ok so lets try this forums. ive been to 3 different forums and no one wants to help so ill give it a shot here. i did my best to do this on my own and not asking for help but its not working. lets start by saying these are my specs:
Nvidia e-Geforce 8600 GT
Segate 1 TB sata
I am gonna tell you straight up that Kalyway DOES indeed work for my system but I want to try iAtkos. I have had good results in the past and it seems like it would be faster so I just wanna TRY! my main problem is choosing the correct configuration upon installation. I have tried everything I could think of. No luck. I get the gray apple logo then the circle with the line through it comes up. Picture here:
I can not get past that screen. I first used these settings:
C EFI V9 (bootloader)
SMBIOS-EFI (SMBIOS drivers)
9.2.0 Kernel ToH (kernel)
this caused the "circle with line through it" screen. then I found this on a forum and thought i would use these settings.
this ALSO gave me the "circle with line through it". so someone said to try
"That was it, all I had to change was the PC EFI v9 to Chameleon, all other settings stay the same, and it worked! Of coarse when I updated now the ICH9R and JMicron get lost to Unknown! Minor issue, track down the correct kext and all is good."
this also gave me the "circle with line through it". get the trend? so basically i have tried everything my little brain could think of. tried -v, -f, -x, -s. heres what i got with -v:
maybe there is stuff that i am still missing? i dunno. if someone could help, i would REALLY REALLY appreciate it. if not, then i give up and ill go to Kalyway. thanks in advance!
