seems like Office 2011 is compatible with 32-bit systems only, I guess this can be the reason of your problem.

I also get this problem, even when booting into 32 bit & 64 bit, both give the same error message! :S

Yours is the one where it's like this can only be installed on 10.5.8 or later? I've also got 10.6.5 and I'm encountering the same problem.

I know someone is probably going to comment on this like "Use open office office sucks" we aren't asking for that comment, some people need this to work in order to do work etc. If anyone has a valid solution then please post it here.

What about iWork? It's much cheaper than office.

This topic is about office, I'm sure others are aware of iWork but I'd like a solution to Office only and not an alternative :P

and why not to contact their support and to ask about this bug? If you both have the same issue - this means it is not unique, maybe it is Office's glitch? If you are installing Office on compatible os's - it must work, if it doesn't - this is a nice reason to chat with Microsoft support representatives:)

Do you think they'd care if we told them were running Mac OS X on non apple hardware?

YES IT CAN! :D :D I HAVE FOUND THE SOLUTION! IM RUNNING 10.6.6 on a D420 DEll and a X60 IBM TABLET.

It's your kernel. Simply put, the kernel. Some of those patched kernels are real garbage i must tell you.

I replaced the "legacy_kernel" I was using from 10.6.6 package i got from KEXT dot com

with, a kernel from my bootloader "IbootRC5r700.iso" I also used 10.6.6. of sleepenabler.Kext.. (be warned...if you want to test out kernels, remove the sleepenabler just in case) and thats it. It install flawlessly.. in 32 or 64 bit mode.



WE ARE HACKINGTOSH! AND WE RULE!
