I found it on the net.

This is the file name

 

Chameleon v2.0-RC5 Lion.pkg

 

 

It was going well for about 10 seconds then hung at this.

 

I have the same trouble yesterday.Try in verbose mode : -v arch=x86_64 or you can edit your com.apple.Boot.plist on your usb key and replace i386 by arch=x86_64.

 

Sorry for my bad english.

I get exactly the same problem. I haven't figured out how to get passed it.

 

I got past this by adding IOATAFamily.kext to Extra. If your SL installation has any other ATA-related kexts in Extra, add them too.

I managed to install DP3 without using a USB Stick. Just used a small chunk of the HDD without installing Chameleon and it worked. I'm downloading DP4 and will see how it works. Thanks for the guide. :(

I have done all that. Where does the extra folder go and does it need refering to?

Is it likely my X1800XT Radeon will work with Snow Leopard kexts ?

Try putting LegacyAppleRTC.kext with Extra folder. Maybe it'd work

Does anyone have the same problem like me,

 

When I use Chemeleon RC5-r1003 in USB stick, i can proceed to installation. even though "PCI Configuration Begin" occured.

 

After than, I install Chemeleon RC5-r1003 into my Lion Partition. But I just stuck in "PCI Configuration Begin" and the machine just hanged there.

Same here. tried with different drives and every time i try to boot from a Lion restored drive, my bios doesn't even see it... pretty strange i guess...

Hey, I'm getting to the install screen but it freezes randomly during the install. Installing on a Vostro 1500. I followed the beginning instructions exactly. Do I need to add those kexts at the bottom into the extras folder possibly?
