Configuration: Gigabyte GA-H67A-UD3H-B3, core i7-2600K, HD3000, Dell U2713HM

installation parameters:
bootloader
bootloader options: graphics enabler, kernel cache, built-in ethernet, PCI Root-1, graphics resolution=2560x1440
patches: Disabler, EVOreboot, RTC patch, Mac model=MacBook PRO 8.1
driver: SATA=AHCI SATA, Audio, USB 3.0=P67/H67/Z68, graphics=HD3000, network cards

I've done about 20 installations playing around with various combinations of the installation
parameters. When doing a normal boot, I end up with the stop sign above the Apple logo
and when booting with -v the last output is: Still waiting for root device.

When booting into safe mode (-x) everything works, except that the resolution is 1920x1440
which I can not change and I can not login to the App Store.
I managed once (in safe mode) to get the correct resolution and then I was also able to login
to the App Store.
Also I managed once to boot into normal mode, but then I had the wrong resolution.

Most frustrating is the experience, that the system behaves different, even in two successive
installations using the same set of parameters.

So what exatcly does the safe mode and what can I do to figure out the correct set of
parameters in order to do a normal boot getting the correct resolution ?

Not true: the downloadable iATKOS ML disc image is for burning a bootable disc (DL DVD or 8 Gb USB flash drive), that can directly boot from any (Intel 64-bit CPU) motherboard, which has a correctly configured bios setup.
That's what it's designed to do, anyway.

I think I solved my problem: replacing AHCIInjector.kext by AHCI_Extended_Injector.kext did the job.
Now all discs are recognized.
