Hi,

I believe there is an issue with Drivers not being in the current Lion Build since it refuses to install on just released 2011 MacBook Pro line.

Anyone have it working?

It's not drivers, it's missing libraries and frameworks.

I think I'm just getting out the frustration of having the latest hardware and stuff not working.

Well given that this a developer preview. Contact apple and/or log an issue in apple's developer forum

It's the sandy bridge processors. Apple needs to add kernel support for new processors like SB when they add them to the first new machines. The new MBPs are the first to use SB, so apple compiled a special version of 10.6.6 with kernel support for SB specifically for these new machines. The build of 10.6.6 you have is different than the one the rest of us have.

10.7b1, as others have pointed out, is an older developer build that the Lion team has been working on that they just made public. Apple (apparently) didn't make a special 10.7 build with kernel support for SB yet.

Unfortunately there's nothing you can do but wait. The good news is that 10.6.7 is almost out, and that will have full kernel support for SB to bring all of the macs back in-line. Odds are they will merge the changes with 10.7 when that comes out and release beta 2 soon after.
