    Hi guys,
    I have a problem installing OS X Lion.

    Yesterday I downloaded the OS X GM version from the pirate bay, Because I just can't wait for it lol. So then I open the .zip file and extract it to my local drive. Then I open it and my MacBook restarted. After that, when the system trying to install OSX, there was a problem with the system or hard drive. Its like "incorrect thread" or something like that.

    Well, then i panicked.Because i try to fix it thru disk utilities and it keep failing. Try to format the HD and it fails. So I restarted my MacBook, but it won't go to the snow leopard. Keep booting to Lion Install. I already try everything. Inserting the Snow Leopard CD to reinstall the OS, it did not work. Keep saying that it can't install it on my drive. Even when I try to format the HD it won't detect it. Its like the Hard drive is locked or something.

    I already try to press "opt" when the system boot but there is only one option which is "install lion". I also tried the start up disk but the system said that there's no enough information so I can't boot to my MacHD Hard Drive.

    I really don't know what to do now. Please Help Me. :(:(

    there's a "hack" to do the install!

    If you're not a developer it might be too difficult to do "the hack"
