I am trying to install Lion on my Intel D945/Pentium D 820 CPU setup.

I have removed /System/Library/PlatformSupport.plist from DP build a390, but the system still hangs/black screen at "Loading Darwin x86_64" or similar at the end of the boot dialog. Is it also necessary to supplement boot.efi?

Successfully installed Lion with a Core Duo? If so, would you mind sharing the build number and necessary modifications? Thanks in advance.

pentium D are not "core" they are an older architechture so you need a legacy kernel. but there are no legacy kernels for lion yet.

Yep -- sorry for the spam: it's a seldom used machine and I was think D was the desktop variant of core duo. Too much chip branding...

Will try some things and reply here with any success.
