have now run disk utility to repair permissions and it fixed quite a few of them.

unfortunately no change. it still hangs with either "nspace-handler-set-snapshot-time:..." or "nstat_lookup_entry failed: 2"

 

now I'll try a clean install instead.

 

Hi, I have the same "nstat_lookup_entry failed" in Verbose Mode, but BEFORE the Lion install starts, when first time have to use the prepaired usb key, apple logo, spinning Reel forever...

 

 

 

Stupid Question,

 

if I bought Lion OSX (23,99 Euro) can I download it again with my apple ID ?

When yes, how many times or it is unlimited ?

This is fun... I'm now on my fifth try to install Lion.

 

The first try was to update from Snow Leo. Never got it to boot and ended up formatting the partition and installing from scratch. This worked... until I restored from Time Machine and ended up with the same result as the first try to update.

Both my third and fourth try to install quit about half way trough with the message that it couldn't install and that I should try again.

 

Now fifth try and keeping my fingers crossed.

 

Edit:

Nope. Failed half way trough this time also...

Could be my USB-stick though... it has been acting weird before.

Will get a new one tomorrow and make a new stick for a sixth try.

Today I install first SL till 10.6.8,then download again Lion, and again Lion stick. I hope will be ok, but I did the Lion guide step by step till now also...

No Bluetooth Ghosts anymore: I took the optimized AppleBT kext (the 2nd one) of Mr. Andy Vandijck :

Andy VanDijck and now it's working.

 

deleted the broadcomusb kext, replaced it with that one: ... and all at 64 bit :wacko:

have now working bt-mouse (logitech m555b) and bt-keyboard (apple, older one, 3 batteries) without BT-ghosts and they are available at login!

 

I had bundled Andy's optimized Bluetooth kext in my Extra kexts while on 10.6.8.

Looks like Crazy juice had some issue turning the bluetooth On/Off. So he has switched back to BroadcomUSB270Injector.kext in his guide.

Hello:

 

I'm trying to upgrade my Asus 1201N from 10.6.8 to Lion.

 

I made the USB disk, and everything seems to be fine since I get the same nstat_lookup_entry problem that some of you described. There's a thread talking about this issue here:

 

http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/lofiversi...hp/t263249.html

 

About the +4Gb Ram, here is explained why it does not work:

http://forum.eeeuser.com/viewtopic.php?id=82918&p=2

The BIOS recognizes the extra ram, but seems that there's a firmware problem.

 

(sorry for the bad english)

 

Thanks

Hi, I installed again 10.6.8 SL, first cannot log in Apple Store, now Networkplist deleted, ok. But now it says I cannot install Lion 10.7 on this computer.

I dont want to install, I want to download again, what I have bought already.

 

How ?

 

Theres no Download button anymore, just install.

 

"This version of Mac OS X 10.7 cannot be installed on this computer."

Option-click on the name of the Lion app.

and please try to use google for basic things like this one :D

I used it, have read it, and Option-Click on the name of the App tried, but the message is the same.

In my situation with 10.6.8 Install some Component, Driver didnt updated, thats why I get the message "This version of Mac OS X 10.7 cannot be installed on this computer"

 

First with this 1201n downloaded Lion, there was no problem, but now, after 10.6.8 yes, I have problem with this.

 

And I have read abuot our (another) Error message(...lookup_entry_2 or sg else) also, I am not the only one who has this problem.

 

If a problem exist, it doesnt mean 100% that this person did sg wrong. It could be sg else.

 

So I look after this message, because Option-Click is not the solution.

 

Thanks

No need usb kb & mouse.

In terminal

cd /System/Library/CoreServices/Setup\ Assistant.app/Contents/

sudo nano Info.plist

 

delete this lines

<string>DeviceSection</string>

<string>KeyboardTypeSection</string>

 

Sava Ctrl+O & Exit then reboot

To turn off the BT is only for reducing powerconsumption, or?

