Someone should really add iDeneb 10.5.5. to that Leopard list. From my point of view, it is highly recommended on amd's (Asus M2V).

I'm sick of searching!

I've the DVD, Kalyway 10.5.2 Amd + intel release and I'm using a Dell XPS M 1530. It just doesn't boot into the CD. After I select the boot from CD option, it just shows a blank screen for sometime and boots into windows. This I'm guessing is because the PC couldn't boot from that particular CD. Any reasons why?

seems like i can help you
well make sure the disc is working like try to boot on another computer.
other than that it should work really just make sure press f12 and choose CD.

if it waits sometime and boots into windows that's probably mean that disc is corrupted/have missing files etc.etc.
try to download another kalyway 10.5.2.

agreed. I also think the 'Newbie FAQ' and 'State of the Art' posts could both benefit a little from an update to the current state of play in the community, especially now that just about any new user should be able to install a genuine Mac-compatible installation using a retail Leopard DVD with a master pre-loaded BootCD containing the latest Voodoo XNU kernel and lifeboat kexts running from the EFI partition.

I am performing a new install of Mac OS X from Kalyway 10.5.2, i had a question regarding the HDD format. Should it be in NTFS or FAT32 format ??

NTFS?
Your choices are HFS+, Fat and i think ext2.

But no NTFS AFAIK, just go with HFS+

I suggest that instead of using that workaround, you should try to find a way to boot it normally and still have everything working :)

I am looking at Gigabyte motherboards that are in the Wiki HCL.
GA-EG31-S2
GA-G31M-ES2L
What does the E represent in each of the motherboards and will that make a difference whether or not I can Hackintosh it?

I already have a Hackintosh, but I want to build a more powerful one. I am not a Hackintosh expert by any means.

I am not versed in computers but I have a hackintosh running leopard 10.5.2 with 4 gigs of ram, intel quad core 2.4 ghz
ddr2 800, nvidia 8500 gt 512 mb. 500gb SATA-II.

I accidentally did a software update and now it won't boot up. It says I have a panic debugger and prompts me to shutdown on boot. I was told to boot in dvd and remove the appleintelcpumanagement kext.

I have the mac retail leopard osx but im not able to boot in dvd for some reason it won't let me. I changed the boot priority in the BIOS so i know it's not that.

Any suggestions? Im not a programmer in the least bit so any walk through would be helpful...thanks in advance
