You are using the the "org.chameleon.Boot.plist" from the pack or you are using your own???

I`m asking this because the boot flag "arch=i386" does`t work with OS X Lion...

Sorry I took a while to reply. I was travelling.

I explained wrong, Im sure im using the org.chameleon.Boot.plist from the pack, which obviously says, arch

When I try to boot up it says " Can't find ?system?Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup Kernel cache" When I try booting up from the ML system partition or my USB mac ML installer I installed all your kexts and pu tin your Extras folder and repaired permissions and rebuilt and refreshed the cache for both S/L/E and E/E and restarted ( didn't touch the DSDT folder you had)

BTW I have the Same exact specs as your laptop
