iATKOS S3 asking for Keyboard after Install...

Recommended Posts

i installed snow leopard on my asus k52jc notebook with the iatkos s3 dvd but after the install, where i should set up my mac, it says, that there's no keyboard plugged in.

in fact it's a notebook, neither internat keyboard nor trackpad are working.

actually i got it working one time (but there was no folder with the apple.boot.plist), the other try i was able to get to snow leopard i wasn't able to start WITHOUT the iatkos dvd o.O

right now, everytime i am welcomed by the keyboard thing...


my specs:


Mobile Intel® HM55 Express Chipset

Intel® Core™ i3-350m


NVIDIA® GeForce® 310M, 1GB

500GB Seagate HDD, 7200 rpm

Gigabit Ethernet (i could download a LAN driver from the asus hp, but it's called "JMICRON LAN Driver")

Atheros WLAN (that's what Win7 said)

JMicron Multi CardReader


now what my install looked like:


first of all pressed f8 when the bootloader appeared and typed "busratio=20" to get it working.

install language: german

formatted my drive as GPT with only mc os extended, journaled


- asere bln bootloader

all bootloader options except usb-fixes, uuid & 32-bit boot


- patches: /Extra, fakesmc, disbaler, standart kernel (even tried qoopz 10.3 without disabler)


- driver: ahci sata, sound (all), laptop (all except acpi thermal)


- nvenabler


- atheros wireless


i tried adding some more options or choosing less (etc no graphics, no laptop ...) but result was either a instant reboot or the keyboard message after the mac os x welcome "movie".


what do i have to choose and what don't i ?

i tried the apple and the voodoo ps2 controller, both didn't work.


finally got my system working with hazard's dvd (was hard work) but their atheros fix doesn't work and i got neither ethernet nor wireless. i tried to install the atheros-fix from the iatkos s3 (it worked as i recognize) but as i did it i wasn't able to shut down or reboot.

right now i'm reinstalling from hazard's dvd but without their atheros fix, think i gonna do it from iatkos s3.


other idea for the wlan/ethernet ?


and what's the best option to get my graphics working ?


i use the graphicsenabler string in my bootloader and tried it with hazard's nvenabler as i found out through the search but frontrow didn't show anything but a black screen and the title bar is not transparent :(


any idea ? probably trying sth from kexts.com...
