By far the simplest way of installing CHDK is to use my STICK utility which will do the whole job - downloading and unzipping the right build, partitioning and formatting the card (if necessary), making it bootable and copying all the files to the right place. It's quite tricky to do it all yourself particularly if you are using a card larger than 4Gb on an old camera like the G7 which will need two partitions for such cards.

THANK YOU!! I used the stick  --finally-- and got a message that no firmware was available  - am I just out of luck -- or did I do something wrong?

Do you have a G7 (2006) or the new G7 X (2014)?  The last one is not currently supported.

Alternately,  what firmware version did STICK tell you was in your camera?

Did you set the SD card switch to the locked position? DId you see the CHDK logo on startup?   

If so,  CHDK activate using one of the camera's buttons - in the case of the G7 the default is the PRINT button.
