Need help installing iAtkos ML2 on Acer TimelineU M5 Error "No interval found for , using 8000000" (Still waiting for root device)

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!


I'm having some problems with my notebook not being able to boot to install OSX. I keep getting this message with a large circle with slash. Here is a picture of what I am seeing all the time.



I use the -v -x and also -f but it doesn't seem to work. My hard drive is in AHCI mode and UEFI is turned off (Downgraded from Windows 8 to Windows 7)


 I am also using the non UEFI version of iAtkos Mountain Lion since I have UEFI disabled because Windows 7 does not support UEFI.


I am trying to install iAtkos ML2 from a USB drive.


Here is some more information regarding my Notebook:


Computer Brand Name:                Acer Aspire M5-581T
Operating System:                       Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate (x64) Build 7601 SP1

If more information is needed here is the Acer page for my notebook. http://us.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/model-datasheet/NX.M2HAA.009

Simple answer: Don't use iAtkos. Its pirated, and not guaranteed to work on every system. Better borrow a Mac from someone and create your own, legit, bootable OS X Installer.
