Hi all,

I'm trying to install osx lion 10.7.4 on following hardware:



Intel E2180


ATI 4850

500GB Samsung SATA HDD


I created a bootable USB stick formated with mbr scheme and mac os journaled file system and restored Baseimage.dmg image to it , also installed chameleon and extralion.pkg to usb like in this tutorial

Here's the problem



Any help is apreciated

What's on your chameleon.boot.plist? Have you tried booting with GraphicsEnabler=No? Did you install any extra kext, like nullcpupowermanagement?

I can't find chameleon.boot.plist in extra folder but i have com.apple.boot.plist and it contains

<plist version="1.0">


<key>Instant Menu</key>




<key>Kernel Flags</key>









I tried with -GraphicsEnabler=No and same result, i have installed nullcpupowermanagement and alc889a kext.

I've managed to get to the installer screen but i have a ps/2 mouse and it doesn't work.

I tried t o put ps2 kexts in extra/extensions on my usb also in S/L/E but still doesn't work.
