Don't working for me. I'm testing on a Virtual Machine (VirtualBox) and an error occours when select the language.
The message is something like this:
"Mac OS X can't be installed on this computer"
"This version of Mac OS X 10.7 can't be installed on this computer.

If you want restore your system using a Time Machine backup, press "Restore Using backup"

Help me please.

**EDIT**

Using HackBoot the installation started. Waiting for the result.

@Regae, Thanks for the DVD installer. I managed to burn the ISO successfully. Unfortunately, I got stuck at PCI begins configuration during installation. I could not find solution to overcome the problem.
Any idea or suggestion to help me overcome PCI begins configuration hurdle?

Kernel Panic while booting DVD Lion 10.7.2 Apple Store (method #2 worked fine for iso creation) on

ACPI_SMC_PlatformPLugin (AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement)

or more specific driver ApplePolicyControl (3.0.16)

Optiplex 330 with Intel® Core™2 Duo Processor E6400

sebus

edit:
Redoing the iso (removing offending ApplePolicyControl.kext) does NOT KP, but "Still waiting for root device"

regae, would you care to supply the script only for making the iso?

What if you have Windows 7 and want to install to another partition?

Hey, this is my first post here, I promiss to introduce myself in the other post ASAP, but I just need my computer running first, I did exactly the same thing as Jason, and now my MBP won't boot. Just the apple logo and that spinning {censored}... :/ Command-R doesn't even work. Anyone care to share how I can fix it. :/

My other problem, once Lion was running on my Hackintosh, I installed that ######## thingy, and after reboot, my computer can boot neither Lion nor Win7 :/ Nothing boots up. Think I killed the bootloader, anyone knows how to fix this?

Thx in advance :)

Hi Ragae,


thanks for the nice application and tutorial. I was straight forward to follow and create the Lion Disc. I did it on my pc where I have 2 partitions one with lIon and one blank to reinstall lion and use it as test.
Well, when I have tried to install lion using the disk I will reboot with the disk insdide, it takes ages to boot but when you want to proceed to the installation it says:
"Lion cannot be installed in this computer" and it promts for doing a restore from time manchine. Also the second option is not working and you can only restart the computer.

Do you know what am I getting wrong?

Thanks

Ok, so while waiting foe my other osx installers to finish downloading, i tried running it on vm. All is well, vm ran fine and was able to install lion (got the .app) version and its able to boot too on vm. Problem comes when i try to run the dvd installer.pkg it fails to make the iso.

Hi,

Fantastic installer, but for me fails in one important thing, it doesn't boot without the cd. Is there a step that I missed or do I have to install the bootloader manually?

Thanks for the great work

fagosu, I think Chameleon should be automatically installed. But still, I'm pretty sure that automatically installing it will fix your issue.

Tried to make a dvd using this package. It failed with no message. I used the first method with .app. Is there a place to look for the error messages for the failure? I have a Lion installed and burning a dvd.
