    Default iAtkos on Dell Dimension 4600

    Well, my computer's motherboard is really outdated (the only part that is) and even it's newest BIOS Update doesn't support booting from DVD (even though it has a DVD Drive). So I make my 8gb USB bootable and try to make it bootable with the iAtkos .iso, but it only extracts a few hundred kb of data. I tried burning the iso to a DVD and installing on another PC and it did work, however i haven't been able to get it to work without the DVD using any conventional methods. Can anyone help me out?

    I did check in the BIOS, I believe it's because this computer didn't originally come with a DVD drive, I installed it myself.

    And also that USB guide won't work for me since I don't actually have OS X installed yet, so it has to be prepared on Windows 7 (or vista or xp, any of those works for me)

    So this can be a really simple process as long as you already have a Mac or a Hackintosh..... load you Mac Os.iso file on to the mac and mount the Dive by double clicking on the image. after the drive has mounted open up disk utility. plug in the usb drive that you want to load the image on to. after the drive appears you have to partition it to make it bootable. so with the usb drive selected select the partition tab. set up the partitions as you like. you are going to want to go into the options and change the format to either guide or MBR.... i recommend using the MBR for the usb and then GUIDE when you are installing the OS to your hard drive... but this can change based on the computer that you are installing all of this on to... you also want to set is as journaled which sould already be the default.... now your device is ready to be restored..... Select the restore tab in the disk utility and move your newly formatted drive to the destination. select the virtually mounted drive not the .img of the Mac os and make that your source. after that all you have to do is check the erase destination box and click restore. this will make your usb flash drive ready to go.... no keep in mind if you are doing a hackintosh you are going to need a boot loader of some kind and that is all going to have to be installed on to the drive before it will boot or your computer isnt going to know what to do with this boot img.


    Snow Leopard on Acer Aspire One AOA150/ZG5 Bassheadtech.com here is a how to on how to hackintosh an acer aspire one... this was my very first project and this has the process that i just described.... they used a different format then i said to use but it didnt work for me.... but the most important thing to remember is if it doesnt work read about what other people have done and then try changing a few little settings your self.... half of this is luck the other half is ready and guessing..... i have yet to go through a how to that works exactly the way that is says.... you just have to be patient.
