Hey guys,

I am trying to build my hackintosh using iAtkos s3 version 2 and just cannot seem to be able to do it succesfully. All the while I was following this guide- http://goo.gl/zg6pe and even after changing some setting in my bios the installation would get stuck. It would get stuck on the first screen with the apple logo along with the loading icon and never go ahead. This has happened every single time! My pc specs-

is this before of after install. I installed iatkos l2 on HP 7700. I use the boot loader options because of bios (no ACHI) . took a couple times to select the proper boot items needed. Sata enable, PCI enabler and ect.

GUID is a must for duo core 2 and LION

Download and burn nawcom's mod cd to disc. Boot from it. Once its loaded eject the disc and swap it with your iAtkos disc and press F5. When the disc appears on screen type -v cpus=1 and press enter

Use a USB mouse just now. The screen doesn't matter as its just the setup. You need to format a drive to Mac journeled to install

is gparted the methog to format?

In the OS X installer open Disk Utility and format as Mac OS Extended (Journaled)

gparted is a disk utility for Linux

how will i open disk utility without installation?I cant find that option.

This is a video that shows the steps that you will need to take. The installation is a little different that what you will be doing, but the booting up, formatting the HD and basic installation are the same.
