don't forget, guys (and gals?) - you need a 64 bit Atom CPU !!!! The kernel will boot on a 32 bit Atom CPU, but Lion really will not be fun! It is made for 64 bit CPUs ONLY !! Many things will not work (as reported by others before - I'm just repeating/ reminding) ..

From what I know most Netbooks have been, are, and will be sold with 32 bit Atom CPUs. Only very few models are equipped with 64 bit ones, simply because Netbooks in general are meant to be lower end quality and cost (incl. by default little RAM <4GB which simply does not require 64 bit).

at least your Atom 330 supports 64 bit instructions. Try different boot-loaders. Move Apple IntelCPU kexts completely out of S/L/E for now.

Awesome work here. Thank you.

*EDIT

Will there be a 10.6.7 kernel update?


10.6.7 Atom Kernel



This link points to a 10.7.0 kernel. I'm running 10.6.7
...am I missing something here? Is this 10.7.0 kernel to be used on a 10.6.7 system?
(NBI is failing me and not patching my 1000HE's kernel - need another way around this)

Yep


Okay...installed it and rebooted. Some message about a 64bit kernel. Could find no way to get around this message. Trashed install.
Starting from scratch.
