Hi all. I am very new to the Hackintosh community. I figure my laptop had great specs to run OS X on it. So I started with attempting to get Snow Leopard to run but ran into issues trying to get to 10.6.8. I saw a forum that said it was best to just attempt a clean install of Lion 10.7 so that is what I have been trying to do the last few days reading countless forums for assistance. This is where I am:

Computer specs:

2nd generation Intel Core i3-2330M Processor( 2.20GHz 1333MHz 3MB)

AMD Radeon HD 6470M 1GB
4.0GB PC3-10600 DDR3 SDRAM 1333 MHz
Emerald Lake Fab1 Motherboard (H65 Chipset) *BIOS is up-to-date
AHCI set in my BIOS options

I followed this to make the USB bootable Lion install http://themacmob.com...lion-usb-drive/

The bootloader that I installed is not booting the USB automatically, so since the iAtkos DVD uses Chameleon 2.1svn-r1650 I figured I could use it to boot. It looked promising but this is where I am hung up;

Boot with no flags flashes a message of "Unsupported Card!"

Boot flag -v shows "Device in Slot--1"

Boot flag -x -v shows "DSMOS has arrived"
(Pics attached)

I have tried many other flags but at this point I would really like some assistance.
I have looked into starting to edit my DSDT file but need help since I'm so new to this.

Pointers please!!

Could you explain that one please, what does it do other than confuse the hell out of Chameleon?
I've never seen =-1 anywhere, where did you hear about it?

so neither of those flags worked..and when I boot with -x -v and wait a while all I got was "transcript offline - buffer pool allocate [181000] failed"
