Trying to upgrade from iAtkos s3 v2 10.6.7 to Lion via Lion App

Recommended Posts

I installed iAtkos s3 v2 on my Dell Vostro 1014 machine

 

After that I did an upgrade and now running version 10.6.7

 

I copied the Install Lion App in the Application folder but when I run it, it says cannot run with this verion of Mac OSX

 

But then Lion's requirement is 10.6+ OS

 

 

Can it be because am running i386 version of Mac OSX?

You can't just run the installer app, if it was that easy there'd be no "hack" in hackintosh. You need a valid smbios and will need to make an installer. Suggest you do some reading and check out a few of the installation guides. Lots of reading..

 

Lion requires 10.6.7+ to download from app store, that has nothing to do with your problem

 

 

P.S, Snow leopard is capable of running either 32bit kernel (i386) or 64bit kernel (x86_64) from the same base OS installation

      Ciao a tutti,
      sono felicemente riuscito a installare Lion sul mio Optiplex 330.
      Funziona tutto tranne la scheda audio interna ma non importa perché vorrei installare una USB esterna: una Yamaha AG03.
      Dalle istruzioni questa dovrebbe essere installata su Lion senza driver e riconosciuta subito (http://www.yamahaproaudio.com/global/en/products/mixers/ag/manual/mac/index_en.jsp).
      Su un altro hackintosh sempre con Lion viene riconoscita perfettamente.
      Il sistema la vede, nel System Report, correttamente collegata all'USB ma da Audio Midi Setup mi dice "NO DEVICES FOUND".
      Temo che mi manchi qualche parte software per far riconoscere la scheda esterna.
      Ho installato i VoodooHDA ma mi hanno mandato in crash il sistema quindi li ho rimossi.
      Avete consigli?
      Grazie mille

      Hey guys
       
      Here is my little guide to install OSX 10.6.8 on the EeePC 1000H.
       
      I'll quote some of the CicciMTS and scenemusic topics, thank you guys.
       
      What is needed ?
       
      A Asus EeePC 1000H
      A 8GB or more USB Pen drive
      An empty hard disk drive
      An other mac or hackintosh
      A USB mouse
      My package of tools, including the latest Apple OS X 10.6.8 Combo update
       
      Restore and Boot from USB
       
      On your mac/hack, go to Disk Utility, find your USB Pen drive, erase it with GUID Partion Table and Mac Extended Format (journaled). Then, restore your iAtkos image on your USB pen drive.
       
      Next, you need to make your USB drive Bootable. Find Chameleon in the tools Folder, open it and install it on your new Snow Leopard USB pen drive.
       
       
      Installation
       
      Boot into BIOS, if available, set the SATA mode to AHCI. If you can't it should work too so don't worry
      Select your USB Pen Drive and boot on it. Chameleon will appear, select your iAtkos install drive, and type -v to boot in verbose mode. After a moment, the OSX installer should appear. Trackpad will not work so plug in a usb mouse. Select your language and click next. on the top of the screen, find disk utilty, and erase your HDD with GUID Partion Table and Mac Extended Format (journaled) options, and close Disk Utility. Click Next until the installer ask you on which drive you want to install OSX. Do not install it yet, click on Customize. Select the following options :
       
      -BOOT
      ASEREBLN

      -BOOT OPTIONS
      32BITS
      GRAPHICS ENABLERS
      ETHERNET BUILTIN
      USB (all)

      -PATCHES
      CREAR EXTRA
      FAKESMC
      DISABLER
      RTC
      KERNEL ATOM
      EVOREBOOT
      SLEEPENABLER
      UUID

      -DRIVERS SATA-IDE
      SATA/AHCI or INTEL SATA/IDE if you didn't enable AHCI in your bios

      -SOUND
      VOODOHDA

      -PS2
      VOODOOPS2 or APPLEPS2

      -POWERMANAGER
      VOODOPOWER

      -LAPTOP HARD
      BATTERY
      CARD READER
      THERMAL ACPI

      -VGA
      INTEL
      EFI STRING
      GMA950 (all)

      -WIFI
      Ralink RT2860

      -WIRED
      ATLANSIC L1E
       
      Click OK and install OSX on your HDD.
       
