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


Installed a kext for my gfx card.

I did, but now I have to press F8 and select the USB as boot device. If I dont, I just end up on a Black Screen with a white flashing "_". And booting Lion from the USB took a long time. And what do you know, Lion froze.

Edit: Okay.. i think my system is f***'ed. I formatted the Mac-partition, so now I only have Windows Installed. However, when I boot, I'm stuck at the black screen with the flashing "_". I certainly hope this isnt permanent?

I got the GM working after unsuccessful 43 attempts including the loss of my important files of company ....lucky I had a backup.

Nyways next time try the post-installation steps I mentioned in the Guide.....and do not install the Gfx driver....I'll find a solution for it....

When I install Chameleon, is there any specific Packages I have to install other than "Chameleon"? (Like Theme, PrefPane etc..)


Edit: Oh, and btw, it was that kext I installed that screwed it up.

Edit 2: I also got dual monitors, forgot to mention, if it has anything to say.

Edit 3: Uhm.. I still cant get internet, full rezolution, USB3.0 or anything..

I don't bother installing the pref pane or themes. All you need is the boot loader and an Extra folder. If you want a theme go to the The Theme Park. You have to log into the site to see pictures of all the themes in the main forum menu. They are all better than the crappy ones in the Chameleon installer.

Select all the features in Chameleon.....to get rid of the writings popping up while booting and get a gui....
Download ##### and install the following:
1) Audio --> ALC8xxHDA
2) Miscellaneous --> USB 3.0
3) Network --> Realtek Gigabit Ethernet 2.0.6
4) backup your Lion on a separate HD and then simply download Nvidia Quadro 4000 Mac Drivers, open the package contents then open the contents of the driver package and unzip the archive within the driver package, copy NVDAResman.kext and NVDAGF100Hal.kext into your System/Library/Extensions/ folder, if you have trouble overwriting the existing files simply send the two in the Extensions folder to the trash, empty the trash and copy the two files again. Delete Geforce.kext and run Kext Helper then run Disk Utility and verify and repair permissions, restart.

Do you have a link for Kext Helper and a Chameleon GUI? Also, where/how do I verify and repair permissions in Disk Utility?

Ran through all the pre-install steps fine but I can't install. Booting from the USB installer, it boots up fine and gets to the OS X installer's "Welcome" screen and then I have no keyboard or mouse so can't get any further. Tried both PS/2 and USB peripherals. Running on a Gigabyte GA-H55M-UD2H. Any ideas?

www.cheetha.com --> kext helper
Chameleon GUI --> The Chameleon I gave in the Links section has GUI...when Installing just select all the options
Just open Kext utility and enter your password .....It will do the work for you.......

Using the retail App Store version of Lion. I tried installing Extra Lion.pkg to the install media and it hangs on "writing package receipt" indefinitely - I ended up having to force quit it as I assumed it was finished with everything else, but could that be why?

That Lion pkg is the one that adds Extensions.mkext for keyboard and other important drivers.....try reinstalling it onto the installation media ....If it hangs again let me know

Never mind here are the extracted kexts:

Is there something I do wrong when I install kexts? I open Kext helper, drag them in, and click "Easy Install". When I reboot, I get the same thing as last time. Alot of text followed by "System uptime in nanoseconds:"

Edit: I can't access my windows installation to revert to my backup. "BOOTMGR missing, Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to reboot"
