Hi, I followed this guide ( http://forum.insanel...showtopic=86167 ) to install leoprad from the retail dvd.
All seems to work fine, except the firewire ports of my mobo.
My system is:

Asus p5w dh deluxe

intel q6600

geforce gts 8800 640 mb

When I attach an external firewire hard disk, the system doesn't recognize it. If I unplug it, the system crash.

Any clues?

It's strange with the kalyway install I got no problems.
With the retail install the firewire is recognized (I can see it in the network prefernces) but I'm unable to attach any external device.

I did also a clean install in terminal from an other leo partition - everything working
have a look in my specs - maybe you see a difference

It's almost the same system.
By the way sleep doesn't work and yesterday I tried my camcorder on the firewire port and now it works.
The external hard disk isn't recognized.
The same disk on an original imac works perfectly.

Do you mean that I have to check in my bios settings?
There jmicron is enabled.
Maybe is there a special kext?

I did a new fresh install and now the external disk is recognized.
The strange thing is that it's mounted after a bit long.

I still have problems, the disk is mounted only in read mode.
If I plug the same disk using the usb port alli si ok.
