No , just about 1 minute, then the active-wheel is spinning, wait for further 2 minutes and you are in for first install.
But you have to take care from where you are booting! It's not possible to boot from 1201 and then choose the usbstick. You have to boot via usbstick - that's different. You also can change the bootdivice in bios by "F2" and the option "BOOT". Plz, try it

Thanks for the answer, but I booted so, f2, but only spinning reel.
I prepare again my stick, maybe sg went wrong.
Thanks

I do now again, but one thing, I use dual boot with win7 first partition.
But normally it cant be a problem when booting, and I want now first only osx.
Lets do it.
Thanks

If i skip step Step 12 and select my existing SL partition on install will it update my existing OS X install?

  • Maybe You installed the wrong version of cham by the wizard, are you sure that you installed 1203?
  • Step 9: Lion_OSInstall_GM.tar.bz2 !!! you have to replace both files on your stick! (I did it by 2 finder windows, opened parallel both folders till I were there, then replaced them). I think "cp -R Source_file Target_file" will do the same...

My files differ from yours!
no not really but the Lion Install differs -- b.t.w. you use a developer installation? maybe DP2 or DP3?

So, I downloaded from Apple Store, it is a normal version.
Just 2 questions, If I change the 2 Directory, System/Library and the other one, if I copy these 2 Directory, then in these Directories (original) only just 1-3 files, so if I change it with the Target Directory, I have to merge it, and only these files changing or complete, and then only these original files are ind the Target directory?
I hope I was clear...

For showing hidden Files I use Houdini.app, a simple Application, but the result is the same.

I deleted my complete HD, but the same result.

I made the Verbose Boot mode, here is 2 Fotos:

no you can't copy the directory you must only copy the files inside the good folders

OSInstall inside usb key /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/Install.framework/Frameworks/OSInstall.framework/Versions/A

OSInstall.mpkg inside usb key
/System/Installation/Packages

I think I did so...
Can you see maybe on the Fotos something strange? Why I cannot boot?
Just Apple Logo, and Spinning Reel.

Nevermind, I try it again :-)

No Bluetooth Ghosts anymore: I took the optimized AppleBT kext (the 2nd one) of Mr. Andy Vandijck :
Andy VanDijck and now it's working.

deleted the broadcomusb kext, replaced it with that one: Attached File  BroadcomAppleBluetooth.kext.zip   4.95KB   241 downloads --- and made an kextutil ... and all at 64 bit :(
have now working bt-mouse (logitech m555b) and bt-keyboard (apple, older one, 3 batteries) without BT-ghosts and they are available at login!

that are my /E/E's:

hi! first i want to thank a lot to nasseau and crazy juice for the effort

i made my usb key installer and it boots perfectly, but the installation doesn't recognize my hd, the only option hd being recognized in disk utilities is my usb hd, but not the internal hd. it has a partition with win 7 and it used to dual boot with snow leo without any problem

any ideas why the internal hd couldn't be recognized in the installer?

thanks

If you use 32-bit mode you can use sleep flawlessly.

Hi, I do something wrong with the Chameleon Installation. 1203 ver. ok, but which method must be used?
Boot0hfs or Boot0 or Update? If I choose NOT the right one, I have to copy again the boot file?

(I mean I have to delete the installed boot file and then try another option)
I had dual win7/snow leo on my hd, now only 1 partition with win7.

I appreciate any help

EDIT: I tried chameleon 914, first delete boot file, then 914 install, then apple logo, and immediately restart...
If I install chameleon 1203 with one of the options, just spinning reel forever...
which version of chameleon can be also good?

I can't get my Lion install to boot after the installation.
I have tried everything but it stalls by this message in verbose mode: "nstat_lookup_entry failed 2".
Anyone know what's wrong and how to fix this?
