    Default [HELP ME] Installing iATKOS v7 10.5.7 on a Gateway PC

    Hi, I own a Gateway PC with the following specs:
    Processor Type Intel Core 2 Quad 8200
    Processor Speed 2.33GHz
    RAM 8GB DDR3 SDRAM
    Hard Drive Speed/Capacity 1TB SATA
    Optical Drives 18x DVD+/-R/RW SuperMulti Drive
    Graphics ATI Radeon HD4650
    Pre-loaded Operating System Windows Vista Home Premium 64-Bit

    I am able to boot iATKOS with cpus=1 but when ever it installs right before it finishes it fails and goes to a bunch of coding and asks me to take a picture of it (Sorry for not knowing what this is called). I have tried many combinations of "customize" before installing. Can anyone help me?

    How did you customize your installation?

    Snow Leopard 10.6.6, Asus IPIBL-LB MOD BIOS, Intel Quad Core Q6600, 4GB RAM (800mhz), 2x500GB, nVidia 8600GT (Works), ALC888S (Works), Wireless RT73 (Works), LAN (Works) - How to Install - Blog - Hardware Combos - FAQ by TJ2K7

    I customized it with

    Xiestyl (something like that) installer
    AppleDecrypt
    SMBIOS-EFI
    Disabler
    OHR
    RemoveTy
    Voodoo PS/2
    ATI VGA driver
    INTEL SATA
    Intel Pro/100 wired network

    What i just did was go into terminal and put in:
    diskutil list (to know your partition number)
    fdisk -e /dev/rdisk0
    flag 2 (put your partition number of leopard)
    update
    write
    y
    q

    This gave me:
    Boot0: MBR
    Boot0: done

    I can successfully load Leopard by pressing F8 when CD is booting and typing "cpus=1 rd=disk0s3"

    So what can I do to fix the boot manager and access my Vista OS?

    THANKS ICCHANSAN!

    @.o; Kkz something is wrong there but anyway to boot into vista, boot into your vista DVD and repair your bootloader, it will take like a min then you'll be able to boot into Windows

    Theres guides for this, check our guides for Leopard/Vista in the dual boot section

    Another freakin update.

    I was able to get into Vista and instal EasyBCD and set it up. When I turn on my computer and EasyBCD kicks in I am able to select Vista or LEopard. When I select Leopard I get a flashing _ (underscore).

    Hopefully this wil be able to be resolved shortly with this last problem
