PHP / VB.Net / C# / Objective C programmer by night; Systems administrator by day, with a nasty craving for tearing apart my house room by room and remodeling it on the weekends.

comment Core 2 Duo MacBook Pro not taking OS X
Yes, its the same image as Apple has posted on their site. I followed that guide as best as I could (apart from installing OS 9) - 10.5 still boots fine. The system is perfectly operational and has no problems other than I can't install a new OS. The only thing I can think left to do is swap the hard drive? I've tried everything else...

Theres articles everywhere saying burning the Lion DMG (install esd.dmg) to dvd and booting works just fine. Snow leopard was a DVD and yes holding the option key when booting shows the DVD there (or the hard drive or the usb with the image restored to it) - none of those options worked.
