OS X Yosemite runs amazingly on my 2009 MacBook Pro (5,3). I don't know who started all this nonsense about Yosemite running poorly on all Macs, but it's perfectly safe and very useful on new Macs and even ones like mine that are a few years old.

To get a legal version of Lion you have to buy it here (us) or there (uk). If you live in another country replace the uk in the uk-link by the appropriate country code.

Be aware that if you succeed in installing SL Server (with Rosetta) in Parallels, it will work fine but you will not have OpenGL support, so many games will give you only the sound and no picture at all. And that was the main reason I wanted it ! ex.: Brick of Atlantis

Why do you care about legality. And anyways, just use W.I.N.E.

The best way is to just run it on an older dedicated Mac that runs SL.

You could try booting into internet recovery (hold Command+Option+R during boot) once there open disk utility and try partitioning again.

If the desired Mac is slow, you can always use another Mac to do the download of the OS X installer. Make a guest account on that Mac and sign in with your AppleID since you'll want to shift off your boss's password and get everything under an ID you control. Go to the App Store and download the installer - but don't run it. Copy that installer application ...

I had seemingly the same problem as the OP. Using the tool networksetup I found that for the given network name, some wrong DNS was configured: networksetup -getdnsservers <networkname> listed 192.168.0.1 as DNS. Using scutil --dns I've got comparable results, listing that resolver #2 used nameserver[0] : 192.168.0.1. Using the command ...

First things, power on with the space key pressed to eject the CD if needed. Then power on with command+s held - if there is any OS X volume that's bootable, you can get some basic info If not, reset the NVRAM - (Command Option P R) and hold until you hear the third boot chime. After the third chime, hold option only and you should end up at a grey screen. ...

An unrepairable disk error requires an Erase/Install of OS X. It may not cause issues right away, so get the files transferred now. In fact it may fail to even boot up. The previously mentioned shift key at boot (Safe Mode) worked. I just used Disk Utility to BACK UP the entire hard drive to a properly setup USB. That will repair the installed OS X ...

Installed Yosemite on 08 iMac. Boot up screen froze at 50%. I did the restart in Safe Boot mode as instructed above.

Please consider creating a backup first. Shutdown your mac and restart it in safe mode (on + shift). Check the HDD for defects - disk utility will be sufficient for a quick check up. read the other comments and do updates. From your logfile i guess it might be the ram - the other options are quick to check for free so do it first. Replace ram if necessary!

I tried this before reading this question. Specifically, I have two drives, SSDs sitting on PCI cards, each running its own OS. I had set up iTunes music collection to be on a standard drive, but to open when running either OS. After running it under ML, it no longer worked under SL. So Nick's hunch seem correct.
