  1. After applying the unlocker, why do I see these OS choices: Mac OS X 10.7 Mac OS X 10.7 64 Bit I obviously chose the first one, still I faced the error and the 'stop' sign later. Sorry to sound silly here, as I am newbie to this virtualization concept, but looking at these choices I was inclined to think 10.7.x is available in both 32 and 64-bit mode. Not really wishing to trouble you in your holidays. Have a great vacation :-) just in case when you find some free time, please elaborate.
  2. thanks Donk - btw, can you take a look at my vmx file (I edited my post sometime afterwards) - if that tells you something? And yes - I read your comment about free tech preview 2012 of vmware workstation, which I am downloading right now. Can you bit more elaborate how can I get this Lion thing working with it, just in case? Would I need any patches over it? I do not have retail dvd available to me in my area - hackintosh is a long way, and virtualization is my last resort as of now. So need as much detail as possible to get it working on my intel Core 2 duo, 2 gb ram dell config. Greatly appreciate your help... -vC vmx.txt
  3. After applying the latest unlocker + this thing. My laptop is intel core 2 duo T5270 (VT disabled). My host is Vista 32 bit. When I run 10.7.3 using VMWare Workstation 8.0.3 (already patched), I get to see however, following error: Software virtualization is incompatible with long mode on this platform. Disabling long mode. Without long mode support, the virtual machine will not be able to run 64 bit code. Later, OS refuses to boot - with a traffic 'Wrong side' sign - it remains for 1 min like that, and then powers off! I uninstalled + reinstalled + reapplied all the patches in required order, as depicted on ( http://www.sysprobs....ows-7-computer/) - but to no avail. (It seems I get past unlocker good - I can see Apple Mac OS X in OS options, but somehow can't get it to work right.) Need urgent help!!! Thanks in advance for reading me! -vC Oh, and here is my vmx file (due to some weird browser bug, can't get it as attachment): encoding = "windows-1252" config.version = "8" virtualHW.version = "8" scsi0.present = "TRUE" scsi0.virtualDev = "lsilogic" memsize = "1024" scsi0:0.present = "TRUE" scsi0:0.fileName = "Mac OS X Lion.vmdk" ide1:0.present = "TRUE" ide1:0.autodetect = "TRUE" ide1:0.deviceType = "cdrom-raw" floppy0.startConnected = "FALSE" floppy0.fileName = "" floppy0.autodetect = "TRUE" ethernet0.present = "TRUE" ethernet0.connectionType = "nat" ethernet0.virtualDev = "e1000" ethernet0.wakeOnPcktRcv = "FALSE" ethernet0.addressType = "generated" usb.present = "TRUE" ehci.present = "TRUE" sound.present = "TRUE" sound.virtualDev = "hdaudio" sound.fileName = "-1" sound.autodetect = "TRUE" pciBridge0.present = "TRUE" pciBridge4.present = "TRUE" pciBridge4.virtualDev = "pcieRootPort" pciBridge4.functions = "8" pciBridge5.present = "TRUE" pciBridge5.virtualDev = "pcieRootPort" pciBridge5.functions = "8" pciBridge6.present = "TRUE" pciBridge6.virtualDev = "pcieRootPort" pciBridge6.functions = "8" pciBridge7.present = "TRUE" pciBridge7.virtualDev = "pcieRootPort" pciBridge7.functions = "8" vmci0.present = "TRUE" smc.present = "TRUE" hpet0.present = "TRUE" ich7m.present = "TRUE" usb.vbluetooth.startConnected = "TRUE" firmware = "efi" displayName = "Mac OS X Lion" guestOS = "darwin11" nvram = "Mac OS X Lion.nvram" virtualHW.productCompatibility = "hosted" powerType.powerOff = "hard" powerType.powerOn = "hard" powerType.suspend = "hard" powerType.reset = "hard" extendedConfigFile = "Mac OS X Lion.vmxf" ethernet0.generatedAddress = "00:0c:29:35:9e:ad" vmci0.id = "196446353" uuid.location = "56 4d a1 08 33 3d 6d 5f-4b e7 fc 82 f7 35 9e ad" uuid.bios = "56 4d a1 08 33 3d 6d 5f-4b e7 fc 82 f7 35 9e ad" cleanShutdown = "TRUE" replay.supported = "FALSE" replay.filename = "" scsi0:0.redo = "" pciBridge0.pciSlotNumber = "17" pciBridge4.pciSlotNumber = "21" pciBridge5.pciSlotNumber = "22" pciBridge6.pciSlotNumber = "23" pciBridge7.pciSlotNumber = "24" scsi0.pciSlotNumber = "16" usb.pciSlotNumber = "32" ethernet0.pciSlotNumber = "33" sound.pciSlotNumber = "34" ehci.pciSlotNumber = "35" vmci0.pciSlotNumber = "36" usb:1.present = "TRUE" ethernet0.generatedAddressOffset = "0" tools.remindInstall = "TRUE" vmotion.checkpointFBSize = "33554432" usb:1.speed = "2" usb:1.deviceType = "hub" usb:1.port = "1" usb:1.parent = "-1" annotation = " Mac OS X Lion 10.7.3 VMware Image|0D|0A-------------------------------------------|0D|0ALatest image of Lion.

