If you need XP and Leopard dualboot, you must set IDE instead of AHCI in BIOS (Windows XP have no support for AHCI).

The problem is that Leopard in IDE mode with this motherboard is too slow.

Ive edited AppleVIAATA.kext and AppleAHCIPort.kext to solve this !!! :P

xBench scores with this kexts are similar in IDE or AHCI mode, without this edited kext IDE score is half than AHCI mode.

Here is the kexts:

USE AT YOUR OWN RISK: I TRIED ONLY IN THIS MOTHERBOARD AND WORKED LIKE A CHARM !!!

Tell me if it works ok for you please...

Other solution (with 2 hard drives)

you can use nLite to create a new cd install of windows xp with ahci driver
and use F10 to select your drive (without bootloader) and so use GUID partition with Leopard

This is the solution i prefer for my Intel DQ965gf
