I have a perfect working Snow Lepoard on my hack but would like to upgrade to Lion. I've tried a lot of options, but everytime when I boot i get kernel panic (see attached picture).

So what is the current situation:

1. Have a bootable USB stick with Lion and Chameleon 2.1 (checked on real MAC and is booting OK)
2. smbios.plist (Mac 3,1 optimized)
3. com.apple.Boot.plist
<key>Boot Banner</key>
<key>Kernel Flags</key>
4. Have an optimized DSDT (only fakesmc.kext is needed on SL)
5. Exrta/Extensions (FakeSMC, tried also (IOAHCIBlockStorageInjector, AHCIPortInjector))
6. Tried with kernel flags (acpi=off, PCIRootID=0 and 1, no kernel cache, no graphics enabler)
7. Have unplugged CD/DVD and 1TB disk
8. Checked BIOS settings

I really have no more ideas what to try.

Any ideas what could be worng?

Restored Lion on the USB stick again and now it goes forward but now I'm stuck on the white screen after apple logo.

Tried PCIRootUID, npci, GraphicsEnabler.

When I do -f or -s I get then th same kernel panic as in first post.

Are there normally problems with USB stick when restoring images onto them? I suspect that this could be the same issue.

-f -v -x PCIRootUID=1 UseKernelCache=No GraphicsEnabler=No npci=0x2000 cpus=1

Use only FakeSMC.kext and NULLCPUPowerManegemente.kext in S/L/E of your USBInstaller, in the root USBInstaller folder Extra with smbios.plist/org.chameleon.boot.plist/DSDT.aml, make a new USBInstaller with MAP/MBR Format/HFS+ , RESTORE with Disk Utility .dmg LION, InstallChameleon, make a Extra Folder, and try again, in your photo I see what the problem is Installer corrupt or you have made this wrong, serch for a guide how to mke a USBInstaller, take a look here.

Thanks for the help. In the end it was a corrupt installer.
