Boot the computer in verbose mode.

When you start to boot the computer, it will say Chameleon at the top of the screen and start counting down from 5. Immediately press any key. Then on the command line, type: -v followed by <Enter>

When the boot hangs, what does it say? Or post a pic so someone can look at it.

It is highly strange that the screen is totally blank after booting with -v. But I suspect a kernel problem. According to the instructions given with iAtkos v7, it says the following about kernels:

Kernels: 2 kernels and 3 choices. A custom kernel must be selected for AMD CPU's.
1- Not selecting none of the kernels. Stock kernel will be used by this way. More compatible systems may not select none of the kernels and use stock kernel.
2- 9.5.0 Voodoo kernel. This is more compatible and has many add-ons.
3- 9.7.0 Voodoo kernel. This is adds support for new Intel Core I7 series.


So for AMD you must select a kernel. I vote for the 9.7.0 Voodoo kernel. You should be able to boot iAtkos v7 and unselect everything except the 9.5.0 Voodoo kernel and then install. This should install only the kernel.

This doesn't necessarily get you out of the woods, but if we can get -v to tell us something, then we hae a chance to figure out what needs to be fixed.

All the white text scrolling down the screen is the scanning of the drivers. After that is when the real boot operation takes place. And for that, the screen turns black and it reboots. There is nothing to take a picture of that is useful.

What model of Asus do you have?


Also, Google the following and watch some of the videos: mac os x amd e-350
