Iatkos S3 on Dell Inspiron 1525 or L2...Help? Please?

Hi Guys,


I have an old Dell Inspiron 1525 that I'd like to Hackintosh, and right now I have Iatkos S3 installed, however, I get a black screen on start up, and from what I gather it's going into a sleep mode. My issue is that I don't have a good battery so the sleep trick doesn't work for me. zCan anyone provide suggestions?


Also, I'd much rather have L2 on it so I can use the App Store. Are there any good step by step tutorial's out there to maybe dumb it down some?


Thanks guys,
