Okay, so I've been trying to install Iatkos l2 all morning on my custom built PC, When I boot it up, I get a unavailable logo over the apple logo,when I install it through the command prompt styled window, It loops over "Still waiting for root device". I tried booting in safemode, tried the rd=disk0, pcirootuid=1, # -pci 1, and a ton of other things I read on the web. Nothing works and I am stumped. My hardware is as follows:
i5 2500k
gtx 570
4gb ddr3 crossiar xms3
Asus p8z68-v motherboard
2tb western digital hdd 5400rpm
And an exteran HP DVD writer (1270e)
Also, I'm running my pc on windows 7, and created a 20gb partition for the iatakos, any ideas ???

Hmm, well I already checked my bios settings and they seem to be good, Sata is set to AHCI, SMART is Enabled, But I don't think anything else is relevent since I only have one drive in my pc, which is sata, the dvd writer is external. Also, it doesn't boot into the osx installer at all, so I don't know if I can work with the injectors.

I figured it out, it was due to using an external DVD drive, I took it out of the en closer, installed it in the pc and it worked.. :)
