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?

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.

Not until the sources for the kernel comes out, which will be after Lion is officially released.

Can you tell me how you want to run 10.7 with a amd?
Because there is no kernel which allow to run a amd with lion!!!

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.
