Hi there! i have already a dual boot with SL 10.6.8 and windows 7 and would really love to be able to just update the SL to lion. Correct me if am wrong but of what i have read so far in your guide this should be possible with it, but i am having a little problem after following every step to create the installation media, i boot up the drive all right but on the main screen where u are to choose your language, it shut down my computer after selecting my language. Can you please help me with this? thanks you in advance.

No you cannot because it is on MBR partition that you installed......I'm working for patching the combo updates.......right now on 10.7.2.....I'll post here how to update.....


Currently my Snow Leopard/Windows 7 install is on hybrid GPU/GUID for SL & MBR for WIN7. They are on different HDDs. I built SL on a GPU/GUID HDD which was the only HDD connected to my PC. I then disconnected that SL on HDD. I then connected a second HDD to my PC and installed Win 7 normally [MBR].

I have been able to always perform SL updates using downloads from Apple[some combo updates] I have been able ALSO to perform some updates answering OK to SL's notification.

Are you saying, that if I put Lion on a HDD formated as MBR, I NO LONGER will be able to download Lion updates and use them? That I only can use those Lion 7.x.x updates if LION is on GUID/GPU?

I am confused because so many folks have said there are no problems associated with installing LION on MBR [clean install not SL upgrade to Lion].

Hi, I tried this method to each and every word. However, I am not able to boot from the usbPosted Image.On F12, if I select usb drive to boot from, it gives "No operating system found" error. If I try with my existing leopard installation by pressing F8 at boot up and choosing the usb drive it gives

Loaded HFS+file: [System/Library/CoreServices/SystemVersion.plist]
Loading Darwin 10.7
Loading Kernel custom
Can't find custom

Please help

edit:
I don't know why the booting doesn't work when using my 8 gb pen drive. I was able to boot when I created the installation media on my external hard disk. However I am now stuck on "Still waiting for root device" error during installation.

I found out why my 8gb pen drive wasn't working. Its because it formatted as GUID partitioning scheme. I formatted it to MBR and now its working.

I am stuck at the "Still waiting for the root device" issue. I have set AHCI mode in my bios.

I can confirm Hackintosh2000's statement above - even though the paths are same, the file names from Nawcom's patch and actual Lion dmg are different. Trying to boot by replacing the files (after renaming the files which have different names to those of existing files) causes the boot process to crash halfway and the system resets with no warnings.

Even tried myHack; that too does not work.

Hey guys,

I followed this guide and stuck at installation step 9.

Just simply stop at Still waiting for boot device.

I have tried to unplug every HDD (except the 1 i wish to install Lion), DVDrom, tried every sata port configured my bios setting accordingly but still no luck at all.

Also tried -v -s -f -x and whatever combination i can find for my motherboard everytime just stuck at the same place.


Processor - Intel® Core™2 Duo CPU E7400 @ 2.80GHz, 2800 Mhz, 2 Core(s), 2 Logical Processor(s)

Motherboard - System Model G31M-ES2L
Graphic Card - NVIDIA GeForce GT 240

RAM - 2GB X 2 Kingston 800

Any suggestion
