ASUS P5Q Turbo
Intel Core 2 Quad Core XEON
500 Gb IDE drive (triple boot with Windows 7 / iAtkos L2 (working - no specific video driver) / iAtkos ML2 (only safe mode)
nVidia GeForce 610M
Last year, I successfully installed iAtkos L2 on my system. I had an old graphic card which was not working with OSX lion anyway. Just had to delete the drive ATIRadeon(xxx).kext and things where working fine. I had to replace this kext from this link:
This all went well.
This year I decide to go with iAtkos ML2. Burned at DVD DL... Try to install but kept getting waiting for device.
Finally figured that it was not seeing my IDE drive.
So I modified my iAtkosML2.dmg (by using the hdiutil convert tool). Then added the the AppleVIAATA.kext to it. Then burnted another DVD DL. This time it worked but it is extremely slow at some steps.
So installed it all with specs coming from another forum:
Then I used my OSX Lion partition to boot and copied into the ML drive /System/Library/Extensions the AppleVIAATA.kext file.
Rebooted with ML in safe mode and things are good.
Tried various scenarios to get it to boot in normal mode but hangs near the end of the boot.
The boot log is very similar at the end whether it is in safe mode or normal mode.... Just wondering if anyone has similar problems.
BTW I just changed my graphic card for a newer one hoping that it would solved the problem but no...
Any ideas ?
