i know lion is not anymore compatible with core duo or core solo but i found a website which claims that we could install Lion on a intel atom machine.

With Lion now out, is there any way we can get a patched kernel for Lion with this file removed? I haven't tried it yet, but I don't know whether the "patched" kernel in the above post will work with the retail version yet.

I read that we won't be able to launch finder as it's only 64. But we could run path finder.

Guys i emailed merklort or whatever his name is and got this reply:
"In order to boot lion on the Dell mini 10v, you need to do two things.
1) recompile the kernel. A binary kernel patch is possible, but it
would require adding in a large block of code that was optimized out
when initially compiled, so the easiest thing ot do is just recompile
the kernel. 2) Add emulation for 64bit binaries. This requires a
couple of things, the first being a modified version of the winehelper
kext that I wrote a tine ago, qemu-user modified to support running
x86_64 binaries on mac, and modifying xnu to prefer 32bit binaries if
both exists. The emulation is required because finder is 64bit only, I
don't believe anything else is needed to be emulated in the final
install (however most things on the initial installer need to be).
I'm not actively working on this, however I'll probably try it our in
my free time (which is very limited).
So... yes it's possible. The released source code for the kernel can
be recompiled and booted on the 10v."
seems like too much work in my opinion, ill stay with snow leopard
