My Computer Specs:

Motherboard: Abit IS7
BIOS: 6.00 PG (03/30/05)
Chipset: Intel Springdale i865PE
Memory: 1 GB x2 PC3200 DDR (2 GB)
Video Card: eVGA 6800 GT (256MB)
Optical Drive: LITE-ON SOHW-1673S

Hard Drive #1 - Western Digital 36 GB / 10,000 RPM / SATA
This is used for my Windows installation

Hard Drive #2 - Seagate 160 GB / 7,200 RPM / SATA
This is used to store my music

Hard Drive #3 - Seagate 250 GB / 7,200 RPM / IDE
This is used to store all my ISOs, EXEs, and so on

Hard Drive #4 - Western Digital 37 GB / 7,200 RPM / IDE
This is where I install all my Windows applications

Hard Drive #5 - 80 GB / 7,200 RPM / IDE
This is where I WANT to install Mac OS X Leo., and I already have Fedora 9 installed. It is partitioned into two separate 40 GB partitions.

Windows XP Professional is installed.
Fedora 9 is installed.
I want to install Mac OS X Leo.

As for my problem:

I burned the disc just fine, and boot up with just fine. The problem comes when the first time I booted up and did the whole -v thing. It worked, and I no problem getting the the GUI part of the installation. From there I couldn't figure out how to just use the one partition that I wanted. So I exited out early and booted up Windows, and messed around in the Disk Management. After that when I try to boot back up with the disk the installer freezes up on the text part. Here is what I get:

AppleIntelPIIXPATA: 80-conductor cable not detected on secondary channel
I get this error two times on my screen one right on top of the other.

Resetting IOcatalogue.
Matching service count = 0

I get this "error" (if it is one) five times one on top of another.

Jul 21 04:48:06 localhost kextd[47]: root filesystem is read-only; skipping kernel link data generation

SAM Multimedia: READ or WRITE failed, SENSE_KEY = 0x06, ASC = 0x29, ASCQ = 0x00

Jul 21 04:49:23 localhost diskarbitrationd[44]: CoreRAIDServer [43]:23555 not responding

FREEZE RIGHT HERE


If anyone can help me out I would be most greatful. I will keep messing around with it, but I really have tried everything I could think of.

Are you using an old ide cable? cable select wont work if you are not--modern ide cables have 80 conductors(wires) rather than 40, and maybe osx has to see 80 coductor cables--

By the way I am getting the exact same error on my laptop when installing iatkos 4---its a toshiba p700, tried burning on different burners etc, please let me know if you get this sorted,

Thanks

I fixed the AppleIntelPIIXPATA: 80-conductor cable not detected on secondary channel error by using a more up to date IDE cable. But with no luck I am still getting the freeze up in the same place.
