  1. I installed under VMware Workstation on Windows, using a Compact Flash drive containing the Lion installer files. Boot from the USB installer. Once the installer opens you will not see your virtual disk until you open Disk utility from the menu at the top of the screen. In Disk utility you will create at least one bootable GUID partition on your disk. Apply the Disk utility changes, quit Disk utility, and now you should see your virtual disk as an installation target under the Lion installer.
  2. "I'm seeing a lot of references ot QE/CI, but I don't know what it means. Can someone please explain or provide a link to an explanation?" http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=24431 - Link to explanation of QE/CI. Also, as for the 10.5.3 combo update, I now have to run "update -v" on every reboot. Also, despite the fact that I followed the instructions to the letter, my system is still running kernel 9.2.0. Any ideas?
  3. How, exactly, step by step, did you do what you describe above? I followed all of the steps of the original post to the letter, and my system is still running the 9.2 kernel. Also, I have searched high and low for a free utility (command line or GUI, I don't care) that can extract .pkg files. No luck thus far. Lastly, I have to run the update -v after every reboot, not just the first one.I have an Asus P5B-VM motherboard. Also, what in the world is QE/CI? I see it mentioned a lot in this thread, and in the two months or so that I've been playing around with the Hackintosh I've never seen this mentioned so often. By the way, I assume I'm running the 9.2 kernel because when I open Terminal and run uname -r I get: 9.2.0 and when I run uname -a I get Darwin tfruths-mac-pro.local 9.2.0 Darwin Kernel Version 9.2.0: Sun Mar 2 00:11:08 SCT 2008; made by ToH:xnu-1228/BUILD/obj/RELEASE_I386 i386 What I find interesting is in the System Profiler I see the following under Software -> Frameworks -> Kernel Version: 9.3.0 Last Modified: 5/29/08 12:29 PM Location: /System/Library/Frameworks/Kernel.framework Private: No
