I've been trying to find a complete compatible OSx86 distribution form my Dell Optiplex GX620. All the one that I have found so far (iDebneb or iATKOS) have failed, the 2 iDebneb torrents must be missing files, because BitTorrent stops and shows and error message saying files are missing, and all I end up with is a 356MB file that is usless, the iATKOS doesn't seem to exist or there are no seeds.
Can anyone tell me where I can find a full and complete compaitable OSx86 distribution ISO torrent file for the following:

Thanks I saw the link talking about using Boot-132 CD and a retail copy of Mac OS (which I do own a legal copy of Leopard 10.5.0 DVD) tried it and it didn't work, all I got was the gray Mac boot screen with the Apple logo. The hard drive I'm using doesn't have any operating system on it. Do I need to add the Master Boot Record to the drive first?

So it looks like the generic Boot-132 loader I found my be too generic from My Dell Optiplex GX620. If anyone knows where I can find a specific
Boot-132 for the Dell Optilplex GX620, please send me the link.

Try this http://www.insanelym...1 if you want Leopard
or this: http://www.insanelym...howtopic=275293 if you want Snow Leopard

Thanks but both of those look like they are talking about Snow Leopard, and the download links are DMG files, which a Intel PC can't make heads or tails of.
They didn't really answer my questions regarding a "Boot-132" loader specifically for the Dell GX620
