try typing -v at the boot prompt and follow the progress, when it stops completely tell me (roughly) what it shows that looks like it might be an error. Perhaps take a picture.

You might also try at boot: -v PCIRootUID=1

Also make sure that in bios your SATA is set for AHCI mode.

I have the same problem and executed both flags, -v PCIRootUID=1 and PCIROOTID=1 arch=i386, but still can't boot.

I got this 2 lines on the screen:

'ACPI table not found:DSDT.aml'
'ACPI table not found:SSDT.aml'

What should to do?

You can check if your PC BIOS is at AHCI or IDE mode. If IDE mode, change to AHCI, if AHCI mode, try using USB retail install (8GB USB Drive or more).

Thank you Vinnicius. I can't change it to whatever mode as there is no such option in BIOS. My PC is SATA non-AHCI.

No, that's a myth, though it makes things easier if your SATA controller supports it, AHCI mode is not a requirement to install OS X. I post this at least once a week, hopefully I'll be able to puncture this myth eventually.
There are drivers available for both nforce and intel SATA controllers that can't be set to AHCI mode.

'ACPI table not found:DSDT.aml'
'ACPI table not found:SSDT.aml'

Those are status messages from the Chameleon boot loader, not error messages. When you see these messages, OS X hasn't begun to load yet. Chameleon looks for ACPI table dumps in /Extra and shows these messages when it doesn't find any. Nothing to worry about.

Thanks Moderator. I am now not worried about those status messages but still wonder why iAtkos L1/L2 can't boot on my Acer Aspire 5573Z which is not like any other iAtkos version.

I booted with -x -v and ended with black screen even no error shown.
I booted with -v -x cpus=1, again stucked with black screen and no error.

I don't know what to do now.

A few weeks ago I installed it on my desktop PC Dell Vostro 220 and I got no problem at all.

OMG! I have been missing you Mac OS X Lion Hackintosh. Did my dream vanish with no solution? Oh, guys help me please!

Ok, i have the same problem. Don't panic ! Run cpu-z from an os on your computer, and look at the "multiplier" (we going to call him m). Then, load your bootloader, then type " -v busratio=m ". If i don't works, try with " mach_qoopz -v busratio=m "

IMPORTANT => type in the right order !

And tell me if it works !

Thanks mac35000, I'll tell you whatever the result is. My OS is now Leopard 10.5.8 and I'm using CPU-X to get the multiplier.

So, Xuraz, if your computer is dell, you can try downloading chocolate kernel (google is your friend ;) ), placing it in "/ " in your drive and typing : " chocolate_kernel -v -x busratio=m ".

Hello mac35000. I've got the multiplier (x13.5) but sorry to tell you, neither of the boot flags work. It says "Can't find kernel (mach_qoopz)" when I type mach_qoopz -v busratio=13.5. Did I make some mistyping?

mount your installation media on other computer, and search for the file "mach_qoopz", who is under a lot of others!! ;) If you don't find this file, download it and place it in your / on your installation media. This kernel is the best for dell computers !!

I think you can't enter ".something" in a multiplier, so test only with "13".
The error message "Can't find kernel (mach_qoopz)" appears because you don't have qoopz kernel installed.
There is 2 solution :

1) Download it and place it in "/ " ( google is your friend ;))

2) Use "chocolate_kernel" (if he is installed, i remember he is on L1 but for L2 i don't know :) )

Agian, downloaded iATKOS_L2.dmg and restore it to USB Flash Drive, hoping of successful boot as none can help me solve this problem. Poor everyone... :wallbash:
