Hi valhalla,

 

Did a quick check. If your D420 is duo 2 core and GMA950 then lion can be installed. We also already have bootpack and EDP for it. You can read the wiki above on how to install.

 

Cheers!

From my reading around (it's confusing) I think the key thing is Core Duo or Core 2 Duo.

 

I have a D420 using a 1.2GHz Core Duo.

 

Processor ID is 06EC

 

Intel says this is 32bit instruction set :

http://ark.intel.com/products/27240/Intel-Core-Duo-Processor-U2500-%282M-Cache-1_20-GHz-533-MHz-FSB%29

 

So, this is definitely "dual core" but not 64bit therefore NO Lion install possible.

 

I think an update/guidance on the EDP page to check your processor ID might help some confusion. The requirement is both dual core + 64bit instruction set (please, correct me if I am wrong)

 

Finally, off topic, a bit.

Incidentally, for Snow Leopard, I have used the "single core" EDP pack successfully ... no idea if the "dual core" EDP pack would work ... might try it one day.

 

Also, I have bought a d430 "base" on ebay that I hope I can transplant into my D420 and get me the Lion!
