Heu guys,

I'm trying to install Lion DP4 on my Vostro 1500. I have followed multiple guides and seem to always get stuck at one point. During the actual installation for Lion, my laptop completely freezes. Mouse stops working and system does not respond. Checking the installer log, it freezes at unpacking packages or extracting them. Hopefully, either I'm doing something wrong or there is a solution to this.

I managed to install DP4 on my gigabyte G31m-s2l desktop without a hitch, everything working. Just can't install it on my Vostro 1500 yet. I tried so many variations of kexts, install styles, and etc... It always ends up freezing randomly during the actual installation part, where the system is extracting packages. Can anyone please help me out? This is DP4 on Vostro 1500; it boots fine, freezes during install. Help please!!

Thanks

Hi,

That seems to be symptomatic of Dell Laptops.
