Kakewalk is a simple method for installing Lion on a PC.
If you're happy with my work please consider donating :) Thanks a lot!

Looks great!

Just to confirm though, does this work with the AppStore version of Lion or just the Developer version?

Either way, you can expect a donation from me! :P

Either should work fine :dance_24: The application accepts .dmg files and Install Mac OS X Lion.app
Thanks for the support everyone!

Thanks.

However, when I tried to run it, after I input admin password, nothing happened thereafter...any suggestion?

Can this be used to make a DVD instead of a bootable usb drive? I'd prefer having a hard copy on dvd just in case I need to reinstall and i've already formatted my usb drive.

Thanks for the app! This will be my first attempt at installing Lion on my machine... Haven't had to mess with anything hackintosh since I got my machine running perfectly 2 years ago, so it's nice to see an easy app for jumping back in...

Couple of questions:

1) This is a vanilla install, right? Not like the old kalyway or iDeneb distros?
2) Does it work if you create a HD partition instead of USB stick?

No luck for me; when trying to boot off the USB stick I created, it never loads the bootloader... If I try to boot the kakewalk partition using the bootloader I have on my main drive (Chameleon R4 I think), it will reset my computer after loading all the kexts.

Mobo is a EX58UD4P, I have set my BIOS as the instructions say...

first of all, thank you for the app.

I'm lucky enough to have the compatible hardware to do this, however I'd like to understand how the app works.

Where do the kexs get installed to? The main kext folder or /extra? I'm worried about how future-proof the install is and how well it would cope with native Mac Os software updates. (My current manual/custom Snow-Leo setup has plowed through every single one of the SL updates without needing any extra work.)

Hey everybody,

was wondering if this app will work on non gigabyte boards? Has anybody tried it on an Asus P5B or P5Q motherboard? If so, would you mind sharing your info here.

Thanks Kakewalk for making such a ripper app, cheers mates, Plucka

mrjanek, Im having an issue where I cannot create the kakewalk 4 usb boot. Im getting the following error "Could not rename drive. Make sure you no other volumes named 'Mac OSX Base System' are mounted" The install basically fails at this point. I have tried repeating it again by re-formatting my usb stick first and changing the name to something simple such as lion or kakewalk.

Another user named MadNachos in your discussion forum on your website is also reporting the same issue.

Any advise? I can upload the log when I return home this evening.

Thanks. Doug

(p.s my system has been rock solid based on your earlier kakewalk install). Im curious how to you handle upgrades from a system running an older kakewalk install with an older chameleon ? Do you replace the boot loaded and keep the users dst files? or replace both?
