Glad to help and that you found the guide detailed enough in terms of what to do step by step.......
It would be very helpful for me in keeping Part A. up to date, if you could please let me know what works or does not work for you when you attempt to purchase and download Lion from the App Store.....
It would also be good to see your system details in your signature......I am assuming you have an nForce chipset + Intel CPU MOBO......?
You're right. Should have thought it myself.
First my config.
Asus P5N e SLI Mobo with Core 2 Duo E2220, 6 gb corsair memory
Bios : 1406 with Nforce 650
Gainward Nvidia9500 GT 1 GB
3 IDE HDD + 2 SATA
pionneer DVD RW on IDE
Edited DSDT file to avoid the CMOS reset problem (attached)
Scanner Epson V600 photo
Printer Brother hl 1030 (using the hl1460 driver) with a network adapter Axis Office Basic
System OK: No crash after 4 days (pretty intensive use)
Memory: SL 10.6.7 was only working with 2 x 1GB of memory. Lion is working fine with 6 Gb (2 x 1 Gb + 2 x 2 Gb)
Graphics : 1920x1200x32 Enabled through Chameleon and org.chameleon.boot.plist (attached)
(27' Hanns-G monitor on HDMI) (translucent menu bar)
Network: fully functional on MOBO
Sound: working with VoodooHDA 0.2.62. Sound level is correct (was low on SL). Input level from MIC and Line In are correct.
Scanner : functional
Netwrok printer: functional
Belkin BT dongle F8T017 functional OOB
Shutdown: functional (I had to use an old EvoReboot to make it work)
All the softwares I have installed so far are working. (Aperture, Office 2008, Photoshop Elements 9, Ilife 11)
Wifi : no wifi card as my house is wired in every room.
What's not working:
Sleep : was not working either on SL. Not a major issue.
Restart: was working on SL but not on Lion. A bit more a concern but that's life. Unless you have a solution.
I hope this is exhaustive enough.
Thanks again for sharing and your great work.
BTW, How can I buy Lion on Appstore as I am told it's already installed? Do I have to start install again from SL?
I have used you're USB stick method.
