iATKOS S3 V2 - How to Create a Bootable USB Installer for PC
Have you ever dreamed of having a Mac computer but couldn't afford one? Or maybe you wanted to customize your own Mac with different hardware components? Or maybe you just wanted to try out macOS without buying a new machine? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you might be interested in creating a Hackintosh.

A Hackintosh is a non-Apple computer that runs macOS, usually by modifying the software or hardware to make it compatible with the operating system. Hackintoshes can offer some benefits, such as lower cost, customization, and higher efficiency, but they also have some drawbacks, such as specific hardware requirements, instability, lack of support, and legal issues.
One way to create a Hackintosh is to use a customized version of macOS that is designed for different PC configurations. These versions are called Iatkos . One of the most popular Iatkos versions is Iatkos S3 V2 Dmg, which is based on Mac OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.3. It is designed to work on Intel-based PCs with various hardware components. It comes as a disk image file (.dmg) that can be burned to a DVD or written to a USB drive. It also includes a bootloader called Chameleon that allows you to boot the installer and the operating system from the same media.
Mac OS X Snow Leopard is the seventh major release of macOS, Apple's desktop and server operating system for Macintosh computers. It was released in 2009 and it introduced some new features and improvements, such as 64-bit support, Grand Central Dispatch, OpenCL, QuickTime X, and more. It was also the last version of macOS to support PowerPC applications through Rosetta, and the last version to be distributed primarily through optical disc.
In this article, I will show you how to install Iatkos S3 V2 Dmg on your PC and enjoy the benefits of macOS without buying a Mac. However, before we begin, you need to make sure that your PC meets some requirements and that you have some tools ready.
To install Iatkos S3 V2 Dmg on your PC, you need to have the following:
A PC with an Intel processor that supports SSE2 and SSE3 instructions. You can check this by using CPU-Z or similar software.
At least 1 GB of RAM (2 GB or more recommended).
At least 10 GB of free hard disk space (20 GB or more recommended).
A DVD drive or a USB port and a USB flash drive (8 GB or more).
A monitor with a resolution of at least 1024 x 768 pixels.

You also need to have the following tools:
The Iatkos S3 V2 Dmg file, which you can download from SourceForge or Internet Archive.
A software to burn the .dmg file to a DVD or write it to a USB drive. If you are using macOS, you can use Disk Utility or TransMac. If you are using Windows, you can use ImgBurn or Win32 Disk Imager.
A software to edit the BIOS settings of your PC. You can use the built-in BIOS setup utility or a third-party software like AMIBCP.
Creating the installer
The first step to install Iatkos S3 V2 Dmg on your PC is to create a bootable installer from the .dmg file. You can do this by using either macOS or Windows, depending on what operating system you have access to.
If you have a Mac or another Hackintosh running macOS, you can use Disk Utility or TransMac to create a bootable USB installer from the .dmg file. Here are the steps:
Insert a blank DVD or an empty USB flash drive into your Mac or Hackintosh.
