Issues with iATKOS_V7 10.5.7
I need a running and stable MAC OS for an upcoming college project. I already tried two days to get it up and also did a lot of research and googling but I still havenīt managed to get it running so far.
First of all here is my hardware:
W3540 (core i7 940 as Xeon)
6GB Corsair Dominator 2000CL7
I disabled HT and A20M in Bios. VT is enabled. Storage configuration is IDE (canīt use AHCI for now because it would have to reinstall Windows too than and since iīm using VMware for iATKOS it shouldnīt be that important).
Iīm running VMware Workstation 7.0.1 and using following settings:
Custom Install: OS->Other(FreeBSD 64bit), Number of Processor=1, Number of Cores=4, 1024MB MEM, LSI Logic, SCSI Drive
Thats more or less what I found on Google as recommendation.
After boot i press F8 and use -v cpus=1 busratio=21, boots fine and Iīm able to install iAKTOS. Creating new partition with Disk Utility (Mac OS extended (journaled)) and set Master Boot Record. Customize Install afterwards. I already tried many different combinations of drivers so far. I read that Voodoo Kernel 9.0.7 adds core i7 support but everytime i used v9.0.7 it ended up in an endloss reboot afterwards, so i used 9.0.5, that got me a bit further. Belonging to the driver, i tried different combination as i stated before but it always ended up in the same problem. After installation is complete i get in the GUI Mode with the green cameleon. I enter -v cpus=1 busratio=21 again, system boots up. And this is what i got all the time after a while of waiting. System Doze :?
Sometimes I also got the error msg, that my CPU has been blocked by the guerst system or something like this.
I also tried modifieng my vmx file with:
monitor.virtual_exec = "hardware"
monitor.virtual_mmu = "software"
paevm = "TRUE"
since i read it here on the forum, but it hasenīt helped me either
I really need some help on this. I guess i have to use Kernel 9.0.7 for i7 but like i said i only got endless reboots after installation with it, maybe there is something Iīm just missing..
Thanks in advance.

I haven't been able to get iATKOS v7 to install on VMWare. I have installed iATKOS v4 on VMWare Player successfully though. A few things that I have noticed when trying to get v4 to work are: 1) in the .vmx config file, change "freebsd-64" to "darwin10" under the guestOS. Make sure to make a copy of your current config before making any changes. That way you can make sure to get back to where you started if things don't work. 2) keep the iATKOS iso file as IDE 0:0. For some reason, the OS seems like it depends on the iso file to boot. 3) when the chameleon bootloader shows up, don't type in anything. Just let it cycle through. Sometimes my system will not boot if I try to enter options. 4) mine didn't work the first 10 or so times I tried it, but one time it booted up, and it hasn't had a problem since. Maybe, just try it a few more times and it will get past where it is hanging. 5) when in doubt save the files, and try to install again using different options. I may not have your answers, but I hope it at least helps.
