 Hi thanks alot for this tutorial! It worked perfectly for me!

Unfortunately now i want to install garageband but it wont let me instal to 10.5.5 - it wants a min of 10.5.6... I tried the 10.5.8 upgrade and it went wrong




So i got iDeneb 10.5.8 and i had problems with my USB and PS/2...The PS/2 problem was fixed by using the appropriate patch but MY USB problem is still there...

The problem im having is that the USB ports on the right side of my notebook work, whereas the USB ports on the left do not! any ideas?

oh im using a HP pavilion dv-5

Hey there, this whole site has been very helpful including this tutorial. However, I've been trying to get Mac os x Leopard 10.5.2 Kalway to run on my PC, and having no luck. I've created a 50 GB partition and put i as HFS. When I boot from the disk, everything runs fine, until I get to Disk Utility. When I click Disk Utility, I only see the disk drive, and the DVD with Leopard on it. I do not see the partitioned hard drive space that I created for the mac os, and I've tried two dvds already, and went through many, MANY sites.

I'll gladly accept any help, and if it's something simple, I apologize. I'm new to this sort, but really would love to figure it out. Any help is appreciated, if you need to know anything else about how I'm running the computer etc, then feel free to ask! And sorry if this is the wrong section to ask, if so, just ignore me.

Thanks,
Stephen

What would I do if I wanted to do this but I already have Mac OS X on my netbook? I cannot install Windows XP for some weird reason.

I managed to make quiet a simple Dualboot with Windows 7 and osx86 iDeneb 1.6 lite.

I had 2 partitions.

Partition nr 1. 20gb for OSX86
Partition nr 2. 100gb for windows 7

1. Install windows 7 on Partition 2. it makes a system partition 100mb and then win 7 partition of the rest.
2. I created a hfs+ partition with Ultimate Boot CD www.ultimatebootcd.com/
3. Installed iDeneb 1.6 lite on Partition Nr 1.

I couldnt boot at first. i ran the install cd and only installed Chameleon V1.
and then i could boot Win 7 from the system 100mb one.
