  1. [i5 3570k] iAtkos L2 Black Screen

    Oh, alright. Thanks!
  2. I have tried the latest Chameleon Build, and I've tried rBoot. But each time no matter what flags I use iAtkos loads all of the HFS files very slowly and then when it says "Starting Darwin x86" the screen just goes black/blank. Specs: i5 3570k AsRock Z77 Pro 4 4GB DDR3 1333 10600 Ram EVGA GTX 560 SuperClocked Realtek ALC892 Realtek 8111E Boot flags I've tried: -v -v -x -v -x cpus=1 busratio=20 -v cpus=1 busratio=20 -v arch=i386 -legacy If someone could PLEASE help me get to the installer, it would be much appreciated!
  3. Reboot at "Starting Darwin x86"

    Update: When I try booting with the iATKOS L2 Temporary Boot Loader I am able to boot up untill BSD root: disk0s5, major 14, minor 3 Update #2: Booting with -v -x or -v -x -f will allow me to get one line further but then it freezes at USBMSC: (non-unique) Identifier
  4. Reboot at "Starting Darwin x86"

  5. Hey all, With the recent release of the experimental Lion Kernel for AMD Processors. I decided to give it a go, so I booted up Windows, opened Disk Manager and created a 230GB Partition for my OS X Lion install, and then a 30GB Partition for my Mac OS X Snow Leopard install(Required to install OS X Lion). Once that job was completed I then downloaded Hazard OSX(10.6.2) for AMD Machines. Then I downloaded iAtkos L2. Once they were finished downloading I then burned Hazard OSX to a 4.7GB DVD+R Disk at 2.4x While it burned I also transferred iAtkos L2 onto one of the two 8GB USB Flash drives I have. Then once they were both done burning/copying I decided to download the Kexts I needed for Snow Leopard, since I had Snow Leopard Installed previously I knew exactly which Kexts were required. But for Lion I had to do a bit of "Kext Hunting", if you will. After that, I finally took a deep breath and rebooted. The Hazard install went perfect. Very smooth. I installed my Kexts and what not, Rebooted and I had a running Snow Leopard Partition. From this point I then followed this Guide: [AMD] 10.7.3 Guide - Experimental (Written by Devout) I opened the OSInstall Package, and proceeded through the install, I selected my OS X Lion Partition and was very careful to not over-write my Snow Leopard partition. The install took from around 10-20 Minutes. I can't remember. Once the install was done... I replaced the mach_kernel in my OS X Lion root with this AMD Lion Kernel: [AMD] Lion Kernel (V4) Once done, I rebooted I was presented with Chameleon and I then did a regular boot. This is where my problems began because almost instantly after I booted my OS X Lion partition my Computer Rebooted, and then this just led to a constant reboot loop if I selected my Lion Partition. This peaked my interest as I have never been presented with such a situation. So I booted -v (Verbose Mode) to see what was going on. But I couldn't, the kexts were being loaded way to fast for any human-being to comprehend what was being out-putted onto my screen. I then assumed that this was a Graphics Problem. So I first tried switching video outputs from DVI to VGA. And still, the same thing. Then I decided to switch to my onboard graphics. This time, the kexts were being loaded much slower to the point I was actually able to read them. But what really surprised me was the fact that Lion loaded all the way up to... "Starting Darwin x86" I was baffled at this point, and out of ideas. I tried many different boot flags and to no avail. So InsanelyMac Community, I look to you for the answer to this! My Hardware: HP P6610F AMD Athlon II X4 635 Onboard-Graphics: AMD RadeonHD 4200 Dedicated Graphics Card: Zotac 8400GS 512mb Motherboard Chipset: AMD 785g Motherboard Brand: Foxconn Motherboard Model: N/A(Unknown) Audio: ALC888s-VD(Onboard) Ethernet: Realtek RTL8105E 4gb DDR3 Ram Thank you very much, InsanelyMac. Any help is much appreciated!
  6. Hey all recently I purchased an Zotac 8400GS 512mb DDR3 as reccomemded on this thread: viewtopic.php?f=22&t=44820 Installed snow leopard then updated to 10.6.3 combo update. This is on an and system btw. Got sound + Ethernet working then I shut down and popped in my video card(8400GS) I get all the way up to the grey apple logo it starts to spin then my pc restarts after about 20-3 sec Of the spinner. So then I took out the video card and used my inboard and everything was fine. What should I do?
  7. So currently I have about $400 USD Saved up... This summer I plan to get a small part time job which I am hoping will rack up about another $200 Anyways... I plan to build a Hackintosh considering I can't really pull 1k+ out of my as* for a iMac. For installation I want to be able to use TonyMac's [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] & a Standard Snow Leopard disc. Soo, I was thinking of this build(Scroll down to see Hardware list) : http://lifehacker.com/5672051/how-to-build...ight-easy-steps Would that build be fully compatible with the latest Snow Leopard? Possibly even Lion? Would an Intel i5 3.1 Ghz Quad Core (Sandy Bridge) be compatible? I would like to get rid of that i7 EDIT 1: If you "Guru's" have any better reccomendations could you please link parts that are listed on either Newegg or Tiger Direct?
