Working Lion on Dell N15011 but cant boot from harddrive

Question

This is so frustrating usually i work stuff out myself but im really stuck on this one ive tried everything. I can only boot lion with my usb which has chameleon on it. Ive tried several bootloaders on my hard drive and all fail to find the bootloader cuase i get a black screen saying.

boot0: test

I have used MB{censored}, Chameleon standalone, and the latest ive have now is chameleon wizard and yes i have read a similar topic on here (http://www.osx86.net/10-7-lion/12769...oot-error.html) regarding this error i followed thoose steps and no good. The system doesnt seem to recognise the bootloader its driving me nuts.

My specs are

Dell Laptop

4G Mem

i7

650 Gig hard drive split into 2 partitions one with Mac lion and the other windows 7

please help

I would make sure the Firmware on the laptop is current . Then from a Working Mac, you need to recreate the U{censored} flash drive, with current MB{censored} for lion and the specific kexts that you need.
