it looks like the simplest way to install Leo..

I have a Macbook with Leo. Can I use it to install leopard to a SATA hard disk and then to boot my hackintosh?

Thanks.

Hey, I got almost done with your method but had one question. At the end you say you deleted the InteEFI.kext file, but I didn't find that file in the extensions folder. The only one I found was AppleEFIRuntime.kext, but deleting it makes it hang on bootup. I had no problem with the dsmos or SMBios kexts though.

I haven't tried putting the
AppleEFIRuntime.kext file back to see if it'll boot just fine, I'll do that tonight when I get home. If I don't need to worry about the InteEFI kext file then I just need to know. If I get this question answered then I'll have successfully completed it your way and I can post more detailed instructions for everyone as that seems to be needed.

Nice ls8. I did the same then: replace AppleSMBios, install dsmos, and removed AppleEFIRuntime. But, mine freezes on boot with the little red X through the middle of the screen. I'll go home and play a little with it tonight and see what's making it crash. Will -v at the F8 menu show me why it's crashing on boot? Oh and the flat file install I did of Leopard had my X1900XT working but only at 1024x768 as it thought that's all my display could do. How do you fix that one?

Thanks everyone for figuring out these cool tricks to simplify the Leopard PC install!

You are Right Its AppleEFIRuntime.kext(Type mistake was excited to see Retail DVD working ;) ) that need to be removed

Wait a sec, you used an actual retail non-patched Leopard DVD?

This works just great! Everything works, I just had to edit IOnetworkingfamily.kext to get network working and add NVinject for my graphics card.

The one thing I struggled with was how to install the DVD from within Leopard. I opened the DVD in Pacifist selected what I wanted and installed it to another disk. It certainly took more than 5 minutes, I guess it took about 90 minutes. Could I have done it differently to make it go faster?

I updated to 10.5.1 without any problems.

Thanks for the help!

Hmm i think OSInstall.mpkg can only be opened from within Leopard...

So there are three methods to install it:

- with a "real" intel-mac (ppc won't work because it wont install the system on a guid drive)
- with the flat image of leopard
- or with tiger and pacifist

i tried the last since i only have an old ppc G5... pacifist was extremely slow... especially the part where it checks all the files. it took about 2 hours to finish. but something went wrong. i think i made a mistake when the app asked me to overwrite things because some files weren't completely installed and so it couldn't boot up. now i'm trying it again...

Hey ya,
Im having trouble trying to run this native off a Tiger disk....the terminal commands for the open osinstall.mpkg dont work....the previous command cd volume etc etc works...just step 2 in terminal doesnt

Can I run a install via 2 DVD drives....one opened with terminal...then direct the install to the retail Leopard disc via terminal as per your first post?

Whats the steps to install from DVD?

Yes, I did. It requires another version of MacOS running. I had 10.4.11 on second partition, installed 10.5 from original DVD using Pacifist 2.5.1, then upgraded to 10.5.1 using automatic software update. You can use either the original 8GB retail DVD, or you can just use an image of that DVD. You just mount the ISO (or DMG) image and install from that mounted image using Pacifist.

Congrats, what is your about This Mac Showing ?

Terminal do much faster instillation than pacifist without checking the packages.Also you an use DMG of the retail Leopard DVD ( thats what I did with Terminal and installed on two or three times while testing .It took around 5-7 mins each time)

Did you installed 10.5 on partition already had Tiger ?
