Successfully installed iATKOS L2 OS X Lion 10.7.2 on my computer. So far, it has been working fine.
When I open Apple menu > About This Mac > Additional Info, my computer appears as Mac Pro.
Yes, there's nothing wrong with it. But I would like to see iMac instead of Mac Pro, as my computer is an all-in-one machine.
As of what I know, I am supposed to edit SMBIOS plist to do that. Is it correct?
If so, what iMac model is appropriate to my machine? Or should I just leave it as-is(Mac Pro)?

Here are the full specs:
Processor: Intel P6200 @ 2.13GHz
Chipset: Intel HM57
Graphics: Intel HD Graphics (Arrandale)
Sound: Realtek HD Audio (ALC272)
LAN: Realtek RTL8168/8111
WLAN: Atheros AR9285

Thanks artur-pt,
I tried to look for an iMac model that has Intel Arrandale CPU, but found none.
There was one with Clarkdale though. (iMac11,2 and iMac11,3)
Could you give me further help? Which one should I choose when generating SMBIOS?

Nevermind.
Loading SMBIOS with iMac11,2 model (Clarkdale one) did the job..
Thank you ! :)
