Hi, how did you install Lion on that D620?

 

Try and boot with -x -v -f parameters to see if you can go through.

never gets to the installing step

other than that im not sure

again im a noob when it comes to all this i know my way around windows blindfolded and am learning linux but i have no idea what your asking me to try O.o

i think its best for me to start from cratch? that way anything ive f`ed up with my noobines will be wiped clean?

Our method is to create a USB installer key (with myHack) and add the model-specific bootpack. You need to start by that but it requires access to an existing Mac or Hackintosh. Basically, follow the EDP procedure detailed in the top menu of the form/web site.

 

For Lion, make sure you install a retail version lower than 10.7.4 (eg: 10.7 or 10.7.2) to avoid installation problems.

By all means, do try, but we've had quite a lot of people reporting problems with VM.

unless i can find someone that has the usb files ready to go in a .raw file for my par build i think thats my only option or unless there is some other way but i cant think of a way of using a mac without.. using.. a mac.. that would be awsome lmao

Basically, you're asking if can OS X be installed straight away on a PC (it's a recurring question...).

 

  1. distros will somehow support this, but distros are bad: it's piracy, it's not often clean, you'll have no support for this here. In other words, you're on your own with distros...
  2. Nawcom BootCD basically offers a bootable CD to install Snow Leopard off a retail DVD or USB key, running legacy kernel. I started with that during my very early days of Hackintoshing when SL was the current version of OS X... I can be used as a temp platform from which to create a myHack USB installer.
  3. other ways that you'll find elsewhere and for which Google is your friend.

For OSXL EDP-based procedure, you need a legitimate copy of OS X and access to an existing Mac or Hackintosh to start with...
