I am trying to install on a PC, it is my first time and right from the start I get an error:
"Error parsing plist file". This is on a black screen, then this is the first text when the screen turns fabric like gray, and a couple of kext loading screens later, it fairs and it reboots.

My PC:

Intel Core i7-2600
ASUS P8P67 REV 3.1
Corsair, 16 GB
GIGABYTE GeForce 9800 GT

and I am trying to install on a USB hard drive, from a burned rewritable DVD image of iATKOS L2 (Mac OS X Lion 10.7.2).

Try removing some RAM before installation.

I finally succeeded. I burned from Windows with ImgBurn and PowerISO and the dmg was not written as it should, that's why the errors, and the impossibility to install. I also tried to convert the dmg to iso and then burn, but I think the conversion wasn't done properly.
I finally installed iAtkos in Windows, in a VirtualBox machine and I burned the disk and installed in about 19 minutes and now it's working, but with some problems, like the keyboard (Lion thinks I have an Apple keyboard, but I have a normal 105-key Windows one, and some keys don't work, also Windows key is in fact Alt and real Alt is Command for Lion) and the resume from sleep doesn't work. Also, I installed with all my 16 gigabytes of RAM in, so memory quantity doesn't seem to be a problem.

It is such a shame that iAtkos is distributed in dmg format. Many people are trying it coming from Linux and Windows, not everyone already has a working installation or a real Mac, to burn the image. And here we are confronting with insurmountable problems, even before we install. If Mac OS X does not require some special features, found only in dmg, I think this should be released in iso file format, which is a plain image of the useful data. Apple's dmg can also be a plain image, but it also can be compressed and/or encrypted. I don't think Windows burning/conversion utilities handle that well.

with transmac it's possible burn the dmg extension under windows.
In my opinion, it's the best software for windows to do it.

take it and all problems go away.

Ok, installed fine now from iAtkos L2 but sleep function does not work properly.
I press Apple -> Sleep and the computer goes normally to sleep. It does not resume, though. I just see a black screen.

I am using a USB hard drive. Is it possible that the USB ports are not woken up properly? Because a lot of people say the sleep works with this board. The USB HDD may be the only difference.

Is there a patched driver I should install?

I have installed the above kext and I experience the same issue: going fine to sleep, not coming out of sleep properly. This basically means that the PC starts but the monitor is in sleep state.

I had same problem, solved with TRANSMAC.

It converts DMG to ISO properly and also burn it.


When trying to burn a iAtkos .dmg file, I get an error. Something like "it's not supported". Too bad I cannot detail somehow the error to see why I get it.