And why is that option available but can't be changed (greyed out) in the BlueTooth-PrefPane?

click "Purchases" while keeping pressed the option key

Thanks, but doesnt help as I wrote.

When I click Install then comes the message, "This version of Mac OS X 10.7 cannot be installed on this computer"

 

There´s only 1 Button, Install. Not Redownload or sg. If I click, comes this message.

Thats what I wrote before.

I found this:

""distribution" file inside OSINSTALL.MPKG of Lion does a few checks before Lion decides if and how installation is possible:

 

CPU is native 64 bit and has at least 2 cores

 

2 x 1024MB of Ram minimal, else blocked install.

 

Mac Serial Numbers / mac Model IDs ( some are blocked, early mac minis for example )

 

If Mac has a DVD drive ( only then dvdplayer.app is installed )

 

If it is a Server on the software and/or on the hardware side ( offering Server tools and blocks upgrades for 10.4.11 server )

 

and some more.."

 

But how can it be, that before with 10.6.7 I did it, I downloaded it... About this mac says 1,6 dual core cpu, I have 4gb ram, but I tried, my serial number is not valid... it has to be changed.

Maybe that is the Solution.

 

EDIT, yes, this is the solution, [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] install and it can change your Serial Number like a Macbook Pro.

Then Lion OSX can be downloaded.

I'll now try for the sixth time to update to Lion from a recovered SL via Time Machine.

Same errors as the last few attempts, but I have now found a post that claims that installing Lion a second time to the same drive should fix this. Can't hurt to try...

 

I have also been suggested to remove one of my RAM-sticks and try with only 2GB of RAM.

Next thing to try tomorrow if the first experiment fails...

It was a chameleon problem. I repaired permissions with disk utility, then installed the 1203 using chameleon wizard. I did all three metods.

Now I'm having the issue that the installer says that Lion could not be installed in this machine

 

Thanks

Wow! I cannot believe it! I now have a working copy of Lion :)

The fix for all the errors I've been having during boot was simply fixed by installing Lion a second time over the first!

Sounds weird, but it works :)

Well, repeating the step 9, everything is fine and did a fresh install. Thanks a lot, nasseau and crazyjuice and to everyrone that made this possible :-)

 

Edit: Just enabled audio, network, trim and some few hacks. I miss the 64 bit kernel. I'm trying in com.apple.Boot.plist with:

 

<key>Kernel Flags</key>
<string>arch=x86_64 npci=0x2000</string>

 

From the Extra folder, but seems that doesn't work.

 

Lion looks really nice :)

 

Thanks a lot again.

if you're using chameleon 1203 you must edit org.chameleon.Boot.plist and not com.apple.Boot.plist

Done. Thanks a lot nasseau

 

Edit: I noticed that there's a warning at boot saying "hibernate image is too old". Does anybody have this issue? I have read that seems to be related to the DSDT

 

 

Thanks.

I cant believe it, I did it...

 

Chameleon 3 times 3 methods install, and 2gb ram with 2gb dsdt.aml, first lion install, 8 minutes left, KP, but the 2nd one was ok, maybe I did sg with the cables...

 

Thanks for you Crazy Juice and Nessaeu, thanks for you All.

 

 

EDIT: In details: I installed 3 times Chameleon, Boot0HFS, Boot0, Update, and not download, just from Directory, and I used 2GB only with the 2GB dsdt.aml, then it was high time :-) but the boot to Lion was ok, first install, I think I did sg with the extended HD cabe, 8 minutes left, Kernel Panic, I started again, and it was ok.

 

I think the Serialnumbers are not real (I checked it), and thats why comes the message: "10.7 cannot be installed on this computer" I changed it with "tonymac's [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] programm, system identification was like a 8,1 Macbook Pro, then it was ok also. Now I have again this not real Serial, Apple Store said when I wanted to download Lion, "10.7 cannot be installed..." Its funny, I already have...
