1. Install Path Finder (this is an enhanced Finder App http://www.cocoatech.com/ )

 

2. Double click the MLion dmg file to mount it

 

3. Enable invisible files to be shown, in Path Finder R. click-Show View Options-check Show Invisibles

 

4. Navigate to the mounted MLion dmg and drag BaseSystem.dmg to Documents Folder

 

5. Now in Path Finder Navigate to BaseSystem.dmg in Documents and R. click, uncheck Invisible so the item will not have an invisible flag!

 

6. In Disk Utility select your hard drive from the left, click on the Restore Tab and for the Source you will choose the BaseSystem.dmg in Documents (must not be invisible). Drag your new MLion Install partition from the list on the left into the Destination Slot (make sure Erase Destination & Replace is checked). Then Restore

 

7. Once the dmg has been restored, navigate to System/Installation/ in your new MLion Install partition (which should now be Mac OS X Base System) and delete the Packages Alias

 

8. Copy Packages Folder from the MLion Image to your new Mac OS X Base System Partition to /System/Installation using Path Finder … must have invisible flag (!)

- also copy “mach_kernel” from the Lion Image to the root of Mac OS X Base System Partition … must have invisible flag also (to make files invisible, in Path Finder, R. click on them and choose Get Info, check Invisible)

 

9. Reboot and boot in MLion Install partition (after installing those 2 kexts)

 

10. The end.

That's only to create the "Installation disk". You need the boot loader (a few posts back) and fakesmc.kext (S/L/E)

Oh ok, my bad. Let me go try that now. Will report back.

 

EDIT: Ok I installed the boot loader, and used kext wizard to install the fakesmc.kext to S/L/E, but I am still hanging at the Apple logo on boot. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that I have a fermi card?

Try booting with -v. You probably have the same or similar problem I do. I`m stuck at IOUSBHIDDriver (waiting for root device). Anyone knows how to fix this?

Use -v flag at boot. Post a pic if you can.

So what I did was I restored the USB image to a spare partition I made. I then booted from the partition (because the USB wouldn't let me get past the post screen) and when I booted with -v I got up to "[PCI configuration begin]". Just to note I copied the extras folder from my Lion installation onto the drive because that is what the guide I was following said to do. It has a dsdt, but I don't think that matters because I had this issue before with lion and when I added the GraphicsEnabler=Y it got passed this. my com.apple.boot.plist has that, but I think I need to try org.chameleon.boot.plist. Will try that and report back.

Chameleon 2.1svn r11xx and up, doesn't use com.apple.boot.plist anymore.

OK, got passed the PCI Configuration begin with npci=0x2000. Now I am getting a kernel panic. I attached a picture of it below.

Everything is normal..there waiting to open the screen settings to make the stop there.

Does anyone know why;

 

I had the same issue, I formatted the HD and reinstalled except I installed using the latest Chameleon without editing the PLIST and it worked fine.

Remove System/Library/Extensions/AppleGraphicsControl.kext/Contents/Plugins/ApplePolicyControl from the installer. I had the same problem and that fixed it.

GOT IT! I had to delete AppleTyMCEDriver.kext from S/L/E on the drive I copied the USB to. Reason was that was giving me a panic because I have a system definition MacPro 4,1. Installing now.

ApplePolicyControl.kext from

/System/Library/Extensions/AppleGraphicsControl.kext/Contents/PlugIns

"Mac OS X can't be installed on this computer.

This version of OS X 10.7 cannot be intalled on this computer.

If you want to restore your sistem from a time machine backup, click restore from backup."

And it gives me two options: restore from backup or restart..
