I am not too new to this hackintosh project. What brought me to this project was the Windows-measles: I was so sick of Windows 7 I wanted a new OS, and guess what? , OS X came to the ReScUe! I have googled a lot. I even downloaded Mac OS X Snow Leopard and tried to follow Tonymacx86's guide and tips but after a month's of hard preparation, I couldn't burn the OS ! I was too depressed.... :( But I still didn't give up hope: I downloaded iATKOS L2 at the beginning of the second month. Then, after days of hard work I found the solution to burning the OS (I had 0% access to a Mac so I used Transmac.) . I restored it (or burned) to a a 8 GB USB stick. Next, I googled for a bootloader installation guide, but in vain. Luckily I had an iBoot CD, so I used it to boot into the OS. It didn't work, so, I plugged in the USB stick, pressed F12 (Boot Device Selection) during startup and a box came. There, I selected " *Hard Drive " and found the USB stick and Hard Drive. I selected the USB stick and found myself in iBoot. Then, I pressed F5 and (Hoorah!) popped out a logo of a green DVD Reader and a label reading "iATKOS L2". Immediately after pessing the enter key, a black screen comes and after a few minutes, a apple logo comes for a split second (sometimes three seconds) then the computer restarts. :(+:(+:(+:(+:(+:(+:(+:(+:(+:(+:(+:(+:( = ultra :( This is beginning to get out of control. I am really depressed... Did I do something wrong? I downloaded iAtkos from the official site. I have also used boot flags like -v, -x, -f, -s and cpus=1. Please help! Below are all the specifications of my computer:
