How to do I uninstall iATKos S3 V2?

Relax! When people are over excited, they tend to make stupid mistakes. So relax.

 

Download PartedMagic Live CD (Linux live CD for PC repairs). Bun it to a CD or restore to an USB flash. Boot from it and run Gparted. It should show you what partitions are present on the disk (including file system type, amount of space used, size of partitions etc.). There should be a section called "flags". The "boot" word next to a partition indicates the partition your PC boots from. If this flag is set to OS X partition, then OS X should boot. If "boot" flag is set to Windows partition, then Windows should boot.

 

Gparted allows you to set "boot" flag to a desired partition. So you can right click on the Windows partition and set the "boot" flag to it (right click>Manage flags>boot). Now if Windows should boot. However you may need to restore Windows bootloader. This is done using Windows DVD/USB instalation media.

 

If nothing happens and you are sure there is nothing left from you Windows install or don't care to lose any date that is there, then you may wipe the disk clean using the same PartedMagic CD. Run it and open Terminal, then run this command:

shred -vfz -n 0 /dev/sda

This command will write zeros to the disk (secure erase), so there would be nothing left from both installs (including any bootloaders). Make sure you disconnect any other HDD/USB pen drives before running the above command. A side note: /dev/sda is linux name of a HDD, if there are two or more disks present in the system, then other disks would be named sdb, sdc etc. After that do a clean install of Windows.

 

As to

EBIOS read error: Error 0xbb

            Block 0x73692052 Sextors 0

Error, it may indicate that the disk (DVD for instance) may be corrupt (bad burn) or the image you've restored to an USB drive is corrupt. You may check this by disconnecting the HDD and then booting from an USB/DVD installation media. If the error is still present, most likely there is something wrong with the instalation media.

Thank you. I got passed the EBIOS error.. The USB was fat32 not NTFS. But, when I go to install windows 7, there's no C*/ or partition to save it to? Just a empty box.. Any ideas?

Again, use Gparted to check what is on the disk. It might be that partition table is incorrect and Windows partition is not visible. There are tools to restore/rebuild partition map, but be really careful when using such tools, as things can easily go wrong.

      Hello!
       
      I am struggling to install Windows 7 64 bit on a new computer. The storage is M2 and it has 8 GB RAM.
       
      The system is assembled by a company and not much information about the mobo is available.
       
      I simply want to install windows 7, preferably only... but I could leave an untouched Mac version on a partition if needed.
       
      Is this something Clover will be able to help me do?
       
      I have read many guides but a lot of them talk about dual-booting with macOS.
       
      Thanks!

      Hi there.
      Soo i was trying install mac at 4 days ago and finnaly today i can. I installed the Leopard and all works fin except the keyboard and ps2 mouse. And then i try a lot to put a .kext with transmac on windows xp cause im dual booting it.When i try to use Transmac i have the error"This drive is read only".
      Who i fix this?! This is my first question!
      The second i think is more hard. I have a Amilo Pro V3505 with 2gb ram and Intel GMA 945, a Intel Pentium T2130 idk the motherboard i aleardy try find the name but i couldnt with a Atheros ar5007eg wirless adapter.
      So i instal iAtkos S3 v2 but when i was booting(after installing) it he boots and starts make the sound of the animation video of snow leopard but THE SCREEN WAS GREY WITHOUT THE APPLE LOGO AND WITHOUT THE MOUSE JUST A GREY SCREEM.
      Well i try much flags but when i try GraphicsEnabler=No while the booting appears i recuve the message "you need to restart the computer" and i restart and gives again the same error.
      I think is some missing kext graphical but i cant add/remove kexts cause transmac give error!
      Thanks in advanced!

      Hello everyone, this is my first post here.
       
      I have a pretty old laptop that I'd like to get Snow Leopard running on. At first, I tried booting Nawcom's ModUSB with a retail DVD image, but I would always get kernel panic, no matter what I tried (I couldn't even get to the installer).
       
      So I decided to try a distro, after trying many different things with ModUSB. I decided to use Hazard's 10.6.1-10.6.2 SSE2/SSE3 Intel/AMD distro. I was shocked when it booted to the installer with no issues! I formatted the HD as Mac OS Extended (Journaled), GPT. I then installed Snow Leopard. After a while, the installation succeeded, and I was happy. It went ahead with the restart necessary for the installation, and... kernel panic. The same kernel panic I got before when trying ModUSB. I was really disappointed. 
       
      I've tried many things:
       
      boot flags, such as: acpi=off arch=i386 GraphicsEnabler=No PCIRootUID=0 -f -s -x (and more, including verbose mode of course)
      booting the installer again after successful installation, and then going to System/Library/Extensions on the HD in terminal, then: "chmod 755 *.*" as well as "kextcache -a i386 -m *.*"
      reinstalling with no customize options selected apart from the boot loader (first installation, things such as the legacy kernel and specific kexts were specified)
      and probably some other things that I can't remember right now
       
      The thing is, if the installer can load with no issues, then Snow Leopard should work fine too, because they're theoretically (don't know for sure) using the same components (kernel, kexts, etc.). If I boot the installer in verbose mode, it gets right past the part where it kernel panics after installation just fine. This makes me think that something is configured differently after it is installed - something that the installer does not have - which is causing the kernel panic and preventing the boot.
       
