you need to be on an ext file system and use a cm compatible kernel

if your base rom is bieltv cm7 then you would need to use his kernel


there are plenty of guides out there that tell you how to port a rom

Delete the boot.img file no need for it..
If using Biel cm7 as base flash specific kernel
If using Percy cm7 flash CM#2 kernel.

like I said boot.img is the kernel

you dont want to flash another phones kernel on your phone so you just delete it or replace it with one from your phone buts its probably better to just delete it and leave the rom kernel free as unless you have permission and the kernel source you cant post it and most people like to choose what kernel they use

you can remove the line for boot.img from the updater script if you want to

when porting a rom you are just looking at the system folder and then if there is anything extra in the updater script you can look at that
