Put Extra kexts to /System/Library/Extensions and rebuild kernelcache.

Suggest to install Clover EFI to a SD card or flash drive with MBR HFS+, it works fine.

@crazybirdy I went on and installed clover using your pkg instead. I format my USB flash with MBR HFS+ as you suggest. Now all i get is a blinking line when i try to boot from it. Whats wrong?

@crazybirdy Ok now it works. Opened the case and changed the SATA hub of my lion installation to SATA0 and all works good now.
