Hello, I followed this basic guide for using Unibeast and Multibeast to install on a Lenovo SL 400 laptop. http://www.tonymacx86.com/61-unibeast-install-os-x-mountain-lion-any-supported-intel-based-pc.html and it worked.

At step 3, where I boot using the usb key, into the OS, everything works, except for Wifi.

Then at step 4, where I setup multibeast. I choose EasyBeast, and it comes back up but keyboard and trackpad stop working.

So I reinstall and try it with just the Chimera v2.0.1 r2109 + FakeSMC.kext options at step 4 and the same thing happens.

At that point I tried adding every combination of mostly everything in the Boot Options section namely PCI Root ID Fix, PCI Configuration Fix, Use KernelCache and installation failed on those extra options everytime.

Any suggestions?

Here are the specs on the SL400 btw. It didn't seem terribly useful http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/detail.page?LegacyDocID=MIGR-75229

Most laptops use the PS2 interface for keyboard/mouse. There is no built-in support for PS2 in OS X, so you have to add drivers (kext) for it.

I think your laptop has Synaptics touchpad + Ultranav. So, you should be able to use my driver for keyboard/touchpad: https://github.com/RehabMan/OS-X-Voodoo-PS2-Controller

Be sure to read the README.md and follow the install instructions.

For a laptop, Easybeast should be considered a short term solution. Eventually, you will want to implement full power management.
