  1. Hi. Just got myself a Dell Inspiron One 2310 recently. I wanna install snow leopard on it but I am not sure which distribution (iAtkos, chameleon etc) of snow leopard i should use. Should i alter the BIOS if neccessary? How do I go about install snow leopard? Which options and drivers do i select at installation. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

  2. Hi all. I just installed Snow Leopard using iAtkos S3 yesterday. Everything seems to be working fine with the exception of the sound and wireless adapter for my computer. There is sound coming out from my speakers its just that there is very strong static when the speakers are turned on (and yes, my speakers are working perfectly fine). And as for the wireless adapter, Snow Leopard doesn't even recognize its there. I think I chose the wrong drivers during installation. Are there any drivers I can download to solve this problems or is it something to do with the options I chose during installation? Any help would be greatly appreciated. My System specs: Processor: Intel Core 2 Quad Q6700 @ 2.66HGz RAM: 2GB DDR2 Ram Graphic Card: NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GS Motherboard: BIOSTAR Group G31-M7 TE Modems: Motorola SM56 Speakerphone Modem Network Adapters: Realtek 8185 Extensible 802.11b/g Wireless Device Realtek RTL8102E/RTL8103E Family PCI-E Fast Ethernet NIC (NDIS 6.20) Sound: High Definition Audio Device Unimodem Half-Duplex Audio Device

    Hey! I have read through the thread. Does my BIOS settings have anything to do with the error in booting the iAtkos v4i disc? Thanks in advance.

    Hey! Thanks for the reply! The thing is... I cannot even boot into the iAtkos v4i disc so I cannot choose anything from the custom install menu as I cannot even get to the custom install menu. Any ideas why I get that error when I try to boot from the iAtkos v4i disc? And how can I check my SATA chipset from Windows Vista? Thanks!

  11. iAtkos v4i

    Hi. I have been trying to install iAtkos v4i on my PC for a few days now but had no success with it. Everytime I boot my PC with the disc, I get to Darwin bootloader and I type in: -v and I get this error: MAC Framework successfully initialized using 10485 buffer headers and 4096 cluster IO buffer headers Extention "com.apple.driver.ACPI_SMC_PlatformPlugin" has immediate dependencies... ... ... components; use only one style That is as far as I get to. I cannot even boot into the disk and use Disc Ultility and such. So I was just wondering if any of you guys here have encountered the same problem that I have and offer me a little help? I am dying to get Leopard on my PC. Saving up for a real Mac though... Here's my PC specs: Acer M5640 Intel Core 2 Quad CPU Q6700 @ 2.66GHz 2.67GHz 2046MB RAM NVIDIA GeForce 8600GS (1264MB) Realtek High Definition Audio BIOS Date: 04/16/08 Ver: 08.00.15 Thanks!
