iatkos l2 installation issue

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

HI friends this is my first post here. I have read many guides about getting osx installed in a PC. But i have a very bizarre issue.

 

My PC ( very old one )

System Manufacturer: HP-Pavilion
System Model: GS166AA-ACJ a6230in
BIOS: Phoenix - AwardBIOS v6.00PG
Processor: Intel® Pentium® Dual  CPU  E2140  @ 1.60GHz (2 CPUs), ~1.6GHz
Memory: 2560MB RAM
MOBO : asus p5lp-le.
 
The updates i made on my pc were -
 
1) RAM - increased from 1 GB to 2.5 GB. 
2) GPU - Asus ENGTS450/DI/1GDDR5 ( earlier it was onboard intel 945G )
 
I have earlier installed  Snow Leopard, but couldnt figure out Ethernet, audio etc ( some basic ), I used without internet for sometime again went to windows.
 
My problem--- Before upgrading the GPU to ENGTS 450 i was able to do installation with distros and SL org copy.
                       But now i again i wanted to install LIon, so i wanted to check iatkos l2, 
 
                       If installation was a failure- i would have been satisfied but i can't even get to the installation screen, i downloaded iatkos l2 and i changed the bios setting to SATA controller to AHCI , that is the only change i can do with my stupid MOBO.
 
What i am getting is that 
 
cd boot init
Cd..sectors verifying ( sorry i couldn't even note it down, it goes very fast 2 or 3 seconds ) 
.........
.........
 
again pc restarts and the same process is looping over and over,  
 
I have tried Niresh lion too , but with same result.......the cd boot thing is looping again and again.  I have tried 4 different DVD brands, various Burn speed x2,x4......20-25 DVD's but no use i couldn't get past the looping sequence.
.
 
Dont consider me a troll, its just a kind request if anybody could help me ( not to install osx) atleast i could learn what the problem is ?

      So. My laptop: Asus k55a I installed Mac OS X on the pendrive and now when I turn on the laptop and clicking esc bios it does not detect it. And now I have a question for you what settings I should set up to make everything good

      I have: Intel Core i7 7700K 4.2 Ghz Gigabyte GA-Z270MX/Gaming 5 Samsung CF791 Series 34-Inch Curved Widescreen Monitor (C34F791)  3440x1440 4K Samsung U28E590D 28-Inch UHD LED-Lit Monitor with Freesync support  3840x2160 4K XFX AMD Radeon™ RX 580 8GB 256 Bit GDDR5 Graphics Card   Both monitors are hooked up through Display Port Sierra works fine and I get full 4K off both monitors and everything works. However.... With High Sierra I can only boot into High Sierra with 1 of the monitors turned on. Whenever I turn on the 2 monitor everything freezes within High Sierra and screen goes gray. I can still see the desktop but can't click on anything.    Anybody know what I can do to get both monitors working fully in 4K?    Some Success ------------- After 2 days of constant testing with no luck. I think the problem has something to do with the AMD .kexts in S/L/E. When I copied the AMD .kexts from Sierra to High Sierra I got weird colors (red & blues flipped) and the 2nd monitor will go on and not lock up the computer   Even though the method of copying kexts somewhat worked... It made the graphics choppy and everything was running slow (open windows and programs).   Is there a FakeID (FB Name, NVCAP,  VRAM, Video Ports, Display-cfg, ig-platform-id, BootDisplay) of some sort I can use in Clover to fix this? Kext?     My clover config is attached if that helps anybody!
      Also...
      The 2 pictures attached are what happens. Boots with 1 monitor on. As soon as the 2nd monitor is turned on or plugged in... The working monitor goes black and everything stops responding. config.plist.zip

      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'm not able to get hotkeys working correctly in Clover. Running r4003, booting macOS Sierra and Windows 10. What I'm trying to do is have Clover boot automatically into macOS Sierra if the boot process is undisturbed or boot into Windows 10 if I hold the predetermined hotkey, say 'w'. 
       
      So far, it's been iffy at best. I created a custom entry for Windows 10, and I can see it at boot, so I know at least that part is correct. However, I can no longer get the hotkey to actually boot Windows. All it does is cancel the timeout if one is set. If none is set, then hitting the hotkey does nothing. It worked once, and I have not been able to reproduce it.
       
      Ideally, I wouldn't even have to invoke the GUI. I have a RX 480 coming in tomorrow, and I'm trying to figure out a solution to a blind boot, aka not using anything requiring a screen, to change OSes. The only other workaround I have done is to use rEFInd's blind boot ability to choose between booting Clover->macOS and Windows. I don't like this solution, though, because it is clunky and requires checking 2 boot loaders should some issue arise.
       
      I have attached my config.plist so anyone can see if I just have something wrong in there. I use Clover Configurator for most things, but I use a traditional plist editor for some others.
      SMBIOS is iMac 17,1 - redacted for UUID reasons.
       
      For some reason, I can't upload the plist, so I converted it to text. Renaming it to '.plist' will allow you to view it, should you need, in a plist editor.
       
      Thanks for looking!

      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?
