Default Installing MAC on PC. iAtKos v7 Issue.

I Downloaded iatkos v7 to install on my laptop and im getting an error.

It states:

"IOPCCardBridge: : start failed
Error: Firewire unable to determine security-mode; defaulting to full-secure.
Still waiting for root device"

I would like to go ahead and get Mac on this machine.
The specs are as followed.


AMD Turion 64 Mobile Technology
446MB Memory
VESA v2.0 64MB (ATI RADEON XPRESS 200M Series)

If you need anything eles, let me know.
Everything is appreciated.

If you want to run Mac OS 10, buy a Mac. Don't try to hack the software and complain it doesn't work.

Mac is not an abbreviation. MAC stands for Media Access Control.

I didn't hack it. Mac's are too expensive for me to purchase and i thought i would learn how to use on if i put it on an inexpensive laptop i have sitting around. I Youtubed this and I thought it would be a good idea.

OS X is based on Linux anyway. Just download some version of Linux and install that. It's free...

Even the hacked versions of Mac OS X Don't work with AMD's, only Intels anyway, you can't install OS X on your machine.

Correct. Unix I believe, not Linux. The ubuntu forums seem to agree. http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=462789

Either way, it's against the TOS of Apple to put their OS on anything that is not Apple branded. That said, thread closed. We can't help you with something that can get us in trouble.

Not totally true .

It's not as easy to install on an AMD machine, but it is possible.
