    Hi mates, i'm following some tutorials to try to install lion on my macbook pro but i got no-no sign and i can't use it. Did you try some of them and get it working?

    thanks for all.

    Lion NEEDS a 64 bit CPU which means the Core Duo and Core Solo will not work. People who get Lion and Mountain Lion on 2006 vintage iMacs and Mac Minis do so by upgrading the CPU to a Core 2 first

    Apple never sold a MacBook Pro with a Core Solo CPU. Do you have a Core 2 Duo or Core Duo CPU? Which model computer do you have?
