    Exclamation AMD fault? WiFi fault? Or everything?

    Hi! I tried to install iAtkos on my computer and another distro which I can't remember now (sorry!), but both got stuck on the booting screen, where the apple stays in the grey background while the 'thing' swirl.
    I really want to use Mac OS X on my computer, maybe the problem is because even being a desktop, I use it with wireless connection... there's always something wrong with the WiFi chip, right? At least I see a lot of people with WiFi problems...


    these are the specifications of my hardware:

    Motherboard: M2N68-AM (ASUSTeK Computer INC.)
    CPU: AMD Phenom(tm) 9650 Quad-Core Processor (Advanced Micro Devices [AMD])
    Memory: 4GB
    VGA compatible controller: GeForce 9500 GT (nVidia Corporation)
    Wireless interface: AR5008 Wireless Network Adapter (Atheros Communications Inc.)
    HD: WDC WD3200AAJS-5 320GB (Western Digital)


    I know this kind of topic is really boring to answer and stuff like that... but... does anyone has a similar computer? and do you know which distribution is better to my specs?
    Thank you. :-)

    The only interesting thing is that osx86 wiki tells that I need to use iAtkos on my motherboard version. But I always got stuck on this damn screen:

    This means that iAtkos is not the right distribution to my hardware, right?

    I did not customized my installation. I just downloaded iAtkos v7 and tried to boot with its DVD.
    I'm trying to boot in command line to add the flag by pressing Shift, but I'm not having success.

    It was SATA HD problem. Changed it to AHCI mode on Bios and installed ok.

    The installation has finished, but now I can't boot. If I try normal boot, verbose mode, single user mode, any of them just stops on a Blank Black Screen. Or If I try Normal Boot, it stops on the gray screen with the apple logo.

    Any hint?

    I didn't.
    I just remembered that I needed to set it to AHCI mode, and then the DVD booted.

    The thing is, I installed iAtkos v7 ALMOST successfully. After the installation finishes, it asks me to reboot the system, then I press ok and...
    kernel panic

    LOL of coz man, you at least need a patched kernel like voodoo cuz your using AMD, you need to set SATA kexts, try customizing and report back read the info for each kext if you have doubts.

    Check in the HCL similar systems to know how to customize, try again and report back.

    Thank you for the support. Unfortunately there is almost no documentation about Hackintosh at all. I didn't know that because I was using AMD I should choose VooDoo (tried 9.7).

    iAtkos installed successfully, it even recognized my WiFi (Atheros!), although it freezes about 30 seconds later if I'm connected to my wireless connection. (yep, if I'm not connected, my Mac does not freezes).
    This is kind of weird because this also happens on Linux. I need to install Windows drivers on Linux to make the WiFi works without freezing...

    If I try to connect a WiFi dongle, it kernels panic (but this is expected I guess, there's always this conflict problems on mac)

    I'm having a few problems moving the "windows", their border disappear when I move them. It's kind weird, but I think it should be solved by adding the right kexts.
    And still about video, I can only use 1024x768, I don't think my video card has been recognized... because my 19" screen can use 1440x900 in any other OS.

    Well, thanks again for your support. I think it can't be helped that it's only on trial-error and there is no documentation at all.

    Thanks one more time. :-)
