does anyone knows how to do this manually?

 

I would like to know the tech* behind this most nicely done installer.

 

It seems to work like x Move by Tony(something?? i will Google it later.)

 

X Move & this installer knows where Lion.app store it's install files.

 

Can someone with the tech know-how do a detail install of lion.app for us, with what the installer is doing and where it's putting the files, any modification been done, etc...

 

 

Thank you.

Please make sure that InstallESD.dmg in /Mac OS X Install DATA folder, in your root macintosh HD, if you are unsure, just install "Install OS X Lion.app" and reboot, run the installer

@regae

 

Thanks for the app but you can not still the files smbios.plist, ElliottForceLegacyRTC.kext RealtekRTL81xx.kext and add the install because some files do not go without it.

 

It should be this smbios.plist.

 

Danke für das App aber kannst du nicht noch die Dateien smbios.plist, ElliottForceLegacyRTC.kext und RealtekRTL81xx.kext noch hinzufügen da bei einigen das installieren ohne diese Dateien nicht geht.

 

Es sollte diese smbios.plist sein.

Does not work for me, tried twice. The DVD does not boot. However the partition where the installer extracts the LION files is bootable and I installed from that and working like a charm.

what happens if you install the installer on your normal partition.. is there any chance of it erasing data? - I think i done that by accident and screwed up :/

Agreed. I'm going to be grabbing this so I can banish Snow from my dual-partition all-OS X HDD after I migrate to Sandy Bridge.

 

Why? Simple enough - there are no applications or hardware that run only in Snow (either currently or planned to be added post-migration) and it saves from having to reinstall *all*.

 

Side benefit - currently I have three hard drives (one used entirely for install images/utilities - currently, it's an ex-Dell 40 GB PATA) and I can move it to offline storage (and out of my case) either before or after conversion to SATA.

 

Speaking of which - can Disk Utility (in either Snow or Lion) copy an entire drive (partitions and all) to another drive? I'd like migrating that drive to be as pain-free as is feasible. I know DU works with images and partitions - I just don't know if it's capable of tackling an entire drive. (The destination will likely be larger than the source, as 40 GB *SATA* HDDs aren't exactly common.)
