Acer Aspire can only boot with iAtkos disk
I am running an Acer Aspire 7551G w/ iAtkos S3 v2 on a 2nd partition
AMD Phenom II X4 N970 quad core 2.2GHz
AMD Radeon HD 6470M
4 GB RAM
500 GB SATA
Atheros ARB97 wireless card
I can install these options
-Chameleon v2 RC5
- qoopz 10.3.0
I have tried to install every different Bootloader available but they all look the same so I'm not sure if that part is working or not. Either way when I try and boot off of the bootloader it always crashes after "Starting Darwin x86". However, when I boot from the iAtkos disk (which has an identical looking bootloader) it boots fine. I tried installing Chameleon v2.0 RC5 pkg but the installation failed. I should also mention my active partition is my Windows bootloader partition (SYSTEM RESERVED, set up with EasyBCD). Would this possibly cause an issue? Do you guys recommend another bootloader or method of installation? Should I get rid of EasyBCD and stick with the x86 bootloader?
Once this is booted up it works decently well. A little choppy, but not terrible.
Still need working:
-Atheros ARB97 kexts
-Broadcom Ethernet (Ethernet bootloader option did not work)
-Built in keyboard and mouse (Neither ApplePS/2 nor Voodoo PS/2 seem to work, but I also saw no prefPane for it)
If you can help me out, point me in the right direction, or recommend any sites or software then please help out a Hackintosh noob. :) I'm trying real hard to learn!
