  • Burn the ATKOS v1.0i R2 to a DVD+/-R at 4X speed (DO NOT USE DVD+/-RW OTHERWISE YOU'LL SCREW UP)
  • Open diskpart and type the following:

    list disk
    select disk x [x is the number of the disk where you want to install your leopard on it]
    list partition [Now diskpart should tell you there's no partition on the disk, if it show up a partition go ahead and type delete partition]
    create partition primary id=af
    active
    exit


  • Slide in your iATKOS V1.0i R2 DVD and reboot the computer
  • Go into BIOS and set these options:

    • HPET: Enabled
    • Jmicron SATA Controller: Disable
    • Onboard IEEE1394: Disable [you can enable it after the installation]

  • Boot from the DVD. Press F8 when it asks you and enter the options "-v" [If it doesn't load/freeze/kernel panic boot with "-v -f cpus=1"]
  • When it is loaded, open Disk Utility from the Utilities menu
  • select your hard drive and click on partition
  • On Volume Schme select 1 partition and enter your desire name,
  • On format select as MAC OS X Extended (Journaled)

      Select the AMD/nForce fix driver
      Select the NVInject driver that applies to you

  • Once you're done click install
  • Go ahead and skip DVD verification if you want [Installation might take from 30min to 1 hour, so relax, get a cup of coffee]
  • When the installation is done reboot your computer

    --FOR DUAL-BOOTING--

    • ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    • Boot in to XP/Vista
    • Download EasyBCD 1.7.1
    • Install and open the program
    • On the Add/Remove Entries click on Mac OS X and select x86
    • Enter the name you want example "Mac OS X Leopard"
    • Click add entry
    • Reboot your computer
      ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  • Press F8 when it ask you and boot with "-v"
  • If you get kernel panic/freezes boot with "-v -f cpus=1"
  • After the system has loaded, you will see a Leopard Welcome Video if you have selected the appropriate video driver.
  • Enter informations
    TaDa!!! You now have a working Leopard Desktop!!!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

But wait not yet, you might notice the performance is very slow, because you did not enable UDMA yet.

Download the NForceATA Driver to your desktop [Thanks to medevil]

Open terminal and type the following:
sudo -s
	cp -R ~/desktop/AppleNForceATA.kext /system/library/extensions/
	chmod -R 755 /system/library/extensions/AppleNForceATA.kext
	chown -R root:wheel /system/library/extensions/AppleNForceATA.kext
	rm -f /system/library/extensions.*
	diskutil repairpermissions /  (might take a while, be patient)
		exit


To get Line In to work:
you need the ALC883 8.8.1 Audio patch [Thanks to Skippy] (I know is for kernel 8.8.1 but work great under leopard without any problem)

To install, click on the installer, and install it. [DO NOT CHOOSE 3port_digital, LEAVE IT AS 3port OR IT WILL CRASH YOUR SYSTEM!]

Now reboot your leopard

You should notice your leopard load faster, higher performance! Plus your Line-In is working now!


--FOR CPUS=1 ISSUE--
this is for users that can't boot with dual-core/quad-core

NON-EFI Users:
download the P5N-E SLI Fix Patch
Drag both "mach_kernel" and IOHDIXController.kext to the desktop

Open Terminal and type:
sudo -s
	cp -R ~/desktop/mach_kernel /mach_kernel
	cp -R ~/desktop/IOHDIXController.kext /system/library/extensions/
	chmod -R 755 /system/library/extensions/IOHDIXController.kext
	chown -R root:wheel /system/library/extensions/IOHDIXController.kext
	rm -f /system/library/extensions.*
	diskutil repairpermissions /  (might take a while, be patient)
	exit
	sudo reboot


EFI Users:
download the 10.5.1 EFI Nforce Kernel and drag mach_kernel to the desktop

Open Terminal and type:
sudo -s
	cp -R ~/desktop/mach_kernel /mach_kernel
	diskutil repairpermissions /  (might take a while, be patient)
	exit
	sudo reboot

EDIT:

How to easily replace your Leopard kernel from Windows [Thanks to revolutionbr]


1- Get MediaFour MacDrive 7, it's a program that allows Windows to recognize and navigate through HFS+ partitions. This makes really easy to backup kexts, kernel and any other file from your leopard installation, even if it's broken.
Posted Image





2- Open your Leopard drive and right on the root, you'll find mach_kernel, which is your kernel file. Backup the file anywhere you want (it's okay to backup it on a windows partition though) and then overwrite it with your new kernel file.
Posted Image





3- Reboot and enter in Leopard using -v -f flag.

