For sucessful install iAtkos V7 in Dell Latitude D520

Recommended Posts

Hello guys. This tutorial I'm showing how i've got a sucessful installation of iAtkos v7 sucesfully in my dell latitude d520.

at least 1GB Memory(recommended 2GB)
50GB HD(recommended minimum)
Intel Pentium M higher
at least:)

iAtkos v7(duh)

The Holy Bible e-book and a cheap ebay.com rabbit feet(between $20 - $300-> A really good one)

Burned DVD of it or a pendrive with a least 4gb(and no, im not talking of putting the rabbit feet on a pendrive but iatkos v7)(how to boot from pendrive I will make another topic)(duh)


Put the DVD on the reader


Go to Utilities>Disk Utility

At this point I recommend in whichever OS your running, make a backup!

when you finished the backup, boot again with the dvd drive wit iAtkos v7.

again go to disk utility!

format one of your partition(or the whole disk) by going to the partition/disk and go to the tab erase. Very very important Note: This dis/partition MUST BE PRIMARY! NOT LOGICAL, NOT EXTENDED, BUT PRIMARY!!!
I the erase tab click on the scroll option and choose Mac OS Extended(Journaled)

click erase.

Ok, so now you have a PRIMARY partition/disk formatted as Mac OS Extended(Journaled).
As well close the disk utility and go back to te Mac OS Installer. Now you've gotta select the partition/disk that we formatted, go to next page.

Aha! Now here is the trick:


Click on custom

now select the following options(with the default still selected):

x86 Patches:.
-------------->9.5.0 Kernel Voodoo
------------>EFI string for Intel
------------>GMA 950
------------>GMA 950 Laptop(duh again)
--------------->Intel SATA/IDE
------------>PS/2 Mouse/Keyboard
-------------> Voodoo PS/2 Driver
------------>Laptop Battery
------------>ext2fs(IF YOU HAVE LINUX PARTITIONS)
--------->Network(mark all)
---------->Chinese(or any other unknown language for you, to learn new horizions :) )

AAAAAAAAAnd proceed.

when finished install(10-15 minutes depends on your processor speed and memory) you boot to chameleon and it will try to boot automatically to the partition you installed iatkos v7. You're almost there!Press any key, and it will come to you to select your mac os x disk select it DON'T PRESS ENTER YET! Type in:
-v -f busrate=10 cpus=1
and <enter>


Obs:. If you really liked Mac OS X c'mon, buy a Mac you nerd. happy 2018!
