  1. Hello, my name is Joe. Im having a lot of trouble with iAtkos ML2. My first problem was installing to my computer for the first time. I took me a litte over 30 trys using bootflags to finally get to the installation screen. I entered a bunch of bootflags that I can't remember. I entered -v to see what line of text it stopped at and it stopped at "BootCacheControl: can't open var/db/BootCache.playlist: 2 No such file or directory" On my last attempt I entered a boot flag which I can't remember what it was but it finally got me to the installation setup. I set up everything how I want and installed and restarted when finished. When it booted back into iAtkos everything was running pretty good. I decided to install Kexts. I used [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url], but I can't remember which Kexts I used but I dont think they were not correct. When I rebooted, it went to the Apple logo then 3 seconds after a grey screen dropped from the top to the bottom then displayed a messaging saying that I need to restart my computer. The message was displayed in about 5 other languages too. No matter how many times I restarted it did the same thing. So I reformatted my hard drive that iAtkos was on so I could install it fresh again. The problem now is that it won't boot to the installation screen. It stops on line "BootCacheControl: Can't open var/db/BootCache.playlist: 2 No such file or directory", Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  2. Hello, If someone can help me, i will be very happy. First sorry for my bad English. I Have a problem with a Gateway NV59-MS2288, i have installed iAtkos ML2, First, the setup runs very good, but next of the installation, he don´t run the OS. Specs: Intel Core i3 2.2Ghz RAM 4GB 640GB HDD I have run it with flags like -x -v -f, with UseKernelCache=No -v, GraphicsEnabler=No -v and npci=0x3000, but it does´t start. Can anyone Help me?
  3. Hey thanks for looking at my post! As the family tech support guy, I inherited a non-functional Gateway laptop from my mom to play around with. Long story short, I pulled a bad stick of Ram out and VOILA! it works. So I decided what the heck? Let's try to make this work on OSX... I'm writing this here for a couple of reasons: 1. If it helps someone else along the way fantastic 2. There are some things that are still not working and if I could get some advice I'd appreciate it. I didn't really know what I was doing the first few times I installed so I'm going to just start at my most recent install (when I had really started to figure stuff out) I used the iDeneb1.6 dvd to load OSX 10.5.8 on a partition of the 250gb hdd, based on the T-1625 tutorial in the wiki. Kernel: Voodoo Drivers/Fixes/etc: OldApplePS2 (tried w/o and trackpad didn't work), AppleATIATA, AppleDecrypt, Disabler, IONetworkingFamily, RTL8187b, OpenHaltRestart, Seatbelt What works: Trackpad/keyboard Wired ethernet Expose (I've missed this so much being on windows for the last two years!) Edit: Wifi I used to use a PBG4 on Tiger back in the day. But it's pretty much obsolete now. I say that because I know my way around the basics of OSX to some extent. Some of the stuff I'm working on is more essential (wifi) but some is just because I liked using those features (trackpad stuff, etc): Sound (from my understanding it won't because of my ATI Radeon x1270 board) Resolution changing (same reason) Wifi (I thought that installing the RTL8187b would fix this but apparently not?) Scrolling/Clicking with trackpad (not essential but would be convenient) Webcam (recognized correctly in system so I'm going to look into the proper kext for that) If anybody has suggestions or questions they are always welcome. My biggest issue is wifi. I have an ethernet cord for the house but really isn't a laptop kinda pointless without wifi anymore? I'll update this as I get it more functional. If I can finish it to be as functional as I want I'll post in tutorial. Edit: used ethernet to go find correct kext for wifi. It works but the only problem is the Realtek client doesn't work for WPA enterprise so I can't use the wifi at school. Oh well I can learn to live with that. I was able to change the resolution with some kext I found searching through the forums, but it made my cursor a large square so I just went into the boot.plist and edited it manually to a static resolution.

    Gateway FX7026

    Hello, this is a simple tutorial on how to install OS X Mountain Lion and/or OS X Mavericks on a Gateway FX 7026 using a USB/flashdrive. 1. Using a friends Mac, or using OS X in VMware, download myhack from the internet. Download the Mountain Lion.dmg or Mavericks.dmg file from the Mac App Store or anywhere you can get it that is safe trustworthy source. Using myhack is probably the easiest way and is pretty self explanatory. 2. Once you get Mountain Lion/Mavericks installed on your USB using myhack. You'll want to reboot and then go to your bios. In the bios you'll want to change a few options. Change your hard drives to AHCI, set the usb as first boot, and turn HPET 64-bit mode on. If your computer bios does not have an option to turn HPET 64-bit mode on but it has an option to turn on HPET, turn that on because its basically the same thing. 3. Save the changes you made in the bios and reboot with USB plugged in. You should see the Chameleon boot loader. From there you'll want to choose OS X. (If the computer does not boot to the USB first, you might need to manually boot to the USB by pressing either F2, F10, F12, DEL, etc. Options vary from computer to computer.) Booting to OS X may take a long time. It can take up to 15-20 minutes so be patient. Once your in the OS X installation process, just follow the install screen. When it gives you an option to choose the hard drive where you'll install OS X, you will see that there is no option to choose any of the hard drives. This is because your HD's (hard drives) are not formatted correctly for OS X. You'll want to click on the Utilities menu at the top of the screen and choose Disk Utility. In Disk Utility, you'll need to either partition or format the HD. Either way, you'll need to make sure the hard drive is formatted under Mac OS Extended (Journaled). Once your done with this, quit Disk Utility and then finish up the installation. When its done you will need to restart. But this time, instead of booting to the OS X installation, you'll need to boot to the new HD/partition OS X was just installed on. Once your booted into OS X, you'll need to finish up the install process such as choosing main language, setting up iCloud accounts, getting wifi working, etc. 4. When your all done with the install process, you'll see the home screen of OS X. But were not done yet, some users might face a problem where they cannot boot to OS X without using the USB installer they made. So try and see if yours works or not. Just reboot without the USB and see if OS X appears when you boot the computer without the USB. If it does not, then just plug the USB back in, boot to OS X using that, and then go on to step 5. 5. To get the boot loader installed so you can boot to OS X without the USB. You'll need to install a boot loader such as Chameleon or Clover. I recommend Chameleon for first time users because it is a easier to get working. What you'll need to do is go online and download the newest version of Chameleon and install it. Installing the Chameleon boot loader is not complicated. Once you download the Chameleon boot loader, it will download as a dmg file. Just double click the dmg file and follow the install steps. Self explanatory. Pretty simple, huh?
  6. I am noticing that their exists a few Gateway machines in the compatibility list. Has anyone had any success with the machine in my title or any other machine with the Intel N2600 CPU and GMA 3600 graphics set? Thank you