  5. Install iATKOS L2 on Dell Vostro Series

    Hi there! I am using this same dvd for my dell vostro 1500, however I keep getting hangs at any given place: - During boot (after entering boot flags) - During Disk Utility - Sometimes I am lucky to go past Disk Utility (after formatting my HDD and all) - and also go past Customize. But then during install it just freezes - most of the time during extracting the Base package. The time remaining shows > 8 minutes always when I get this freeze. i) I have used iatkos L2 dvd compressed dmg image, I tried expanded dmg image, even img image - but result doesn't differ much. ii) Already tried GraphicEnabler=No I really can't get what's the issue - anyone please help whai's wrong, appreciate your time reading this. thanks, -vividCode (Intel Core 2 Duo T5270, Intel Graphic 965 chipset)
  6. After I quit customize screen, I press Install. At this point or anytime after this, I get to see that mouse can't move, there is no HDD/DVD light blinking, neither the keyboard works. Even if I leave my PC for an hour, nothing happens. Freeze happens irrespective of customize options I choose (removed all except fakesmc), irrespective of dvd format I chose (img, dmg, expanded dmg) I am not able to get past '8 minutes remaining' - and till then it installs about 1.6 GB content on the formatted partition. And yes, my config is dell vostro 1500: Intel Core 2 duo, Integrated Intel 965 graphics, ms keyboard and synaptic mouse.
  7. I have iAtkos L2 dvd perfectly made to boot. However due to some weird media limitation - I fail to get past entire installation - it freezes at random points. (Most of the time, I get past disk utility. Also tried to remove all customizations except fakesmc and chameleon.) Now I suspect it is my dvd drive which is incapable of carrying it through, and I want to give my usb drive a try. However I don't have mac installed anywhere so don't know how to create bootable usb? Can I use my bootable dvd to create bootable usb using my target machine? [Note that this target machine is totally formatted with mac os journeled, but it has not gone past that ie installation freezes when 8 minutes are pending] If anyone knows how to create this usb, or even knows how to get rid of this freeze, will be great help, I am stuck with this since > 1 week and no progress. thanks for reading! -vC
  8. Iatkos L2 installation freeze

