How Install OSX Lion on PC

What we need:
a) an Intel Core2 Duo computer ( mine Optiplex 760)
b) an USB pen (8 Gb is fine )
c) an Hackintosh running Mac Os X to create Lion.dmg and USB Pen.

Start Mac Os X Leo /Snow Leo

0. Create OSX Lion for Hackintosh
a. Download Lion GM/Retail (11A511 )
b. find InstallESD.dmg -> "Install Mac Os X"
Open and mount InstallESD.dmg
Show HiddenFiles -> here
Find BaseSystem.dmg inside InstallESD.dmg
Mount BaseSystem.dmg
c. Using Disk utility create an new immage.dmg DVD 4,6 Gb read and write , rename like Lion.dmg
d. Using Disk utility restore BaseSystem.dmg on new image Lion.dmg
e. mount Lion.dmg and rename volume like OSX LION
Delete packages link inside /System/installation
Copy Packages folder from InstallESD.dmg to Lion.dmg inside /System/Installation/ folder
f. Copy needed Kexts on Lion.dmg inside /System/Library/Extentions
* nullCPUPowermanagenent.kext
* ElliotForceLegacyRTC.kext -> this only if you experience Bios reset

Copy Mach_Kernel from InstallESD.dmg to Lion.dmg
Copy OSinstall.mpkg patched for MBR inside /System/Installation/Packages
Copy OSinstall. patched for MBR inside /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/Install.framework/Frameworks/OSinstall.framwork/Versions/A folder

g. Install Extra_Lion.pkg on Lion.dmg -> here
h. Install Chameleon 2.0 RC5 -755.pkg on Lion.dmg -> here
Create a folder Postinstallation on Lion.dmg and copy the two pkg and the three kexts
i. With Disk Utility repair permission on Lion.dmg

1. Create Bootable USB pen with OSX Lion
a. With Disk Utility erase USB pen
GUID + HFS+ journaled
rename it "OSX Lion Boot"
b. With Disk Utility restore Lion.dmg to USB Pen

c. Install Extra_Lion.pkg to USB Pen
Install PC-EFI 10.6.pkg to USB Pen -> here
Install Chameleon 2.0 RC5 -755.pkg to USB Pen

2. Boot USB pen with OSX Lion and install
switch off PC
a) Boot newly created USB Pen
With Disk Utility Create a HFS+ journaled partition, rename it "OSX Lion"
( You can Install Lion on MBR or GUID partition)
(if you install over SL 10.6.6-10.6.8 , don't create a new partition and you will be able to upgrade your S.O. without loosing anything)
b) Boot again with USB pen and choose to boot HD
Install Kexts on S/L/E on HD with KextHelper -> here
