Thanks for this great project.

I'm running the latest Lion's version under core i7.

The Radeon is not working.

This is the output:

Radeon is known not to work.

All sandy bridge models should work. Only problem can be the wireless. If not the atheros, you need to replace it.

You need to check out the upgrade thread and see. I have no clue what might work. I know someone was considering it.

I think maybe you should edit the post slightly to make sure someone doesn't make the incorrect assumption.
All models with the intel i* processor should work........
There's been a few people asking about older probooks without the i processors in the forum

Re: 10.6.8 Combo Update

I can boot into my Snow Leopard install: 10.6.nada (AFAIK)
using iBoot (on a DVD-RW) and SL on a (DVD-DL)
I cant remember whether i had to use PCIRootUID=1 but i think i did use it
I followed all the instructions i could find related to installing the 10.6.8 update,
using UpdateHelper, 4530s Installer, MultiBeast/DSDT .aml (i think i did it right)

Combo Update repeatedly crashes at ~90%, but even if it completes, it breaks my installation. Whats going on here? Im having trouble finding specific posts having this issue
any help is welkome :banghead:

I will post specific kernel panics etc once i try it again. after spending a weekend trying to get this to work, i ended up having to reinstall w7 in order to have my laptop working, and the damn installer reverted my partition scheme to MBR, so im back to square 1 atm

install from the dvd, run update helper (downloadable from this site) REBOOT!!! Run the 10.6.8 combo update then before restarting use the probook installer from the install guide and you should be good to go.
Be sure to choose the correct install options from the installer especially the correct dsdt for your bios version. (it's a good idea to check the version before installing if you aren't sure which you are currently using).

Please look in the 10.7.2 laptop probook forum under the snowleopard install guide for full instructions and post there if you are still having difficulties.
