  1. OK, just picked up a used USB keyboard, so once the reinstall finishes, I should have a way to access the terminal. Forgot the system specs: Intel Celeron M 1.70 GHz "Dalton 1024", has SSE2, no SSE3 1.5 GB DDR2 RAM ATI Radeon Xpress 200M video PS/2 based keyboard and trackpad Atheros AR5005G wireless Realtek 8139 wired ethernet Don't really care if PCMCIA works, nobody really uses it anymore, same with the modem.
  2. Got an older Toshiba laptop for holidays, thought I'd finally try to build a Hackintosh out of it. Trying the Kalyway 10.5.2 install disc, as that's the only one so far I could get to boot. Took overnight, but it installed. This morning I had a "select your language" screen, but the keyboard and mouse wouldn't work (no USB keyboard, just the laptop's - I understand there's a fix, but that's later), USB mouse also wouldn't work, so I rebooted. Now have "H0000000 - HFS+ Partition Error". Tried resetting the Partition ID to AF, it was already set. Tried fixing the MBR in Partition Manager - also didn't work. I'm now reinstalling Kalyway 10.5.2 all over again, after reformatting the partition in Disk Utility. If I get that error again after rebooting, I'm stuck. I really don't have the funds to go and get a USB keyboard right now, just for this. Am I even starting all of this right, with the later distros out there? I originally wanted to install SL on this laptop, but the iATKOS S3 wouldn't boot. I have the retail SL DVD. Is there some required reading I'm missing?