      Here are the specs of the laptop I'm trying to install this on:
       
      Intel Pentium M 753 ULV @ 1.2GHz
      1GB RAM
      855GME Graphics/Chipset
       
      I know that this probably isn't the most compatible with SL, and I know the chipset/graphics are unsupported. However, I think I will be able to get it to work eventually, I just need some input on what might be going on. Looking at the kernel panic, it points toward AppleACPIPlatform.kext, but I don't know what's exactly wrong with it that is causing the kernel panic.
       
      Please take a look at the verbose mode image I have attached. I appreciate any and all help I receive!

      Hey guys the reason why I'm making this post is because I didn't think I was going to be able to make a new version of Hackintosh in my old computer. It turned out that I actually could and it works flawlessly!  

      I will tell you what I've made so if you have similar components you can take my guide so you can install it as well. 
       
       
      SPECS: 

      Mobo: H61M-P31 (G3) 
      Processor: i3 3220
      GPU: GTX 1070 (EVGA SC)
      Memory: 8 GB (2x4 1333 MHz) 
      Storage: 2x SEAGATE 500 GB (Windows 10 installed on the 1 HD, Mac OS X in the 2)
      Display: SAMSUNG 23PL S23C550
       
      Where did I start?
       
      I started by downloading the Mac OS Sierra DMG (Niresh's version) and then transferred to a USB (8 GB) in Windows using Transmac app. It's pretty simple, there are tutorials available on the net how to do it.
       
      After you've transferred the DMG to your FLASH USB you will have to go to your BIOS and change SATA IDE to SATA AHCI mode. Also, you'll have to change the HDDs order for booting. If you want to make a dual boot with your windows system you'll have to let the Mac OS X HDD boot first so you can access your Windows system in Clover bootloader. Pretty simple, see more of the "how to" here (http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/303960-success-yosemite-hackintosh-on-msi-h61m-p31w8/) 
       
      Boot from USB
       
      After choosing your USB by pressing F11, there's no need to type anything ("darts=0 -v" is inserted by default on the boot loader) after you wait the loading if everything goes well you'll be able to see the setup Mac OS X screen. 
       
      Installation
       
      No mystery here just do what you've learnt and format the HD who is going to host Mac OS X Sierra (that can simply be found on youtube). After you have done all the HD stuff it's time to move on with the insulation. When you finally reach the part where you need to choose your HDD to install Mac OS on, go to Customize in the left bottom corner.  In Customize you'll have to change the bootloader from "Chameleon" to "Clover", for some reason when I tried to install with chameleon on it didn't proceed with the installation and I got several errors. That's very important to keep going with the installation process. 
       
      Post-installation
       
      If everything gone well you'll now be in the Desktop of your OS. Wait about 10 minutes so the system can configure and make all the changes. After that, the things you'll need to configure are your GPU and the Audio (if your audio for some reason have a static sound or an annoying noise). Also, you'll need to UPDATE your system to the version 10.12.6 so you can install the driver. No mystery here, just go to Appstore and update it and boot your system again (no flag needed). 
       
      GTX 1070 Driver (Nvidia Web Driver)
       
      in order to get your GTX 1070 working (works for all pascals and only) you'll need to install (378.05.05.25f01) version which worked for me. You can find it on this link: (http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/312525-nvidia-web-driver-updates-for-macos-sierra-update-07212017/)
       
      After you install your web driver you'll have to activate it on your bootloader.
       
      Nvidia Web Driver Activation
       
      After restarting your computer once you've installed the driver you'll need to go on Clover Configurator (which can be found by searching in Spotlight). After that, follow these steps: 
       
      1 > You'll get a message that Clover didn't find the config.plist and will ask you to mount an EFI Partition. Click on: Mount EFI Partition
      2 > You'll see the EFI Partition in the bottom, then click on "Mount Partition" after that you'll click on "Open Partition"
      3 > Go to: EFI > CLOVER > CONFIG.PLIST > Open with TextEdit
      4 > Scroll down to the last lines and replace: 
       
      <key>SystemParameters</key>
      <dict> <key>InjectKexts</key> <string>YES</string> <key>InjectSystemID</key> <true/> <key>NvidiaWeb</key> <true/> </dict> </dict> </plist>     5 > Close the TextEdit and save your changes. 
       
      - After that reboot your system, you'll probably get your Pascal GPU working by now. 
         
      Audio FIX / Microphone Fix / Siri Fix
       
      In order to get your microphone working/siri. You'll need to download the file: "VoodooHDA.Kext" and then follow these steps: VoodooHDA.kext.zip
      1 - > Open Kext Wizard > click on "Installation" tab > drag and drop the file you've just downloaded and drop it in the middle of the app screen > click on Install.
       
      After that, reboot your system and you'll probably get everything working by now just as I do
