hello, I've just read but my english is bad. Maybe my post is one of the wrong kind of post? =) I'm sorry

If you really want to install lion on your laptop, and the dmg is an InstallESD.dmg (although it sounds like a distro, which is fine but you'll have some problems), we might be able to help.
Could you please post the laptop specs here?
P.S. Your post isn't entirely wrong, just a bit confusing (but we won't fully chastise you for that), but word of advice: Before posting on ANY forum, please read the rules, it helps mods and admins out a lot... You'll also get more help here than you will at tony's site as well

grafich: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 4500M on chipset GL40
RAM 3 gb ddr3 800mhz
ethernet: Broadcom NetLink GB Ethernet (10/100/1000MB)
wifi: Broadcom 802.11 b/g wireless LAN
If I open dmg, I will find file InstallESD.dmg (14,6 mb) and some directory, so I think that It's the right file =)

thank you spakk!
I've just seen some video on YouTube, but a lot of them don't say how do it.
Yesterday I installed Mavericks, all was right, but for my graphic card there isn't qe/ci.
So I try to install Lion. Now, looking for Myhack (thanks to You ) I find hardware requirement for Lion and I read that intel HD4000 (I've intel 4500M) is not supported.
So, I ask: is my graphic card compatible with Lion? Some people on YouTube posted Lenovo G550 running Lion, without problems but also without instruction =(
As soon as possible I try to install Lion with Myhack and report to you the result

Thank you fantomas1, sorry for my delay. Yesterday I installed several time iAktos L2, but without audio and video. Now I try to install the others audio driver (with Mavericks and the same driver, audio goes right) but for graphic card I followed the guide that fantomas1 have posted whitout a positive result. On YouTube monitor is black, I can't see any video on it and also I can't change resolution of the laptop monitor.
What do you think about? =)
Ok for audio driver, I've problems only with GMA 4500M
Looking into the forum I have found this guide, posted by mosman. http://www.insanelym...0m#entry1636505
I don't know what I could do on the point n. 4 ("Restart Fix=Yes, arch=i386") what is this?
Posted 27 January 2014 - 11:34 PM
RestartFix and arch are bootflags for Chameleon bootloader (that piece of software emulating EFI). RestartFix will patch restart and shutdown capablity while "arch=i386" tells OSX to start in 32-bit-mode. You have to put these boot flags in the "kernel flag"-section of com.apple.boot.plist (or type them at every single boot). You can use TextEdit (or any other text editor) to patch com.apple.boot.plist, but I recommend Chameleon Wizard which will give a better overview of bootflags, fix etc.

Restartfix is enabled by default, no need to specify it - unless you want to disable it.
Good to know - I'm a bit old fashioned and enabled it manually (less typing next installion )

thanks! Using chameleon wizard I flag GUI, time out 5, kernel (mach_kernel), 32bit-i386, restartFix, graphic enabler. Now, on system preferences my graphic card is 512 Mb, before It was only 64 Mb. But resolution is bad: for example, I don't read name of files, menu, directory ecc and I can't see youtube video
