                Run installation script
                ./installer

                Select lionUSBinstaller 
                Select "Prepare lionUSBstick" option 

                Wait for the installer to finish
 
Use Dell Inspiron 1525 to perform the following steps:
  • Adjust BIOS setting:
            Load default settings:
                    Maintenance > Load Defaults > Continue
            Verify SATA is configured for AHCI:
                    Onboard Devices > SATA Operation
            Verify SpeedStep is Enabled
                    Performance > SpeedStep Enable
 
  • Use lionUSBinstaller stick to boot Dell Inspiron 1525. Wait for the menu screen to come up. You should see lionUSBinstaller. Select it and press Enter. Continue with the installation.
  • Use Disk Utility to change the hard drive partition. Create 1 Mac OS Extended (Journaled) partition for OS X. Use GUID scheme. Installation will take between 20 to 50 minutes.
  • Reboot using lionUSBinstaller stick. At the menu select your installation hard drive. OS X will boot up and you will be presented with the desktop.
  • Download hackintosh_dell_1525_10.7.0_v3.6.zip package and extract it to your desktop. Package contains the following:
    • Chameleon 2.0 RC5 r1331 (thanks Voodoo team)
    • patched DSDT for BIOS version A17
    • all necessary kexts
    • installer script
  • Start Terminal (Application > Utilities > Terminal)
                Become root: 
                sudo -s

                cd Desktop/hackintosh*
                Run installation script
                ./installer

                Select installation hard drive
                Select "i" to start auto installer 

                Wait for the installer to finish                   
  • Use ./installer script or Disk Utility to repair disk permissions (Application > Utilities > Disk Utility)
  • Remove lionUSBinstaller stick during the reboot. OS X should boot directly from the hard drive.
You should now have fully working Lion 10.7.0 on Dell Inspiron 1525.
