Hi Matpratik,

I have just followed your guide to install iAtkos -S3 -V2 on my HP Compaq Presario C700.

Your guide is clear and accurate. Thank you.

After successful installation (big green tick!), the Chameleon boot screen appears, the timeout passes, and then the computer returns to the BIOS boot screen. The process then repeats endlessly.

Tracking through the boot process with -x -v, on the 17th page scroll, the display ends with stuff like:


ACPI table not found:DSDT.aml

No DSDT found, using 0 as uid value

Using PCI-Root-UID value = 0

Intel GMAX3100 [8086:2a02} :: PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x2,0x0)

.

.

.

Customising System ID with : ebe04f4d-..........etc (UUID number)

ACPI table not found: DSDT.aml

ACPI table not found: DSDT.aml

FADT: Restart Fix applied!

FADT: Restart Fix applied!


Releasing the pause after this, the computer reboots and the process repeats over and over.


Can you suggest a fix please?

First of all this Laptop is DSDT free so no need any DSDT.aml :D

If you got restart every time that's issue of Chameleon for that

first you need to boot from iAtkos DVD and choose mac drive after successfully boot then open

then open /Extra folder and delete the Theam folder and add this strings

in Org.Chameleon.Boot.plist

" GraphicsEnabler= Yes USBFix= Yes UHCIreset= Yes "

once you done

and install Chimera1.11 boot loader on it and try

Hi again Matpratik, and thanks for quick reply!


If I try to boot from iAtkos DVD and HDD with 10.6.3 installed (Macompaq), the screen goes black, then returns to the Compaq Boot screen. It is in a loop, and after 10-20 secs, it returns to the Chameleon boot screen! So because I can't actually boot into 10.6.3, I can't get into the /Extras folder to remove the files you suggested. Also I can't load Chimera 1.11 if I can't get into 10.6.3.


I've tried a clean install too, but the same thing happens. Perhaps the iAtkos DVD is faulty?


Any more thoughts?

Thanks

Rob
