    Default iATKOS v7 on Asus P6T

    Hello all.

    I'm trying to install Mac OS X iATKOS on my system in a separate partition and am having quite many issues.

    My system is:

    Mobo: Asus P6T
    CPU: Intel Core i7 920
    Graphics: Nvidia GeGorce 2xx Series
    HDD: Western Digital 500GB SATA


    I managed to boot from the DVD by using "busratio=20 cpus =1" and tried a few different customized installs.
    All failed miserably

    They all ended with a "succesfull install" , leading to a reboot and then just when something was supposed to happen and the apple logo screen appears to load I get the "STOP SIGN" and the loading seems to go on forever. The only way to get out of that seems to be to restart my system and try another install.

    By searching on the forum I see that this is referred to as waiting for root device and that it means it either does not recognise my chipset or hard drive.

    I tried playing with the BIOS hard drive modes AHCI<->SATA but nothing worked.


    So the question is very straightforward. With my system ... is there anything ... any combination of packages at install time which will lead to a succesfull installation? Or anything else that I am missing which leads to me getting stuck?

    I know that this is what 99% of the people in here are asking but I don't know what else to do. Thanks in advance for any reply!

    Default lefteris p6t non deluxe root device error iatkos v7

    lefteris this is how you get rid of root device error.
    when you boot with v7 iatkos leave everything defult like it is . except select your network lan which is realtek1000 ok
    this is the part were you get the root device error. because it happened to me. now in system you will select intel sata /ide and jmicron controllere both of them have to be selected if you select only one you will keep getting the root device error. hope this helps email me for questions.

    Default My Working Asus p6t and gtx260 iAtkos v7 walkthrough

    I cannot take credit for this guide: it is my recompilation and regurgitated version that works for me with Dual booting windows 7 and iAtkos v7

    iAtkos v7 install on ASUS p6t v2 with EVGA GTX 260 graphics

    Preparation:
    Make sure your target SATA hard drive is in the SATA Port 1.
    In Windows, go to Disk Management and shrink your existing partition by at least 10 gbs. Format it as NTFS, won’t matter will reformat it later as Mac OS X Extended (Journaled).
    (For dual booting with an existing Windows install later: Make sure AHCI is enabled in Windows.)
    DO THIS To resolve this issue, enable the AHCI driver in the registry before you change the SATA mode of the boot drive. To do this, follow these steps:
    1. Exit all Windows-based programs.
    2. Click Start, type regedit in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER.
    3. If you receive the User Account Control dialog box, click Continue.
    4. Locate and then click the following registry subkey:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\Msahci
    5. In the right pane, right-click Start in the Name column, and then click Modify.
    6. In the Value data box, type 0, and then click OK.
    7. On the File menu, click Exit to close Registry Editor.

    During the Windows 7 or Windows Vista installation process, any unused storage drivers are disabled. This behavior speeds up the operating system's startup process. When you change the boot drive to a driver that has been disabled, you must enable the new driver before you change the hardware configuration.
    IN THE BIOS
    Disable the other cores, run on 1 Core only.
    Set the SATA to AHCI Mode
    Set the DVD Drive as boot Priority
    Repost Video on S3 Resume = YES,
    ACPI 2.0 Support = Enabled,
    ACPI APIC Support = Enabled
    and on APM Configuration change Restore on AC Power Loss to Last State






    Chameleon/Bootloader
    The iAtkos v7 release uses the Chameleon Bootloader by default.
    Insert the iAtkos v7 DVD into the drive. Boot Computer.
    As the iAtkos DVD boots up choose F8 to enter advanced startup options:
    Choose these flags: -v –x cpus=1 busratio=20
    (-v is verbose to show errors/steps in boot)(-x is safe mode boot/disables some drivers/kexts on the boot disk)(cpus=1 forces only one core to be used)(busratio=20 sets the front bus to the default multiplier)
    It WILL HANG up or seem to freeze just be patient. ( I probably threw away some successful boots assuming it wasn’t going to make it past a certain point).
    You will come to a gray screen with the Mac OS rainbow “pinwheel”. Choose next until you get to a screen with the Mac bar of “File Edit View, etc”.
    Choose Utilities, Disk Utilities, choose your target partition click Erase from the tabs on the right of the window.
    Make it a Mac OS X Extended (Journaled) file format. Close that window.
    Select your Target Destination/Partition/Hard drive.
    Click Customize.
    This is where you make or break you install and Hardware be CAREFUL
    I stuck to “safe options” I chose:
    THESE for sure: WIRED NETWORK LAN: Marvell 88E8056
    CardBus Driver: (for USB functionality)

    I *did get it working with these 3 options:
    For working Video drivers:
    Choose: DVI/DVI NV ENABLER Nvidia GT200 EVGA

    You should now install and get “Install Successful” and a green check box.
    On first reboot, at Chameleon bootloader:
    Hit F8 for advanced options use these flags:

    -f –v cpus=1 busratio=20
    the –f flag fixes permissions on files
    At this Point please watch the boot and if it hangs have a pen and paper ready to record the problems so you can google and fix them.
    IT WILL TAKE A LONG TIME TO BOOT, BE PATIENT
    If it boots successfully (and it will take 10 mins or so before we fix something later)you’ll see the Video and Music then set up your User Account.
    Go ahead and shut down and reboot again.
    Press F8 for advanced options and again do these flags:
    -f –v
    this is to fix any other file permissions and to see if there are any post install boot errors. Verify it WILL boot however slow it may be.






