    Default Help: iATKOS v7 on a Dell Studio XPS

    Right then, I finally want to get into the iPhone development craze, so I decided to try and install iATKOS onto my laptop. I got the image from an isohunt torrent(the very first one, works like a charm). I booted the DVD, ran the install(I am installing it to an external HDD, 500GB WD), and it all worked smoothly, until the boot. Once I started the boot, everything looked to be working our fine, then the intro movie started to play(The "Welcome" video, in all different languages), and I noticed that the sound was messed up. It was really grainy, I could still hear the music, but it was grainy and kinda quiet. Then, after the video, I got a pop-up stating that I didn't have a keyboard plugged in. Anyway, long story short, I need some help getting this onto my external HDD. THese are my laptops specs:

    OS: Vista Home Premium
    Model: Studio XPS 1340
    Type: x64
    Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU P8600 @ 2.40GHZ
    BIOS: Dell Inc. A07, 5/4/2009
    RAM: 4GB
    Sound device: NVIDIA High Definition Audio (Also there is a IDT High Definition Audio CODEC above that)
    Display: NVIDIA GeForce 9400M G
    Wired: NVIDIA nForce 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet
    Wireless: Dell Wireless 1510 Wireless-N WLAN Min-Card

    I think thats everything that should be needed. If you need anyhting else, just give me a shout, and I'll pull it up for you all, thanks for reading, and I hope someone can help me out with this matter. (I just need all of the customization options that I will need to activate once I try next time to install the OS.)

    Default Dell XPS 1340 here as well

    Read your posting, I also have been trying to hackintosh my xps. I've downloaded the iATKOS v7 but have been unsuccessful in making it boot. I've tried selecting all the drivers on one install then selecting just the drivers I need but every time the apple loading window comes up the spinning circle freezes after about 20 seconds. I found this site http://mrjackspade.com/ that has really helped install x86 step by step and even provide the drivers but they use the regular leopard. How did you get yours installed? If I can figure out what i'm missing then I can continue on installing and setting it up. As for your sound problem I think the right drivers are needed, which you'll find at the site I just mentioned.

    Default iATKOS v7

    Try using an external usb keyboard. If you can find an old mac one, that would be superb. This should allow you to get it set up and then you can install the onboard keyboard kext and other stuff you will need.

    I had good luck using VoodooHDA instead of the audio kext for my ADI1984.

    Not sure about why the pizza wheel does that. You may want to allow it to continue without interruption for a little longer. Sometimes there is an issue that it needs to scratch its noggin and muscle through. Most of the time it will continue once it resolves the issue. Just walk away and ignore it for ten minutes.
