This partiton (let's call it 'A') where Leo is now, is too small for me. I need to move (or copy) Leopard to the another HFS+ partiton (let's call it 'B') which is larger.
So, what's the best way to do it? The Partiton A is 15gb large, and the partiton B is 50gb large.

. . do you have an HDD attached to the EZ-Backup ports?
no idea... but i have also a question: Disk Monitor shows a "320KB config disk" which can't be read - i guess this is from partitioning with windows. Is this "config disk" in any way important? Or can it be deleted/initialised so that i get rid of the annoying message after OS X finished booting?
 . . . sleep? Really? What are your BIOS-settings? . . S3 forced? Auto?

yes sleep works perfect now - i will make pictures of all bios settings... brb

works for p5w dh deluxe!!! you must simply tweak your bios setting!! execute disable fonction on enable ! Max cpuid on enable ! hpet enable! memory remap feature on enable! microcode updation on enable! acpi 2 support on yes ! acpi apic support on enablr!
voila! it' should work now!! with vanilla kernel!!

. . this is seriously duff info.
After countless hours of trying, I found out exactly what it was I needed. Thanks to KoolKal on the OSX86scene forums:
Actually you don't have to enable ACPI which is important if you are dual booting with XP (XP doesn't support ACPI, only Vista) but other than that, use the latest BIOS and you should be good to go!
XP Home/Pro is specifically designed to work best on ACPI platforms, & will install by default as an ACPI Uniprocessor PC . . . & XP Pro will install by default as an ACPI Multiprocessor PC (different XP kernel) if you have 2 or more cores/CPUs.
Because XP was designed to work with all sorts of elderly widgets, it is *possible* to install XP without ACPI [hit F5 at start on XP install, choose 'standard PC'] but this is a much less desirable HAL & the OS performs (even) worse.
For a modern [multicore] PC your only HAL choice other than ACPI is "MPS Multiprocessor PC" - which is wildly undesirable, having vary basic/no powersaving & tiresome interrupt configuration issues.
APIC = another level of h/w PIC specifically designed for SMP (multiprocessor) boxes - it is an extension to ACPI & gives more hardware interrupts to play with. This hardware should always be enabled unless you have a very buggy implementation of it.
ACPI rev 2 [backwards compatible to Rev 1] gives various goodies esp to do with memory configuration - you need this feature to enable memory remapping, & at a more exciting level need it to construct an SRAT if you are/were lucky enough to have a motherboard supporting NUMA [Non-Uniform Memory Allocation] - I remember this as a feature of SMP Opteron boxes giving them 11GB/s plus at a time when Xeon boxes were lucky to have 25% of this sort of memory bandwidth.

Also, I'm running the flat-image of leopard atm (not sure what install). Is it possible for me to just upgrade my current system? I have EFI installed and I'm running the ToH Speedstep kernel. What steps must I take to run the Vanilla kernel? Thanks again!!
