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?

Thank you, that worked well. Now my ethernet isn't even detected so there's more work to do...

Alright, got my ethernet working by using the 10.6 IONetworkingFamilykext. The only issue I am having now is random Finder crashes so I have to keep relaunching it.

I have successfully loaded Lion Gold Master on my Dell Latitude E6400.


I created a Lion USB installer. The installer is a 8GB USB GUID partition that automatically gets named as Mac OS X Base system when it is restored from Base System.dmg on Lion Gold Master. Then I , copied fakesmc, ACPIPlatform..., IOPCI... in /S/L/E on the installer drive. I used Kext Wizard which also repair /S/L/E permissions on the installer.




Kext Wizard that allows you to load kexts to other drives and repair other drives (from the one you are booted into) is a great help.




As I was loading Lion on an MBR partition I replaced:

/Volumes/Mac\ OS\ X\ Base\ System/System/Installation/Packages/OSInstall.mpkg and

/Volumes/Mac\ OS\ X\ Base\ System/System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/Install.framework/Frameworks/OSInstall.framework/Versions/A/OSInstall

--on the installer drive with modified files (obtained by googling)




Then I booted into the USB installer using Chameleon-2.0-RC5-r1083.pkg loaded on my existing SL drive, with -v -f flags. Then O followed regular install process. Once install is through I booted into existing SL and copied fakesmc, ACPIPlatform..., IOPCI... in /S/L/E on the new Lion Drive with Kext Wizard and repaired /S/L/E permissions. I also copied com.apple.Boot.plist from my old SL into /E of the new Lion Drive and repaired permissions on /E as well. This last step is essential to avoid kernel panic or keyboard freeze at login time after loading Chameleon on the new Lion Drive.




After initial boot up, for whatever system that didnt work, I used my old SL kexts, such as IONetworkingFamily.kext, IO80211Family.kext, Intel82566MM.kext, VoodooHDA, VoodooSDHC, AppleACPIBatteryManager.kext




To enable native ntfs, I used iBlacky method of copying mount_ntfs to mount_ntfs.org and saving the follwing script to mount_ntfs:

#!/bin/sh

/sbin/mount_ntfs.orig -o rw "$@“




For this too I had to load the kext from SL.




I now have a fully working Lion Gold Master. As it doesnt have nvidia, I cannot enjoy all graphic applications, but it does better than my SL, as I able to open jpegs with Preview.app.







I can't guarantee that this procedure will work for you I have only tested it on my Asus P6T SE with Intel i7 920.
Im not responsible for any damage this might causes to your pc.



Video Tut:


This method works with Lion GM.
Tested on Asus p6t SE.

Thanks for the great guide!!
I first installed it on a blank partition (on a different disk), just to be sure i could access it if anything went wrong, then installed it right over the top of snow leopard with no problems at all. Sweet!!!







Asus P5K-E Wifi/AP
Intel Core2Quad Q6600
Asus nVidia GeForce 9400 GT
Chameleon RC5

@ gotojanoo ---> Copy them from your SL installation. And make sure you can see what you're copying.

Type in terminal (without sudo -s):

defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles TRUE - (then return)
killall Finder

Then restart finder. To hide the secret files again replace TRUE with FALSE

Respect the upper and lower case!

I followed this guide exactly. In the end, when the "Boot" partition loads, there is a wait at

[PCI Configuration Begin]

and then the screen goes blank (no kernel panic). Any idea why this happens?

Been lurking for about a year now. :(

Just wanted to log in just to say thanks for this guide. Followed it word for word and I'm now successfully upgraded to OSX 10.7 GM.

On an old-ish system, using an ASUS P5Q motherboard, did a straight upgrade. Only thing that needed reinstalling was the sound, USB, Ethernet still work perfectly for me. :)

It's a desktop, I don't bother sleeping it so i'm not too pushed about that.
So thanks again. :)

I've got a very strange problem-I've got the installer booted fine off the flash drive, but at the initial language selection screen (with the animated text), I'm unable to continue. My cursor is moving fine, but I cannot scroll in the box or click the continue button. Any thoughts?

Edit: turns out the click was registering, albeit very slowly.

Now I have the message - "Mac OS X cannot be installed on this computer."

I have a DSDT for my motherboard, the Gigabyte P35-DS3L. I also have the NullCPUPowerManagement.kext, because if I don't, the system kernel panics right as it tries to start.

start in safe mode and it should work. then change the Chameleon settings... something to do with graphics settings not being correct... methinks

Yes you are right, I connected my laptop's HDMI port to a LCD and I could see the installer.

I too had this error ...

Solution -
Replace OSInstall.mpkg in System/Install/Packages with this one (courtesy : MaLd0n)

I have a wierd problem. I managed to install 10.7 on my Sony Vaio with almost everything working (except LAN Marvel Yukon 88E8059) but there are few problems :

1) Atheros card is unstable in connection (using the same kext that worked in SL)
2) Internal display won't work, but I can see full QE/CI for my ATI Radeon 5470m (512MB) on an LCD connected via HDMI (with translucent bar, etc etc)

I have added ATIConfig=Hoolock and GraphicsEnabler=Yes in com.apple.boot.plist. Any help appreciated.

Thanks to the help of various folks, I was able to get the Lion installer to allow me to install, and the install completed successfully.

However, I can't boot. Using -v, the system gets stuck repeatedly at the same point "waiting for DSMOS" (sorry for the screenshot, but I figure it's the best way). Any ideas?

Just to confirm.. This method also works on GIGABYTE EX58-UD5
The only thing I do is install chameleon from my kakewalk 2.2 in order to add all my motherboard needs and then run chameleon Rc5 1003. I have everything working.

Thanks for tutorial!!!

I noticed in your instructions that you have two step 5's and two step 6's.

Are your steps supposed to run consecutively from 1 to 9?

Thanks
