Please report when you have something. I'm planning on upgrading my OS soon.
Well, I can tell you what didn't work...
After the update my monitor went black but I was still able to VNC into it and see everything. The only thing that seemed to break was the built in graphics card support.
Up to this point I have NOT used a DSDT file or graphics injector with Lion. Using VNC I grabbed the DSDT that I was using with 10.5.8 and stuck it in the root. Booted and it locked up at "Initializing PCI Devices" or something like that, one of the last steps of the verbose boot... I couldn't get past this and when I would boot from the recovery partition that was installed with Lion I was unable to see the DSDT file in Terminal to delete it. I ended up doing a full system restore from the recovery partition using my last Time Machine backup prior to the 10.7.2 update. Fortunately the TM restore worked flawlessly and I'm back on 10.7.1 as if nothing happened. I don't have time right now to pursue this any farther so I'll be on 10.7.1 for a little longer...
Good Luck! (Maybe NVkush would work?)

Thanks to cubswinfllclssic for the post here.
I installed the NVEnabler.kext (64-bit) in the first page of this thread and turned OFF Graphics Enabler in the Chameleon settings and removing the EFI inject string from Chameleon while still on 10.7.1. Restarted and everything still worked great. Installed 10.7.2 and it booted right up! Had to reinstall AppleHDA.kext to get sound going again.
So quick recap: No DSDT, No Graphics Enabler, No graphics EFI Inject String, Use NVEnabler.kext, Install 10.7.2 update, reinstall AppleHDA.kext
iCloud is there and working!

Hello to everyone. Right ok never really used a Mac before but from what I have used and seen of it its definitely worth the upgrade. I have the following hardware
Motherboard: Asus P5N7A-VM (stock bios, overclocked), GPU: Zotac Geforce GT 430, Processor: Pentium Dualcore E5200 2.50Ghz O/C 3.45Ghz, Ram: OCZ Platinum 4GB, HDD: 2TB (1.5TB, 500GB)
Will this work with the new Lion OS? (got it ready on ebay to buy)
I have read the install instructions provided at the beginning of this thread and feel it is something I can achieve. I am going to keep my Windows 7 (500GB HDD) just incase of problems and use another 500GB for Mac. Will it interfere with my overclock settings? Can I get all the hardware working?,
I know its so many questions but I would rather it be I try this afew times and get it perfect then come on here whining this don't work/that don't work.
Any input welcome!

Ok have successfully installed Lion 10.7.2 via this method ... http://tonymacx86.bl...lion-using.html ... and even get internet functionatility, USB, etc straight away without issue. However it then saids I have to run ##### and select the DSDT for my board which is where I am having troubles. Do I require the DSDT for my dualcore?, what should I be doing to get it boot without the USB Lion install? I know this may sound silly to people but before attempting this I never had anything to do with a Mac but I am prepared to learn. What DSDT's do I need to install?
Please advise someone.

sudo chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions/IOUSBFamily.kext
sudo chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions/IOUSBMassStorageClass.kext
This allowed my keyboard to work (not the mouse). So I had to format the hard drive ahead of time and then just navigate the installation procedures using the keyboard only (tab, spacebar, and enter).
Then I was able to boot into the new drive (10.7.3) via ######. The vanilla installation seems OK but obviously graphics/sound are a problem. I literally just started troubleshooting tonight and my first few attempts at using ###### to install the DSDT I had for my 10.5.7 installation are failing miserably (black screen after boot, sometimes can still VNC but sometimes cannot). I'll try Ufdah's suggestion above. There's also another possible solution here:
But I think using ###### to install the DSDT is adding files (such as fakesmc) or patching things that are breaking the install. I haven't narrowed it down yet. I may need to do things more manually (which is a stretch for me since I barely know what I'm doing and haven't messed with my Hackintosh installation in about 2 years or whenever 10.5.7 was released; I never could get 10.6.x working well with this mobo). I've now botched this Lion install pretty bad so I just reinstalled, cloned, and will mess around again tomorrow.
Sorry - I know this isn't very helpful but I'm just waiting for my clone to finish... Will maybe post again tomorrow (I leave town so maybe won't try again until next week).
BTW, I'm using BIOS 519.

