Hi, Thx so much for the guide, I have Optiplex 780 Desktop

I`m not sure i understand "C " under 1. Create Bootable USB pen with OSX Lion: i need 2 different bootloaders pci efi and chameleon on usb drive?

Do I need "NullCPUPowerMagamenent.kext" because under snow I didn`t need it at all, is it different on Lion?

Thx!

Hi Lukin,
You can install directly chameleon. If usb pen doesn't boot then try, as i have done, to
Install first pc-efi and then chameleon.

For NullCpuPowerManagement.kext you can try without it.
For sound card i can make some tests ( i have just used rear output )
I will post my results

TESTED: Rear and Front Speaker Work OK :P
Rear and Front Mic Work OK :P

Doesn't work for me i get "Mac OS X cannot be installed on this computer". Then it gives me the option to restore from back up or restart.

Also I have MacPro3,1 in my smbios.plist but system information shows it as an iMac. Seems my smbios.plist is being ignored by one of the packages.

Issue resolved. I repaired permissions using Disk Utility, and installed with no further issues.

I also installed an NVidia GeForce 8400GS Low Profile Video card and I have full resolution WITH QE/CI.

There are a lot of solutions for the error "can't install on this machine." you can search online.

They only one that worked for me was repairing permissions on the USB itself, using the mac you created the usb on.
