Trying to install OS X Lion, machine hangs on boot

I have a Macbook Air A1237 that I'm trying to install Lion on, but when it restarts to complete installation, it just hangs on a white screen. I've used a usb stick that I put Lion on, I've downloaded Lion from the app store and installed it that way, but it always does the same thing. I can only install as high as 10.6.8 on the laptop. I've read that it can go as high as 10.7.5 and that's all I'm trying to do here.

I do not have a complete history on the laptop. I bought it broken with the intention to fix and sell. I replaced the screen and the lvds cable. I've been working on this thing for the better part of a year trying everything I know how to do to fix it. SMC reset, PRAM reset, replaced the hard drive with a brand new Super Talent 128gb ssd. Nothing has worked. Is there anything I'm missing?

My fear with this is that the logic board needs replaced.

Check to see if the current system is indeed 10.6.8 and not 10.6.3.

It is. I have run all the updates after a clean install of 10.6.3. I have the App Store in the dock. I've clean installed and updated this thing more times than I can even remember.


Need to know the exact model. The very early Core 2 Duos maxed out at 10.6.8
