I can't seem to get hold of a BaseSystem.dmg. I downloaded countless Lion installation DMGs, copied the contents folder that was inside of the Install Mac OS X Lion.app for each DMG, but it simply does not contain any such DMG. I'm starting to feel hopeless.

I installed lion on Hp 7700 using iatkos l2. I'm not mac smart. used usb boot loader on win 7 to format and load iatkos image on usb drive. then booted to cd booter and selected the usb. booted then went to utilties>format to guid and then options selected what I needed and installed no problems.I have win7,win8 and lion installed on the same drive.

- /Contents/SharedSupport/InstallESD.dmg
- mount that image
- go to terminal and enter "open /Volumes/Mac\ OS\ X\ Install\ ESD/BaseSystem.dmg" without the quotes... et voila !

ALL EXPLAINED IN THE 1st POST !!!

Hey Guys ,
I have successfully installed Mac OS X Lion from the Retail app Mac OS X Lion.app from the Appstore using the Maldon Guide by Restoring the BaseSystem.dmg on a usb(16gb) from a VMWare Mac.
After Installation I followed whatever was given there but none of it worked.
My Specs:-
Dell Studio 1558
Processor- Intel i5 M450(2.4GHz)
RAM-4GB
Graphics Card- ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470
My Graphics Card is not working(it is showing 1024x768)
No Sound.
Glitchy Screen..
whenever i install Kexts using Kext Utility or ###### and Restart I get Kernel Panic.
And That whatever be done does'nt go.
I have reinstalled Mac Lion 4 times but still never get anything to work.
The System shows Graphic to be 3MB.
Sometimes the TrackPad doesnt work after KExt,###### installation
Please Help

for keyboard: voodoops2 kext (attached) but youll have to get in SLE of the installation HDD somehow. and then redo the kernelcache. just did this for my install :) format a flashdrive to fat32/hfs/ntfs and put the kext on there and then you can use the install dvd to move it to the installed lion. or if you still have windows on the pc, then you can read the kext from there at do it that way.

thats strange for the mouse though, usb keyboard or mouse almost always work. try w/o the keyboard (you dont really need a keyboard until the user setup)

kext is for lion for sure and 64/32bit

download the binarys of cham here. download and extract the zip and then use terminal to cd into the extracted folder like "cd " and then drop in the folder extracted.

use these commands:

Find what hdd osx is on and what partition:
diskutil list

Install boot0 to the MBR:
./fdisk440 -f boot0md -u -y /dev/rdisk0

Install boot1h to the bootsector of the EFI partition:
dd if=boot1h of=/dev/rdisk0s1

rdisk0s3 is the partition osx is on(the s3).
rdisk0 is the hdd osx is on

+ I have this command when i boot from USB but after press enter it's gone and chameleon boot working in command line mod:

/extra/com.apple.boot.plist is depreciated.
Please use the file /Extra/org.chameleon.Boot.plist instead.
Press any key to continue.


---------------------------------EDIT--------------------------------
---- FIXED -> rename com.apple.boot.plist to org.chameleon.Boot.plist in /Extra fixed chameleon prompt.
---- FIXED -> use Extra_MacBookPro8_1.zip and NullCPUPowerManagement n' LegacyAHCI attached in first post saved my **s :D

Thanks to all opensourceMind ppl for sharing.
