Yes of course follow same procedure as upgrading from GM.


Found a solution for your Applications issue.....
Keep your applications in the separate disk and right click on each application to create an alias (approx. 123 kb) and copy it to the application folder of your Lion and Voila!!!

For your migration issue use this Info.plist instead of the one I gave above in the Guide....please let me know if it works or not.

It is exactly in the same location and I hope you are trying to find it in basesystem and not in InstallESD


I dunno. I did a cumbersome work around. What I can say is that when I went into which ever Packages folder there was no OSInstall.mpkg. I think it was "OSInstall.pkg". Two different file names.

Keep in mind this was on the App Store download. nawcom's simple command line method worked fine on all other Lions including GM... just not retail. Did your method work on the Retail Lion or are you just assuming it will work because it worked on GM?

I havent tried that out yet. However, I cannot start DSDT Auto-Patcher. "To open "DSDT Auto-Patcher," you need to install a Java runtime, but you are not connected to the Internet."

I too downloaded from the appstore and mounted the Basesystem.dmg then deleted the Packages link and copied packages folder but there was an OSInstall.mpkg there.....and ya my method works fine even in Final because I am using final version and sending this message from it 

I installed, but I cannot seem to find my internet connection in the settings app. Any thoughts?

Edit: I first installed the Lion Extra.pkg, then Chameleon, then Realtek Ethernet Patch, rebooted using the USB media, but no internet detected.

Did you reboot?
and have you connected the ethernet cable to the realtek Port?

The Realtek port? As far as I'm aware, there is only one ethernet port on my computer?

Thank you :rolleyes:

Edit: Umm.. how do I access the root of my Lion installation? The only Drive/Partition I can't see in Finder is "Mac", where I installed Lion.

Will I always encounter all this text and stuff when I boot to Mac?

Edit: Ahh, {censored}. Now it wont boot at all. I choose Mac in Chameleon on boot, and I just keep getting stuck on this black-and-white text. "System uptime in nanoseconds: xxxxxx"

Did you install any other things like new kexts or something?

Try booting from installation media again...

Edit:
If you can't get it inside Lion then reinstall and run this package after installation.....no need of any other post installation stuff
