual Channel DDR3 Memory

I have set my BIOS to use AHCI And S3 power managment.

I have tried various boot setting: PCIRootUID=0/1, GraphicsEnabler=Yes/No

Nothing makes a difference.

Interestingly, my Snow Leopard (10.6.0) install disk manages to install Snow leopard with iBoot (albeit with only 1024x768 graphics). However, when the same problem happens when when I reboot after an install of the 10.6.8 combo update.

Any tips would be welcome. If this system is not supported, that would also be good to know.

Thanks.

@ apurva
I don't think the graphics provided by your CPU is supported. Need to get a dedicated card.
Do a search on your CPU in the search engine window under "contribute" on the left side of the login window, just above "help". :wave:
