holy {censored} i have so much more to learn.....

{censored} me I've tried every which way to get it to install. I actually got it to install once, but I forgot what method I used because I tried booting into it and couldn't get it, so by that time I'd forgotten what I'd done.

So I'm going to go back to the very first vanilla install and do that step by step.
Then I need to remove the ati6xxx kext from the installer drive.
Then I need to reboot and install.
Then I need to boot back into Lion, and install the kext on ML via the kext wizard.

Do I have that right?

There's always more to learn! You pretty much got it right there, would need to use Pacfist to extract the kexts if your installing them to a separate partition. If your following a guide on creating the installer, read this first com.apple.pkg.SIUResources not found , see post #7. I haven't got around to putting together a pkg cause I get side tracked easily :)

When you remove the kext make sure you keep a backup of it somewhere to make it easier to re-install. Also if the installer won't boot after you've removed it type -x -v -f at the boot loader screen and try again
