Preparing Before Install

- Latest Chameleon Boot Loader
- Previous Snow Leopard as main partition
- 8 GB Fast USB FlashDisk
- Macosx LION Installation application from Apple Store
- Some kexts for Lion's Extra folder

Step By Step

- Boot under Previous Snow Leopard
- Make USB Flashdisk Bootable Lion Installer ( You can googling how to make this happen )

- Install The latest Chameleon Boot Loader into USB FlashDisk Lion Installer

- Put some kexts into USB Installer at /Extensions extra folder to make you succesfuly boot till lions installer menu

JMicron 36xATA
JMicron 36xSATA.kext

- Restart and Boot with USB Lion Installer FlashDisk ( boot with Flags "cpus=1" without quote if you have boot problem )
- Install Lion
- Restart when done
- Boot Into Previous Snow Leopard
- Make Extra Folder in Macosx Lion root partition if not already there and put all kext ( From USB Installer ) into Extensions folder in Extra Folder were you just make before

- Restart and try boot from Lions Partition
- You can search Atheros Ethernet Card Driver to make it works
- VoodooHDA for onboard ALC887 Sound

UPDATE to 10.7.3

- Official Macosx LION 10.7.3 Client COMBO update
- If everything works fine you can stright update to 10.7.3 Remember to remove ( or Backup ) VoodooHDA kext 1st in /S/L/E before ( If you already Install it ) restart system then go to update. If updating work fine, remove ( or backup to another folder ) AppleHDA.kext from /S/L/E then restart, now u can install voodooHDA.kext for ALC887

I'am use Geforce 250 GTS 1 GB Vram, this card works awesome with official Nvidia ( Quadro if you gonna make CUDA Gpu acceleration Enable ) and Official CUDA driver. Boot with boot flag "GraphicsEnabler=yes" in org.chameleon.plist or with DSDT patcher

Notes : Chameleon Bootloader currently support modern GPU's. Just try Boot with -v "GraphicsEnabler=Yes" with Quote or without, to make sure your GPU support for CI/QE Accelelator on Macosx. If with command "GraphicsEnabler=Yes" can boot without any problems that mean your GPU's support hardware accelelator on macosx .. congrats. You can add that command into your Extra folder inside org.chameleon.Boot.plist with text editor
