I just got the 10.4.6 Jas DVD. it installs perfectly when i disable my alc882 audio in the bios. I have one problem which seems to be happening with a lot of people. the thing is, i am not dual booting with XP. What i do is create a FAT32L partiton which fills up my whole disk and I choose for it to be primary and it is activated. Once I install and restart i always get the HFS+ partition error. Can someone please help, i;ve never had this problem with any earlier releases.

If you have a blank drive dedicated to OS X, use a Linux Live CD and boot from it. You can use gparted and wipe the whole drive. Then do the normal OS X install you are used to doing.

Have you tried installing to a completely blank drive? So use a windows 98 or xp install disk to re-partition it to one partition and then use the install disk. Make sure you choose the jas patches when you install. I forgot this the first time and ended up having to do it all over again . Also make sure the drive your installing from is set to master as this can cause all sorts of problems.
