Hello, I think there is a problem with the memory detection, I have 12GB of memory installed but when I boot, only 3555MB are detected in the corner of Chameleon and also in the OS (Lion). Windows detects it all just fine. Might be worth saying that a have a laptop, Asus G55VW, with Intel series 7 chipset. I can give more specs if requested. Thanks!

I figured the bdmesg log was pretty big so i put it on pastebin: http://pastebin.com/3RvTspx2 My specs are: CPU: 3rd Gen Intel i7-3610QM @ 2.3 GHz Chipset: Mobile Intel HM77 Express RAM: 12GB DDR3 SDRAM 1600 MHz SO DIMM 204-pin I have no idea what kind of motherboard i have, CPU-Z shows only "G55VW" Anything else needed, dont hesitate to ask. Thanks!

Same here, same system (ASUS G55VW) Took out the extra SO-DIMM, so running with 2x4GB (8GB). OS is reporting 8 GB in 'About this Mac', however, Activity Monitor only shows 3.5GB. bdmesg attached.

Thanks for confirming that it's not my laptop that's broken. A bit offtopic, but have you had luck with the GTX 660m?
