Ok didnt find any solution for USB but I made bootable DVD. After that I install your pro package. I have two problem right now.

1- I cant boot from HD every time using DVD for boot if I eject to DVD I get this message;
"Reboot and select proper Boot device or insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and press a key..." How to fix that?

2- I cant never play any videos online or in the machine every time KP coming "please restart machine with power button" How to fix that too?

PS: I know we are so trouble to you please for give us!

You have your bios set to boot from the wrong drive. I'm really not sure how much more help I can try to give you - I've tried my best but you either have trouble understanding the instructions or simply ignore them and do stuff your own way which makes it impossible to help you.

Fix your boot problem first and then worry about the videos - if you can't get as far as booting from the correct drive or installing chameleon properly then getting graphicsenabler working is the least of your worries

Is there a way to boot osx in when the controller intel is in raid mode? The other control of data 3 is not so fast for my ssd and haven't the possibility of doing raid, so I need to boot osx no in a raid strip but only with raid set controller.

Thank you

Hi Andy !

Thank you so much for your boot CD, I installed Snow Leopard on my Sabertooth P67 and it was incredibly easy !!!

The problem with this guide is that it's a lot harder than installing Snow Leo ! Do you have an easier solution ?

Again, thank you ! I still amazed at how easy it was to install Snow Leo !

haha nice one ! :D

Well, what I don't understand is: why is it so easy with Snow Leo and at the same time so 'hard' with Lion ? I thought the kext used for the 2 OSes are quite similar (at least between 10.6.8 and 10.7).

Thanks !!

Nothing to do with the kexts. It's to do with Apple changing the installation method and no longer providing dvd's. It's really not hard to make the install usb stick, there are a lot of steps but if you follow them it really is pretty straightforward.

OK, I am stuck!!!!

I have tried this method five times today and can't seem to figure out what is going on.

Every time I go to boot from my USB Stick (Have tried a HDD too) I just get a flashing "_" for hours.

I have the Marshal SATA Controller disabled and I am just the Intel Controllers for everything, Is there anything in the EFI BIOS I need to change before I proceed?

same here.. can't get the usb stick to boot. i had to use lion on my notebook to follow this guide and create the stick, as the hdd snow leopard (on my oc) was on broke last week (thanks again andy, for your great sl guide!).

lion's disk utility doesen't offer the "Erase Volume" checkbox when restoring an image, so i let it format the device again. it does still have the guid partition table, but it is not journaled. it tried to add journaling via terminal (sudo diskutil enableJournaling /dev/disk2s3) but to no avail.. i really think the journaling is the problem here, but i have no idea how to enable it. do you guys know an alternative to disk utility?

Ok so I tried this about 20 times before I went to another guide, with no luck, and then I decided to do it my own way and here is how I got up and running:

I used Uni-beast to create a lion drive and booted and installed lion. 

After install I booted into lion using the uni-beast drive to make sure it worked.

If you have a hard drive with 4kb sectors (a lot of 1.5 and 2tb hdd) like I did you need to follow this guide: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=277056&st=0#entry1805575

Once I did that I installed Andy's install package for the P8P67 Pro, rebooted and that was it!

All in all once I figured out the boot0 error thing it took just a few minutes.

Updated to 10.7.3 and it wiped out Audio. Reinstalled the audio kexts, repaired permissions and rebooted. Done.

Now I just have to mod one of my G5 cases for the ultimate hackintosh!
