Help with MSI GT740 notebook and iATKOS L2

Question

Good day to you all,

First of thanks for taking the time to read my post.

I need help with a MSI GT740 laptop with the ATI 5870 vga.

I want to install iATKOS L2 and just can?t get it working.

Tried lots of boot flags and and and but I can?t get it to boot into the installer at all.

If anyone has any Ideas please share all your input is appreciated and I?m grateful for any help.

As a side note I can install iATKOS S3 v2 with success using the boot flag ?-v busratio=12?

Just an added thing, I now iATKOS booting up to [ PCI configuration begin ] but that?s where it stops.

Thanks all.

thank for the reply noname, I have gone round the form and tried a lot of flags. I gave the npci=0x2000 a bash and left the system for 20min at the PCI configuration begin ] screan but no luck there.

I tackled OSx 10.6.3 and upgraded to 10.6.8 with the help of MB{censored} and had a hell of a time on the GT740 because the realtek ALC888 sound chip made the system also stop at [ PCI configuration begin ] when rebooting after 10.6.8 upgrade.

To get 10.6.8 running I installed 10.6.3 with no audio drivers and also in the upgrade left the system without audio drivers and OSx 10.6.8 booted and I looked at the 10.6.8 desktop for the first time.

Can that be the cause of the [ PCI configuration begin ] on the iATKOS L2 installation boot up ? and is there a workaround for that audio chip if it is the culprit ?

I don't think that audio drivers are causing this. It's graphics problem. Try with npci=0x3000

Or, GraphicsEnabler=No.

Thanks once again for the reply and suggestions noname.

I gave the following a bash as boot flags :

1: -v npci=0x3000

2: -v npci=0x2000

3: -v GraphicsEnabler=No

4: -v GraphicsEnabler=No npci=0x2000

5: -v GraphicsEnabler=No npci=0x3000

But no luck. I also downloaded the iATKOS L2 img file again from another source and burnd 2 dvd copies just to be 100% sure the disk I'm using is ok.

Is there any other flags I can try in this situation ?
