    Default iAtkos s3 version 2 on virtualbox/VMWare

    Hi all,

    I'm looking to set up a virtual machine running osx so I can compile code targeting the iPhone.

    My processor is a core 2 duo mobile t5550, so I have SSE3/SSSE3, but not VT.

    I've tried loading it with VMs set up for FreeBSD, Mac OSX Server, and Other, and none of them work. I get the iAtkos initial screen, then the big grey screen with the apple logo, and then the VM crashes. I've enabled PAE in virtualBox, but it still won't load.

    Are there some settings I need to set up first? Should I try different virtualisation software? Should I try a different hackintosh distro?

    Cheers
    Spec

    I don't use Windows VM, but you can select FreeBSD.
    As for booting S3, use boot options:

    -x -v cpus=1 (and/or busratio=20 if needed)

    Never mind, I figured it out.

    I tried it with:

    -x -v cpus=1
    -x -v busratio=20
    -x -v cpus=1 busratio=20

    And all of them get to the stage of "booting darwin x86" and then the VM crashes...

    You could try to disable all extra CPU features.
    If not then try VMWare software to see if it's any better as that is more popular.
    The other distro release that should work with your hardware should be SnowOSX Universal v3.5/3.6
    See how it goes for you.

    I tried VMWare and things went much better. I managed to get the installer to start up with -x -v cpus=1 busratio=20, magic! However, the mouse doesn't work, what could be causing this?

    Should I have it set up for FreeBSD, or FreeBSD 64 Bit? VMWare complains if I use FreeBSD 64 bit because it says the host doesnt support it, but I'm running Windows 7 x64?

    Thanks for all your help so far =)

    Also, would it be easier to use darwin to install normal snow leopard, as it's on a VM?

    It's good news.
    1. Mouse after installation or during installation?
    2. Mostly FreeBSD, as it may be issue with VM instead.
    Not quite sure of your last question. Install SL as real OS instead of virtual with host?

    It's during installation, so I am never able to move the mouse in the VM.

    As for installing SL, I meant installing SL as guest on a VM, and Windows 7 Host.

    As for the mouse issue, whatever pass down to OSX from W7 and the installer hardware detection. You may want to try different type, PS2/USB and maybe there is hardware configuration from W7 that you need to set for virtual machine.
    As for SL as guest in W7 environment, it's depend on hardware configuration. Many times SL is easier than Leopard, if that is what you're asking.

    Well the mouse worked fine in kalyway, but the installer for that would always fail halway through.

    Snowosx universal crashes when it gets to "starting darwin x86"

    For some reason iatkos has stopped getting to the installer, it now fails when it gets to here:

    Creating RAM Disk for /Library/Preferences
    Initialized /dev/rdisk6 as a 512 KB HFS Plus volume
    Bug: launchctl.c:2325 (23930):30: (dbfd = open(g_job_overrides_db_path, 0_RDONLY | 0_EXLOCK | 0_CREAT, S_IRUSR | S_IWUSR)) != -1
    systemShutdown false
    appleATADiskQueueManager::setPowerState(0x3bf5d00, 2 -> 1) timed out after 101893 ms

    Aaaagh!