4- When back in Leo, enter the terminal app and enter the following:
sudo -s
(enter your password)
diskutil repairpermissions / 
reboot

5- Wait for reboot and enjoy your just patched OSX.

If you have any kernel panic or booting problem, just get back to windows and slip back your old kernel file.




This time, boot with -v -f (no more cpus=1! And next time you can boot without kernel flag!)
Now both of your core works! And If you run some 3D Apps such as StuntMANIA!Pro Racing game, you'll notice increase in framerate.

Apple update:
Go ahead and install the lastest updates. Go ahead and install the security update 2007-009 Frontrow 2.1.1, iTune 7.6, Apple Remote Desktop, and Quicktime. I've tested it, it won't crash your system.


LAN Driver:
There's no stable LAN driver available at this time, MikeINns is working on the driver for leopard, click here to check it out. You still can install the tiger version under leopard but under heavyload it will crash your system.



Final:
Now you have a working MAC OS X Leopard on your P5N-E SLI! Oh ya BTW, Enable your firewire in BIOS if you are going to use it! ;)

128GB Problem + Time Machine without additional Hard Drive

Now after the installation you'll only be able to use 128GB of space even you have 160GB or up and already installed AppleNForceATA.kext.

to solve this issues, we are going to create a new partition using your leftover space and merge it into the Leopard partition.

For example, you have a 149GB hard drive, and leopard is 128GB, we are going to merge the leftover 21GB in to leopard.

boot into your windows and open diskpart

type the following

list disk
select disk x [x is the disk where you have your leopard installed]
list partition [you should only see a partition with size of 128GB
[/b]]

*To merge the whole leftover disk space:
create partition primary id=af

*For Time Machine:
create partition primary id=af size=XXXXmb [X is the size you want to merge in to leopard Example: size=20000mb (20GB)]
create partition primary id=af [the leftover space for Time Machine]
list partition
select partition 1
active
exit


reboot into your leopard, open disk utility

Now you should see a new partition call disk1s2 and disk1s3

Name disk1s2 to "merge" and erase it

Name disk1s3 to "Time Machine" and erase it

Next open up Terminal

Type the following:
diskutil list [make sure you see both your leopard partition (disk1s1) and the new created merge partition (disk1s2)]
		 
		sudo diskutil mergePartitions "Journaled HFS+" New disk1s1 disk1s2 [with quote]

Bingo! Now you be able to use your whole hard drive.

To turn Time Machine on open Time Machine from your dock, and choose your "Time Machine" partition that we just created.

Now you have Time Machine without additional hard drive.


Prevent Windows Hard Drive from mounting in Leopard.

click here for guide (Thanks to Rammjet)


Instant Loop Problem
If you tried to boot your leopard but it just keep restart, here's the solution:

Slide yout iATKOS DVD back in [Don't forget to use "cpus=1" if you need to!]

when is loaded click next and click customize

uncheck everything except "SSE2 SSE3 Kernel"

Install it

reboot

Now you should be able to boot into your leopard [[Don't forget to use "cpus=1" if you need to!]


USB Flash Drive Problem:
If you can't mount your USB Flash Drive, follow the steps below:

Download the USB Fix (Thanks to TheTimester)

Extract it to the desktop

Drag both System.kext and IOUSBMassStorageClass.kext to /system/library/extension

replace it and when ask for password type so

open disk utility and repair permission

reboot

Now your USB Flash Drive should be able to mount.

