iATKOS S3 Release!

iATKOS v7 (which is based on Leopard), is the first Mac OS X guest that I have successfully setup in VirtualBox (at the days of VB v3.1.x), now iATKOS S3 is released!

iATKOS S3 is based on Snow Leopard 10.6.3. According to the readme, this DVD is designed for non-Apple x86 Intel CPU computers. The minimum requirements are "Compatible motherboard, Intel SSE2 CPU, 512MB RAM, 15GB free space on target partition". Having said that, while we are to install it under VirtualBox, VT-x supported is still required.

It's worth a try if "standard" SL installation fails with all the patches/workarounds that you have made.


System Used

By no means this is the only hardware and software configuration that allows you to setup iATKOS under VB. I just want to point out this so that in case of any unexpected errors and differences, at least we need to check if these are caused by the differences in hardware and software used.

The readme of iATKOS S3 mentioned that the DVD is for Intel CPU computers, I am not sure if it works for AMD CPUs. If you owns an AMD machine, you may make references to the following articles in the Troubleshooting & FAQ session:

Overview of the Installation Process
