    Acer Aspire 5920G Leopard 10.5.2 Guide

    Finally i got this to work, so i though i would post what i did. Firstly, i this is to get Vista and Leopard Dual Booting on a Single HDD, and i am installing on an Acer 5920G. I used the iAtkos r2 DVD, and a copy of Vista DVD 1. I am assumoing Vista is already installed 2. Make sure you flash your bios using the bios at the top of this topic 2. Go into the disk management ( Start, right click on Computer, Manage) 3. On the left of the Management screen select the disk section 4. Now select a partition you want to use for Leopard. If you have got no free partitions, shrink one(right click, shrink, specify size you want) ou want at least 7GB, i freed up 10GB 5. Once you have got some spare space, partition it as FAT32, as this was the only way that i was able to detect the partition in the OSX installation 6. Make sure its all partitioned ok, and as FAT32 7. Now reboot with iAtkos r2 DVD 8. When you get to the booting screen, press F8 to use options, and boot using the following command: cpus=1 -v 9. Now go through the installation process 10. Select the Disk Utility from the option along the top 11. Select the partition you created earlier, and format it to Extended Journeled 12. Once done close the Disk Utility 13. Carry on through installation, and select customize 14. Select the Darwin EFI Bootloader and the SSE2 and SSE3 Kernel 15. Now finish the installation, select the partition you wanna install onto 16. Once installed, and the machine reboots, take out the DVD 17. When promted, press any key to load up advanced options 18. Now boot using the following command: cpus=1 19. You should get into the reg from screen now, congrats! 20. Play about with the new OS, and when ready, reboot 21. Now you have the problem of trying to get Vista to boot and Leopard 22. When rebooted, again press any key to get advanced options, and type following: cpus=1 -s 23. Then use the following command to make vista active partition: fdisk -e /dev/rdisk0 flag 1 quit reboot 24. Now you should have vista as active partition, so place vista DVD in drive when rebooting 25. Boot from the Vista DVD, and follow instructions to repair Vista 26. Now vista will boot fine. 27. Reboot machine with the iAtkos dvd in, and in advanced options, type this: cpus=1 -s 28. Then use the follwing command: fdisk -e /dev/rdisk0 flag X quit reboot 29. The X is the partition that you installed OSX on 30. Now you can dual boot Vista and Leopard. This is the exact way i did it, and worked fine

    Acer Aspire 5920G Leopard 10.5.2 Guide

    hey, i wondered if someone could help me out here. I am trying to dual boot Vista and Leopard. I already have vista installed. I have tried Kalyway and iAtkos installations, and i seem to get further with the iAtkos DVD so far. It installed, but when i start Leopard, it gets stuck on the loading screen with the apple logo and spinning wheel. If someone could either point me as to how to get past this stage that would be great. I assume that it is the graphics card causing this? Or if someone could guide me as to what i should select when installing to get a working boot? thankyou, o and btw i am using a single hdd, with a partition

  13. hey guys, been reading on here for a while, just registered though. I have tried installing osx86 leopard a few times now, but no luck. I was wondering if i could get some help. My spec is as follows: Aspire 5920g Processor: Core 2 Duo T5450 @ 1.66GHz nVidia 8600M GT 2GB Memory I have looked on the wiki, and seen that my laptop is listed there to be working with Leopard. Here is the link to that info: http://wiki.osx86project.org/wiki/index.ph...es#Aspire_5920g If someone could help me with what install medthod i should use? On the wiki it says Kalyway 10.5.1 w/EFI. I assume this is just a plain install with the Kalyway DVD i have got? Or should i add in some patches? If so, could you help me with that? The other reason i am posting in this thread, is as its to do with the nVidia cards. As you can see i have got a 8600m GT. So should i be using the iAtkos v1.0i r3 instead? On previous installations i have got mac installed, but when it comes to loading it up, the apple screen freezes after a little while. I have been told this is due to the graphics card. So i presume i would need a driver in installation to get it working? Thankyou for reading, sorry its so long! Just really wanna try get this sorted. Adam
