    Default [Hackint0sh Support] How to install darwin boot loader after installation of IATKOS?

    I've installed IATKOS 1.0i r2 but somehow messed up during the installation so when I try to boot it it just restarts.

    I'm able to boot my installation with the boot loader from the DVD using rd=disk0s2

    Is there any way to install the boot loader so I don't have to boot from the DVD every time?

    Default link for you.

    I think you fix it using the install disk (or just reinstall)

    Mysticus has posted some excellent guides to iatkos, i have used them a lot. I seem to remember he said you fix the bootloader using the install disc, but i cant remember exactly how, or find the link.

    you can search for his posts, particularly install guides on wiki.osx86project.org and forum.insanelymac.com.

    UPDATE

    I think this is the passage I remember, see 11) onwards

    =================================================
    How to copy your working partition to another HDD and make it bootable easily
    =================================================
    + Make sure you have the iAtkos R3 in handy distance as you will need it once...
    + Also Make sure that you created an OSX partition and erased/formated it on the new hdd that you want to copy your current OSX.
    + Make sure the new hdd is connected now so that you can copy the current working OSX partition to the new one

    1-) Open Disk Utility (Applications/Utilities/Disk Utility)
    2-) From the left side, Click On the name of the current OSX HDD
    3-) From the right side, Click on the Restore tab
    4-) On the right side, you should see Source and Destination paths
    5-) From the left side, drag and drop the name of your current working OSX partition to the Source path on the right side
    6-) From the left side, drag and drop the name of your new OSX partition on the new hdd to the Destination path on the right side
    7-) Do not choose anything on the bottom side unless you didnt erase the new hdd's new osx partition.
    8-) Click on the Restore button on the right bottom side
    9-) Now wait for the Restore to finish. (5-10 mins depending on your programs etc the partition size...)
    10-) Once it is finished, on your new hdd you have the same exact copy of your current working osx partition but not the bootloader...
    11-) To be able to boot from the new hdd's osx, you will need to set bootloader on it...
    12-) To set the bootloader you need iAtkos R3 DVD now.
    13-) Place the DVD, press f8 and run the installation process
    14-) Now crucial part is that, you need to choose the new HDD's OSX partition first, and proceed to Customize window
    15-) On customize window, choose only EFI bootloader!!! but nothing else!!! and click install, skip verify, (in 3-5 seconds it should finish) and restart and take the dvd out...
    16-) Now you have copy of your original os x and it is bootable... make sure you choose correct order of HDDs from the BIOS so that you boot from the new hdd...


    best of luck

    Thanks for your reply. I ended up using EasyBCD to create a Mac OS X boot option and that worked for me. Also installed kalyway instead, seems to work better for my setup.
