I also have a Alienware m14x and ran in to the same problem. It's really crazy but the only way that I could get around this was to install with a snow leopard DVD, from there i partitioned my hard drive 3 ways. One for windows, one for osx, and one for the installer. I then restored the Lion image to the installer partition, used rBoot to load it up and installed like that.


Hope this helps.
