I am trying to install OS X Lion on a Macbook 4,1 which I've upgraded to 4 GB of RAM.
It should support this OS, however I cannot get my Mac to see the USB drive as a bootable option. It's a SANDISK Data traveler 16GB
So far I've tried
- Flashing the drive initially to Mac OS Extended (Journaled)
- Partion the drive as GUID
- Restoring the install DMG which should according to most guides make the drive bootable
However even though the drive mounts in my OS (10.5.8) it won't show in the startup disks as a bootable option.
I've tried using two permissions reset programs, another USB stick and even reseting the NVRAM. But still no joy. Does anyone know of anything else it could be?
