Arrow iATKOS vs. Regular full install from a retail disk & boot disk - 06-21-2009, 01:55 AM

New to hackin osx and a noob to osx itself

I was just wondering why some would not use the iatkos instead(assuming they own the os)

I don't own the os yet but do have an oem copy from my old ibook. i installed iatkos and i cant get the wireless drivers to work properly on my dell mini.
this guy did it on youtube (at about 2:00 in)

too blurry to see what he was doing and what that file was called. any idea?

the battery life doesnt seem to be that good on osx. i think it was way better on windows xp pro, but maybe i didnt do the install right.

Why is it so limited to find info on iatkos and the dell mini 9?

i resolved my issue by going to this kickass detail site

Yea, you use dellefi in the retail install also.

From my limited knowledge. iAtkos is for installing OSX on computers that wouldn't normally be able to run a retail copy of OSX. Since the Mini 9 is so compatible with it, however, it's really easy to just pop the retail disc in, and install. The benefit to it is that everything just works.
