I have the same problem with no SSD, just regular HDDs.

I have tried Chimera 1.4.1 as well with no success.

I got it working, with Chimera 1.4.1.

First, I cleared the SSD and installed Lion. Then, I ran MultiBeast 3.8 (UserDSDT). Then, I installed Lion again on the same drive, and I ran MultiBeast again, only for network, audio, and disks. Finally, I ran the latest MultiBeast for TRIM support and to move kexts to S/L/E.

I can't get it to boot into the install at all. I wish I could install lion, but I get these errors before even being able to load the installer.

Are you using UniBeast? You might be able to avert the error in some cases by specifying the rd=<your disk> startup flag. This worked for me at various points.

So glad to hear you GOT IT WORKING, Thom t D!!! Excellence in motion.

Some of my troubles were not using the right DSDT and having some leftover kexts from previous installs, I believe....
