It worked, now it refuses to.

Recommended Posts

Hello all,


I have been reading this resource so much and it has been so helpful in getting my OSx86 setup going.


Now, I have a problem. I recently changed from a Toshiba P300-150 to P300-19P.





On the 150 iAtoks v7 worked. I could get it installed after some trial and error but it would work consistently when I needed to install it.

With the 19P I got it working to a familiar stage which was that the display looked more like static from an old TV set. Then I got it working on the next reinstall. So far it was just like the old 150, a bit of trial and error.


At some point during these installations I realised that I had installed on a logical partition so I had to F8 the CD and rd=disk#s# to get it booted.

Then I reinstalled again on an active partition and it has never worked. I have gone between the old partition I used and the new active one so many times but it refuses to work now for some reason.


When I say it does not work:

Installation is fine

Reboot is fine (when on active partition)

But all I get is the Apple logo and the stop sign which I think is Kernal Panic?

I did a -v boot and it stopped at the Firewire not being able to find device memory or something similar. I believe my FW device is an O2 micro of some sort. Win7 doesnt name it. ven_1217 any use?


I just can not figure out why I can not get it installed again.


I was hoping that some guys here could take a look at the above system specs for the 19P and say what I need to select?


I have been days at this. Very frustrating. For my needs I could have lived with the F8 rd=disk#s# method.


I must be one setting in the installation. My BIOS has only has "Compatibility" and "AHCI" as options in a setting. That is the only relavant thing in my BIOS





For the record:

iAtkos S3 fails outright from the DVD. I get a Mac version of blue scree.

iAtkos L2 does not boot into installation from DVD. All I get is the apple logo.


I will get this topic posted now but if the system specs arent enough I will post whats needed up.




Many thanks,

    • Hello! how are you? Friends, I would be very grateful if you could share with me the complete EFI, with what tool do you create the bootable USB? or direct by console + clover v2? I have 2 motherboards of you and I would like to rescue them installing High Sierra.   Hw:
      Xeon E5450
      8GB DDR3
      Nvidia GT710 1GB   I have several new Hackintosh (UEFI), but old (Legacy) I have not been able to lift the installer, so I took from here, the BIOS + Files indications, I see the apple and the progress bar, but from there it does not move . Thank you!
    • Ok, the original ROM of the R9 280X should work as is without any kind of flash, that means it will work Out Of the Box, but you'll still have some ports not working, usually 1 or 2 ports! Now if you flashed your card with a modded ROM for OS X, it means, that the modded ROM will work for real Macs, like a Mac Pro 5,1 for exemple, but if it's what you did for your card, it will explain the freezes that you have, because that rom emulate EFI rom of the real Mac AMD cards. But in the case you just flashed a ROM that you downloaded from techpowerup for exemple,  it should work without any freeze if that rom is the propper one for your card!
