Please don't try Hazard, or any other distro, unless you absolutely have to. Use retail (the original Snow Leopard DVD from Apple) whenever possible.

I don't have experience with graphics cards, but I'm pretty sure that the HD 2000 will not have full acceleration (QE/CI). I don't know, though, so research that.

Use Nawcom's ModCD instead of i-boot. Join Kexts.com and download it from here: http://www.osx86.net...odcd_0.3.2.html

The HD 2000 has no support. You will get VESA graphics out of it - no resolution change, no acceleration. It will work for now, but you will want a better card eventually.

The way Lion gets installed is not a matter of upgrading Snow Leopard. You use any working Mac installation to build a Lion installer and then install that to your hard drive. I always recommend keeping two installations of OSX anyway. If you install one and it has problems, you can always boot the other to work on the first.

Did you play around with your BIOS? Under the Peripherals -- Sata Mode set to AHCI. Then try Nawcom's ModCD again.

During initial boot of the DVD, it will ask if you want to hit F8. Press F8 and type -v followed by <Enter>. This will provide a text interface where you can read error messages.
