Mac OS X 10.7 Lion Developer Previews 1 and 2 currently do not install on older Macs with unsupported Core Duo and Core Solo hardware, but by performing a simple hack you can get these machines to boot Lion.

Apparently the only thing preventing Lion from working on these 32-bit Macs is a single file that is easily removed, located here in a Lion installation:

/System/Library/CoreServices/PlatformSupport.plist


All you can do is install Mac OS X Lion on a Core 2 Duo machine and move the installation to a Core Duo or Core Solo machine, then delete the PlatformSupport.plist file. This at least works with the first Developer Preview. is the same with hackintosh too.


The problem is I have no other Core 2 Duo PC
so without a C2D,is it possible and how to??????

boot up your lion install pen drive, when it loads , open "terminal" from the "tools" menu,
type "cd /Volumes"
then "ls"
locate that Platform***.plist and delete it

Unfortunately, that doesn't work, the installer has its own set of checks, I tried every which way to try and install it straight to my CD MacBook, but alas I ended up having to use my work's C2D iMac.

Sorry =(

you don't have to be sorry about it
installing Lion requires a bit trying and learning

since you are installing Lion on a real mac ,then chameleon does not work
to bypass the checks ,there's another way, download this patched OSInstall http://www.insanelym...p...st&id=92897 and put it into you lion install drive "System/Install/Packages",replace the original one

lacoste111 - unfortunately the problem is with trying to boot the installer. I think we will have to wait for release and kernel source

He's asking about a Core Duo, not a Core2Duo. They're not the same. The internal architecture is different.
