hands down the quickest, easiest installation I've ever done. Every thing worked 1st try. I used -x -f -v as my extra bootflags along with what was already in my org.chameleon.boot.plist.

My super fast easy method requires you don't install to MBR and that you have a hard drive with chameleon on it already that is new enough revision to boot ML. first, make empty partition available for installing onto on guid only drive, hfs+ formatted. RT click install ML app, mount InstallESD.dmg, navigate to basesystem.dmg and mount it. restore basesystem.dmg from ML install app(to usb or another small partition) via diskutility. Eject basesystem.dmg so u dont get it mixed up with new restored one as it will have same name. Fire up ye mighty terminal and go to bash shell with:sudo -s
then copy packages folder from installESD.dmg to System/Installation/ on your newly restored usb like this:cp -R (drag packages folder here) (drag installation folder from usb here)

give it a few minutes to finish

then do the same copy technique, but this time for mach_kernel from InstallESD.dmg to / of new usb:cp -R (drag mach kernel here) (drag entire usb installer volume here)

and done with terminal-yay

create /Extra folder on usb and only put in your smbios and org.chameleon.boot.plist, leave your DSDT out

use kext wizard to install fakesmc and nullcpupowermanagement to s/l/e on your usb drive, (include SL version of appleacpiplatform.kext if using asus x58 mobo), then use kext wiz repair and rebuild cache options

reboot as normal, do not change boot drive in bios. At your normal chameleon prompt, choose instead to boot to your new installer (OSX Base system) and use boot flags -x -f -v add any other bootflags you normally use that are not already in your org.chamleon.boot.plist

install DP4 and reboot back to your old OSX. From there use kext wiz again to install fakesmc to your new DP4 and any other kexts you know are required to boot(asus x58 use appleacpiplatform old version again) and copy /Extra folder from installer to your completed installation. I still didn't put my DSDT in it yet

reboot, and this time from chameleon prompt choose new OSX DP4 and have fun. Should always use -v to boot until your install is rock solid (with dev preview just always use it) Install chameleon and DSDT if you plan on deleting or overwriting your previous installation, otherwise not really needed.

fyi, Possible DSDT loading may be different if you install to a disk that does not already have a bootable partition with chameleon and DSDT from before, I have DP3 and DP4 on same drive but separate partitions. DSDT gets loaded from DP3 before I even get to the chameleon menu. After some fiddling, will eventually replace DP3 with DP4 and delete the additional partition, at which time I will need to copy over DSDT and reinstall chameleon

other hardware that usually requires various patches and workarounds to get running, will probably still require them again, its your stuff so you should know how to use it :) Final note, I had to use DP3 version of IONetworkingFamily.kext for ethernet to work, even when I installed the same plugin that I always have used, the network.kext would not load, but the DP3 one works great. Had to do same thing on DP3 upd2 for my wifi rolling it back to DP3 upd1,and it's apple oem, but not this time. That's the kinda stuff that comes with the territory. Weird tho, next time it will be bluetooth :)

Installation was a breeze on top previously installed "12a206j" aka upgrade. Restore patched AppleHDA to get sound working.

That was too easy. I use myhack. I had it running in 30 min. the only issues I had was my sound and my network card but I got that working but installing voodoohda and AtherosL1Ethernet.

White or grey? If you have a second monitor that's not turned on, check it. That one got me for a while back when the first Lion DP came out last year :)

Giving it a go now via software update I anticipate broken sound which is what happened last time.

Thanks! But I don't know what you mean by 'to see if you have dev id'

and I have no atiradeonx3000 in my installer kexts, only x2000.

Just installed it on my Hackintosh. Installing was a breeze compared to the pain that was DP3, and I finally got my DVD drive working again.
