Your configuration is similar to mine

All sata ports should work, you´d use the first ports, but it will install
I use the 4 ports, first 2 for the HDs, and the last 2 for the 2 sata DVD-RW

Good luck


Thanks for the great guide. Very clear and easy to follow.

I have a P5KC and I'm going to try this method tonight.

I was using Kalyway before and it got ate by 10.5.6 update.

Will report back with progress.

Also, my motherboard has 2 black SATA plugs and 2 red SATA ports, does the P5K-SE have these as well? If so, does it matter which I use?

I still don't understand why the mouse jumps around sometimes. A good example is when i fire up iTunes, if I move the mouse, it will just lock up for a second, then continue working normally.

Any ideas? :unsure:

It happened once before, but the problem was my old usb mouse... now I got the mighty mouse from mac :)

try another mouse, or another usb port.. is it a big problem?

Well, it's annoying as hell. fire up itunes, moving around some document the mouse stops for a second. Sometimes it just jumps to a different location out of nowhere.

It was working ok with iDeneb 1.3. I'm reinstalling using this same method again as i fcked things up a bit, won't even boot single mode, and i don't want to waste time booting the dvd just to get to the terminal.

I'll post back if it continues behaving this way.

Also, i don't know if it's related but i have to unplug my USB mouse /keyboard everytime i boot to get them to work. Any idea why or how to fix it?

Post your complete system configuration, bios revision, etc...
Also, tell if you have used another kext apart from the ones I have provided in this post.

If you have installed efi v9, like in the tutorial I have posted, this problem should be fixed.. weird, very...

So i'm still downloading the 10.5.6 combo update trough software update. It was @ 77%, then i asked to install it started downloading again. Stupid SU. :)

Just for the record, this environment is working pretty nice (Leopard booting with the CD-Boot). Not slow in any way, besides graphics. No sluggishness on the mouse, keyboard and mouse booted up just fine.

Let's see after the 10.5.6 update and reboot. Cya!


EDIT

Bios rev: 0603

I'm on Leopard now, and the mouse is jumping around when opening itunes ;) Damn. At least the keyboard and mouse are working ok (looks like they are at least).

EDIT2:

I Noticed kernel_task spikes when i open itunes. Maybe that's somehow related.

How must the BIOS be configured in terms of AHCI / jMicron etc?

the mouse jumps all over the screen cuz of 10.5.6 geforce kexts... Downgrade to 10.5.5 geforce drivers and no lag.

Hi all,

will try the Boot132 installation soon.

Just two questions after reading the instructions:
1) Must the Sata Ports configured as AHCI in Bios? (Plain P5K with P5KR Bios - so it would be possible)
2) I do not understand if the Boot132 CD is needed after installation, or OSX starts without this CD inserted.

Well, if you can use AHCI, lucky you... it is faster... after instalation, you need the boot123 in order to get the system to boot, after you have installed the kexts there is no need of the boot cd...

USB set to auto, changed ports, still a no go.

it happens every once in a while, on disk/cpu intensive tasks.

Ahhhhhhhhh! :) on intensive tasks

I just tested in a friends p5k, havy loaded system.. it does not do that, and it has nothing to do with the nvidia kexts...

But, I still think it is a hardware problem (usb mouse), and still very wierd...

Let me ask again, have you applied the EFI V9? at least the shutdown and reconnect mouse and keyboard problem have stopped?

Yes, shutdown and mouse/keyboard reconect are working ok. :P

Its just this nasty stupid mouse problem, it didn't happen with ideneb.
I did install PC_EFI V9 Chameleon Edition, selected the box in the UInstaller.app.

When i use the 132-boot cd and swap to the retail it gives me the waiting for root error...

I use an ide dvd-drive, is it imperative to use a sata drive?

already set sata to ide, there are no options for ehci and bios is the latest.

Thanx for helping us out Jimmy!

I think that in your case, YES, that msg means that your IDE DVD is not working with the bootloader...
That should be fixed by using a sata dvd... try pioneer! :D

what mobo do you have?
