I mounted the InstallESD.dmg, but I see no BaseSystem.dmg, unless it is a hidden file.

Use the terminal with
Open /Volume/MacOS/BaseSystem.dmg
Or use onyx

( it's not exactly this address but you can found it in the lion's section)

It is a hidden file, yes. You need to find yourself instructions on the web for how to install Lion. The only difference is the boot loader, found on page 2 of this thread.

Edit: I'm gonna peek in the system files and look for possible Ivy Bridge support. Will be nice to know what Apple has planned coming up :)

Thanks! It was hidden. So now I restore this to the drive and see if it will boot.

PS: I notice there was a file in the InsallBSD.dmg that said "Supported Installs" or something like that. Do you think if someone added the board ID and model number of the macbook core 2 duo it could be loaded onto those? Or are the graphics really that bad that it wouldn't work?

Hello!

I'm using a laptop with the Intel X3100 graphics card. I've done installation using the 1.Restore BaseSystem.dmg/2.Copy Packages/3.Copy extensions/4.Reboot to install method. The installation was complete. And I've changed the string 10.8 to 10.7 in those two files1. But after rebooting, the system hangs. And the upper-most part of the screen is the menu bar(not transparent) while the rest is just a white screen.

In the /var/log/system.log file, I found this error:

[/SourceCache/loginwindow/loginwindow-1432/Login.m:1784] Failed to launch /System/Library/CoreServices/Setup Assistant.app/Contents/MacOS/Setup Assistant (error -10825)

Any ideas?


1. The two files are:
/System/Library/CoreServices/Setup Assistant.app/Contents/Info.plist
/System/Library/CoreServices/SystemVersion.plist

I don't know what it is, but my GTX590 OpenGL performance is really bad in cinebench. I'll test some other opengl stuff soon.

We all seem to have the same issue. Is it the apple logo you guys are seeing with a menu bar with only an apple logo? Also have either of you found a workaround?

For some reason, I can't get the computer to be verified. I've checked my smbios.plist and added pciroot=1 as well as ethernet=buitlin. I'm wondering if it has to do something with the modified chameleon. For those using clover, how do you get past a boot0 error?

Install went smooth as silk on my Dell XPS Studio 9000 machine.

Only Problem I've noticed so far is my Atheros Wireless DOES NOT work as it did in OS X 10.7.2. Any thoughts on that (like adding a device ID to a plist or something)?

I fixed my Atheros Wireless problem by googling the fix for 10.7.3. I've attached the kext for anyone else having this problem.

If we need speedstepper for 10.7. do we need it for this? And since it isn't out, I guess we would need nullcpu?

So I just want to be sure.

Will this cover it?


b. find InstallESD.dmg -> "Install Mac Os X Lion.app/Contents/ShareSupport"
Open and mount InstallESD.dmg
Show HiddenFiles -> here http://gotoes.org/sa...denFilesMacOSX/
Find BaseSystem.dmg inside InstallESD.dmg
Mount BaseSystem.dmg
c. Using Disk utility create an new immage.dmg DVD 4,6 Gb read and write , rename like Lion.dmg
d. Using Disk utility restore BaseSystem.dmg on new image Lion.dmg
e. mount Lion.dmg and rename volume like OSX LION
Delete packages link inside /System/installation
Copy Packages folder from InstallESD.dmg to Lion.dmg inside /System/Installation/ folder
f. Copy needed Kexts on Lion.dmg inside /System/Library/Extentions
*fakesmc.kext
* nullCPUPowermanagenent.kext


Or anything else we need to do?

edit- do we need the kernel? and then that would be it?

1. Install Path Finder (this is an enhanced Finder App http://www.cocoatech.com/ )

2. Double click the MLion dmg file to mount it

3. Enable invisible files to be shown, in Path Finder R. click-Show View Options-check Show Invisibles

4. Navigate to the mounted MLion dmg and drag BaseSystem.dmg to Documents Folder

5. Now in Path Finder Navigate to BaseSystem.dmg in Documents and R. click, uncheck Invisible so the item will not have an invisible flag!

6. In Disk Utility select your hard drive from the left, click on the Restore Tab and for the Source you will choose the BaseSystem.dmg in Documents (must not be invisible). Drag your new MLion Install partition from the list on the left into the Destination Slot (make sure Erase Destination & Replace is checked). Then Restore

7. Once the dmg has been restored, navigate to System/Installation/ in your new MLion Install partition (which should now be Mac OS X Base System) and delete the Packages Alias

8. Copy Packages Folder from the MLion Image to your new Mac OS X Base System Partition to /System/Installation using Path Finder … must have invisible flag (!)
- also copy “mach_kernel” from the Lion Image to the root of Mac OS X Base System Partition … must have invisible flag also (to make files invisible, in Path Finder, R. click on them and choose Get Info, check Invisible)


9. Reboot and boot in MLion Install partition (after installing those 2 kexts)

10. The end.
