  1. Crazycat: What install did you use for ML? I have the same mobo and wanted with SL and wanted to reformat to new osX. Thanks for the info.
  2. Leopard installed! WOOT!

    Yo! Glad I found you guys! I have a Dell 8400 3.24Ghz P4 1g Ram, 150g internal SATA drive and Nvidia 6800 video card. You would think among the three of us we could get Kalyway Leopard 10.5.1 installed? Here's as far as I have gotten. I upgraded my Bios to A09 (the latest). I can't find anything to modify in the Bios that fits Dune's recommendations. Only CPU choice is hyperthreading. I'm installing a good DVD image (I think) to an external hard drive formatted as GUID. The installation verification is good. Have gotten to reboot loop several times with customization. (no joy). Also have gotten installations to blinking cursor but not beyond. I'm stumped and have gone back to the basics. The compatible computers wiki shows Kalyway's Leopard install should work on a Dimension 8400 "out of the box" but no details. I have decided to leave the BIOS with factory settings. I am interpreting "out of the box" to mean no customization except related to booting your partition choice (either MBR or GUID) as well. Have lately tried install with no customization except the last one relating to boot Guid. Last attempt ended with installation failed with big yellow warning screen. Read tonight that this may be due to a partition name with spaces in it. Will go back tomorrow and rename Mac OSx86 to MacOSx86 and see if it works. My reading indicates if you can get a good boot to Leopard, you can then go fix the drivers. Hope this helps. I'm not there but feel lucky. Unfortunately, I'm at work and won't be able to work on this until tomorrow (maybe). Keep in touch!
