P5N-D + iATKOS S3 V2 Will not boot
This is my first attempt at a Hackintosh
I have a Velocity Micro e2250 (with a few upgrades) and I have successfully gotten through the installation process of iATKOS S3 V2.
I have tried many different options (disabling SMART in BIOS, disabling other hardrives, maxmem, rd=diskXsY, cpus=1, -v -x, -v -f, etc.) and cannot successfully boot.
Either I get a "Still waiting for root device" message or a Kernel Panic that generally gets stuck at "system uptime in nanoseconds: _____________"
As I said this is new to me, so I'm not sure what's preventing it from booting. I can access the OSX hard drive from Win7 installation off of another hard drive, so I have access to the files.
Here are some of my hardware specs, if that helps:
Asus P5N-D Mobo
nForce 750i SLI chipset
8 GB ram (which is why I use maxmem=2048 at boot)
NVidia GeForce 9800 GTX
Any ideas as to what is preventing boot?
you must to find nforceata, a kext that can work for you, and install it.
i would try a retail install.
I reinstalled using a modified kernel and it finally booted up.
The only problem I'm having now is getting my system to boot up with the 8gb of ram I have (i.e. without using "maxmem=2048")
I've looked around for some modified AppleNForceATA.kext files and tried installing them, but without the maxmem=2048 at boot, it shuts itself down during boot.
I used Kext Utility to install them.
Anybody know the right Kext to use and the best way to install it?
if you can bootup using maxmem, the problem is not kext, you should consider a dsdt, but i don't know how to deal with that