    Now to FIX THE DSDT to allow all Cores and stop the Slow boot/Shutdown

    E. [patch your DSDT]

    This will enable you to have 4 cores +HT, it will stop those annoying pauses at bootup, and it will give you a DSDT ready for the 10.5.6 upgrade. How nice!
    1. Download the patcher you find here, unzip it, for example, on your desktop, and double click on the DSDT Patcher file. When asked, enter 0 (zero) to emulate Darwin OS.
    2. Open the terminal and type:

    cd Desktop/DSDT_Patcher1 change directory to wherever you unzipped the patcher

    nano Debug/dsdt.dsl open and modify the patched dsdt

    delete the lines that start with Alias, change this:
    CODE
    Scope (_PR)
    {
    Processor (P001, 0x01, 0x00000810, 0x06) {}
    Alias (P001, CPU1)
    Processor (P002, 0x02, 0x00000000, 0x00) {}
    Alias (P002, CPU2)
    Processor (P003, 0x03, 0x00000000, 0x00) {}
    Alias (P003, CPU3)
    Processor (P004, 0x04, 0x00000000, 0x00) {}
    Alias (P004, CPU4)
    Processor (P005, 0x05, 0x00000000, 0x00) {}
    Alias (P005, CPU5)
    Processor (P006, 0x06, 0x00000000, 0x00) {}
    Alias (P006, CPU6)
    Processor (P007, 0x07, 0x00000000, 0x00) {}
    Alias (P007, CPU7)
    Processor (P008, 0x08, 0x00000000, 0x00) {}
    Alias (P008, CPU8)
    Processor (P009, 0x09, 0x00000000, 0x00) {}
    Alias (P009, CPU9)
    Processor (P010, 0x0A, 0x00000000, 0x00) {}
    Processor (P011, 0x0B, 0x00000000, 0x00) {}
    Processor (P012, 0x0C, 0x00000000, 0x00) {}
    Processor (P013, 0x0D, 0x00000000, 0x00) {}
    Processor (P014, 0x0E, 0x00000000, 0x00) {}
    Processor (P015, 0x0F, 0x00000000, 0x00) {}
    Processor (P016, 0x10, 0x00000000, 0x00) {}
    }


    into this:
    CODE
    Scope (_PR)
    {
    Processor (P001, 0x01, 0x00000810, 0x06) {}
    Processor (P002, 0x02, 0x00000000, 0x00) {}
    Processor (P003, 0x03, 0x00000000, 0x00) {}
    Processor (P004, 0x04, 0x00000000, 0x00) {}
    Processor (P005, 0x05, 0x00000000, 0x00) {}
    Processor (P006, 0x06, 0x00000000, 0x00) {}
    Processor (P007, 0x07, 0x00000000, 0x00) {}
    Processor (P008, 0x08, 0x00000000, 0x00) {}
    Processor (P009, 0x09, 0x00000000, 0x00) {}
    Processor (P010, 0x0A, 0x00000000, 0x00) {}
    Processor (P011, 0x0B, 0x00000000, 0x00) {}
    Processor (P012, 0x0C, 0x00000000, 0x00) {}
    Processor (P013, 0x0D, 0x00000000, 0x00) {}
    Processor (P014, 0x0E, 0x00000000, 0x00) {}
    Processor (P015, 0x0F, 0x00000000, 0x00) {}
    Processor (P016, 0x10, 0x00000000, 0x00) {}
    }


    Press Ctrl+O (that's the letter "o") and [ENTER] to save the file, then press Ctrl+X to close nano.

    ./DSDT\ Patcher Debug/dsdt.dsl run the patcher again (you will get 3 errors about files not existing or already existing, that's fine, don't worry about it)

    cp dsdt.aml /DSDT.aml copy the DSDT to the root directory(MAY HAVE TO USE A COMMAND IN TERMINAL TO ALLOW THE FILE COPY. I DID THAT AND DELETED ORIGINAL FILE IN ROOT AND CUT/COPY PASTED THE PATCHED VERSION TO THE ROOT FOLDER.
    At this point repair permissions. I used the Repair Permissions tool from the OSx86 toolkit.
    REBOOT, ENTER BIOS
    Enable ALL Cores, Save and Exit.
    As Chameleon is loading once again enter F8 to get Advanced Options:
    -f –v
    to see the verbose (command line OS loading) and to fix file permissions
    You SHOULD have a MUCH faster Boot time and all cores should show up now.
    If you wish to now dual boot with a pre-existing Windows install:
    Reboot with the windows install disk in the drive.
    Use the startup repair to fix the bootup of the existing Windows installation.
    You may have to try this several times. Also I had to use the command line option to set the Windows partition/drive active:

    Choose the command line option, in the command prompt (from the recovery disk):
    Type:
    diskpart, list disk, select (your windows disk/partition) format is select disk x, then list partition, select the windows pre-existing partition, type: active
    Now reboot, and try to run the repair again, you should be able to boot into windows.
    At this point download a tool called EasyBCD to use to add the Mac as a Boot entry. This will give you the two options at bootup.texy
