  1. First of all thanks for setting up this guide. I do encounter some problems I wasn't able to solve myself so hope you guys can help me out a little. These are the specs I'm running. Intel Core i7-2630QM processor 2.00 GHz with Turbo Boost 2.0 up to 2.90 GHz 17.3in HD+ WLED True-Life (1600x900) with 2.0 Mega Pixel Integrated Camera 4GB (2X2GB) 1333MHz DDR3 Dual Channel 500GB Serial ATA (7200RPM) 8X DVD+/-RW Drive including software Primary 9-cell 90W/HR LI-ION 1GB NVIDIA GeForce GT 550M Graphics Card European Intel Centrino Wireless-N 1000 Internal US/International Qwerty Keyboard Bios is running A12 I burned iAtkos to a DVD and tried to install it to my laptop. I burned the dmg file with TransMac because PowerISO wasn't able to convert the dmg file to an iso file. I did checked the md5 sum of the dmg to check if the dmg wasn't corrupt and I doubt that the dmg is corrupt since the installation on a VirtualBox goes flawless. Once I finish the installation I can't boot into OSX or Windows. Windows and OSX where installed on 2 different partiotions, I split my harddrive in 2 equal partitions. OSX just freezes after a while on the Apple loading screen when I try to boot with the kernel flags and Windows says that the MBR is missing. Trying to restore the MBR with a recovery disk wasn't succesfull. I then made a BackTrack 5 bootable USB stick trying to do the copy/paste/delete stuff in Linux but when I access the OSX partion it is all read only. I found on Google that it is because I formatted OS X Extended Journaled. I have to disable Journaling before Linux being able to write to it but is there a way to disable this without booting into OSX first? I also tried to make a bootable USB stick with iAtkos in VirtualBox but when I format my USB stick to OSX filesystem OSX crashes and I have to reboot it and format my USB stick in Windows before Windows or OSX is able to reconize it again. Last night I went to a friend who is running iAtkos 7 on a laptop trying to make a bootable USB stick but Chameleon v2.1 wasn't able to install on it. I hope somebody can point me in the right direction
