Lion with AMD

Has anyone had any luck with installing Lion dev preview on an AMD system? If so, any tricks/advice you can pass along?

Thanks!

Well my first guess is you would need kexts for all your hardware(At the very least the basic stuff to run it) and a patched kernel because AMD can't run vanilla.

Computer: Gateway 838GM | 9.5.0 Vodoo Kernel |2.0 RC4 Chameleon Bootloader | Processor:Intel Pentium 4 630 / 3 GHz | RAM: 512MB | OS: Windows 7 32BIT, OSx86 iPC 10.5.6 | Mainboard Chipset: Intel 915G Express | Graphics Card:Integrated Intel GMA 900 | Video Memory: Dynamic Video Memory Technology 3.0 | Audio:ALC 860 |Card Reader:8 in 1 Integrated| Hard Drives:1x 200GB SATA(Win 7), 1x 320GB SATA(OS X) Both Internal

Yep, can't wait to get a new legacy kernel for 10.7.4.. not sure what the process for upgrading will be from 10.6.8. I'd rather not have to do a full fresh install. I hope nawcom needing to step away for a while doesn't delay getting a legacy kernel. Best of wishes to him though.
