I know this is really not a common request, but i need something...

Can someone who have a compatible Mac could do a fresh Lion install on a little partition, Image it into a DMG, torrent me it and keep seeding until the download is finish.

I know, i ask a lot, but here's why:

I have an Early 2006 iMac, wich i upgraded it to a Core 2 Duo, but i only have 1,5Gb of RAM, and i need Lion. I tried every method i could founded on the Lion installer, Final release, Golden master, 1gb patch (OSInstall.mpkg), Upgraded Mac patch, but no of them work, always had the message: "Lion need 2Gb of RAM" or "Lion isn't supported by this computer"

My father had an iMac Late 2006 24" (wich died, that's where i found the Core 2 Duo), it was running Lion with 1Gb of RAM (come with 4Gb at base, but both stick has failed, and i does runned with 2x512Mb stick), and it runned great

And, with a fresh install, i could just restore the DMG into the second partition of my SSD, then just remove the PlatformSupport.plist and it could boot (then i will customize the install for myself, and ect...)

I'm not sure if someone could do this, but i'll be soo thankfull. :D

Thank you. :)

I wouldn't think so. To quote the rules,

http://www.everymac.com/systems/apple/imac/specs/imac-core-2-duo-2.16-17-inch-specs.htmlI am assuming this is the one you have? Do you have any of the older OS's 10.6? At least the disc. One of the things I would do first see if I can get it off of eBay at least 10.6 or 10.5. Then check OWC for the for the 2-2GB sticks. This particular iMac is easy to take apart so I would seriously think SSD as the main and get a data doubler (again OWC) and put either a SSD or mechanical drive in the spot. Move the User directory to that position (remember in System Preference>>Users to point to that drive).  Also look at the display as these are noted for going south and  a vendor (check iFixit) has an adaptor to use a standard laptop screen (you'll save some $$).  I know your outside of CONUS at least you'll have some info.
