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.
