    Default iATKOS s3 v2 on Acer Aspire Problems. HELP!

    Tried installing iATKOS v7 and got almost in working order, but I couldn't actually boot it. It just flashed a picture of the apple boot screen and then restarted the computer, so I decided to try installing iATKOS s3 v2. I got the .iso and burned it to a disk at 2x and tried to boot from it. The computer boots into the chameleon 2 loader (after flashing an 'Error parsing plist file' error,) but no matter what I type into the boot text thing, I get a blank screen for about 10 minutes, then an 'Errors encountered while starting up the computer' then 'waiting 5 seconds' then the computer reboots, or if I use -x then I get about 20 pages of code, and the computer reboots.

    tl:dr,
    I tried installing OSX on my windows pc, didn't work, need help.

    Did anyone get a successful install? I too have the same Aspire 5742z. Tried a few different customisations but no success. I get apple logo at reboot with no hd activity and just hangs.

    Also, just in case I'm wasting a lot of time here, do you have to clean install everytime to change the custom install settings? I'm getting fed up and starting to think there are better things to do in life!!
