Use a retail version of snow leopard + a boot disk to get snow leopard installed.

Then you can add kexts, dsdt and boot loader to perfect the install.

You can then use this SL installation to create the Lion install media, partition your hard drive and then install Lion.

If you so wish you can then delete the SL partition once Lion works.


OR if you have access to a mac/hack you can use that to create the Lion install media and install Lion straight to your laptop.


Either way, don't use a distro, they are hard to support as most people here seem to use a retail install method, myself included.


You will have trouble getting your graphics card to work properly under snow leopard, under lion it should be natively supported, though you may have to patch a few kexts to get OpenCL working.

okay, i´ll try it after christmas time.

i´ve a legal version of snow leopard to, but where i can find the needed kexts? i´ve looked at kexts.com but didn´t find anything.


Can you help me please?


For Graphicscard i plan to try the kexts for gtx 580 (desktop edition ) and edit the devid and hardware id. think this could work.

And GTX580M is supported by nVidiaUpdate from tonymacx86 forum.


So have nice Christmas time


Best wishes from Germany
