I am trying to install OSX Lion onto my computer build. I have looked through hackintosh forums and this build does work. I was hoping someone here might know anything about this. I have had great help from this forum and am not having any help from other forums. I have seen other osx threads and here is mine.

I have tried all the OSX versions i have.
I have tried retail 10.7.3, Lion l1 & l2, Leopard and Snow Leopard... with rBoot
All times I see some initial lines and in the iatkos I see the stuff after that(with grey background). When the GUI should come up it does not. What shows is black screen.
I have installed windows 7 on the system and partitioned the drive to install the osx but I cannot get to the GUI so nothing is happening.
My BIOS version is F8, It have tried most of these in F5(came with it).
What settings does my BIOS need to be?
I was told that all my specs work, so it should be the BIOS settings. If pictures could be provided that would be great.
I have tried using another (other than the on-board) graphics card. The sapphire 6450 but the same thing happens.
When i verbose boot, some lines come up CPU, RAM stuff.
Before I able to read the last lines it turns black. It is like it is switching screens and them it settles to to the black.
I ran iatkos l2 in virtualbox in my windows 7 partition. I get stuck at "Starting Darwin x86". Is there something to fix for this?
