Before procedure I would suggest right click on the install file and select show packages contents. Then follows the steps:
1) Go to Disk Utility and click on the plus sign to create a new 10GB partition.
2) Mount your OSX Lion dmg
3) Mount BaseSystem.dmg. then go to the disk utility .select the partitions and restore it.
4) After the restore operation complete unmount the partions you have made.Delete the packages file.
5) .Open the Mac OS X Install ESD and copy the packages folder and Paste the packages folder in System file.
6) Open Mac OS X Install ECD and copy .disk_lable,boot.efi, files to the root of your new partition. This might be use full for you.

The above procedure which you shows might be useful in some one but it not useful in my operating system. I was attempting to do this but refuses to install on the existing 10.6.8 partition with a "Mac OS X cannot start from this disk. If you have another tutorial like this please reply back it would be useful for it .Any way thanks fro the suggestions and reply .Waiting for reply.

I would recommended that you should use a fresh installer if possible. If you don?t think to have a fresh installer I could suggest you is your motherboard is supportable.Try to find out in the official website of Samsung and sort out the things.May be thins will help you out to solve the things .Thank you.
