Install Lion via terminal [possible]?

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to install Lion via terminal with:

sudo open /Volumes/LionPen/System/Installation/Packages/OSInstall.mpkg

In Leopard and Snow Leopard this method works but not in Lion.


Getting error:

The installation failed.

The installer could not install the software because there was no software found to install.


When booting from LionPen (USB stick) it's ok, but I want to do it via terminal.

Am I missing something?


Do I have to change something in the script of OSInstall.mpkg?

It doesn't work, need to boot with installer.


Nawcom released patched OSInstall framework and mpkg to allow installation in MBR partitions. I don't know if it also allows installation from running system.
