P8P67 Sabertooth package (would appreciate feedback if you own a P8P67 Sabertooth board because I can't test this one myself) http://www.mediafire...uahydjc0koyyuvk

Works great, just installed it over my running system. And Sabertooth has no bluetooth, so you can remove it from the pack, or leave it when it don't hurts anything.

Andy could you try to run team viewer and check if it works or if you get right away a message saying access denied? Because I am really not able to get it to work with ur Installation package and I don't know why. I never had this problems when I was using ##### and #####. Last time was when I used some kind of OSX Modification like iAtkos.

Changing smbios.plist and serial numbers does not help. Something must be messed up.

Sorry mate but it's working here - well it loads anyway and asks for an ID to create session etc

I don't understand what you are asking me - if you already have a bootable dmg (not sure where you even got that from) why not just boot from it?
Otherwise you can try extracting the 'Install Mac OS X Lion.app' file and follow the instructions that I have posted!

Sounds like you have some very screwed up file permissions somewhere

This looks like the downloaded Gold Master that is floating around. It's supposed to be identical to the app store release, just not in package form. I guess you could start directly with step 5. If it's the same it should work.

Ahh I see, right in that case I'd be tempted to restore that entire dvd image to a usb drive, copy the extra folder across and then install the relevant package to the usb stick to see if that works.

Andy, also a note that a 4GB USB drive does not seem to have enough space to complete step 15. The Packages folder is around 3.26GB by itself. Also for some reason I seem to be stuck in that step even with an 8GB drive. It starts to copy after entering my password, but gets stuck at the 'estimated time remaining' message :huh:

EDIT - while the message still displays, the files are copying in the background. Will continue with my Lion quest :D

EDIT 2 - No luck with the last step. Tried to install the Sabertooth package to the USB, but it ends with this message

The Installer Failed - The installer encountered an error that caused the installation to fail. Contact the software manufacturer for assistance.

Reinstall did not help. Very strange. Can you tell me which files of your pkg are needed to boot Lion (because they are not copied to the extra folder)? Are they the same like on the Boot CD (btw. do you have a current link to the most recent version)? Because I want to try to install it with a different Bootloader + ##### but I still need some of the kext files to get it work. I really need to be able to use teamviewer :blink:

The most recent links in this thread are the current ones. I'm not sure what's going on with your install but if you are messing around with other bootloaders and ##### them I'm afraid I really can't help you. Don't get me wrong I'm not being snotty it's just that I have no way of knowing what you are doing or what you have already done.
I have only tested the install method as published so if you do it any other way the odds of me being able to help you are greatly reduced.

BTW - don't put your kexts in the extra folder if you are using lion because it won't load them.

Hey I got it working. I downloaded ur Install package again and now it is working. Also for the first time I have a smbios.plist in the Extra folder and my system got a Serial Number. guess that was the problem why it did not work.

Andy, I tried with the Gold Master as suggested above and it throws an error as mentioned in my previous post (guessing the paths are slightly different). However, if you start from step 5 using the BaseSystem dmg, it installs perfectly. Thought this might help anyone else using the GM.

I'm going to suggest booting into verbose mode to see what error pops up, but for now, i'm going to ask if anyone has had any problems such as this in the past. Thanks!
