Mac OS X Lion System Requirements

If I try to install by double-clicking on the installer, it installs for a while and then fails. Is there another way I can try to install this OS? How much RAM does it have? Lion requires at least 2GB.

More than enough. But it is not because of memory. Ok, one more try: There are so many that can go wrong with a DVD that I'm not going to worry about that Forgot your password? Or sign in with one of these services.

I used this for a friend who wanted me to upgrade his computer but his imac only had 1 GB ram. I made him order a 6GB set from OWC but in the mean time I at least got his os installed, something he wouldn't be able to do by himself. It looks like you just replace the file I am dual booting with Windows 7 and its a real pain to keep adding and removing ram on the fly.

Thanks for the patch.
