In Topic: Mountain Lion on dell 1318?

26 December 2012 - 06:43 AM

Hi I'm pretty much in the same situation you are. I tried to install iatkos L2 with no success. Next, I installed iatkos s3 v2. Then I tried to upgrade it from 10.6.7 to 10.6.8 but got a kernel panic. Could you please detail what you did in order to get your 1318 upgraded to 10.6.8?

It's basically the same procedure as upgrading to 10.6.7 but u have 2 more kexts to back up but in order for your wifi to work you need to back up the 10.6.7 version of the airport monitor file or something and replace it when you upgrade otherwise it'll keep freezing up and be real laggy. Google what the actual file name and location because I don't remember exactly and can't look it up atm. Good luck!

So I successfully installed iatkos l2 but the first boot gives me a kernel panic and it has to do with some kexts, that begin with "com.apple.iokit" and idk what to do, check out my post on this other thread gives more of an explanation

hello, I installed iatkos l3 successfully on my dell inspiron 1318 and at the first boot i get a kernel panic something about loading a kext.

So i fixed (most) of the problems I was having on 10.6.8. Can someone please tell me if it's possible for me to upgrade to Lion on my Dell? I can't run iAtkos L2 without it freezing in the middle of installion. So is it possible I could install it step by step from the installation packages, in /System/Installation/Packages on my other HD partition ? If I can, what order should I do it in? I know it could work cuz I've tried it already but I don't know what order to do it in excactly. The installation runs more smoothly that way. Or if there's a way I could fix the problem of it freezing during the regular boot install then how exactly do I fix that? and how do I upgrade from 10.6.8 ? Thanks. :P (check out the snapshots below to see what I mean.)

In Topic: Iatkos v7 problem

Just try to re install iAtkos v7. And you can't update directly from v7 from OS X 10.6, Try downloading Snow Leopard iATKOS s3 v2 as that is OS X 10.6.8 :D Hope i helped

Well I figured out how to install iAtkos S3 v2 on my Dell and I did a vanilla install on my AA1 ZG5 (10.6)
On my inspiron I sorta successfully updated to 10.6.8 using a method i found on the iatkos forum which worked great for 10.6.7 but from 10.6.7 to 10.6.8 I have problems. The computer now is really slow and alot of the kexts don't work anymore, like my BroadcomFix(wifi), BCM5906MEthernet, and the kexts for USB storage. Popping in a CD/DVD doesn't work either. I've tried repairing permissions and reinstalling the same kexts and whatnot but none of that works, still slow and nonworking kexts.
If anyone can tell me how to install iAtkos L2 onto the Dell then please do tell I already have both a restored image on a USB and burned to a DVD both of which freeze up whenever I try to install.
As for my Acer I have no idea what to do because when ever I try to update to 10.6.7 or .8 it either gives me an error or gives me a reboot-loop after a successful install.
