Hello there to all of you.

I'm very sorry for my long abstinence, but I have been quite very busy lately. Trying to catch up with all the posts here in this thread, that have been written in the last few months ;)

Well first of all: Has anyone of you maybe made some success on your S10(e) or on any other 32-bit-only Intel Atom CPU with Lion? I know it works well on 64-bit-CPUs (including Atom and any other Core 2 * and Core i*).

@ goldenchan:
1. If you are experiencing KPs during shutdown/reboot you'll likely have to use a kernel extension called EvOReboot.kext (at it helped to me sometimes)
2. I don't know what NIC the S10-3c uses, but as far as I know it was also a common problem with Snow Leopard (-> missing driver ;) )
3. I guess it's probably the same as with no. 2 - what WiFi card are you using? The same BCM4312 that is built into the S10(e)?
4. Have you tried a PS2 kext? Maybe the one I included does not work for S10-3c, but I really don't know :D
5. that's correct - Apple never used the X3150 in any official product of them, so we won't have any chance of getting fully accelerated graphics with this model (and as far as I know there isn't a driver for that model as well - at least when I was looking about half a year ago, I didn't find one for this model :S)

About your DSDT-file: I'd always recommend using one, and it's not very hard to create your own ;) You just need a bootable Linux-Live CD and about 5 minutes time to create your own DSDT (own is always better than a file you have downloaded anywhere in the web :p) Just use this guide: http://www.lesswatts.org/projects/acpi/ ... ngDSDT.php OR just look here for more guides if the Linux-guide won't work: http://wiki.osx86project.org/wiki/index.php/DSDT

If you wan't to use 802.11n in your Ideapad, you could just simply use a genuine Apple 802.11n-card. Of course they are expensive, but sometimes with very much luck you can find very cheep ones on eBay ;) And they are working on Windows as well!

I hope I could still help you, even though your post is made quite a while ago :(

@ brian_constante:
For Lion you need at least this hardware:
- (dual core) processor with 64-bit (Intel Core 2 Duo/Quad or i3/5/7)
- hard drive actually doesn't matter :p SATA+AHCI works fine
- memory: you should at least have 2 gigs of RAM, 4 would be fine!
