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.
- 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 !!!

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.
Dell Studio 1558
Processor- Intel i5 M450(2.4GHz)
Graphics Card- ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470
My Graphics Card is not working(it is showing 1024x768)
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

I mean,where to check if i got it installed?
update: It worked but i cannot use ps2 keyboard and usb mouse on installation (

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

use these commands:
Find what hdd osx is on and what partition:
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