       
      First Boot and update to 10.6.8
       
      Remove your USB stick from your computer, Chameleon should appear, boot your new OSX installation with -v boot flag. Once you've created your account you should be on your desketop.
      Run the Combo Update installer but do not reboot!! Force Quit out of the installer (hold down the Option key and click and hold over the Installer icon in the Dock. Select Force Quit) and Run the Legacy Kernel installer and then reboot the machine.
      now you should see that your graphics driver doesn't work anymore. Run Kext Utility and let it repair the permissions and update the cache. when it says "all done" drag and drop all the graphics kext into kext utility, and when it says "all done", reboot your computer. Cross your fingers and reboot your computer. You should now have a fully working EeePC 1000H, with graphics, sound, wifi, USB, bluetooth and Ethernet Working with the lastest Snow Leopard update. You can have the latest security updates on your system with Software Update, it will not damage your installation.
       
      Sorry for my bad english, I'm french. Fell free to ask questions if you need, thank you guys

      I know the machine and OS X version is old, but its the machine I have and I want to know if I can install iATKOS S3 V2 on the machine?
      My specs are:
       
      A-Bit AG8 (not to be confused with the A-Bit AG8-V)
      2 GB DDR400 RAM (An additional 2GB of DDR400 RAM will be installed soon)
      Intel Pentium 4 3.2GHz (OC to 3.52GHz)
      EVGA GTX 260
      TP-Link TL-WDN4800
      SoundBlaster SB0507
      WDC Blue 1TB
      (A soon to be installed IDE DVD player)
      (A soon to be installed USB 3.0 PCIe card)
       
      System has Windows 8.1 installed and I plan on dual booting (maybe triple boot with linux)
       
      Currently my problem is that I am having issues getting the installer to start, I have used the following flags:
      -v /arch=i386
      -v /arch=i386 /legacy
      -v /arch=i386 /legacy /graphicsenabler=yes
      all have the same result: a reboot just before the apple logo would normally show up, after all the kexts are loaded by chameleon, the system will just reboot. What do I need to do?

      Hello everyone,
       
      I'm new to this forum, I'm really searching for some help with my "project" and hope some of you can help me out with this one!
       
      It's all coming down to a not starting "Finder"
       
       
      The full story,
       
      I bought a Mac Pro 1.1 (2006) a few day's ago. All stock, dual Intel Xeon 3Ghz, 5GB Ram and the stock video card (256MB). (Lion freshley installed)
       
      I wanted to upgrade to OSX El Capitain, and after a lot of research and a lot... yes a lot of trouble in making it all work I finally got it. I've thrown in a Geforce GTX 760 2GB Jetstream... couldn't wait to get cables for powering it, so I frankensteind it all with a second PSU. Installed Lion on a Samsung 850 EVO, and then followd a tutorial on how to install el capitain using Piker's boot. 
       
      After 12 hours non stop messin around it worked, only after some time the mac froze and rebooted. I noticed that maby Google Chrome caused this to happen, and when using Safari it would work without any problem. I even can play 4K flawless.
      But still after some time it would crash, I monitored the CPU and Ram Usage, but there wasn't anything crazy happening at those things.
       
      .. didn't really got the time to instal other apps. Then I found out Finder wasn't responding. It kept on crashing. I tried a lot of things... deleting the plist files, resetting PRAM, VRAM, Savebooting, deleting cache, Disk repair (Disk Aid)... nothing worked.
       
      Is this maby a problem with the bootloader (Pike)?
       
      I hope someone can help me out!
       
      Thanks in advance,
      Greetings from Holland

      Hey, so I just installed Sierra using the iAtkos SR and everything works except my Graphics... It shows that I have only 5MB Video memory.. My card is AMD Radeon R9 270.
       
      Tried different stuff when installing, like different framebuffers like Hamachi, Futomaki, Dayman, but nothing seems to be working. Tried installing extra stuff with a "AMD Radeon GPU Injector Tool" but nothing worked.
      The weird thing is, everything worked flawlessly on Yosemite. I even updated without problems via the AppStore, and I never did anything special for my graphics back then as far as I remember. I was running a pretty stable hackintosh on Yosemite (It was iAtkos too), but wanted to upgrade.
       
      Has someone with the same graphics card encountered this issue, and fixed it?
       
      Thank you in advance!
