Re: Guide: GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 with ATI 6870 - Clean Lion Install
I was going to buy the usb from apple. But that price, forget it. Im going to borrow my friends MBP and buy lion then use the 16gb usb im gonna get an use unibeast. I really dont want to have to start with SL. I do however have a copy i got from my friend of SL.ghorwith said:If you're starting from scratch, there's no need to start with SL. Assuming you have a) purchased lion, and have access to a computer with SL or Lion already running, download 10.7.4 and use Unibeast to create the usb installer.boathouse said:Thank you soooooo much for clearing that up, I was wondering why no one was just using the restore thing like i thought you could.ghorwith said:Yes, of course. The USB is formatted with a MBR. When you use unibeast to create a usb to install OS X, Chimera is copied to the usb and that's what bootstraps the installation of OS X. Without that (or some similar bootstrap program), a PC can't install OS X.
Just using the disk utility to restore the lion.dmg to the usb will not work. That's why TonyMac, MacMan and crew created Unibeast.
I need to borrow my friends snow leopard so I can install that first with i boot, then use unibeast to create the chimera+bootable lion usb. then clean install from there !?