I created a ##### USB key using Tony Mac's method. However when I tried to boot from the resulting USB key I got to the first screen and
then could proceed no further as both the USB keyboard and mouse had frozen.
A bit of googling revealed the following :
"Before you use the installer on your USB key, run ##### Lion Edition and point it at your USB drive.Under the Kexts and Bootloaders
header, drop down to the Miscellaneous section and tick "IOUSBFamily rollback". Run ##### and viola! your usb keyboard and mouse work on
the installer and in the resulting lion installation!"
Having completed the install to a fresh partition from the USB key, I then went into ##### and installed the following kexts : EvOreboot,
Fakesmc, IOAHCIBlockStorageInjector and JMicron36x.
Further googling (Realtek ALC1200 ICH10 working kext) led me to the ALC1200 kext which I installed with the help of Kext Utility.Sound now
So, no DSDT but I still have the following problems :
It doesn't sleep properly, screen goes off but fans still spinning, and it will not wake (this is no problem for me).
I can only get it to boot in 32 bit mode - if I try 64 it panics.
Hope this helps someone,

I made a CCC backup of my SL install and decided to take the plunge to Lion, or at least try. Since this board is old now, and much less supported than the Gigabyte boards, I figure I would have my work cut out for me, and I did... but I was able to get it working on 10.7.3.
I used my existing DSTD and changed only the NVidia setting to "Parent" to get around the black screen on the 10.7.2 that I started with. I used the ###### app to make a USB stick from the App Store download.
Based on the advice I seen in the forums, I used the IOUSBFamily and IOUSBMassStorage kexts from 10.6.8 after not having a working KB/Mouse. The only other major issues I had post install were Audio and Wake from Sleep.
Audio has been a real treat... after hours (literally) over three days of trying every AppleHDA I could find with or without HDAEnabler, VoodooHDA, LegacyAppleHDA.. and patching/building my own with a HDA Wizard tool.. I finally have some sound output using an old 10.6.3 Kext with HDAEnabler.
On my SL install, I had a LegacyAppleHDA kext in my Extra folder that seemed to somehow work in conjunction with an AppleHDA kext under S/L/E. It doesn't make sense to me, but changing or removing either one would result in no sound or volume control. I have the HDEF patch in the DSDT, and never used the HDAEnabler until now.
My audio has a background sound that seems to be picking up interference from events on the screen. You can hear network traffic, moving the mouse over the dock, etc as a static in the speakers. It's not very loud and is not present over top of music, etc... but it's annoying none the less.
My sleep works as far as sleeping, but wake up will power on the system for a few seconds and shut it back down. I can't find anything in any logs. Not suffering any CMOS resets or anything like that. On SL, my sleep and wakeup worked good, even reconnecting my USB devices without any errors. (which took me a while to perfect)
Anyway, I'm hoping to find someone here who has a AppleHDA.kext that is patched for HDEF on the P5N7A-VM being used with Lion that's not dependant on the HDAEnabler. I've tried everything that I can find, and I haven't hit the right combination. Many show a DSDT patch different than my DSDT but any attempt to modify mine to match (even while substituting in the correct address space) seems to cause a KP. Everything I find seems to be created for the Asus P5Q that also used the ALC1200 audio.
Even people with Apple MACs are having wake from sleep issues with 10.7.3 so I'm not sure where to begin with that.
I'm by no means an expert at this, I just succeed by trial and error and some educated guessing.
I am more than willing to help anyone with this motherboard who are having other issues... just hoping someone can provide me with a magic AppleHDA.kext that will work in Lion properly without the HDAEnabler.
If anyone has sleep/wake working, I'd love to hear about your setup as well.
Thanks in advance!

Try adding darkwake=0 to boot.plist

No way out of the loop other than the reset key or hard powering off and then turning it back on.
