Try to reistall a second time, if it's fail try this :

Suppose that your installation is on /dev/disk0s2

- Install boot0 to the MBR:
fdisk -f boot0 -u -y /dev/rdisk0

- Install boot1h to the partition's bootsector:
dd if=boot1h of=/dev/rdisk0s2

- Install boot to the partition's root directory:
cp boot /

No need to use startupfiletool anymore!

Goodluck !

after using this tool I cannot find my com.apple.boot.plist file. If I mash f8 as its booting I can still get to the partition selection menu, choose the proper partition, and boot.

Is there a simple way to fix this?

Currently my solution is just to use the XXX distro that has pcefi 9 already, and it works great - but it'd be nice to have a good "post installation method" that worked smoothly.

Q:
Does anyone know whats the "-nowake" boot flag is for ?
Since i use PCEFI 9 i have problem with sleep.
Sleep works but at wakeup: rebooting
I use S3 (suspend to ram), (pmset) hibernate mode = 0, no sleepimage

You can boot normally (bypassing wake), when your sleepimage is corrupted or something else goes wrong

Thanks. I will try that.
Perhaps PCEFI V9 make an deeper sleep (hibermode =1) which saves status in RAM and also in an sleepimage.
My bios maybe not make the sleepimage possible and wakeup end in an reboot because no sleepimage found ?

Hi Trauma!,

I got my 10.5.5 working right now, I having simple and success upgrade from 10.5.2 to 10.5.6, wanted to upgrade to 10.5.6, and it would required EFI V8 and above, I do not install any EFI before, is it safe for me to install with my current system configuration, and most important, will it had anything to do with my Vista? Just afraid of getting crash or something.

Thanks ;)

EDIT: Thanks for the tools, it works like a charm for newbie like me! Had my 10.5.6 Combo update without a sweat.

I have a look like problem...
When the installation finishes, it restart the computer...
Then, boot into the DVD again...
After it enters automatically in a blank screen with an apple in the middle and cursor below with a no sign above the apple, and don't scape from that. It stops there...
Then, I decided to boot without the DVD, and it boots into the hard drive and appear the same three lines.
Finally, it won't boot with DVD and won't boot into hard drive. What could be?
