Hi guys.

Just installed Mac Lion on the following config:

Mobo Intel DP55KG
6 GB Ram
i7 920
4 HDD 1.5TB each
2 HDD 1TB/1.5TB for SiliconImage 3124 pci generic card
2 DVD rw Drives
1 Blu Ray Drive
GT220 Nvidia Video Card

Installation: MUST use ##### 1.4 or won't recognize the usb ports and hence cannot choose during install process. Description of install are as giving in this forum.

- All HDDs and DVDs
-LAN with AppleIntelE1000e.kext
-Sound with VoodooHDA
-Video QE/CI with NVEnabler. Had to mod the info.plist to add the NVCAP entry for this card.
-SiliconImage Raid Card working as RAID with SiliconImage driver (website)
-MenuMeters NOT working. Cant see all cores on the MenuBar but sysctl hw.ncpu | awk '{print $2}' says 8 which is correct. Also using Activity Monitor>Window>Floating Cpu Window>Vertical you can see each CPUs activity and there are 8.

-I tested cpu performance via a mp4 conversion with Handbrake. All 8 CPUS where fully used. This cause somebody reported a single core use in a performance benchmark. Not here. All 8 cores.

- VLC or DVD Player will not present the Video part just sound. DVD or File.Weird. But iTunes DOES.

-Preview also doesn't show some graphics like the print screen or a saved jpg file.

- Thee is a way to go before releasing the Lion. ;)