Black Screen blinking cursor ( blinking _ )
After i installed leopard following these directions i got a black screen with a blinking cursor, Leopard would not boot...
It turns out the partition was not activated

to activate the partition you have to follow these steps
you first have to find out what the name of the hard drive that has osx installed ( not the name but what position it is)
to do this boot with the installed dvd then > utilities > disk utilities
Right click on the drive that has the os x installation and click get more info
you then will see what the disk is called, mine is rdisk0
now reboot to the dvd and hit f8 when the countdown begins
type in -s hit enter
wait for the prompt which will allow you to type
then type

fdisk -e /dev/rdisk0 <----------- rdisk0 should be the name of your disk
flag 1 <---------- as long as OS X was installed on the first partition of the disk this should stay as 1 if not change accordingly
update
write (if asks something, answer y)
quit
reboot

-------------------------
This will activate the partition and you should no longer have the boot error with the blinking cursor
if this does not work try using the darwin bootloader

Okay... I'm having problems and it seems that I'm creating more by messing with things. I'm running a P5N-E with a Q6600 Intel Quad Core and an 80gb WD Hard Drive for the install. I also have a SATA 250gb WD drive dual booting Vista and XP.

Questions:

EFI: It seems that when I do EFI it won't boot to it rather it will give me a "chain booting error" in EasyBSD or a blinking cursor when directly booting to the drive. Went though the steps above to set the partition but it didnt seem to work. In fact now EasyBSD is giving me an error every time I start it up in Vista Saying my MBR is messed up. :(

Darwin: Do I need the SSE2/SSE3 Kernal Patch checked during the install even though have a quad core CPU? I tried without it and I finally got leopard to the booting screen, where it told me to restart... so i did and it has told me to restart every time i boot since.

Anyways i'm about to give up but im thinking of giving it one more shot... What are the best settings for my Q6600 Quad Core?

No the SSE2/SSE3 Kernel is mostly for Non Core 2 processor, If you have a core 2 don't select this one. Unless when you boot into your mac you get an instant boot error..but that will be wierd if you have a core 2

If you get the (Gray Screen of Death) which tell you to restart, boot with -v -f cpus=1 as mentioned in the guide.

128GB Problem + Time Machine without additional Hard Drive

Now after the installation you'll only be able to use 128GB of space even you have 160GB or up and already installed AppleNForceATA.kext.

to solve this issues, we are going to create a new partition using your leftover space and merge it into the Leopard partition.

For example, you have a 149GB hard drive, and leopard is 128GB, we are going to merge the leftover 21GB in to leopard.

boot into your windows and open diskpart

type the following

list disk
select disk x [x is the disk where you have your leopard installed]
list partition [you should only see a partition with size of 128GB[/i][/b]]

*To merge the whole leftover disk space:
create partition primary id=af

*For Time Machine:
create partition primary id=af size=XXXXmb [X is the size you want to merge in to leopard Example: size=20000mb (20GB)]
create partition primary id=af [the leftover space for Time Machine]
list partition
select partition 1
active
exit


reboot into your leopard, open disk utility

Now you should see a new partition call disk1s2 and disk1s3

Name disk1s2 to "merge" and erase it

Name disk1s3 to "Time Machine" and erase it

Next open up Terminal

Type the following:
diskutil list [make sure you see both your leopard partition (disk1s1) and the new created merge partition (disk1s2)]
		  
		 sudo diskutil mergePartitions "Journaled HFS+" New disk1s1 disk1s2 [with quote]

Bingo! Now you be able to use your whole hard drive.

To turn Time Machine on open Time Machine from your dock, and choose your "Time Machine" partition that we just created.

Now you have Time Machine without additional hard drive.


Prevent Windows Hard Drive from mounting in Leopard.

