How to use ?

Method #1 : if you download the OS X Lion as an Application (.app)
1. Install Install OS X Lion.app to Macintosh HD, and reboot normally to your Hackintosh
2. Make a new Partition, size : minimum 4.7GB
3. Download Mac OS X Lion Installer DVD Maker.pkg and install to new Partition,
4. Burn InstallerDVDLion-regae.iso in your Desktop to a Blank DVD5

Method #2 : if you download the OS X Lion as an Image (.dmg)
1. Make a directory in your root HD, name : Mac OS X Install DATA, and put InstallESD.dmg in this folder, so it should be located : "/Mac OS X Install DATA/InstallESD.dmg"
2. Make a new Partition, size : minimum 4.7GB
3. Download Mac OS X Lion Installer DVD Maker.pkg and install to new Partition,
4. Burn InstallerDVDLion-regae.iso in your Desktop to a Blank DVD5

How to Install Lion with this DVD Installer
1. Set the first boot to DVD Drive in your BIOS.
2. Chameleon will appear, and select (boot) to Mac OS X Lion (regae)
3. Install Lion to your HD, thats it,

Advantage :

does anyone knows how to do this manually?

I would like to know the tech* behind this most nicely done installer.

It seems to work like x Move by Tony(something?? i will Google it later.)

X Move & this installer knows where Lion.app store it's install files.

Can someone with the tech know-how do a detail install of lion.app for us, with what the installer is doing and where it's putting the files, any modification been done, etc...


Thank you.

Please make sure that InstallESD.dmg in /Mac OS X Install DATA folder, in your root macintosh HD, if you are unsure, just install "Install OS X Lion.app" and reboot, run the installer

Read the description or explaination first!