    I have this same problem on my Dell vostro 1500 (intel c2d, 965 graphics chipset) with iAtkos l2 - I successfully get past disk utility (create entire HDD single partition 120 gb - formatted with mac os x journeled) - I left all customizations to their default as I am doing clean install for the first time - Installation just hangs at '12 minutes remaining' or '11 minutes remaining' point. It installs some 3 files during this. [Note that I have never been able to install even once fully] I tried with different bootloader options. [-v with PCIrootid, cpus and so on] - but I am told by people it doesn't matter I have tried different dvd formats: dmg and img files But to no avail. Any ideas? I am tired of burning about dozen disks so far, so need something that will "really" get me past this! -vC
  9. I am curious to know more how you clone this dvd image (i have it in dmg format) to a usb drive. All I have is a windows xp machine to do operations. (I have a dell vostro 1500 harddrive formatted with mac os journeled partition, but dvd fails to proceed beyond that, so I can't install it there. For this purpose I need iATKOS L2 USB that will boot + install this OS on this harddrive. USB, since with DVD I don't have any success.) Thanks! -vC
  10. Interesting! I am trying to install iAtkos L2 on my dell vostro 1500 (intel core2duo, intel 965 graphics card) and facing dvd hang issues even during install. So far I managed to format the HDD, but then screen freeze blocked me. Any idea about it? In any case, which dvd image format did you use, and how did you burn it? Thanks! -vC
  11. OK, I got around keyboard/mouse hang by rebooting to my original windows vista OS for once, and it went ahead smoothly then on. I went past Disk utility. I successfully formatted the entire disk drive. Closed Disk util. Pressed Next. Skipped customizations. The next screens told me it will take 12 minutes to install Lion. First 2 minutes, mouse, DVD and were active. Then everything went frozen again. I rebooted, re-erased everything again, came back to same screen. Its been more than 20 minutes, I see no activity. I searched online, but never found anyone facing hang/freeze on this screen. Anyone has clues? Is there a way I can get verbose for this issue? Thanks for everyone's time! -vC
  12. OK, I have made some progress on this one, here is the summary: 1) Got iAtkos L2 dvd burnt 2) Started installing using the same. I have reached past language selection screen (selected english and press next). Afterwards, I faced a blank white screen with background image of 'install Mac x'. It has 2 buttons: continue and back. However I cannot use keyboard or mouse - and cannot proceed to disk utility (as I assume will be the next step). [Meanwhile, before language selection screen, the I saw this error (since I have booted with -v): "BootCacheControl : Unable to open /var/db/BootCache.playlist: 2 No such file or directory Bug: launchctl.c:2408 (24957):30: (dbfd = open(g_job_overrides_db_path, 0_RDONLY | 0_EXLOCK | 0_CREAT, S_IRUSR | S_IWUSR)) l= -1 But somehow it went past this, so I assumed everything is fine.] Should I use any additional boot flags? Mine is a standard ps/2 pointing device and standard microsoft ps/2 keyboard - came as part of dell vostro 1500 configuration. (From Unknown Devices tool): Mouse: * Windows Description - Synaptics PS/2 Port Pointing Device * Hardware ID - PNP0F13 * Device Category (Class) - Mice and other pointing devices * Enumerator - ACPI Keyboard: * Windows Description - Standard 101/102-Key or Microsoft Natural PS/2 Keyboard * Hardware ID - PNP0303 * Device Category (Class) - Keyboards * Enumerator - ACPI Please help!
  13. How do you make an iAtkos L2 bootable DVD?

    OK - here is the last progress: I successfully wrote iAtkos L2 dmg file (unexpanded) to a dvd media. Changed Boot sequence to start from dvd. Booted using this DVD. Installation is frozen at Apple logo screen - wait cursor has stopped moving. DVD drive has stopped blinking too. I saw some bootloader commands (http://www.osx86.net/10-7-lion/16399-iatkos-l2-stuck-apple-logo-screen.html) that can help troubleshoot but I don't know how and when to launch them. Any help? -
  14. How do you make an iAtkos L2 bootable DVD?

    I already wrote a DVD just for trying sake using transmac - expanded the dmg image and then burned. It finished successfully, but I see only 800 kb used space on my disk under windows property box. Will this be usable bootable for Lion? @LionM - thanks - if all else fails I will try that path.
  15. How do you make an iAtkos L2 bootable DVD?

    I have downloaded transmac to burn iATKOS L2 DVD from my vista PC. I am seeing various posts online and I see many people face issues. I am confused about: 1) Should I expand the dmg file? If yes, it will increase in size, right? The current size is 4.35 GB. So I would probably need 8 GB of DVD? 2) Any specific options I need to select in transmac to get it right? 3) Do I also have to write the checksum (md5) file to the dvd in order for it to work? If anyone has tried it successfully please write the steps involved. Or would it be good to convert to iso first, then burn using my favorite windows dvd writer? Thanks for your time, -vividcode
