First a few things hidden as SPOILER. You should read it if you see this the first time:

Spoiler


Warnings:
1. For WiFi you will have to change your WiFi card in the Laptop. Buy a AR9285 card for $15 and put it into your laptop or use an USB WiFi Dongle.

1. VOODOOHD Audio will cause a very loud feedback loop between your Mic and your Speakers. Don't install them! Search for custom kexts.

2. You will see an error message about nVidia ROM patch every time. Just ignore it.




GUIDE

1. Boot from DVD with iAtkos L2 (hit ESC at ASUS Logo and choose your DVD - hit enter)
2. At the BootLoader hit F8 and type: -v cpus=1 busratio=22
3. After booting on the Install screen choose your language and "Continue"
4. From the top menu bar choose "Utilities" then "Disk Utility"
5. Mark your partition and "Earese" as MAC OS Extended (Journaled)
6. Close "Disk Utility"
7. "Continue" and "Agree" to the iAtkos Terms of Use
8. Mark your MAC partition and click "Customize" on the left.
9. In the lists check AHCI SATA, USB, PS/2 (And AR9285 under WiFi if you changed the hardware). Pre checked things have to be checked of course!
10. Install

(Eventually you have to use rBoot-LE to restart the system at the first time)

11. Fill out the Apple stuff after your likings
12. Being on the desktop download "##### Lion Edition" and "rBoot-LE" from Tonymacx86.com
12a. For security reasons make a bootable USB with rBoot-LE
Spoiler

13. From rBoot-LE.iso extract the "EXTRA" folder and copy its content into the "EXTRA" folder on your MAC partition
Spoiler

15. Additionally you can edit the BootLoader in "System Preferences" and set "arch" to x86_64, CPU to 1, and the BusRatio to 22.
16. Restart

Now your LION should reboot automatically without any problems.

For Audio, Ethernet and other stuff use this ZIP: http://www.osx86.net...do=file&id=2725

If you have problems, you can discuss them here and I will refine the GUIDE after reinstalling my system.
As I said, I messed with it a week and some steps may need another order or they need a restart in-between.

----

In case of emergency now you can boot your partition with the USB instead of a DVD.

You won't see a cursor or anything.
Just start typing.
You will see very small letters at the bottom(?) of the screen.
It is easy to overlook.

If you have windows on it, you need additional steps to make it dual boot.
Read my other topic about dual boot.
You can do the same to make a dual boot system described in that topic.

Hi,

I tried this guide http://www.insanelym...11#entry1862311

Everything works fine.

Now I want it to boot normally without robot LE CD. So for this from your guide I tried steps 12-14 and after that my USB & SOUND was dead and as soon as i tried easy beast and did restart I had kernel panic.

Please advice.

Many thanks.

I can't help you, if you use another tutorial.
I don't know, how your system will be set up with that tutorial. It seems pretty different from mine.

If you follow my tutorial, you will be good to go.
