Hi! Just two questions:
1. If I erase my partition where SL was, it's erasing the chameleon from it, right?

So after the install, I can't boot lion partition...

2. So how I install Chameleon to it, and how to copy Extra folder and DSDT and other stuff after the install?

(Sorry for my english)

Gives me the same error. Any suggestions?


On your boot partition go to extra->extensions and see if there is a voodooPS2 kext

Boot with the install partition you made (I guess), or just use a bootCD. You need to install chameleon from within Lion.

That's why you have to install chameleon on both SL and Boot partitions so when you install lion on your SL partition you will still have chameleon on your Boot partition.

So, today I installed Lion twice on my computer. First time just to test it on an older hard disk and the second time I replaced my Snow Leopard. Yet, there are two issues I get:

About My Mac says something about "MacBook Air (original)" which is probably just a cosmetic issue and wake up from sleep doesn't work. Since I have some older Kexts in my Extra/Extensions folder I might try some newer ones to get wake up from sleep working.

Besides I have an i7 920 on a P6TSE but in "About This Mac" I see an Intel Xeon processor (and a writing that says Macbook Air). I attached a screenshot... How can I fix this to see something like your "About this mac"?
Thanks!!


As I posted above, I have the same issue with the "MacBook Air" thing, yet, my Lion tells me the correct CPU. Just google for SMcputype and put the correct lines into your smbios.plist.

//EDIT: The computer justs need a little action (mouse click) so the black screen disappears and it wakes up from sleep.

No. I have only these: ALC8xxHDA.kext y FakeSMC.kext.

Get the matching files from "Post Installation" and put those Kexts to Extra/Extensions.

Put this in your SMBIOS.plist and you're good to go:

<key>SMcputype</key>
	<string>1793</string>

<key>SMserial</key>
	<string>H09300AS4PC</string>

Just check that you don't have those entries twice in your SMBIOS.plist and replace existing ones.

If your audio and network isn't working yet, get those Kexts from Still Win Fan and install them one after another with Kext Utility (just drag on drop onto Kext Utility icon).

Got stuck at the point after it checks FakeSMC.kext. Here's the screenshot http://i.imgur.com/0d5gg.jpg

Any ideas?

Okay, got it solved. It was because of bad permission on FakeSMC.kext. Fixed it and running Lion now. Thanks for the guide!

Thanks. I used your guide or at least some of it to make a GM USB Installer. Apple was sneaky and made the Base System invisible.

It worked fine. No probs.

Well even though Lion is supposed to run on Xeons, I can't install this. The install starts but I guess at some point there is a system check of some kind and I get the error message "This version of Mac OS X 10.7 cannot be installed on this computer".

It's the machine in my signature_maybe I need a modified OSInstall?
