[macvoiceover] Re: Problem installing Lion

Hi Cheryl,

Thanks for your further comments.

Indeed, my HD has SL OSX 10.6.8 and is the original drive some 3 years old.  
The drive has not been re-partitioned and my external drive does have a 
re-bootable version on it created by SuperDuper.  I have never had any problems 
upgrading the operating system.

Hope that helps

Ray

Is Snow Leopard on the hard drive? I'm assuming it must be or you couldn't have 
downloaded the installer from the app store. Well, actually you could if you 
had Snow Leopard elsewhere or where using a dvd.

You aren't the only one with this problem as a quick google showed me. Is this 
the original hard drive or had you replaced your hard drive at some point? That 
was one possible cause I heard though nobody seemed to know why this would make 
a difference. One person who had replaced the drive said that repartitioning to 
make it slightly smaller solved the problem for him but I don't think it's the 
size per se. If you are backed up and can move the Installer App somewhere 
safe, you could try just erasing and repartitioning your hard drive but I know 
that's kind of a drastic step when you can't be sure it will solve the problem; 
I'm not recommending it necessarily but just listing it as a possibility.