Hi, I would love to try this osx so started to follow your guide
Now I am very new to mac, but not to Pc,s
I have a P5N-E SLI, E4400 C2D, 4GB ram, 8800gtx and a empty 160GB (SATA) drive to play with Started off following along

1. Download the iATKOS v1.0i R2 from TPB -

DONE
2

. Burn the ATKOS v1.0i R2 to a DVD+/-R at 4X speed

DONE

3. Open diskpart and type the following: list disk select disk x [x is the number of the disk where you want to install your leopard on it] list partition [Now diskpart should tell you there's no partition on the disk, if it show up a partition go ahead and type delete partition] create partition primary id=af active exit

DONE

4. Slide in your iATKOS V1.0i R2 DVD and reboot the computer

DONE

5. Go into BIOS and set these options: * HPET: Enabled * Jmicron SATA Controller: Disable * Onboard IEEE1394: Disable [you can enable it after the installation]

DONE

6. Boot from the DVD. Press F8 when it asks you and enter the options "" [If it doesn't load/freeze/kernel panic boot with "-v -f cpus=1"]

HRM, problems here,

-v will send me in a reboot loop without doing anything else
-v -f cpus=1 - will Load a load of stuff then will stop at the end with a screen full of text the last being waiting on root


I'm thinking its because I'm trying to do it with a sata drive?

I tried the (KALYWAY_LEO_10.5.1intel_SSE2_SSE3) but hit the same problem

So is there anyone who can help me to get to step 7? :P

Hello! Great Guide! I need help, This is my computer specification:

MB: Asus P5N-E SLI - Nvidia 650i Chipset (Bios 807) - MCP51 - 430/410i
OS: iATKOS V1.0r2 Leopard 10.5.1 9b18
CPU: Pentium Core 2 Duo E6420 2.26 Ghz
RAM: 2 x 1GB KinstonX @ 800mhz Dual Channel
VGA: EVGA Geforce 8600 GTS 256MB
PATA: Western Digital IDE 160GB

LAN: Linksys WRT54G (Ralink 61 or RT2500 I dont remember)
LAN2: nForce Gigabit LAN Controller [Marvell 88E1116 Chip] -
Audio: RealTek ALC883 Sound/Mic-
Display: LCD Samsung SyncMaster 710N 17'

The Problem is:
I install the Iatkos 1.0iR2 correctely with your guide,(cpus=1 -v) then de installation is over, and reboot Black screen blinking cursor then insert Gparted Cd to activate the Partition with boot flag..
Then appear Darwin boot, I press F8 and "cpus=1 -v " .....mac booting, loading kext.......and "REBOOT LOOP" (I cant see nothing error mesagge) What I do?

sorry for my english..

Thanks!


Put your iATKOS DVD back in and boot with "-v cpus=1"
then select "SSE2 SSE3 Kernel" and install it
reboot and now you should able to pass the instant loop.

No there's no way you can install iATKOS v1.0i R2 on SATA Drive at this time. You need a IDE Hard Drive as mentioned in the guide.



Hey! i'm useing the p5n-e mobo aswell and i hear your bios version makes a bit of a difference so Caminoz which Bios Version are you useing?

I'm using bios 0803

I only select "SSE2 SSE3 Kernel" and no more? EFI bootloader(Complete-3 items o Partial? )? Nvidia Inject for my 8600gts? . because you no select SSE2 SSE3 Kernel in your guide?, what is the diference?

Thansk!

Put your iATKOS DVD back in and boot with "-v cpus=1"
then select "SSE2 SSE3 Kernel" and install it
reboot and now you should able to pass the instant loop.

Neeed help!! Leopard was working fine, however today i booted back to it from windows and its stuck on the darwin bootloaded asking me to type booting options. I hit enter and it comes right back to that screen in about .0003 seconds. I tried -v -x -f cpus=1 did not work. -x does not work -v does not work nothing works it always comes back to this screen. I tried booting the installation from the dvd it did not work same problem stuck at the darwin bootloader. I booted the dvd to the installer and tried repairing disk permissions using disk util and tried verifying the disk and it all checked out fine.

Installation CD: Iatkos
OS: Leopard 10.5.1
Mother Board : Asus P5NE - SLI
IDE hard drive
