    Default iAtkos S3 reboot loop before install begins

    Hi there,

    I got issues with my pc. I am trying to install iAtkos S3 to my PC which is following:
    Mobo: Intel DH55TC
    Cpu: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU 860 @ 2.80GHz
    8Gb ram
    Geforce, 8xxx or 9xxx line.
    I am using onboard audio.
    And I am prefering to keep Hyper Threading disabled, would that cause me issues down the line?


    In BIOS I have turned IDE to ACPI and standby S1 mode S3, I have had impression this is what needs to be done for successful installation.

    But my issue is that if I boot from the dvd, it loads some line of code, chameleon screen dissapeares and for a glimpse the grey background with grey apple appears and system restarts. Basically it goes to restart loop.

    I've read that I might need to use busratio=22 but I am not quite sure it is good way to process.

    Please help, thank you.

    Allright, I was able to get going with cpuratio=21. All went smooth except LAN is not working. It is a Intel 82578DC, I tried to find information about it but was not able to come up with much. I had impression that using AppleIntelE1000e.kext should fix that problem. After I installed that system does not boot up anymore. verbose shows no errors, screen goes black and stays that way.

    If your system is crashing after installing the kext then you could delete it to get your OSX back, and try other network kext.
    Did you install it in /S/L/E?

    I tried to look up information how to solve the crashing but was unable to find good info about it. I understand one option would have to boot into safe mode and delete the kext but safe mode also crashed. How could I delete the kext to make the OSX boot again?

    Please excuse my novicity but what did you mean with this line:
    Did you install it in /S/L/E?

    If you want to delete the kext, wouldn't you need to know where you've put it to?

    The line means that if you installed it with installer utility then it would reside in that folder. If you drag/drop it then it could be somewhere else.

    Thank you for your reply.

    To install kext I used these instructions: How to Install .KEXT file on OSX86 | iHackintosh

    I can not uninstall this kext since I can not access the hard drive. System does not boot up, also not in safe mode. :/
    Is there any other way to access osx files without booting up the system?

    I am also considering to use separate lan card since that particular card what I have on board seems to have issues.

    If you have windows on it then use macdrive to access and delete the kext, or you can try to use Terminal commands within SL to remove it, a more involved method.
