Hello folks

Recently I've been trying to install my first hackintosh.

I chose iAtkos L2 (Mac OS X Lion 10.7.2).
I burned everything I need on DVD's. So I boot up with iAtkos L2, tried various "launch options" (or w/e it called) such as:
GraphicsEnabler=No,
-x,
-v,
mach_atom
etc. Nothing worked really.

I took a video to describe my problem with the iAtkos L2:


*I'm not trying to do this on a virtual machine.. it was just easier to record*

Basically this screen just freeze, and the installation won't start.
Can someone know why?

My laptop specs:

Asus K55VM
Intel i7 3610QM
nVidia GeForce 630M + Intel HD 4000

Thanks in advance!

iATKOS L2 is a Lion 10.7.2 distro. Intel Ivy Bridge processor support and nVidia 6xx series support only came in OS X Mountain Lion. Try this Mountain Lion retail install guide: http://www.insanelym...l=&fromsearch=1

Hey there!

I researched about the 630M, and i found that this model is not supported..
Is there any possible way to turn off the Nvidia card, and enabled the Intel HD4000?
I already saw some guys make it work with the HD4000

About the tutorial you gave - I don't have mac yet. (It seems like it's require for this tutorial)

The problem of this frozen Apple screen is very common. I didn't find a solution yet, and I search for A LOT of websites.. :(

Intel HD Graphics 4000 works out of the box in OS X Mountain Lion. nVidia 630M may or may not work in Mountain Lion, but honestly I don't know. You could borrow a friend's Mac or go to the Apple store and do it.

The reason that you are getting stuck at the Apple logo is because no Ivy Bridge support like I said earlier. I did a test on a friend's laptop with Ivy Bridge and it got stuck at a black screen in verbose mode and the Apple logo with iATKOS L2. It booted the OS X Mountain Lion installer however.
