What you will need:
1 - Working Mac OS X (may be another PC or Mac)
2 - USB drive (USB stick)
3 - Lion DMG
Make a USB stick according to the procedures here :
01 - Open Disk Utility, select the USB drive partition and click on the Erase tab. Select Mac Os Extended (Journaled) and click on the Erase button.
02 - Mount InstallESD.dmg (*InstallESD.dmg Lion GM --> "Install Mac OS X Lion.app/Contents/SharedSupport".)
03 - Open Terminal and run the command:
open /Volumes/Mac\ OS\ X\ Install\ ESD/BaseSystem.dmg04 - Now click on the Restore tab, drag Mac OS X Base System to Source and the USB drive partition to Destination, then click on the Restore button. This operation takes several minutes.
The partition will have its name changed automatically to Mac OS X Base System after the restoration.
05 - After the restoration, open the restored partition, navigate to System/Installation, delete the Packages link and create a folder with the same name, Packages.
06 - Open Terminal and run the command:
open /Volumes/Mac\ OS\ X\ Install\ ESD/Packages07 - Copy the files to the Packages folder created previously.
08 - Run the installers "Extra_Lion_DP4.pkg" and "Chameleon_2.0_RC5_r1083.pkg". Remember to click on Change Install Location... and select the USB drive as destination, or they will be installed on the running system.
09 - With the installer USB ready, boot it and install Lion to an HD partition with options -v cpus=1 (press space bar)
10 - Create a partition with the utility disc then launch the installation
11 - After the installation, boot the USB drive again, but in Chameleon menu choose to boot the HD with options -v cpus=1
The system is running, but it doesn't boot without the USB stick, then we have to install the bootloader (Chameleon), the essential kexts and the DSDT
12 - Install Extra_Lion_DP4.pkg, Extra_Folder.pkg and Chameleon_2.0_RC5_r1083.pkg
13 - Install the kexts with Kext Utility (2.5.0b2) : VoodooHDA (2.7.2) - VoodooBattery - VoodooTSCSync - VoodooSDHC
14 - Put the files com.apple.Boot.plist, smbios.plist and dsdt.aml in /Extra folder
15 - Reboot and enjoy !!!
