  1. Lion post-installation issue

    Thanks for the help. This is the SS with my skge.text And this the screenshot when i tried wit another kext i found on the net Btw deleting the kext all together allowed me to get in but i have no net after that..And that happened only once....after that kernel panics again with finder error
  2. Hi, Everything was working fine on my mac untill yesterday when Finder was having some problems. I opened a folder and it was lagging a bit. Then when i shutdown the mac it looked as if the folder that i opened before was crashing..I couldnt close it so i force quit Finder...Then today i started it and gave me kernel panic. I can get in in safe mode but thats it. This is the error it gives me. After that i booted with -x -v and from then on i would see this error: Please advise on how to proceed. ps: Using iatkos Lion v2
  3. Hi, I currently have a 10.6.8 system with a ATI 5770 card on it and it works perfectly. I am planning to get them nVidia GeForce GTX 570 Twin Frozr II PE OC card though. I dont want to install Lion on my hackintosh. So will i be able to continue using my current version with it ? I probably have to do some changes, i know, which i got no idea how or what to do exactly....but for starters, i just want to know if it can be done. Thanks.

    I am no expert but have you tried changing your boot plist to this ? <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple Computer//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>Graphics Mode</key> <string>1024x768x32@60</string> <key>Timeout</key> <string>0</string> <key>Kernel</key> <string>mach_kernel</string> <key>Kernel Flags</key> <string>"arch"="i386"</string> <key>GUI</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>Graphics Enabler</key> <string>No</string> </dict> </plist> Backup your original first

    Hi Jay, no i havent deleted the nvidia kext. i'll wipe them clean on the next boot. As for the chameleon...i selected chameleon rc4 when i installed the cd. I dont know why it didnt make the /extra file. I'll try with [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url]. A quick question about this though...i have installed the mac on a partitioned disk...i cut my mp3 HD in two and used 50gig from it for the mac...Will [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] screw up my boot ? Like throw the "select OS to boot from" that is see with the iatkos cd ? And another thing....lots of my apps just *hang* in the macos... like firefox or Xcode etc...couldnt it be cause of a faulty install ? or will the above fixes do the job ? I am reconsidering a wipe and re-install thats why i am asking. I never had these problems on the leopard 1.5.8...its just weird. Thanks again

    Hi Jas, Thanks for answering but unfortunately again i get the gray screen with "press the power to restart" page. I dont understand this. Unless i type : "Graphics Mode"="1680x1050x32" GraphicsEnabler=No my system wont boot. This is what i've done so far. 1) Installed iatkos S3 v2 2) Updated to 10.6.4 3) Added the kext files with kexthelper (using the custom ATY-init.kext with the 5770 edited inside) 4) Added a dvi2vga doggle on my cable and plugged my screen (i only got 1 screen and it uses VGA) 5) Put the iatkos cd inside and boot my pc.... 6) Press F8, and select my Mac HD. So far like i said i only get inside the mac when i type the above text. My com.apple.Boot.plist is now like the one you gave me : <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple Computer//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>Graphics Mode</key> <string>1680x1050x32@60</string> <key>Timeout</key> <string>0</string> <key>Kernel</key> <string>mach_kernel</string> <key>Kernel Flags</key> <string>"arch"="i386"</string> <key>GUI</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>Legacy Logo</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>Graphics Enabler</key> <string>No</string> </dict> </plist> Some people said its in their /Extras folder but i dont have it there. Mine is in Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/ folder. I know its not that of a big deal to type it every time...but if it can be sorted out easily i'd like to do it -thanks

    Every time i let my system boot by itself i am getting the default Hold the button to restart screen, but when i press F8 and then type : arch=i386 "Graphics Mode"="1680x1050x32" it starts normally How can i make it do that by default ? This is my com.apple.Boot.plist in Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple Computer//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>Kernel</key> <string>mach_kernel</string> <key>Kernel Flags</key> <string></string> <key>Boot Graphics</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>Quiet Boot</key> <string>No</string> <key>Timeout</key> <string>5</string> <key>Graphics Mode</key> <string>1680x1050x32</string> <key>GraphicsEnabler/key> <string>Yes</string> </dict> </plist> I have an ASUS 5770 1Gig graphics card and a P5B Premium motherboard. ps: I am a noob when it come to mac -thanks Edit: i managed to get it working once by setting GraphicsEnabler to No in the plist file but since then it wont even start with -v anymore. I an writing from my ipod touch now
  8. ATI HD 5770

    I am a total noob when it come to mac.Ok i can use it but this whole custom boot, edit this and that makes me feel like a 5 years old. I had the 8800gts and everything was working fine on my iatkos 7 hackintosh, untill my card blew up and i bought the Asus 5770 1gig. Since then i cant boot up my hackintosh. I was getting the round clock thingy to infinity. So my question is this: 1) I used Time machine to backup my stuff on an external hard disk. If i do a fresh install of iatkos s3 will i be able to restore my desktop files after from that backup? 2) Will i be able to run my (new) hackintosh with 1 VGA monitor ? I dont have 2 monitors and the one i have doesnt have a dvi plug. Thanks.
